Hey:

The fourth negative news about Puerto Rico, in one day....

Nothing positive has been posted, about the island, during the first 3 days of 2011.

Let's compare the news posted for this thread with one posted, at the same time in Topix' Hawaii forum:
Big Island birth is state's first bundle of joy for 2011

<p>The title of Hawaii's first baby of 2011 goes to a little bundle born one minute after midnight at the North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea on the Big Island.</p>
<p>She weighs in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces, and her parents &mdash; Kahi Brooks-Richards and Layne Richards &mdash; are still deciding on the perfect name for her.</p>
<p>&quot;We're calling her 'baby girl' for now,&quot; said Brooks-Richards, 32.</p>
<p>She said it's &quot;pretty cool&quot; to have Hawaii's first baby cradled in her arms.</p>
<p>&quot;It's a great way to start the new year,&quot; Brooks-Richards said, adding that she didn't know what time her daughter was born until beaming nurses told her.</p>
<p>The Puna resident should probably be given a pass for not watching the clock, though. She had been in labor for 20 hours when her daughter finally made an appearance.(Brooks-Richards' daughter was due Dec. 28, she said).</p>
<p>The couple also have a son, 2-year-old Haweo, and say the little family is complete with its newest addition.</p>
<p>&quot;That's it,&quot; said Brooks-Richards yesterday.</p>
<p>Brooks-Richards' baby was born 24 minutes before Oahu's first baby of the year.</p>
<p>Tehani Chiemi, weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces, was born at Tripler Army Medical Center, the same hospital where her mother was born 20 years ago tomorrow.</p>
<p>Noelle Tamashiro said her daughter's &quot;first baby&quot; distinction is a novelty. Christmas, New Year's, &quot;either one is fine,&quot; she added, &quot;as long as she's here.&quot;</p>
<p>And though Tehani is Oahu's first baby this year, she's actually a little late.</p>
<p>She was supposed to be born on Christmas Eve.</p>
<p>In Tamashiro's bright hospital room yesterday afternoon, where media representatives gathered to interview the first-time mom and her daughter, the young woman's parents had big smiles as they talked about their new little family member &mdash; and also remembered back to their own daughter's birth at Tripler.</p>
<p>Having the island's first baby of 2011 &quot;is special,&quot; said Tamashiro's father, Nolan, who retired from the Air Force. Tamashiro's mom, Sharlene, joked that the family would have been ringing in the new year a little differently if her daughter hadn't gone into labor &mdash; by shooting off fireworks in Pearl City.</p>

I'll tell you what's causing these savages to get asthma -- it's the damn mud that they keep their huts together with. Damn Puerto Ricans, stop worshipping chickens and instead build a real house. Mud people.

Evidently you mud savages are cross-eyed too. Things were spelled correctly in the first place. Now go have sex with one of those nasty hairy-backed swine known as Puerto Rican women.
