Morning Edition - 8/1/05

Bring In The Snake Charmers
India is now entering its sixth day of continuous rains. The death toll is said to be close to 1,000 and business is all but paralyzed. In Maharashtra alone, over 924 people have been killed due to landslides. Hospitals are distributing disinfectants to ward off water borne diseases.

The King Is Dead
King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz, King and ruler of Saudi Arabia – the world’s number one oil producing country – is dead at 84. The ruler died early this morning and was immediately replaced by his half-brother and country’s de factor ruler, Crown Prince-Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, 81. Abdullah was already ruling as Prince since Fahd suffered a stroke in 1995. Fahd died at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

Oops, Let Me Take Care Of That
The “Morning-After” pill has been dubbed the catch-all pill, since it prevents egg fertilization. It’s great for women who toss away the thought of protection and swear away a real means of birth control. Now Governor Pataki of New York is vowing to veto a bill that would allow women in New York to purchase the pill over the counter and without a prescription. His office says he would be more apt to approve the bill if it included legislation to prevent minors from purchasing it. Pataki is eyeing the 2008 presidential race and is, in all likelihood, attempting to court the conservative right.
Long Story Short
Carlos C was released from the hospital on Thursday evening. Mr. C is said to be doing well, but is expected to be on a life-long regimen of medication to prevent future blood clots. Freaking Rican is sunning on the beaches of Miami until Wednesday. We’re awaiting reports of hot Latino, scantily-clad men. Stay tuned. Ever drop balls purposely? That’s the story with my dating situation of late. There is just too much going on and though that can be very self-gratifying it can be extremely exhausting. What was the story on Saturday? I’d like to think your friends didn’t get a different version of the events that followed that expensive dinner. Kim S. is coming up on a birthday this week – don’t kill me, but when is it Kimmie? White Party on August 20. J’Moo do you have an outfit? If you don’t, I found a great place for us to shop and turn that party out! BTW: Bobby says he refuses to be seen in white. Caitlin, where is stud-muf from? After your introduction last night, he forwarded his number… is he for real or should I let that number hit the can? Hit me via e-mail.
