This story sure has changed quite a bit this morning.. Man Shot and Killed After Fight Over Car Accident | WOAI.COM: San Antonio News

I think it started out as a suicide, then they changed it to a chase after a robbery (still is on KSAT: http://www.ksat.com/news/18563188/detail.html (broken link)), and now it's a road raging grandpa. Will the real story please stand up

quitnet should let you join.........the little gadget is sort of cool, it will tell you how many you haven't smoked. You just put your quit date, how much you smoked, and I think it asks you how much you pay per pack--so I've actually probably saved more money--lemme go look for it. Oh, that's right, shoes, junk food, and gas.

That's a very sad story. I hope the mother cow is doing better now, but I don't think anyone ever gets over losing a child...

Oh man, a grieving animal is one of the saddest things that can happen.

To all you quitters...remember this:

"Quitting smoking is easy, I've done it a thousand times." - Mark Twain

Is it just me, or does the headline on the front page of CNN that reads "Did Army set hundreds adrift at sea?" bother anyone else?

I clicked on it knowing that it wasn't the US Army they were accusing, but still...why leave the headline ambiguous?

Can someone point me to a news source that doesn't try to get cute with headlines, doesn't try to sway people with a political lean, and doesn't make everything "Breaking News"?


btw - it was the Myanmar army...

I had to bite it, otherwise I was going to be dragged in somewhere I didnt' want to go..

and I've found a lot of "news" sites take parts of headlines and leave out other parts. Great example would be when Rush said that if obama is heading to socialism, then he hopes he fails. cnn simply headlined "rush hopes obama fails" and unfortunately that works on a lot of people that don't have the time to actually read the entire article..

Yellow journalism sells...been like this since the 18th century. Newspapers are in decline these days...so they do whatever they can to get you to read their stories*

*even if it means they embellished the story a little
