- The head of the TSA is freezing the number of airports who will use contract security instead of TSA screeners because he doesn't see much point in it. No kidding? A government bureaucrat is deciding to make sure that the public has no choice but to use the 'services' of his agency?
- Egypt's economy is tanking because foreigners are taking their tourist money and getting the heck out of Dodge. Really? Tourists don't like going to places where CNN is showing pictures of violent protests and riots?
- The mid-west and Plains states are bracing for a rather nasty blizzard which is expected to dump snow and ice over a large part of the country. No fooling? It's bleeding January and they're surprised that it's snowing and blowing on the plains?
- If a person wants to lose weight or maintain a good body mass ratio, they should eat less and exercise more. Really? The magic bullet for weight control is to follow your grandmother's advice of "Eat your vegetables" and "Go outside and play"?
For the newsies out there, please start reporting things that we don't expect to happen, not things that can be predicted. The rest can be filtered out and no-one will complain.
