The "Rock", Duane Johnson, was tweeting it an hour before Obama's speech. I rely on the WWE for all my breaking news.

Let's hope Emily was just sitting in her car with the engine off or someone else was driving. Surely she wouldn't be on twitter and driving at the same time.

Keaton - Tell your father we are deeply moved on hearing of the passing of the Ontario Boating League. I did just check and there is no mention of it at the KKK (Kansas Kayaker's Klub).

I heard that a 2500 pound sea carp swallowed him up.

Buried at sea, so no body? Let the conspiracy theories begin.

I think they did so because they did not want a grave site to which others could make a pilgrimage.

Come on, we all know it was Gibbs, Ziva, McGee and DiNozzo. Of course Abby was guiding them.

Abby did the DNA - in fifteen minutes, just like she does it on NCIS

Wasn't Obama's off-the-cuff, impromptu, non-rehearsed, sans-teleprompter speech simply inspiring? And he used the word, "God" at least twice and said half of the pledge of Allegiance.

I find myself breathless...

Skipped your physical again? Harder to hit those golf balls if you can't control your breathing!

We're told the rising gas prices are a result of all the unrest in the Middle East, but what does that have to do with the equally rising price of the E85 fuel? It always stays 50 cents below the unleaded regular price.

I found out on facebook. It was either right before or right after Steve J. "started counting down the days until Rockfest."

My neice, glued to here phone, told the family.

Okay, Pace touched on it -- so what is up with FoxNews using a U and calling him Usama bin Laden instead of Osama? Are they really trying to insert U.S.A. into everything? Just asking.

Clancy99, instead of Barry, try President of the United States Barack Obama.

My mother called me while I was in the middle of a good book. Told me to turn on the TV, because they were saying Osama Bin Laden had been killed.
