TEEN SENSATIONS, SINGING WAY TO STARDOM (Video Thia Magia)

Thia Magia was only 14 years old when she blew this song out on America’s Got Talent.  Maybe American Idol changed the entry age to 15 years old this year after seeing Thia.  Good thing they did, because these young singers are blowing me away!

CHARLIE SHEEN RUSHED TO HOSPITAL, FINALLY

Charlie Sheen, star of “Two and A Half Men”, was rushed to the hospital today due to severe abdominal pains.  Maybe this is just what the doctor ordered.  His recent issues with his addictions, have caused many to worry about his future.  Maybe this will be the wake-up call he needs to get his act together.

IS RAUM EMANUEL IN OR OUT?

RAUM EMANUEL

Is it just me or is the Raum Emanuel mayoral race getting confusing?   Is he in or out?  I received several news alerts this week and they all changed by the hour.  First they overturned ruling and he could not run.  Then they said he could run.  Now reports state he is back in the race for Chicago’s mayor, since the Illinois Supreme court overturned a lower court’s decision.

So what is the final verdict?  Is this the last of it, because I’m tired of being confused.  How about you?  Well at the very least, he has received a lot of free press and is surely to be the front-runner, if he is actually back in the game.  I always wondered why he would quit his top job in the White House if was not certain he could run.  So my bet is, he is definitely back!

CAIRO EGYPT: PRESIDENT MUBARAK CAUSES RIOTS

Egyptian police had to step in as tensions rose on Wednesday in Cairo.  They fired tear gas and rubber bullets into a crowd of protesters, when thousands demonstrated in Cairo Square to show their anger toward President Hosni Mubarak.

It has been reported that as many as six protesters were killed along with a police officer. Nationwide demonstrations inspired by Tunisia’s uprising, were clearly due to their requests for a way to resolve the extreme poverty and their dislike for Mubarak.

Thousands of protester’s chanted “Down with Hosni Mubarak, down with the tyrant,” “We don’t want you!”  This is a major issue and has been reported that it will cause serious damage to the eastern countries, if they don’t get this under control soon.  Let’s hope Obama does not need to step in, we have enough problems of our own.
