The slow news week

Investigators are in Colorado today, trying to figure out what caused that Continental jet to skid and crash on takeoff over the weekend. Fortunately (I think we use the miraculously word too much), nobody was seriously hurt.

Whatever the reason for the incident, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t this: Drag-racing jets.

As you probably have guessed, this is the slowest news week of the year. It’s a three-day week. Stories that usually can’t see the light of day, find a place on the news agenda this week. I can’t wait to find out what they are.

    Ack. Unfortunately, that reminds me of the slow news period that surrounded the Indian Ocean tsunami, which my family first heard about after getting a call from relatives in Norway…
