The conference call with Ann Margret was difficult in part because the rules up front were to limit questions to that episode, which aired four months ago, and her nomination for a best dramatic guest spot Emmy. But the members of the press were up to it, lobbing softball questions invariably preceded by fawning comments. Or stupid ones. One genius asked what Elvis would have thought of her performance.

Discovery of Laura Garza’s body spurs grief – and murder investigation
BY Rocco Parascandola
DAILY NEWS POLICE BUREAU CHIEF
April 28th 2010
For 16 months, Elizabeth Garza slept with her cell phone on, hoping against hope her missing daughter, Laura, would call.
That changed last Friday, when authorities identified Laura Garza’s remains in a field near Scranton, Pa.

Occasionally people call things FAILs, when they aren’t really that FAIL. I look for the glimmer of goodness in everything, so this is another edition of some FAILs that I don’t think are really FAILs.
This guy worked hard every day of his life to become a VP at a huge insurance firm. The hard work paid off, and now he can impress all, y'all with this sick ride. You only call this a FAIL because you're so gosh darn jealous.
I know you're acting like everything Chris Brown does is a FAIL. But he's holding a very cute puppy, and unless that dog has rabies, is not a FAIL!
Is there a better way to teach health students the miracle of life, then by illustrating it on a cake? It's like that old saying: "all knowledge stems from Angel Food".
You read it wrong. Not only are they offering you free internet, they're also offering a free Hi-Fi stereo receiver WITH phonograph, Edison would be so proud!!!! Bring your square-dancing 78s to room 216, and we'll have such an irreverent party!
The FAIL lies in misunderstanding the sign. But I think we can sort this out. To the writers of this sign, I know by writing "no bikes" you also implied "no SUVs" but I think that the driver missed the implication. Perhaps the driver was from a low-context culture, where things need to be expressed more explicitly. Cultural sensitivity, learn it bro!
Why is this a FAIL, when you know that Google rights all of your wrongs?
Question, where are your nails? This is only raunchy if they are on your crotch. I'll give you a partial FAIL, because they call this the "grand opening" but it's been there for six months.
I guess this shows the endemic FAILs perpetrated by predatory lenders. This toddler can barely do anything without her pacifier, and she's already $38,375 in debt. Why did the financial institution give her such a huge credit limit? They knew she's ineligible to work, on account of strict US child labor laws.
Oh so sagging isn't cool anymore? C'mon sagging was awesome in junior high. By sagging below his knees, this fellow is taking us into the future of fashion.
What? Everyone in Denver loves Brian!Occasionally people call things FAILs, when they aren’t really that FAIL. I look... more
Each day this week seemed to bring news about the fate of Hummer, America's polluting elephant in the room. Early in the week it seemed that an obscure Chinese machinery company called Sichuan Tengzhong would buy the General Motors marque for $150 million.
But as it turned out, Tengzhong couldn't get its act together. Chinese banks withdrew lending offers and American banks are weary of becoming involved. Tengzhong even tried to go through a subsidiary outside China to buy Hummer, according to Chinese media.“The deal is on the ropes, if it’s not on the canvas yet,” Michael Dunne, the president of a Hong Kong auto consulting firm told The New York Times.
Also, the Chinese government didn't approve regulation for the deal. Why, you might ask? The New York Times reports, that it's in large part because "senior Chinese officials are trying to put a new emphasis on limiting China’s dependence on imported oil and protecting the environment."
And to think that in the early days of the Iraqi war, the Hummer epitomized pro-America. Now that sustainability is on our radar, it would seem that things have changed. Now everyone wants in on a piece of the sustainability pie.
As of Wednesday, the bid is off. Hummer could be destined for the junkyard. A New York Times editorial said, "We suspect the deal collapsed because the Chinese Communist Party — which rarely shows much shame — is worried about China’s image as the most polluting nation on the planet."
GM said it would shut down Hummer after the Tengzhong's bid collapsed.
Then on Thursday, Hummer had a come-back when news broke that GM contacted four Chinese companies to gauge interest in the brawny military-derived SUV.
It’s unlikely a Chinese firm will buy the entire unit, analysts said, but the firms may only be interested in buying parts of Hummer's assets (i.e. tooling and equipment at Hummer's Louisiana factory.)
In response to GM's announcement, Detroit Free Press joshed that "flags across oil-rich Saudi Arabia were lowered to half-mast while the entire Exxon/Mobil board of directors were seen at a group grief counseling session. On Wall Street, oil speculators were jumping from windows while in Michigan, some people were mourning the possibility of a world without Hummers."

Two researchers from Victoria University found that, "The eco-pawprint of a pet dog is twice that of a 4.6-litre Land Cruiser driven 10,000 kilometres a year," New Zealand's Dominion Post reported.
The researchers, are professors Brenda and Robert Vale, and they've authored a provocatively titled book called, "Time to Eat the Dog: The real guide to sustainable living."

We had once a story about a Russian guy who has turned the military vehicle into a passenger car. This one is another of that kind, but way bigger, though lacks in the interior beauty. Still they have there now:
1. The mechanical gear stick was replaced with electronic joystick which is connected to electro driven gear box. Now they can switch the gears as easy as on a video game, before one had to have a huge muscle power to switch the gear on that Russian tough thing
2. Disassembled old army seats and put new ones, from the Chrysler minivan.
3. Improved the noise insulation.
4. Changed all the windows to the new ones, more thick, more nice.
5. Installed a rear-view camera and the monitor.
6. Put in a multimedia station, with hi-fi audio, video and wireless headphones for passengers.
Now they can take a ride more safely on Russian roads, and would find their way at any condition, that’s for sure, even on Russian federal highway “Lena”.We had once a story about a Russian guy who has turned the military vehicle into a... more

FORT WORTH — Carl Aasletten thought he was approaching just another puddle.
He was about a block from his house, in the 3000 block of Owenwood in the Tanglewood neighborhood northwest of TCU, when he decided to make what he called a "lazy left turn" onto Harlanwood Drive.
But that innocent-looking puddle turned out to be water resting on top of a sinkhole that swallowed his Chevrolet Tahoe, headlights deep.
"It wasn’t a torrential amount of water," he said. "It was just enough water not to alarm you."
After a few attempts, a tow truck company eventually got his car out of the hole using a truck with a boom after about four hours.
The city water department expected to have the 8-inch cast iron line that caused the mishap repaired shortly after midnight. The street will remain closed, though, until crews have a chance to repair the damage.
Mary Gugliuzza, a water department spokeswoman, said the water main pipeline beneath the street had ruptured before Aasletten got there, and the leaking water washed out the dirt under the asphalt.
When Aasletten drove over the spot, the weight of the SUV punctured the asphalt causing it to sink.
It could have been worse for Aasletten, though.
The pipe that caused the sink hole also kept the SUV from falling farther into the hole — crews found that the front left tire was resting on the pipe once they drained the hole.
Gugliuzza said the incident should serve as a reminder to avoid suspicious puddles like the one that swallowed the SUV.
"If you see the water bubbling up out of the pavement, don’t drive through it," she said. "You don’t know what the situation is underneath."FORT WORTH — Carl Aasletten thought he was approaching just another puddle.... more
