World News: Diversion

"As The World Turns" was a daytime soap opera watched religiously at one time.  Today Tunisia then Egypt give new meaning to "as the world turns" on 24/7 TV news channels and especially the Internet's gazillion social network sites.  Had enough?

Click on the new video on the right for British humorous insight into how the rest of the world views the news.

Of course there's always the Super Bowl for diversionary tactics today.  Can't wait to see who wins... the ad competition.  Pepsi and Doritos have customer-generated ads in the Five Finalists.  Will Pepsi beat Coca Cola?  Will Budweiser beat the California Happy Cows?  Which commercial will win the coveted $1 million prize?
