NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A package for Tennessee's governor turned out not too jolly for staffers at the Capitol. Safety Department spokesman Mike Browning says officials evacuated the building for almost two hours Wednesday when the mail room found a package addressed to Gov. Phil Bredesen that contained moving parts.

Turned out it was a mechanical Santa Claus.

The department's bomb squad and agents from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were called. The package was destroyed, revealing the Santa from a company in Georgia.

The governor was not in the building at the time.

You know, if politicians were doing a better job at running things, this probably would not be happening.......

Now why would they evacuate the building, they do have portable xray machines that would tell you immediately what is in the box, and usually they are used for all mail in government buildings...

RALEIGH, N.C. - A North Carolina doctor could lose his medical license after a patient complained he made cutting criticisms, including telling her she was fat. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported the North Carolina Medical Board will decide if Dr. Earl Sunderhaus of Asheville overstepped the bounds of professional decency.
The eye doctor's patient complained Sunderhaus poked her thigh and told her she is fat, and also scolded her as irresponsible for being unemployed and relying on taxpayers to pay for another pregnancy.
Sunderhaus admitted he told the patient that her thick thighs and diabetes could cause her to go blind.
He made his points again by writing the patient, Gov. Beverly Perdue and blasting the medical board.

So instead of simply not going to this doctor anymore, someone has to get their diapers in a tizzy and whine about it.
What happened to individual responisbilty, the abilty to control and have desity at your own hands.......
Turn the channel if you don't like what you see,
If you don't want to be called FAT do somewhere else, or drop some pounds...........
Get a life!
Get a job!  while your at it!
