Fox News Gets Blasted by Ron Paul Supporters

And the race is on...

The 2008 kickoff for election year has already produced its first explosion as news was "leaked" that Ron Paul would be excluded from a Fox News debate. With the Internet racing at the speed of light, it's hard to separate fact from fiction -- and sometimes even harder to verify just who said/did what when it comes to politics.

So, I started digging past the many outraged Ron Paul support sites, like:

- this mention in the Houston Chronicle
- this mention in the L.A. Times blog
- this mention in the ever popular Swamp Tribune
- and this massive protest page put up by Ron Paul supporters

...finally coming across this story by Left Coast Views, which suggests the entire story was warped.

I'm still uncertain if there actually is -- or isn't -- some form of presidential elect Republican debate/meeting suppose to be taking place with Mike Wallace as the moderator/interviewer on January 6/2008.

But one thing is for certain, any Republican debates -- now and in future -- to be hosted, moderated and/or televised by Fox News would be best to include him as it seems the elderly ob-gyn has accumulated a very passionate following.

I wonder how many emails Fox News received over this?

On another note, the answer to the last riddle...

QUESTION: "How big is the biggest diamond now known to man?"

ANSWER: it's estimated to be approximately 2,500 miles across and weighs approximately 10 billion-trillion-trillion-carats. Needless to say, it's not on our planet. It's actually the crystallized interior of a white dwarf (the hot core of a star that is left over after the star uses up its nuclear fuel and dies) known as star BPM 37093. So, it's not only the biggest diamond known to man, it's also (for now) the biggest known diamond in our galaxy. If you're curious, here's a link to more detail.
