Most Eyebrow-Raising Headline of the Week

"Puerto Rico's high murder rate is creating a huge opening in organ transplant industry for Americans who need surgery" - Reuters via UK Daily Mail

Puerto Rico's murder and non-negligent manslaughter rate of 19.2 per 100,000 people translates into a pool of donors in the 18-30 age range unmatched in the mainland ... "The donors (are) victims of car accidents or gunshot wounds to the head, because Puerto Rico, sadly, we have a very high crime rate."

TSB: It's also creating a huge opportunity for the American taxpayers to bail out the buyers of Puerto Rican bonds which our President announced last week he thinks is only 'fair'! Also great to see Paul Wolfowitz back with Fareed Zakaria flakking for gwb and gwot because we need to get in there and nuke those Russkies before they take over the whole middle east and cut off our oyl! I salute the US media for their consistency along with the flag draped Katy Perry! (reminds me of Gerry Rafferty and 'If You Get Wrong You'll Get it Right Next Time!'). gwb
