Temporary iPhone purchase ban in NY
http://i.zdnet.com/blogs/iphone-att.jpg
Website Consumerist.com is investigating claims of an iPhone purchasing lockout which effect prospective
New York buyers.  US citizens with the 11231 zip code (Brookly) have found that the iPhone could not be
purchased by shoppers on AT&T's website.  Followup contact with AT&T's online sales support from the
Consumerist provided the follow-up response of "New York is not ready for the iPhone" from the support
operator.  Gizmodo received a similar message upon persuing the same type of purchase.  Is this a result
of network strain, sales fraud or whatever but I'd be interested to hear what AT&T has to say about this.
Another follow-up commercial with Luke Wilson just might not cut it these days.

Donkeys escape from live nativity scene in Colo.

http://politics.nashvillepost.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/donkey.jpg



VAIL, Colo. – A living nativity scene in near the Colorado ski resort of Vail

almost had to go without two crucial actors when two donkeys escaped.

The nativity scene is an annual tradition

for Eagle River Presbyterian Church in the Vail Valley.

Pastor Rob Wilson says two borrowed donkeys

were being held in a fenced-in pen for the event Wednesday night,

but the animals pushed their way through it.

A church member who stopped by the church Wednesday morning

noticed the donkeys were gone.

He and a sheriff's deputy followed footprints in the snow

and eventually caught up with them.

The donkeys had wandered near some railroad tracks but were OK.

JOPLIN, Mo. –

Some people won't be getting the Christmas presents they were expecting.

Missouri troopers seized about 20 pounds of marijuana from a car this week

— some of it in luggage, and some in boxes wrapped as Christmas gifts.

The Highway Patrol says troopers found the marijuana in the car they stopped

for speeding on Interstate 44 near Joplin.

Two California women in the car gave troopers permission to search the vehicle.

Both were charged Tuesday

with one marijuana-related count and released on $1,000 bond.

WALLINGFORD, Pa. – A suburban Philadelphia teenager

was suspended for a day for wearing a Santa Claus suit to school.

Michael Hance says he told his principal that he planned to wear the suit

to Strath Haven High School in Wallingford and hand out candy canes.

The 18-year-old senior says the principal told him that wasn't a good idea

because it would be a distraction. But he wore the suit anyway,

with regular clothes underneath.

 

Hance got nabbed a few minutes after he walked into his first class on Tuesday.

The school district says in a statement that Hance was suspended for the day

for "defiance of authority."

Hance says the school could have just given him a detention.

Pope knocked down by woman at Christmas Eve Mass

Dec. 25, 1:30AM

VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI's Christmas Eve Mass

at St. Peter's Basilica got off to a tumultuous start Thursday

after an apparently deranged woman jumped the barriers

and knocked him down on his way to the altar.

In his homily, delivered unflappably after the incident,

Benedict urged the world to "wake up"

from selfishness and petty affairs,

and find time for God and spiritual matters.


At the Vatican, witness video obtained by The Associated Press

showed a woman dressed in a red hooded sweat shirt vaulting

over the wooden barriers that cordoned off the basilica's main aisle

and rushing toward the pope before being swarmed by bodyguards.

She grabbed the pope's vestments as she was taken down,

with Benedict seemingly falling on top of her.


 "(The pope) quickly got up and continued the procession."
