The Plumber That Rocks
That day when Diana was in the car crash.........
I remember it well.........

After a heavy night on the beer........
I hadnt seen any TV all day.......
Sat down with my dinner.........
A lovely cold cider..........
Turned on the TV to watch Liverpool V Newcastle on Sky at 4:00.........

It had been cancelled :|
It wasnt like the crash was anywhere near the North of England :|

I'm still on the fence on that. I watched that loose change thing again the other week.
Fraidy, can i recommend, if you get a chance, you get hold of the following book:

The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11

It's a very interesting read, it's not so much a simple conspiracy book, but it does ask some interesting questions. It's not a 'ram it down you throat' and 'its all a big set up' book it uses a lot of the conclusions of the official investigations and then asks if those conclusions are correct.

I really do think it's worth a read
