Trump to sue Rosie?

Wow, it’s been a while for me as I’ve been slacking off because of the holidays.  Anyway, thought this was interesting, Rosie opens up on Trump about the Miss USA thing recently, and they both end up in the headlines as Trump goes in for a kill. Rosie says Trump will go bankrupt, Donald says Rosie is a loser. Which one do you think holds more weight?

Executive Producers of “The View,” Bill Geddie and Barbara Walters weighed in on the verbal fracas releasing this statement, earlier today. “Both Rosie and Donald are high-spirited, opinionated people.

A man with a new heart and no pulse

In Canada, a 65 year old man received a new heart called “Heartmate II”. The new device is said to last up to 10 years (on batteries). The man is currently the only living person in Canada (or the world) without a pulse or measurable blood pressure.

Before you know it, we’ll be stopping at the local hardware store on our way to the hospital. Hope they have it in stock!

Mr. Langevin admitted to reporters that, before the operation, he felt his time was up after he suffered his second heart attack in July.

He had the other in 2002.

“I was finished. I had no time left. I probably had only a few months left to live,” Mr. Langevin said.
