Pt. II: Amanda Knox - Italian vs. American Justice
Granted an appeal for review of shaky DNA evidence and questionable testimony against her, Amanda Knox's future now hangs in the balance of interpretation by expert witnesses and supportive evidence. Determine for yourself if you would endorse the Italian judiciary system.

WORLD EVENTS: Amanda Knox mailing address: Amanda Knox, Casa Circondariale Capanne, 06132 Perugia Italy. Pope Benedict XVI, on the subject of child sexual abuse, expresses regret to Vatican officials for Church's culpability and "frighteningly" common mistreatment of children in today's society.

ALL IN THE FAMILY: Follow this: Shania Twain is engaged to the ex-husband of the woman for whom Ms. Twain's current ex-husband, Robert Lange, broke up their 14-year-marriage in 2008.

POLITICAL INTERESTS: Under the category of "What Was He Thinking?" possible future 2012 Republican presidential hopeful, current Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour's past racial comment regarding watermelons.

PERSONALITIES: Dame Edna Everage, a/k/a Dame Edna, played by Australian comedian Barry Humphries laments, "If you have to explain satire to someone, you might as well give up." Other self-descriptive tags include: a mother of 3 grown children, "possibly Jewish," advisor of British royalty, former US presidents, and Australian prime ministers, lilac-colored hair, cat eye glasses, and affectionately addressing her “endearlings” as "possoms." In 2008, the release of her cosmetic collection included nail polish, lipstick, powder, and eye shadow.

SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT: Just how many causes and claims for class-action lawsuits can there be against WalMart?

ALLSPICE FOR LIFE: Milk, cheese, butter and yogurt contain trans-palmitoleic fatty acid which cannot be made by the body. Recent studies reveal this particular ingredient to be linked with a reduction of Type 2 Diabetes risk. However, this certainly does not give cause to consume these dairy products in excess as there could be associated weight gain. Perhaps a better strategy would be to ingest them in dairy products labeled "low fat."
