Here are some one liners...
A Death Census in Hispaniola -- The Spaniards run a census and find a lot of Indians missing. They have probably died of disease.
Cop Cams and News on the Rialto -- The Rialto is a banking and marketing center of Venice and it is on fire... literally. I also talk about Rialto, California that is experimenting with Cop Cams.
The Church's White Elephant and the Death of Debt -- The King of Portugal gives the new Pope a white elephant. I talk about the Pope's excessive spending and the difference between personal debt and government debt.
