“Pakistan’s governing coalitions splits”
“Car bomb kills at least 25 in Diyala provence [of Iraq]”
“North Korea Makes Plutonium Threat”
And, in news that would be preoccupying cable channels were there nothing going on in Denver (something will happen there, later, right?):
“Hurricane Heads For Haiti”
“Caylee’s mom wanted to give her up for adoption”
