ABC: Tomorrow is Shiite 'day of reckoning'
This year, August 22 marks the holy day on the Islamic calendar that is the day of reckoning for Shiites. Some Shiite sects believe that August 22 could correspond to the end of the world. And just today, after much hype, Iran has announced that it will continue to develop its nuclear program.

To followers of Iranian President Ahmadinejad, this is a well-timed affront to Israel, the United States and the world. The United Nations had given Iran until the end of the month to respond, but Ahmadinejad had made it clear to all Iranians and the world that he intended to respond on the eve of August 22.

Whether or not this announcement is the end of Ahmadinejad's plans for August 22, one expert says we will have to wait and watch.

1. Here's the news for tomorrow.
Turn on the TV
Turn on the radio.
Turn down that sound
Turn down that sound

Open the curtains
Open the windows.
What's happening around
What's happening around

I'll do some washing
I might go shopping
I'm going downtown
I'm going downtown

Someone told me, "nothing happened today."

I woke up late
I had a headache
I went back to sleep
Go back to sleep

I stood there waiting
Waiting for something
There wasn't a thing
Not even one thing

Someone told me, "nothing happened today."

Harry Hooper living in No. 10
Bought a toupee and glued it to his head
"It looks very natural," everybody said.
But then his wife said "Toupee, isn't that a French word?"
And Harry said, "Ole." She said, "That's a Spanish word."
And he said "O.K., can't tell the difference these days."

I watched TV
Cos I wanted to see
The late news at 10
It came on and then

She shuffled her papers
She swivelled in her chair
She looked up and said

The weather was fair
And then it turned cold
It started to rain
Pouring with rain.

Some people died
Some people were born
And some stayed the same
And some went insane

Tomorrow's Wednesday
Today was Tuesday
And this is the date
March 28th

It was the morning
Then afternoon
And then the night came
And then the night came

Oh...and someone told me, "Nothing happened today."
Yes, someone told me, "Nothing happened today."
It happened today.

3. FEAR FEAR FEAR
I am glad to see ABC took some precious time away from their continuing Jon Benet coverage to scare people.

It's funny that non of the alleged plotters in England actually bought any tickets and many of them didn't own passports!

I refuse to be a participant in the fear fest!

5. And I just went to the bathroom, too
I guess I'll have to wait a while before I can pee my pants in fear with the other manly media studs of America, who all seem to have willies. Or the vapors.
