	You can't make this stuff up. You keep expecting Allen Funt to show
up, reincarnated as a would be Spielberg who in reality has channelled Ed

ON-CAMERA TELEPROMPTER READER: "The sinister looking ads were actually
planted across the nation, including here in mid-town, but it was only in
Boston where the campaign backfired."

DANIEL CONLEY, DISTRICT ATTORNEY: "I cannot stress enough the seriousness of
this offense. Commerce was disrupted. Transportation routes were paralyzed.
Residents were straded. Relatives across the nations were in fear for their
loved ones here in the City of Boston."

some terrorism experts on the phone..."

	With a few ominous bars of music, "Breaking News" is splashed on the
screen and away we go to never never land ... where no one is allowed to
admit what everyone knows to be true. News ain't breaking, it's broken,
hopelessly, irremediably broken.

	Tonight is the first time I can remember in a long time that I
