You Choose! Wining & Losing Stories

-Unnoticed Cubicle Death
51-year-old Rebecca Wells went to work on Friday and died while sitting at her desk, and no one noticed until Saturday afternoon.  A security guard found Wells slumped in her chair at the LA County Department of Internel Services.  Authorities don't know the exact time of her death but say she had been dead a full day.  We also don't know yet how the woman died but authorities don't suspect foul play.  Via KTLA

-Grandmother's Birth
A 61-year-old grandmother gave birth to her own grandchild!  Sounds like a scene from a movie, but its actually true.  According to the Chicago Tribune, Kristine Casey served as a surrogate for her daughter Sara.  The doctor who delivered the baby said the delivery wasn't complicated, but the emotional context of the delivery was extremely profound.  Via Chicago Tribune

-Coca-Cola Recipe

A couple of radio producers may have stumbled on the recipe in photograph.  Its a whole complicated story about how the alleged recipe may have been found, but what's most important is what's in it.  According to these producers, the secret ingredients are alcohol, orange oil, lemon oil, nutmeg oil, coriander, neroli and cinnamon.  Coca-Cola is denying that the recipe reveals the secret formula.  Via CNN

    I am very frustrated. I love CNN, but no longer can afford Cable tv to pay to see this news.

    I have looked all over the computer . All I want is an easy access to click on and watch CNN live (like I see it on channel 8 ) here in Hampton, VA.

    I am not all interested in just viewing one individual person. I like the ticker tape news at the bottom of the screen and am always interested in the Breaking News Segaments.

    Can you tell me how to find thisbroadcasting on LINE? Or do you not have it ON LINE. I would apreciated some simple click and view on your web page.

    Re the vote on which story we wanted to hear.
    No one who has watched cnn today would vote for the Coca-Cola recipe.
    I've had it on since 8:00am and know that the "recipe" story has been on at least 3 times already today.
    The unfound body has not been on at all...
    Ali, THAT is why people didn't vote for that story!!!

    Unnoticed Cube Death = Creepy! I know people that worry about dying at home and noone finding them for days. Apparently it doesn't matter because it can happen at work and noone notices there either. I'm sure her family don't think this 10 second spot is frivolous news.

    We are dealing with the most cold blooded killers in the world. They deserve no respect and they should be treated as such. Keep Guantanamo open and send ALL terrorist there and STOP TREATING THEM WITH KID GLOVES!!!! They treat us with all the brutality they can and turn about is fair play!!! The "bleeding hearts" of this country are killing us – – not only financially but by babying the bad guys.

    Please post and promote the segment from Ali Velshi & Christine Roman's Your Money show this weekend that shows the factual, indisputatble graph re: the 30+ year growing disparity of middle class income & wage stagnation!!!!

    It deserves HUGE promotion and attention. You guys are dropping the ball on knowing what to promote and highlight!

    included Pete Dominick.

    95% have been voting for and giving away their interests to the ever growing 5%.

    No more american dream unless that changes SOON.

    But it appears that most — or at least 35-50% of Americans are lemmings and sheep who won't allow facts to confuse their ideology.
