30 Days/23 Months/158 Years?

We started talking about it at the morning meeting - and that's when Kyra decided she had something to say about punishments fitting crimes. We give you her "What The...?" of the day:

Most litigious, eh? Consider yourself sued!

In case you missed it - one of today's additions to our "What The...?!" File:

A prisoner in the federal pen isn't really helping his own cause.

He's suing the folks at the Guinness Book of World Records - to stop them from naming him "Most Litigious".

Jonathan Lee Riches is the bane of court clerks across the land.

He's filed lawsuits against President George W. Bush... Somali pirates... Britney Spears... and CNN's parent company, Time Warner - among many others.

Some of his 3,124* cases aren't even against people. Unlucky defendants include the Lincoln Memorial, and "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter". (Apparently, he COULD believe it!)

@911: Help!

So you've got an emergency, and you dial 911. Next thing you know, you're on hold listening to Muzak. Believe it or not, it happens pretty frequently here in Atlanta. (Well, there's no Muzak. But still.)

Enter a man, a Blackberry, and a Twitter account.

A Message for Marie

We always try to find "Kyra stories" for our shows - things we know she'll feel strongly about.

As our AP (Associate Producer) D-Lo said the other day, when Kyra cares about a story, you can just tell. You can see it in her eyes and hear it in her voice.

This segment from our second hour today is a perfect example.
