Photo shows German Shepherd enjoying flight

Not to be facetious, but how do they know by just looking?   Or did it fill in a customer satisfaction survey?


Adele says she would ‘probably have died’ if she hadn’t quit smoking

Yes, because the death rate of people in their 30s smoking is sky high.  Very few make it to their 60s or 70s.  


Kris Jenner kicks off the Kardashian Kristmas

Kool!   (Kill me now)

What would Santa drive? A super-wagon of some kind, of course

I have an idea.  Next time there is a bank robbery, they should run a native advertising piece on “What did the robbers drive for the getaway vehicle, and what would have been a better choice?”

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
