If you’re not first, you’re not last


In his last solo race as an Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps, the greatest swimmer of all time finished tied for second. I was struck when I heard people saying that Phelps “lost” the race.

True. He didn’t win.

But he was the silver medalist!

Royally tricked: prank call no laughing matter

There’s a bizarre story about two Australian radio show hosts who prank called the King Edward VII Hospital in London where Kate Middleton was staying while being treated for severe morning sickness. In the skit, hosts pretend to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. They first speak with an nurse who connects the shock jocks to the ward where Kate was staying. Once the call was transferred, a nurse gave specific information as to her condition.

The prank call happened on Wednesday. Friday morning, Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse who originally took the call was found unconscious, and later pronounced dead from an apparent suicide.
