Milosevic captured, Microsoft freed, and Jack Lemmon dies. What a day.

Not to mention it's my birthday. Oh well.

Oh, and John Cusack's.

And on this day in 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo, thus starting World War I.

Well, he really wasn't captured. He was extradited. According to the article, "Milosevic, 59, has been in jail since April."

It's still big news.....

Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit taking amphetamines.

dcase: three separate URLs embedded in the same line of text. Are you a Memepool contributor in disguise by any chance?

I'd rather see three seperate url's in the same line than three front page posts.

To be honest - I've actually never been to memepool.

Well, he really wasn't captured.

I know. I was going for form over accuracy. "Captured" seems to go with freedom and death better than "extradited". Hey, could have written "Preside over genocide, go to jail!"

I really just wanted to note that this seems to be a three "holy fucking shit" news day & wondered if anyone else could remember any other multiple "omigosh" surprise/big news event days?

This barely qualifies...but I seem to recall a verdict in the OJ Simpson civil trial being broadcast during a State of the Union address by President Clinton...several of the networks nearly suffered whiplash, trying to cover both events.

I'd hardly call Microsoft "freed." Jackson's findings of fact were upheld, meaning MS is still legally a monopoly.
