John Kerry as the new Secretary of State

I have noted that John Kerry just may be the Secretary of State,to replace Hillary Clinton.
Top choice and hope that its passed by Congress.

another 28 dead...when will it STOP

Well its happened again,so 'sick' misfit,gone on the rampage and shot innocent kids as well as adults.
Its time that Pres Obama and BUGGER the gun lobby of USA,put his foot down and did the only decent thing that John Howard did in his reign and stopped and gained gun control.
The Gun Lobby of USA,as big as they maybe are still stupid enough and ugly enough to topple and I am sure that Pres.Obama would like to do something about it.
The major problem here is that the 'allowed to bare arms' is part of the US constitution,BUT these laws can be changed with a pen stroke from Congress.
Its time that this happened,is it not??????
Lets see what happens after the next and the next and the next killings in USA

Terrible thing the two announcers,BUT who is to blame??????

I am surprised that a thread hasnt been opened,so here goes.
I am afraid that I dont believe that the two kids from 2DAYFM are at fault.Being in the industry myself,that sort of things goes thru many pairs of hands before being allowed to go to air,so my questions are
Why did management of 2DAYFM let it go to air.
Why didnt the hospital acknowledge that 2DAYFM had inquired on 5 different occasions to get permission.
Why did it go ahead.
Why didnt the woman who answered the call just hang up on them and forget all about it/why did she put the two thru to another ward.
Why did the woman take her own life.
Why isnt the hospital showing abit more care towards the womans family and why it this left up to the radio station to do something,
Why is it that the British media are making such a BIG thing out of something that happens on radio every day and why is the British media trying to make it look like that these two kids are to blame.
What is/was going thru the mind of the woman and why did she take her own life.

Now before anyone gets onto their high horses and has a go at me,I would like to remind you,that being in the industry and having a committee to get permission to do things,that SouthernCross Media Austereo should know better and it up to THEIR management to sort this out.
We at our radio station arent allowed to operate a talk back system as we have 'skype' and we cant allocate both so we stick with Skype.
It is time that both parties laid their cards on the table,the Daily Mirror in UK along with other members of the media the hospital where the woman worked,and there is more to this than we know,and also the management of 2DAYFM.

Lets get some sort of closure on this god forsaken rubbish
