Powerful 6.8 Earthquake Rocks Myanmar and Receives Little Attention

A powerful earthquake rocked Myanmar (Burma) this morning, which measured 6.8 on the Richter Scale. However, it's getting little attention in the major media. Check out CNN.com and Foxnews.com and there's hardly a mention of it. Just why so little mention of it by the major outlets? Could it be that Japan and Libya are dominating the news? Perhaps. The earthquake occurred near Myanmar's borders of China, Thailand and Laos, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Chris Brown Addresses His Blowup After Good Morning America Appearance

Rapper Chris Brown addressed his blowup from the other day after an interview on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts. Brown claims that Good Morning America exploited him by deveating from the "script" and asking him questions about Rihanna, which set him off. Brown did apologize for the blowup, but what choice does he have really? All Chris Brown did was further tarnish his tattered image by going berzerk in the dressing room and breaking a mirror.

Weather This Week Makes Us Go "WTF"

Since spring began on Sunday evening, this week has felt like anything but spring. And, the weather got extremely bizzarre last night when a series of severe thunderstorms rolled through the area near Pottstown, Reading, and Chester County despite temperatures in the 30's. Cloud-to-ground lightning, thunder, and hail were reported throughout the area. It's almost unprecedented for there to be thunderstorms with temperatures in the mid-30's like yesterday. Added to that, a tornado damaged homes in Western PA and others were spotted in PA and Maryland. There were also snow showers this morning and even snow squalls reported in Chester County. Temps are expected to be in the 40's all the way until the end of next week.
