Blowing off steam over train line

In the news:

I'm so sick of people going on about the Casino-Murwillumbah train line. Am I the only one?

Yesterday it was the Nationals promising, maybe, to bring a commuter train back to the region. Really?

I'm all for catching a train instead of taking the car, but surely the idea of getting a commuter train back into this region has been derailed enough times for people to realise that it is not going to happen.

What do you think?

Uncertainty over train line

On a lighter note:

Men should stay away from chicken if they want to maintain their hair and virility.

Bolivian president Evo Morales told an environmental conference that chicken producers inject the birds with female hormones 'and because of that, men who consume them have problems being men'.

He also suggested eating too much chicken for too long could make men go bald.

But chicken producers in Europe, the United States and many other countries say they abandoned the use of hormones in poultry several decades ago and many if not most Western nations ban them outright.

So there is no longer a case of the chicken and the bald egg!
