With at least four aftershocks being registered, following yesterday's 5.8 eathquake that shook the east coast, some New Yorkers are understandably shaken, to say the least. According to USGS officials, there may be more to come. They say typically, the greater the tremor, the greater and longer extent of future aftershocks.

Finally, this is certainly not the time to let our guards down. In case you have not heard yet, Hurricane IRENE may be heading our way. So this is the time to plan ahead just in case Hurricane winds come to US.

Where is the world is Moamamar? Who are these rebels?

In 1999, Qaddafi escaped judgment by turning over two underlings to pay for his criminal murder of 270 innocent people eleven years earlier in 1988.

In 1988 Qaddafi murdered all 243 passengers and 16 crew members on Pan Am Flight 103, which he had bombed. In addition he killed Eleven people in Lockerbie, Scotland, who died as large sections of the plane fell on the town and destroyed several houses.

It would have been nice if NATO had taken Qaddafi out back in 1988, or even in 1999.
