So, here’s T-Ben:
- Protesters in Egypt say President Hosni Mubarak is a dictator, which is true. The Egyptian government is so oppressive, not even the sphinx have the right to remain silent.
- Devyn Rush, the "American Idol" contestant who worked as a singing waitress at a New York diner, was fired after the show got in the way of her work schedule. She wants her job back but unfortunately, it has been filled by Taylor Hicks.
- North Carolina officials report that last year, 31 teachers were arrested on 81 charges of having sex with students. Psychologists say these situations can be emotionally difficult for the kids who are picked last.
- The Congressional Budget Office reports that Social Security will run a $45-billion deficit this year, establishing it as the federal government’s most successful program.
- In Utah, a girls high school basketball team is being called “unsportsmanlike” after winning a game 108 – 3. Obviously, it was a humiliating loss for their opponent, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
- Keith Olbermann and MSNBC have parted ways. There’s a clause in his contract that states he can’t return to TV for six months, but industry insiders say he could probably work on CNN without anyone noticing.
Sgt. T-Ben's daily radio segment, "The News You Need Now!," on WTIXFM which debuted in June 2004 and airs 3 times during the Michael In The Morning show, is a tongue-in-cheek mock news report concerning local politicians, national celebrities and various topical news stories, concluding with his signature catchphrase, "Nobody cares!"
