Fantastic. Does anyone know where we can find video or photos?
I found this on Yahoo News, from Reuters. I hope it's OK to repost it here...

Parandroidx, welcome!! Seems you've been here for quite a while, but glad you have de-lurked! :smile:

Re: copyright, I've removed the article from being reprinted here; links are OK but recreating article content would be a violation. Re: the pictures, I think we're OK there -- it seems to be common form on message communities to share photos. In any event, per our Terms of Service, each of you are responsible for what you post. :wink:

Here's the yahoo version:

Well, then I certainly won't reprint the article, but here's a link to yahoo.news where I just saw this myself!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20050927/sc_nm/squid_dc

Notice they once again report the beastie at 50+ feet. Oh well, can't ask for everything, I suppose...

MSNBC is carrying this news on their site.

The second item in MSNBC's Related Stories box reads: "Report: Jennifer Jason Leigh marries."

I am not making this up.

Clem, MSNBC seems to have developed itself a killer metaphor engine. I find the didgeridoo music story much harder to connect. :hmm:

I've long-since given up; journalists are generally disinterested in facts - they cannot be bothered with homework. Not all are superficial, but you've got to weed the good from the bad, and deal only with them; unfortunately the bad will continue to proliferate crap.
