Anorexic Model on Billboard in Milan During Fashion Week

No News is Good News... Geez, try to find weird news on a daily basis - it's not the easiest thing to do. Sure, there is news...but the story on cow dung power is already a couple of weeks old. Today, Halo 3 fans cheer the arrival of the final installment of the successful trilogy of games for Xbox; but, that's hardly weird. And then we have our good ole boy prez implementing sanctions against the military dictatorship in Burma. Important, yes, weird, no (though it is a little humorous to hear him trying to pronounce yet another challenging word). Okay, here is one: a woman with Downs Syndrome swims Lake Tahoe to raise awareness about Downs Syndrome. Strange or bizarre? Nah, but it is quite amazing. Maybe this one qualifies as a spotlight on this blog today...woman designers in Kenya trying to put Paris and Milan off the map as fashion centers of the world. Well, another interesting one, but...

Much to my dismay at the lack of odd headlines today, I have decided to give the grand prize for weird news to...(drumroll)...Anorexic Model Appears in Billboard Advertisement. I am truly sorry, it was the best I could do!
