MEXICAN BEAUTY QUEEN PART OF DRUG GANG
This story is seriously James Bond. Laura Zuniga, a Mexican beauty queen was caught with seven men, $55,000 and several assault weapons. They are suspects in a drug smuggling ring. All I can picture with this story is the sultry babe walking up to the bar, a couple of martinis – shaken, not stirred – and the next thing you know you’re in a high speed boat chase and guys with automatic weapons are sprouting from everywhere. Police say they suspect the dark-haired model, who won the Miss Sinaloa and Queen of Hispanic America pageants earlier this year, was the girlfriend of one of the men arrested. Investigators say he is linked to the Juarez cartel, which operates lucrative smuggling routes into the United States. Laura Zuniga has been dismissed as the official Hispanic America Queen 2008. Well, drugs certainly ruined her life. Dethroned, deposed, denounced, probably deflowered, and detained will end this one’s career. Maybe she could be a Bond girl.
NEW ATTRACTION: LAKE OF BEER
Just in time for New Years, a lake of beer was created in Kassel, Germany. Due to a mishap with a brewery delivery truck, the new landmark was created when 1600 bottles of beer came loose from the truck and smashed all over the road. The freezing cold temperatures froze the beer into a lake. It’s unfortunate that the lake will probably be gone by next year’s Oktoberfest. The truck, carrying 12 tonnes of freshly brewed beer, lost most of its load on a sharp left-hand turn at the bottom of a hill, according to Kassel police inspector Wolfgang Jungnitsch. “A sheet of ice quickly formed and the air was filled with beer fumes,” Jungnitsch said. Such a tragedy. The driver is suppossed to facing a fine for not securing his load. I think he should be prosecuted for alcohol abuse. It’s so hard to get good help these days.
