News and Notes – 7/18/2007

Same time next year. A teacher from Toronto flew thousands of miles across the Atlantic to Wales to attend his friend’s wedding, only to discover he had arrived one year early. He had received an email from his friend earlier in the year saying the wedding was July 6th and assumed he meant 2007. The flight cost him $1,015.

Help! Police! A 38-year-old man was arrested after he called 911 to report that he was surrounded by police officers and needed help. He was charged with misdemeanor misuse of 911.

When it’s over . . . The White Stripes played the shortest concert ever on Monday, July 16 in St. John’s, Canada. The musical duo played a single note (a C-sharp) before hundreds of adoring fans. I have always heard that the secret to a good show is leaving the audience wanting more. (HT: Challies)
