Re: “UPDATE: Burger King Corp says Global Warming is Only Baloney in Memphis

It appears Mirabile Investment Corporation was quite prophetic when stating so succinctly, "Global Warming is Baloney." To quote the Thompson twins (circa early 1980's) "lies lies lies yeah (they're gonna get you)."

No mention of tropical depression #4 in your blathering from 15 Aug 2009 at 2:35 PM. Now, your attempt to take credit for "predicting" an event that developed prior to "yer pre-dik-shun" is absolutely cryable.
