WORLD PREDICTIONS FOR 2004

Posted December 12, 2003 

It is sometimes difficult to place events in TIME when it comes to  visions for the year ahead.  Events or patterns seen for the beginning, middle or end of the year may happen sooner or later.  Timing is the most difficult aspect of psychic prediction.  It is not unusual to be a year or more off with important patterns or events. I first started posting my predictions on the WWW back in 1997, but I haven't kept them all for your perusal. When I started slipping on political patterns, I decided it was time to hang up my political shingle, which seems obvious since I predicted Gore, Dean and Kerry! Oh, well! I did predict the Reagan and senior Bush terms with complete and total accuracy!

HOWARD DEAN will likely be the DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE for the presidency in 2004... and PRESIDENT.  (Prediction first made July 7, 2003) 1/2 Drudge Report: "FLASH: Democrats Would Choose Dean Over Kerry if the Election Were Held Today." "DEAN: 'Dealing with race is about educating white folks.'" 1/4 Drudge Report: "DEAN Scores a Double: Face on Covers of TIME and NEWSWEEK."  1/5 CNN: POLL: DEAN starts 2004 leading Democrats." 1/6 Washington Post:: "Dean Gains Bill Bradley's Support."  1/9 Drudge Report: "Iowa Senator Harkin Endorses Dean." 1/12 Drudge Report: "Rob Reiner and Martin Sheen to Stump for Dean in Iowa." 1/13 CNN: POLL: "Dems Would be Happy with Dean or Clark."  Why not be happy with Dean and Clark??? In that order, I might add.  See my 2003 commentary on this point. 1/14 CNN: "Dean First, Sharpton Second in DC Vote." Washington Post: "Dean Wins Protest Primary." Drudge Report: "Jimmy Carter for Dean...two high-level supporters of Dean said they expected former president to offer formal backing... " 1/15 CNN: "Braun Quitting Race, Will Endorse Dean." Drudge Report: "Poll: Three-Way Tie for Top Democratic Spot in Iowa: John Kerry, Howard Dean, Richard Gephardt." 1/16 Drudge Report: "Dean Slips, Clark Gains in NH."  "Dean Edges Lieberman, Clark in Florida, South." "RNC Has Three Times More Cash on Hand Than DNC." 1/20 Drudge Report: "Dean Blames Third Place Finish in Iowa on Attacks." Washington Post: "Drama Rises as Dean Slips." 1/21 Drudge Report: "Dean Holds Slim New Hampshire Lead Over Kerry." 1/25 Drudge Report: "DEAN IS BACK ... Race Pulls to Within 3 Points." 1/27 Drudge Report: "Kerry Pulls Big Win in New Hampshire, 39% of Vote, Dean 24%." 1/28 Drudge Report: "Dean Shakes Up Presidential Campaign, replacing his campaign manager with a longtime associate of Al Gore." "Gore OP Given Dean Reins." 2/5 Drudge Report: "Dean Says He Must Win Wisconsin or Be Out of Race." 2/6/2004: I still think DEAN can do it!  I just put my money where my predictions are!  GO DEAN, GO!  I just don't see Kerry winning the White House.  Do your part and contribute to the HOWARD DEAN CAMPAIGN!  2/9 Drudge Report, Yahoo News: "Dean Now Says He Will Stay in Race After Wisconsin: 'It's critical," Dean said, "But it's not the end of the line." 2/10 NY Times: "Quote of the Day: "Over the last three or four days we have had enormous pressure from the people who raised us all the money not to drop out." HOWARD DEAN." 2/15 Drudge Report: "Dean Rejects Calls to Quit Presidential Campaign." "Dean Announces General Chairman is Out."  2/18 Washington Post: "Kerry Wins Wisconsin Primary After Close Race, Edwards is Strong Second, Dean Finishes Third."  CNN: "Source: DEAN TO SUSPEND CAMPAIGN." I don't like being wrong about these things, but I did predict Gore would be president the last round.  I'm not infallible and I've always tried to explain that to my clients who can be too quick to give me too much power.  Ego does not enable this WORK.  I'm going to stop predicting elections!  So there!  And I'd still like to see Howard Dean become president of these United States and so would my spirit guides.  They don't like being wrong either!  We'll just have to see what happens between now and November.  At least election day doesn't fall on my birthday this year! 3/2 AOL News: "Dean Wins Home State of Vermont." 3/26 Drudge Report: "KERRY CHRISTENED by Gore, Clinton and Carter, endorsed by Howard Dean."  Not everything a psychic tunes into is gospel!  Keep that foremost in mind.  But then, weathermen, doctors and lawyers make mistakes, too! October 3, 2004: Seems to me that KERRY has a very good chance of winning. (1/27/2008: I regret I ever told George W. Bush that he had a bright future in politics when his father was president. Oh well! You can't win them all.)

There will be a definite sadness the first month of 2004 with TRAGIC POSSIBILITIES around the FULL MOON of January 7th when the planet Mercury has gone direct.  1/3 Drudge Report: "Egyptian charter jet with 148 aboard crashes into Red Sea." 1/7 Drudge Report: "1 Dead, 34 U.S. Soldiers Wounded in Mortar Attack." 1/8 CNN: "Hospital Black Hawk helicopter down south of Fallujah, Iraq, killing all 9 aboard."  1/8 AOL News: "Three Children Feared Kidnapped in Georgia, 3 adults and 10 month old baby found slain." CNN: "Suspect Kills Self, Girls alright." 1/10 CNN: "IRAQ Mosque Blast Kills 5, Wounds Dozens."  1/14 Drudge Report: "Suicides of U.S. Troops Rising in Iraq - Pentagon."

POWER STRUGGLES are likely on a big time basis the first of the year and probably all year…this is an election year! 1/9 Drudge Report: "Clark guarantees no Sept. 11th-type events in his presidency." "Two Democrats Accuse Dean Camp of Dirty Tricks." "AP: While Governor, Dean accepted speaking fees, gifts from special interest." CNN: "Bush space announcement draws jeers, cheers." "Dean takes flak about Iowa comments."  "Bush Savaged by former Treasury Chief." "O'Neill Calls Bush a Disengaged President." 1/10 CNN: "BUSH planned Iraq war pre-9/11, says ex-aide, O'Neill." "Kerry swipes at Dean in Iowa caucus race." Drudge Report: "Cheney Would Back Ban on Gay Marriage." 1/11Drudge Report: "Senior administration official: 'O'Neill's suggestion is laughable.  No one listened to him when he was in office.  Why would they now?'" A war of words is definitely here!  Drudge Report:  " O'Neill: 'Bush's performance at cabinet meetings resembled that of  'a blind man in a room full of deaf people.'" "Iowans have never seen a political battle like the one that has begun to unfold; scope of the ground war outstrips anything from past caucuses." 1/13 CNN: IRNA: "Iran's Cabinet May Dissolve." 1/14 Drudge Report: "Poring Through the Boxes: Kerry's Dirt Diggers on Dean Turn Aggressive in Vermont."  1/15 CNN: "O'Neill Author Denies Using Classified Material." Drudge Report: "Wes Clark Made Case for Iraq War Before Congress; Transcript Revealed."  1/16 Drudge Report: "Spanish politician labels Blair a "dickhead" on live TV." "Revealed: Kerry Advocated Gutting Agriculture Department."  1/17 Drudge Report: "Clark Wins Endorsement of McGovern." 1/19 Drudge Report: "CLOSEST IN HISTORY: Tight Four-Way IOWA Race Kicks Off Democratic Race." 1/20 AOL News: "Kerry Wins Iowa, Edward Second, Gephardt Dropping Out." 1/22 Drudge Report: "Kerry Sails Past Dean for New Hampshire Lead." 1/24 Drudge Report: "NEWSWEEK POLL: Kerry Edges Bush in Match-UP; 52% of Voters Don't Want to See President Re-Elected." "Kerry Holds Lead But Race May be Tightening." 1/25 Drudge Report: "ANDY ROONEY ─ Send Bush to Mars."  I second that suggestion!  1/26 Drudge Report: "Federal Judge rules part of Patriot Act unconstitutional." 1/27 Drudge Report: "National Review's Rich Lowry Reports: Kerry 36, Dean 31, Edwards 12, Clark 12 in early NH returns." 1/28 Drudge Report: "Edwards Rejects a Kerry─Edwards Ticket." "Angry Blair Claims Vindication." 2/3 Drudge Report: "John Kerry Wins Democratic Primaries in Delaware, Missouri." "Edwards Wins South Carolina." "Lieberman Abandons Presidential Race."  2/4 CNN: "Kerry Rolls, Wins 5 States, Edwards Takes SC." NY Times: "Clark Claims Win in OK." Washington Post: "Race Solidifies With 5 Kerry Wins.  Clark, Edwards prevail in must-win contests.  Dean finishes without a victory." 2/6 Drudge Report: "Gephardt to Endorse Kerry." 2/6 NY Times: "Online Voting Canceled for Americans Overseas." 2/7 Drudge Report, Washington Post: "Revealed: General Clark's Papers.  Clark Papers Talk War and Politics." Drudge Report: Kerry Wins Washington, Michigan Caucuses, Dean finishes second in Washington with 30% of vote." 2/9 Washington Post: "Kerry Easily Wins Maine, Dean Second." 2/10 NY Times: "Violence Spreads in Haiti; Toll is Put at 41: An armed uprising spread to at least a dozen towns in western and northern Haiti, the strongest challenge yet to President Jean-Bertrand Aristide." 2/11 NY Times: "Clark Ends Presidential Run; Edwards Finishes in Second." 2/12 Drudge Report: "CAMPAIGN DRAMA ROCKS DEMOCRATS: Kerry Fights Off Media Probe of Recent Alleged Infidelity, Rivals Predict Ruin." "In an off-the-record conversation with a dozen reporters earlier this week, General Wesley Clark plainly stated, 'Kerry will implode over an intern issue.'"  2/15 CNN: "Kerry Wins Nevada, DC Caucuses." 2/16 NY Times: "Top Dean Aide Discusses Plans to Back Kerry."  1/19 CNN: "Now Its Kerry Vs. Edwards." 2/22 AOL News: "Ralph Nader Announces Run for Presidency."   2/25 CNN: "Kerry Wins 3 More States: Idaho, Utah and Hawaii." 3/2 CNN: "Kerry Takes All: Edwards to Drop Out of Race on Wednesday." 3/3 NY Times: "Massachusetts Senator Kerry Effectively Captures Democratic Nomination." "Sprinter Now Faces a Marathon Against President Bush."  CNN: "Super Tuesday Kerry Champ Looks to Fall Matchup."

WEATHER PATTERNS remain EXTREME.  GLOBAL WARMING is a FACT.  Wind, rain, wildfires, forest fires, floods, mudslides take their toll.  A SEVERE WINTER. 1/2 CNN: "Storm floods creeks, closes roads in Northern California." 1/4 Drudge Report: "380 Dead in South Asia Cold Snap." Drudge Report, Local6.com, Eureka, CA: "'Rogue' Wave Sweeps Man, Child, Off California Coast." 1/5 Drudge Report: "Midwest Snow Blast Snarls Travel, Shuts Schools." 1/6 Drudge Report: "Cold Snap Grips U.S.A." 1/7 Drudge Report: "SNOWBLAST Brings Much of OREGON to Standstill.  Worst Storm in a Decade."  Conservation International: "Climate Change May Threaten More Than One Million Species With Extinction."  1/10 Washington Post: "Arctic Cold Blasts Northeast, minus 26 degrees in some places." 1/10 Drudge Report: "25 Below in Vermont."

"Bitter cold blamed for 2 deaths."  1/14 CNN: "New England put into deep freeze."  1/15 Drudge Report: "Gore to Warn of 'Global Warming' on New York City's Coldest Day in Decade." But what these critical people don't understand is that extreme temperatures such as this are part of the deteriorating global weather process, extremely hot summers and extremely cold winters.  Wake up, media people, smell the coffee! Drudge Report: "Northeast Hit With Historic Winter Blast." "34 Below in Mount Washington, NH." 1/16 Drudge Report: "Freeze Halts Flights."

Martin Beniston of the U.of Fribourg says last year's heat wave was not like those that occurred in 1947 and 1976, and more like conditions that might be expected towards the end of this century. He hopes governments will use the heat wave as an indication of "a shape of things to come" to devise new strategies for coping with future climate change and global warming." 1/25 Drudge Report: "Winter Storm Reaches from Kansas to South Carolina." 1/25 CNN: "Winter Storm Kills 15 on East Coast." 1/26 Drudge Report: "Fatal storms batter Europe."

ASSASSINATION is not out of the question in January.  The passing of notable figures mark the month. 1/1 CNN: "Novelist, screenwriter, Dunne, Dead at 71." 1/6 CNN: Dominica PM Dies of Heart Attack, 49."  "Fashion photographer Scavullo dies at 82, did Cosmo for 30 years." 1/15 CNN: "Uta Hagen dies at 84, renowned theatrical performer, teacher." 1/16 CNN: "First Wives Club" Author, Olivia Goldsmith, Dies of complications after plastic surgery, 54, book made into movie starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton." 1/18 Washington Post: "Legendary Hollywood Producer Ray Stark Dies, 88: Funny Girl, The Way We Were, Night of the Iguana."

"New Iraq Blasts; Many Kurdish Casualties, Over 100 Dead." 2/7 NY Times: "ASSASSINATIONS TEAR INTO IRAQ'S EDUCATED CLASS: Hundreds of intellectuals and administrators have been assassinated since May in a widening campaign against Iraq's professional class."  Such a pity!

Intensified OFFENSIVES in IRAQ are also emphasized with increased casualties. 1/5 CNN: "Four soldiers killed, 3 wounded."  1/9 AOL News: "U.S. Military Deaths in Iraq Approach 500 since the time War Began." 1/18 AOL News: "Strong Car Bomb Shakes Central Baghdad, 20 Dead, including 3 U.S. Soldiers, 60 wounded."

NY Times: "Up to 80 Killed in Bomb Blasts at Two Iraqi Sites." It seems to me these days that HELL is a place called IRAQ. 2/15 NY Times: "25 Slain and 40 Wounded as Raid on Police Frees Prisoners." The killings continue on an almost daily basis.  I will not record them all. 2/18 CNN: "Twin Iraq Blast Kills 2." "Twin suicide bombings kill 11 Iraqis." 3/2 CNN: "Dozens Dead, Wounded as Blasts Hit Baghdad, Karbala." "6 Dead in Attack on Shiites in Pakistan." "Two Attacks Kills More than 140 in Iraq." 3/15 NY Times: "GI Toll is Rising as Insurgents Try Wilier Bombs and Tactics." 3/16 AOL News: "Americans Killed in Iraq were Baptist Missionaries involved in a humanitarian water purification project."

Take care, watch your driving and your temper! 3/18 NY Times: "Car Bomb at Baghdad Hotel Leaves at Least 27 Dead." "Kosovo Torn by Wildest Violence Since UN Took Control in 1999: 8 killed, 200 wounded."

AOL News: "Brutal Battles on New Fronts: 30 Troops Killed in 3 Days." For the most part, I do not know myself what the words of my predictions mean until the events occur.  I just pay attention to the messages from my spirit guides, which all of you should do as well. ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION!  4/8 CNN: "Rumsfeld: U.S. FORCES ON THE OFFENSE." Drudge Report:  I said it long before Ted Kennedy: IRAQ IS BUSH'S VIETNAM.  Maybe the Senator reads my page?  4/9 NY Times: "As Fighting Rages, Insurgents in Iraq Kidnap 3 Japanese." CNN: "U.S. Suffers More Casualties, Gaining Ground." 5/17 Washington Post: "Iraqi Governing Council President Killed."

EARTHQUAKES and VOLCANIC rumblings could well fill the headlines.  12/26/2003 World News: This could include the devastating earthquakes in California and Iran that just occurred in December. 1/1 NY Times: "For the Orphans in Iran, the Ordeal Has Only Begun." 12/31/2003 Science Daily: "Survivors of BAM Earthquake Urgently Require Health Supplies, Medicine." 1/2 AOL News: "Severe Quake Hits Indonesia, Bali, 29 Said Hurt, Dozens of Buildings Damaged."

The RING OF FIRE has been highly active this year with many small quakes in California and Alaska as well as in the Pacific.  Check out: EARTHQUAKES! 2/25 Washington Post: "Quake in Morocco Kills at Least 550, Destroys Villages, still searching for victims."  3/7 ECTV: "Mass Elk Deaths in Wyoming May be Tied to Seismic Activity." 3/13 AOL News: "Moderate Earthquakes Shakes Taiwan." 3/30 AOL News: "Iran Dramatically Revises Down Quake Toll From Last Year's Devastating Earthquake to 26,271." Still a tragic number of losses in terms of human lives. 4/2 Drudge Report, KTVU.COM: "SCIENTIST PREDICT MAJOR SO CAL QUAKE WITHIN 5 MONTHS." 4/17 ECTV: "Yellowstone Super-Volcano Quadruples Its Activity." 6/28 Drudge Report: "6.6 Hits Alaska, with at least 12 earthquakes in the area during the last 24 hours: This is the Ring of Fire!"

Paso Robles, Preliminary 5.9 Mag., Felt from San Francisco/Sacramento to N. of Los Angeles. Swarms in 3. and 4. Range Follow, Developing..." "One or two quakes a minute at Mount St. Helens."  9/30 Drudge Report: "5.0 Quake in Central California again for the third day." 10/2 CNN: "Mt. St. Helens Continues Its Threat to Erupt." She only hiccupped. Wait until she BURPS. 10/3 Yahoo News: "Western Mexico's Volcano of Fire Spews Lava." This is part of the Ring of Fire. Drudge Report: "Alert Raised for Mt. St. Helens." 10/8 Drudge Report: "Large Earthquake Shakes the Philippine Capital of Manila." 10/23 CNN: "Two Powerful Earthquakes Shake Northwestern Japan Over 2 Hour Period, 2 Dead, 90 Injured, toppling homes, causing blackouts, cutting water and gas service, and derailing a bullet train."  More Ring of Fire activity. 10/24 CNN: "Japan Awakes to Quake Devastation: 3 powerful quakes, 18 confirmed dead, over 1500 injured." Something equally devastating is about to happen somewhere on the other side of these. I hope it isn't on the U.S. West Coast. It could be in Asia. 10/25 CNN: "New quake hits northern Japan." 11/10 CNN: "Earthquake shakes Mount Rainier."

STRESS AND STRAIN in corporate places could well be complicated with NATURAL DISASTERS adding to their difficulties.  Major losses possible. 10/2 General Media and agricultural disaster: I would say that the 4 hurricanes in Florida apply to this prediction.

FROM 2003 PREDICTIONS: URANUS entered PISCES the first time on MARCH 10, 2003.  This was the beginning of dramatic changes affecting OCEANS, RIVERS and STREAMS.  It was also the start of dramatic PSYCHIC IMPRESSIONS for the masses, a quickening in CONSCIOUSNESS around the globe over a seven year period.  PROPHETIC DREAMS now become commonplace.  All matters of the PSYCHIC, UNCONSCIOUS REALMS surface with startling REVELATIONS on a worldwide basis to include greater confirmation of LIFE AFTER DEATH and the survival of the soul.  3/14 Yahoo News: SCIENTIST CLAIM PROOF OF AFTERLIFE:  Scientists at the University of Arizona have done extensive research, and say that they have the proof that when we die we continue to live beyond our physical bodies. "Almost anyone who sees the data says there's something real here," said one of the researchers.  Allison Dubois is a spiritual medium, or someone thought to be able to communicate with the dead.  Christine Vettore was brought in for a reading with Dubois, who attempted to contact Vettore's dead relatives.  "I'm hopeful that there's an afterlife so I can see everybody I've lost already," said Vettore.  It doesn't take longwithin seconds, Dubois says Vettore's daughter is coming through.  It is a gift Dubois says she's had her whole life, but it comes with a lot of criticism."  Any psychic or mediumistic gift comes with a whole lot of criticism, but there are many gifted mediums and psychics around the world doing the WORK to prove that the third dimension is not the only aspect to conscious living.  LIFE IS ETERNAL. 9/24 2011 CNN/John Blake: Do loved ones bid farewell from beyond the grave?

WEDDINGS receive much publicity in MARCH and APRIL. How about December? 12/15 CNN: "Russian Tennis Star Anna Kournikova and Singer Enrique Iglesias are MARRIED."

Nominated for OSCARS: LORD OF THE RINGS, COLD MOUNTAIN, MYSTIC RIVER.  With RETURN OF THE KING wrapping up the superb Tolkien trilogy that I happen to love ... it's my bet that LORD OF THE RINGS will SWEEP the OSCARS this year!  We'll see!  There are a lot of good movies out there.  Especially tough call this time around! 1/11 AOL News: "RETURN OF THE KING" Wins Critic's Choice Award, best acting ensemble, best director." 1/12 CNN: "Pirates, Hobbits Take Top Awards at People's Choice.  PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN takes top picture award, RETURN OF THE KING wins best drama award." 1/18 CNN: "Produces Guild of America names "Rings" best picture." 1/25  "LORD OF THE RINGS" sweeps GOLDEN GLOBES: "Best Director, Best film score, Best Original Song, BEST DRAMATIC PICTURE."  I told you so!  LOOK OUT OSCARS....HERE COMES LORD OF THE RINGS!  Drudge Report: "RINGS King at Golden Globes." 1/25 CNN: "RINGS Dominates Globes."  1/27 Drudge Report: "LORD OF THE RINGS Receives 11 Oscar Nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director."  I seem to have been wrong about the nomination for COLD MOUNTAIN for Best Picture, except Renee Zellweger and Jude Law were nominated for their acting and the picture received  5 other nominations.  I'm pleased SEABISCUIT made the cut for Best Picture!  Excellent film!  2/8 AOL News: "Peter Jackson Wins Top Directors Guild Award for LORD OF THE RINGS, RETURN OF THE KING." CNN: "Hobbits capture key Hollywood award." 2/17 CNN: "RINGS Shines at UK Oscars...Best Picture." 2/22 CNN: "RINGS Wins Again: British directors name third and final "LORD OF THE RINGS" movie as BEST INTERNATIONAL FILM." 2/22 TNT, Screen Actors' Guild Awards: "LORD OF THE RINGS, Return of the King, Best Ensemble Cast Motion Picture."  I may not be able to pick a president, but I guess I can pick a MOTION PICTURE!!! I guess my spirit guides want to keep me humble???  And honestly, I can't wait to leave this psychic work behind me. 2/24 CNN: "RINGS Hits $1 Billion Box Office Mark: second movie ever worldwide." AOL Best Motion Picture: LORD OF THE RINGS, THE RETURN OF THE KING. 2/29 AOL News: "RINGS is Lord of the Oscars.  11 Honors ties Titanic."

AOL News: "Jackson Honored for "Rings" Finale." 3/1 Drudge Report: "Rings Blowout: Matches Records Set By Titanic, Ben Hur." It is unfortunate that all the fine actors involved in bringing this 9 hour Tolkien trilogy to the screen were not nominated for their superb character work in a wonderful story that will continue to thrill movie fans and theatergoers around the world for a long, long time to come.  But then, if these actors had been nominated for their fine acting no one else in any of the other films would have received any recognition at all last night.  Hobbits, elves, dwarves, wizards and a handsome king  would have reaped all of the awards!  And I do hope that some of the financial rewards generated by these films and the sale of videos and DVDs will be shared with these deserving and talented actors!  It's a big relief to be right about LORD OF THE RINGS! I'm going to see RETURN OF THE KING on the big screen again!  I love the movies!

PUBLIC ARGUMENTS are called debates.  Tempers flare all around.  Politics?   Hmmm!

Those with POWER move FORWARD, stragglers are left behind.  By JULY some change their minds. 7/7 News Media: "John Kerry Picks John Edwards as VP Running Mate." In the past it seems these decisions were made at a convention???  (I don't remember this happening before the conventions. Times have certainly changed.)

BELOVED OLD TIMER or two pass beyond the veil.  Gratitude is mixed with loss.  FAMOUS MOTION PICTURE STARS leave the Stage of Life and are well remembered. 3/19 Drudge Report: "J.J.

How many thousands are going to die before it's over? 7/28 AOL News:  "Suicide Bomb Kills 68 in Iraq." "Doctor Group to Withdraw From Afghanistan due to 5 members of its group being killed." 8/7 CNN: "Marines Report 300 Insurgents Killed in Najaf." 8/26 CNN: "At Least 25 Dead as Mortar Hits Kofu Mosque."

FIGHT and FLIGHT are involved...but where do we go?  6/3 AOL News: "CIA Director Tenet Resigns." 8/20 NY Times: "Friendly Fire: The Birth of an Anti-Kerry Ad: Texas Republicans and vets angered at Kerry's take on the war."

DISGRACE for a WOMAN of prominence accompanied by much publicity.  Fairly disgusting.  3/10 CNN: "Martha to Quit Her Company."  NY Times: "Now, the Search for the Next Diva of Domesticity."

MAJOR WINNINGS in a court of law…but can you really get blood out of a turnip?  9/11 CNN: "Kobe Bryant Rape Case Dismissed."

Humanity seems to have forgotten its HUMANE nature in many parts of the world. My prayer is for consciousness to raise to a higher, more compassionate expression. Forgiveness needs to be practiced by all, though it is hard to forgive those who murder innocent victims in a senseless war. 7/12 Drudge Report: "Explosion Cuts Power at O'Hare Airport in Chicago." 7/14 CNN:  "Car Bomb Kills at Least 10 in Baghdad." 9/10 CNN: "Deadly Blasts Hit Turkey Hotels."

"CBS Coordinated Bush Bash With Kerry Campaign; Aide Talked to Retired Guard Officer."  9/22 Drudge Report: "Cigarette Makers Lied for 50 Years."

I see Julia Roberts holding a baby!  A boy it seems.  Congratulations! BINGO!  6/3 AOL News: "OSCAR WINNER JULIA ROBERTS PREGNANT WITH TWINS." One could be a boy....or even both!  We'll see! 11/28 AOL News: "JULIA ROBERTS GIVE BIRTH TO TWINS. IT'S A BOY! IT'S A GIRL!" I was right on 1 count! And I was certainly right about babies, and this prediction was made last December, so there!
