I hate these biased headlines. Why is it always "Ice Sheet The Size of Delaware"? Sure Rhode Island gets the occasional mention, but it's almost always Delaware. What's wrong with saying it's an ice sheet the size of Vermont or New Hampshire? Even Long Island would be nice for a change. They're all about the same size. Would throwing a little love towards Connecticut or Massachusetts for slightly larger ice sheets be too much for these egg head meteorologist and geologists to consider? How about Prince Edward Island for our Canadian neighbors? Who knows ice sheets better than the Canadians? They've got to risk life and limb walking out on ice sheets to club those man-eating baby fur seals before the fiends can reach land.

Ice sheets the size of Delaware, my ass. What's next, "Cows Bigger than Shetland Ponies Spotted in Nebraska"? Help stop the Delawarian media bias and alarmism while there's still a chance. I thank you.

And, of course, the Thylacine, an extinct penguin-like marsupial from down under.

Think of the hundreds of thousands of penguins on that ice sheet free and heading north at last, Al.
