WHERE HAVE YOU SEEN BILL'S RECORD?
« on: July 20, 2011, 07:42:40 AM »
I would like to start a thread on where people are hearing about Bill's 311 pass. This is what I have gotten:

1.) Associated Press out of Portland and Baltimore have called.
2.) Fox News and Fox online (it is in the leasure section online)
3.) Today show ran it on the bottom ticker tape Tuesday.
4.) WBZ in Boston.
5.) Fox in Tampa interviewed Bill on the road.
6.) Paper in Virginia ran the story.
7.) LA Times requested pics and info.
8.) Paper in Berlin requested info.
9) KWTK in Waco Texas ran it.
10) WMAZ in Macon GA

Keep 'em coming.

Stopped by the local garage/gearhead hangout here in Ashfield MA yesterday noon to spread the word, local from the neighboring town of Plainfield had beat me to it by 10 -15 min, said he had heard about it that morning on the radio.  Didn't catch what station, if I find out I'll let you know.

I would guess the news did not make any of Rupert Murdock's publications. He is pretty busy right now.

Does that Jalopnik story mean that the Ack Attack record of 376(two way average) set last Oct. is now superceded?

My point exactly. Another example of sloppy journalism from that idiot.
