Welcome to Friday 1 March 2013, the time is Seven, roughly.
Today's headline story; Muriwai Beach will reopen tomorrow, Saturday, following Wednesday's Shark Attack. The Horrific, Scary and Totally Unprovoked Shark Attack occurred on Wednesday to a Muriwai Local, a person who was just like you and me. All comments on media Sensationalism aside, pretty freaky huh? Also, here's an article encouraging us to refer to them as encounters instead of attacks. Meanwhile, Wellington acts as if it's never seen dolphins before.
In world news the Pope's resignation took effect this morning (NZT), leaving the Church in a rush to get a new one in place before Easter.

He still may, however, face prosecution for "aiding the enemy" - which is a bit like Treason, but also isn't...apparently.
