"Fly birdies! ...fly!"
Here is a fresh start for the Newsflash Thread. Here are two big things to remember:
1. This thread is in topside. Everything in the thread is visible to casual internet surfers who visit our site.
2. This is our "radar" - a quick glance reference of reported news flashes by our members. So keep on topic. Any large issue that gets a lot of posts will be trimmed out and a new thread will be created for it. As usual.
