Re: JFK, cont.

95.5 WBRU in Providence had a "Breaking News" update with one of their news
jocks about the JFK situation.  I have never heard a breaking news update on
BRU before (especially on a Saturday) and I am not sure who actually
provides them with their news.  Hopefully it isn't the same news source that
Broadcasting and Cable get their info from. :)
