More News From Downunder....

Capt Suzan sent me this....she's currently crusing downunder....Suzan attended my M100 class about a hundred years ago...

"News coverage in Australia has been great... getting news from all over the world... of course, a large focus is on Asia as this area of the world profoundly impacts Australia and its economy, but the news from that region is generally business oriented or about tourism, but this article caught our eye.

Over the Telegraph Newswire:
Headline: "Beauty contest cliffhanger"
Dateline: Beijing

A CHINESE man hit by the credit crisis held a beauty contest to decide which of his five mistresses to keep.
Named only as Mr. Fan from Qingdao, he invited the women, who had all been told of the each others' existence, to dinner according to local newspaper the Peninsula Metropolitan News. Aided by a friend, who worked for a model agency, and inspired by reality television, he then laid on a competition for them.
One was eliminated during a "looks round" and two more during a "speech round". The final round was reportedly a drinking competition.
The story came to light after the first eliminated mistress took the others and the businessman out for a drive - and drove over a cliff. She was the only one who died."
