Clutching at straws on a slow news day

In the wake of the media swarm that descended on Namibia after the birth of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's kid in Namibia, the Southland Times breathlessly reports that 'Venture [Southland] board member Wayne Affleck seized on ... new opportunities for Southland: "So what you're recommending is that we invite pregnant celebrities to Southland to give birth. Why not?"'

And while you're at it, why not arrange the Second Coming in Invercargill?
