Construction to begin at CNN's Atlanta HQ: CNN announced today that they would be knocking down numerous interior walls and enlarging the building's front entrance in order to accomodate the ever expanding ego of Ted Turner.
Turner, not known for his modesty, credited his own efforts for helping to end the Cold War, and noted that he launched the Goodwill Games in 1986 as a way to ease international tensions through sports competition.
"I thought, between sports and news and television and friendship, that you could end the Cold War and, by God, we did," he said.
Turner is the rooster who thinks that he commands the sunrise. Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Turner does believe in god; he sees him every morning in the mirror.
