Magician Is Taunted By Cheeseburger-Weilding R/C
You know when you're
hungry? Really hungry? And how that first sight of food makes your
mouth water uncontrollably? Now, imagine you're in a clear plastic
cage and you can't reach the food.
Welcome to David Blaine's world.

The use of aerial forces against Blaine has so far not been
claimed by any faction. But it's not the first time Blane's
manufactured event was interrupted by breaking events. Blaine was
targeted to be flashed. An Internet email widely distributed in
London suggested readers grab their laser pens and head for Tower
Bridge. Only two showed up to lase Blaine.
How many more days of this?
