Ironically, He Was Coming From Nurenburg


Sorry, I lost the link to this story, but you can probably find it on Reuters somewhere:

BERLIN (Reuters) - A 46-year-old German motorist driving along a busy road suddenly veered to the left and ended up stuck on a railway track -- because his satellite navigation system told him to, police said Sunday.

The motorist was heading into the north German city of Bremen "when the friendly voice from his satnav told him to turn left," a spokesman said.
And here's the dead giveaway that the article was written by somebody who isn't him/herself German:
Several German motorists have crashed their cars in recent months, later telling police they were only obeying orders from their satnavs. [emphasis added]


This sounds like the work of Colonel Hogan. This would have made a great episode of Hogan's Heroes.

Will we ever have a sitcom based on the Iraq War? (other than the one we're living in now?)

If you follow the M*A*S*H Principle (in interviews, the producers said the show was about Vietnam even though it was nominally 'set' during the Korean War), you could probably think of a sitcom that is on right now that's really about Iraq.
