Saturday Survey

Heroes of the Week: Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers : These US scientists from Boston this week confirmed they have developed an anticancer "smart bomb" which delivers a lethal dose of drugs directly to tumours. Hopefully further progress will be made in this field.

Villains of the Week: Loyalists: Not only did they continue their violent bloody feud this week, they also dismissed the suggestion that they follow the IRA's lead by decommissioning and ending their armed campaign. That is unacceptable.

Funniest Moment of the Week: Google and Paris: Well I quite liked this to be honest.

Dunce of the Week: Osama Bin Laden: It was revealed this week that he planned to buy large amounts of cocaine, spike it with poison and sell it to the United States. Wow Osama, kill off all their junkies. That'll really show 'em! Moron.

Celebrity of the Week: Damon Albarn: This week he slammed Pete Doherty. "People talk about this great talent, but there's nothing to him. He's a mess. I'm starting a campaign to 'Make Doherty History'. He's well over-rated." Well said, Mr Albarn. Though I always preferred Oasis to Blur...

Luckiest person of the Week: Dolores McNamara: This Limerick woman has only gone and won over €115m!

My favourite moment of the week: Hearing the IRA's announcement: I welcome their statement and I remain cautiously optimistic for the future. I also hope this reignites the issue of Irish unity in this country.

Quotes of the Week: "The leadership of Óglaigh na hÉireann has formally ordered an end to the armed campaign" as well as "All IRA units have been ordered to dump arms. All Volunteers have been instructed to assist the development of purely political and democratic programmes through exclusively peaceful means. Volunteers must not engage in any other activities whatsoever." - Provisional IRA statement

Hopefully this will signal the beginning of a brighter future for all of us.
