Chinese Democracy In Our Time?

We interrupt Travel Week to comment on yesterday's important, breaking news - no, not the TSE crash - that Guns 'n Roses will be releasing a new single, 'Shackler's Revenge' on the video game Rock Band 2 in September. Speculation is rampant that the long-delayed 'Chinese Democracy' could finally be released before Christmas this year.

All this time was Axl waiting for the Beijing Olympics to arrive before releasing the "greatest album of all time"? If so, shouldn't he be releasing it on August 8, 2008 (8/8/08)?? Will it be an important statement on world politics and democracy in the 21st century??? Or will it be about running from the cops, partying, paranoia and the perils of rock 'n roll decadence, themes previously explored in detail on earlier albums? We wait with bated breath.
