U.S. State Department officials have identified photos previously believed to be of North Korean missiles in their silos, as being forgeries. “Upon further analysis, we have come to the realization that the photos we originally believed to be of North Korean Ballistic missiles in their silos, are in fact photo shopped pictures of lipstick containers,” announced Wiley Knapp, assistant head of State Department counter intelligence. “Originally, we were fooled into believing that our spy drones captured a group of North Korean missiles preparing to launch,” he added. “It’s not too often we get fooled like this and we are a bit red-faced by it all,” said Knapp.
Initial analysis indicated a problem and as a result an alert was sent out to all U.S. forces in South Korea and the Sixth Fleet , stationed in the Sea of Japan, according to sources in the Pentagon. U.S. Fighter jets were scrambled but, were called back immediately upon realizing the error,” said Timothy Dalton, Pentagon spokesman.

Back into the Light
The Ewing Family, long believed dead, have recently resurfaced from the protective custody of the U.S. Marshall‘s Witness Protection Program. The family members went into hiding back in 1991 after several unsuccessful attempts to murder them. The family patriarch, J.R. Ewing, despite being shot many years ago, was the first to speak to the press about their decision to come out of hiding. Ewing told a reporter from the Dallas Times Herald, “We’ve been hiding for a long time on the advice of the Marshall Service and we just got tired of being on the run.” “Besides, all of our bitter enemies have died off and we figured it wouldn’t ever be safer than it is now,” he added. J. R.’s brother Bobby, himself also shot at one point, said that he is glad they are finally free and able to go back to Southfork. “That ranch is home to all of us.” “That’s where we belong and that’s where I want to be,” he commented. “The only regret I have is that mom and dad didn’t live to see this day,” he added. Apparently, Jock Ewing and his wife Ellie passed away while in hiding,several years ago. Ewing’s vivacious niece, Lucy, looking quite fit and trim, was also at the press conference and added her feelings about the family’s new-found freedom. “It’s really a big relief to come out of hiding after so many years.” “I just couldn’t take living in that small town in Idaho any longer.” “I was nearly at wit’s end.” “Besides, some of the locals were beginning to get wise to the fact that we weren’t Amish from Pennsylvania,” she added. “That ruse was getting pretty old.” It appears the family were living under the pseudonyms, Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Charlene Tilton while in hiding.
The Ewings are expected to retake ownership of the Southfork Ranch in the very near future and plan on moving back in as soon as possible.
