In the story sure to go down as the cap of tonight's news, 9 million bees were released after a tractor-trailer carrying their hives crashed on a Montana interstate. After the wreck the bees swarmed, angrily from all reports, and the driver escaped with minor injuries and about 20 stings. If 20 sounds like a lot, one of the beekeepers enlisted to wrangle the loose insects said even with a suit on, he had about 60 stings or so. Maybe by tonight Dan Rather can explain why in the world you'd want to transport 9 million bees anywhere.
