Party Brings Notoriety to Australian Teen
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, with congratulations to Corey Delaney.
He's an Australian teenager who decided to host a party while his parents were away. He posted an invitation on the MySpace Web site, and 500 people showed up. They did $20,000 in damage before police sent in dogs to break up the party. Now the 16-year-old is famous in Australia. He's got a manager, and he'll become a deejay in a series of parties across the continent.
It's MORNING EDITION.
