“I read the news today, oh boy ...”
Uncle Jay reports that in the past week, "the earth shook, the sky swirled, the waves crashed, and Beyonce is pregnant!"
In other news ...
• Adam Wilson of the Cardinal Newman Society reports that the majority of Catholic college websites do not have the identifier "Catholic" on their home pages. Given how they describe the state of Catholic higher education, one wonders why they make that sound like a bad thing.
• In Batavia, New York, a man's colorful golfing attire was mistaken for a clown outfit, and he was cited for drunk driving. Naturally, there's more.
• A report from Berlin says that an eight-year-old boy was left in a school bus by the driver. It was rather hot that day, but by the end of it, the boy was found. He rationed his school lunch to last the whole night. Police are investigating the driver for possible negligence. Wow, ya think?
• Finally, police in the town of Elsloo, Netherlands, "battled for over an hour Monday to clear traffic on a main motorway after a cash-in-transit van lost a money trunk, showering the road with 10-, 20- and 50-euro bills." And here all this time I thought money grew on trees.
For now, that's all the news that fits. Ah, but the week is still young. Stay tuned, and stay in touch.
