“I read the news today, oh boy ...” (Late October Edition)

Why is Romney a threat to the porn industry? What does MSNBC need to know about the laws of physics? Who told the biggest lie of the week? How about that Benghazi thing? Hear the latest from the folks at Pajamas Media.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

They say that curiosity killed the cat, but if it discovers a 2000 year old Roman catacomb, its owner can make an exception. (The Guardian)

They also say that money cannot buy happiness, but a man in Massachusetts who was just dumped by his girlfriend is consoled by winning $30.5 million in the lottery. No word on whether she changed her mind. (The Boston Globe)

Also on the subject of making a killing, a man in North Dakota sold a twenty-year-old jug of McJordan barbecue sauce to a Chicago buyer for $10,000. (Associated Press)

Speaking of lotteries, two brothers from New York have claimed a $5 million lottery prize for a scratch-off ticket they bought at their parents' store in Syracuse -- six years ago. (Associated Press)

In a story that gives new meaning to the phrase "we'll always have Paris," a Jack Russell terrier in France has survived after being poisoned and buried alive. (Associated Press)

Finally, a northern Michigan man charged with obstructing the police while dressed as Batman has pleaded not guilty. (Petoskey News-Review)

And that's all the news that fits. As the week goes on, stay tuned, and stay in touch.
