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

One of Obama's former classmates says that he claimed to be of royal lineage. All this and more from the folks at Pajamas Media.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on (and this week, above) planet Earth:

In what could explain a brief reference in the above video, fans of Vice President Joe Biden have started a fundraiser to buy him a Pontiac Trans Am. (

Speaking of fast living, a man in Naples, Florida, crashed a young girl's birthday party, wielding a machete and attempting to steal beer. (Naples Daily News)

Did vice-presidential challenger Congressman Paul Ryan seat the "bean story" from the late Kurt Cobain? Is there copyright protection for baby nicknames now? What's up with that? (Newsy)

Finally, this writer was at church on Sunday morning, and only after leaving was among the last to learn about THIS! Cue the second video. (AP)

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