“I read the news today, oh boy ...” (Feast of the Precious Blood Edition)

We have recently witnessed an example of the failure of our educational system, and also how some people will say the darndest things, and they're not always kids. (Sigh!)

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

An aide to a Texas congressman said that he was able to live on food stamps for a week, to show that the present form of assistance was adequate. How well did he do? (ThinkProgress)

They say that if you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door. What will they do with a better stapler? (Dornob)

A woman in Georgia had to get her driver's license renewed, but first had to prove that her birth certificate was mistaken in identifying her as male. (Fox 5 Atlanta)

Finally, when Kirkland, Washington, celebrates our nation's Independence Day this year, they will have to move the fireworks about 350 yards farther away from another piece of our nation's heritage. (Reuters)

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