“I read the news today, oh boy ...” (Saint Etheldreda Edition)

If you want to know what a real news talk show looks and sounds like on television, watch Megyn Kelly of Fox News Channel pull no punches with former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz Cheney. This includes him taking the hard questions like a man and not being a big crybaby, as in “Boo hoo, Fox News is picking on me again!”

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

Today is the feast of Saint Etheldreda, a princess from East Anglia, England, who lived in the seventh century, and who is the patroness of widows and the University of Cambridge. Her intercession is called upon for ailments of the neck and throat. [SQPN]

On the other hand, at a place other than planet Earth, the first humans to venture into outer space will most likely be the beneficiaries of a private endeavor, as opposed to an official government program, in which case they might be cited for trespassing. You have to wonder who will be there to write out the ticket. [Vice]

And now, back to planet Earth for something equally exciting, featuring a guy wearing a suit filled with Mentos (the Freshmaker!) and dropped into a tank of Diet Coke. [Sploid]

Finally, a young boy in Mississippi stepped up to the mic during a church’s Preschool Graduation, wasting no time singing his way through all of the books in the New Testament. And then ... [Country Music Nation]

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