“I read the news today, oh boy ...” (Rogation Days Edition)

You have to wonder how people this stupid manage to find jobs in a good job market, never mind a bad one. This blonde-haired bubble-head doesn't recognize a reference to the flag of the former Soviet Union, and she still gets to tell you the news. No wonder certain people get re-elected, no matter what they do. Or don't do.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

Accidents will happen, but when it causes a single mom to win 14 million dollars in the lottery, she finds a way to cope. What a gal! (ABC News)

Speaking of good timing, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was on hand to save a class of schoolchildren from a creepy crawly spider. PETA is not amused. (AP)

Meanwhile, a town in Pennsylvania may have to go back to its original name of “Mauch Chunk” if they ever lose the guy for whom the town has been named for the last sixty years. (Reuters)

Finally, “Old Mister Johnson had troubles of his own, he had a yellow cat which wouldn’t leave its home; he tried and he tried to give the cat away, he gave it to a man goin' far, far away. But the cat came back the very next day ...” (KNTV-TV)

And that's all the news that fits. As the week goes on (and the drum keeps poundin' rhythm to the brain), stay tuned, and stay in touch.
