Good news (We’ll return to normal in a moment) on the medical front: Two approaches are providing lab-grown replacement body parts and entire organs for people. This opens a new era in medicine and in living.
Porcelain dolls that some mothers thought resembled their daughters seemed “creepy” when they appeared anonymously on 8 neighborhood doorsteps. A police investigation turned up the donor, a lady who knew the girls from church … Sometimes, things are ok …
Fast Food workers (or the union trying to organize them) having failed to materialize their national “strikes” for the last two years, are now planning to proceed to massive (paid demonstrators) public protests with civil disorder, per reports. Wonder what the target $15 hr. will do to burger prices? Got to be good for ‘immigrants’ though …
School bake sales recently banned by the Federal Department of Agriculture (fattening, you know) are now coming under local protection in a few states. Some places just don’t care about the children!
Coal producer bankruptcies are escalating under pressure from newly expensive government regulation and cheap natural gas. The happy greenfolk are not worrying about where Americans will find sufficient electrical power as they and the government want us to use less of it. Stock up on warm clothing …)
If GMO “Frankenfoods” grab you, how about GMO babies? New in-vitro techniques are causing a fuss in the U.K. (Let’s see: We want a blue-eyed, blond white African-American with a Chinese brain …)
Kidnapping is quietly raising millions in ransoms from Europe and we guess, from North America, enriching the Moslem terrorists who are increasingly battening upon it, especially in Africa.
A grandmother was jailed for public sex at a retirement community. Something seems wrong, here …
You remember that per the Constitution, all revenue bills must originate in the House, don’t you? Now, note that the nation’s debt has risen some $7 Trillion since President Obama took office and the Republicans took the House … But somehow, only the Prez gets mentioned. Pretty slick!
The Wall Street Journal finds that more companies are closing than new ones are opening as our ‘recovery’ proceeds.
Toilets are apparently proving to be a problem in India. The government, anxious to modernize and to prevent disease, supplies them to rural villages where they are ignored in favor of the fields that have served for centuries. If recent reports are correct, the U.S. now shares the problem, imported with hordes of Central Americans who seem to share the Indian tradition. In the U.S. though, it’s not the fields that suffer, it’s the facilities where the recent flood of ‘immigrants’ is living …
A HUGE technology jump is in sight; engineers have found a way to provide small Wi-Fi devices that work without batteries. This seems a key to the much-discussed ‘internet of things.’ It has been demonstrated; if it proves out, it will reshape the future, hyperbolic though that seems.
Death Valley reports a summer low temperature record (Global Warming bulletin).
A Woman went for a nice swim, in the seal pool at the zoo.
Another woman happily posed for a store photo, holding the stolen credit card she was using for her shopping. The police later appreciated her helpfulness.
A CNN Poll found trust in government at the lowest in history. (But we still reelect these people. Or so we’re assured as they return regularly to office.)
A Man was found using a leafblower on his yard, naked. (The man, and we assume, the leafblower as well.
In a potentially troublesome finding, a teen poll discovered that You – Tube stars are preferred over the Hollywood variety. Will the teens change as the age or does Hollywood have a future problem?
Italy has ever-so-quietly with the media hardly noticing, fallen back into recession. “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
And finally, on her first day of school, a Teacher was found in her classroom, drunk and without pants. From what we see of the public schools these days, we can sort of understand …
Which caps another week of ‘normal’ human life on planet Earth.
