A Flying Man    Passes an arriving aircraft at 3500 ft near an airport. Maybe pilots should breath into a breathalyzer upon landings?

The U.S.  Military    Sees long war in Iraq/Syria (A short war speeds up budget cuts).

Football    High scoll game stopped for rough play.  Hmnn … maybe one of the teams came from Israel …

 College Students    Riot during pumpkin festival; turned over cars, threw firebombs. What are they teaching these kids?

U.S./U.N. aid is going to ISIS during an “anguished debate’ over the needs of civilians in ISIS-held areas.

A  Senator   in the current midterm elections may be first to cost $100 M. Looking at the ridiculous pay of big shots these days, they can afford it … But can America and its people?

A Texas Beer Pong  losers shot up a party, wounding 1 woman. We can remember when that would have been bad manners; he should have picked a man …

The EPA   is moving into the regulation of drinking water, heretofore a local matter.

Boko Haram , now that the 270 schoolgirls it kidnapped aren’t news anymore, (The Nigerian government can’t be bothered with Christians) has just kidnapped some more. They make good sex slaves … and can be sold after use.

Truth in advertising … a woman was Choked   and thrown on the floor (still breathing) by a man who left his state to meet her and complained that she didn’t look like her Internet photo.

Hillary:  Latest quote: “Don’t let anyone tell you businesses create jobs.” Must have been spending too much time with Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. In fairness, all the politicians say dumb things on occasion; mostly they’re lucky and no one records it.

Finally, we learn that Vegetarians   per a study,  have much lower sperm counts …(Make it rare, please)

Thus another weeks’ human goofiness escapes our clutches.  Too late for regrets, but we can laugh …
