News Flash


I've got your news for the day right here:

Wages continue to stay flat. Cost of living continues to increase. More people lost their homes. The stock market was up again.

Some teams won. Some teams lost. Some player got traded. Some player said something stupid.

We've been at "war" now in the Mideast for far longer than it took to win World War II.

The weather will be sunny, unless it's not. Consult the sky in the morning, and then again in the afternoon.

Non-violent offenders continue to clog up the jails and prisons. They are almost exclusively poor. There is no serious effort to rectify this crime.

There might be another super flu coming out of Asia, possibly. No one knows for sure.

Another government agency was obeying the industry it was supposed to be regulating.

Every politician is running on the slogan of "change," for 30 years now.

Some celebrity has some new movie coming out.

And I am still madly in love with you.
