More From The News

It's been quite a week for wonderful news headlines. Let's start with a caring thief...

  • Pa. man tells thief he's homeless, gets stuff back
Compassion can make a difference. But I'm amazed that a homeless man would have anything the thief would want in the first place.


Then we travel across the pond to one of my favorite places...
  • Spain says 'Adios' to smoking in bars, cafes
Quite a change for one of the smokiest countries I have ever visited. I can't imagine what the smokers of Spain are thinking about it. It was bad enough when we did it here in Minnesota.


This one is another in the long line of stretches of the imagination and human knowledge that shows up on a regular basis these days...
  • Astronomers say they've found oldest galaxy so far
I loved the last two words: so far. The numbers are so great that they might as well say it was a couple hundred gazillion light years away.


And finally...
  • Swiss archaeologists find 5,000-year-old door
The only response I could think of: "Now all we need is a hole in a 5,000-year-old wall to put it on."
