Slow News

What is the world coming to? I have spent considerable time today (at least 10-15 minutes) searching the weird and odd news sites for, well, weird and odd news.

Nothing struck me.

  • Renting the narrowest house in New York City seems like a nothing story, even if it measures only 9 1/2 feet wide and rents for $14,000/month.
  • In West Virginia police arrest a woman who stole a hearse- that had a body still in it. Happens all the time in movies, doesn't it?
  • A dog in Wisconsin was trapped in a sink hole for six days. Human interest, but not odd.
  • A man pulls a shotgun and threatens Taco Bell employees in Missouri. They forgot to give him his hot sauce.
  • And in Nebraska they arrested a guy who walked into a police station thinking it was a casino. Yes. he was drunk.
So, since I found nothing else, today was the birthday of composer Gustav Holst who was born in 1874. And since Jupiter is one of the evening "stars" why not put them both together.
