Some newsy things

  • A guy takes Crystal Gayle's tour bus as an escape vehicle. I'm sure that if Gayle had been in that bus at the time, the man would have turned himself in to police in exchange for a guarantee of a silent cell.
  • Some kook thinks that "An Inconvenient Truth" is a liberal finger-in-the-eye to Judgement Day. This proves that even the anti-Bible Belt has its share of ignorant fools.
  • Life in prison for cheating spouses? And you thought lord-and-master laws were bad.

This isn't breaking news, but I needed to mention it regardless. Did you know that potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers are in the family of deadly nightshade? That's right. Go Google this. I'll wait.

What the hell? Did some long-ago salad-maker, whilst looking down at the meal he'd just prepared, think to himself, "This salad looks pretty good, but you know what would make it better? Deadly nightshade!"

Huh. Who knew that just by eating tomatoes and eggplants I was living "dangerously?"

(Don't tell Peccable. He already thinks too many healthy vegetables/fruits are a danger to him.)
