Happy Constitution Day!
OJ Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas after he and five armed men robbed sports memorabilia dealers in their hotel room, at gunpoint. Sorry, OJ: what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas, although you might stay there.
The Worst Generation (sorry, Neil, Tammi, et al) lives up (down?) to its name: adults in the 34 to 55 year old age bracket have are five times as likely to die from an overdose of illicit drugs as they were in 1975; are 30% more likely to die in accidents and suicides than those aged 15 to 19; and are responsible for half of new HIV diagnoses.
Hillary Clinton unveils her health care plan. All Americans would be required to have insurance. That sounds great until you consider the costs. An individual Blue Cross/Blue Shield HMO plan in the New York area costs $812/month ($9,750/year); POS plans cost $1,357.68/month ($16,292 annually). Family coverage costs $29,250 annually for a HMO and $48,876 for a POS. That is about as much as many people pay for higher education.
Jack Henna got a flamingo stuck inside an airport turnstile. The pink beastie was in a 2×3 foot box when he brought it through the turnstile. Said beastie got stuck; he managed to wedge himself out. Firefighters eventually game to rescue the inadvertently caged bird, in an upgrade from the classic cat-in-tree nonsense.
What’s next for the FAA? Banning pink birds? Boxed animals? Tropical fauna? Will they confiscate flamingo pens? Will those coming from Florida be forced to turn over their flamingo shirts?
