It’s 4th of July Eve – do you open your illegal fireworks tonight or wait till the morning?
All along the East Coast, hurricane parties are being cancelled due to a hurricane. Hurricane Arthur is expected to hit the coast of North Carolina, spoiling 4th of July firework shows. Seeing the people on the coast refuse to evacuate makes me feel a bit better about all the terrible decisions I’ve made this year.
A new Quinnipiac poll of 6,000 Americans reveals that President Obama is considered the worst president of all time. President Obama said he doesn't pay attention to polls---and then he ordered up 6,000 IRS audits.
Southwest Airlines has announced their first international flights... if you don't include the luggage that had previously ended up there.
July 2nd was World UFO Day. It must have been pretty confusing for the aliens. Day before yesterday, everybody in the United States was watching the World Cup, and today, NOBODY is.
After single-handedly blocking shot after shot, US goalkeeper Tim Howard was drug tested after the World Cup match against Belgium. Howard tested positive only for exceedingly high levels of AWESOME.
And a few things you need to know …
On this date in 1608, the city of Quebec was founded by some guys playing scrabble. "So, what am I going to do with this Q and U? Hey, Quebec's a word, isn't it?"
On this date in 1819, the very first savings bank in the U.S opened in New York. It seems odd to open on the 3rd, just so you can be closed on the 4th of July.
Elton John told Britain's Sky News this week that "if Jesus was alive," he'd support gay marriage. Wait a minute -- did something happen to Jesus?
Robin Williams has checked himself into rehab to fine-tune his sobriety. So Robin can avoid the temptations of drugs and booze on movie sets, but he has a hard time saying no to a drunken 4th of July party?
Have a safe and happy Independence Day, and don’t expect a questionably-written news blog till Tuesday. I’m taking off and forcing my man Hurricane Shane to wake up early and do my morning show on Monday. Actually – I should let him write this blog as well so he can put HIS spin on the news. Maybe there’s something to outsourcing after all!
