Nude Recreation

Four days remain until National Nude Recreation Week.
The week will start just as Congress ends its recess.
So it will be a close call.

Asteroid

K.W., a Denver reader, wants you to know that today is Asteroid Day.
But it has been three weeks since the Asteroid 2016 LP10 was discovered just as it passed between Eath and the moon.
And there are  no dangerous asteroids anywhere near us at the moment
That we know of.
Best we can tell.

Repeat offenders in the news

Trump Institute

News Headline: “Trump Institute faces accusations of misleading customers.”
This isn’t to be confused with Trump University, which faces accusations of misleading customers.
And it isn’t to be confused with Trump. . . . .
Wait.
One estimate puts the Internet’s storage capacity at about 1 million billion gigabytes.
There doesn’t seem to be enough space.

In other news. . . .

Lead Water
News Headline: “House office building’s water contaminated with lead.”
Sometimes life is fair.

Hot Coals

News Headline: “More than 30 people treated for burns after Tony Robbins tells them to walk on hot coals.”
Robbins’ followers are recovering.
But this is the important news:
Donald Trump may have found a running mate.

Frontiers of science

Scientist
News Headline: “Red wine may help undo the effects of bad eating, study says.”
Keep up the good worker, researchers!

Crime Scenes
News Headline: “Drug ring leader sentenced.”
News Headline: “Prison sentence upheld for burglary ring leader.”
Everywhere you look, the government is stifling free enterprise.
What jobs have the police ever created?

This just in. . . .

Narcissist
News Headline:
“Study: The world views Americans as narcissists.”
News Headline: “5 reasons the United States is the greatest nation in history.”
QT knows what you are thinking.
No.
The United States is not the Donald Trump of nations.
Uncle Sam has better hair.

We have seen the present, and it does not work

Colby College
According to the Colby College Bias Incident Prevention and Response Team, it is a microaggression against the disabled to use the phrase “on the other hand.”
