Friday's Odds and Ends
The best news story of the decade. All 33 miners rescued from the mine in Chile after being trapped underground for over two months.
Need I say more?
There is a new ethics rule for Texas attorneys. They are now prohibited from having sex with their clients.
So, previously it was okay to have sex with clients?
Truth in Fiction:
"Kids detect marital misery through their skins, not heir brains, the way animals know when to run from an earthquake before the seismograph even registers the tremors." From Raising Jake by Charles Carillo. (A terrific book, by the way.)
Jonah Goldberg recently opined that President Obama let his arrogance take over when he (Obama) quipped, "That's all right, all of you know who I am" when the presidential seal slipped off the podium during a speech in Pittsburg. Goldberg considers the comment self-inflating, "as if to say that the title mattered less than the man."
Goldberg is entitled to his opinion, but what if Obama was simply implying that he was like a friend who doesn't need a name tag at a dinner party. Nobody in that room needed to be told that he's the president.
I'm just saying....
What are some of the headlines that caught your eye this week?
