News Tidbits

I'm happy the girls missing for ten years were rescued in Cleveland. It's wonderful news for their families, and I hope they throw the book at the kidnappers. But I can do without the 24-hour saturation news coverage and every single detail, thank you.

Here's some depressing news: "10,962,532: U.S. Disability Beneficiaries Exceed Population of Greece".  How embarrassing is that? It's shameful we have a nation of part-time workers and full-time con artists.

A race against time:  "Decades after the Holocaust, experts have documented the names of about 4.2 million of the roughly 6 million Jews who were killed by the Nazis in World War II, and officials are going door-to-door in a race to record the memories of elderly survivors before their stories are lost forever."
