Happy Saturday, Bombastics! What a weird news week that was. I suspect that things will only get stranger.
In the good old days, we used to theorize that people like Bill Gates or Martha Stewart were the Antichrist. Who would be your candidate for that position today? Do you recall mimeograph/ditto machines, and if so, did you not inhale deeply of every test paper the teacher passed out? What is your favorite kitchen appliance/electric? What’s on your bucket list? How many juries have you served on? Did you enjoy the experience? What sports (if any ) are you good at?

If you don’t think the Pope retiring isn’t connected to the lights going out at the Super Bowl and the meteor shower, you are not Dan Brown.

John McCain is going to be on Meet The Press Sunday, I think to talk about invading that asteroid before it comes back.

Was going to take a cruise but decided to stop up my own toilet and save money.

We could have saved a lot of time this week if the Russian meteorite had hit the poop ship and killed Chris Dorner.
