Well, today I read a story about a man in Austria who sawed off his own foot so that he could continue to receive jobless benefits. That's pretty crazy.

I'm not sure if it is crazy...but I read a story about Octomom being investigated by CPS b/c her living conditions are deplorable. Her kids don't have beds to sleep in, she locks them out in the cold without pants on until they finish their lunch, her house is filthy, yet she spends HUNDREDS of dollars on getting her hair done.

I'm a few days late, but today's Mining Journal out of Marquette headlined a story about the Upper Peninsula seceding from the state to form a 51st state. Apparently the last time this was attempted, it failed by one vote. I think it would be very interesting if that could happen... Lansing might as well be the other side of the world from here and although I'm not from here and not that involved in politics, it seems they are just really clueless. They say they want to create jobs in Detroit but keep the U.P. basically has a huge wildlife preserve. We need jobs here, too!

So, anyway, I thought that was interesting.

My DH grew up in Marquette and we lived there for 2.5 years before moving to Iowa...that would be interesting! And yes, the UP needs jobs too.

I haven't read anything good/interesting in the news lately though...

Oh, that is interesting. I'm going to have to look into that. Sounds like an interesting topic for current events in one of my classes.
