THE BATTLE RAGES ON!

Well, the Clinton-Obama battle continues. It appears that this one will go down to the convention. At the point of this writing neither seems as if they are throwing in the towel. Obama took North Carolina and Clinton got Indiana. Personally I think this is about time. It might be nice to have a convention for a change that isn’t a foregone conclusion. Let’s have a little excitement, mystery. I’m tired of the same old same old year after year. This might be one convention I’ll watch instead of looking for a tired old rerun on cable.

100 STUDENTS IN DRUG BUST

 SCHOOL TEACHER FIRED FOR WIZARDRY

A substitute teacher, Jim Piculas, in Florida was performing a magic trick for students. He made a toothpick disappear and reappear. OHHH, this is awful. I’m sure he corrupted these kids. He was called into the Head Supervisor of Substitute Teachers and told they had a big problem, “Wizardry.” He was then let go. Maybe Hogwart’s is looking for help. That’s what happens when you do it in front of muggles.
