A priest in Bay Village says someone called police to report a homeless person. Turns out, it was actually a statue of Jesus.

Within 20 minutes of the sculpture being installed at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, police were called, according to Alex Martin, the pastor at St. Barnabas.

A cynical person might think that they installed the sculpture with full expectation that someone would do exactly what that law-abiding citizen did, thereby getting the church's name and the associated appeal for donations into the news.

Vermont First State Requiring Secondary Schools To Give Out Free Condoms

Vermont will become the first state in the nation to make free condoms available in public middle and high schools next year after Gov. Scott signed a bill last week that expands access to contraceptives across the state.

Some of the country's largest school districts have free condoms available, but no other state requires its secondary schools to have them according to the National Coalition of STD Directors.

Barre Republican Representative Topper McFaun introduced the bill, and says if teenagers have more access to contraceptives and health education; it might lead to a reduction in the number of abortions that are performed.

Vermont's abortion rate for teens ages 15-19 is about seven per 1,000, slightly lower than the national average.

Kindergarten teacher Helen Hulick, who was a witness to a burglary, was given a five-day sentence and sent to jail because she wore pants to her courtroom testimony in Los Angeles, 1938.

I think there is reasonable suspicion she wasn't wearing a bra either.

Quite the rebel.

In 1787, the slave states were not the small states.
The electoral college protected small free states (like New Hampshire) from being ruled by slaveholders from big states (like Virginia).

Total horseshit promoted by people who want the president chosen by political bosses in just three counties.

Sometimes people play into stereotypes on purpose.

KFC selling its fried chicken-scented firelogs at Walmart
Market Watch
KFC has brought back its fried chicken-scented 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog for a third year, and this time it’s being sold exclusive at Walmart Inc.

Available at select stores and on the Walmart WMT, -1.17% e-commerce site, the item is priced at $15.88 and will be available while supplies last.

The item will also be available in Canada for the first time in the coming weeks.

The 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog is made in partnership with Enviro-Log, an environmentally-conscious consumer products and recycling company based in Georgia.

The item has sold out over the past two years, with demand increasing, according to a statement from Ross McRoy, founder of Enviro-Log.

KFC is part of the Yum Brands Inc. YUM, -2.05% portfolio, which also includes Taco Bell and Pizza Hut.

Yum Brands stock has slipped 0.7% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index SPX, -1.85% has gained 6.3% for the period.
That is the whole article not an excerpt.

Seems to be doing the bottom line no harm. :cowbell:

US, Saudi Arabia and Uganda join forces to declare women have no intrinsic right to abortion

Ten of world’s 20 worst countries for women sign declaration organised by Trump administration

The Trump administration has joined 32 illiberal or authoritarian countries in declaring that women have no intrinsic right to abortion.

The Geneva Consensus Declaration, which received no support from America’s liberal allies, calls on states to protect the health and “inalienable rights” of women, but appears largely aimed at curbing global abortion rights and promoting heterosexual family units.

It was co-sponsored by Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, Uganda and the US, and was also signed by a host of autocratic countries including Saudi Arabia, Belarus and the United Arab Emirates.

“In no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning,” states the declaration, which was signed during a virtual gathering of countries in Washington DC on Thursday.

It adds: “There is no international right to abortion, nor any international obligation on the part of states to finance or facilitate abortion.”
