Good Morning, News!

GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! Ballin, Brooklyn dawn. Addicted to Crys, hooked on Don. LET'S GO TO PRESS.

73 people were arrested over the weekend at New York's Zuccotti Park during an Occupy Wall Street six-month anniversary protest. MAN. Those were good times, weren't they?

A man in southwest France opens fire at a Jewish school killing three children and one adult.

Mittens Romney wins handily in Puerto Rico—but Illinois is the real question. If Santorum takes the state, we're talking about a possible brokered convention, which will be OH, SO SWEET.

Flush with cash, Apple will be buying back some of its shares, which of course, I stupidly didn't buy.

Something something something New York Mets, something something something Bernie Madoff.

So while Mike Daisey is currently topping the left's "most loathed" list, this article reminds us that while he flat out lied about some things, China's labor practices really do stink.

The "Don't Re-Nig" anti-Obama bumper sticker flying around the internet is apparently real, and absolutely stupid. (Dear racists: Words have meanings, please try to learn one or two of them.)

Also in "Oh god, this is terrible": Bangladeshi teen prostitutes are using steroids to "enhance" their appearance in order to turn more tricks.

I don't approve of crime, but still—this headline made me sad: "Swimsuit Model Accused of Heading International Drug Ring Captured."

Good work, Oregon! The Bald Eagle is back! (From near extinction that is. And as proof, I had my first ever not-in-a-zoo bald eagle sighting when one flew over my house the other day, and I almost pooped my pants! Okay, fine, whatever, I don't get out much.)

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: RAIN. At least until late Thursday anyway.

And finally, a man drinking a bottle of Absolut Vodka in 15 seconds. Fake? Real? Viral marketing? Still impressive in a brain dead sort of way. You be the judge!
