Good Morning, News!

GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! We know you like us girls, so you better get steril, 'cause we're the home chicks that are rockin' your world. LET'S GO TO PRESS.

The NCAA fines Penn State 60 million smackers and a four-year post-season ban for their role in the Jerry Sandusky abuse case. Far enough or NOT far enough?

Iraqi insurgents declare a new offensive, launching 37 various attacks, killing nearly 100, and wounding 300. Point made.

Syria swears up and down they would NEVER use their chemical munitions on the rebels. Because they're sweet like that.

James Holmes, the man suspected of shooting up that Colorado movie theater, bought most of his ammunition legally and online. Thanks again, internet!

Movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes remains mum; made an appearance in court today.

A pickup truck carrying nearly two dozen people crashes, killing 13, guess where, in Texas.

Here's an interesting new scam! Thousands of Australians received a text saying to pay up $5000 in two days or be murdered.

Seattle people will frown big-time over this one: Beloved TV clown J.P. Patches (Chris Wedes) has died at the age of 84. :(

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are caught smooching at a party. BLEEEECHHHHH!!! Gross.

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: Only a couple of clouds today with a high of 72, and warming up to the 80s as the week progresses!

And finally, this guy attended that infamous Colorado screening of The Dark Knight Rises... and returned to watch the rest.

Less than one day after he escaped the chaos and carnage of the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting, lifelong Batman fan Justin Davis was back at the movies with a sense of purpose.

Davis, 16, was accompanied by his brother and a friend to a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” at a different Colorado movie theater.

“I just want to finish it, and for all those men, women and children that didn’t get to finish it, I want to finish it for them,” he said.
