Good Morning, News!

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, May 8, 2013 at 9:29 AM

GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! Sometimes I never leave, but sometimes I would. Sometimes I stay too long, sometimes I would. LET'S GO TO PRESS.

Three men are being charged in the Amanda Berry kidnapping case, and as you can imagine, the details of life inside that boarded up house are not pretty.

Meanwhile, Cleveland police are in the soup for failing to fully investigate suspicious behavior that could've led to the release of the three kidnapping victims years ago.

Delaware is the 11th state to approve same-sex marriage—hoorah! (C'mon Oregon, let's at least try to be in the teens!)

The Obama administration is leaning toward an overhaul of surveillance laws, that may allow Feds to snoop on internet communications.

The Defense Department estimates that close to 26,000 soldiers have been the victim of "unwanted sexual contact." 26,000! And that's a 30 percent jump from three years ago!

Meanwhile 17 Air Force officers have been stripped of their ability to launch nukes—because, ummm... they're not so good at their jobs. GULP.

Former South Carolina governor (and Republican) Mark Sanford beats (Stephen's sister) Elizabeth Colbert Busch in a special house election. This should make her brother (fake) happy and (actually) sad.

31 people have been detained in Brussels for their roles in a recent $50 million diamond heist—or as I like to call them, "Ocean's 31."

"I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him 'Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose," says freaky Dennis Rodman to his good buddy Kim Jong Un on Twitter. POOR KENNETH BAE!

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: More gorgeous weather with highs popping back up to 80 by tomorrow—but then there's Sunday.

And finally, what is this dog anyway?? A CAT?? Just give the guy one goddamn kiss, for chrissakes!!
