We were working in the kitchen this morning when Mom decided we needed an update on current events. So from the comfort of her couch in the living room she loudly proclaimed “Remember Herman Cain? Well apparently he’s getting nasty letters because he’s requested Secret Service protection.”
“Yup,” I replied, “the TV story said he’s getting death threats.”
“It’s probably from all the women he’s molested,” she said with a serious tone. “I guess there’s a lot of nuts out there right now,” she continued.
“Did you hear about Natalie Wood?” she yelled, continuing with the updates. “Well, she’s still dead but they’re opening up the investigation again for some reason.”
“That’s because the boat captain said he lied thirty years ago,” I said, trying to add an actual fact to the update.
“Well I don’t see the point. She’ll still be dead, and besides, I like Robert Wagner”
…and that’s the news for Friday, November 18.
