things that should be

Occasionally, almost by accident, the media lets slip a line or two that actually confirm the weatherbeaten suspicion that not all is wrong in the world. Here are two hints I saw today.

1. The US Congress has decided that people who skarf down copious amounts of fast food and, amazingly, suffer the consequences (all lard related maladies) cannot sue the company.
There is actually something in this neurotic, litigious country that you can't be sued for!!!
God bless overweight America.

2. An astrologer has predicted his own death.
That is the only type of event astrologers and other purveyors of the inane should be allowed to predict.

These are things that should be.
The Exorcist has spoken.
