Remember that image we posted yesterday from TC Central's school paper "Black and Gold?" It was from their satire page and brought out a ton of complaining from parents because they thought the "Grinding: A Guide for future Reference" story was crossing the line. The TC Ticker dug into this and I personally want to give Central's principal and TCAP's superintendent major props for having their student's back! They did admit that it crossed the line but the cool thing is the two are not flipping out. The principal at my school use to flip out when we would post anything like this in our paper.

Speaking of school, here's a quiz: Define a Filibuster? Think you got it right? Instead of defining I'll give you an example. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky stalled the Senate yesterday by talking for 13 hours! He spoke about the governement using lethal drones and this forced the Senate to delay the confirmation of John Brennan to lead the CIA. Don't ya love the system?
There's a very strong rumor that Jay Leno is about to retire and Jimmy Fallon from NBC's Late Night will step up to replace him on the tonight show. IF Jay actually steps aside there's a rumor that Howard Stern could be the guy to replace Jimmy Fallon. The only part I do not like about this is that the Late Night spot usually goes to a younger talent, it would be nice to see a new face but I wouldn't be totally heart broken if Stern got it.
It's definitely one of the hazards of stealing someone else's identity. Brianna Priddy's wallet was stolen in February. Two weeks later, the woman now accused of nabbing it tried to use Priddy's driver license to prove she was over 21. Only problem? The waitress handling the alleged thief's drinks order at a Lakewood, Colorado, Applebee's was Brianna Priddy. Priddy recognized her own license immediately, so she called the cops and waited for them to show up — all while serving the woman and her cohorts. "'Dumb criminal' — that's the first [phrase] that comes to mind," said a police spokesperson. Especially since police say the suspect is 26 and didn't need a fake ID to order a margarita. More here.
Hmmm, we wonder what this is. Russell Crowe caught it on camera..
