U.S. Tourism Update

A follow-up to a previous post.

On April 23 another Grand Canyon visitor, this time an elderly woman, hurtled to her death about 200 feet below the rim.  This is the fifth Grand Canyon death so far this year.  Not all have happened in the official national park.

How long until someone wants to ruin the view by putting elaborate, high fencing all along the rim in an attempt to prevent stupid people from being stupid?

 

More family hijinx at Walmart

I don’t know why this kind of behavior happens so often at Walmart (a.k.a. Satan’s Playground) – it just does.  This time we’re in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  Headline says it all, linked to the article for the juicy bits (Hey! Put down that muffin mix!)

Mother let dog run loose in Wisconsin Walmart and performed a series of karate moves while son stripped naked, police say

Eau Claire Walmart, where they put the “sin” in Wisconsin!

 

Shocking!: This didn’t happen in Florida

The headline says enough, but the added details in the article are worth a read:

A woman with a history of dog sex has been indicted for bank robbery

 

New U.S. tourism trend

The latest hot trend in U.S. tourism is falling over the edge of the Grand Canyon and plummeting to your death.  Recently, there have been three such airborne deaths at the canyon in the span of just over a week.

The “things happen in threes” rule suggest that the trend may be over, but we are dealing with humans in the age of smart phones, so this could go on for a while.

 

Typical Floridian

Another classic Florida headline:

Florida man gets out of jail, immediately steals from car in prison parking lot: cops

The article in the New York Post is a head-shaker, the photo just lovely.

Ask for it by name!

Another case of the headline telling you just about all you need to know, but I am including a link to the article – it might help you if you get the urge to go shopping:

‘So bizarre’: People are getting high off ‘Catnip Cocktail’ and going wild, New Jersey police say

Why am I not surprised that this is a thing in New Jersey?  The only way this could be less weird is if it was in Florida.
