We've all heard about postal workers having issues with dogs before, but cats? Never happen? It has in England, where mail is no longer being delivered to a woman because of her cat. She claims that the cat is too lazy to attack the postal workers. I must say I believe the woman as I have never met a cat that I would consider scary or harmful. I think these postal workers are wimpy! Unless you're 7 inches tall and have a tail, you're not going to get chased by a car. Where do you think they phrase Scaredy Cat comes from?
Stripping as Protest

A time tested way to get your voice heard (or at least have people pay attention to you) is by stripping. These ladies have 9 months of wages that have not been paid to them by their company, so in protest they created a calendar posing provocatively in various airplane settings. I wonder why they waited so long, I would not go 1 month without pay. Maybe they should sell these calendars and make a living that way. Kevin wants to know where he get one of these.
Run to Freedom?
I love these types of stories, where a person gets what they deserve by accident. This guy is running from the police because of a traffic violation and ends up jumping into a prison. It was a women's prison but he had the right idea. Now not only is he going to prison, but he is facing trespassing charges as well. Classic!
Better Late than Never
Everyone has done it. Turning in a library book late or forgetting about it all together and adding it to your collection of books you'll never read. Should it be a federal offense? I don't think so, but a Colorado judge on the other hand disgrees with me, a decision that cost him his position on the bench.
The judge issued an arrest warrant for a 19 year-old male because he had turned in a library book late. The teen was held in custody for over 8 hours because Colorado police saw he had an outstanding warrant outstanding after a routine traffic stop. Moral of the story? When in Colorado, turn in your books on time!!
That does it for the odd news of the week. Please see below for some pictures of my kitties (that will be going to wonderful homes in 1 month, hopefully). See, cats are too cute and lazy to attack.
What are you doing this weekend?
