Newsworthy Events From Around The Country Not Making Headlines

While you were sleeping last night and each news network was discussing whom will be running the country in two months, you may have missed some of the other headlines being buried on a back page byline, or as a fast 30 second filler story leading into an episode of "Hawaii 5-0".

Where’s The Beef? [VIDEO]

This may not be big news in New Hampshire, Minnesota, or Alaska, but here in Texas, where meat rules, the price of hamburgers may be rising to the point where you'll need to charge admission to your next BBQ.

Soon to follow is expected to be a worldwide shortage of pork products, as the United Kingdom's National Pig Association (NPA) announced an "unavoidable" shortage in 2013.

What's causing the problem?  The worst U.S. drought in 50 years for starters.  Adding to the conflict is a report that a global failure of maize and soya harvests have contributed to over-the-top pig costs.

Another Weird “Holiday”, Gomer Pyle Day – September 25 [VIDEO]

Well, Gol-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-e-e-e-!

A gas station attendant from Mayberry decides to join the Marines, and his good pal Andy Taylor decides to accompany him to boot camp on his first day of enlistment.

That was from an Andy Griffith Show episode that was actually the "pilot" for Gomer Pyle, U.S. M. C., debuting in May of 1964.

Premiere Comedian Bill Murray Turns 62 [VIDEO]

Bill Murray, one the immortal comedy kingpins who catapulted Saturday Night Live into the longest running television show, blew out 62 candles on September 21.

While he's not aging as well as Richard Gere, he was still in prime form when appearing on one of the late nighter's recently.  Can't rightfully remember which one, but Letterman pops into my mind right now.

Old Chinese Dessert Has Celebration TODAY!

Do you believe in luck over knowledge when it comes to surviving games of chance?  For example, I happen to know someone who proclaims to be a wizard when it comes to picking the ponies.  Have even accompanied him to Louisiana Downs, where I observed some minor magic.

I believe that no matter how intuitive one is, being a Svengali at the track likely results from the marriage between luck and knowledge.

Indy racer Danica Patrick's #7 car has become a well-known symbol for the company Go Daddy. Turns out, nobody could navigate Go Daddy out of yesterday's hack that shut down millions of websites.

Isaac hits Louisiana, Louisiana hits back

If there's one thing we've learned about Hurricane Isaac so far, it's that the storm has a mind of its own. First it was making a beeline for the Florida panhandle. Then it changed its mind and headed straight for New Orleans. Isaac finally made landfall in Louisiana late Tuesday night, then retreated briefly back to the Gulf, as if Louisiana had just sucker-punched it right in the face and forced it to think twice about coming in there. But alas, Isaac has hit our neighbors to the east, and hurricane warnings are out.

What does that mean for East Texas?

5 Year Old Wears Wrong Team Shirt To School, Branded ‘Offensive’ [VIDEO]

I've absolutely had it with stupid, ridiculous, non-nonsensical rules, whereby the people drafting the code should be banished to that island that Tom Hanks was stranded on for four years in the movie "Castaway"!

Further, the lunatics of such gibberish, actually make the guys in the "Dumb and Dumber" flick retain respectability.

Allow me to vent forthright.

Austin Area Walmart Site of Early Morning Shooting

Another miscreant of society who probably doesn't have any responsibility in life because he's at an Austin area Walmart at 4:30 a.m. Sunday poppin' off a few rounds, 18 year old Soloman Onwukaife will undoubtedly unleash terror on society again, once he's let out of jail.

Unless we start giving the perpetrators a sentence befitting the crime, many more morons like Onwukaife wait in the wings to prove that shooting innocent people makes them a tough guy.

Never would have thought twenty years ago, that my television viewing today would feature a weekend marathon of "Murder By The Book", "Murder Mysteries", "Anatomy of a Murder", etc...

Heck, I grew up with "Columbo", "Cannon", and "Barnaby Jones"!
