SLABBED Daily – June 11

It’s taken this long to come up with “news lite” but that’s all I’ve wanted to read and there’s precious little of it.

Nonetheless, I’m taking a pass on SarahPalin’s toenails.

Likewise on the story that Cher’s daughter is soon to become her son.

Same goes for the NCAA sanctions on Alabama – well, maybe not –  but you’ll have to figure out just how much suffering goes into having wins from the past turned to losses no one will remember.  Not exactly the same as losing scholarships or the opportunity to play in post season games.

The idea of people actively discussing a new type of cloud didn’t really interest me – I but if it floats your boat, give it a try.

The only really pleasant story is this one about Obama writing an excuse for 10-year-old  who stayed out of school to hear the President speak.

“Do you need me to write a note?” Obama asked. The crowd laughed, but the president was serious.

On a piece of paper, he wrote: “To Kennedy’s teacher: Please excuse Kennedy’s absence. She’s with me. Barack Obama.” He stepped off the stage to hand-deliver the note _ to Kennedy’s surprise.

Surely, tomorrow will be a better news day – but, if not, TGIF!
