In the market for a new home? Don’t miss the Open House guide in the paper Saturday and Sunday.
When I posted this funny headline yesterday, I got an email from reader John Markell claiming that his favorite crazy headline beats them all. (Click on the link; it’s not the one below).

The linked headline is from The Register, a UK technology site that specializes in the art of the prurient headline.
I’m pretty amused by the linked headline.
Remember the TV show ‘Newhart’, where Bob Newhart played the innkeeper/self-help book author?
I can’t remember where I saw it, but my favorite classified ad went something like this:
LOST. Two black labs. Answer to the name Darrell. Call XXX-XXXX and ask for Larry.
We’ll have a charmer of a classified ad up tomorrow.
Speaking of headlines, how do you all feel about TSA’s announcement today that starting April 25th you can again take a small knife aboard an airplane, providing its no longer than 2.5 inches long and no wider than 1/2 an inch. That is almost as shocking to me as finding out on September 12th 2001 that you could take such a thing aboard an airliner back then. My question on that day was what the hell were the metal detectors and pocket emptying for anyway? I mean the obvious answer I guess is guns, but why would anyone be allowed to take a potentially deadly weapon on board with them, then or now?
Meanwhile, your 80 year old mother gets strip searched and your three year old gets patted down and frisked. WTF?
People downtown are wanting to form an Anti-Noise committee, if I understood the email I received…..Isn’t a bit like moving to Florida and then complaining about the heat?…Some fine upstanding people I know down their but someone needs a reality check, just’a say’n
