Not Ready for Primetime News

Migrant workers in south China are wearing adult diapers on packed trains heading home for the Lunar New Year holiday because they have no access to a toilet.

An Oregon man hurled both of his prosthetic legs at a state trooper, striking him with one, after his son was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

A Frenchman was fined 214,000 euros ($262,700) for attacking a urinal artwork, it was the second time he has attacked it since 1993. Following is an actual photo of the artwork, no kidding.

During the same two-year period that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power spent $1 million to convince the public that its tap water is safe and tasty, it also spent $31,160 for Sparkletts bottled water for its own employees.

I wonder what this Frenchman has against urinal art. To attack it twice, he must be pretty pissed off.

I had see photos of the art before, in addition to the one that I posted. As urinals goes, and we have all spent considerable time staring at them, it ain't all that pretty. It looks like a model of a heart, only in porcelain.

Where was that French gusto when the Germans rolled into Paris???

I'm thinking that train ride in South China is a long, stinky one.
