CALIFORNIA GAYS MUST WAIT TO WED DURING APPEAL
In news that is certainly going to delay Jon Dawson’s upcoming vacation to San Francisco, a federal appeals court has delayed homosexuals’ the right to wed, which was going to start tomorrow.
Of course, gays can still get married in Iowa, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C.
My take: In all seriousness — and this is something I’ve said in this forum before — I have no problem whatsoever with the gays getting married. Good for them — let them be as miserable as married straight folks.
EAT AT BURGER KING IN SILER CITY? BETTER GET A SHOT
In some pretty scary news from WRAL.com, health officials are encouraging folks who ate at a Burger King in Siler City on Aug. 2 or 3 to go get a Hepatitis A vaccination after an employee at the restaurant tested positive with the virus.
My take: As mentioned above, pretty scary — and if you were in Siler City and ate at that BK on that Monday and Tuesday, go get your vaccination.
On a sidenote … I think if we knew everything that is done in prep areas at fast food restaurants, we’d probably NEVER eat at another one. I worked at McDonald’s in the mid-1980s and I know some of the stupid stuff we did. And of course you know kids are MUCH more stupid than we were then … right?
HARPER SIGNS WITH NATIONALS
Overall No. 1 pick Bryce Harper signed a five-year, $9.9 million contract with the Washington Nationals last night.
My take: That’s going to be a hell of a team in a few years, especially if the Nats aren’t afraid to spend some money.
