- Any of the above depress you? Marijuana and gay marriage are legal in Washington, today! So, if you're in the neighborhood, go and get some of whichever you prefer.
- Are you enjoying your TSA experience? A new study reports that the United States actually faces little risk of another terrorist attack.
