Praise cheesus: Here's one of the best stories ever

Published by USA Today, it was originally reported by Florida Today in Brevard -- and without even a hint of snark.


  1. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
    and do not return there but water the earth,
    making it bring forth and sprout,
    giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
    so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
    but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
    Isaiah 55: 11

  2. So sayeth, Rudd Davis...

  3. There's another head shaker today on the USA Today site, a promo for a Newser story on people eating guinea pigs.


  4. Newser represents cheap content for the 24/7 news engine. Pretty awful studf, but its Kramer's buddy, Michael Wolff's operation. Talk about a conflict of interest. Kramer sits on Newser's board. We pay Wolff to write a column. Does anyone see something wrong here?

  5. I don't think that's widely known, 951pm. It does smell.

  6. VERY interesting 9:51. So many conflicts there I don't know where to begin. Is it possible Wolf kicks back to Kramer, too? Definitely worth a closer look Jim.

  7. And this, my friends, is what your once proud newspaper has become. Welcome to the new world of journalism...
