Biggest Task in America

ECONOMIC RECOVERY NEWS: Economists say that when the dollar is weak, meaning it’s losing value compared to other currencies, one benefit is that more American products can be sold overseas. Now, the biggest task for American manufacturers is to find a way to sell more products in America. EDUCATION NEWS: The latest trend in modern education is tutoring 2 and 3-year-olds for preschool. Next will come surrogate potty training followed by substitute breast feeding. END OF THE WORLD NEWS: According to Harvard University scientists, a dying star lurking dangerously close to Earth is on the brink of exploding into a…

Loveland Lights in the Sky

Q: On the evening of March 22, 2009, at approximately 19:45 hours, I was traveling southbound on I-25 approximately five miles north of the Loveland, CO area when I noticed a set of lights in the sky that were approximately 250’ above the ground.The craft was perfectly stationary as it “hovered” in the air, neither tilting nor moving in any specific direction. As I traveled closer I was able to see that its dimmed lights were part of an aircraft/mechanical object. Did I just have a close encounter? A: A hovering craft spotted over a place called Loveland (the land…

Calendars . . . FREE . . . and worth it!

If you are reading this, then you know, as I do, that the world did not end on December 21, 2012. Conspiracy theorists, New Age nincompoops and a cabal of defrocked priests with Internet divinity degrees have been saying for the last few years that life, as we know it, would cease to be on that auspicious date. The source of their purported knowledge was a calendar composed some 5,000 years ago and, according to scholars, distributed in hardware stores throughout the Mayan world, for free. I’m not sure if the prediction was based on the calendar itself or something…

Mysterious Flash of Light Occurred on Live Television

Q: A mysterious flash of light occurred on live television in Phoenix, Arizona during a morning newscast on Thursday, March 8. The light flash appeared during a traffic update on local Fox affiliate Fox 10. Anchor Andrea Robinson delivered the traffic report in front of a live video feed from a camera showing Phoenix’s 1-17 freeway and the northwest valley. The bright flash happened quickly, but the station certainly noticed. Utility companies denied any power anomaly. Any idea what caused the flash? A: Since it was on FOX, the president will most likely be blamed.   Q: I read an…

Pennies From Heaven

Q: I read about a man who claims he saw pennies fall from the sky. His story is he was walking around, no buildings nearby, and first heard metallic sounds from the ground and then discovered pennies. Then he was pelted by even more pennies coming from seemingly nowhere. He mentioned that the pennies were warm. I know there is an old song called “Pennies From Heaven,” but this just sounds zany. Is there any documented case of money falling from the skies? A: I suppose. I think if I found warm pennies that fell from the sky, I would…

New Disease Causes Pigs to Run Rampant in UK

Q: I was reading predictions by alleged psychics when I came across this one: A new disease causes pigs to run rampant in the UK, not unlike mad cow, but more violent. At first I laughed, but then realized that if angry cattle could upset the United States, what would rampant pigs do to the United Kingdom? It isn’t enough we must worry about terrorists, now we have to be on the lookout for deranged swine. Some attribute this to our eating habits, but it has nothing to do with haggis, neeps and tatties. A: I think mad cows were…

Has the Age of Chaos Begun?

Q: I have been reading about the odd coincidence of hurricanes Katrina and Rita striking so soon near the same place. Then came the Guatemalan mudslide and the earthquake in Pakistan, all on the heels of the Bam earthquake and the tsunami in Southeast Asia. While skeptics see these natural disasters as unrelated, others say they are just the beginning of a chain of events leading to the world’s end. Has the Age of Chaos begun? A: I’m not quite sure what the Age of Chaos is supposed to mean. I’m sitting on land that was once ocean. This isn’t…
