Page8 POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 13, 2015 Ray Barron's 11 O'CLOCK NEWS Wow! The Kansas Senate has passed a bill that would see elementary and high school teachers arrested if they assign subject matter deemed "harmful" to children. If the Republican-sponsored bill becomes law, it would ban books, artworks, and other mate- rials that depict "nudity, sexual contact, or sexual excitement" from schools. Teachers found guilty of assigning such materials could face up to six months- in jail: Good idea? Officials in New York City are using a clip from the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie Road House to urge police officers to avoid unnecessary confrontations as part of a mandatory, $35 million retraining program. "I want you to be nice," Swayze's character says in the clip, which shows him training a group of bar bouncers, "until it's time not to be nice." Self-determination, after Massachusetts police reported a spate of dogs using large snow banks to escape yards and go explor- ing. "If you've got a dog that's inquisitive," said a police spokesman, "it's going to look for something." According to the brilliant Kyle Waters of Swampscott, "A dog is smarter than some people. It wags its tail and not its tongue." We wonder what Kyle gave to his ageless mother Robin on her birthday. The attractive and astute Kerry Gordinas of Nahant says, "The noblest of all animals is the dog, and the noblest of all dogs is the hotdog. It feeds the hand that bites it." And the handsome brainy Michael Vozoyak, the future husband of Kerry Gordinas says, "A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself." Believe it or not! An Italian neurosurgeon Claimed he would be able to transplant a living human head onto a donor body within two years. "If society doesn't want it, I won't do it," Dr. Sergio Canavero said. "Before going to the moon, you want to make sure people will follow you." Huh? Artistic license, after the artist who painted Bill Clinton's official presidential portrait revealed that he included "a shadow" of a blue dress as "a bit of a metaphor" on the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Citrulo! Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Illinois) was found to have spent $1,200 of public money on a private plane ticket to see a Chicago Bears game, just one month after he repaid taxpayers for using congressional funds to redecorate his Capitol Hill office in the style of Downton Abbey. Weirdo! Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush asked donors to-contribute no more than $1 million to his campaign this quar- ter. Bush needs "substantial funds," said a fundraiser but doesn't "want the focus to be on money." Getting stoned, after a DEA agent told Utah lawmakers that legalizing the cultivation of marijuana in the state could lehd wild rabbits to get high on it and lobe their "natural in- stincts." Guess getting stoned on marijuana could make the rabbits to do the bunny hop. What a brugliontI Disgraced former CIA director General David Petraeus pleaded guilty to handing over highly classified information to former mistress Paula Broadwell, as part of a deal with the govern- ment that could allow him to avoid jail time. The four-star general resigned from the CIA in 2012 after it emerged that he was having an extramarital affair with Broadwell, a former Army Reservist who wrote a glowing biography of the general. Petraeus initially denied supplying information to Broadwell, but prosecutors accused the general of per- sonally delivering a pile of black books con- taining classified information -- including government code words, the identities of co- vert officers, and details of his discussions with President Obama -- to his mistress's home. Petraeus will face two years' proba- tion and a $40,000 fine if his plea deal is approved by a judge. Justice is blind, so they say, but seldom is it too blind to distinguish between the defendant who has a roll of bills and the one who is dead broke. As the great attorney Diane Modica will say, "Life started from a cell, and, if justice is O O O done. a lot of ,,, , it is going to end there." Good news for South Koreans regarding adultery. South Korea's Constitutional Court has struck down the Country's ban on adul- tery. More than 35,000 people have served up to two years in prison for the offense since 1985, when the government began record: ing convictions. The justices said the law was unfairly applied and was often used to blackmail married women who cheated. "It should be left to the free will and love of people to decide whether to maintain mar- riage," the majority opinion said. Share prices for condom manufacturer Unidus jumped 15 percent the day after the ruling. Weird! Residents in the Dutch town of Purmerend have been advised to take um- brellas out at night for protection after a spate of vicious nocturnal attacks by an owl. The bird has dive-bombed dozens of people in the past month, with one victim needing stitches for head wounds. Authorities said the Euro- pean eagle owl might be acting aggressively because its hormone levels soared with the start of breeding season, adding that they were now trying to capture the bird. Mean- while, officials said "we are advising people to stay away from the owl." The eyes have it! A Ukrainian man who be- lieves he has the world's longest eyelashes says he achieved the extraordinary length by eating a mysterious super food. Valery Smagliy, 58, refuses to identify the food be- cause he thinks he can get rich by selling it to women desperate for longer lashes. "Women stop me in the street and ask me what the secret is," he said. Smagliy likes the attention, but is now planning to trim his 1.2-inch eyelashes. "It's difficult to see properly," he said, "with huge gray eyelashes in front of my eyes." Some Iocalites with great eyelashes. Diane Modicae Barbara D'Amico, Linda Peterson, Christina Quinlan, Rosemarie Sansone, Marjorie Clapprood, Lisa Cappuccio, Rosalie Cunio, Frances Fitzgerald, Pam Donna- ruma, Marjorie Cahn, Eva Barisano, Robin Waters, Karen Gordinas, and men such as Tom Analetto, Joe AntoneUi, Kyle Waters, Phil Boncore, Bill Franzese and Paul LaCamera. A record 1,826 billionaires made this year's Forbes richest list, with an aggregate net worth of $7.05 trillion. The list includes 290 newcomers, 71 of whom are from China. Yes, we are good friends of two local billionaires. We thought for sure Steven Sebestyen would be on the list. Hey, you hate-lovers! The fury that fuels road rage, heated family arguments, or work- related disputes can do more than take a toll on people's quality of life. New Research sug- gests that such bouts ofextreme anger may also increase the risk of having a heart attack. So try to stay calm! Some interesting useless information. Your eyes remain the same in 'size from the day you are born to the day you die. Your nose and ears, however, never stop growing. A cat has 32 muscles in each ear. The chance of surviving a plane crash is better in seats found in the back of a plane where you have the best protection during takeoff and land- ings. This is when the risk of an accident is at its greatest. Time to hear from the great stately musi- cologist, Albert Natale. When Frank Sinatra was born, he weighed thirteen and a half pounds. In the early 1930s, Ronald Reagan was a play-by-play announcer for the Chi- cago White Sox. Nancy Sinatra co-starred and sang with Elvis Presley in the 1968 film Speedway. Tony Orlando and Dawn began in "doo-wop" with Four Gents and the Milos before being hired as demo singers. It was Cand/da that put Tony on top in 1970 followed by three big hits in subsequent years. One more time! Jimmy Durante's famous sign- off "Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are!" referred to his first wife. Jennie Olson.
