A news trilogy garnered by your humble hostess while she was unsuccessfully trying to look away from Chris Christie's staggering fall from the George Washington Bridge. Excerpts from various sources.
1. "An Oklahoma man is being held on suspicion of murdering his stepfather by giving him an 'atomic wedgie,' officials said.
Police said Brad Lee Davis got into a drunken family fight with his stepfather in which he grabbed the man’s underwear, pulled it over his head, and suffocated him with the waistband."
2. "An Oklahoma high school suspended a 15-year-old student after accusing her of casting a magic spell that caused a teacher to become sick, lawyers for the student said on Friday.
According to the lawsuit, Brandi Blackbear had read a library book about Wicca beliefs and, under aggressive interrogation by (assistant principal Charlie) Bushyhead, said she might be a Wiccan."
3. "Rep. Leslie Combs accidentally fired her handgun while unloading it in her office in the Capitol Annex on Tuesday.
'I'm a gun owner. It happens,' she said Wednesday, adding that she was following safety precautions as she unloaded her Ruger 380 semi-automatic handgun."
Um ... help.
