Signs of the times

The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time. ~ Abraham Lincoln
• A downtown shop worker in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, tired of Salvation Army bell-ringing, called in a noise complaint to the police.

• Victoria's Secret had to apologize for dressing a model in a Native American-style headdress, leopard-print undies and high heels, for its annual fashion show.
• A New York cop's wife discovered her husband's intention to kidnap women in order to eat them when she read his plans on his computer. He had 100 women earmarked.

• 800 million human beings are now unemployed or underemployed in the world.

• The newest Japanese train will travel at more than 300 miles (483 kilometers) per hour.

• No one was reported shot, stabbed or slashed in New York City on Monday this week. Police officials can not remember that happening in living memory.
I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. ~ Robert McCloskey
