Running from thing to thing to do today, I heard 3 interesting news tidbits.
The first and most exciting one (for me anyway) is that some fine people have done a study on the color dies used in some candies. M&Ms were specifically mentioned. I think we all know of my love affair with the colorful little circles of chocolatey goodness. The blue and red dyes used in candies may combat cancer causing genes! WTF you scream?! Yes, that gives us all free reign to eat our colorful circle candies until we burst! I'm celebrating with a big handful of M&Ms right now!
Secondly, a man from Utah, vacationing in Sedona, Arizona decided to go for a hike in one of their beautiful public parks. For whatever reason, he didn't believe clothing was required. There he was hiking up the trail with his boots on and nothing else, enjoying nature at it's fullest. He even walked up to 2 women who were taking a picture and offered to take one of the 2 of them. Does Utah allow nude hiking and did this guy just assume Arizona did too? Hmmmm.
Thirdly, some Senator in Washington, thinks that "men's" magazines should be banned from the troops in Iraq. We are not talking Men's Health or GQ here. We are talking Playboy, Penthouse, etc... Can we cut these guys some slack and worry about bigger issues in the Senate? Hey, how about figuring out how to get these guys (and gals) home?
What else have I been missing this week by not watching a full hour of news and just catching bits and pieces here and there? At least I haven't heard about shootings, drugs, kidnappings etc.. Now that I think about it, these stories kept me amused all day. Everyday news doesn't usually do that for me. I think I will go have some more cancer fighting M&Ms and ponder this some more.
