NaturalBlog News Roundup

Let's take a walk through the headlines, you and I.

Most of them drive hatchbacks. I heard about a new trend in California (where else?) of getting environmentally conscious singles together for speed dating. I imagine the ads read something like "SWM, 36, seeks SF to share bike rides, granola, patchoulie. Must have Nader sticker on your Prius." Well, you know what they say about a guy with a big carbon footprint.

Oh crap. A woman in Florida is facing charges after she assaulted her boyfriend because she found him smoking cocaine. Her weapon of choice was a toilet seat. Not bad, but still not as good as a previous toilet seat story (Item No. 3).

Oh, Michigan. Who is stealing manholes in Flint, Mich.? The city reports that nearly 400 manhole covers and grates have been stolen. This is as good a time as any to tell you that "manhole" is one of my least favorite words. The only way to make it worse is to couple it with "exploding."
