Quote IV

"We all support decriminalization. The notion that people are criminalized because they suffer from the disease of addiction is just fatally flawed. It’s a consequence of both the war on drugs and the stigma assigned to addiction,” Mike Marshall, the executive director of Oregon Recovers

Hopefully the Fabulous Mrs. Mis Hum and I contributed to this heartwarming story when we cut the cord in September. Report: Another Wave of Layoffs Coming to ESPN

It looks like another wave of layoffs is coming to ESPN, maybe to the tune of hundreds of lost jobs.

ESPN has more than 6,000 employees, but as it is losing upwards of $2 billion in annual revenue due to a constant stream of lost subscribers and difficulties arising from the coronavirus, network owner Disney clearly feels something has to give. So, according to The Athletic, ESPN is set to begin layoffs, maybe as soon as Thursday.

Doctor Ask Terminally Ill Kids What Really Matters In Life – Here Are Their Answers

Dr. Alastair McAlpine spends every day caring for children with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses, working for the non-profit organization PaedsPal.

McAlpine recently decided to ask his terminally-ill patients what they enjoyed most in life and then shared their answers on Twitter.

In a tweet, he explained: “For an assignment, I asked some of my terminal pediatric palliative care patients what they had enjoyed in life, and what gave it meaning. Kids can be so wise, y’know.”

All of these children are between the ages of four and nine years old. Even though they are young, they still managed to hit the nail on the head when it comes to what makes life worth living.

Do you own a Yetti mug? Plan on giving one for a present? Heads up. YETI Recalls Nearly a Quarter-Million Travel Mugs, Lids

The 20-ounce mugs with magnetic Stronghold Lids pose an injury or burn hazard. YETI asks users to return faulty lids immediately.

YETI, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has issued a voluntary recall of its Rambler 20-ounce Travel Mug with Stronghold Lid. The Stronghold Lid uses the brand’s MagSlider, which, according to the recall, can “eject” and spill the mugs’ contents.

The recall, issued today by the CPSC, impacts more than 240,000 Rambler Travel Mugs with the Stronghold Lid. Affected mugs and lids retailed during October 2020 and have the date code 34204010 printed on the bottom.

Consumers that have a recalled mug should immediately stop using it and visit YETI’s product recall page to obtain a full refund.

Burning bridges? Just remember the toes you step on today might be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow. And the internet is forever.

"Jimmy from sporting goods, Joseph the cashier, Larry from garden center: You are all perverts."

A Walmart in Texas was down one employee this weekend after she quit — in spectacular fashion.

Shana Ragland shared her resignation on TikTok — and indeed the entire store in Lubbock Texas — when she let colleagues know just how she felt about them over the PA system.

"Attention all Walmart shoppers, associates, and managers," she announced in the self-shot video. "My name is Shana from Cap 2, and I just want to come on here and say Henry is a racist, stinky prick."

The reception was very inexpensive. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A couple in Oklahoma tied the knot at the Dunkin' drive-thru window where they first met in 2015.

Sugar Good met the love of her life, John Thompson, while working the window at a Dunkin' restaurant in Oklahoma City.

Good memorized the time he would visit every morning as well as the details of his order -- a large hot coffee with cream and sugar and a sausage, egg and cheese sandwich.

"I could never forget his smile," Good told CNN. "I always noticed it. He has dimples and when he smiles, his eyes sparkle."

"I always noticed her eyes, no matter where she was at in the store, I could always see her looking back at me," Thompson said. "Still, I just didn't get the hint she liked me, but I did everything I could to find out her name."
