Here is the address. Here is the door. Here is your objective.

A former Planned Parenthood director recently committed suicide as police investigated him in a child pornography case.

The First 100 Day Report Card of Speaker of The House Kevin McCarthy, always room for improvement.


“So far, McCarthy has logged surprise successes in the new Congress: The Republican House has passed dozens of bills, many of them bipartisan, including politically potent efforts targeting crime and the COVID-19 pandemic that left President Joe Biden almost no choice but to sign the bills into law,” The Associated Press noted in an analysis published on Saturday.

“McCarthy has opened the Capitol more fully to visitors, relishing the onlookers who stop to snap selfies during his impromptu hallway news conferences. He hosted his first foreign leader, President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan, with a diplomatic flourish, leading a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers standing up to China,” the analysis continued.

Glad we missed this shit last night.

Hundreds of unruly teenagers descended into downtown Chicago late Saturday and essentially rioted, reportedly because they weren’t allowed into Millennium Park, which, according to reports, is only open to those over 21 after 6:00 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Meanwhile, as the teens jumped on cars and smashed their windows, two other teens nearby were shot non-fatally and taken to a hospital for treatment.

Fight club = Genius Award Winner.

A substitute teacher at a Texas middle school encouraged students to fight, going so far as to create rules and post a guard at the door, district officials said. NBC 5 reports that the sub has been fired and police are now investigating the incident at Kimbrough Middle School, which was caught on video by one of the students. “I had to stop it multiple times because I didn’t think it was real,” that student’s mother, Beatriz Martinez, said of the video. “I was like, this must be a prank. This is not real.” Her daughter said some of the kids left class bloody—and that she is now getting death threats for reporting it.
