A meteorologist on WABC-TV, Heidi Jones, is facing charges of filing a false report in New York. She claimed she was acosted twice by the same man while jogging in Central Park. If that was me, I would get her a job with the gossip papers. Seems she's good at making up stories.
The Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas was robbed of at least $1.5 million on Tuesday. The robber entered the casino wearing a helmet and jump suit and proceeded to pull a gun at a craps table. He escaped with the chips by fleeing on a motorcycle. Where was security? When I just turned 21 they would barely let me in, but a man wearing a motorcycle helmet gets by? If that was me, I would take a hard look at those security gaurds.

Researchers at McClean Hospital in Boston and the University of Utah have been able to detect high functioning autism with a 94% success rate through the use of MRI brain scans. It is hoped the detection improvement will lead to one day finding a cure or treatment. If that was me, I would check out ways to help at Autism
A company, appropriately called Forever Lazy, is marketing a product it hopes will compete with the Snuggie Fleece Blanket, Pink. The adult size, footless, onesie comes complete with hood and is the product of two wisconsin men who live in one of their parents basement. They have sold 10,000 so far compared to the 20 million Snuggies. If that was me, I would think they could sell that many in Wisconsin alone.
An online retailer, Decormyeyes.com, used a rather unusual strategy to drive sales. Customers with complaints were insulted as a way of driving them to post their complaints on the internet. Seems every time the company's site was mentioned, good or bad, it drove up it's ranking on Google. This in turn sent more customers their way. When Google found out about the company's policies it quickly changed the formula for ranking to prevent this from happening in the future. If that was me, and I was Google, I would just completely remove this company completely.
A town built by Disney, Celebration, Florida, as a walkable,family-friendly town has been hit by it's second death in less than a week. The owner of a failed security business, who was facing the foreclosure of his home, killed himself after a standoff with police. This just days after the town's first ever homocide. The town was built in 1996 and has 11,000 residents who are considered to be well-off financially. If that was me, I would fire that "Mickey Mouse" police department.
