Everyones still here, a stolen moon rock, and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s death is announced

So here we are; drinking our coffee and tea, and enjoying the morning. The Rapture apparently didn’t get you and me.

Either we’re sinners and didn’t deserve to get scooped up out of our clothes, or it’s not the End of the World. What’s Harold Camping going to do now?

Meanwhile as the world turns: 

A woman offering to sell a moon rock for $1.7 million was detained in a NASA sting, authorities said Friday. It is illegal to sell moon rocks (which I didn’t know). They’re considered national treasures. The gray rocks, which were gifted to each U.S. state and 136 countries by then-President Richard Nixon, can sell for millions of dollars on the black market.

How about those crazy people in Texas? The legislature acts to make state safe for "noodling"

Texas may still have problems like a multi-billion dollar budget deficit and public schools facing major spending cuts, but its legislature has moved to make the Lone Star State safe for "noodling."

Noodling, the time-honored Southern practice of catching catfish by hand, has been illegal in Texas, and noodlers were subject to a fine of up to $500.

However, lawmakers from east Texas, the part of the state most steeped in Southern culture, have long claimed it is wrong to ban what is also called by some "Hillbilly Hand Fishing."



According to a report from the Galactic Empire Times, Obi-Wan Kenobi Is Dead, Vader Says

Obi-Wan Kenobi, the mastermind of some of the most devastating attacks on the Galactic Empire and the most hunted man in the galaxy, was killed in a firefight with Imperial forces near Alderaan, Darth Vader announced on Sunday.

In a late-night appearance in the East Room of the Imperial Palace, Lord Vader declared that “justice has been done” as he disclosed that agents of the Imperial Army and stormtroopers of the 501st Legion had finally cornered Kenobi, one of the leaders of the Jedi rebellion, who had eluded the Empire for nearly two decades.

It’s been fun. Time for me to head on down the road…
