Good Morning Humboldt County!
It’s coffee time. Have a nice steaming hot shot of java and let’s explore what the headlines offer this morning.
Back on line. Quite a few people were without the internet and home phones yesterday as At&t & Suddenlink experienced problems.
Forget counting sheep -- many people prefer listening to lions roaring and monkeys calling to help them nod off, according to a new survey.
It was bound to happen after the world saw how pathetic our Congress is after the contrived debt crisis. Make sure to thank a Tea Bagger today because that group in the House is paving the way for America’s demise.
“The United States lost its top-notch AAA credit rating from Standard & Poor's Friday in a dramatic reversal of fortune for the world's largest economy.
S&P cut the long-term U.S. credit rating by one notch to AA-plus. The credit agency said it was making the move because the deficit reduction plan passed by Congress Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilize the country's debt situation.
The S&P report cited "the gulf between the political parties" evidenced during last week's debt-ceiling debate that resulted in legislation designed to cut over $2.1 trillion over 10 years among its reasons for the first-time lowering, but GOP leaders laid the blame on President Barack Obama, according to reports from NBC News.”
It's International Beer Day, as if anyone needed an excuse to grab a cold one. Bottom's up!
Time to walk on down the road…
