Well, that didn’t take long. The autotune geniuses the Gregory Brothers have teamed with Blondie to songify last night’s debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and the results are 1,000X more watchable than the actual debate. Discuss
Despite threats of lawsuits and an outcry from some medical professionals and abortion advocates, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is continuing to fight for new fetal burial laws.
The new proposed rules state that all fetal remains—including in cases of miscarriage and abortion—must be either properly buried or cremated.
Abbot said that the rules are going into effect because he doesn’t believe that the human remains should be “treated like medical waste and disposed of in landfills.” He told reporters, “It is imperative to establish higher standards that reflect our respect for the sanctity of life.”
The laws, which are now being reviewed under a public comment period, will likely spark a legal battle over who would pay for burials and whether or not such rules should even be on the books. Discuss
This is the kind of story your day needs. Young Jourdan Duncan’s day starts early. Back in May, his car broke down, and since then, he’s been walking to work—two hours each way! Recently, a local police officer, Corporal Kirk Keffer, noticed Duncan, and offered him a ride. Duncan explained to the officer, “I don’t want to feel like I’m a burden to people so I take the initiative to handle myself and where I need to go from point A to point B.”
Keffer explained to the local Fox 2 news station, "There’s not a lot of 18 year olds out there that have this dedication we just wanted to make sure he knows how much I appreciated what he’s doing.” Keffer told the local Police Officers Association about Duncan, and they decided to do something: They purchased him a brand new mountain bike, that has cut his commute time in half. As he explained to Fox 2, “This bike is my best friend. I love this bike.”
Duncan told Keffer that he has big plans for his own career: He wants to go into law enforcement. Discuss
