Today in crazytown: virgin hurdler sacrifice; thirty-ought birthdays

Today I’ve been traveling. I’m now in New York City and about to fall face down with jet lag. So to keep you entertained until somebody dumps a pot of coffee on my face in the morning, here are a couple of news stories that should keep you up all night.

First, some people — I’m too crosseyed to actually figure this out — apparently think American hurdler Lolo Jones is being set up as a virgin sacrifice before the London Olympics. Yeah, I know it’s crazy. Traditionally a synchronized swim team is thrown into a live volcano ahead of the games.

Second, under the heading, “What could possibly go wrong?” Rich informs us that a gun range in Dallas is offering kids’ birthday parties. Rich says: “I have absolutely nothing to add which is pretty much the definition of ‘aghast.'”

Ditto.
