• The Powerball Lottery drawing was held Saturday night to determine the jackpot prize winner of the fifth largest lottery award in history. The winning ticket for the seven hundred million dollar jackpot was sold in the state of California. Legislation is being written up to grab as much as possible.

• KFC announced plans to hire twenty thousand new employees Friday. The KFC in Hollywood just removed from its lobby a six-foot mannequin of a white-suited Colonel Sanders. How many Confederate statues have to come down until someone points out that the South seceded over a tariff.
• Afghanistan's new Defense Minister clamped down hard on his own troops Monday and ordered the Taliban fighters to stop having so much fun and stop taking selfies. I like the video one of them posted during a regimental singalong. They are singing, Tonight, We're Going to Party Like It's 1399.
