Best of Today's News

Here are two stories from today's news that put a smile on my face, so I'd thought I'd share......

Fawlty Towers lives again! See this story from the BBC about the reopening of the hotel that inspired John Cleese to create the TV show.

And then there's this news about Willie Nelson and his fellow roadies....
It doesn't say anything about DUI or erratic driving, just that the bus was stopped for "a commercial vehicle inspection." The AP quotes a news release that says ""When the door was opened and the trooper began to speak to the driver, he smelled the strong odor of marijuana . . . A search of the bus produced 11/2 pounds of marijuana and 0.2 pounds of narcotic mushrooms, according to state police."

Was this really necessary? Was it surprising? Is this news??

Whatever, they were issued misdemeanor citations and released.
