Last week Americans viewed 12 times as many stories about Miley Cyrus as they did about Syria... which explains why they were against attacking Syria but all for pre-emptory strikes on Miley.

A brewer has apparently come out with a beer that you can spread on toast. Just when you didn't think there was a good reason to get up and have breakfast.

There's talk that the Vatican is considering a new rule that would allow Catholic priests to get married one day. The old line is, "Well, they already know about heaven... "

Syrian President Assad says he is turning over his chemical weapons because Russia asked him to, "not because of the U.S. threatening to bomb him." He also said his doctor just told him he's allergic to gluten and being bombed.

The Seattle crowd at the Seahawks/49ers game Sunday night set the Guinness Book of World Records mark for the loudest crowd ever at a sporting event. We reached 136.6 decibels, which is equivalent to the sound of Sugar Bear running over Mama June's foot with a tractor.

The owner of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, is asking people to keep guns out of his stores, even if the local laws allow it. This from a guy who doesn't consider it robbery to charge $5 for a cup of coffee.
