    Sucks Andy. Fingers crossed mate!

I initially thought it was supposed to be an article about how tough it is for some people and how they rely on food stamps to get by, but by the end of the article I was pretty pissed off. By the way Bloomington has got to be the easiest town to be poor in in America, lots of programs,free food kitchens with dine in and carry out, free food pantries etc.
    I don't think that was the reporters intention, but this is what I got out of it. She dropped out of high school, got pregnant at 17, has 4 kids by 4 different fathers, smokes Newports, smokes while changing her kids diapers, lost a job at the hospital for being late and absent too often, currently has high speed internet, has a live-in boyfriend that doesn't work (but clearly eats the food as seen in a pic). Towards the end of the article she mentions running out of food and money and getting $100 from her mom and goes to Walmart and buys among other things..... cigarettes. Then at the end, to top it all off she talks about waking the kids up at midnight when the food stamp card is renewed and going to the gas station and buying junk food for her and her kids. All this info was interspaced with quotes from her saying stuff like " I don't know what I could do differently"
    Sorry, needed to rant.
    Theses are the people I put in jail 90% of the time (I take great pleasure in it). Theses people are lazy, not disabled. There are plenty of people out there that honestly need help. The above is the stereotypical example of someone leeching off the system. The real problem is those four kids are learning that moms way of life is perfectly acceptable. Other than the grossness, I think I hate cigarettes so much because I identify smokers with the above. Obviously that stereotype is ridiculous and I know it (my mother in law is a smoker and a successful woman). It's a completely irrational feeling that I can't seem to shake. End rant.

    Loved the original, not too excited about this remake. Hope it is good, and you enjoy it.

    Not much, except for Andy.

    Oh, and Melvis is going to NAMM.

    Freeda got a secret shopper job.

    Sally went to the lawyer for her dad's estate.

    Rich (NewportLocal) hurt his shoulder picking up his 'uke case.

    Many of us slept or napped. A few had insomnia.
