craziness around the nation

Everyday, something new happens (a new crime, a new baby, a world record broken, a new celebrity scandal etc) so what is the crazy thing that you heard today that bothers you or makes you proud or just puzzles you? In Maryland (Baltimore), they are trying to cut police officer's and firefighters pension because of budget cuts. I have a suggestion. Instead of making policemen and firefighters suffer after they spent their lives putting their lives on the line everyday to keep us safe or save our lives, let's cut some of the welfare benefits and force people to stop having kids they can't afford or force people to actually go out and work.

Maybe these reality shows are going a bit overboard. Prime example
DETROIT - Police who carried out a raid on a family home that left a 7-year-old girl dead over the weekend were accompanied by a camera crew for a reality television show, and an attorney says video of the siege contradicts the police account of what happened.

Geoffrey Fieger, an attorney for the family of young Aiyana Jones, said he has seen three or four minutes of video of the raid, although he declined to say whether it was shot by the crew for the A&E series "The First 48," which has been shadowing Detroit homicide detectives for months.

Police have said officers threw a flash grenade through the first-floor window of the two-family home, and that an officer's gun discharged, killing the girl, during a struggle or after colliding with the girl's grandmother inside the home.

Very sad. My prayers go out to the family
What are you thoughts on reality shows?
