Flooding in Atlanta

Torrential rains that have already led to at least half a dozen deaths in the Southeast have now produced flooding that overwhelmed a water treatment plant in Atlanta this morning, “causing a massive dump of raw sewage” into the Chattahoochee River, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

According to the newspaper, “the R.M. Clayton plant is the largest in Georgia with capacity to treat 240 million gallons of sewage a day.”

Sucks people are loosing their lives and ruining amusement parks is not cool either.

A truck carrying peanut butter and jelly sandwiches overturned on U.S. 52, closing a stretch of the highway between Durango and Sageville.

The semitrailer was hauling about 24,000 pounds of sandwiches early Monday when it flipped onto its side north of Sageville, according to authorities. While crews unloaded the boxes, the road was closed to all traffic but emergency vehicles.

Gay Loggers for Jesus to march in Bozeman

It looks like the Bozeman Tea Party will not be the only march down Bozeman’s Main Street this Fourth of July.

City officials have approved a parade request for the Green Coalition of Gay Loggers for Jesus.

The parade will happen an hour before the scheduled Tea Party march, extending the total time of Main Street closure from 9 a.m. to noon.

Gay Loggers for Jesus President Brian Leland said his group offers a more fiscally conservative Independence Day parade. Unlike the Tea Party, his group will pay for all costs incurred by the march, he said.

“To us, it seems really ironic that an organization that is concerned about taxpayer burdens, taxes, spending by government, that they should incur additional costs to the city,” Leland said.

Awesome.

Jim Lehrer News Hour to get makeover. Will now be PBS News Hour

Article

Mr. Lehrer, who will turn 75 next Tuesday, isn’t stepping down. But in September the program will be retitled “PBS NewsHour” and return to a two-anchor format, which it had until 1995, when Robert MacNeil left.

Linda Winslow, the executive producer of “NewsHour,” said the changes will be made for a simple reason: “What we were trying to accomplish was a more engaging program.”

By far my favorite TV news. It is very informative and fair. There are not shouting matches or celebrity gossip crap. Best of all no sports. Just needs more lasers.

it is so sucky

Police arrest Mich. man for car wash vacuum sex

Police say a Michigan man has been arrested after “receiving sexual favors from a vacuum” at a car wash.

Police Sgt. Gary Breidinger says a resident called to report suspicious activity at the car wash about 6:45 a.m. An officer approached on foot and caught the man in the act.

The suspect, whose name wasn’t immediately released, is being held in the Saginaw County Jail.

homebrewer arrested for making poppy beer

A guy I know made catnip beer. He thought it was lemon grass.

Article

Police raided a Westside house Friday morning where they suspected people were producing opiates and arrested a UC Santa Cruz doctoral candidate who said he used dried poppy pods to flavor home-brewed beer a month ago.

“All I did was make a poppy beer,” said Chad Renzelman, 28, who was arrested at his Bay Street home Friday. “I spent all morning in jail for brewing beer. I had no idea what I was doing was illegal.”

But police reported that Renzelman, who studies chemistry, allegedly had used a chemical process to extract opium from poppy plant pods, then converted the opium to morphine.
