What Reagan Missed: Other News of the Day

Other News - Toronto Star vs Ford

The Toronto Star/Mayor Ford feud continues. The Toronto Star reported that mayor/butterball Rob Ford was asked to leave a military gala last month because of public drunkenness. A committee member said “he seemed either drunk, high or had a medical condition.” Rob Ford furiously denies that he has a serious problem with alcohol and his staff wants him in rehab. He also went off on a Toronto Star-hating rant. The public intoxication story came out just weeks after the major was accused of groping former rival candidate Sarah Thomson. The Toronto Star

Other News - ComboverAnother day, another Donald Trump rant. Who does Donald Trump have beef with now? The Scottish! Trump is angry at the Scottish government for allowing a wind farm to be developed off Aberdeen. Trump claims the extra wind will blow his carefully styled comb over out of place. No, but it will ruin the sea view for golfers on his Scottish golf course. That’s definitely more important than a sustainable energy source that would provide enough energy for over 50,000 homes. BBC News

Did Dennis Rodman’s diplomatic mission accomplish nothing?! CNN

Other News - Rhino PoachDrones are now being used to protect rhinos. Guards in India’s Kaziranga national park will soon get their revenge on AK-47 wielding poachers. The state government is not only sending in additional guards armed with automatic weapons but is also planning to deploy drones to monitor poachers by air. The park guards will also be immune from prosecution if they kill a poacher while protecting a rhino. But looking at the brutality in which the poachers steal the rhino horns, they might have it coming… Get ready for an increase in undocumented killings deep in the forest. The Wall Street Journal
