Rich's Joke Of The Day:

A reporter from Chicago was visiting an old colleague, who now edited a newspaper in a tiny Vermont town. "I don't see how you do it," the reporter said. "How can you drum up interest in the news when everybody in town knows what everybody else is doing?"

"Sure they know," the editor said, "but they read the paper to see who got caught at it."

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!

Authorities in Oregon said they arrested a 49-year-old man accused of taking off all his clothes at an airport security screening area. Police said the man was going through security at Portland International Airport when he took his clothes off and refused to put them back on. His actions caused two screening lanes to be closed and some passengers covered their eyes and their children's eyes and moved away from the screening area. Others stepped out of the screening lanes to look, laugh and take photos. The man said he disrobed as a form of protest against screeners who he felt were harassing him. He was taken to jail.
