Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
People ask me where I get all the stupid stuff in this blog, and I have to say, honestly, the best of it is straight out of the news.
Here’s an example. According to an Associated Press story, officials in Georgia are considering saving money by putting prisoners in fire stations.
According to the story, the inmates would respond to all emergencies, including residential fires, alongside “traditional” firefighters.
Okay, it seems a large fire swept through Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival center this week, “destroying thousands of costumes and floats and throwing preparations for Brazil’s annual festival of hedonism into chaos.”
I know this is a serious thing. They work pretty hard all year long on that stuff, and Carnival starts in three weeks.
