News You Need To KNow

1. After being accused of extortion and other charges, state senator John Ford remains free on bond. Meanwhile, his supporters are beginning to whisper that the FBI’s “Tennessee Waltz” sting operation was nothing short of entrapment. Oh my. We think this is going to be a more complicated case than Michael Jackson’s.

2. Northwest Airlines announces that it will no longer hand out free magazines on their planes as a cost-savings measure. They had already stopped giving away those little bags of peanuts. What are they going to eliminate next — sodas? Seat belts? Barf bags?

3. The so-called Hack’s Cross Creeper, already linked to some 35 burglaries in the Germantown area, has apparently returned after two homeowners last week discovered objects missing when they woke up. The police called the thief bold, one officer saying, “He has no nerve endings whatsoever.” Maybe — or maybe it’s just easy to simply walk into homes. How many times do we have to tell you? Lock your doors, people!

4. Yet another earthquake rattles the Mid-South. This one, centered 90 miles east of Memphis, is the third rattler since February. An earthquake expert says that “stress levels are low,” but he’s talking about below the ground. Up here, our own stress levels are beginning to get pretty high.
