Command of the Language - 07/23/14

  If you have children, you know how exciting it is to see them learning new words and demonstrating a command of the language.  For the past couple of days when my five year old and I have been out, he has asked me whether cars near us are more expensive than mine. 
  At first blush, you're thinking ok, what's this all about but my son is very vehicle aware.  His first favorite car was the Ford Mustang.  Lately he's fascinated with Corvettes.  I have taken him to several cruise-ins and we have looked at a lot of cars. 
  Today, after about four of those "is your car more expensive than that one," we were next to a pick up truck that must have been a dozen years old.  My son says dad, that truck is more expensive than yours. 
  That's when I asked him what expensive means.  He says that means a car is fast.  I laughed out loud.  Just because your little uses a word correctly in a sentence isn't proof they know what it means.  Great memory for me.

CHURCH OF CANNABIS INDIANA

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- There was no holy smoke -- at Indianapolis' First Church of Cannabis. About two dozen police officers kept watch over the inaugural service yesterday, after authorities threatened to arrest congregants who smoked pot there. Still, the lack of marijuana didn't seem to be too much of a buzz kill. Congregants danced to reggae and funk, passing and puffing from imaginary joints. A mural mimicking Michelangelo's famed Sistine Chapel fresco was painted on a wall behind them -- but instead of God's hand reaching out to man, the image shows God offering mankind a big joint. The church was formed as a test of Indiana's new religious objections law. Members are hoping to legalize marijuana in the state as a religious liberty.

DIAMONDBACKS-MCCAIN FOUL BALL

PHOENIX (AP) -- Senator John McCain is blaming glaring sunlight for his failure to catch a foul ball that fell onto his lap at an Arizona Diamondbacks game Tuesday night. The foul by Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins landed in the seats, took a big bounce and caromed into McCain's lap. He wasn't able to react fast enough, throwing his hands up in disgust as the ball rolled back toward the field. A fan tried to give McCain the ball, but he waved it off. McCain explained the botched catch in a tweet the next day.

LOUISIANA GOVERNOR-BRITNEY SPEARS

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Donate baby one more time? One of Louisiana's candidates for governor is trying to draw campaign donors with a Britney Spears ticket giveaway and backing from the superstar's mom. State Rep. John Bel Edwards, one of four major gubernatorial candidates and the only Democrat, has released a fundraising email touting the Lynne Spears endorsement. In the email, the Edwards campaign offers people who donate $50 a chance to win a trip to see Britney Spears live in Las Vegas.

STOLEN TOILET PAPER

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- The T-P is M-I-A. After a citywide effort to collect toilet paper for charity in Springfield, Illinois -- 10,000 rolls have gone missing. Officials with the St. Martin de Porres Center say someone took the toilet paper from a locked trailer. Volunteers collected thousands of rolls after the food pantry reported it hadn't been able to distribute toilet paper for five years because it is too expensive. But there is some good news -- a local grocery store says it will replace the stolen rolls for free.
