The Madness: Kiss a tree or just throw a stick

Do you think there's something in the water? Has to be.

But he was on time. A Hartford man due in court to answer a charge of stealing a car apparently stole a car to get to court, police said.

Looks flat to me. In America interest in the flat-Earth movement appears to be growing. In September Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., a rapper also known as B.o.B, launched a crowd-funding campaign to send satellites into orbit to determine the Earth’s shape. On November 9th, 500 “flat-Earthers” assembled in North Carolina for the first annual Flat Earth International Conference. Data from Google Trends show that in the past two years, searches for “flat earth” have more than tripled.

And that would be? After appearing on an episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that politicians could learn a thing or two from drag queens.

When pills don't work. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D.) said Tuesday he recently made a collage and painted a polar bear to deal with the stress of news about the Trump administration.

Make like a tree and leave. On Sunday, Mexican women in the town of San Jacinto Amilpas held a mock wedding ceremony to "marry" trees. These Roman Catholic women weren't switching to an odd version of paganism where trees can give consent for marriage, but rather enacting an eye-grabbing quasi-environmentalist protest.

When pills don't work - II. A former New York Times executive editor keeps a Barack Obama therapy doll in her purse. Jill Abramson, 63, the former executive editor for The New York Times from 2011 to 2014, claimed she keeps a therapy doll of the 44th president to get her through the Trump Administration.

To the mat. For the second year in a row, a transgender wrestler has won the Texas girls’ Class 6A 110-pound division.

Can you still say "I do?" A new language resource guide from the Catholic University of Dayton that encourages students to stop using gendered terms such as “husband” and “wife.” Instead, the guide suggests that students use the gender-neutral alternatives “spouse,” “partner,” and “significant other.”

Speak softly and carry a big one. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) tried and ultimately failed to impose peace and decorum with a colorful Masai talking stick in large group meetings with senators in her office during the recent shutdown. Collins used the stick during meetings with about two dozen senators. The stick was handed or tossed to a senator who would then speak without interruption. It worked somewhat until one exasperated senator threw it across the room at another senator who kept talking over him and chipped a glass elephant on a shelf in the office.
