Weekend news ruled my life, and not just Saturday and Sunday. Monday came along and I found myself still reeling over having posted two hard-hitting news items on disease in Kern County. Two humans with West Nile virus and nearly 60 cases of pandemic swine flu in one month. That's enough to get anyone to wear a CDC bubble suit to bed. In the case of West Nile, real estate moguls were warned to take care of properties with abandoned swimming pools. I doubt if they will.
I'm happy to say that Face News has a super secret spy out on the scene providing stories and snapping photos, including one of a rather loopy woman who drove into a bank on Monday. She thought she had her car in reverse. One witness who almost got run over said, "I cheated death."
Yes, for the Face Agent! That was a term coined by my kid who said, "Whoah, you have a Face Agent."
I'm also happy to say I'm working with local ESPN radio. Corey Costelloe provides some rather colorful sports commentary. And he plugs Face News on the air. A win-win. We're supposed to have lunch tomorrow and talk news strategies.
Book promotions are going well. I'll talk more about Bakotopia in the next post. Matt Munoz wrote a killer article where he called me 'Lord of Trivia.' In the meantime, I'm still writing Random and Weird news. The latest? Check them out. They're all worth a look:
I'll be sure to soon post some exclusive oddities just for Red Room in a future post. That would be fun! In the meantime, have an odd night, won't you?
