The Story Inside The Story: And the Drugs Keep Rolling in

GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (January 18, 2023)--In today's news, it was revealed that a library in a small town near Boulder, Co. had to be temporarily closed to clean the restrooms of the chemicals and residue of methamphetamines.  For several days prior, people complained about strange odors, sore throats, and even a dizzy feeling.
While investigating the problem, it came to light that one of Boulder's libraries had been closed for the same reason and has not yet re-opened.

whether it was intentional or not.  Here goes.  Congressional Representative Shelia Jackson Leigh of the Houston, TX area demanded that she be allowed to see and hold the American flag which our astronauts left on Mars.  First, Ms. Jackson, no human has ever been to Mars and, if anyone had been and left our flag on Mars, we aren't going back to bring it home so you can touch it.  As Jay Leno says "you get the government you deserve."
