Odd News Stories

A few odd stories and strange news out of the great state of Oregon…
SALEM, Ore. - Oregon legislators and staff members should not be drunk while performing their official duties, a citizen panel says.
Apparently some have found it a bit odd that legislators are showing up with booze on their breath and voting against drunk driving…Ok, no Ted Kennedy jokes, please…

And this also out of Oregon…
PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) - An Oregon man has filed a $1.6 million "loss of companionship" claim against a neighbor who ran over his family's 13-year-old dog, Grizz.
Hey, don’t mess with a man’s best friend!

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finns should be happy about paying some of highest income taxes in Europe. At least that's what Finland's new Happy Taxpayers' Association says.
This is just too hilarious to comment on. It sort of feels like they are adopting Kindergarten-type motivational techniques! What’s next, smiley faces and little bear stickers for taxpayers that pay on time – oh, and you must also pay with a good attitude!
