Would-be burglar apparently scared by singing fish

Associated Press Feb 5, 2014 6:37 PM

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — Big Mouth Billy Bass apparently got the best of a would-be burglar in Minnesota.

Authorities in Rochester say the motion-activated singing fish apparently scared off an intruder who tried to break into the Hooked on Fishing bait and tackle shop.

The novelty bass had been hung near the door and would start singing “Take Me to the River” whenever someone entered the shop.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says the fish was found on the floor after the intruder knocked it down while breaking the door to get in late Sunday or early Monday.

Sgt. Tom Claymon tells the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1itbp3W) the would-be burglar left without stealing anything, including cash that had been left in “a very visible spot.”

Boehner splashes cold water on immigration reform

IN this article Speaker of the House Boehner says that the immigration reform bill is dead in his mind because of the lack of trust between he and the White House. If there is a lack of trust it should be on the side of the White House who has tried olive branch after olive branch until the tree  is practically bare. Please call your representative in Congress and tell them it’s not fair to hold 12 million people hostage because of the winds of politics.

Sochi Winter Olympics: Ban Ki-moon condemns attacks on LGBT

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/feb/06/sochi-olympics-ban-ki-moon-lgbt-prejudice
In my memory Winter Olympics have never been this controversial. Weird toilets, reporter housing incomplete, stadiums costing three and a half times their original budget and massive corruption are stealing what is to be event about sports and the best of the best.

Sandra Fluke Announces Run for California State Senate

By Andrew Rafferty

Women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke announced Wednesday that she has decided to run for a California State Senate seat, reversing a previous move toward making a run for U.S. Congress.

“My entire career has been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking or advocating for working families,” Fluke said in a statement. “I am committed to continuing that fight in Sacramento.”

The Democratic lawyer heavily considered running for the Congressional seat that will be vacated after Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Cali., retires at the end of the year. Fluke was one of three Democratic candidates who filed paperwork seeking the state party’s endorsement in what was expected to be a hard fought primary.

Fluke was catapulted into the national spotlight in 2012 after conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called a “slut” after she delivered a Congressional testimony in support of mandatory health care insurance coverage for contraception.
