NEWScoop: My Land, Your Smokes, Rodney Dangerfield, Heroes, and Snake Bites

This Land is Your Land, this Land is My Land
A little lady out in Missouri City read something about a thing, that allows someone to do something in a house that isn’t theirs. Details are as fuzzy as my memory of last Halloween. That’s you wearing your grandad’s bifocals. Watch out for anyone claiming “adverse possession.” Visit MyFoxHouston for more.

Bumming Smokes by the Carton
I used to be a pack a day, pack and half a day kind of guy. I never once considered stealing cigs. That’s a lie. Maybe a few menthols from my roommates. Desperate times. One dollar and thirty cents was enough for either Patriots or Carnivals. These fellas gotta be looking to resell. Visit ABC13 for more.

Ah, Worse than that Time Rodney Dangerfield Went Back to School
I can’t say I remember Dangerfield’s reasons for taking college classes back in ‘86. I do remember him jumping from diving board to diving board. The moral clearly lost. Whatever it was, Virgil Clinton Powell or Solomon Hobbs Jr., clearly missed it too. He lied. He didn’t get no education in the process. He didn’t participate in no diving competition.¬†Visit KHOU for more.

Person Doing Good, That’s Good News
No camera phoning. No tweeting. Just a belly full of have-to. That’s what happened when one citizen noticed flames coming from the apartment next to theirs.¬†One life saved. To the hero, no name was given. That’s class. Visit ABC13 for more.

Diamondback Not a Girl’s Best Friend
You’ve been bitten by a snake, in the forest… on a trail, relatively isolated from civilization. Can you really be all that surprised? Were there no ATMs being forklifted? It’s fair to say this was a public service in alerting people to a problem, but beyond that, I fail to see its importance in the newwwws. Visit KHOU for more.
