Hint: It’s all absurd.
A Cambridge too far . . . .

The resident curmudgeon at my local rag takes on the trend towards self-indulgent wedding wankery.
As my old boss used to say, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.
NRA Paradise meets the Wedding Industrial Complex:
The Post reports that bride Anna Goldshmidt and her husband Elan Stratiyevsky have hired lawyer Benjamin Brafman to sue the hotel, and the unintentional shooter, for millions for ruining the wedding day.
I predict the only winners in this will be the lawyers.
Mississippi doesn’t take kindly to their uppity kind.
June is graduation month, so when the person at the lectern says save your applause until all the graduates’ names have been called, it is probably best to heed that warning, especially if you live in Mississippi.
Police have issued warrants (that is right, warrants) for four people who shouted or cheered during Senatobia High School’s graduation ceremony.
But I’ll take one any day of the week over those stupid “ducks.” My Daddy rode in an amphibious vehicle so I don’t have to.
Their target was PedalPubs in downtown Minneapolis. Their weapons of choice were squirt guns and water balloons.
What they didn’t know was that there were off-duty cops among the passengers.
Two of the people-powered, 16-seat vehicles were hit Saturday in the late afternoon in the Warehouse District, said Lisa Stanplin, manager of Twin Cities PedalPubs.
He had all he could stands he couldn’t stands no more.
I flew into Charlotte once, back in my road warrior days. It was the only airport I had seen with a snack bar in the baggage claim area.
I found out why. I could have roasted a turkey before my bag appeared . . . .
A Canadian who would like to legally come to the United States to work because most of the jobs in his field are in the States recounts his experience. A nugget:
Sure enough, a letter arrived 30 days later. It told me the center is on the case but that I should not make too many plans for my move to the United States, because there is a waiting time for processing. I was instructed to go to the State Department’s website to check on wait times, which it bases on the “priority date” of my application. My priority date was Jan. 9, 2011, the date we filed the original paperwork.
After a few clicks I discovered that, for Americans sponsoring siblings from Canada, the wait time is about nine more years.
Yes, that’s right: 13 years total processing time. They are now processing priority dates of March 2002, and with my priority date of January 2011, they should get to me by March 2024.
I guess when you find the place of your dreams . . .
Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen says deputies following a tip found the cabin Thursday morning about 10 miles from its original location. He says the structure had been placed on stilts and was sitting at the end of a private road east of Springdale.
Turnabout is fair play.
The man was pulled into the water for about 15 seconds, Swanson said, and was brought to a hospital where he was treated for cuts on his arm and hand.
Really now, what’s the big deal? Isn’t organized fantasizing about rape and lynching just good clean college fun?
Think about it. One day these will be your judges, business leaders, and pillows of your community.

A. In Florida. Where else?
It enabled the fellow who shot a pregnant lady while playing pretend Wyatt Earp to get off without prosecution.
“An accidental discharge of a firearm causing death, even if the result of gross negligence cannot be prosecuted criminally,” King wrote. “Just as it is my duty to prosecute those who violate the law, it is equally my duty to refrain from prosecuting those whose conduct, no matter how outrageous, does not constitute a crime. This is such a case.”
According to Florida Assistant State Attorney Pete Magrino, in order to rise to the level of a crime in Florida, an unintentional shooting must meet the standard of “culpable negligence.” In his decline-to-charge memo, Magrino describes culpable negligence as “showing reckless disregard for human life.”
Had DeHayes pulled the trigger of his gun intentionally, for example, thinking the firearm was unloaded, and it went off, or had he been drunk or under the influence of drugs when the shooting occurred, that would have been a crime. But, as Magrino’s colleague Chief Assistant State Attorney Ric Ridgway told 48 Hours’ Crimesider, “If you’re just being careless with a gun and it goes off,* that’s not a crime.”
The moral of the story is, in Florida, stay sober and make it look like an accident.

This cat shows his true colors in Oakland, Maine.
Its meow sounded odd to her and the animal looked cold and hungry, so she brought out a handful of cat food. When she bent down to put the food beneath the tree, the animal pounced.
“It was all over me, just trying to attack me,” West said.
The cat jumped on her head and clawed her face, leaving scratches on her forehead and right cheek that were visible Friday afternoon.
Terrified, West retreated into her home and called the police.
“I said ‘I’ve got an attack cat here,’ ” she said.
The article goes on to point out that Oakland seems to attract whack-job animals.
