The Weekly Schadenfreude: New York State Governor Patterson wanted to put New York State workers on a temporary 1 day per week un-paid furlough. A judge put a temporary restraining order on the furloughs. So instead Patterson may lay off 10,000+ state workers. I bet 1 day off isn’t looking so bad now huh? If you have a job be thankful you’re employed.

The Weekly Holy Shit Headline: A 13-year-old middle schooler named Raymond Hosier was suspended for wearing rosary beads to school. The school says their dress code states that beads may not be worn because they’ve been known to be gang symbols. The young man wears them as a remembrance of his older brother Joey who was killed by car back in 2005 and for his uncle who died of cancer two weeks ago. The news story is here. The comments on the story were VERY interesting too!
