Rat Race: The Talkin' Headline Blues #170
What kind of rat race are you involved in: Presidential? NFL Draft? Household? Work? Local School Council? Or just trying to float on up to Heaven before everyone else?

Historic Indiana record was from homeless ice.
Obama tips official rodent.
Sexy multimillion dollar Noah’s ark is Detroit.

There was a WGN news van around the corner from my house this morning, reporting on who knows what. I thought I heard a helicopter churning outside the bedroom window last night, but chalked it up to a dream. But maybe that was it? Or maybe it was a UFO? Maybe our salvation is upon us and our overlords will take us away from this rat race. Maybe WGN was reporting on that?

Or maybe they were just getting a live shot near the Starbuck’s because some woman in Chicago is suing Starbuck’s because they put TOO MUCH ICE in her drink. I have a tip for this lady:

Stop going to Starbuck’s.

But also, too much ice in your Starbuck’s drink is a good thing. More ice means less of the other sludge they put in the cups. So, if you are brave enough to go to a Starbuck’s, always ask for MORE ICE. Or, AS MUCH ICE AS YOU CAN FIT. Or, even, JUST GIVE ME A HANDFUL OF ICE, PLEASE.

That would be a VENTI MANCIATA ICE. Only costs $9.91.

Anyhow, here are the articles from CNN I used for the song this week. Enjoy!
