Too much information?

This is a true story and worthy of being told. In a world of financial apocalypse, some banks are showing their dumb, dark side. The Bank of Wichita has become: “Redneck Bank – Where bankin’s funner.” But don’t expect a keg in the lobby and Krispy Kreme on the counter. The new entity is online only. Not to be outdone in the bad P.R. department, another bank advertises: “We make money with you, not off you.” Nobody is apologizing.

Europe is on familiar ground Рfull retreat. In response to protests from winemakers, the European Commission abandoned plans that would have broadened ways to produce ros̩ wine in Europe. Sissy wine.

A district judge in D.C. found a former pharmaceutical exec guilty and ordered the perp to write a book about making false statements in a patent dispute involving Plavix, the Canadians, generics and god knows what else. Is that like writing one hundred times on the blackboard?

If you are lucky enough to find one, you know that the long-beaked echidna is one of the oldest and weirdest-looking mammals on earth. The strange little creature is a native of New Guinea and is a true living link between reptiles and birds – and regular mammals like us. These ugly guys may look like Brillo on steroids, but they pack some serious equipment. When in the mood, Little Johnny can extrude a four-headed penis. TMI?
