Mid-Week News: Quelle Horreur

Welcome back you lovely peaches, you kindly kids with faces I could kiss and cheeks I could ravish. It’s all about the news, and well, the news can be what the French refer to as quelle horreur.

I’ll be your lovely host this week and I’ll be drunk on media power for the next few minutes, as we triumphantly return, perhaps out of bravery, perhaps out of masochism, reading up on the semi-uncontrollable events that define the world we burn so brightly in. So strap on your helmets, let’s get this news fiesta started and head into the current events unknown.

That wraps us up for this mid-week-stravaganza’s worst and best news. Tune in next time for a delicious hapdashery of news that matters, news they want you to think matters, and matters that you think should be news.  But for now, it’s all over but the tears.
