Recycled 2010 stories. I used the first one for Kari entry

Office Worker Still Looking For Other Twix Bar From Monday
Cleveland,OH -- Mark O'Conner, customer specialist at Cleveland Mutual Trust, clearly remembers getting the Twix bars on Monday. The machine price went up to a dollar. So he ate one and put the other Twix bar in the wrapper in his desk.

He was still looking for the second bar today, Friday, as he could not remember eating it. Though witnesses seem to have seen him with a Twix bar Thursday close to quitting time. Mark himself suspects Max from accounting, who routinely borrows quarters out of his desk.

Book Store Guy in Baseball Cap was Scholar
Kansas City, MO -- Stopping by the local Barnes and Noble store to get some school books, Pam Tillson and daughter Amy were looking at a copy of Merchant of Venice. A guy in a baseball cap, looking much like Michael Moore, was taking a lot of space in front of the Shakespeare shelf. When he noticed them, he immediately started to give advice on editions. Turned out he was Shakespeare scholar named Barry from Oxford or something. He spoke a perfect British accent and could recite long parts of the dialogue. Amy, 14, was very charmed, as was mom.
Aliens Here to Steal Our Velcro Technology
Earth Orbit -- Earth has been tapped for some simple solutions to everyday problems. Currently five alien ships are cloaked in orbit to observe our velcro technology and its various applications in everyday life.

An anonymous source was quoted saying "we had to invent space travel so we have fallen behind in some of this simpler technology."
99% of Americans No Longer Make Anything
St. Louis, MO -- Taking the Saint Louis area as a model for the average city with a metropolitan population of a million of more, 5000 residents that were working full time were surveyed as to the product they make. 4950 could not name a specific product. Some named R&D and a field but no product by model or other name. The remaining 50 were involved in manufacture of animal feed, chemicals, construction of homes, road crews and similar local enterprise. The next biggest group of 3000 handled some product. It was either sold, marketed, distributed, recycled or put together from other smaller manufactured or farmed products.

The survey has some error, as it should have located some 20-50 airplane industry workers.


Democrats Plan to Tax Enpanding Universe
Washington, DC -- With carbon dioxide wrapped up, Democrats passed the first draft of a bill, which will tax the solar systems that are expanding toward the edges of the Universe. The money will be used to study the effects of the expansion and maybe slow it down. It may be good, or bad. They do not know.


Old Timers Excited About Daily Trip to Walgreens
Boston, MA -- Ted Stevens, 86, and Stella Stevens, 83, are always prepared for the exciting exploration of their corner drug store. They walk there from their retirement housing, though they do keep a car for those rare outings. Weekly, they can take a senior center bus to Target.

Ted, a former paleontologist, enjoys searching the shelves for new treatments for new ailments. He writes down prices of famtodine, to compare to Target prices in the Up and Up store brand.

Stella, a former brain surgeon, searches all the candy, stationery and gift aisles. Candy prices are mentally compared to Target, she needs no notes. Her mind is sharp as a scalpel.

Ted occasionally teases her and brings a bottle of what he labels "sexual lubricant", which seems to be a fancy hand creme. Stella sends him to put it back on the shelf.

Stella will occasionally buy some electronic gadget or toy and spring it on Ted at their apartment. Each pays for their own purchases. Ted does not wish to mess with checks or with coupons. "I'm no clueless grandma, cash only."

This is how American politics goes
1 Republicans cut tax, let everything run down to barely working...8 years
2 Democrats fix public spending to normal...8 years
Rinse, repeat.

I've posted a few times about Trump steel and trade plans. He actually can do this under a 1962 trade act. I put my thoughts in a blog entry.
