District completing plans to lease motels to house homeless families this winter
House panel finds no intelligence failure in Benghazi attacks
This may put the brakes on the partisan anti-Hillary juggernaut.

This is a follow-up to two recent posts:
Announcement: I’m working!
Announcement: I’m not working after all.
Omarr’s Cancer and Leo for Saturday 2014-11-22 read as follows:
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look before you leap. A new love interest may have your heart all aflutter, but unless you share a few common interests, the physical attraction won’t last long. Get to know the person behind that pretty face before progressing any further.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t burn bridges behind you. While you may well be on the path to a bright future, don’t forget about the past experiences that have brought you here. Be wary of signing on the dotted line or entering into an agreement.
As I noted in the previous update, the Cancer’s reference to romance could as easily refer to a job.
Previous update: Love and money
Limits of TV realism
Under certain circumstances, we get to watch a lot of re-runs. I really like The Rifleman.
However, he kills one or more people in almost every episode. Where does he bury the bodies?
If I dug as many graves as he does, I’d probably be built like Chuck Connors, too.

A Honeymoon Experiment, by Margaret and Stuart Chase
An accountant by trade, Stuart Chase was anything but your stereotypical nerdy bean-counter. He was actively involved in a mind-boggling range of interests. His life story fascinates.
He and his bride chose an unconventional honeymoon: they went to Rochester, NY as homeless people.
This book tells the story.
On this site, I provide the complete text of another of his books, Guides to Straight Thinking, here.
