Good week for:
Innate talent, after a “bored” 10-year-old boy stole his mother’s boyfriend’s car and led police on an hour-long chase through Cleveland, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph. “He was a good driver,” one eyewitness said. “I don’t see how he even looked over the steering wheel.”
Booty shakers, with the repeal, after 91 years, of New York’s Prohibition-era “Cabaret Law,” which banned dancing in the city’s bars. “The only thing we are asking is to move our bodies rhythmically,” said one bar owner.
Man’s best friend, after two new studies found that people have more empathy for dogs suffering pain than human beings in pain, and would be more likely to donate money to save a homeless dog than a homeless person. ■
