Gone to pot

The grass is always greener: With the opening of recreational marijuana stores in Vancouver, Washington, Portland residents are making the short trip across the border.

In response, the American Red Cross has set up hipster refugee camps in Vancouver and started programs to repatriate pot smokers to Portland.

Contented cows: A filmmaker is following cows in Skagit County for a documentary about the dairy industry, even strapping a video camera to the head of a cow.

Word of the comical scene spread quickly in the barn, with other cows laughing so hard that milk came out of their noses.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1509, theologian John Calvin, a leader of the Protestant Reformation, was born in France.

During Calvin’s childhood, French newspapers carried a cartoon of Calvin’s daily exploits — sledding down hills, fighting space monsters and pestering a girl named Susie — all while accompanied by his stuffed tiger whom Calvin imagined to be political philosopher Thomas Hobbes.
