News synergy (or I’m Colton, fly me)

Item No. 1: Boeing says it won’t be able to get its new 747-8 Freighter in the air for test flights before the end of the year.

Item No. 2: Police continue their search for Colton Harris-Moore, the teenage fugitive thief who may have taught himself to fly and may be responsible for a trail of crash-landed aircraft.

Solution to both problems: Set a trap at Paine Field by leaving the keys in the ignition of one of the 747-8s.

Come here, girlie men: President Barack Obama got a little help with his health care reform efforts from an unexpected source Tuesday when California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, R-Glutes, urged fellow Republicans to move forward with reform proposals.

Obama immediately named Schwarzenegger as Congressional Arm-Twisting Czar.

Double shot of modesty: Opponents of bikini baristas rallied in Clearview on Tuesday and have proposed posting photos and videos of scantily clad baristas on a Web site to shame the women and owners of the stands.

The Buzz prefers his coffee with less steam, but doubts the Web site will have the desired effect. When your work attire covers less than would two bandages and a shoelace, you’re fresh out of shame.
