That sinking feeling

Gone in 60 Seconds II: The National Corvette Museum in Kentucky plans to display eight of the classic cars that were damaged when a sinkhole opened up beneath the museum and swallowed them.

If you’re going, go soon. Not because the cars are going anywhere, but we figure Kentucky has about two weeks before the sinkhole finishes the job.

No miracles this time: A day after the Canadian women’s hockey team defeated the U.S. women at the Sochi Olympics, the Canadian men’s team sent the U.S. team to the bronze medal game, defeating the Americans, 1-0.

With Russia’s men’s and women’s teams bounced from the medal games, the title and responsibilities of Evil Empire now transfer to Canada. Like Russian President Vladimir Putin before him, Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper must now appear shirtless at all official state functions.

Release the kraken: The city of Oak Harbor plans to have an artist create a sculpture of a kraken, a mythical giant octopus, to display in downtown. As part of the sculpture, some of the kraken’s tentacles will erupt out of the pavement as if grabbing for cars and pedestrians.

OK. Admit it. It would be kinda cool to see a sinkhole open up beneath Oak Harbor and watch the kraken drag a couple of Toyotas down with it.

The border has been closed to nonessential travel since March 2020, but Canadians have been allowed to walk over a ditch into the U.S. park and weddings have become routine there.
