    Donald Trump goes on a fact-finding visit to Israel. While
    he is on a tour of Jerusalem, he suffers a heart attack and
    dies.

    The undertaker tells the American diplomats accompanying
    him, 'You can have him shipped home for $50,000, or you can
    bury him here, in the Holy Land for just $100.'
    The American diplomats go into a corner to discuss for a
    few minutes. They return with their answer to the
    undertaker and tell him they want Donald Trump shipped home.

    The undertaker is puzzled and asks, 'Why would you spend
    $50,000 to ship him home, when it would be wonderful to be
    buried here and you would spend only $100?

    The American diplomats reply, 'Long ago a man died here,
    was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead.
    We just can't take the risk.'

    More about above ^ The Lessons of the Seattle Plane Crash

    It’s not possible to eliminate all risks from modern life—but airlines and regulators work hard to reduce them after each new incident, anyway.

    Robbers with hunting knives demand $1 from store, then flee

    BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Two young men made an unusually small request as they robbed a store in Massachusetts by demanding a single dollar in their robbery.

    Police say two men entered the Brockton Market and Deli around lunchtime Tuesday while brandishing large hunting-style knives and demanded a single dollar. The men then fled.

    Airline worker tracks down cancer patient’s bag, delivers it

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — A cancer patient says a Southwest Airlines employee went above and beyond to help track down her missing luggage that contained important medication.

    Stacy Hurt says she called customer service July 23 at Pittsburgh International Airport after her luggage failed to arrive on a flight from Nashville.

    She was panicking because the bag contained medication that helps her with the side effects of chemo for her colon cancer. It also had sentimental items like a rosary and a lucky T-shirt. She was worried it wouldn’t arrive in time for her chemotherapy appointment the next day.

    Mr Met gives fan the finger, employee out as team mascot

    NEW YORK (AP) — Even Mr. Met is frustrated with the team’s disappointing start.

    New York’s funny-looking mascot flashed his “middle” finger at a fan during Wednesday night’s 7-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, and the team says the employee who did it won’t work in the costume again.

    A person tweeted video of the incident, which soon went viral online, and the club quickly issued a statement.

    “We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee,” the Mets said in an email attributed to the organization. “We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally.”

    Cops put parking lot crack cocaine in ‘lost and found’

    WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — Police in northeastern Pennsylvania say they’ve put about $1,600 worth of crack cocaine in their “lost and found box” in hopes of reuniting the drug with its rightful owner.

    The (Wilkes-Barre) Citizens’ Voice (http://bit.ly/2rVu6I4 ) reports the drug was found in the parking lot of a shopping center outside Wilkes-Barre (WILKS’-ba-ree).

    Wilkes-Barre Township police posted about the find on the department’s Facebook page. In a post headlined “FOUND ITEM,” police quipped the drug had been placed in the department’s “lost and found box” and invited the owner to come retrieve it.

    Someone in Virginia is shaving other peoples’ cats

    WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) — Why would someone go around shaving other people's cats?

    The mystery has the attention of police in Waynesboro, a small city in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley where someone has been taking cats and precisely shaving their underbellies or legs. It's happened to seven cats since December.

    Police Capt. Kelly Walker said Friday that all the cats have been returned otherwise unharmed, but some seem bothered. Walker says all the cats clearly had owners — they were well-groomed and wearing collars. He says police aren't sure what crime has been committed, but the owners "would just like it to stop."

    Georgia parents win legal battle to name baby girl Allah

    A couple in the US state of Georgia have won their legal battle to give their baby daughter the surname Allah.

    The state had refused to issue a birth certificate for ZalyKha Graceful Lorraina Allah on the grounds that neither parent has that last name.

    The American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the case, called the decision a victory for free expression.

    But the largest Muslim advocacy group in the US said the surname could be considered offensive.

    "Today Only! CDL permits only $6.99!

    Yet another stellar reason why state issued credentials should not be purchased at a big box store. (shouldn't be able to buy guns or ammo there either)
