It's Wednesday, it's sunny and the world is a strange place.

Two Bernalillo county commissioners are allegedly backing away slowly from a tax proposal to raise $42 million dollars, half of which would be used for mental health services.

It’s only going to get hotter in New York, according to this recent report.

A Rio Rancho woman, her infant son and her nephew all went missing Tuesday night.

Gun rights activists claim that allowing students to carry weapons on campus will help reduce sexual assaults.

If you’re visiting Niagara Falls right now, it looks like a different planet, thanks to heavy snowfall and ice.

Hey, kehd, quit jumpin’ ouddaya windows into snowbanks! The Mayor of Boston politely asks residents to stop leaping out of their windows and decks into snowbanks, because it’s “a foolish thing to do and you could kill yourself.”

A man leaving a Karaoke bar was mugged, suffered a severe concussion and became a genius. No, seriously.

Sissy, a miniature schnauzer from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, walked 20 blocks to be with her owner, who is recovering from cancer surgery at a nearby hospital. That's love, man.

Noted New York Times columnist David Carr passed away yesterday. He was 58.

FBI Director James Comey gave a talk on Thursday at Georgetown University, addressing “hard truths” police face concerning racial bias.

After a week or so of scrutiny, NBC decided to suspend Brian Williams without pay for six months. DON’T LIE TO THE PEOPLE, BRIAN!

The Daily Word In Bossy Vaginas, Scottish Geese and Expensive Chile

By Amelia Olson [ Thu Feb 5 2015 2:54 PM ]
The Daily Word

Your vagina is a boss!

If you’re a teen who texts and drives, a New Mexican college student is in the process of releasing an app that will track every move you make while operating a vehicle!

The University of Vermont acknowledges a third gender and allows students to be identified by their chosen first name, even if they have not legally changed their name yet. They also honor preferred pronouns. AKA VERMONT RULES.

The woman who famously called Angelina Jolie a “talentless brat” (um, hasn’t she seen Hackers?) stepped down from her position at Sony.

A totally irrelevant piece about Scottish geese.

There is no price too high to keep us from our chile, but dammit if we don’t get more rain.
