The Daily Word in Ferguson police, UNM experiments and Empty Socks

After a report brought attention to harsh interrogation techniques administered by the CIA, the agency's chief defends the behavior, saying it's “unknowable” if they could have gotten the same answers with conventional questioning.
Due to unanswered questions, the FBI is looking into a North Carolina teen's hanging death (after it was ruled a suicide) to see if there was foul play.

The Daily Word In Snobby Egyptian Cats, Laughing Gas And Jesus Handing Out Pot
If you wanna be the new CEO of Abercrombie (apparently they’re still a store) you can be! Because that one guy quit. Or resigned. Or whatever the “cool kids” do.
A local high school creative writing teacher resigned after controversy surrounding a student's story about Jesus handing out pot. (Why wasn’t she our high school creative writing teacher?!)
And who hasn’t demanded a plane be taxied back to its terminal when flight snacks are served inadequately?
This woman dressed as the Abominable Snowman, and her poodle, Lizard, understand the true meaning of Christmas/life.
Any time we’ve asked for a bite of someone’s brownie, it was NEVER laced with pot. Thanks for nothing!
In other more duh-ish news, a scientist thinks laughing gas is a great way to treat depression! Tell my uptight dentist that. He’s stingy with that shit.
And if you have a genius cat, it’s possible she was once an “Egyptian princess” who was “used to being treated like a deity”

Thanks to good road crews, descansos remain on the highways.
