The Daily Word in Gary King, Jonah Hill and a billion grasshoppers

The Daily Word

Good morning. It's Wednesday, June 4,

and Gary King is your new Democratic candidate for Governor,

the University of New Mexico is making grumpy faces about Professor (and Alibi correspondent) David Correia's recent arrest for protesting APD's pro-shooting policies,

and grasshoppers continue to swarm in such numbers around Albuquerque that the cloud is registering on the National Weather Service's Doppler radar "extending like a thick blanket over a mile into the atmosphere."

Meanwhile, the lawyer for one of two pre-teen girls who were arrested for trying to murder their friend in order to summon an Internet meme, thinks his client may need a mental health evaluation,

Jonah Hill is really, really sorry for calling a photographer a "faggot,"

yesterday was "Robocop Day" in Detroit,

and a Japanese "alternative scientist" claims that yelling insults at rice will make it rot faster.

Have a great day!
