The White House released a video of President Obama extending his Valentine's Day greetings. It shows the president saying that if you haven't met that someone special, he hopes you'll meet that someone special soon. Of course, he is talking to a drone.

Pope Benedict's resignation Tuesday led to forecasts that Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana could be the first black pope. It's controversial. His name wasn't out there for one day and alredy Donald Trump is claiming his birth cerificate says he was born a Methodist.

U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee addressed the House Thursday and identified herself as a freed slave. That makes her 160 years old. It's the same kind of math the Democrats used in promoting the health care bill to explain how it would save money.

Senator Rand Paul threatened to hold John Brennan's nomination for CIA Director Thursday over the use of drone missile attacks on U.S. citizens. He asked Brennan if drones could be used on Americans in America and Brennan wouldn't answer. Coincidentally, the San Bernardino Sheriffs are still puzzled over how that fire started in the cabin at Big Bear.

Oklahoma police discovered a methamphetamine lab inside a Porta-Potty on a golf course outside the town of Purcell on Thursday. The police said they have one suspect. He signed his golf card and turned it in after completing nine holes in 23 minutes.
