By a slim margin, both the House and Senate passed what became known as the "Say no to Beaver" law.

Effective immediately, anyone posting photos and or reporting on beavers which are inclined to play practical jokes on other nearby beavers are no longer allowed to refer to them as a Jestin' Beaver.

This has been Hugh Jass for GT's nightly news.

GT's own, ronin.45, was questioned by Police today after it was alleged by one of his neighbors that he was captured on surveillance video trying to steal an older cat from their yard. When reached for comment, ronin.45 advised nothing could be further from the truth as he's always wanted a coyote pup.

Police spokeswoman, Luna Tikk, advised the investigation is ongoing and charges are not yet pending.

On June 6th, 1944, two LCVP landing craft carrying a total of 72 Marines and six crewmen became lost and accidentally beached near a convent in Ireland. Unable to make contact with higher command, the Marines accepted, "temporarily", the hospitality of the sisters. Hearing of the situation some years later, the Marine Corps came looking for the men, who were still listed MIA.

Unfortunately, they found the convent had been abandoned, and the residents of the prosperous small town nearby, claimed it had been unoccupied for generations. Weirdly, the Irish had no record of a town in that area, but the men, women, and many, many children living there seemed quite happy. The town is notable for having the highest number of taverns per capita of any Irish town, which is pretty impressive.

Although the invention of the light bulb is attributed to Thomas Edison, in fact it was Alvin Hennessy of Bridgewater PA who was the first.

Alvin, a glass-blower of some note, was experimenting one day with twisting his glass in a new way. Unbeknown to himself was the fact he still had a piece of mono-filament line stuck in his teeth. Upon blowing into the glass the line became unstuck and blew into the glass.

Stumped as to how to get the piece of fishing line out of his new blown glass creation Alvin stuck it in a socket to burn it out...and lo and behold it lit up.

The rest is history

GT's Own, SC Tiger, suddenly started to randomly post his responses to others in the wrong threads. GT's Nightly News team has left word with SC Tiger's spokesperson, Ty Tannick, and we will update everyone as soon as we hear anything.

This has been, Lynn Meabuck, reporting for GT Nightly News.

The popular drink Bloody Mary was named after Mary Ann Nichols, the first victim of London serial killer "Jack the Ripper and also his fifth and last victim, Irish-born Mary Kelly.
