Homelessness is not a laughing matter. On the streets of every city and town in America, we find those who are much less fortunate than we are. Some are mentally disabled, and others have suffered immense financial hardships. With that in mind, there are a select few homeless who have a point to advertise themselves in creative and hysterical ways. These homeless are worth checking out, as they somehow find a way to remain chipper and candid, even in the worst of life conditions.

The death toll from bush fires in southern Australia has reached at least 93, the worst in the country’s history. Thousands of firefighters, aided by the army, are battling several major fires, and the number of dead is expected to rise as fires are put out. Arsonists responsible for lighting the fires could be charged with murder, police have said.

Entire towns in Victoria state were destroyed as fires were fanned by extreme temperatures and wind. Witnesses described seeing walls of flames four storeys high, trees exploding and the skies raining ash, as fires tore across 30,000 hectares (115 sq miles) of forests, farmland and towns.

Maybe Kanye misspoke when he said he wanted to be more famous than Elvis.  Judging by his new “Sgt. Pepper’s” look, he may have a different impossible goal in mind.  No word on the lady whispering in his ear at the My House nightclub in Hollywood, but hopefully she’s not telling him about the band Kiss.

Is this guy not in jail yet?

At least 23 people have been killed in Madagascar after police opened fire on an opposition demonstration in the island nation’s capital, reports say. Some reports suggest that as many as 30 people may have been killed. There have been repeated protests against the dismissal of Antananarivo Mayor Andry Rajoelina, who is engaged in a power struggle with the president.

The sacked mayor accuses President Marc Ravalomanana of misspending public money and being a dictator. “Up to now, 25 are dead,” an unnamed senior police officer at the scene was quoted by Reuters as saying.

Robert Holding, 72, from Burnley, told police he supplied the drug to 17 customers after detectives raided his home and found nearly 6oz (167g) of cannabis in an egg crate in the van he used for deliveries.

“He said he sold a 9oz (255g) bar about every three weeks and sold it for a relatively cheap value. He said that customers left him notes saying, for example, ‘Can I have an ounce this week or can I have an eighth.’”

And now, from Rio de Janieiro comes word from none other than Ronaldo that people should not throw the baby out with the bong water — especially in light of the recent travails of the Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps.

“There is no need to persecute someone that has faced up to what he has done, having been at the Olympic Games and that has won almost everything that he can in his career,” Ronaldo said. “It is clear that all sportsmen must set young people a good example, but what will he be remembered for, winning all his competitions at an Olympic Games?”

The peers say Britain has constructed one of the most extensive and technologically advanced surveillance systems in the world in the name of combating terrorism and crime and improving administrative efficiency.

The report, Surveillance: Citizens and the State, by the Lords’ constitution committee, says Britain leads the world in the use of CCTV, with an estimated 4m cameras, and in building a national DNA database, with more than 7% of the population already logged compared with 0.5% in the America.
