RANDOM: Life is stranger than fiction, part 2
Years ago, I collected newspaper articles that were funny, tragic, outlandish, or sometimes a combination of all three. While still an avid reader of print news media, I no longer cut out unusual articles. I am listing some of the more notable headlines in my collection that illuminate this weird, wild, unpredictable world we live in.
