According to the CDC, US birthrates are at an all-time low. Well, sure, the NBA playoffs are about to start. 

In Ohio, a 60-year-old man died in his squalid shack and his decomposed body was partially consumed by his 50 starving dogs. On the bright side, he doesn't have to hear about the Kardashians anymore. 

 Since you asked:
Neil Young's "Harvest" has aged well. It was the anti-Monkees album Young always wanted to make. Take how they recorded and packaged the Monkees and do the opposite and you had "Harvest."

Young even fought to have the album wrapped in a biodegradable cover, but the record company did not go for it. About 40 years ahead of his time. First time I ever saw recycled paper.

Comprised of tunes mostly rejected by Stills and Crosby - although they sing on the album - part of it was recorded in Young's barn. When creating the mix between a recording in his house and a recording in his barn, Young was heard yelling to the engineer;

"More barn." 

You can hear the barn in the songs.  

Lex's Lou-uh-vull fried chicken: 

Bone-in, skin-on thighs. Marinate a few hours in buttermilk.
Season flour with salt, pepper, Old Bay, smoked paprika, garlic powder.

Heat Wesson oil to 400.  Dredge chicken in flour, plunk in and fry - oil should cover chicken - at 350/375 for 12 - 14 minutes. 

Golden brown, crisp, juicy, awesome. 

While chicken is resting for five minutes, sautee two-minute-blanched green beans in butter until hot and sprinkle with mortar-ground almonds, garlic clove and lemon zest with a tad of olive oil.  

Heat and butter cornbread and serve.

Uh huh, dat's right, I just up and done bitch-slapped the Colonel.

She will cut a bitch, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

Los Angeles Laker, Metta World Peace, has been suspended after knocking out an Oklahoma player, James Harden, with a vicious elbow to the head. Good thing he is named Metta World Peace, if he was Metta World War this Harden guy would be dead.

In Las Vegas, the Heart Attack Grill claimed it’s second victim, a woman in her 40’s had to go to the hospital after collapsing eating a double-bypass burger, smoking a cigarette and drinking a margarita. Who could predict that health-nut would have a problem?

Los Angeles Laker, Metta World Peace, has been suspended after knocking out an Oklahoma player, James Harden, with a vicious elbow to the head. Metta hit Harden so hard it would have knocked sense into a Kardashian.

A hunter in Florida accidentally shot his girlfriend in the legs after mistaking her for a wild hog. It could have been worse, what if he had mistaken the hog for his girlfriend?

Deion Sanders tweeted pictures of himself and his two sons filling out domestic abuse arrest reports against their mother. Looks like somebody got their Christmas card picture taken early.

They say this East Coast winter storm will be bad. How bad? Mitt Romney is strapping sled dogs to the roof of his car.
