Friday Cat Blogging: Reading Headlines To Buddy

Story Here Though I like what the Miami Herald wrote about the guy who went off on a Starbucks employee which started this dumbassery. Lead line: David Sanguesa said he was having a bad day. ….. Previous bad days: the one in 2008 when he was arrested on a DUI charge. The one a week later when he was again charged with DUI.
