News and Notes – 10/24/2007

Bible at school. “Alabama has became the first state in the union to approve a textbook for a course about the Bible in its public schools. There was no opposition to the October 11 vote by the state Board of Education to include The Bible and Its Influence on the state’s list of accepted textbooks. The Board held a hearing on the issue and no-one showed up; the book was approved by a vote of 8-0.” (Source: TIME Magazine)

Change for a million? A man was arrested at a Pittsburgh supermarket after he handed a one million dollar bill to the cashier and asked for change. (Since 1969, the $100 bill is the largest note in circulation.)

Turkey invasion. Wild turkeys have made a comeback in Massachusetts and are causing trouble in neighborhoods and city streets. Hmmmm, with Thanksgiving less than a month away, this sounds like really bad timing on the part of the turkeys.
