Can you believe that these news bites are the leftovers from Memorial Day weekend? I hope you guys all had a good one whether you were with friends, family or none of the above. The news has been piling up and mostly all of it has been worthy of being on our front page. These few bits of news didn’t make it unfortunately, but they’re no less worthy of a quick look. Being the hypochondriac that I am, I particularly enjoyed reading that my phone is trying to slowly kill me. So, go on. Take that quick look… you know you want to.
