JUNE 5-11, 2019 UCW 27 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication What's in a name? Dog owners in China are advised to take great care when naming their pets, as was demonstrated by the case of a man from Anhui Province. The man, a dog breeder named Ban, was sum- moned by police on May 13 after post- ing on social media that he had two new dogs named Chengguan and Xie- guan — titles given to law enforcement personnel dealing with petty crimes and traffic issues, the BBC reports. He was sentenced to 10 days in a detention center in Xiangyang. One police officer said Ban had "caused great harm to the nation and the city's urban manage- ment, in terms of their feelings." For his part, Ban said he "didn't know this was illegal." [BBC, 5/14/2019] Unclear on the concept Leonard Olsen, 70, was arrested in Lakeland, Florida, on May 10 for reckless driving after an off-duty sher- iff's deputy filmed him sitting on his sunroof while his Cadillac motored down the road at about 40 mph. When Florida Highway Patrol troopers asked him about riding on his sunroof, Ol- sen said he "didn't know about that" but later admitted that the car was on cruise control. "The car drives itself and has a gigantic computer in it," he said, according to WTSP. "I thought it would be a nice way to praise God for a minute ... and that's what I did." After his arrest, Olsen told officers he would rather be taken to jail than back to his wife, who "treats (him) like a servant." [WTSP, 5/11/2019] If at first you don't succeed ... Jennifer G. Hernandez, 58, is noth- ing if not persistent. On April 22, Her- nandez walked through the vehicle gate at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, where she was stopped by a police officer. She explained that she had an interview in the complex, but the officer discovered she had no official business there and told her to leave. On May 1, Military Times reported, Hernandez returned, this time in a Lyft vehicle, again asking to see her recruiter. She was issued a written warning and directed to leave. On May 2, she was back (in an Uber this time), telling officers she returned because the recruiter's "phone was off." On that day, officers inadvertently kept her North Carolina ID card, so on May 3, she came back to pick it up, and also asked if she could speak to "Agent Penis." Promising to leave by bus, Hernandez ultimately refused, telling an officer, "Do you really think I'm going to leave?" And that's when they'd had enough. Hernandez was arrested and charged with trespassing. [Military Times, 5/8/2019] A R IES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you may want to cut back on physical activity for a little while, especially if you have been nursing an injur y.

Question: Are people still shocked about cancellations? ere are more shows on the air than there are people on the planet. TV shows had it much easier back when we only had three or even four channels. Shows like "M*A*S*H," "Cheers," "Seinfeld" and "Family Ties" were given a chance beyond two episodes. Sometimes less really is more. — Ken Matt Roush: is is an interesting point, but I think it underestimates how tough the TV business has always been. Back in the day when three (or even four) networks ruled the industry, the threshold for success was much higher, and these examples you state of shows that got to stick around long enough to become hits are exceptions to the rule. ("Cheers," "Family Ties" and maybe even "Seinfeld" may never have found their mass audience if not for "e Cosby Show" reigniting NBC's comedy fortunes.) ese days, shows are rarely pulled off the air after just a few episodes because the networks are using so many more metrics beyond the overnight ratings to gauge a show's potential. Even nonstarters usually get to play out a full 13-episode order, and sometimes an entire season, before they're taken off. But there's an unde- niable impact with the glut of Peak TV and a steady flow of streaming options that it's getting harder each year for even worthy network shows to pop the way they used to.

Jeers to Grey's Anatomy 's Dr. De- Luca (Giacomo Gianniotti) for risking his career to "save" Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) on the ABC hit. Sure, it was chivalrous to tell the bosses that he committed fraud to help an unin- sured patient when Mer actually did. But if the dude really loved her, he'd know she has survived 15 seasons of far worse jams.
