WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 25-OCTOBER 1, 2019 UCW 27 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Police report A Texas motorcyclist with the memorable nickname "Baby Jesus" taunted Blue Mound police on Aug. 10 as they tried to pull him over. Police posted dashcam video of Jesus Sebas- tian Gomez doing wheelies and standing on his motorcycle while weaving in and out of traffic, eventually getting away from officers. Fox News reported that witnesses viewing the video helped identify the rider, and police issued a statement urging Gomez to turn himself in. "(Y) ou need to come speak with us regarding this incident or we can come to you. (We could have a come to 'Baby Jesus' meet- ing)," they offered. Gomez sur- rendered to the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office on Sept. 4 and was charged with evading arrest. [Fox News, 9/6/2019] What's in a name? Rep. Raul Ruiz, 47, a California Democrat representing the 36th Congressional District, may face an unusual opponent in the No- vember 2020 election: GOP can- didate Raul Ruiz, 57, a construc- tion contractor. "I want to give the citizens another option," challenger Ruiz told Politico. "I'll say this. I had the name first." [Politico, 9/5/2019] Most competent criminal Yusuke Taniguchi, 34, a shop- ping mall clerk in Koto City, Japan, was arrested earlier this year for using his superpower — a photographic memory — for apparent evil. According to police, Taniguchi was able to memorize more than 1,300 num- bers from credit cards as people used them at his shop register, SoraNews reported. He admitted to investigators that he would remember the name, card num- ber, expiration date and security code and then write the infor- mation down as the customer walked away, later using the accounts to make online pur- chases of items he would then sell. Police, who tracked him to his address by using orders for two expensive handbags, found a notebook with hundreds of accounts listed. [SoraNews, 9/7/2019] "" Question: Which new fall season shows are on your must-watch list? —Amy Matt Roush: Let me use this question as an opportunity to guide you toward TV Guide Magazine's classic Fall Pre- view issue (currently on sale), which runs down the new series premier- ing on network, cable and streaming in the next months. In my column, I provide an overview of the new shows — focusing on the characters — that have jumped out at me so far. While I'm sure there are even more discov- eries to come, my short list includes Walton Goggins' surprisingly charm- ing star turn in the CBS comedy "e Unicorn," Cobie Smulders' tough gal in "Stumptown" for ABC, Bradley Whitford pulling a curmudgeonly Mr. Holland in NBC's delightful "Perfect Harmony," and I'm very intrigued by CBS's big swing in supernatural mys- tery with "Evil," from the creators of "e Good Wife." (Michael Emerson oozes evil as that show's antagonist.) In streaming, there's a nifty Paul Rudd double act in the cloning fantasy- comedy "Living With Yourself" on Netflix, Amazon's star-driven anthol- ogy "Modern Love," and the Apple TV+ behind-the-scenes TV drama e Morning Show. Premium cable high- lights include HBO's bold reinterpre- tation of Watchmen and an adaptation of the fantasy. "His Dark Materials," and Forest Whitaker as a 1960s mob boss in "Godfather of Harlem" for Epix.
