WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM OCTOBER 23-29, 2019 UCW 31 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Unintended consequences An unidentified man in Phoe- nix, Arizona, became angry at his upstairs neighbors for mak- ing too much noise on Oct. 6. He first tried banging on their door around 11:20 p.m., but then returned to his apartment and fired several shots into his ceil- ing — one of which apparently ricocheted and hit him in the face, according to the Arizona Re- public. Although no one else was injured, the shooter was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition. Oops! Homeowner Linda Taylor-Whitt of Lynwood, Illinois, and her fam- ily returned home from a birthday dinner on Oct. 5 to find "a wheel coming through my washroom ceiling" in an upstairs bathroom. Taylor-Whitt, who lives about a mile from Lansing Municipal Air- port, told the Chicago Tribune she "didn't know what kind of wheel it was at first. I guessed it was an airplane wheel," she said. But it was from a helicopter, according to Amy Summers of SummerSkyz Inc., a helicopter flight school in Lansing. When Summers heard about the incident, she knew she'd found the ground-handling wheel she'd been missing, and called Taylor-Whitt to apologize. The wheel had apparently been left on one of the company's he- licopters during flight and fell off. Taylor-Whitt was relieved the damage wasn't worse: "I am glad — thank you, Lord — that it was a wheel instead of a plane because it could've been so bad." Awesome! Open your wallet: If you have enough scratch, you can buy a customized pair of Nike Air Max 97s dubbed "Jesus Shoes" from a Brooklyn, New York, company called MSCHF. Introduced online Oct. 8, the shoes have 60ccs of holy water from the Jordan River injected into the soles "so you can literally walk on water," noted Cosmopolitan, a crucifix in the laces, red insoles harkening to Vatican traditions, and a Matthew 14:25 inscription. They are also scented with frankincense and sport a godly white and light blue colorway. The Jesus Shoes origi- nally sold for $1,425, but are now fetching anywhere from $2,000 to upwards of $11,000. Question: "Dancing with the Stars" excludes the West coast from voting. Why should I watch a show that totally dismisses us viewers? As for the new set, the focus should be on the dancers, not a bunch of glitz. —Ricki Matt Roush : But where would "Dancing with the Stars" be with- out glitz? That said, you have a legitimate complaint. It does seem counterintuitive for a com- petition show based on audience participation to exclude such a large portion of the American public. Although reading the fine print in ABC's press releases, live voting on Mondays is available to fans in all time zones during the 8-10 p.m./ET hours (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text). So theoretically, you could vote for a favorite team — from the week before, not the live show, obvi- ously To submit questions to T V Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "The Unicorn" for be- ing a horse of a different color for Walton Goggins.
