WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM NOVEMBER 13-19, 2019 UCW 27 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Putting off the inevitable Convicted bank robber and career criminal Michael Jauernik, 71, received a sentence of more than 12 years in prison in Germany on Oct. 7, but managed to stall his incarceration by delivering a five-day-long closing state- ment that included anecdotes about his career in crime and details about his fitness routine. Twenty hours into the soliloquy, the judge finally cut him off, saying she wished she had done so earlier in light of his "excessive digres- sions," The Guardian reported. Jau- ernik, who wore sunglasses throughout his trial, told the court, "I am more in- telligent and clever than any employee of the criminal police agency, that much is sure." Precocious pet Archie, a French bulldog/Boston ter- rier mix who lives in Melbourne, Aus- tralia, with his human, Dee Borkowski, is in the doghouse after a fiery event on Oct. 16. As Borkowski watched Archie via her home security camera, he con- tentedly lounged on the couch, chew- ing on a cigarette lighter. Suddenly, United Press International reported, the lighter ignited, and her couch burst into flames. Borkowski called the fire department, and the 10-month-old puppy escaped unhurt, although her apartment suffered thousands of dol- lars of damage. Borkowski has changed Archie's Instagram handle to "Archie the Arsonist." Compelling explanation An unnamed resident of the Wilson Lane apartments in Elkins, West Vir- ginia, told police she left her home for a few minutes on Oct. 18, returning a short time later to find a neighbor, Ronald L. Thorne Jr., 52, "standing in her apartment eating her lasagna from the refrigerator." He went on to tell her he "just wanted to talk and maybe more," and then he returned to his own apartment, carrying the lasagna and one of her forks, according to the police report. The Inter-Mountain reports the woman also told Randolph County Sheriff's officers that her home had been ransacked and $20 was missing from her purse. When officers con- fronted Thorne, he told them he "had been sleepwalking and had woke up standing in his neighbor's apartment," the complaint stated. The officers also noticed a pan of lasagna on his table, and Thorne told them "she could have it back." Thorne was arrested and charged with burglary; as he was being processed, a $20 bill was found in his wallet. Question: Can Gerald McRaney be- come a regular on "NCIS: Los Ange- les?" His character and Hetty would be very entertaining. —Bonnie Matt Roush: By my count, Gerald McRaney has appeared on "NCIS: LA" as Retired Navy Admiral Hol- lace Kilbride at least five times over the years, so he's clearly a fa- vored recurring guest star, and for now, that seems to be the extent of his involvement. There's no show he doesn't make better so I imag- ine he'd be welcomed back any time. But I haven't seen anything to suggest that the producers are looking to expand the core cast, so you're probably going to have to settle for enjoying him next time he returns. I agree, though, that an episode centered on Hollace and Hetty would be great. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Nancy Drew" for solv- ing the mystery of how to make a nearly 90-year-old icon relevant. By casting the super-likable Ken- nedy McMann as our new teen sleuth and adding a wicked super- natural angle, The CW's freshman thriller is sexy, scary and so wor- thy of its beloved literary roots. Cheers to "American Horror Sto- ry" for making a popular casting decision. As 1984's hilarious, yet homicidal summer-camp owner, Leslie Grossman has been slaying it with even more gusto than when she was stealing every scene as de- mented cheerleader Mary Cherry in "AHS" creator Ryan Murphy's 1999-2001 WB comedy. Jeers to a streaming-service bait and switch With "Search Party" moving from TBS to HBO Max for its next two seasons, fans of Alia Shawkat's hipster comedy who are already paying for cable will have to cough up even more if they want to find out what happens next. Not cool. ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you may have to make your own op- portunities rather than waiting for some to fall in your lap. Only then can you prove to others what youÕre worth.
