WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MARCH 4 -10, 2020 UCW 27 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication The smell test Police in Speyer, Germany, gave chase after they were passed by a car driving at high speed with its lights off on Feb. 14. The suspect, a 26-year-old man, pulled over and ran from the car, leaving a trail of scent that was so distinct officers said they were able to follow it from the car to the man, who was hiding behind a hedge. "Due to the cloud of perfume that was detected inside the car and on the man," police said, "it was possible to identify him as the driver," the Associ- ated Press reported. His breath didn't smell so good, though: He was far over the alcohol limit. Wait, what? The woman who attempted to board an airplane with her emotional support peacock made headlines, but in Port St. Lucie, Florida, one man is questioning why his particular sup- port item has been banned from the dialysis center where he takes treat- ments three times a week. Nelson Gibson first brought an 8-by-10-inch photo of President Donald J. Trump to comfort him as he endured the 3 1/2-hour treatments, then exchanged that for a small cardboard cutout of himself standing next to a Trump photo. When he next arrived with a life-size cutout of the president, no one complained, Gibson told WPBF, but on Feb. 11, "they told me it was too much and it wasn't a rally. It just feels like bringing something from home to make you comfortable," Gibson said, noting that others bring items, including one woman who pops bubble wrap during the entire treatment. "That's very nerve-wrack- ing," he said. It's unclear whether Gibson will return to the center for treatments. Extreme measures Tensions are running high in China, where the coronavirus has affected thousands of people and sparked instances of panic- buying. AFP reports that super- markets have experienced runs on staples such as rice and pasta, but in Hong Kong, a gang of men wielding knives attacked a deliv- ery driver in Mong Kok on Feb. 17, making off with hundreds of rolls of toilet paper worth about $130. Police said the missing rolls were recovered, and two suspects were arrested. Locals seemed baffled, with one woman telling a TV sta- tion, "I'd steal face masks, but not toilet roll." Question: e "Criminal Minds" finale was well done except for one thing. If Pe- nelope was being highlighted, why didn't Shemar Moore pop in? Instead of being a good ending, it could have been great! — P. Yates, Colorado Matt Roush: According to our post-finale interview with "Criminal Minds'" show- runner, they would have liked nothing better than to have Shemar Moore return as Morgan for just such a farewell mo- ment. But he's otherwise engaged on "S.W.A.T." and, according to Erica Messer, "we weren't able to pull that off." A pity for fans, but it truly is difficult to borrow ac- tors from ongoing series. Question: What's your take on Fox's "Deputy?" We are especially enjoying the relationship between the chief and his driver, Bishop. — Gwen Matt Roush: I like Stephen Dorff as the deputy and agree that his relationship with Bishop (Bex Taylor-Klaus) is one of the most distinctive aspects of an other- wise generic (to me) police drama. e episodes I watched over the first month or so of the series seemed to keep hitting the same beats, which is how procedurals work but which also tends to cause me to lose interest. I'm a bit more intrigued by Edie Falco as another L.A. law enforce- ment figure, the outsider police chief they call Tommy on CBS, also on ursdays. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Cheer" for giving us real squad goals. Netflix's fascinating docu- series about Texas' Navarro cheerlead- ing team flips the script on what most folks think about pom-pom shakers (like Kassidy Warnol) to show just how focused, fit and fierce these undeniable athletes truly are. Jeers to the Oscars for going hostless. Again. We get it — it's a thankless job and everyone is afraid to joke for fear of offending the audience. But somebody needs to keep it running smoothly. Otherwise, viewers end up wondering why Eminem is performing a song from 2002, how many categories are left and whether we can hope to see Steve Mar- tin and Chris Rock come out again.
