WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MARCH 11-17, 2020 UCW 27 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication The continuing crisis A rider on the New York City subway employed a novel way of protecting his personal space on Feb. 7, Fox News re- ported. The seated passenger removed a bottle of ketchup from his bag and squirted a squiggly perimeter on the floor around his seat, apparently hoping to keep fellow straphangers away. Twit- ter erupted with funny comments after one user posted a photo: "Gotta protect yourself from the mustard demons they can't cross the barrier" and "What brand of ketchup though?" New York City Transit got a taste of the problem and promised to clean it up right away. Anger management Ypsilanti, Michigan, police were called to an apartment complex on Jan. 16, where they found a 23-year-old man smoking a cigarette and press- ing a bloody towel to his side, MLive reported. The man told officers his partner, 28-year-old Neil Patrick Wa- sinski, known as Nalla and referred to as "she" in court records, attacked him with a 21-inch samurai sword because he didn't buy her any marijuana. The attack resulted in multiple stab wounds to the man's arm and torso, and one of his lungs collapsed, according to police. Tracked down at her apartment, Wasin- ski told police to "please go away" and later claimed to have no memory of the incident. Police found a blood-stained 21-inch katana on Wasinski's bedroom floor, according to their report, and she was charged with assault and resist- ing arrest. It's a mystery The Smith family of Lockport, Illinois, has a perplexing extra feature in their house that has occasionally kept the family up at night for about six years: "There are voices in the wall, and I don't know what it is," 9-year-old Brianna Smith told WLS music and talk radio emanate from the walls in Brianna's room in the middle of the night, but the family can't figure out why. There are no speakers in the walls, Brianna's father, Richard, said, and attempts by police to uncover the source were unsuccessful. The Federal Communications Com- mission couldn't help either. Richard Smith believes something in the wall is receiving a signal from one of the six radio towers near the home, but an engineer sent to the home from one of the stations told him: "I got to be honest with you, I don't know what is acting as a speaker." The Smiths have been advised to hire an engineer to pinpoint the signal and block it, but in the meantime, Brianna falls asleep in her parents' room. Question: I just finished watching "Sandi- ton" on Masterpiece, which I loved all the way up to its incomplete end. Is it really possible there may not be a second season of this delightful series? [Spoiler Alert] And that we might never see the two romantic lead characters of Charlotte and Sidney, who were so cruelly separated by fate and circumstance in the final episode, be re- united? is is outrageous! Have we really seen the last of "Sanditon?" — Janet Matt Roush: For now, I'm sorry to say, that's all he wrote — "he" being Andrew Davies, who adapted and extended the unfinished novel by Jane Austen, who died before she could write very much of the story at all. As we have reported, the original broadcaster, England's ITV, opted not to continue with a second season when ratings didn't live up to expectations. And this happened before the Masterpiece run even began in Janu- ary. When I binge-watched the series a few months ago to write my enthusiastic review, I was similarly chagrined to real- ize the story was going to stop so abruptly on this unhappy note. Read between the lines, however, and there is hope from the series' producers that because "Sanditon" made a splash in the U.S. that there may be a way to keep the show going. Let's hope so. But at the moment, until there is new news, it's very much in limbo. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "A Million Little ings" for a giant, heartbreaking twist. No, not Eric (Jason Ritter) lying to Maggie (Allison Miller) about having received her dead bro's ticker. We mean Marcia Gay Harden's tear-inducing turn as the mother who abandoned Gary (James Roday) for her acting career. Now, so much of his horrible behavior is starting to make sense! Jeers to "e Walking Dead" for gross misconduct. Turns out the only thing more stomach-turning than a decom- posed zombie is the image of Alpha (Samantha Morton) getting nasty with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) wearing nothing but the skin of someone else's face. Let's leave the messed up masks to Fox's singing shows, OK? ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 is week should begin w ith seemingly little activ it y, Aries.
