WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JANUARY 6-12, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication It's Come to This China's Civil Aviation Adminis- tration issued updated COVID-19 safety guidelines encouraging flight crews to wear diapers and avoid airplane lavatories. Titled "Techni- cal Guidelines for Epidemic Preven- tion and Control for Airlines," the document included information on wearing masks and other personal protective equipment and also stat- ed, "It is recommended that cabin crew members wear disposable dia- pers and avoid using the lavatories barring special circumstances to avoid infection risks," United Press International reported. Suspicions Confirmed Kaleb Kleiss was arrested in Clearwater, Florida, after a witness saw him driving with the barrel of an AR-15 rifle sticking out the driv- er's side window of his 2016 Volk- swagen, The Smoking Gun reported. Kleiss, who was intoxicated, accord- ing to arrest affidavits, told officers he carries the gun for self-defense because he's "seen crazy stuff since moving to Florida." When police tracked him down, Kleiss was standing next to his car with the weapon "displayed carelessly ... on the dashboard ... in plain view ..." police said, and the gun was "load- ed with a full magazine and a round in the chamber." Kleiss was charged with drunk driving and improper exhibition of a dangerous weapon. Bad Dog An unnamed "pug-like" dog was found at the wheel of a family's van after it plummeted into a ditch in North Grenville, Ottawa. The Ot- tawa Citizen reported that police determined the owners had left the dog in the running car, and it probably bumped the gear shift into reverse, causing the van to slowly back up as the driver ran alongside, trying to get in. "Of course, the dog wasn't charged," said Grenville County police Sgt. Anne Collins. Awesome! French chef Benoit Bruel struck a blow for French cuisine by cap- turing the Guinness World Record for most varieties of cheese on a pizza with 254 cheeses, United Press International reported. Guinness posted a video of Bruel making and then enjoying the pizza, not- ing also that "Benoit took this as a patriotic challenge, as one of the things France is most famous for is its cheeses." Question: I am still incredibly bummed that ABC canceled "Stumptown." Is it gone for good? — Pete Matt Roush: I've seen no up- dates since the proverbial "be- ing shopped around" reports at the time of cancellation. e longer time passes and actors and producers move on to new projects, the less likely are the odds of a rescue. Never say never, but for now, consider "Stumptown" truly canceled. And yes, I'm bummed, too. (But even more so to have it con- firmed that the new version of "One Day at a Time" appears to have finally run out of lifelines.) To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "e Mandalorian" for delivering more than just the adorable Baby Yoda. With no new movies on the horizon, the rollicking space Western from Disney+ has handily filled the Sarlacc-size gap in our lives with two seasons of cinematic action, clever links to the Star Wars canon and (nonedible!) Easter eggs aplenty. Cheers to "is Is Us" for of- fering an alternative take with "What if Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) didn't die?" is is exactly what the NBC show is all about : giv- ing us different perspectives and all kinds of surprises. Jeers to "e Conners" for bumming us out. ere's a fine line between slice-of-life com- edy and cutting too close to the bone. And the ABC sitcom's heavy focus on the family's money woes — which drove a despondent, uninsured Dan to declare his death wouldn't even benefit his kids — reflects a harsh reality almost too painful to laugh at.
