WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM FEBRUARY 3-9, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Awesome Didn't get what you wanted for Christmas? The North Carolina Department of Transportation put nine vintage train cars up for auc- tion on Dec. 15 that it purchased from the Ringling Bros. and Bar- num & Bailey Circus after it ceased operation in 2017, the Raleigh News & Observer reported. NCDOT bought the cars for $383,000 to re- furbish for use between Raleigh and Charlotte, but federal grants have enabled the department to buy new cars instead. "These cars have a great and amazing history," said Ja- son Orthner, director of the NCDOT rail division. Surprise Andrea Ellis of East Moline, Il- linois, was wrapping presents on Dec. 19 when she opened a pack- age of garden flags she intended to give her grandmother and noticed something extra in the bottom of the padded envelope. It turned out to be a biohazard bag contain- ing a Virginia woman's COVID-19 test. Ellis told the Quad City Times that when she failed to reach the woman, she called police, who sent an officer to retrieve it, but 15 min- utes later, he returned with the bag, saying, "I was told to bring it back to you." A representative of the Rock Island County Health Department picked up the sample the next day and will try to return it to the Virgin- ia patient. Ellis has also heard from a vice president at Kohl's, where she bought the flags, who said the com- pany is working hard to find out what happened and prevent it from happening again. Great art French artist Gaetan Marron pre- sented a new performance piece in December titled "Non-Essential," in which he locked himself for 10 days inside a clear Plexiglas cube at a shopping mall in Marseille. Euronews reported the artist de- scribed his work as an attempt to "bring culture, which clearly saved us during this lockdown, back to the center of the subject." The cube, large enough for Marron to stand up in, also contained a few nones- sential items, including a TV and coffee machine; Marron left the cube to use the restroom. "I have the feeling that ... we miss what is really the real human contact ... we have really lost social links in this period," Marron said. Question: I was wondering if you could provide some insight into why Aidy Bryant seems to be missing in action on "Satur- day Night Live?" — MJ Matt Roush: Aidy Bryant hasn't been seen since the start of the season because she's been far away from New York City, working in Portland, Ore., on the third season of her Hulu comedy "Shrill," on which pro- duction this year was delayed until fall, like so many others, by the pandemic. She's still in SNL's opening credits, and when she's free to return, she'll be back. To submit questions to TV Crit- ic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider. com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to HBO for investing in "Industry." Like a "Grey's Anat- omy" for the finance crowd, this high-adrenaline drama about a group of cutthroat newbies (including Myha'la Herrold and Harry Lawtey) navigating their first year at a London banking firm is hot- ter than a blue chip stock and was just picked up for Season 2. Bottom line: It's time to rally around this one. Cheers to Kelly Clarkson, Drew Barrymore and Tamron Hall for keeping us company. Sassy, earthy and honest, the lovable trinity of talk-show hosts have become the best kind of daytime distraction for so many folks in need of some uplifting interaction while working from home. Jeers to "Big Sky" for becom- ing a big snooze. After a killer pilot that dared to off top-billed star Ryan Phillippe, the only real mystery since then has been how many times the ABC drama's sex- trafficking plot will be used to show female characters being abducted, exploited, attacked or pitted against one another.
