WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM APRIL 21-27, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Compelling Explanation Deputies in Brevard County, Florida, clocked Charles Thomas, 65, of Malabar, going over 100 mph on his motorcycle and weaving in and out of traffic on March 31, according to an arrest report. When they finally caught up with him, Thomas reas- sured them by saying "he is trained to drive like that," WKMG-TV reported. He was charged with reckless driving. Cliche Come to Life Around 4:15 a.m. on March 24, an unidentified resident of Laurium, Michigan, woke to find a gun pointed at his head, WLUC-TV reported. Lau- rium Police said Warren Meyers, 52, of Calumet, Michigan, allegedly de- manded the homeowner give him his two cats. The "cat burglar" left with one cat and was later apprehended, along with the gun he used, said au- thorities. He was arraigned on March 29 in Houghton County Court; the fate of the stolen cat is unknown. Dont Eat That! Among the treasures discovered at Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk, England, is a 121-year-old chocolate bar, still in its tin, commissioned by Queen Vic- toria for troops fighting in the Second Boer War in South Africa, Reuters reported on March 31. Oxburgh was the ancestral home of the Bedingfeld family for 500 years, and one of them, Sir Henry Edward Paston-Bedingfeld, fought in that war; the chocolate bar was discovered in his helmet case. "Although you wouldn't want it as your Easter treat," mused Anna For- rest, cultural heritage curator at Brit- ain's National Trust, "it is still com- plete and a remarkable find." On the lid, a message is inscribed in Queen Victoria's handwriting: "I wish you a happy new year." Can't Help Herself Two weeks after a plea deal fell through in connection with a 2019 at- tempt to stowaway on a flight at Chi- cago's O'Hare International Airport, Marilyn Hartman, 69, was arrested and charged with trespassing March 16 as she attempted to sneak onto another flight at O'Hare, the Associ- ated Press reported. At the time of her 2019 arrest, Hartman was on proba- tion after having bypassed security in January 2018 and boarded a flight from Chicago to London without a ticket. The Cook County Sheriff's Department says it plans to seek a felony escape charge for Hartman. Question: Disappointing to hear of the end of "NCIS: New Orleans." It re- mains my favorite. I suspect too many cast changes did not help. Any chance it will migrate to another network? — Gary J Matt Roush: e "NCIS" franchise is made by and for CBS. ese aren't the sort of shows that get snapped up by rivals. Maybe if there was in- terest in producing more episodes for streaming on Paramount+, that would be the only lifeline. But as we've explained earlier in this space, CBS is known for jettisoning its crime dramas after a certain number of years (often seven) to keep re- freshing the lineup. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to to America Ferrera for clocking back in to "Superstore." While it was still a total bummer to say goodbye to the crew of NBC's delightful retail comedy after six seasons, the fact that former series regular Ferrera came back as sales- person turned exec Amy Sosa for the March 25 series finale left us, well, on Cloud 9. Jeers to "e Real World Home- coming: New York" for hitting too close to home. From returning to the loft to revisiting old fights, the Paramount+ reunion of the origi- nal seven strangers who launched MTV's cinema vérité hit nearly 30 years ago is a dream — except for the COVID-19 infection that kept Eric from moving in with Norman, An- dre, Julie, Becky, Heather and Kevin. at part of the real world remains a nightmare. Jeers to "Riverdale" for trading cheers for leers. We will accept the seven-year time jump and even Jughead's icky mustache. But we cry foul at the March 24th football game that saw cheerleading coach Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) per- forming a less-than-ladylike routine to Lady Gaga's "Stupid Love" — in front of a crowd of parents! e fasci- nating Petsch deserves better.
