Brad's morning edition
Saturday night there was a Supermoon. In a sign of the times, I believe the moon is juicing.
To put it in perspective, the moon was about half the size of the typical hat in the grandstand at the Kentucky Derby.
After the Sunday morning storms, 10,000 homes in the metro area were without power. OPPD graciously announced that until all the power was restored, it wouldn't raise the rates of the affected homes once.
The Gretna area was hard hit. A group of Gretna residents actually formed a human chain to help a city official get to Victoria's Secret.
The U.S. unemployment rate has dropped to 8.1 percent largely due to people who gave up looking for jobs. If enough Americans give up to drive unemployment down to 7 percent, President Obama could have reelection in the bag.
On CBS This Morning, Ted Nugent rambled on and then cursed at a CBS reporter. Wait a second — rambling, followed by cursing; I think Nugent just made another presidential endorsement.
Nugent appeared so angry at one point, CBS had to bring in Alec Baldwin to translate.
Nugent is so angry, the CBS logo is now a black eye.
U.S. Secret Service agents may get chaperones. If so, you'll have a group of well-dressed young men accompanied by chaperones. Technically, this would be called "a prom."
Joe The Plumber showed up at the White House to see President Obama, but was turned away. Obama said he's willing to meet with Joe The Plumber, he just has to wait his turn. And at the moment, he's right after Ted Nugent.
Obama officially kicks off his re-election campaign Monday with an appearance at Ohio St. University expected to draw about 12,000 people. Obama should be feeling pretty good till someone points out that the Ohio St. spring game can draw close to 90,000.
The arena at Ohio St. holds about 20,000. Officials didn't have the heart to tell Obama that it sold out for the basketball game against Maryland-Eastern Shore.
Obama should receive a huge ovation from the Ohio St. crowd, mostly just because he's running against a guy from Michigan.
The National Christmas Tree, planted near the White House, has died. President Obama said he'll have no comment until he thinks of a way to blame Mitt Romney or the Bush Administration.
It's believed the National Christmas Tree died from shock after seeing the April jobs report.
The saddest thing about the death of the National Christmas Tree was watching Al Gore try to perform CPR.
The National Christmas Tree is dead. Let's hope no Alabama football fans are involved in this one.
On Sunday, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates were at Regency Court. Both men left when they realized they couldn't afford anything at Regency Court.
The 2012 Berkshire meeting has ended. However, The World-Herald will continue offering extensive coverage of Warren Buffett with our new "Buffett Cam" — a miniature camera attached to Mr. Buffett's eyeglasses so we can track his activities 24/7.
Shareholders from China attended the Berkshire meetings. After being exposed to Omaha taxes and parking fines, the Chinese visitors decided capitalism is overrated
To mark the last day that students can drop classes without it showing up on their record, M.I.T. students pushed an upright piano out a 4th story window. I haven't seen an upright piano flying out a 4th story window since I was 8 and my recital teacher threw in the towel.
A man has designed a motorized toilet that goes 46 mph. The next time your wife says you wasted your weekend, show her this story.
The Lincoln Marathon was held Sunday. It's one of the flattest marathons in the world. The toughest part of the course is the feared "Heartbreak Knoll."
The Nebraska baseball team played at Indiana for the first time in 106 years. At UNL, that was approximately 89 tuition increases ago.
Amare Stoudemire punched a glass enclosure after the Knicks lost to the Miami Heat. Rumor has it that during the 4th quarter of an NBA Finals game LeBron James once tried to punch a fire extinguisher and missed.
The Nebraska basketball team signed 7-foot-1 Serbian center Sergei Vucetic. Coach Tim Miles was beaming ear-to-ear. Actually, that doesn't tell us much since Miles hasn't stopped beaming ear-to-ear since 1987.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is asking for player input on whether to keep the Pro Bowl. I'm not sure that's a good idea. You leave it up to players and the Pro Bowl will be replaced by a "Tweet-a-thon."
Our long, national nightmare is over — Iowans have agreed on a new Cy-Hawk Trophy. The old Cy-Hawk will be placed atop the Iowa State Capitol building to keep pigeons away.
