The saddest bank robbery story ever. A crazy-weird motorcycle crash. And the Manning boys get a new TV “show.”

This has to be one of the saddest things I’ve heard this year.
A 59-year-old man in North Carolina named James Verone walked into a bank and asked the teller to give him a dollar, and said it was a robbery. He had no gun. He just wanted to be arrested and taken to jail.

Where he could receive health care. Verone had several serious medical problems, and was uninsured. And though he’d never been in trouble with the law before, he was desperate, and figured this was the only way he could get seen by a doctor and be able to pay for it.

What does that say about us as a country? And how in the WORLD can anyone hear this man’s story, and be against universal health care?

**This might be the strangest motorcycle crash I’ve ever seen. Watch what happens when the two bikes collide in the middle of a race, and watch the helplessness of the poor guy trying to get his bike back. Just bizarre:

**Finally, just about any commercial Peyton Manning does amuses me. I still love the “Cut That Meat” ad from a few years ago.

Eli Manning isn’t as funny, but he was great in this: A trailer for a new (fake) show called “Football Cops.”
