All the news that's fit to type

I've decided to give my lj a little feature to make it slightly less boring. I took a couple of years of Journalism in high school and the urge to report has never really gone away. So, I'll be adding news snippets that interest/involve me.

Latest News
Personal: Not much to say. I am working on an HPfic. More about my obsessions later.

Family: Mark and Patty still aren't specific about when they want to get married beyond saying they want the date to be sometime next month.

Local: The College World Series it still going on, with games 11 and 12, I believe, today. This has to be Omaha's main tourist event. The main tourist attraction in Nebraska, the Henry Doorly Zoo, is in Omaha, right next to Rosenblatt Stadium, where the CWS is currently going on. Coincidence?

National: There's a riot going on in Benton Harbor, Michigan. The residents are complaining about police harassment. Does that sound familiar to anyone else?

International: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix comes out in a little over 2 days and 13 hours, according to the-leaky-cauldron.org. I can't wait, how 'bout you?

You live in Omaha?
I am suddenly jealous. Very jealous. Having gone to Mississippi State and discovered college baseball (we *should* have been in Omaha this year *&%$^*!) while I was there has done this to me. Do you catch any of the games, or is it more of an inconvience? Just curious, I've never been. It's on the list of things to do.

Re: You live in Omaha?
I've never been to a CWS game, but I did go to an Omaha Royals game. They're our minor league team that plays at Rosenblatt Stadium. (Their mascot is a lion -- Casey at the Blatt.) CWS tickets are really hard to come by, but sometimes business around here will offer free tickets to their employees. I'd like to go sometime, but the weather here during the CWS is always either blistering or raining. This year, we're having a little of both.
