Shortcuts: Monday 7/6

Shortcuts are hand-picked bits of news, commentary and info from around the city, the region and even from beyond the state line.

Here are today’s Shortcuts:

Socks’ ashes scattered
Do you remember President Clinton’s cat, Socks? It was put to sleep in February and made tons of headlines. Socks is back in the news again but this time, things aren’t as timely. Some of Socks’ remains were transported back to Arkansas and sprinkled in a garden at the Governor’s Mansion back in March of this year. Four months later, it’s news.

Kitty litter facial mask
Speaking of cats, KATV’s Good Morning Arkansas Blog suggests mixing cat litter and water together and then smearing it on your face for a nice “spa effect.” Who’s in?


Why did Palin resign?
The New York Times reports that it’s likely because of legal bills.

Tiger & Obama
Tiger Woods wants to play golf with Barrack Obama one day. In other news, I would like to play Call of Duty 4 against either of them. Winner gets a million bucks.
