(CNN)"Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced on Wednesday that her reelection campaign raised an astonishing $3.2 million in the Georgia Republican's first three months in office, after reports detailed her embrace of conspiracy theories and support for executing prominent Democratic politicians."

There's been a lot of talk over the last 2 or 3 years about how the size of campaign war chests isn't the indicator that it used to be, if that's any comfort.

You know you want to hear spiderweb music (I wonder what Roussel might have made of this - composer of Le Festin de l'araignée)?

Leben heißt nicht zu warten, bis der Sturm vorbeizieht, sondern lernen, im Regen zu tanzen.

When animal welfare officers received a report of an unusual animal lurking in a tree in the Polish city of Krakow, they were not sure what to expect.
"People aren't opening their windows because they're afraid it will go into their house," the woman reportedly said.
But a visit to the area showed the creature in question was not a bird, or even a reptile - but a croissant.

Well how are people in Krakow supposed to know what a croissant looks like? ::)
