MORNING HEADLINES: YouTube Oscar, a new Ice Age

Posted on Thu, Dec 30, 2010 at 9:53 AM

Snow drunk — Yesterday, Spokane was named the 21st drunkest city in all of America. And the a local drunk dude pulling his kids on sleds behind an ATV crashed them into a parked police car, sending them to the hospital. Coincidence? I think not. Ramon Noggles, the dad, was arrested and taken to jail. (SR)

Gondola hero — They're not just for your visiting family, anymore, because the gondolas are totally great for rescuing people that have fallen in the icy depths of the Spokane River. (KXLY)

The Big Freeze — All that snow that fell yesterday is expected to stick around forever, heralding a new ice age that should cover the Inland Northwest under a mile of ice and slow moving glaciers. Giant marmots with tusks will rule this part of the world and any human that survives will lead a short, brutish existence and probably die before the age of 30. At least, that's how cold it feels today. At least it's sunny. (KREM) 

I'd like to thank the academy, and iMovie — Roger Ebert has declared a YouTube video to be Oscar worthy. Is it?
