Ripping the Headlines Today, 9/5/23

Making fun of the headlines today, so you don’t have to

The news, even that about American Airlines, doesn’t need to be complicated and confusing; that’s what any new release from Microsoft is for.

Really all you need to do is follow one simple rule: barely pay attention and jump to conclusions. So, here are some headlines today and my first thoughts:
