Headlines you're waiting for?

Asked by Jeruba (50606points) June 23rd, 2016

Hey, it works!
 

Here’s a headline I’d pay money to see:

In a Stunning Move, GOP Nominates Sanders

Note: Yes, I definitely made this up. Relax. This is not a real news story.

What headlines would you hold your breath for, in these weirder-than-ever times?

“Sentencing Hearing Set…for Psychiatrist Convicted of Sexual Abuse”

This one really did happen.

Many, many years ago, I heard the subject of this headline, a psychiatrist with a swanky practice in Montgomery County MD, say that “everyone likes young flesh” while accusing my late father of having molested me (absurd and untrue). My own flesh crawled in revulsion.

I gave very serious thought to filing a complaint with the state licensing board, going as far as to hire legal counsel. I was advised to do nothing. At the time, he was a respected physician, and my own evidence was anecdotal at best. I would have achieved nothing and been made to look ridiculous.

Yes, this man is now a convicted and registered sex offender with a revoked license. I deeply regret that I couldn’t do anything all those years ago, and that an underage girl was recently harmed by him. But, my sense of vindication and schadenfreude can’t be adequately described. I hate to think about how many people were hurt along the way, but the guy’s finally out of business.

@Pandora That’s always been the case, the party needs that time to elect a new leader, tantamount to a period of due diligence.

I am old enough to have seen a lot of things happen, from the assassination of a president, to the moon landing, to an impeachment, to home computers.
I’d still like to see rocket packs and flying cars, and a constitutional convention.

Clinton Muy Macho
Hillary Clinton, hoping not to be outdone by Donald Trump’s recent display of toughness, said today, “As president, not only will I not sit down to pee, but I will stand while defecating and I will defecate wherever and whenever I please, like a goat.”

Trump Walks Away From Presidential Race: Trump announces it was all a lark, based on a $1 bet he’d made with Murdoch on a DC golf course. Never really interested in Presidency. Explains that it was fun while it lasted and became an object lesson to America on what a bunch of idiots they are and how their system is gamed.

Trump rumored to have bought an island for retirement somewhere in South Pacific.
