Tonight's Crazy Story
A break-up must have been too much for one Houston woman to deal with. She responded by egging her ex-boyfriend's house, breaking windows with a sword and a tire iron, e-mailing him 712 times and calling him over 1000 times. And then to top it off, she started a blog to document everything she did to her ex.
Tonight's Final Five:
The Occupy Wall Street protesters are hurting small businesses in Wall Street's residential areas more than the corporations they are protesting. Avik Roy, an author and Wall Street resident, explains.
After an administration that has led an unprecedented expansion of federal powers in multiple areas, the Republicans need to nominate a candidate who will lead a reform to decrease the size of government. A Wall Street Journal editorial explains why Mitt Romney may not be ready--or possibly even willing--to lead that reform.
Taking a break...
To laugh a little
"There was a truck filled with President Obama's teleprompters and it went missing. Meanwhile Joe Biden’s teleprompter shot itself."

Now Back to The Final Five
John Hayward explains why it's not just the Republicans blocking Obama's jobs plan in the Senate. If the bill is actually so good that it needs to be passed "right away," shouldn't it at least be able to pass the Democratic-controlled Senate?
"Generation O" turned out in 2008 to vote for Obama, but they are now finding out that the change he proposed is leaving them jobless and in debt. Diana Furchtgott-Roth explains why Obama's support of corporations, unions, and more government has destroyed the job opportunities for the younger generation.
#1) Raising Cain
I have been a critic of Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan not because it is an awful plan but because there are better ways to reform taxes. Wayne Allyn Root explains why 0-15-0 might be a better plan.
Tomorrow in History: October 22
October 22, 1879 - Thomas Edison tests the first practical incandescent light bulb with a carbonized thread filament. The bulb lasted 13 1/2 hours before burning out. (Fortunately, modern light bulbs last a little longer.)
Food For Thought - A Bedtime Snack
"Each individual of the society has a right to be protected by it in the enjoyment of his life, liberty, and property, according to standing laws. He is obliged, consequently, to contribute his share to the expense of this protection; and to give his personal service, or an equivalent, when necessary. But no part of the property of any individual can, with justice, be taken from him, or applied to public uses, without his own consent, or that of the representative body of the people. In fine, the people of this commonwealth are not controllable by any other laws than those to which their constitutional representative body have given their consent."
