It's Presidents' Day
There's a reason the bank is closed, your kid is at home, and the mail hasn't arrived... It's Presidents' Day.

"I got the hottest girl in the game pick in' my brain," he tweeted on Feb. 15.

Miranda Barbour, 19, stunned police when she told the Daily Item, a small newspaper in Sunbury, Pa., that she had been killing people since she was 13 as part of a Satanic cult. The claim, if true, would make her a rare female serial killer.
