Royal hook

Low ratings, lower IQ: After just four episiodes were aired, Fox has canceled “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry,'” a reality show in which women competed for the affections of someone who looks a bit like Prince Harry, on account of low ratings and sky-high idiocy.

A Siri for pizza: Domino's is introducing an app function that will let customers place orders by speaking with a computer-generated voice called “Dom.”.

Domino's promises Dom will deliver a “human-like, conversational” pizza delivery experience, which must mean he'll drive to your house in a 1992 Ford Escort with bald tires.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1789, a gathering during the French Revolution gave rise to the political terms “left wing” and “right wing,” with deputies representing commoners sitting to the left and nobles sitting to the right.

We've simplified things in the modern era. No matter where congress members sit, we know who they represent: the big money donors.
