Image of the Day: More Fantastic News from Gallup - Economic Confidence Highest Since 2000

More phenomenal news from Gallup.  Consumer spending accounts for approximately two-thirds of the U.S. economy, and economic confidence has now reached its highest point since 2000, when the mainstream media couldn't stop talking about how great things were.  Thank you, deregulation and tax cuts.

A Dallas Cowboys' fan is suing the team, stadium owners, the fan club and team owner claiming her buttocks were burned after sitting on a bench outside the stadium.

According to the lawsuit, Jeanne Carillo planned to attend a Blue & Silver Debut scrimmage game at the stadium.  Prior to entry, Carillo sat down on a black marble bench that was uncovered and openly exposed to the August sunlight, causing her to suffer third degree burns on her buttocks.  Carillo further alleges that there were no posted warning signs and that the defendants should have known that the material used to construct the bench would become dangerously hot.

Carillo claims to have suffered physical pain and mental anguish, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, physical impairment and disfigurement. She is seeking an unspecified amount of damages and interest.  Carillo is seeking a jury trial.
