[ Singles & Dating ] Open Question : Stalker! Ex BF in danger and I am scared. Random numbers texting me?
I'm in a legal situation and have a protective order against some guy. This happened about a week ago. Since then, four different numbers have texted me threatening my ex I was with for three years. This creep somehow got my number and my exes and says all this racist stuff towards us because I am white and he is black. My ex stupidly met up with him and got in a little fight. These different numbers all have one thing in common which is they're talking about the same thing. Tonight, this number text me a pic of my exes car saying "I'm waiting for him" and I looked at the pic he sent me and it said it's from "text free" which is a texting app. This shows me it's the same guy. I wonder if this guy is related to the guy I have a protective order against. Any ideas? I'm no longer with my ex obviously but I still really care for him. I really need ideas.

SAN JOSE, CA—Noting how lucky she was to have finally found the one she was meant to be with forever, local woman Julie Winters told reporters Tuesday she was relieved that her true soulmate also happened to have the same socioeconomic status as she does. “From the moment I met David, I knew we were kindred spirits who were destined to be together, and it’s just such a relief that his income mirrors mine so well,” said Winters, adding that she breathed much easier upon realizing the person she had been waiting for her whole life was also a white-collar professional earning approximately $75,000 per year. “It’s also reassuring to know there really aren’t any glaring gaps in educational background between me and the only man I could ever love.

News in Brief: Resolute Congress Passes Second Amendment Again

WASHINGTON—Easily securing the requisite two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate, a resolute United States Congress responded to the ongoing national debate on gun rights Tuesday by passing the Second Amendment again. “This is a very important issue, and I’m glad Democrats and Republicans were able to work together to take swift action,” said Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, joining members of both houses in celebrating the measure’s nearly unanimous approval less than a week after a mass shooting in a Louisiana movie theater. “The amendment now goes out to the legislatures of each state, where we’re confident it will be quickly ratified.” McConnell added that, as further episodes of gun violence continue to shape the discussion surrounding firearms, Congress would not rule out passing the Second Amendment as many times as necessary.

News in Brief: Overcrowded GOP Field Forces Iowa To Construct Massive Town Hall Stadium

DES MOINES, IA—In an effort to accommodate the tremendous influx of presidential candidates pouring into the state, Iowa Republican Party officials announced Tuesday the construction of a massive town hall stadium to play host to the campaigning. “Our state’s current gymnasium and VFW hall infrastructure is simply insufficient to handle the sheer volume of stump speeches and Q&A sessions that we expect from this vast field of GOP candidates, but this 2.3-million-square-foot arena will help meet that demand,” said Iowa Republican Party chairman Jeff Kaufmann, adding that the immense town hall stadium will have enough space for 80,000 folding chairs and a large central stage capable of holding all 16 Republican candidates at once. “This state-of-the-art politicking facility will be outfitted with over 30,000 microphones and microphone stands, allowing the multitude of GOP presidential hopefuls to field pre-approved questions from the audience.” Kaufmann added that ...

Excerpt from Nineteen Seventy Something
I stood there meekly in the dim glow of the street light as Barney wrote down my tag number. He then glanced at me and cocked his head, motioning to me to follow him to the patrol car. The car smelled strongly of cigarettes and cheap aftershave. I sat obediently in the passenger seat of the Chevy Impala as Barney called my tag number in over the radio.
"May as well get your driver's license out, boy."
I handed it to him and he fumbled in the seat and produced a sack of chocolate chip cookies.
"Get ya one. My wife just made 'em.'
