US Senator John McCain has admitted playing
a game on his iPhone during a Congressional
hearing on Syria.
The Washington Post published a picture of the
senior Republican---an advocate of military inter-
vention in the Syrian conflict---playing a poker
McCain sarcastically alluded to the "Scandal!"
on Twitter, pointing out the hearing had been more
than three hours long and adding: "Worst of all I
But several comments replying to the post were
critical of the senator.
The Washington Post said its photographer Melina
Mara had seen McCain playing the game during a
committee hearing---and taken a picture.
The US Secretary of State, John Kerry, and other
senior officials urged the Senate Committee on For-
eign Relations during Tuesday s hearing that it was
time to act against the Syrian government, which
the US believes was behind a deadly chemical
weapons attack last month.
"As much as I like to always listen in rapt attention
constantly [to] remarks of my colleagues over a
three-and-a-half-hour period, occasionally I get a
little bored and so I resorted" to poker, Mr McCain
later told CNN.
John McCain McCain was his party s nominee
for president in 2008
"But the worst thing about it is I lost thousands
of dollars in this game," he said---adding it was only
"fake" money. (BBC)
He s a beloved mayor, who s held the top office
in Talkeetna, Alaska, for 16 years. So imagine the
townfolks shock when he was attacked.
Brutally mauled. By a dog.
Oh, did we mention, this mayor s a cat?
Mayor Stubbs, a yellow tabby with more respon-
sibility than your average cat, survived---but is in bad
shape. A punctured lung. A fractured sternum. A 5-
inch gash on his side.
Doctors took out a chest tube Tuesday, and he
was breathing on his own for the first time since the
"It s a shame," said Ashley Kearns, who works at
a pizza shop in the small town about 110 miles north
of Anchorage. "He s the mayor, it s not a joke. I know
it s ridiculous, but the town is run really well."
The story of how Mayor Stubbs rose to power
made international news after he was found in a box
full of kittens in front of Nagley s General Store in
Lauri Stec, manager of the general store, decided
to keep one kitten and named it "Stubbs" because
he had no tail.
Soon afterward, residents weren t happy with any
of the human candidates in the upcoming mayoral
election and voted for Stubbs as a write-in candi-
The kitten won, set up its unofficial mayor s office
in the general store and spent more than a decade
running the town.
Because the town of Talkeetna is a "historical dis-
trict," the mayoral post is more symbolic than func-
tional, locals say. That distinction makes it easy for
the community of about 800 human beings to be
led by a feline. (CNN)
