Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...
As is always the case with election night, Tuesday closed the book on many campaign dramas and contentious plot lines that developed among candidates throughout the election season.
But one photograph snapped late Tuesday night is worth -- as they say -- a thousand words.
Photographer Melissa Lyttle took this picture following Democrat Charlie Crist's defeat in the Florida governor's race.
A staffer removing that notorious fan which all of America learned Crist never leaves home without.
A dispute over whether said fan was allowed made for some tense moments last month at a debate between Crist and now re-elected Republican Governor Rick Scott.
Cause for Panic
Parents of hundreds of elementary school students in California were sent into panic mode recently when they received messages on their phones that their children were missing from school.
The Press-Enterprise reports the recorded messages went out at 11:11 a.m -- hours after the students should have arrived.
Officials at John Adams Elementary say it was a mistake.
A message intended for a handful of parents whose children were absent went out to every parent instead.
A correction was issued a short time later, but not quickly enough for parents, wondering what happened to their kids.
One parent called it the longest eight minutes of my life.
School officials says they have taken steps to make sure it does not happen again.
Cheaters Never Win
And finally, an Egyptian bus driver who cheated on his work drug test got quite a shock when the results came in.
The BBC reports, the man submitted his wife's urine instead of his own.
But there was something he did not know about his wife.
When the test results came back, the man's boss gave him a chance to confess, but when the driver insisted he had not cheated, he was told "congratulations, you're pregnant."
