A lighthearted look at the news of the day:

Oh, you better not shout, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why: Another “Star Wars” film is coming to town.

---

Yes, friends, it’s a story that feels almost as old as Christmas itself (which is at least as old as the Millennium Falcon), and we are finally about to see installment No. 9 in a nine-part Skywalker saga. But fear not, with “The Mandalorian” on TV and Disney wallowing in money, we haven’t seen the last of the lightsabers. Anyone want a baby Yoda under the tree?

---

Actually, a new study says baby Yoda is more popular in Utah than in any other state. Maybe people here are hoping it can use the Force to help some of our local ball teams.

---

Love it or hate it, though, everyone agrees a new two-hour “Star Wars” movie in the theater beats even a minute of an impeachment hearing on TV.

---

Several weeks into this thing, Americans remain about 50-50 on impeachment, with a solid majority saying they would rather watch reruns of any canceled show from this television season than another lecture on the meaning of a high crime and misdemeanor.

---

Just as the House prepared to pass articles of impeachment, both parties agreed on terms for a new U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement on trade, then worked out a long-hoped-for budget deal, and then the president agreed in terms to a deal that may signal an end to the trade war with China. We may be just one indictment away from immigration reform and a new health care plan.

The house that Hollywood once used to depict the Clampetts’ mansion in “The Beverly Hillbillies” just sold for $150 million. With oil currently trading at under $60 a barrel, ol’ Jed might not have found enough Texas tea in them hills to pay for it all today.

---

The house has a reported tax bill of $1.3 million per year. It also includes an underground garage big enough for 40 cars and tall enough for someone to sit on a rocking chair in the back of a car without hitting her head, and it has a secret tunnel that runs from the house to the cement pond.
