A lighthearted look at the news of the day:

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, have decided to step back from the British royal family in order to become financially independent. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to let those Amway people into the castle.

The royal couple wants to begin earning a professional income and split their time between England and North America. To make things more fun, they should have to disguise themselves for job interviews. Then, if the royal line of succession ever comes their way, they could secretly run the U.K. out of an apartment in Cleveland.

Apparently, they haven’t gotten the queen’s approval. If this goes off as planned, Harry and Meghan might be as welcome at future royal events as Ricky Gervais at a Hollywood party.

Last week I told you about the mysterious drones people of eastern Colorado had seen flying through the night skies in tight formation. Faced with all the reports, the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management sent up an airplane, which flew for five hours without finding a single drone. Of course. Everyone knows aliens have cloaking devices.

Earlier, a 75-member task force was convened in Colorado to get to the bottom of the drone sightings. Some people on the task force are beginning to wonder whether witnesses on the ground really are seeing airplanes, instead. Sure, that’s just what the aliens want you to believe.

Quick, name one vexing problem that was solved by a 75-member task force. The first one with a verifiable answer gets a dusty blue ribbon.

TikTok, the popular Chinese smartphone app that has a lot of people worried, has been discovered to have security flaws that allowed hackers to gain access to private information and videos. A lot of young people use TikTok to record short, entertaining videos. OK, so maybe it is a secret plot for communists to gain power, but who thought the end of the free world would be so fun to watch?
