Who’s that Man(ning)?
The first cat is free. The next one will cost. By the time you realize what you’ve done, your couch is no longer yours and you’re sleeping on the floor. Cats know how to expand.
An asteroid about the size of a school bus will pass close to Earth today, but it poses no danger to the planet, NASA astronomers say.
The huge rock, called Asteroid 2012 BX34, will close to within about 36,750 miles of Earth, or about .17 times the distance between the Earth and the moon, according to a Twitter post from Asteroid Watch, which is operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Near Earth Object Office.
“It wouldn’t get through our atmosphere intact even if it dared to try,” an Asteroid Watch tweet says of the 37-foot diameter rock.
The asteroid makes its closest approach about 10:25 a.m. ET, according to NASA.

Our wonderful Juan…
Robert Hegyes, known for his role as Juan Epstein on the ‘70s sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter,” died on Thursday. He was 60.
Hegyes was transported via ambulance from his home in Metuchen, New Jersey, Thursday morning, and was in full cardiac arrest by the time he reached the hospital, Steven Weiss, a spokesman for the JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey, confirmed to CNN.
“He was pronounced dead shortly after he arrived there,” Weiss said.

Not bad for a few nerds.
Before I get to Thursday’s recap, I’d like to note, “The Big Bang Theory” beat “American Idol” head-to-head from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the all-important 18-49 demographic.
The Leonard and Penny story arc certainly seems to be attracting viewers. And this time, it wasn’t a dream.

That’s the Rev. Al Green, Ladies and Gentlemen
President Barack Obama probably hopes his plans to reform financial aid programs are executed as well as his unintentional initiative to boost the music industry.
After Obama sang the first line of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” at a January 19 fund-raising event at New York’s Apollo Theater, the song got a 490% sales boost, according to Nielsen SoundScan via Billboard.
The video of Obama singing went viral, prompting 16,000 downloads to be sold that week, Billboard reported.
“Don’t worry, Rev. I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation,” Obama said to Green (who was also in attendance) after his short serenade.
Sing, sing, sing
