Luke Burbank, host of the radio show and podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," brings us his wrap-up of the week’s awesome and not awesome news.

Greenwood Park, a new bar in Park Slope, Brooklyn, is catering to the parental crowd and allowing children to come into the establishment.

The Insane Clown Posse has threatened to file a lawsuit against the FBI in order to stop them from "violating the rights of Juggalos on the mistaken belief that they are gang members," according to JuggalosFightBack.com. The announcement came over the weekend during their 13th 'Gathering of the Juggalos' festival.

And the Scrabble world is A-B-U-Z-Z with controversy. A young Scrabbler was caught cheating at a national tournament after hiding a pair of blank tiles.
