Off topic: A day for walking, wacky pothole solutions, chocolate milk and brown cows, return of the typewriter

Happy World Sauntering Day, courtesy of a man who has rolled out other branding hits. Turn it into a Jacuzzi, and other creative ways to get cities to do something about those pesky potholes. If you think this is udder-ly shocking, you haven’t been paying attention: 7 percent of U.S. adults think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. And typewriters are apparently in the midst of a comeback — “type-ins” and all. Also, Tom Hanks is a fan.
