    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.

    Francis has frequently been the focus of street art in Rome. Early on in his papacy, posters of Francis dressed as a superhero appeared near the Vatican, while more recently dozens of posters critical of his heavy-handed actions against conservatives dotted the city.
