Hey there. It’s Friday, Nov. 4, 2016, and I’m here with your helping of the Morning Scoop. (Subscribe here to get the Scoop in your inbox Mon-Fri. Do it!)

What You Need to Know

• A Fresno County parolee who says he found a jumpsuit with the word “prisoner” on it discovered why you shouldn’t put on a jumpsuit with the word “prisoner” on it and then walk in front of a jail.

• Your Samsung washing machine might explode, so look out for that.

• A San Diego church that, incredibly, doubles as polling place, is warning parishioners if they vote Democratic, they’ll go to hell. Seems legit.

• Someone in Mendota is $1.3 million richer. I like stories like this.

• A person in Clovis was robbed at gunpoint in their garage. I hate stories like this.

• A man in Denmark accused of mass-murdering Jews in World War II will not be prosecuted, which is a sobering reminder that atrocities that seem to have happened in the distant past really did not occur all that long ago.

What You Want to Know

• Check out what Fresno looks like from the inside of a vintage 1928 airliner. Seriously, this plane is cool.

• This list of 5 Things to Do Today has something for everybody – unless you hate fun, then you’re on your own.

• What’s it like to be an actress and share a name with another, more famous actress? Donald Munro asks Fresno’s Julie Andrews.

• High five to this year’s inductees into the Fresno Athletic Hall of Fame.

What You Wish You Didn’t Know

• A woman got drunk and tried to move her own van with a forklift and somehow this didn’t happen in Florida.

• And finally, tuberculosis still exists and someone in California has it.

Happy Friday, all. Enjoy your last weekend before the Election Apocalypse!
