Here are a few things in news, sports, entertainment and pop culture that caught our eye last week.
■ Kraft Foods unveils candy corn-flavored Oreos for Halloween. Would this be blasphemy or sacrilege? We always confuse the two.
■ The National Football League kicks off the first week of its season with replacement referees. It worked out OK, but we’re not seeing a Keanu Reeves movie coming out of this.
■ An organization that represents atheists is starting a Nevada chapter that will lobby legislators to not open their sessions with sectarian prayers. Nothing personal, guys, but maybe Nevada could use all the help it can get?
■ Clint Eastwood explains that talking to a chair during the Republican National Convention was a spur-of-the-moment decision. Well, yeah, because it’d be really embarrassing if it had been meticulously planned out.
