Youth Group finds family in need of help
Yesterday a youth Group on regular patrol discovered a family that was not politically correct hiding in their basement. The youth group became suspicious when they spotted a coupon page from the local newspaper that was not cut up sitting in the recycle bin. After further investigation by the Youth Group they discovered lights on in unoccupied rooms adding to the concern that the family was not being politically correct by wasting energy and resources. The local politically correct enforcement officer was called and the family of four was arrested and taken to a training facility for 14 days of retraining. Each member of the youth group received 4 merits as there were 4 people in the family. The merits can be later applied to their personal PC ranking to show their status in the community.
Ministry compromises with the Catholic Church
The Ministry of Political Correctness has made a compromise with the Catholic Church. The ministry has decided to ban the Catholic Church from use of the media. The move came because frequently the Catholic Church says things that are politically incorrect. The ban option was chosen out of respect for the Church as they have been around longer than the Ministry. The other option would have been to arrest the Pope and send him to a training facility. This move was applauded by rights groups as the politically correct thing to do.
History edits continue

The 500 terabyte mark was passed recently and the Ministry can say comfortably the project will be finished in the next 7 years.
