Week Ending 9/2/06

Will return on 9/5/06. Tune in because upon return, refreshed and full of spit and rancor, we’ll revisit some old crimes and get details delivered directly into my email box.

Also, an interview with a British online DJ and a Kaitlyn update. Yes she visited Mom-Mom for three days, at age two and a half, and yes, I survived.

Also, sexy sandals? With pics!

Of course we’ll be covering the Emmys and the fashion smashes and faux pas.

    "Whether technically insane, or merely wrong, ignorant, weak, stupid or malicious, the majority of people around the world - what we respectfully call 'world opinion' - are rarely right about much of anything. That, in a nutshell, is why the world is in the shape it is - and always has been."

    Here's a short and simple Bird post.

    For a redtailed hawk decided to attack a robin's nest.

    What happened next is all about truth, justice and the American way.

    Also, some excellent bird pics from an amateur photographer that could rival the best.

    Time for some True Crime.

    What about Jonbenet Ramsey and her so-called pervert killer being imported BACK to the U.S.A by those Colorado prosecutors?

    Click in because I've got a believable scenario about what really happened to Jonbenet.

    I also delineate the many problems with this case and all the problems focus right on the Ramseys.

    Also, book reviews I wrote in 1997 for books about this case and finally, what about this John Karr? How on earth did he murder Jonbenet Ramsey on 12/26/1996 when he was in Georgia that same night?

    Also, a dead baby found in an abortion clinic, that nutty woman who urinated on the floor of an airplane and caused all manner of havoc.

    An convict goes the Tookie Williams' route and writes a book but gets the death penalty anyway.

    And graffiti riddled pigs? A most heinous crime indeed.

    Iran's President starts a Blog of his own and there's still time to enter the Holocaust cartoon contest.

    Quote(s) of the Week

    "[V]oting is already easy and convenient. Going to the polls once a year is considerably less onerous than buying groceries every week or taking the kids to school every day. Adults who care about government and public policy make it their business to vote. Those who don't care shouldn't vote. We are all better off when people with no interest in civic issues ignore elections and leave policy matters to those who take the responsibilities of citizenship more seriously."

    - Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby

    This post is a link only.

    It's a link to a story I posted on FreeRepublic and nothing else.

    For MS. Magazine is calling for women to be proud of their abortions and tell their story.

    So I did.

    It's not nice. Not nice at all.

    It's time for True Crime and we learn of new and strange crimes and re-visit some older ones.

    We've got an update on Natalee Halloway and that Fresno rape of an 11-year old, and more on the Phoenix shooter.

    An email came to me about another crime posted and it's interesting.

    A brother is charged with killing his younger brother and the details surrounding this strangeness could not be made up.

    Time to address those crimes by our own soldiers in Iraq and hey, soldiers can be criminals too. Plus some detail about other military crimes documented before to disappear to...where?

    Finally, a most horrific crime involving an angry dog and Elvis teddy bears.

    Time for some True Crime and there's a bunch.

    We've got our own border guards smuggling illegals, a UN guy distributing drugs for terrorists and a heroine in that shooting at the WA. Jewish center who seemed to have been missed by the Lamestream media.

    Also, Andrea Yates-what does her new verdict mean?

    We've got another Jessica Lunsford found dead in a neighbor's home.

    You've got to read this strange story of a dog mauling and the mother only guilty of being stupid that the prosecutors want to throw in jail.

    Much, more.

    We've got more on Boston's "Big Dig" and the strange "fake but accurate" memo.

    Also, LA's crook Jefferson and the attempts to use the constitution to protect the man.

    Remember Michael Schiavo? The guy who insisted his wife be murdered by starvation? Well, he's another Liberal victim that they love to recruit.

    Update on the Qana farce and Baltimore's mysterious MD4BUSH saga might be way more heinous than it sounds.

    In the Australian House of Representatives last month, opposition member Julia Gillard interrupted a speech by the minister of health thusly: ``I move that that sniveling grub over there be not further heard.''
    For that, the good woman was ordered removed from the House, if only for a day. She might have escaped that little time-out if she had responded to the speaker's demand for an apology with something other than ``If I have offended grubs, I withdraw unconditionally.'' — Charles Krauthammer

    I can't understand why somebody like that guy in Phoenix who shot that innocent kid. Why in the hell would he do something like that? Was it out of anger or did he just find it fun to pick the kid as a target and shoot him? The frame of mind of people nowadays are so violent or so corrupt and vile that the importance of human values should once again be instilled in everyone's mind.
