Operation Was A Failure But The Patient Died

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Everyone’s worst fear came true last night as Oklahoma botched a lethal-injection execution. Clayton Lockett, 38, was declared unconscious 10 minutes after the execution began but began clenching his teeth and straining to lift his head off the pillow a few minutes later.  The executioners closed the witness curtain after 16-minutes and Lockett died about a half hour later – from a heart attack.  What a mess!

It’s pretty hard to feel sorry for this piece of shit who shot a woman and then buried her alive – but no one wants the government to become a torture-murderer either.  Neither does anyone want the society to be reduced to the same levels as killers.  But we certainly are not when we try to provide the accused with a trial of his peers and countless appeals.  That’s a lot more civilized than what they do for their victims.

I don’t know about this particular case but I think capital punishment should be allowed in crimes that are so heinous,  the animals don’t deserve to live among us.  Child torture-rapists-killers and serial mass murderers immediately come to mind.  I’m sorry no one has jumped on my idea of life without the possibility of parole plus a suicide pill.

My Lamborghini Isn’t In Yet

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

So until it’s delivered, I’ll continue to ride the bus. Actually I like riding the bus – it’s a new adventure every day! When I see ‘#7- Monroe’ approaching in the distance, I smile and think of it as an old friend to whom I don’t have to talk or make future plans. It’s like getting a check in the mail. You know it’s going to come – but it’s still a nice moment when it arrives.

When my bus stops, I know exactly what to do. There’s not a second of social awkwardness. I wait for the door to open, walk up two steps, greet the bus driver, slip my dollar into the slot, and then find a seat. My favorite is an aisle seat, first row, balcony – just like in a theater. The balcony is the raised last third of the bus and those two extra steps discourage a lot of undesirable seatmates like fat 2-seaters, bag ladies, old cranks, and drunk bums.

The occasional drunk can be a three-stop show himself if he gets a little loud. The other night a bum saw this kid across the aisle who had a pack of Newports. Of course he asked for one – of course the kid said ‘no’. The drunk asked again, this time louder with a little whine thrown in. The kid said ‘NO’ even louder. The drunk then asked if the kid would trade a smoke for this grubby, old Riccola cough drop he pulled out of his pocket.

Even from three rows back in the balcony I could see that the lozenge was nothing on which I would even like to step – much less put in my mouth. The other passengers started to titter, the kid started saying some unkind things, the bum tried to raise the ante to two lozenges, and then the bus driver loudly yelled, “Everybody – Shut Up!” Everybody shut up.

There’s an old saying, “It’s tough to put a dollar value on good times like these.” But on the bus, it isn’t. They only cost a buck.

Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With Small Pistol

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

This is a story of self control and marksmanship. A woman survived a grizzly bear attack with one well placed shot from her itsy bitsy .25 caliber Beretta Jetfire.

These are her own words:

“While out hiking in Missoula, Montana, with my boyfriend, we were surprised when a huge grizzly bear came charging at us out of nowhere.  She must have been protecting her cubs because she was extremely aggressive.  If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire, I would not be here today!  I yanked it out of my purse and fired one shot.  It hit my boyfriend in his kneecap and the bear caught him easily. While the grizzly mauled the poor cripple, I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.  I love that pistol.  I’ll find other boyfriends.”
