Blogging here will be even slower than it has been


Daniela is a lovely 17-year-old girl next door; her leukemia returned about a month or so ago and she is doing poorly.  My wife and I are close friends of her family.   If you have any spare prayers, please hang a few in the air for Daniela and her family.

My 65-year-old brother-in-law died from a sudden heart attack yesterday.  My wife is not taking this well; it was just under two years ago when we buried her mother.

Another LOSER attempts to gain eternal fame via cold-blooded mass murder



This LOSER is the latest qualifier for Damnatio Memoriae.  The Colorado LOSER’S face now pops up everywhere.  Each time we run across the image, we should turn our heads in disgust; the LOSER is not worthy of our eyes.  The media should quit mentioning his name.  He is a murderous coward.  He is a LOSER.  Show me the faces and tell me the names of the victims and heroes.  I have no interest in knowing anything about the LOSER who shamed his family.

The Department of Homeland Security wants to sniff you



Did your Mom always remind you to wear clean underwear so she would not be embarrassed if you wound up in the emergency room?  Mine did.  If she were alive today, Mom now would now fear that Homeland Security would sniff me out of a crowd and perp-walk my dirty undies across network news.

The contraption that Homeland Security is alleged to be championing as a tool against terrorists actually has a bigger future in medicine.  When I went for my last physical, the doctor asked why I was wearing black underwear.  I told him that they were white but I neglected to change them regularly.  He huffed something about personal hygiene being key to good health and then went on to say that he needed a urine specimen, a stool specimen, a semen specimen, and a blood sample from me.  I just left him my underwear.  Since then, I have not worn underwear, but I am sure that Homeland Security already knows that.

The fatal hug did not involve a shoulder holster


This is a follow-up to my preceding post.  I would not have been alone guessing that a horizontal shoulder holster rig (muzzle pointed to the rear) was involved.

Some details on the pistol (.40 caliber Smith & Wesson Military and Police) along with some comments on the “waist holster” can be found HERE (does not say whether it was an inside-the-waistband or outside-the-waistband design.  It does say that it was made of a “soft, neoprene-type material”).  The investigation still has not put together exactly how this all happened.

A hug triggers a holstered handgun


A Detroit woman was celebrating her birthday.  She hugs a guy (an off-duty cop) from behind and things went tragically wrong.


I would love to read further information (facts, not speculation) on this incident, especially details about the gun and holster.

First crickets of this year


Seriously.  Until a couple of hours before midnight, I had not heard a single cricket all year.  Further, this is the first year that I can remember NOT hearing the frogs announcing that spring had arrived.  Very weird.  I am usually outside until the late hours of every day; this has been the year of the silent nights.
