Guardian Angels exist: A 3-year-old boy who spent three nights lost in rugged Australian woodland was playing with toys at his family home on Tuesday, as his family and rescuers celebrated the happy ending to a desperately difficult search. Anthony “AJ” Elfalak, who has autism and is non-verbal, was taken to hospital for observation after he was found on Monday sitting in a shallow creek and drinking water with cupped hands on his family’s remote rural property near the village of Putty, north of Sydney. His mother Kelly Elfalak brought him home on Monday night to sleep in his own bed. Police do not suspect anything suspicious was behind the disappearance. Just nice to have something good every once in a while.
Chicago scorecard: 63 shot, 8 dead.
It ain’t my fault: Recent excuse for being removed from a flight; “I felt like I was being discriminated against for being a fat, tattooed, mixed-race woman, which in turn left me full of emotions like anger, disappointment, helplessness, humiliation and confusion.” You forgot you’re a silly, bald, pigeon-toed, knock-kneed, short person with absolutely no redeeming social values.
New speak: President Joe Biden struggled Tuesday during a discussion on extreme weather threatening the country, inexplicably declaring that tornadoes were no longer referred to as tornadoes. “Looks like a tornado — they don’t call them that anymore — that hit the crops and wetlands in the middle of the country,” Biden said. He didn’t say what we should call them, but don’t call them “tornadoes” anymore.
In the early years, patriots met at churches, taverns, parks, and city squares to formulate the revolution. Consider where you’re NOT allowed to gather today. Hmmm.
Don’t use ‘em anyway: The general counsel for ride-sharing giant Lyft recently called on other corporations to take a stance against a recent abortion Texas law. Lyft General Counsel Kristin Sverchek told CNN’s Poppy Harlow this week: “Our President and CEO, John Zimmer and Logan Green, reached out and said, ‘What can we do about this?’ Very quickly, we decided we wanted to act.” “Abortion is a Constitutionally protected right.” No, it is NOT. Nowhere in the Constitution does it ever address the topic, or even use the word, abortion. Besides, you run a cab company. Shut up and drive.
Interesting movie-weekend; Quigley Down Under, Runaway, High Road To China, and all 9 Jesse Stone movies. That’s right, a Tom Selleck binge.
