And you thought your family was dysfunctional: A funeral meant to celebrate the life of an elderly woman in Northern California turned into comical mayhem after an uninvited family member stormed the service, ran over guests with a car, tipped over the casket, and struck a water main. The extraordinary sendoff was not, apparently, entirely unanticipated. Police said at least one guest brought a stun gun to the service, in apparent anticipation of family drama. In a completely unnecessary comment the director of the Rolling Hills park told Mercury News that the “bizarre incident” in no way reflects the standard operating procedure of the cemetery. Man, I’ll bet thanksgiving is a hoot at that house.
Inquiring minds are silenced: On August 10, 2019, Jeffery Epstein was found dead at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. His death came just a few weeks after he was jailed on accusations of sexual abuse and sex trafficking made by multiple individuals. His associate, Ghislaine Maxwell has been tried, convicted and sentenced. It’s been three years since Epstein was found dead in his jail cell, and we still don’t know the name of a single customer. NOT ONE. And it appears no one is asking.
I’ll listen again: Tuned into the Seb Gorka radio show yesterday. A caller started in by saying “check the Google Earth” and advanced to the “Uvalde shooting didn’t happen”. Man, Seb called him everything but legitimate. Loser and idiot were 2 of the themes Seb expounded upon. My kind of radio show host.
Not surprised at all: Fresh reporting in Newsweek on Wednesday revealed another revelation about the events that preceded this week’s FBI raid of President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago: there was an inside man (or woman). William Arkin reported that the FBI’s unprecedented Monday raid “was based largely on information from an FBI confidential human source, one who was able to identify what classified documents former President Trump was still hiding and even the location of those documents” It seemed like there were 17 people listening to every call Trump made, I am not surprised it was based on info from a snitch.
In my o[pinipon: Lots of people unhappy with the recent fbi raid. Some are calling it the tipping point. Other’s point out a 5:30 SWAT like raid was uncalled for. There were numerous civil and criminal violations by fbi. Please, this is NOT a call to revolution or violence. They’re giving us the rope. In November we’ll use it to hang them out to dry. Well, except here in Hawaii.
Baseball, the right way: The incident happened during a Little League Southwest Regional Playoff final. Righthander Kaiden Shelton of Pearland, Texas, was facing batter Isaiah Jarvis of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tuesday when an 0-2 pitch got away from him and slammed into Jarvis’ helmet. Jarvis fell to the ground clutching his head as his concerned coaches ran to his aid. After a few moments, Jarvis’ head cleared enough for him to walk unaided to first base. Meantime, Shelton stood on the mound staring at the ground in tears over what happened. After a moment, Jarvis walked to the mound and put his arms around Shelton, telling him, “Hey, you’re doing great. Let’s go.” Shelton’s teammates and coach gathered around the pair to join in consoling the young righty.
Who won? Don’t care. That’s why I’ll sit in an open parking lot watching some kids play and not sit and waste time on the “pro’s”. This is baseball.
Off to Big Island this weekend. Enjoy the saturday story and the sunday rant. See ya Monday.
