Tuesday, Damn More Week Left, Motes

Small meal: A person in southwest Florida has died after being infected with an extremely rare brain-eating amoeba, health officials said. The agency had previously issued an alert last month, warning residents about the Naegleria fowleri infection. Florida Department of Health said it would soon die of starvation.

A sad Good-Bye: We lost actor Tom Sizemore,61. Mr. Sizemore could be intense, charismatic and manic in roles as soldiers, thugs, cops, killers and, in a television movie, the baseball player Pete Rose. He lived his life just as intense as his characters.  Mr. Sizemore at the time was dealing with serious drug problems, which dated to the 1990s. Over the years he used heroin, crystal methamphetamine and cocaine, and he was in and out of rehab. His unique look, intensity, and talent will be missed.

Congratulations: Nearly 60 years after he was first recommended for the nation’s highest award for bravery during the Vietnam War, retired Col. Paris Davis, one of the first Black officers to lead a Special Forces team in combat, will receive the prestigious Medal of Honor on Friday. His selfless actions, heroism, and love for the men under his command epitomize the meaning of HERO. Well done, Sir. Well done.

History repeats, maybe: Back in 1981 a group of hard corpse fanatics moved into an area of Oregon, 64,281 acre’s known as Big Muddy Ranch. They named it Rajneeshpuram . Within three years, the neo-sannyasins people, complete with typical urban infrastructure such as a fire department, police, restaurants, malls, townhouses, a 4,200-foot (1,300 m) airstrip, a public transport system using buses, a sewage reclamation plant, a reservoir,[14] and a post office with the ZIP code 97741. It is thought that the actual population during this time was potentially much higher than they claimed, and the neo-sannyasins may have gone as far as to hide beds and citizens during investigations. Various legal conflicts, primarily over land use, escalated to bitter hostility between the commune and local residents, and the commune was subject to sustained and coordinated pressures from various coalitions of Oregon residents over the length of its existence. By the time it was over there had been murder, attempted murder, bio-terror, immigration fraud, currency and drug smuggling. The town was incorporated, had its own automatic weapon toting “police” and had attempted to assassinate Charles H. Turner, the U.S. state attorney in Portland,Or. This is called working the system against itself. Wait, history will repeat itself.
