Heroes in all sizes: The 8-year-old girl was mushroom-hunting in her backyard in Alpena Township on Wednesday when “an unknown male appeared from the woods,” the Michigan State Police said in a press release on Friday. Her 13-year-old brother witnessed the attack and shot the assailant in the head and chest with his slingshot, police said. The suspect fled the area but was located by state troopers hiding at a nearby gas station, “The suspect had obvious signs of injury sustained from the slingshot with wounds to his head and chest,” police said. Hell, Goliath was slain with a sling. Good work young sire. Good work.
Let them learn code: Computer science is on the way to becoming a new graduation requirement in Hawaii by the end of this decade as state legislators seek new ways to encourage homegrown technical skills.

This idea will be met warmly by many conservatives, but will cause a lot of young voters to lose their minds. The far left owns the youth vote as many 18 to 25 year-olds have become radicalized in recent years. Hey, how abut Heinlein’s idea, you have to serve before you can vote. Earn that privilege.
Just freakin’ wrong: According to a non-profit foundation helping veterans, twenty homeless and struggling veterans have been evicted from upstate hotels to make rooms for the incoming illegal immigrants, as reported by the NYP. The outlet added that the hotel staff told a former military and a 24-year-old man who had served in Afghanistan and was in serious need of help that their temporary housing was being taken away and they would have to find another place to stay.
They’re not interested: Kenner Louisiana police this week revealed a racial motive in the killing of a 66-year-old handyman. Two black male suspects, Tahj Matthews, 23 and Maurice Holmes, 25, admitted to their role in killing Lawrence Herr while he was repairing a mailbox last month. One of the suspects told police he “just wanted to kill a white guy.” Where’s Rev Al? Where’s the marches? When’s the riot? Where’s the news? Chirp Chirp Chirp
One thought on “Wednesday Motes, Trying To Catch Up”
