Concerning the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bomber, I decided not blog about it, as I felt that just about every living person on the planet has seen, heard and read about it. The Boston TV stations have been on it since it this awful event happened. Myself, I can only watch it for so long, and then change the channel to watch something else. Also, am very selective to read online, and in the local newspaper, which is a joke, but that’s story for another time.
I feel bad for the families that lost relatives, and also for the injured, severe and the less severe.
As for the Westboro Baptist Church assholes, the ones that picket certain funerals, want to come to Boston. My advice, stay the fuck away, as you are not wanted.
For the readers of my blog want to read anything about the bombing and manhunt, here is a link (in bold) for The Boston Globe. For the time being, it is free for anyone to peruse. It has all the up to date info, plus videos, photos and slide shows.

The NH legislature over rode Governor Lynch’s veto, a law that now allows any parent of child in a NH public school, to request the way the student(s) are taught.
In what is now a law in the Granite State, through a veto override last week, parents can object to any part of a public school cirriculum and have it replaced for their child. Perhaps born of a Tea Party nod to home schooling, it’s really an attempt to turn public education into anarchy. Read more…

As a follower for more years than I can remember, it is hard to fathom what is going through Joe Paterno’s mind, after one of his long time assistant coaches, was arrested for sexual misconduct with minors. Paterno just recently got win number 409, making him coach with the most wins all-time, passing Grambling’s Eddie Robinson.
It is almost impossible to overestimate the impact Joe Paterno has had on Penn State since he joined Rip Engle’s staff in as a 23-year-old assistant in 1950.

Paterno turns 85 on Dec. 21 and they were a thousand ways to imagine how his career mind end. This one was not on the list. Read more…

What the hell is wrong with the Oakland Police? Another veteran minding his own business, gets the shit kicked out him, by the OPD.
