- Judges, court staff, and attorneys involved in the U.S. Ninth District Court of Appeals are planning a hootenanny this summer on Maui, and you and I are expected to foot the bill. Looks like taxpayers will be on the hook for about a cool million according to Big Government. At first I was steamed, as I usually am when government elitists take another hit of OPM (Other People's Money). Then I reconsidered. Anything that we can do to keep the judges of the Ninth out of the courtroom is money well spent. Party on Judge!
- Remember Abdel Baset al-Megrahi? Convicted of the Pan Am Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people, al-Megrahi received a life sentence in the Scottish court system. Unbelievably, the Scots released him in 2009 after he served only 8 years on humanitarian issues. You see, the killer had prostate cancer, and had only a few days to weeks left to live when he was released August 20, 2009. He returned to a hero's welcome in Libya, and went on to live in a villa in Tripoli. Well, the monster who had only weeks to live in the summer of 2009, died yesterday, May 20, 2012. This terrorist enjoyed 33 months of life and freedom that he didn't deserve. What a great world!
- The whole "Trayvon Martin as a beatific cherub" narrative is slowly crumbling down around the ears of the race-baiters. George Zimmerman's broken nose, his lacerated scalp, his 14 cries for help recorded on a 911 call, witness statements that indicated "the guy in the hoodie was beating the other guy MMA style", illegal drugs in Martin's system, would suggest to all but the most dogged of race-baiters that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. There, I said it.
- Ladies and Gentlemen......The BeeGee! Sadly, the brothers Gibb are down to one with the death of Robin Gibb over the weekend at age 62. Coupled with the death of disco queen Donna Summer last week, it has been a very bad few days for pop icons of the '70s. The BeeGees and Summer were both monumental talents who produced the teen soundtrack for many of our lives. They will be sorely missed.
