Update: My surgeon called at 3 PM, there’s a complication that needs addressed before he’ll go forward. Surgery has been rescheduled to June 24th.

It’s funny how the simplest, perhaps longest and best remembered prayers can bring us the most comfort. I’ve recited the one above while lying in bed trying to assess what was going on in my chest more than once over the last several weeks. As I began trying to sort out why my wellness and sense of well being had tanked so quickly and dramatically this past year, or so, the refrain from doctors was uncomfortably similar and confounding: if you get short of breath, stop what you’re doing and if you have any chest pain at all, call 911 immediately.
My natural, yet mostly unvoiced response was also the same … Did they teach you that shit in medical school?
Two Fla deputies shot at 3 times after ‘shoot cop’ graffiti appears – Authorities have asked the public for help after two deputies in Dade City, Florida, were reportedly shot at three times on Sunday.
An image being shared by the NYPD supposedly showing uniformed officers gathering for the funeral of Rafael Ramos was actually taken in 2007.
Well, that’s not good: Al-Qaeda has called for a new generation of ‘lone wolf’ terrorists to blow up American Airlines, United and Delta planes using bombs made in their kitchens.
Well, that didn’t end well …. The United States and NATO formally ended their war in Afghanistan on Sunday with a ceremony at their military headquarters in Kabul as the insurgency they fought for 13 years remains as ferocious and deadly as at any time since the 2001 invasion that unseated the Taliban regime following the Sept. 11 attacks.
Indonesia called off until first light a search for an AirAsia plane with 162 people on board that went missing on Sunday after pilots asked to change course to avoid bad weather during a flight from Indonesia’s Surabaya city to Singapore.
I’ve been arguing with John Cardillo because I feel his banner stunt sponsored by Chuck Johnson at GotNews was just that – a PR stunt that took focus away from where it belonged today, on two families grieving for a tremendous loss I would never wish upon anyone. I’d also hate to see more policemen killed and I fear that may happen if things don’t start to settle down. I asked who sponsored the banner and this is all I’ve seen to that end.
Antonio D. Martin, 18, appears to be pointing a weapon at an officer in the final frames of the security video below – scroll down. This directly below is only a screen grab.
Yes, the degenerate, and continuing to degenerate, Chucky C. my Johnson is being tongue in cheek here; however, true to his pathological form, Johnson always reveals more of his own internal void, than he does anything else, when he thinks he’s being funny, or smart.
I don’t care what your politics are, or your race, life history or predicament. In the news story Johnson is “gleeful” over, a young man of 18 is dead, his mother lost her child a day, or two before Christmas and a police officer will have to deal with the trauma of having taken a life. Will the cop, however right in his actions he may have been, have a Merry Christmas? Oh, I doubt it very much.
Looks like we now know where some Rolling Stone mis-reporters have landed new jobs! Heh Correction via Huffington Post.
A previous version of this story included an interview with a man claiming to have been at the scene of the shooting and friends with the deceased. As police have released statements saying the second person involved in the incident has fled the scene, the source is now suggesting he was never there.
Of course, that still leaves them up over Chucky Johnson who now seems to want to hide still more of his already many mistakes, no matter how egregious.
This fatal incident happened approximately two miles from Ferguson, now infamous given the Michael Brown, Darren Wilson incident. Many Ferguson protesters showed up almost instantly, there were at least minor confrontations and, naturally, the usual suspects are already blaming the police and crying injustice.
If 18 year-old Antonio Martin pointed a gun at the policeman, as is being reported, what is it people expect?
A Berkeley police officer fatally shot a suspect who pointed a gun at him late Tuesday, St. Louis County police said early today.
Police did not identify the person killed but Toni Martin, who was at the scene, said he was her 18-year-old son, Antonio Martin.
I noted at the time it looked like Charles C my Johnson was up to his reckless and irresponsible – not to mention dangerous and potentially damaging to the Right – antics again.
How about just stand down, for heaven’s sake?? Let’s pick back up where we started since only two are dead so far?? Are you kidding me? This guy is pathetic and way out of his depth. Geez!!
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that New Yorkers should set aside protests until after the funerals of the two police officers who were shot and killed in an ambush over the weekend.

It may be hard to believe that it’s been nearly 10 years since the highly publicized disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway in Aruba, but for her mother Beth, the quest for answers has never stopped. The last decade has been filled with not just heartbreak, but also great frustration, as Beth tells Oprah on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”
Hm: Henry Blodget says this is an example of the changing global economy: “The world is realigning. This is the big picture. China is getting stronger and stronger. Russia is in trouble.” Don’t tell that to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin doesn’t consider his country’s current economic state as a crisis and he remains defiant that the Ruble will bounce back.
Racist? More at link, there’s more to the story. Crystal Eschert defends Facebook comments about Michael Brown that got her fired It could be retaliation for something unrelated.
‘Where is Obama?’ she wrote on Facebook. ‘Where is Holder? Where is Al Sharpton? Where are Trayvon Martin’s parents? Where are all the white guy supports? So WHY is everyone MAKING it a racial issue?!? So tired of hearing it’s a racial thing. If you are a thug and worthless to society, it’s not race — You’re just a waste no matter what religion, race or sex you are!’
