09/08/2006: When I was a high school senior, going through the travails of deciding on a college, one university really piqued my interest: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I wanted to pursue a military career as a pilot, and–given that I didn’t have the connections to get a Congressional nomination to any of the service academies, Embry-Riddle […]
09/08/2006: Upon returning home from work, Susan Kuhnhausen, an ER nurse in Portland, Oregon, encountered an assailant who was armed with a hammer. No problem…she strangled the scumbag with her bare hands. Hooah!
09/08/2006: Quite frankly, I don’t have a dog in the fight over The Path to 9/11. After all, prior to 9/11, it’s not like either the Clinton Administration–or the GOP-controlled Congress–had any sense of urgency about capturing and/or killing Osama bin Laden.

Up until now, I thought Debbie Hersman had been doing a fabulous job keeping the public informed of the NTSB’s findings with respect to the Comair 5191 crash. Now, however, a family member of one of the victims is indicating that […]
09/08/2006: A 16-year-old girl directs an 11-year-old girl as she does “The Monica” on other teenagers in a basement. The kicker: a 40-year-old man who is also present lacks the moral compulsion to stop the abuse, instead having sex with that 11-year-old girl. I’d love to take that 40-year-old piece of human debris out to […]
