ITEM: I had to laugh (because that's what I do) as I was reading the story about Paul Kevin Curtis, the part time Elvis and full time "one brick short" who sent the ricin-laced letter to President Obutthole. Mainly because of how he signed the letter- as well as others he's sent to various politicos on his s-list.
Many of his screeds have ended with the same line his letter to President Obama reportedly did: “I am KC and I approve this message.”
Now as far as I know, the government did not investigate my son KC. However, that KC had his own problems, as we learned on facebook:
I feel like if u vomit on urself right after showering to go to work u desereve a day off.
|Two KCs, both nutjobs. One guilty, one goofy.|
ITEM: Catherine Kieu of California has come up with a great way to take care of a cheating husband.
Orange County Deputy District Attorney John Christl said in his opening statement that Kieu, angry because her husband was dating a former girlfriend, laced his food with sleeping pills on July 11, 2011, then tied him to a bed, severed his penis and put it in the garbage disposal.
Wow, harsh. But, as they say, problem solved. Laurie says she'd have been better off just getting a divorce, but her way was cheaper. And justice, I suppose, was served. Kinda reminded me of the story from 2004 in which the old man from Romania was trying to cut the head off a noisy rooster in the pre-dawn darkness while in his boxers- the old boy in the darkness grabbed his non-struggling wiener rather than the neck of the struggling bird, lobbed it off, and then watched as his dog (who in the pre-dawn darkness mistook it for sausage) grabbed it and ran off. Maybe not the same reason, but very similar results.
ITEM: And then there were three. Moscow Dynamo claimed their second straight Gagarin Cup when Traktor goalie Michael Garnett found himself out of position about 6 minutes into OT, and Alexei Tsvetskov found himself with a puck and an empty with which to create a 3-2 victory and a 4-2 series win. It was the second time I had to ask WTH when Garnett's wrong place-wrong time routine cost his team a goal- the first had given Dynamo their first lead at 2-1.
And today, Joachim Eriksson stopped 32 shots as Skelleftea topped Lulea 4-0, winning the Swedish championship by that same count. Skelleftea wins their second championship, the first came back in 1978.
ITEM: Also in sports, my two baseball teams learned the secret of snapping losing streaks. For the A's, they washed away a series loss to the Tigers by running their record against Houston to 7-0 this year in a three game sweep. Cincinnati, meanwhile, ended a five game losing streak by sweeping three from the lovely Philadelphia Phillies. Nothing like eating alive the worst team in your league!
ITEM: And that reminds me a saw an article where U-Haul announced last year's 15 top places to relocate to. The list included: New York City (13), Philadelphia (8), and Chicago (3). I ask you: WHY??? Houston was #1 for the 4th year in a row- which we know one of the reasons was NOT the baseball team.
ITEM: Time to take a break so I can work on Time Machine in a bit.
