Boston Bombings Strange Facts #2

There were 4 crosses in a memorial near Boylston St. in the aftermath. Three of them were marked with the names of the three civilians who were killed in the bombings. The fourth was unmarked.

Boston Bombings Strange Facts #1

After one week the number of injuries in the Boston bombings has been revised upward by 100 from 164 to 264. How strange is that? Consider that in such situations the total of wounded goes up for a day or two in drips and drabs. I've never seen it revised by an even hundred seven days after the fact.

Who are these extra wounded? This is not a case of additional hospitals picking up the wounded that day or an additional 100 from the firefight early last Friday morning, though there were a few casualties, I believe.

Who's in charge? I've never been on Facebook so I'm out of the loop. I hope Parks and Rec doesn't go through with it!!

couric/palin interview

The woman is a twit, but she never said 'I can see Russia from my house'. That was Tina Fey in an SNL skit parodying Palin. Palin said some equally dumb things to Couric though in the real interview. Here's the actual interview.

So much to write on the Boston Marathon bombings

There is much to write about from several different angles. I will slowly get to it as the facts unravel. There are some real doosies out there (facts, that is). I am sensing that nobody really wants to hear the truth, or as close to it as possible. Everybody would rather hear Neil Diamond croon "Sweet Caroline" before a Sox game at Fenway. It did happen. They flew him in first class.

We were made to feel good about our City, State and Country. And that is one of the stories...

~ Sweet Caroline! (Whoa, whoa, whoa) Good Times never seemed so good! ~

I will have to look it up, Parkas

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah!

This kind of monumental irresponsibility can't possibly come out of Sarah Palin's mouth. I would think she could be held legally liable for such ridiculous nonsense (if something were to happen). Not to mention the fact that she could have been elected Governor of a state with that kind of warped geography.

Jerry Garcia Amphithater

Has a nice ring to it, Marye. I hope SF Parks & Rec. goes through with it. Yes, everything seems to be on Facebook these days and that is for the worse as far as I'm concerned. It's a matter of privacy. I don't trade mine or those others who would be my friends and contacts.

RE: Sarah Palin Calls for Invasion of Czech Republic

Anna, here's the link to the article, which a co-worker flipped to me: http://dailycurrant.com/2013/04/22/sarah-palin-calls-invasion-czech-republic/. I have no idea to its legitimacy, but I find it doubtful. With as much comedic gold she's given us since her (in)famous quote, "I can see Russia from my house," if this article were real, every televised late-night talk show host would've been ALL OVER IT.

Regardless, I find it to be UTTERLY HILARIOUS. The fact that she's dumb enough for it to be believable makes it even funnier!

meanwhile, in SF

There seems to be a situation at SF Parks and Rec that they're thinking of renaming Jerry Garcia Amphitheater for some corporate sponsor. This is not playing well. So far all the info seems to be on a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SaveJerryGarciaAmphitheater) which is rapidly going viral.

Meanwhile, Jerry Day has been announced in the venue for August 4.

Parkas, you're scaring me!

Please tell me Palin didn't actually say those things. Please? I thought even Sarah Palin was too intelligent for that, unless she was knocking back a bottle of tequila with the good old boys she calls neighbors. Oh, right, that would be the Fox commentators.

We always knew they had to catch up with the facts, but them coaching Palin?
