|Seems like another Monday.|
The Hoosierland weather will find us with mostly cloudy skies and some scattered showers.
(slated to taper off by tonight).
The high today will be somewhere in the low 60s...
A rather typical autumn day.
So, now that you know how to plan your activities, let's sit back, pour a nice warm cup of our morning beverage of choice and take a peek unto what's been going on elsewhere.
*** First out of the dresser drawer today is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
October 7 -
We've only ONE event to not and that is BALD AND FREE DAY.
|Make it SO...|
|I clean my head with a LA-SER.|
|I just saved a bundle on hair-gel.|
|Et cetera, et cetera...|
|You were expecting the MARX brothers?|
|I was bald BEFORE it was cool.|
*** Next up, we've got to show everyone (who wants to see the truth) how many SHOTS FIRED calls we had in Fort Wayne over the last week or so.

(They haven't gotten around to posting YESTERDAY'S calls yet...lazy)
*** And what would this city (which can be called a Crossroad of America) BE, without another high-profile DRUG BUST, hmm?
We seem to get at least one per year, but this one involves TWELVE perps, and NINE residences in the NE and NW areas of the city.
This has to do with the distribution of synth-matijuana aka "Spice".
FEDS involved, I doubt you'll see any "wheeling and dealing".
*** Next, Sure great to see the "Supremes" going AGAINST the WILL OF THE PEOPLE in their latest clusterf$ck decision (to not get involved with the LAW)
Here's the story link:
This is just another case of a few dictating policy to the masses...much like some atheist causing such a fuss, so as to BAN a prayer at a commencement for several HUNDRED students...it's all more PC Bullsh$t.
And the people are getting fed ip with it, too.
And here we thought the job OF the Supreme Court WAS to "hear cases" which can have a profound impact upon this nation's people and the laws established by our own Constitution.
Silly us, right?
*** On the lighter side, for all you comic book and superhero lovers out there, tonight is the premiere of THE FLASH on the CW at 8PM
|The NEW series on the CW.|
Here's the trailer link:
It's being done by those who brought us ARROW (another well-produced series).
I still love the original series starring John Wessley-Shipp, which aired on the heels of the Batman reboot w/ Michael Keaton.
|The FIRST series from the late 80s.|
*** Last back to the bat-cave...as General George S. Patton once noted:
"All real Americans love a winner...and will not tolerate a loser".
Too often, we're assaulted with hundreds of shades of gray, and that will tend to "muddy the waters" when it comes to our decision process concerning winning and losing.
The gay marriage things is but a TACIT victory (for now).
The defeat of the AXIS powers during WW2 was a DECISIVE victory.
And, once in a while, there is a PYRRHIC victory - one that is costlier that one would prefer.
Has America been on the losing side?
Not when compared to everyone else, but since we're such a "young" nation, we don't have the luxury of THAT many centuries of history to either look back upon or learn from.
But, this nation TRIES to do the right thing, and in that, we have succeeded.
The challenges we, as a country face, are growing every year, and what is needed are a few victories in our plus column, to remind us that OUR nation was born out of necessity, and initially governed with a unique method OF that governance.
We need to remember WHY this nation as created, and at what cost.
THAT is the path we need to find again...and stay on.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
