IS damp out there this morning...we're getting better.
Also, it's not as mild out there today (well, technically, it IS winter)
That countdown clock to Christmas continues...just TEN days left to get any shopping done.
(and if you're shopping ON Christmas day...good luck and what is WRONG with you?)
Our Hoosierland weather today sees us with a bit of early drizzle, more above normal temps with a high around 48 degrees. Expect some breezy weather as well with partly/mostly cloudy skies.
Now, let's all get that morning drink to quench our thirst as we see what has been going on elsewhere...
*** First off of the skillet is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
December 15 -
---Today is NATIONAL LEMON CUPCAKE DAY
---It's also BILL OF RIGHTS DAY
---And, it's CAT HERDERS DAY
THEY look like they know, right?
*** Next, we bring you ALL the police calls the media is afraid to tell you about, because they want you to think that crime is always going down (it goes down TOO OFTEN in our part of town, and not in the lessening way)

FIREWORKS CALLS - 12/7 -12/13
((none)) for a change.
As usual, most of the calls are on the south side of Fort Wayne...
*** Next, and speaking of crimes, we bring you this tale of someone who got an early Christmas gift, courtesy of the local constabulary.
|"Tis the season to be BUSTED..."|
Oh, yeah...THIS guy's a loser.
|And ANOTHER nice "board-up".|
He's been VERY naughty, you see.
Burnett is a drug dealer, and the elaborate camera/surveillance system for the house made police smile, because they knew they'd find SOMETHING else inside.
|Coal in your stocking!|
Burnett faces some nice charges such as:
--Dealing Cocaine or Narcotic Drug-Fentanyl, a level 5 felony
--Possession of Cocaine or Narcotic Drug-Oxycodone, a level 6 felony
--Maintaining a Common Nuisance, a level 6 felony
--Possession of Marijuana, a level 6 felony
He ALSO faces a level 5 felony for "carrying a handgun w/o a license", but if it's in your OWN house, you're allowed to carry, period. What I think they MEAN is that he is in possession of a handgun in the commission of a felony (drugs) or perhaps he has prior felonies, which would disallow him from HAVING a firearm.
Helps to get things CORRECT, right?
*** And, we also bring you some holiday cheer by ways of a FOILED ROBBERY ATTEMPT (sure to make the employees smile).
TRIED to take place yesterday around 1145 hrs at the Public Service Credit Union located at 3425 Hobson Rd.
An employee noticed a car pull up to the front door, and a man exited the vehicle with a handgun. That employee told another to LOCK THE DOOR, defeating the ability of the robber to enter into the lobby past the vestibule.
When the robber knew the heist would be defeated, he turned to leave, tripped on the rug and fell on his way out (clumsy-ass, too) and got into what witnesses told police was a silver 2000 Buick LeSabre. Three other people were noticed being in the car.
(Try looking in and around sector 45 - we have several of those cruising about DAILY)
|BOLO this vehicle on the SE side.|
I'm sure of one thing...this group will try another location, so it would behoove the FWPD to maintain some presence at other similar facilities.
*** Next up, Rush Limbaugh was calling out an MSNBC "host" for saying that Star Wars was "racist". Imagine THAT!
|In an idiot's mind...far, far away...|
|Got her a case of the DUHS. Get a damn life.|
NON-ISSUE, and being a Star Wars fan from day ONE, so, as a public-service to you, the faithful followers, here's the skinny:
|I pleaded with them - black makes me look SHORT.|
If you notice, ALL the really EVIL BAD GUYS in Star Wars tend to lean to those DARKER colors (Darth Maul, Count Dooku, The emperor)...it's the "intimidation" factor at work there.
|Wow, lookit all the white guys.|
All the regular bad guys (read blaster-fodder) wear WHITE, however, but they often can't hit a bull in the ass with a bass fiddle (or the side of many barns).
Yet all of this is an aside from the leftards trying to make something that's NOT racial into something that SHOULD be (typical)...for a few ill-informed and uneducated hacks when it comes to something called MYTHOLOGY.
|Lucas MUST have read my writings.|
Star Wars tells a classical mythological tale of "The Hero's Journey" (look it up).
|A pictorial reference.|
|Seek you racism where none exists.|
These leftist media hacks need to go find a nice big rock (preferably on Tatooine), and crawl under it...and STFU...period.
Master Yoda once said something like "so much anger...so much hatred...lead you to the dark side it will."
Maybe if these morons spent more time taking all this technology we have at our fingertips and apply it to LEARNING and UNDERSTANDING things, rather than running their mouths off before they engage their brains, life for EVERYONE would much nicer (and quieter).
*** Last back to the comfy chair...this whole manufactured "flap" over Star Wars is, if you look closely, another smack-attack at "religion".
|NEVER screw with the good guys.|
The entire GOOD VERSUS EVIL - LIGHT VERSUS DARKNESS premise is nothing new.
Cain and Abel...can't go back much further than THAT, can you?
It's also the belief that when you die, you STILL live on...(the Force is strong even after death).
Sounds Biblical to me
The characters found in the screen saga are much the same as many people found in the Bible, as well as in Homer's Odyssey...or Melville's Moby Dick.
And it's the perfect analogy to "The Human Condition".
We have similar people in our lives, and in the world...ones who exhibit incredible good, as well as those capable of unimaginable evil.
The MORALITY tale is another part of not only Biblical writings, but modern day mythologies as well.
Good must triumph over evil...light destroys darkness...pretty simple stuff to understand.
|More in common than you think...|
The War on Christmas is a perfect example, and it's not that much removed from another version of GOOD vs. EVIL.
You just have to KNOW the difference...and never blur the defining lines between them.
That will make you strong with the "Force", and one with a much higher authority.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
