The Midwest "warm-spell" will continue today, and many will be wearing shorts.
Never fear, because cooler conditions ARE coming, just not as quickly as some of us would prefer.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly sunny skies, light breezes, and temps once again back up into the mid-80s, and no rain to speak of. Could always be worse, right?
Let's get ourselves that comforting cup of glass of fortitude poured and parked close by.
We just might need some to start our day.
*** First off of the hat rack is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:

There you go then...enough things to take notice of designed to keep you out of trouble.
Let's hope anyway.
*** Next up, looks like Hoosiers have chosen their next license tag.
Here's the story link:
|We have a winner!|
That design came in second.
I thought you folks LIKED the whole "Hoosier" thing. Guess not.
Anyway, another plate AGAIN...and costing more, thanks to the wheel tax that won;lt be going way until 2029 (if that). Getting quite a collection of old plates, that's for sure.
*** Next up, another Lima Rd bank robbery. Here's the story:
The suspect "is described as black, in his 20s, wearing a black ball cap, glasses, beard, black shirt, and baggie jeans that were so low-fitting one could see his red boxer style underwear sticking out,” police said in the release.
ANY black male in our part of the ghettohood...lol.
The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money (and never showed a weapon - just used a note).
This comes on the heels of the bank robbery Monday at the Fifth Third branch (6026 Lima rd) around 1300 hrs Monday.
|Smile and say "loser".|
*** Our King (mayor Henry) has put forth his budget for next year. Here's that story:
|Still good to be king.|
The budget total is NOT mentioned in the story...wonder why?
The News-Sentinel has the total budget amount in THEIR story:
|City math - Simple...isn't it?|
Yeah, the total budget is listed at $158 BILLION dollars.
Now, let's do some math, based on the J-G story:
((The parks department makes up 11 percent of the budget, while public works and community development represent 7 percent and 3 percent, respectively.))
Okay technically, let's call it 10%...one percent not explained?
(( Public safety is a major component in the city’s budget at 69 percent of the overall budget, City Controller Len Poehler said.))
Alright, that makes 79%, cumulatively. So far, so good.
((The 2017 spending plan will be no different, with personnel representing 75 percent of the city’s total budget.))
Now, here's where the city's famous (or infamous) "fuzzy math" takes over.
This brings us to a cumulative total of 144%.
I thought we could only have 100% (of anything)?
Someone forget to add a decimal place or carry a digit?
This should be fun to hear them "splain" this one.
*** Next, everyone with a YAHELL account - go change your password (again).
Here's this latest technological clusterf*ck:
JUST hearing about this NOW???
WTH is wrong with people that we can;t be notified AS SOON as stuff like this occurs?
500 MILLION accounts we're talking about here...not a few random ones.
Yes, this is a big effin' deal.
Damn shame they can't have a mail system that PREVENTS all those damn SPAMS either. One band-aid at a time, I suppose.
Let's set the damn fracture FIRST.
*** Next up, Time to turn the next page in "The Hobo Chronicles"...
|"Nothing to see over there."|
|"Ahh, dinner by solar light. How novel."|
Didn't hear they stopped making the stuff.
Still, food IS food, and some cats (Hobo) appreciate whatever food is provided, no matter who makes it.
*** Last back to the coat closet...I'm still trying to figure out the whole "need to loot" mentality when it comes to these supposedly "peaceful protests", as I'm sure YOU are too.
Why do we never see protests of ANY kind whenever a white person is shot by officers? And, let's understand that whites are shot MORE frequently then blacks by the po-po...it's just the law of averages.
|And THIS was FOUR years ago.|
|This works well, too.|
The EASY thing to do under such a situation WOULD be to just COMPLY and be done with it, right?
This is the ONE time that these low-information blacks choose the DIFFICULT way.
Wish to hell they'd apply that mindset to looking for a damn JOB and becoming a USEFUL member of society, rather than a government teat-sucking leech.
In every other instance, such people always take the EASY way out, and always at the cost to others (paying their way).
"PO-lease". They take the hardest way possible, and usually they get reminded as to why the hard way isn't the best way when dealing with law-enforcement.
All too often, we don't have to look for difficulties in life - they find us all by themselves, so why add to that?
Education is (and should be) paramount in anyone's life, and ignorance to that is never an excuse for the behaviors we see from these people...or anyone for that matter.
LEARN...you KNOW, and that knowledge will serve you well, whenever the need arises to apply it. You will know what truth really is.
Then again, if people had a better handle on good old moral behavior, seeking knowledge would be a non-sequitur and society wouldn't be in the state it's in today, right?
Therein lies the lesson for the day.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
