I was going through some pictures I took recently and had to share this one of Boo.
Westboro Baptist’s crazy train has soared to new levels:
A controversial Kansas church is changing its protest plan after an incident in Oklahoma last week.
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church said they want revenge after someone slashed the tires on their van during visit to protest a military funeral in McAlester. The group said it plans to now target funerals for Oklahoma children.
Here’s a blog post on the tire-slashing.
Oh, and here’s a fun, related tidbit from the article:
The Westboro Baptist Church's website now reads "God Hates Oklahoma" and "The Lord curses them by killing Oklahoma's children and casting them into hell. Thank God for more dead children in Oklahoma."
Wow. Just wow.
These people just sicken me. What happened to that whole sanctity of a human life thing… or loving your neighbor… you know, all that stuff that these people seem to have skipped over in all their bible studies or whatever the heck it is that they do.
Darrell Craig Vogel seems to be trying to become the Joe DiMaggio of DWI’s:
An assistant city attorney for the city of Beaumont was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated Saturday morning for the second time in two days, according to Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins
Darrell Craig Vogel, 50, was arrested about 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning after Lumberton police responded to a call of an intoxicated person driving away from a local drug store, Sullins said.
Vogel had been arrested early Friday for driving while intoxicated in Beaumont and left the Jefferson County jail on bond at 5 a.m. Friday.
Nothing exceeds like excess…
In all seriousness, though, I hope the state of Texas throws the book at him, pegging him squarely in the face and leaving him with a black eye. There’s just no excuse for this kinda stuff. None. At. All.
I deleted the Amazon wish list…
If you haven’t heard, Amazon’s been selling a book for it’s popular Kindle that’s more or less a “how-to guide” for pedophiles, and is standing behind the sale of the book.
"Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable," the company said in a written statement. "Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions."
So… I’m boycotting Amazon until the book is gone. Which means one thing…
There was just one thing missing from the Giants’ celebration last night: the phone call from the President:
Giants players and personnel thought they'd hear from President Barack Obama by telephone after San Francisco beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 to capture its first World Series title since 1954.
But Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter tells KNTV they have yet to take that call.
Come on, dude… isn’t this the one easy part of your job?
