Teh Squeaky Wheel
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, GN!
Hope Elena and Mac are well this morning…and the rest o’ you lot, too.
Have some coffee; here’s looking at you, gerbs!
I got nothin’ else.
I believe that’s a new record.
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Kilted Fatwa!
The weather is finally cooling down -- it should only be 88°F today. Oh boy, time to put on a sweater!
Hai, Paddy --
It’s supposed to hit 84 here today, which is a bit unseasonably warm. The fainting couch may be useful. 😉
I strongly suspect the siren lure of civil asset forfeiture -- along with corrupt, heedless public officials -- in South GA led to the murder of a businessman by the badged goons of Laurens Cty.
For the record, I do not trust the GBI to be honest, impartial investigators.
We had a little excitement in the neighborhood. A few blocks away some guy barricaded himself in his house when the police tried to serve an arrest warrant. They brought out the SWAT team with all their toys and eventually used a robot to breach the front door (the explosion was loud). Fortunately the guy was live-tweeting the event and was in the backyard when they breached. He’s in custody and not the morgue.
I suppose live-Tweeting a SWAT team at one’s door is one way to try keeping them from “fearing for their lives!!1!”.
Was the warrant for an overdue library book? Missing a mortgage payment to Fannie? Being behind on a student loan? Giving one of the King’s men the stink-eye?
“Suspicion of domestic violence and stalking”.
Did he have a dog and if so, is the dog still alive?
Happy Thursday, GN! Glorious weather today. It almost made me forget it will be 6 months until Spring. As October is historically a dry month here, the road crews are out in force screwing up traffic. Now that the deliveries are over, it isn’t quite as infuriating, but I did not schedule 2 extra hours for routine supply runs this week . . .
Finger safety alert: It seems the makers of disposable aluminum pan lids have, in these horrid economic times, reduced the amount of aluminum they use in each pan by making the edges thinner. Merely trying to crimp the edges to seal the pan will slice your fingers open. 81 times out of 81.
Maybe after the first 70 you should have put on your cut-proof gloves.
Bummer about the aluminum pans…and your fingers.
Thanks for the update.
Just read that aircraft cleaning crews have walked off the job at LaGuardia over Ebola.
Guess they’ll be hiring some Ebola scabs. 😉
I didn’t think Ebola caused scabs.
I must think on this.
