It has been a long day already (after a LONG WEEK), this morning started at 4am, with an early morning trip to the airport-no I am still here in town this weekend. I dropped my neighbors off for a vacation.

 

I know it is early when I look at the “World Famous Pepper Dog” and say “Good Morning,” followed by “It’s early isn’t it?”

 

…I get back a look that says “F*CK YOU DAD! I am going back to sleep” and for the first time ever, she did not follow me downstairs.


With Hockey Season Starting, October is in full swing-with baseball playoffs determining who the new “Mr. October” is, Political Campaigns are in the final push, and Halloween along with the shows it brings are airing on TV. I have a new favorite show (scared the pi** out of me!), American Horror Story; with Connie Britton (the hot wife from ‘Friday Night Lights,’ and from ‘Spin City’), and Dylan McDermott (I really wish he would not show his bare ass so much though). This show twists and turns and scares you on all the dips and spins. WOW!!! AHS runs on FX every Wednesday Night at 10pm

In addition to having the bajeevies scared out of me this week we had; The Yuengling release, New Facebook bi*ching, Buckeyes continued suspension, Fast & Furious Gun Scandal, Hank Williams on MNF, Unemployed kids picketing about their jobs and 401k’s, Millionaire Sur Tax, Sarah Palin (again) saying she won’t run for office, Michael Jackson Death Trial, Steve Jobs Death (along with some very poignant and funny posts), all with Nancy Grace Farting. Social Media this week has overwhelmed me…and it is not even the weekend (better up the ADHD Meds)!


It has been a Rough Week…

This week has been full of Lies from (former) friends, non pays, SLOW PAYS, and gigs lost. My favorite quote “oh sorry Matt, I guess I did have your info. I can’t pay you today though I am on my way out of the office)”-after 2 weeks behind payment, you are leaving before you take a minute to cut my check?!?!? I am glad I don’t handle myself like that…

 

Also my stylist (aka Stage Mom) made me get a haircut because of the way I will look on the jumbo-trons tonight. I always thought my hair made me look taller, her response “you look fat.”

 

So needless to say I have a haircut (and stayed on the treadmill a lil longer today). But after I got my locks chopped I noticed something…something was not right. The chick who cut my hair must have left some talcum powder in my sideburns? NOPE…I am officially going grey GOD DA*N IT!!!

 

But problems faced this week have solutions and because of this outlook, that does not make them problems or even a negative obstacles, it makes it all experiences!!! Well they say wisdom comes with grey hair? I’d rather be dumb and immature!!!

I am not the only one who had a rough week. Hank Williams Jr. also had kinda a rough week. I guess we no longer will be able to answer if we are “Ready for Some Football?”

Hank Williams Jr.’s Political Comments Result in Monday Night Football Suspension

October 3, 2011
Hank Williams Jr.Hank Williams Jr.’s comments about President Obama on Fox & Friends have prompted ESPN to drop him from Monday’s (Oct. 3) opening segment of its Monday Night Football telecast, USA Today reports.

 

During an interview earlier in the day to promote The Legend Begins, a new collection of rare and unreleased recordings by his father, the late Hank Williams Sr., Fox & Friends’ Gretchen Carlson began the interview by asking him which GOP presidential candidate he favors. After replying, “Nobody,” Williams made reference to Obama and House Speaker John Boehner’s golf game that took place in June at Andrews Air Force Base. Calling it “one of the biggest political mistakes ever,” he added, “It would be like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli leader Benjamin] Netanyahu, OK?” He also called Obama and Vice President Biden “the enemy.” In a statement, an ESPN spokesperson said, “While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize he is closely linked to our company through the opening to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result have decided to pull the open.

I AM NOT saying ESPN was right or wrong! It is a private business matter and they can say and do whatever they want. My problem is the decision was based on a concept that happens all too often; the left can say what they want, and it is OK. The right says anything (in or out of context) and all Holy Hell breaks loose. Need an example? Check out these images;

Hank’s Response:

“Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme – but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me – how ludicrous that pairing was. They’re polar opposites and it made no sense. They don’t see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.”

“Every time the media brings up the tea party it’s painted as racist and extremists – but there’s never a backlash – no outrage to those comparisons… Working class people are hurting – and it doesn’t seem like anybody cares. When both sides are high-fiving it on the ninth hole when everybody else is without a job – it makes a whole lot of us angry. Something has to change. The policies have to change.” – Hank Williams, Jr.

 


FOR ME?                               

I guess I may be looking deeper into the issue, maybe I am wrong? Hank went after BOTH sides of the Isle (Obama-D, Biden-D, and Boehner-R, as well as Kasich-R).

 

He later released a response “When both sides are high-fiving it on the ninth hole when everybody else is without a job – it makes a whole lot of us angry. Something has to change.”

 

BOTH SIDES/PARTIES are being targeted! When asked which GOP Front-runner he supported, his reply was “nobody.” He called Obama, and Vice President Biden, along with Boehner “the enemy” with an added description of “The Three Stooges.” Hank even threw Ohio Gov Kasich-R into the mix (yes I know, in addition to his choice of words, his math is also off!).

 

Now to me (and I guess my 21 years in politics and 27 years in the entertainment worlds means I know nothing) he is stating (in his own unique “Hank Done it this way” tone) he is fed up with all sides (note: criticizing four politicians 2 R’s and 2 D’s). He also states he is supporting Herman Cain, and not Palin, as he did in the last cycle. He enforces this comment with “the whole country is sick of ’em,” later going on to quote the USA today poll with a large number of Americans polled wanting Congress (MADE UP OF D’s, R’s, and Indy’s) voted out.

 

Hank quoted a number of 89% of Americans believe Congress should be replaced (it is actually 76% of those polled in the USA Gallop Poll August 8, 2011, but who’s counting?).

 

Again Hank MAY NOT be a mathematician!

 

I guess my question is other than calling out Obama for NOT supporting our friends in Israel (again in his own “Hank Done it This Way” tone)-by comparing him to the “most hated man the world has ever known,” how is he going after one side of the isle?

 

It sounds to me (again what do I know since I only have worked political campaigns, been involved with strategy, and tour all over this great country playing music on stages-yes with Hank, but with The Dixie Chicks, and Tim McGraw as well {later being strong D’s}) like ‘Ole Hank is calling ALL OUR Elected Officials (R’s, D’s, and I’s) out with “the thought of the Leaders of both Parties Jukin and High Fiven on a Golf course, while so many Families are Struggling to get by.”

 

I do not believe it is an attack BY a member of what some call a “racist, elitist political party,” nor is it an attack ON a party that “stereotypically” plays the “victim.” It was an attack on the elected officials of THIS GREAT COUNTRY, by a man who is passionate and made him “Boil over and make a Dumb statement.”

 

I guess what comes from this is…as R’s (WE) should not pump our chest so loudly, and D’s…quit being victims and trying to find fault in any dumb obnoxious passion fueled statement. The same type of statement the Dixie Chicks made in the past , and the same as statements previously displayed on multiple occasions by Keith Oberman (former ESPN announcer who left the network on his own accord, and was FIRED by MSNBC {and the Yankees}) both for their own poor choice of words. I guess since ‘Ole Hank is not supporting her, even Sarah Palin for her own poor choice of words falls into this category of passion filled response. ALL HOWEVER BELIEVED what they said at the time, and all were punished in the court of public opinion by one group or the other.

 

…there has been a lot of correlation between Hank’s comments, and Natalie from The Dixie Chicks statement (I guess the reason is, they are both in Country Music?). Natalie called the president (G.W. Bush) a “Dumb A**” and said she was “embarrassed to be an American,” and continued to “defend” her actions. Hank however released a statement stating “Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme – but it was to make a point….I have always respected the office of the President.”

 

This week, many have asked what I think?

 

Hank is a passionate man, who cares for this country. He associated the POTUS with another person who turned against the Jewish peoples. I don’t agree with the terms or tones used, however I do agree with him on some levels, and in terms of the controversy association between Natalie of The Dixie Chicks…I at least respect him more for his response.

 

AS FOR ALL OF US? THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?!?!? Get some thicker skin! Even Tony Romo is able to play with some additional padding! I hope this fumble is overruled in replays, and we can again answer the question “Are you Ready for some Football!?!?!” If not, well I have a funny feelin’ the Country Boy Can Survive…

 

(since Hank has now pulled himself from ESPN and Monday Night Football as of Thursday the above is outdated. I wrote for a piece earlier in the week, liked it…so I kept it. To follow up, by HWJ “pulling” himself and his award winning “Monday Night Football Theme” after the fact in a press release-he is not only NOT a good mathematician, but also REALLY BAD AT P.R.)

 

BUT WE BACK ON SUBJECT underling what I was getting at (and I believe Hanks Freudian statement) as a country WE MUST STAND BEHIND ISRAEL, if not for Religious purposes, or even for what is right…we need to stand by our ONLY ALLY in The Middle East!!!


‎”For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.” ~Isaiah 62:1

 

I “THINK” I get it, I just wish the American People would as well…really hoping my Jewish friends see through the current “Hope & Change” president, and see he is NOT helping them here, THIS COUNTRY’s Stability in the Middle East, or Their Homeland (by encouraging Palestinian Occupation in Israel–Despite the 63% of Americans side with Israel { http://www.dnaindia.com/world/report_majority-of-americans-want-barack-obama-to-back-israel_1595911}).

 

THIS COUNTRY NEEDS to back U.S. Defense Sec. Leon Panetta as he works with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to secure the Israeli boarders and assist with maintaining Military Dominance in the region.

Another person who “get’s it” is my buddy Kevin. He wrote this to Ohio Senator Sherrod Browns Office (OH-D)

 

October 5,

2011

 

Dear Friends,

 

It’s time to end the partisan bickering and focus on jobs. Too many middle-class Ohioans are struggling to find work, send a child to college, or keep up with their mortgage.

 

Last month, the President announced his jobs plan and traveled to Ohio to outline the American Jobs Act.

 

Now that he’s announced his plan, I want to hear your thoughts and ideas.

 

I believe we can build on Ohio’s spirit of innovation and manufacturing heritage to create jobs in clean energy, biotech, and aerospace. But we need to stop giving tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas and instead ensure a level playing field for Ohio workers and Ohio manufacturers.

 

 

When we stood up to China and enforced trade laws to prevent a flood of cheap imports that undermine Ohio-made products, we saw new jobs in the Mahoning Valley and Northwest Ohio. Helped by federal investments in clean energy, Toledo is now second in the nation in solar panel jobs. By encouraging our state’s aerospace industry, manufacturers in Dayton and Cincinnati have new business opportunities. And by investing in workforce development, Northeast Ohio’s biosciences industry continues to grow.

 

 

I respond:

Dear Senator Brown:

 

If you don’t give tax breaks to corporations, they will move overseas. American business tax rates are too high. Doing business competitively is already nearly impossible due to unions, EPA bull crap, lawyers, litigation, etc. all imposed /supported by Washington. Americans are fed up; we want less government, get the heck out of the way. Send us the bill for the transgressions and lack of oversight of the previous generations, we will pay it, but only if Washington

stops spending on stupid jobs bills, Obama care, and all the other crap the corrupt “leaders” can dream up. My generation has been labeled with stupid names like Genx, Geny, Gen911. That’s all crap. We are carrying the burden of generations of selfish politicians and selfish American through direct taxes and “hidden taxes”.

 

All of this “Great Recession,” started with one thing.  Much American wealth was stored in peoples home values. Washington stupidly wanted to create a false “Equality” by letting unqualified people mortgage houses they could not possibly afford. Washington  did this by setting the lending rules at Fannie and Freddie (puppet Govt.institutions) so low that anyone’s pet fish could build a mansion. As a result, an abundance of poor mortgages were underwritten. Don’t blame the mortgage companies, banks, etc. They were simply selling mortgages because they could (Fannieand Freddie had created a fire sale) and in the end the first round of losers were the financial institutions and Pension Funds who had the worst oversight (the ones who held the mortgage bonds when the bottom dropped out). But they were not the biggest losers.

 

Americans who actually worked and could afford their houses were the losers. The reason? Simple. Supply and Demand. Too many damn houses were built, thereby devaluing everyone’s house because only 50 percent of the mortgages should have been written in the first place. So what are we left with? Bankrupt people who should never have had houses in the first place, and the remaining folks who could afford their mortgages but stuck in underwater / severely devalued houses because of the supply side issues caused by Washington; this is a hidden tax delivered through a miserable attempt to redistribute wealth. As a result, until everyone who actually works pays off ~70% percent of their original mortgage value (what will be required to get them back to a normal loan to value) this country is going to be stuck in this rut. Americans were robbed by Washington through Fannie and Freddie and most of them don’t even know it. I for one know it, I was foolish and did not foresee this nightmare Washington had created until it was too late.

 

How might you fix this? Quit spending the damn money on bullshit jobs bills and focus on fixing the supply side issue you created. Tear down the houses we don’t need. If you INSIST on spending your way out of this problem, tear down the houses that no one lives in, rip out the unmanageable excess infrastructure. Rebalance the supply side issue.  Problem solved. Americans get (some of) their wealth back, they get their leverage back, they spend more, and jobs are created.  (Or just wait 15 years if you want, but you better tell people the truth).  You might say you would be creating another false bubble.  Not so.  Houses can’t be built for what they are being sold for today. They can’t even be built for what they were sold for before this recession.  Material prices have risen because there is a significant amount of inflation due to the devaluation of the dollar, another hidden tax, caused by the last two stupid stimulous bills).  Next time you will remember not to let your cronies at Fannie and Freddie give houses to pet fish.   You will have to also remember to lower corporate tax rates, stop spending, shut down the EPA, and the lawyers, etc. if you want the companies that actually employ people to come back.

 

The burden that has been laid on my generation is big.  If you fix this now, and THEN we all pay our share, we all will pay it forward together, unlike the selfish generations before us.

 

Kevin

P.S.  For the record, clean energy, as you discussed in your letter, is an industry funded by government stimulous, regulations and backed by junk science, please don’t try to fool more people with more government “good ideas,” we know how that last one worked out for you.  The rest of the world is going to ignore this clean energy fad and kick our butts with low clost “dirty” energy.  I’m not suggesting we dump our sewage in the ocean like the Chinese, but we have to allow Coal and Nuclear power to exist.  Washington has basically shut these industries down.

There has also been a lot of debate over The “Occupation of Wall Street”

Oh those crazy kids, I guess ‘cause Bush is not in office, they need something to protest? I wonder 1.) Who held a gun to anyone’s head and told them to invest? (I use cash only, and have steered clear of all 401k’s, and all other finances that rely on someone else) 2.) Looking at their ages, and college majors (Environmental Health?) do they even have any knowledge on the situation, and DO THEY EVEN HAVE ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE SPRAY PAINT ON THE SIGNS invested in the issue!?!?

 

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/04/us/anti-wall-street-protests-spread-to-other-cities.html?_r=1

 

Those protesting on Wall Street are a JOKE! The majority just want something to do, and to feel part of something.

 

WANT TO FEEL PART OF SOMETHING?!?!? Get a job! Then you won’t have all the free time to make banners and flags with “nifty” slogans…maybe not even have enough time to hang out in the street IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY WHEN YOU SHOULD BE WORKING-OR LOOKING FOR A JOB!

 

I liked this quote from the New York Times:

The New York Times quoted one OWS participant explaining to a nearby newcomer: “It doesn’t matter what you’re protesting. Just protest.”


Some other great lines

Ann Coulter
Ann: “I am not the first to note the vast differences between the Wall Street protesters and the tea partiers. To name three: The tea partiers have jobs, showers and a point. No one knows what the Wall Street protesters want — as is typical of mobs. They say they want Obama re-elected, but claim to hate ‘Wall Street.’ You know, the same Wall Street that gave its largest campaign donation in history to Obama, who, in turn, bailed out the banks and made Goldman Sachs the fourth branch of government. This would be like opposing fattening, processed foods, but cheering Michael Moore — which the protesters also did this week. But to me, the most striking difference between the tea partiers and the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ crowd — besides the smell of patchouli — is how liberal protesters must claim their every gathering is historic and heroic.”

My Buddy

Pat: Kudos to everyone who is occupying Wall St. or anywhere else. As you complain about unemployment and having to pay back student loans (which almost everyone who went to college before has had to do) someone else is applying for a job you could’ve had but you decided that acting like you live in Greece or France was a better option. That person getting the job thanks you. Me on the other hand…

I wish all the ‘kids’ participating in #occupywallstreet would take their backpacking trip through Europe and stay there.#GROWTHEFUP

 

SO INSTEAD of taking up “dead space” in a “street” or overly utilizing your “creativity you learned in art class.” (and do we really need to keep arts in the schools?-but that is another topic for another time!). Use your voice of the ballot, not taking time off a job you supposedly have to scream at someone who is doing a THEIR JOB (maybe the protesters should try it?).

 

But if you want to vote absentee this November, here is assistance with that

http://betterohio.org/earlyvote?msource=JK100411EM1

 

I have gotten into it with a lot of folks over policy, and politics (shocker right?), as well as been hosed by a few friends, and even clients who owe me (what is becoming) a great deal of monies this week.

 

In many cases I went to attack mode, but before I could act, was reminded not to from the following lesson:


Hurt is something you can’t take it back.

 

Take a minute and write down something on a piece of paper, a post it note or whatever. Maybe, write something negative you wanted to say to someone, or what someone has said to you.

 

Now crumble it up, throw it, tear it-whatever you need to do for 15 seconds.

 

Done…? Ok, now put it back exactly how it was. Unfold, fix, tear, clean off whatever stains are now on it (really don’t want to know what stains those are from). Put it back exactly how it was.

 

Go on…

 

Finished yet?

 

Does it look the same as when you first started?

 

NO! It does not! And that is the same for our words and our actions…we can say sorry, we can try and repair, we can try and take back to “way it was,” but what has been done, no matter how hard we try…we can never be put back “just the way it was.”

 

Remember no matter how bad it sucks, no matter how much you want to get even…there may be a day (or even in the next few minutes) you will want to take back what you said.

 

It ain’t always easy, BUT THERE IS A REASON for all the people and experiences we encounter. Don’t lash out at them (without thinking first)

 

“God doesn’t give you the people you want; he gives you the people you to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and to make you the person you were meant to be.”

 

I may not have it all, I may not be financially rich, many may not agree with all of my thoughts, and I may not be able to save the world. BUT…


“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” [Steve Jobs The Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993]

PASSING: 

Steve Jobs passed this week. I have a HUGE problem with his customer service, his cult like products, and the constant upgrading for profit.

 

Actually I hope the pall bearers who are carrying him don’t drop the casket like they did to me (I-Tunes still owes me $1193.16)

 

HOWEVER the man was a jealous and we need more people in this world such as him. The scary part is, not Apple’s future success, but Pixar (a company I LOVE) may be in jeopardy. I just hope the “I-Hops” will be ok.

 

Why Pixar Will Be Hit Hardest
Apple’s visionary leader Steve Jobs is gone, having Wednesday died after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. While the Apple family will surely mourn the loss of its iconic genius, Jobs’ other company, Pixar, may miss him the most.    *

Pixar Animation Studios was once a division of George Lucas’ production company Lucasfilm before Apple co-founder Steve Jobs acquired the company in 1986. Under Jobs, Pixar reversed its downward spiral and revolutionized the filmmaking world, proving that computers can do anything cameras can, and that movies don’t need live action to have heart.

This was no more evident than Pixar’s first full-length feature film, Toy Story. Released in 1995, Toy Story was immediately met with rave reviews, and was the first-ever feature film made completely on computers. Nobody thought sophisticated computers could accurately pull off heartfelt storytelling about a cowboy doll and an astronaut action figure, but they did, and the world of animated films was forever changed. Toy Story became the top-grossing movie of 1995, raking in $360 million worldwide.

Some of my favorite tweets/posts/quotes

‎”Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
~ Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

 

“I hope Steve Jobs is like Tupac and keeps releasing new sh*t from the dead.”

 

Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” [The Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993]

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]

MILITARY:

Remains of 3 soldiers missing in Vietnam War identified, to be buried at Arlington cemetery

The government says it has identified the remains of three U.S. Army soldiers missing in action during the Vietnam War and will bury them Wednesday at Arlington National Cemetery.

The Department of Defense announced Monday that Master Sgt. Charles Newton of Canadian, Texas; Sgt. 1st Class Douglas Dahill of Lima (LEYE’-muh), Ohio; and Sgt. 1st Class Charles Prevedel of St. Louis, Mo., will be buried with military honors.

POLITICS:

Op-Ed: Taking sides on Issue 2: Retain Senate Bill 5: Dave Yost
Below is the op-ed that Auditor of State Dave Yost recently submitted to the Plain Dealer:

Issue 2, the collective-bargaining reform on the Nov. 8 ballot, is all about the math — the math of fairness and the arithmetic of affordability.
For most of Ohio’s history, there were few public-employee unions because of a lack of a legal framework. That changed in 1983, when the General Assembly gave government workers the right to organize, on top of the civil service protection they already had.

The world has changed a lot since then. For example, few in the private sector now get defined-benefit pensions — a guaranteed retirement check, no matter what happens to the stock market. Most of us now have defined-contribution plans; we get what we put in.

But government workers still get the guaranteed-check kind of pension. And in some instances, they don’t have to contribute anything; it’s all paid for by the taxpayer.

Issue 2 only requires that government workers contribute 10 percent to their retirement. That’s all. It doesn’t change that guaranteed retirement check. Issue 2 just requires government workers to have a little skin in the game. And if they already are contributing 10 percent to their pension, nothing changes.

The city of Columbus would save $41 million a year if employees had to contribute to their own, guaranteed-check pensions. That’s 500 cops and firefighters. Issue 2 will actually help to save jobs.

Or take health care. In 1983, it was common for health insurance to be a free fringe benefit. As health care costs have skyrocketed, most of us have had to cover more and more of our insurance premiums. It’s not at all rare for a private-sector worker to put up 30 percent of his or her health-insurance premium.

Issue 2 says government workers must contribute at least 15 percent to their health care coverage. This is going to destroy the middle class?
Health care costs are a huge cost to state and local governments — that is, to you. Governments have no money of their own, only the money you pay in taxes.

My office did a performance audit of Youngstown City Schools earlier this year. If school employees had to follow the lead of private-sector workers and pay just 15 percent of their health care premiums, the schools would save $1.5 million per year.

That’s 25 teachers who won’t be laid off. Issue 2 won’t cost jobs; it will save jobs.

Issue 2 comes down to the math, and it’s time to do the math. The people who work for the government largely don’t care about the math. They’re going to vote their pocketbook. That doesn’t make them bad people.
But maybe it’s time we voted our pocketbook, too.

SWAT Shoots, Kills Armed Man Robbing Donatos, CPD Says
Donatos Employee Hurt By Flying Debris

SWAT officers shoot and kill a Columbus man after they watch him rob a Northeast Side Donatos at gunpoint, CPD says.

Columbus police and ATF investigators were investigating a series of business robberies and developed information on a Columbus man who was a person of interest in the crimes.

SWAT officers began surveillance on 48-year-oldMichael A. Lloyd.
SWAT officers were doing surveillance on Lloyd Wednesday night and saw him exit his vehicle and enter the Donatos at 2769 Northland Plaza Dr.

CPD said he was wearing a mask and carrying a firearm.
Officers were not able to stop him before he entered the business but immediately surrounded the building, waiting for him to exit.

Lloyd was fatally shot when he confronted two SWAT officers as he ran from the rear of the business, CPD said.

WHAT THE HE**?:

Texas School Punishes Boy for Opposing Homosexuality

An honors student in Fort Worth, Texas, was sent to the principal’s office and punished for telling a classmate that he believes homosexuality is wrong.

Holly Pope said she was “absolutely stunned” when she received a telephone call from an assistant principal at Western Hills High School informing her that her son, Dakota Ary, had been sent to in-school suspension.

“Dakota is a very well-grounded 14-year-old,” she told Fox News Radio noting that her son is an honors student, plays on the football team and is active in his church youth group. “He’s been in church his whole life and he’s been taught to stand up for what he believes.”

And that’s what got him in trouble.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?:

A New York man came up with an unusual plan to hurt his ex-girlfriend: kill a bear, skin it, and then dress up in the carcass and attack her. The Associated Press reports that Clyde Gardner, of Malone, N.Y., planned to wear the bear hide and claws to attack his ex-girlfriend and kill her, leaving no trace of his foot or fingerprints at the scene of the crime. The woman, with whom he had a violent, on-again off-again relationship and a child, had recently thrown him out of the house again, the report said.

Gee: OSU ‘poster child’ for compliance
E. Gordon Gee is a very smart man. There’s a reason he’s the nation’s highest-paid president of a public institution.

But there are some things Gee is better off leaving alone. Like anything that has to do with the Ohio State football scandal.

A day after athletic director Gene Smith chalked up the latest NCAA violations by football players to “individual decisions … made to go off the reservation,” Gee had this to say in his annual fall address to the Ohio State faculty Tuesday night.

“We are the poster child for compliance, and whenever we discover a possible infraction, we resolve and report it to the NCAA, no matter how minor the violation. That’s what we have done here.”
