After more than 30 years in the slammer for trying to kill President Gerald Ford, 60-year-old Manson Family member Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme has been released from Fort Worth’s Federal Medical Center Carswell. And it almost went unnoticed. Being a sly little devil Squeaky Fromme slipped past the media laying low in one of many cars going in and out of the prison’s front gate. The prison officials are not saying where she is planning on living or what she plans to do with the rest of her life. In September 1975 Lynette Fromme made her way through a crowd of people gathered...

Michael Vick Eagles – Mike Vick Officially With Philidelphia Eagles

I don’t really know how I feel about Michael Vick being allowed back into the NFL and signed to a team. On the one hand he’s done the time for his crime, but on the other hand the activities he was involved with which landed him behind bars were brutal and violent, and not at all the role model behavior an NFL football player should demonstrate. While taking responsibility for his actions is a good thing for his young fans to see, I’m not sure if it’s enough to erase the whole Michael Vick dog fighting thing. After much speculation and rumors of various teams, Michael...

George Sodini Website – Gym Shooting Plan Chronicled

George Sodini walked into a “Latino impact” dance class at an L.A. Fitness gym in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Tuesday August 4, 2009 and opened fire – killing Heidi Overmier, 46; Elizabeth Gannon, 49; and Jody Billingsley, 38, before turning the gun on himself. Since the shooting, more and more disturbing details have emerged about George Sodini. Like how he hadn’t had a girlfriend since the early 80s, and that he chronicled his sad and lonely life on a blog, and even spoke of his murderous intentions. Apparently no one noticed all of this – which I’m sure contributed...

Is That A Wonkette In Your Pocket, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Went to a blogger meetup tonight in Stockton, CA; I met a bunch of great people and learned about some cool stuff that – by some divine miracle – I’ve survived this long without. Now that I’m home, all the information is racing around in my brain trying to decide what to do. So I’ve decided to watch The Fast and the Furious, and do a little exploration on Wonkette – a humorous political blog I was told about at the meetup. I checked it out, and just as I was told it would be, Wonkette is hilarious. If you’ve ever wondered what the Daily Show on crack would...
