Political Prisoners

So which country has the most political prisoners?  Why, the good old US of A!

(Drug users are political prisoners.  Drug policy is political, not based on any violation of anothers’ rights, property or otherwise).

Makes you proud, doesn’t it?

Morgan Shepherd: Badass

Morgan Shepherd, a low funded 69 year old NASCAR Nationwide driver, showed he’s got some badass left in those old bones.

The veteran of 44 NASCAR seasons was getting out of his rental car in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart store Monday evening just minutes away from Las Vegas Motor Speedway just as three men burst from the store’s entrance with security forces trailing behind.

Thats when Shepherd, a daily jogger and fitness perfectionist, sprang into action.

“I just got out and took off after them,” Shepherd said. “I caught one of them just as they were getting ready to hop a little wall at the end of the parking lot. I yanked him down and got on top of him.”

Shepherd said in a matter of seconds a Las Vegas police officer pitched the ageless NASCAR driver a pair and handcuffs and continued pursuit of the other two suspects, along with the store’s security force.

“I cuffed him and sat on top of him,” Shepherd said. “The police department officers showed up and asked if I could hold him a while longer while they ran down the others. I told them he wasn’t going anywhere.”

Shepherd said while the young shoplifter pleaded with him to let him go and about the possibility of going to jail, Shepherd used the time to lecture the youth about his poor choices.

Awesome.  Here’s hoping I’m able to do the same thing at 69.

My Towson (State) University?

So, there’s a hubub because someone stole a bunch of Towerlight newspapers due to a controversial story regarding Resident Assistants who were caught drinking in a dorm room.

This is a controversial story?  Either “controversy” does not mean the same thing to me as it does to the staff at the Towerlight, or things have changed quite a bit at my alma mater since I graduated in 1992.

‘Cause when I went to Towson, drinking in an RA’s room would not have been controversial.  Not even a little bit.

Unplugging

I blogged about this in the past, and while I don’t follow the ‘Sabbath Manifesto‘ weekly, I do make an effort to unplug and slow down a little a few days a month.

Anyone participating in the National Day of Unplugging?  I think I might.


No Confidence

Remember Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA)? The fellow concerned that Guam would tip over?

I’m just catching up on some things… did you know he was re-elected in November?  That inspires confidence in the American voting public, doesn’t it?
