*If you’re left-handed, like me, you’ve probably heard many of the myths attached to it. Some studies, though unproven, have even claimed lefties are more likely to develop conditions like dyslexia, ADHD, and psychological issues as severe as schizophrenia (damn!); and if you go way back, to the Middle Ages, when ANY differences were given the side-eye, lefties were associated with “the devil” and witchcraft. Heck, even as late as the 20th Century, lefties were forced to write with their right hand. Hmm…I think I remember this happening to me.
On the other hand, now that a lot of those myths have been debunked, and replaced by more recent FACTS (OK, ok. I may be a bit biased) that say southpaws have a greater capacity to think broadly, which makes for a great presidential quality; and we’re better in bed.
*They teach our children, give us anesthesia before surgery, and apparently, run for office…and even win. I’m talking about Ku Klux Klan members (and their supporters) folks.
Case in point: Three former prison guards in Florida; who also happened to be members of the KKK, were tricked during an elaborate sting into thinking that the Black man they were plotting to murder upon his release, had already been killed.
Now we know these “members” in general are not smart people, so it probably wasn’t a difficult task to bamboozle them.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
The murder plot involving Elliot Moran, 49, and Charles Thomas Newcomb, 45, came about after a third guard, 27-year-old Thomas Jordan Driver (another Klan member), was bitten during a fight with the inmate. The three guards believed the inmate was infected with HIV and hepatitis and enlisted the services of an FBI informant to murder the man.Continue reading →

For consideration, your materials MUST be in prior to the September 1, 2017 deadline.
*If you never subscribed to the belief that if it ain’t your time to die, no matter what happens, you just ain’t gonna go — well, Doug Bergeson of Wisconsin has proof that should leave no doubt.
Bergeson had been working on framing in a fireplace at his home near Peshtigo in northeast Wisconsin, when his nail gun accidentally fired, and a nail ricocheted off a piece of wood and went straight into his chest.
Now that right there could’ve spelled the end, but it was obviously NOT time for the man to go.
If doesn’t even sound like he freaked out at all. Instead, he reportedly walked calmly to his truck (arguably in shock), got in and drove himself to the hospital. He then parked his pickup truck in the lot and walked into the emergency room.
I can only imagine other people in the waiting room, seeing him, mouths agape, stepping out of the way to allow him access to the front of the line.

*In a case of whose dog is it, a woman and a man are fighting over ownership of a cute little poodle. In a recent episode of ‘Judge Judy,’ TV magistrate Judith Sheindlin put her no nonsense approach to the test…again.
A video recap shows a woman who says she legally purchased the dog, and a male opposing litigant who says the dog is his. In an attempt to get to the bottom of this quickly, Judy tells a woman in the court to bring the little dog in.
She does so, amidst the oohs and aahs from people seated in the courtroom.
*I Love Lucy was one of the funniest TV shows ever. The black-and-white series originally ran from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957 on CBS and it was the first scripted television show shot on 35mm film before a live studio audience. The show garnered five Emmys.
According to FilmMakerIQ.com each show included 300 viewers from the first shoot until the last, and there were many “one take” scenes.
Later, Desi Arnaz, the real life husband of Lucille Ball, revealed the comedic actress works better when real people are watching her performance.
Everyone watched I Love Lucy — no matter what race or culture — we loved the shenanigans of that crazy redhead and the frustrations and gentle reprimands of her handsome, Latin musician-husband, Ricky Ricardo.
But did you know that ‘Ricky Ricardo’ was not the original name the network came up with for Lucy’s hubby?
Uh-uh. They had something else in mind.
Do you think we would’ve felt the same about this Latin lover if his character was named Larry Lopez?
Let me get that for you…
