*Damn, she doesn’t look crazy! Can we be honest for a sec? I already know that after looking at Christy Sheats (above), a beautiful blonde green-eyed woman from an area in Fort Bend County, Texas, who shot her two adult daughters dead before police took her life, that this was no doubt the first thought that entered your head.
It was the first thought that entered mine.
Police say Sheats had a history of mental illness, and they had been to her home on several occasions.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Caitilin Espinosa didn’t provide any details, but did tell PEOPLE, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office had been to Christy Sheats’ home “for previous altercations” involving Sheats’ “mental crisis.”
*You need help carrying your bags? Chauncey Jones Black said something to this affect, when he offered to carry a man’s bags at a Memphis Krogers store he had taken the bus across town to …in hopes of getting someone from “the rich people’s Kroger” on Highland to buy him something to eat. The “something” he hoped for was a bag of donuts.
No telling how often young Mr. Jones depended on this strategy but…
Today was his lucky day.
He met Matt White.
Chauncey, as it turns out, lives with his mother; and the two of them were living in hard times. According to NewsOne, Black had told White that coming to the store was the only chance for him (and his mother) to eat that day.
White, a man with rock-star looks (not the drugged out kind), not only accepted the 16-year-old’s offer, but got to know him as the two of them shopped for food.Continue reading →
*With the recent massacre in Orlando, discussions about gun control are at an all-time high. People are fairly passionate, I have friends who are polarized on the issue, and I lean towards the “there’s no place for guns in a modern, civilized society” camp. Others say that responsible gun owners have a place in modern society.
I’m sure members of James Baker’s family are having second thoughts about that.
Baker used to own a gun shop in Amelia, Ohio. His former shop used to hold regular firearm safely classes.
*Lordy. Lordy. Lordy. And his precious jewel ain’t raw yet? I’m sorry, but this is the first thought that comes to mind as I read about a man who loves “making women so happy” that he spends most of his life going into the bathrooms of stores that you and I frequent (Target, Starbucks) to masturbate and put the results in little cups welcomed by the anxious hands of grateful women who long to have children, but can’t afford the expense of sperm banks.
Meet 40-year-old Ari Nagel, a not-bad-looking-at-all Jewish man, who has proudly sired 23 children (over the past 18 years) with women of every race, sexual orientation and hell, you name it!
But Roxanne Nagel, the sista he has been married to for 12 years and sired three children ages 2-12 with — the one whose communal income has surely been tapped to help with the child support payments (Nagel says although the women agree not to sue him when they begin the strange relationship, five of them have… successfully) has never been on board with his contributions.
When an article initially came out inThe Postpublicizing the CUNY Kingsboro math professor’s um…donations, the publication caught up with Mrs. Nagel (scroll down to see her) outside of the couple’s home, the only thing she would say is, “I have nothing to say. What’s done is done.” Continue reading →
*Hell! I guess this makes me “devil’s advocate,” but I doubt the offer to speak on this landed in my lap accidentally. I speak for many when I say sincerely that our hearts continue to ache over the senseless death of little Lane Graves, 2, who drowned as a result of being attacked by an alligator as he sat playing in his playpen near the water at Disney’s Seven Seas Lagoon in Orlando. His precious little life had merely begun before it was snatched away and our world is all the worse for it.
After all, many of us are still having overactive heart palpitations over the near-death experience of little Isaiah Dickerson, 3, who, only last month, fell into the pit where a gorilla named “Harambe” lived at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Onlookers watched in horror as the beast at one point seemed to be undecided about what to do with the little “one of them” who appeared in pictures in the initial stages of the drama to look up at his hugeness, with his little hands touching the beasts arms, before it took the kid and dragged him through the water like a rag-doll.
The public was outraged when ultimately, the beast had to be killed to spare the life of the child.
But before we go forward, let me say this. Final results notwithstanding,the “pink elephant in the room” shows the only differences between these two precious human lives was race. The bigger difference was reactions from the media and an angry public. Continue reading →
*Remember your mother telling you to make sure you have clean underwear on before you leave the house? (Don’t front. I’m not the only one whose mamma had to tell them that!) Well, mom’s advice was good but a tad incomplete.
Let me add to it: make sure you leave your chastity belt at home.
*I’d hate to believe, after the fatal attack on little Lane Graves, that an employee at Disney once referred to an alligator on the property as a “resident pet.” But according to David Hiden, the father of a little boy who he saved from a potential alligator attack on Disney’s property last year, that’s exactly what happened.
Mr. Hiden told CNN News-Live that his son had a “close call” with a gator last year. In fact, he said that when his son was playing near the water, he looked out and saw two alligators making a bee-line towards him. That’s when Hiden says he jumped into motion; grabbing his kid, and running around the property looking for a manager.
But Hiden, who had video and photos of the gators, says he was shocked and couldn’t believe her response. Continue reading →
It’s a refrain that’s been used — and heard — for generations in the UK, and Queen Elizabeth II is one of history’s most beloved world leaders. But today, I’m wondering when the old girl, 90, might kick the bucket — or at least abdicate her throne. Maybe just live out the rest of her days as a great-grandma.
I’m kidding. Kinda.
I certainly don’t wish Queen Elizabeth II any ill will, but her grandson, the Duke of Cambridge, has an agenda that I like a whole lot.
