Take a bite out of this?
St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman says he is banning Donald Trump from his city “until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps.”
Not often do I say this but, “well played, Florida.”
Now, back to the usual Sunshine State items: A Florida burglary suspect who apparently was partially eaten by an alligator while trying to avoid police by hiding in a pond – the alligator ended up being euthanized by police. Really? Shouldn’t the gator have been rewarded for helping law enforcement?
Think maybe we can convince George Zimmerman some kid wearing a hoodie is hiding in a Florida pond? #gatorpower
One of the quotes of the day: “This whole notion that somehow we need to say no more Muslims — and just ban a whole religion — goes against everything we stand for and believe in.” Another commie-pinko liberal railing against Donald Trump?
Actually, the quote is from Dick Cheney.
Another thought on Donald Trump’s idea to ban all Muslims entering the U.S. Uh, names don’t always indicate religion – my husband, for example has the last name Schwartz and was raised Catholic. And plenty of people convert. So what does the Donald propose? A Bible test at the border?
Monday’s nonstop Air France flight bound from San Francisco to Paris on was diverted to Montreal because of a bomb threat that turned out to be a false alarm. The plane continued on to Paris in the morning.
So now passengers are focused on the important things – like “Do we get extra frequent flier miles for this?”
Good to see someone associated with the NCAA has a sense of humor. Football games between BYU and Utah are referred to as “The Holy War.” And this year the two teams are playing in the Royal Purple Bowl, played in Las Vegas.
Although to be fair, there’s a lot of praying over games in Vegas.
Douglas Tompkins, 72, who founded North Face clothing, died of hypothermia after his kayak capsized in southern Chile. So did Mother Nature finally decide to enact some karmic revenge on Tompkins for all the people his products kept protected from weather?
ABC is remaking Dirty Dancing with a three-hour TV movie. Well, that ought to go about as well as the Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood. #isnothingsacred?
In Fremont, California, police were called when an injured man climbed out of a garbage truck. Apparently he had fallen asleep in a trash bin and survived two compaction cycles. “Missed it by that much,” said Darwin
So maybe it wasn’t all his immigrant wife’s fault: CNN is reporting that investigators now think the American-born San Bernandino shooter may have also planned a 2012 attack with someone else, but “got spooked” and abandoned it.
From Christopher Green, one of my friends up North – “Canada is already committed to 25,000 Syrian refugees in the next few months. I’m not sure that we’ll also be able to accommodate all the American refugees next November if Trump wins.”
