When we are still literally cleaning up the site of the last US mass shooting, in Orlando, and now there is another horrible one in Dallas, think it’s pretty safe to say this country has a gun problem.
Sadly, anyone but me in the “old enough/young enough” demographic to have (barely) remembered another terrible shooting day in Dallas? And to have figured that would have been the only actual killing day the city was known for?
A Delta Air Lines flight carrying 130 passengers landed at the wrong airport in South Dakota last night. Shocking. There is more than one airport in South Dakota?
Mets manager Terry Collins has replaced Madison Bumgarner, who is starting Sunday with Bartolo Colon on the All-Star team.
So did Collins pick Colon for his arm or his bat?
(for non-baseball fans, Crawford hit a home run, after the “incident.”)
The A’s Coco Crisp was suspended one game for tossing his bat in the direction of the home plate umpire last night, and he’s not appealing: “You never want to make contact with the umpire..It came too close. I deserved it.” Responsibility, what a concept.
A fan climbing on the bleachers at Wrigley Field during a rain delay was taken to the hospital last night when he fell and landed on the warning track. His condition and name are unknown. But I might hazard a guess as to whether alcohol was involved. #Darwin
Taj Hotels are advertising free wifi on up to four devices. Scary thing is that there are travelers who probably think that isn’t enough.
follow up joke from my funny friend Alex Kaseberg. “Taj Hotels are advertising free wifi on up to four devices. Scary thing is that there are travelers who probably think that isn’t enough.”
So whatever “side” you’re on, not exactly fair to claim that killers of other races, political persuasion or religion are inflamed by angry rhetoric, but killers of your own demographic are mentally ill.
Corey Stewart, Donald Trump’s Virginia campaign chairman, and a GOP gubernatorial candidate “Liberal politicians who label police as racists — specifically Hillary Clinton and Virginia Lt. Governor Ralph Northam — are to blame for essentially encouraging the murder of these police officers tonight.”
But of course Trump’s rhetoric doesn’t encourage anyone to do bad things. #sarcasm
Apparently the single winning ticket for the $450 million Mega Millions jackpot tonight was sold in Indiana. No word on the lucky guy or gal, who presumably will be using the winnings to move out of Indiana.
Newt Gingrich tonight to CNN: “It took me a long time, and a number of people talking to me through the years to get a sense of this, if you are a normal white American, the truth is you don’t understand being black in America.”
So is this Newt’s way of taking himself out of Trump’s potential VP consideration?
Donald Trump said today our nation has become too divided.” Waiting for tomorrow’s speech when he returns to attacking the media, liberals, immigrants, Muslims, etc. and insulting anyone else who doesn’t agree with him.
As scary as Donald Trump is, some of the comments on his FB page are much worse: Many blame ALL of the killings on President Obama., some even saying Dallas was orchestrated by the CIA or the administration or liberals to stir up unrest and/or impose martial law.
John McCain had a great moment in his campaign where he corrected a woman who went over the edge on Obama. Guessing we can wait a long while before the Donald might do that with some of his followers.
