There are some endings that could not be scripted any better than if I wrote myself. In the case of Shawn Labeet, the scumbag who murdered a Miami Dade Police officer and seriously wounded three others, the ending was excellent. A police multi-task force cornered Labeet last evening and when he produced a pistol, they shot his ass, dead !
Labeet, who had additional ammunition clips and body armor, was obviously not willing to be taken alive. When he confronted the police, they fulfilled his wishes (and mine), saving the taxpayers the cost of clothing and housing him until his execution. As we say in baseball, no hits, no runs, and nobody left on base.
Speaking of assholes, O.J. Simpson has been detained in Las Vegas, allegedly for breaking into a hotel room, armed with a pistol, and stealing sports memorabilia. The other side of the story is that Simpson did not break into the room, rather, he entered the room to remove his memorabilia on a sale that didn't go through. I'll update this as more information comes in. In the interim, his book "If I Did It", now owned by the Goldman family, is due to be released today or tomorrow. I hope it sells a million copies !
My pal, Jackie, has nominated the six people in West Virginia (to be referred to hereinafter as the "West Virginia Six") for the "Cat's Ass Trophy" (CAT) award. The West Virginia Six kidnapped and brutally, sexually, assaulted a black woman. Allegedly, they also stabbed her four times, beat her severely and other horrors that are too disgusting to mention. I've seen pictures of the white suspects and they should be poster children for why you shouldn't marry your sister. I second the nomination !
It's Friday and I'm going to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe to see my pals ! My current plan for this evening is to take some more pictures so that I can combine them with the ones I have and show them to you next week. That's my current plan ! As you well know, sometimes the best laid plans of mice and men........ If my black pal, Johnny Walker, will just give me the least bit of assistance, I will carry the plan through until it's completion. He wasn't a big help Wednesday as Nicole and I didn't get home until the wee hours.
Odds and Ends: The proposed bill for unlimited access for Mexican truckers to the Unites States was shot down in Congress. Personally, I was for the bill with the proviso that the Mexican truckers be obligated to fill the semi with illegal aliens on their return trip to Mexico ! The constipated panel of judges on American idol, Simon, Randy and Paula, have offered to help Britney Spears rehabilitate herself. Imagine that, (Asshole) Simon, (no talent) Randy and poor, disturbed Paula helping Britney. And the hits just keep on coming............
The Pictures: Today's theme is the odd couple, the reason being is that CNN has been running a picture of a twelve week old baby macaque (it's a little monkey) that was abandoned by it's mother and was near death when found. It seems the little tot fell in love a white pigeon and the rest is history. I searched the web, high and low, so that I could show you the picture. That being the thought, I went through my pictures (now totaling 1,500+) to find similar pairings. The only exception is the picture of my brother Kirt's three ex-girlfriends. You'll be able to find them easy enough ! Hint: Their father was not an orthodontist, rather, a traveling salesman.
