adam lanza's motivations part III

when lanza massacred kids on newtown, ct. several years ago i blogged instantly- not waiting for reports or corroboration. to me it was clear what lanza was motivated by. killing his mother in bed 1st is always key to the shooter's grievances. he was a typical parent killer.

Actors Were Warned Senior Bush Gets Pretty Handsy

Actors Were Warned Senior Bush Gets Pretty Handsy:  Following actress Heather Lind’s groping revelation, another woman came forward to claim she was also groped by former President George H.W. Bush, prompting “Hunchback of Notre Dame” cast members to divulge that actors were actually warned beforehand that the former president could get “handsy.”  Handsy?  I’ll say!  Hell, its beginning to sound like George H.W. Bush is actually short for “George Hands Wander…

A few weeks ago, the BLP and I took a short trip to the Washington Coast. You may have seen my mention of it in my last post, called September At the Beach.  If you don't want to go see the post here is what I said:

Ain't That A Shame

Antoine Dominique Domino Jr. has moved on to provide the heavens with a stroll and shuffle beat.

Known as Fats Domino, his sound out of New Orleans was the inspiration to far too many musicians to name. I remember being about 6 years old, spinning my brother's 45's and knowing this was so different as to defy description.

Always a charmer and a pleasant man, he was feared to have died in Katrina. He lived through it and the devastation to the 9th Ward, but his…

I have a deep interest in some…
