News In Brief (And The Usual Opinionated Commentary)

As you may have guessed, I have been at a full-speed run for the last few days (especially the last couple), so here are some things the PYY News Center have been following, when able to do so:

Nifong Resigns

"Throughout the years I have served as a prosecutor I have always tried to do the right thing," a tearful Mike Nifong said. "In this case, I was trying to do the right thing. Much of the criticism directed to me in the is case is justified. The allegations that I'm a liar, however, are not justified."

Well, we will let the decision-makers judge that. His willingness to resign (as admirable as it might be) is long overdue. His willingness to admit "some" mistakes is expected. He shouldn't hold back, he should just be honest. He should tell how he let the Black Panthers, Al and Jesse types, and hard radical (all men are pigs) feminists sway his judgment, all for the purpose of winning re-election.

I mean let's look at this a second. This guy may very well have been a decent prosecutor and a good lawyer. Maybe he's not a bad guy. I don't know, I cannot say for sure, I do not know him personally.

But as a public official he severely miscalculated some things, and some damned important ones too. Now, it's time to pay the piper and move on with life. And if I was him, I'd be ready to liquidate some assets to pay his attorney and the now cleared players that had their lives destroyed over this, so he could get a pension.

Abbas Appoints new PM

Ah, the peace-loving people of Hamas (Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, and other terror organizations too). The world cannot be so blind, as to not see who wants peace and who doesn't. Because from where I sit, this cannot be adequately defended, in any setting.

Hamas has shown the world that peace is not going to be easy, as long as the world tolerates these organizations doing whatever the hell they please. There will be no peace as long as there are nations, willing to arm these that hate peace. Until people are sick of dying and are not taught that Americans and Jews are Satan, there will be no chance at peace. None, nada, zilch, zero.

You can use the argument that we created this, but the fact remains there will be no peace until the organizations that hate peace stop loving war more.

NBA Season Ends

Being a Laker and Pacer fan, I have never been much of a Spurs fan. But hats off to them, they are the champs. They just had too many weapons for anyone to counter, this year. But more significant is the fact, I didn't watch one damned quarter of the NBA all year long. Not one.

I am tired of the thug mentality in the league, which has been permitted to exist. There was the Pacers brawl with Detroit, the Pacers and their affinity for getting into trouble in nightclubs after hours, and the fans from the All-Star game seeing the need to shoot up the town after its conclusion. That's enough for me. In addition to not watching one damned quarter, I spent not one damned dime on any damned NBA attire either.

Dolphins Found Shot In San Diego

Bastards!! Dolphins are one my favorite mammals.

So the NBA season is finally over. Who knew? I guess the pre-season camps begin, what, next month? :-)

Ditto on the Dolphins. Unless they were of the Navy variety I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill them. They smile.

There you go exaggerating again. Everyone knows it's two months away. ;)
