First, there's the escaped Arizona convict (there were three that escaped, and as of today...all are now caught). This third guy was on the run for two weeks roughly. What you came to learn....was that his 'help' in this episode....was a first cousin. In fact....she also had this romantic thing for him and they were pretty "close" (in Bama language....closer than close). The news media hasn't spoken much about this angle to the story....but I kept pondering over this. She's now got a minimum of ten years in prison....maybe more. And this was all about love and your cousin?
Second, another poll came out today to get people chatting. Six out of ten folks....now oppose the war. Yeah, that's pretty hefty odds. A poll that helps the President? Well....no.
Third. Representative Maxine Waters.....on the hot-seat for ethics issues. She came up today to say that this was a very "complicated case". The media took this and tried their best to explain the complicated nature. I pondered over this for thirty seconds. You go and run for seat in the House of Representatives. You win. You own lots of stock in one certain company. That company has various issues in their survival. They call you up. At that point....the last thing on Earth (ethically) that you can do, is personally get involved and introduce the losers to government folks who might be able to help. If you didn't own their stock....it'd be ok. Otherwise, it's not. And yes, that's the "complicated nature" and Maxine and the media want you to know about.
Fourth. Cops came to Quincy, VA. They ended up arresting Dad, Mom, son #1, son #2 and the daughter. All for meth possession. The kids were all over eighteen years old. The daughter apparently had a kid...which the county took possession of. Yeah, that's probably a record. The reporter didn't hint this....but I was pondering the likelihood of all five getting a minimum of twelve months in the same jail (the daughter probably gets the least out of all five).
