I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that this wasn't "unusual activity" for this guy. Sometimes it's just your time to go.

NK

Quoting from an Insurance professor of mine -- Maximillian Pock-- "This is known as coming and going at the same time."

Dave (in MA)

Night-time would find me in the Red Parrot;
Music would play and Felina would whirl

Melinda Romanoff

"Film maker remains Prime Suspect."

They left that out.

OTOH, Alan, bravo, OTOH, what were you thinking in the first place;

Janet

Sultan Knish tears apart algore...nice.

"While his rival was getting tangled in Iraq, Al Gore was becoming the Giorgio Armani of environmentalism. And environmentalism was much bigger than men's coats or women's shoes. It was a lifestyle, a cause and a movie deal. It was everything."

and this is good -
"Communism criminalized commerce and then legalized it on its terms. Environmentalism criminalizes life and legalizes it on its terms."

NK

OT-- One small Connecticut Town's response to the Newtown Ct massacre. I think the Ed Superintendent's thinking is sober and responsible, in view of the fact the Police Dept. is no more than 1.5miles from any school-- an armed police response to the invader nightmare is 5 minutes drive max to any school. Interesting that the BOE knows that the real danger is the emotionally deranged kids in the schools. http://darien.patch.com/articles/darien-schools-reviewing-safety-protocols-in-wake-of-newtown-tragedy

Did Robert Gene White have an ETB card on his person?

narciso

They will eventually convict the Korean fellow, as they did Loughner, but only after a 'decent interval'

NK

Ban Korean students!

Captain Hate

Those AP simpletons never learn because their final poll has ND in front of Georgia and Texas A&M. Newsflash: Notre Dame would finish no higher than fourth in either the SEC East or West.

From ND Nation:

NK

What's up T'eo-- you forget how to tackle, or were you just an ND media machine invention from the beginning?... It's a rhetorical question.

Captain Hate

T'eo translated is Brian Bosworth

narciso

Ok, that made things less clear, how long has Bosworth been out of the game?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Brian Bosworth. Every time I hear that fool's name I enjoy a vision of Bo Jackson steam rolling him.

Melinda Romanoff

And someone's IP is already in the Narcisolator, FYI.

narciso

And he made some solid choices, when he left the game, wasn't he in Hard Target or some such;

In Massachusetts, no less!

Captain Hate

how long has Bosworth been out of the game?

Since 1989

narciso

I was looking at Alabama's schedule, this last year, Godzilla couldn't have done better.

NK

CH-- interms of the PR-- yes T'eo is Bosworth. Obviously, a different approach-- "The Boz" nonsense was the 'badboy' white guy-- motorcycle gear, warpaint and the mohawk, and T'eo is the ND 'goodguy' imagery. That said, T'eo does seem like a really good kid who has bought into the whole ND student experience, but he'll be NO star in the NFL. Back up LB and special teamer. I do wish him luck.

narciso

As per the previous link, what Sheriff Duffuss wasn't available?

Clarice

Isn't Sultan Knish wonderful?

"
when it came time to pay the dancers, he was unresponsive." Isn't that so typical of men?

Threadkiller

I had no idea El Paso could be so much fun.

Zoltan

Died with a smile on his face.

matt

is suffocation a natural cause?

Melinda Romanoff

Is NTSA looking into this horrible boating accident?

Captain Hate

NK, he might be a good guy, in "real life", but he's been hyped by the ND PR machine which gets old quick. If clown cars like ESPN didn't shove them down my throat 24/7 I'd cut them more slack. But when they get slattered by, as I'm sure Beasts would agree, Saban's least impressive Tide champeenship team, it's last laugh time which I'll make the most of.

Threadkiller

He stiffed her...

Considering Notre Dame, barely showed up, I guess it was the only thing he felt interested in commenting on;

A Cautionary Tale Tail

Stephanie

Dang . guess I should read before commenting . sorry Mel . great minds think alike . :)

NK

Narc-- there's a creepy old man living in Weston Ct... that's for sure. You know, I almost started to like Brent MuFFburger for the first time a couple of year's back when a LL World series team from his tiny hometown (Wyoming?) made it to Williamsport. Brent's dad had founded LL in that town over 60 years ago. It was a neat story. Brent.. to the scrap heap with you.

narciso

How about, think before you eat, I mean spout off:

http://dailycaller.com/2013/01/08/christie-walks-back-boehner-criticism/

GMax

The news report left out that coroner reporting that the man died with a large smile on his face...

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I have to agree with CH on Brent Mussberger and McCarron's girlfriend.
I half expected to see Brent wearing just a raincoat and a smirk when they put the camera on him.

Captain Hate

I think Brent was getting seriously Moellered when it became obvious that the money he surely had on ND was going tits up.

GMax

If you send Musberger to retirement you will be left with the insufferably preachy Bob Costas...

marlene

On topic and for inquiring minds, the recent edition of Vanity Fair has a story about the Kennebunk Zumba "instructor."

Captain Hate

Well they're on different networks and Costas does commentary while Brent does play by play. Teh World's Leader in Sports Entertainment Broadcasters have plenty of good play by play guys who could do a better job imo. Brad Nessler comes to mind.

They must believe that people like Brent's shtick. I have at least one friend who feels that way.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I actually like him early in his career, but maybe all those years associating with Jack Whittaker trying to make sports into some heroic, maudlin endeavor rather than a bunch of guys playing with balls that turned him from a pro into kind of a sentimental sap.

Captain Hate

Broadcasters == Broadcasting

NK

Gmax-- we can only solve one media problem at time;

Ig-- Brent in raincoat and smirk--- heh!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Clinton learned his lesson in 1994 about grounding his ship on the shoals of gun control.
Apparently Barry is intent on learning the same lesson as The White House Just Set Gun Rights Activists Ablaze.

NK

Ig-- Barry I doesn't care. It's all Left, all anti-american, ALL the time for Barry I from here on out.

Katherine Webb

"They must believe that people like Brent's shtick."

Bleechh! He's a dirty old man who needs to stop thinking with his shriveled up shtick.

narciso

I remarked on her, in a LUN, in an oblique way.

NK

Guns: the ESPN show about the Southside ChiTown basketball star killed by .22 in 1984 was just infuriating. So much talent wasted in ChiTown and dozens of other cities by young men with guns and no brains, and their senseless deaths manipulated for self-gain by so many media and political phonies. Jesse Jackson and Rev Al were historically at the top of that list. Just infuriating.

NK

Katherine Webb@11:02-- Heh!

GMax

There is not going to be any gun control legislation signed into law. Look at Heidi Heiktcamp for how this is going to go even in the Senate. Much whining from Al Franken types to necessarily ensue...

narciso

Speaking of Creepy Weasels, David Letterman. . .

Thomas Collins

Dave(in MA), Rocco and DGS: I think a thorough investigation needs to be conducted on whether being a grindee is hazardous to your health. Let's start our inquiry. I'll take Foxy Brockton, King Arthur's, Foxy Providence, Cheaters and Club Fantasies, and the three of you can divvy up the rest.

Captain Hate

In Brent's defense, if he was Al Roker he'd be talking about how many loads he blew while staring at AJ McCarron's girl friend. TMI Al.

NK

Creepy Weasels?.. well at least creepy weasel Letterman can be a creep in the privacy of his own vast estate: http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/david-lettermans-house/view/?service=1

matt

Brent Musberger, Bob Costas, and don't forget our favorite cross dresser, Marv Albert. Driving in this morning I was thinking of that drunken network bimbo a few weeks and, and then Letterman comes into the discussion.

These are the opinion makers and myth builders, and they're a bunch of damned freaks.

Captain Hate

I like Marv Albert; he may be a bit weird with dumpy skeevs but his basketball play by play is top notch imo.

narciso

Confederacy of Weasels, matt, Letterman comes up, because he admitted to Oprah, that he was a duplicitous nazgul, in his phony apology.

Janet

In Brent's defense, if he was Al Roker he'd be talking about how many loads he blew while staring at AJ McCarron's girl friend. TMI Al.

hahahaahaha!!...oh my goodness. It has all gotten too weird....

Danube of Thought

Ban lap dances.

Jack is Back

NK,

Billings, Montana not Wyoming.

Brent met his Waterloo back in the day when only CBS brought the NFL games. He did the pregame show and became insufferable (at least to me). CBS canned him for James Brown I believe or it could have been a transition personality. When he hosted The NFL Today show he got into a bar fight with Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder but it was later that CBS fired him.

Have Blue

There was (may still be) a club in Southington CT called the Blue Parrot. Exotic avians s

NK

Billings--- sounds right. The 70s CBS NFL pre-game was just dreadful. Brent, Jimmy the Greek, the babe from Kentucky and Irv -- straightman-- Cross. Just dreadful

NK

A shoutout for Southington CT! I don't know the Blue Parrot, but I made dozens of stops at the TA off I84 for reasonably priced fuel during the 4 years I made regular trips to the fancy HS my daughter attended.

Janet

they're a bunch of damned freaks.

...the other funny story along those lines is we've got Charlie Sheen telling on a politician.
"L.A. Mayor LYING
We Partied for Hours"

How low can we go?


James D.

These are the opinion makers and myth builders, and they're a bunch of damned freaks.

Truer words were never spoken.

NK

Matt@11:28 is spot on.

jimmyk

Re Letterman, I had the misfortune of seeing the last 30 seconds of Charlie Rose fawning over him while channel-surfing last night. Fortunately my dinner had been digested already. Apparently Letterman had more or less admitted he'd been hooked on pain killers. Somehow that evokes a different response from Limbaugh's admission.

Danube of Thought

The armed citizen: pistol-packing geezer drills thugs.

She bot a luau!

Oh, boy, let's see if I can go find it. We were discussing something or other @ Judy's and Max Anacker came across with a ditty about a dancer and a bear, and I hopped right into the lap of a fine bit of doggeral. I think it's in the fat thread, L!inked U!nder N!ame.
============

Captain Hate

the babe from Kentucky and Irv -- straightman-- Cross.

Phyllis George. I liked Irv but it was obvious he was on there for 2 reasons and one of them was that he was a former player.

Barber shop hair dancers.

Yes, about halfway down, here's manacker:

A shapely pole dancer named Claire
Discussed jobs with a large dancing bear.
"The pay here is fair",
Said Claire to the bear,
"But I cannot bear dancing bare."

To which I replied:

'Hair, hair' said the bear,
'Suffices to wear.
Take your fair share
And put some more there.'

Captain Hate

Apparently Letterman had more or less admitted he'd been hooked on pain killers. Somehow that evokes a different response from Limbaugh's admission.

Were the pain killers responsible for him banging the staff, something that Rush has never done but catches a lot of grief from the leftoids over his multiple marriages.

Danube of Thought iPad

That program was unwatchably horrible. The Greek was just embarrassing. Awful.

NK

CH-- Phyllis George-- thanks. Wasn't her Gov husband involved with the Lum's food chain in the 60s-70s. Beer steamed hotdogs-- yum.

Jane:  Mock the Media

Peter,


That was my first thought too.

Jack is Back

DoT,

Internet Cafes in Florida are not what most people think they are but are legalized gambling dens. Lot of money changes hands but via credit and debit cards not cash.

Looking for a neat Anti-Gun Control argument?

I like this guys video.

Captain Hate

John Y Brown iirc. I remember Lums.

Here's a HOF photoshop: http://minx.cc/?post=336394

Have Blue

NK, On Queen St (route 10). Think it has been closed for while now.

A lot of "gentlemens clubs" are barely disguised prostitution joints these days. Found a site that rates clubs and several comments indicate that dancers at the Red Parrot were in the habit of performing more than dances in the "lap" dance area.

(Interestingly they call it the 'Dirty Bird' in the local vernacular, which was the same name the Blue Parrot in Southington was known by.)

I kind of doubt the particulars of the managers story.

NK

JimmyK-- you watched Letterman AND charlie rose? you're a braver man than I could ever be. Didn't Charlie Rose just have to pay off some staffer her drooled on in settlement of a harassment suit?

Jane:  Mock the Media

Jimmy,

That bobcat attack was in the next town over from me. Sheesh!

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

How anyone watching the first half of the Alabama - ND game last night could put Notre Dame in the top 5 is seriously demented. I couldn't even watch the second half. The poor Domers didn't belong on the same field with the Tide.

Georgia (who gave Alabama all they wanted in the SEC Championship), Texas A&M (who beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and schooled Oklahoma), Clemson, LSU, Oregon, hell, even Northwestern, Nebraska or Wisconsin, would wipe the floor with ND.

NK

Narc-- did I remember right that Hubby Brown was involved with Lum's?

NK

The Bay State Bobcat-- no surprise Jane. Because we wuss's don't have any .22s in suburban Ct and Mass. the wildlife is flourishing. The moose are next!

Pink Flamingo.

There are a flock of a lot of Dirty Birds. I've flown by them everywhere.

Melinda Romanoff

Long LUN, kim....

Into each life a little unfairness must drop, sweetly, with the impact of 3/8 of an inch.

Hah, Henderson dropped to the floor, but did he drop the gun?
==========================

Jack is Back

Phyllis George was Miss America in 1971 and her husband John Y. Brown was Governor of Kentucky. Don't know about Lum's.

I know at one time she considered running against Mitch McConnell but someone injected some sanity into her mental considition.

Melinda Romanoff

And my attention span got Maxxed out.

NK

Narc-- a 1979 People Magazine profile of John Y Brown?-- how DO you find this stuff?!

BTW-- it's staggering seeing the numbers for "BIG" business in the 1960's-70's-- just tiny numbers. Securitized financing changed everything-- didn't it?

narciso

Two data points, Phyllis George, and Lums, the third link down, that one's fairly straight forward
