“A man shot and killed his neighbor’s pit bull after he says the dog attacked him. The man, who was not identified by police, was washing his car in his driveway … when the pit bull got out of its kennel and bit the man’s foot. The same dog had bitten the man’s wife in September, according to police…. He yelled for this wife to grab his gun, he kicked at the dog, and it took off running…. When the wife came back out of the house with the man’s handgun the dog tried to attack again, at which time he shot it…”
“A 36-year-old man was shot and killed Tuesday night while he was attempting to rob an elderly couple outside a Northwest Dallas grocery store, police say. The man, who has not been publicly identified, approached a man and a woman as they walked out of a grocery store and snatched a gold necklace from the woman’s neck, police said….

The man got in his car but died before fleeing, police said….”
“Police are investigating after a woman had to confront a naked man at gunpoint while he allegedly performed sexual acts on her pit bull….” [The woman fired a warning shot into the dirt and kept the man at bay as he threatened her, until police were able to arrive and arrest him.]
John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible. Instead, what ‘little evidence’ there is for rising global temperatures points to a ‘natural phenomenon’ within a developing eco-system. In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: ‘The ocean is not rising significantly. The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number. Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing). I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid.'”
“Pennsylvania state Rep. Marty Flynn (D-Luzerne) was reportedly walking home with fellow Democratic Rep. Ryan Bizzarro (D-Erie) on Tuesday night when they were confronted by an armed robbery suspect…. Flynn left the criminals stunned after he pulled out his own concealed handgun and opened fire. The Democrat reportedly continued to trade shots with the suspect, though no one was hit during the shootout….” [I wonder how Mr. Flynn has voted on Second Amendment issues? I sure as heck hope he votes for the Constitution, and that he is not another elitist that believes he and his privileged pals should be armed, while disarming us average folk…]
Before reading this book I think I was like many Americans when it came to knowledge of Lincoln’s assassination. I knew Lincoln was shot in the head by John Wilkes Booth at Ford’s Theater while attending a play. I knew Wilkes was eventually apprehended and shot. Beyond these basic facts, I really didn’t know much.
For those of you wondering what Manchuria has to do with Barack Obama, no, this book is not trying to prove Obama isn’t from Kenya.
A fact-filled history of WWII, but one that reads more like a literary masterpiece than a history text.
“Just after closing around 2:30 Saturday morning, four armed men barged in at [a Texas bar] demanding money…. Instead, a customer inside the bar … pulled out his gun and started exchanging fire with the robbers. He shot and killed two of them while the other two ran. Once the heated exchange ended, the patron left, too…. [A] longtime customer said that the patron who killed the robbers always stays until closing to walk the female bartenders to their cars. The friend said the man would never start anything, but would always protect his friends….”
