Grandmother and Grandson found

May 27, 2011

Four-year-old Christian Longhurst and his 43-year-old grandmother Ramona McCoy Longhurst had disappeared for two days. No one knew where they were, and Christian’s mother was scared….The grandmother told detectives she just needed time to think.

I know, we mock Floridians constantly. Let’s be honest…they do some dumb shit. However, this site has never encouraged any of them to actually think. As you can see it is not safe for anyone involved.


Stupid is as Stupid Does

May 26, 2011

The New Orleans Police Department today suspended two officers:  Emelda Blanco, a 25-year-veteran of the force, and her son, a 3-year member of the NOPD.

In a press release, the NOPD says both “were arrested and booked today with one count of Simple Battery.”

According to spokesman Officer Hilal Williams, the two cops were arrested for their involvement in a “disturbance” early Sunday at Robertson’s Vieux Carre Lounge on Basin Street.

The mother and son crime-fighters reportedly instigated a fight that involved a security guard at the lounge.

Both are on suspension without pay “pending an investigation by the Public Integrity Bureau,” according to the news release.

The arrests and suspensions of the Blancos come on the same day that the NOPD fired a senior officer implicated in the Henry Glover case.

NOPD Captain Jeffery Winn, a 25-year veteran of the force, was fired “due to neglect of duty,” the police department said in a statement.

Winn commanded the New Orleans Police SWAT team and supervised two officers charged with burning the body of Henry Glover, a man shot by another NOPD officer after Hurricane Katrina.

Lady Gaga: When I’m not onstage, I feel dead

Not to be outdone by the Winfrey-palooza, Lady Gaga is still dropping memorable bon mots left, right and in this week’s Rolling Stone.

The superstar says she’s been really into “Rocky IV” lately, culling inspiration from the speech Apollo’s ex-trainer gives to the infamous boxer.

“My favorite part is when Apollo’s ex-trainer says to Rocky, ‘He is not a machine. He’s a man. Cut him, and once he feels his own blood, he will fear you.’ I know it sounds crazy, but I was thinking about the machine of the music industry,” Gaga told Rolling Stone. “I started to think about how I have to make the music industry bleed to remind it that it’s human, it’s not a machine.”

But, she says, please don’t confuse her actions as attempts to gain attention.

“I have attention,” she says in the interview. “Is it that you believe that I am attention-seeking or shock for shock’s sake, or is it just that it’s been a long time since someone has embraced the art form the way that I have? Perhaps it’s been a couple of decades since there’s been an artist that’s been as vocal about culture, religion, human rights, politics.”

Gaga continues, speaking directly to her critics, “I’m so passionate about what I do, every bass line, every EQ. Why is it that you don’t want more from the artist, why is it that you expect so little, so when I give and give, you assume it’s narcissistic?”

Keep all that in mind the next time you hear her say something like, “When I am not onstage, I feel dead,” as she does to Rolling Stone.

“Whether that is healthy or not to you, or healthy or not to anyone, or a doctor, is really of no concern to me. I don’t feel alive unless I’m performing, and that’s just the way I was born.”

Check out the full interview when the latest issue of Rolling Stone arrives on newsstands Friday.

My partner created a strange name.

He thinks Blogging is a game.

It might bring us fame,

But more likely shame,

My partner created a strange name.
