There are time you need to take news online with a grain of salt. And if it's from the ONION you should just laugh, and not spread the headlines as though they're true..

So when I read this SMOKING GUN story about a federal worker who was reprimanded for farting too much, I could not help but first think it was a joke. However, sadly in a way, as the story went on and copies of documents were referenced, it became clear that the Social Security Administration employee from Baltimore, really could not control his flatuence.

But the story of the man gets weirder.. According to a reprimand letter, he created a hostile working environment because of his repeated passages of wind.

And the office co-workers didn't think grin and bear it.. No, they recorded the times and dates when he flatuated (is that a word?) ..

Now picture your own office, or workplace.. Picture a co-worker next to you breaking wind every half hour or so.. How long until you start keeping "documenation" on all of the times he farted in your space? Well, according to the SMOKING GUN expose, this SSA employee had 17 incidents on September 19, according to records kept by employees. And he even broke wind during a May 18 performance discussion!

There is now a legal fight taking place over the reprimand.. I don't know how much further the public will be udpated on the farting government worker. But every time I see my social security deduction on future paychecks, I'll raise a glass and bust an ass. Praise to the farting Social Security Worker! So misunderstood...

Another disgusting story about a shooting..
This time in rural Pennsylvania near Altoona..
Fox News reports:
A man fatally shot a woman decorating for a children's Christmas party at a tiny church hall and killed two men elsewhere in a rural central Pennsylvania township Friday before he was fatally shot in a gunfight with state troopers.

So far it appears the shooter had no relationship with the victims..

THE END OF TIME. NOT SO MUCH.

The end is the end is the beginning. Sure some schools closed fearing the end of time rumors, and yes a prowl took place in NYC of people seeking last minute sex.. But what happened? Winter arrived across the globe, the current calender switched to December 21 and the Mayan's calender ended. And we're still standing. Will NASA's phone lines be free for calls now?

Fox News reports that Adam Lanza feared being committed, causing him to snap

According to the FOX NEWS report tonight, Lanza feared his mother was going to commit him...

FOX reports:
Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims' families worship.

Score one for Anonymous

The group plans to 'destroy' the Westboro Baptist Church over its plans to picket the funerals of kids who were killed in Connecticut.

I know a lot of law-enforcement people don't like this group anonymous on the Internet, maybe this time they should just be allowed to just do what they're going to do..

A nightmare before Christmas


The President of the United States delivered a monumental speech last night during a vigil in Newtown, Connecticut. He was emotional. He seemed real. And he somehow was able to get back that old aura like he had during speeches in the past. He is a great orator. During this tragic situation, we need that. Sure, we need action, too.. but since action is so debatable, right now oration will due.. He invoked Jesus and children going to him.. then went on to name all of the children, by first name, who were gunned down by shooter Adam Lanza.

The world is beginning to know a little more about Mr. Lanza, and his mother. One story in UK media accuses his mom of being a hoarder worrying about the end of the world coming, or at least some type of end of the world-lite crisis. We don't know much about him just yet, besides the occasional news media story of him being in a high school tech club, having emotional issues, playing video games. We do know, from various reports, that his mother took him to shooting ranges allowing him to practice his shots. Shots that would eventually change a small town and perhaps the nation...

I think there was a certain shroud of sadness across the Christmas landscape this weekend. I wrote about my trip to my local mall last Friday night. It was quiet and silent.. in parts you can hear a pin drop. I went, again, to another shopping center last night. While the crowd was in its typical rush for last minute gifts, there wasn't much fun in the shopping experience. We all know what we are all thinking, We all have those children's souls in our minds.  I think there's a strong change that many across this country had nightmares. Perhaps the President himself.

We may all disagree on gun control issues. We can all have a certain point of view regarding mental health and how state and federal governments should deal with issues relating to it. And we may also all have varying beliefs when it comes to the national 'morals'.. But suddenly we all have one thing in common: We weep for the souls who perished last Friday in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Stories of heroism among the faculty make our eyes water.. but those awful stories of children being gunned down by a maniac in the school make us tremble in sadness and be silent in grief.

While Obama may have a master orator, there are still few words that can do much healing. Instead it the healing will come over time. It may never actually happen.. but families will come to grips with the scope of their loss. This Christmas has been ruined. I am guessing for hundreds of people, future Christmases will never get better. So many families that were planning happy and peaceful Christmases. Now they are planning somber funerals for lives gone too young.

The Lanza family will now be greeting this Christmas with loss, and perhaps shame. Their name now forever marked by the horror that were perpetrated and saddened by the loss of another...

We may have all been forever changed by this tragic shooting. But we don't quite yet know how we've been changed. 

A range of emotions has taken over ... but we don't know what is flowing through our veins more: Anger, sadness, or a melancholy feeling that something has been lost in this country--what? we don't know yet. It's too soon to understand the blaze of feelings .. 

I cannot even imagine the pain, the ungodly pain, facing these families right now in Connecticut. 

I despise any person who steals the innocence of another. This situation is all the worse. Not only was innocence taken of the deceased, but the living will now keep this horrid memory in their minds for a lifetime ...

We all may feel sadness and anger.. But we also collectively feel disgust. Disgust that someone can do this. Disgust that it happened.
We may have all cried out to God this weekend. Maybe some of us lost faith, or others were comforted by it. I don't know.
It's too soon to know.

We just know that something is different. And Christmas will never be the same.

A must read from WIRED

WIRED reports:
In a secret government agreement granted without approval or debate from lawmakers, the U.S. attorney general recently gave the National Counterterrorism Center sweeping new powers to store dossiers on U.S. citizens, even if they are not suspected of a crime, according to a news report.

Total information awareness indeed ..

Emotional portraits of victims of Sandy Hook massacre being painted..
A teacher hid her children in a bathroom wanted to be the last thing they heard..

Have you noticed some of the coverage on news stations of this massacre? I know I am getting a little ill thinking of newsfolks running in a feeding frenzy to get a story, abandoning principal and shoving a mic into a little crying kid's face asking what happened in the school. It's to the point where cops are guarding the families. And even more than that, the real news (not the blogosphere) got the shooting suspect's name wrong, ran with it, and even published Ryan Lanza's Facebook photo quickly just to get the scoop. Trouble was, as we know now, he didn't do it. His brother did..

Last night on Coast to Coast AM, John B Wells hosted and seemed to get welled up with emotion when he spoke about this tragic situation. He become angry though speaking about media coverage, saying it does not honor a child to report how many bullets the body was riddled with. How true that is.

The story is troubling. No many how it is covered, someone may get angry. But it's so sensitive, especially with such little angels of a tender age being slaughtered, that we need to be a little cautious in the hunt for the quick story..
