Franklin School Massacre and silence from D.C.

A full 10 hours have passed by without any significant response from anyone in national government. The Governor of Pennsylvania issued a statement, but crickets can still be heard from on higher..
Of course Jay Carney did say that Barack and Michelle are “sending prayers.”  To me that seems as meaningless as the people on Facebook who ‘send prayers’ in comments on a post..
If this was gun violence, a bigger response would have been heard.
I think it’s time to stop judging crime based on the weapon picked.. I think it’s time to figure out why the kids aren’t alright…
Let’s see what prescriptions our still unnamed sophomore from the Franklin Regional high school was taking..
CNN story also describes how some students react to the chaos, stabbings. One student said that she heard a commotion the longer, and thought it was a fight. And she saw blood spurting and stabber run..
It sounds like true Scenicpark, worse most likely than even harder movie that has plagued theaters.
Emergency management officials have also said the principal had an altercation of some sort the boy, that the stabbings took place in the classroom and hallway, and that the school resource officer was the one who eventually handcuffed the sophomore after he stabbed at least 20 people ages 14 through 60..



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
