Saturday morning cartoons

The freakin' weekend here..
Enjoy the time you have.
Before rolling through the day, here's a few headlines of importance from the world at large..

Wars and rumors of war: Israel strikes Gaza mosque..

Ghost tours on steroids in Kentucky, as developers are going to turn an old tuberculosis hospital where thousands of people died into a hotel and convention center.. It's called the Waverly Hills. The official website for the attraction calls it the most haunted place on earth. That's quite a statement--but undoubtedly lots and lots of people would book their rooms and love to stay for a weekend.. Here is the Waverly Hills Sanitorium Facebook page..

On a site note, turning former hospitals of death and distress into haunted locations for profit has not been something I typically favor. I wrote a scathing article on Pennhrust last year .. Looking back, perhaps I wasn't completely fair to them, or others who do the same, as long as the owners preserve the history of the location and respect the dead. . But deep down, there's something in my that tingles when I hear of a location where so much grief occurred will now be a place for people wearing ridiculous outfits to go and have a 'fun night out' .. I will stop now or this will turn into another lenghtly post..

 

CDC, what the hell are you doing? First the mishandling of anthrax and now the bird flu? Some may say you're doing it on purpose..

For anyone paying any attention to the Atlantic City scene, there's something very important happening: Casinos are shutting down. The unheard of fact is becoming very commonplace, the elderly are drying up (no pun intended) and the tourism is suffering. Plus casinos in Pennsylvania, right near me, now attract those seniors who once went on three hour bus tours to the Jersey shore.. The latest casino to close looks to be Trump Plaza--and this is the fourth! There's something inside my that wonders if Atlantic City will become the next Asbury Park.. Towering but vacant buildings, a beach with no one on ..The once fabled Atlantic City is currently in free-fall form .. And summer business is bad. Maybe it's time for Bruce Springsteen to write a new song.

Ain't that America.. I missed this story when it was published in June by the Washington POST but it's just as important now: Massachusetts SWAT teams claim they’re private corporations, immune from open records laws.. That's a big deal.. and just awful if they win.

42% of Millennials claim they are socialists. But only 16% of them know what it means. The ignorance, the arrogance, the stupidity .. America was once great. Now it's a cheap date for other nations that will look for resources and real estate. The dumbing down is not happening, current time.. it happened.



Cleveland goes wild after it's announced LeBron James would be returning to the Cavaliers.. You know, the same fans who burned his jersey years ago? Who hated him? They love him. Meanwhile the world burns, and Americas are busy caring about soon to be washed up basketball players earning millions more a second than most humans.. Here's a video from CNN asking people on the street what they think about Lebron. I bet most would have not been able to answer one question about Syria, Israel, Ukraine, or the emerging police state in the United States.

A scandal is brewing in Hollywood: Pixar's Ed Catmull has emerged as a prime player in a wage fixing scandal..

Good historical account of what would have happened if the United States would have avoided involvement in World War I..

Monsanto herbicide linked to fatal kidney disease epidemic..



Could 99 days of Facebook freedom make you happy? A new campaign suggests that a hiatus from the social network will do your body good..

AMAZON seeking permission for drone tests..

Thomas Erdelyi, better known to the world as Tommy Ramone, passed away late Friday night at his home, where he had been receiving hospice care due to bile duct cancer. He was 62 years old...



I have been finding a lot of gems of horror movies on NETFLIX recently.. apparently I am not the only one.. Here's a listing of good horror sleepers on the service. Even a mention of ZOMBIE ASS: TOILET OF THE DEAD.. that one I didn't try yet.

HEATHER WADE ROCKS MIDNIGHT: Ultra Top Secret: Assessment of Situation / Statement on Position on UFOs

HEATHER WADE ROCKS MIDNIGHT: Ultra Top Secret: Assessment of Situation / Statement on Position on UFOs: Last night before the daily broadcast of MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT began, Art Bell posted a Facebook message that breaking news could occur on the program.. Host Heather Wade followed up with a ‘brace for it’ message.When the intro music finally ended, Wade waded deep into the Men In Black danger zone: Revealed though her radio broadcast and now on the Midnight in the Desert page (http://ift.tt/2sqCSRZ) are secret documents said to be given to Wade by a trusted source..Stanton Friedman, an expert in the UFO community who goes back decades in research, told Art Bell that the documents now downloadable are all new pieces of information.. and even more, that they prove government knowledge of different types of extra-terrestrial beings. Even that we truly did recover bodies..Bombshell stuff if it proves true.
And speaking of that.. the MIDNIGHT page still has a caveat to the breaking news…

A DEAR DAVID DIARY GETTING WORLDWIDE ATTENTION

I am completely terrified, enthralled, and perplexed by the DEAR DAVID Twitter stream being penned by New York writer Adam Ellis. He is known on Twitter as Moby_Dickhead.  And suddenly he is captivating publications all over the world..

It began in August. He said he had a dream about a boy with half of a head.. He said his apartment in NYC was being haunted by a dead boy. . . At some point he learned that the boy's name was David. Dear David, actually. And you could only ask him two questions. If you asked a third, he would desire to kill you.

Adam Ellis asked a third..

And the rest became a Twitter stream of nightmare potential.

His cats got involved, as he

Just last week he revealed this photograph, which he said shows Dear David staring at him from across his bedroom:



The last update was last week. Nothing since then.

There are currently 559,000 or so followers who have been watching the accounts of Moby Dickhead. Waiting for another enthralling update.. waiting for another ph…

Art Bell speaks!

And he no longer wants to have his name even associated with Coast to Coast AM..

Here's a screen cap from his Facebook page tonight, only moments ago, in which he exposed yet more feelings about the program:



For months now Art Bell has sent out cryptic messages through his Facebook page about how he wants to be disassociated from the late-night radio show..

Last night George Noory hosted Ghost to Ghost a.m., something Arbel started years ago.



One comment from a friend of Art Bell asked 'why not do a show' of his own. Bell responded in kind:


He said, "It's not that I want to do a show, it is that Coast has gone so far down the drain that I wish my name was not associated with it. I asked them to stop the Saturday Broadcasts of my old shows but so far they refuse."

Interesting developments continue with Mr. Bell.

It appears he is enjoying his show-free retirement, but something seemingly is breaking his heart about what has happened to the once beloved late ni…
