WHAT I'M READING TODAY.. THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY..


A very interesting story is appearing in SLATE today..A former stormchaser now thinks the idea of chasing severe weather is unethical..

I will be upfront: I love watching live storm coverage, especially hurricane and tornado reports. But I equally think news forecasters who are paid by their employer to go into the storm is unethical. If one does it himself or herself, I think it's based more on a passion.. I always think back to when Vince McMahan made Owen Hart get hoisted over 100 feet above the wrestling ring, and then he fell to his death.It's a tough call..

Perhaps it could also be said that 'ghost hunting' is as unethical if not more so than storm chasers. If you believe in ghosts, that is..
Truth is scarier than fiction.. A Greek Satanist has been arrested over his sacrificial killing of a homeless woman.. Papageorgiou, the son of a retired actor suffering from heart troubles, was allegedly planning a…

TUESDAY TERRORS

TUESDAY TERRORS

A manic or morbid Monday? War! What is a good far!? Absolutely nothing

It is what you make of it.. It seems humanity is making the worst of it regardless of where you look.. A collection and smattering of spatterings making headlines from the world at large..


There has been a dramatic escalation of violence in Iraq over the weekend as ISIS--or now ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)--has been accused of mass murder. The accusation makes it easy when they go online to brag about their mass murder.. There are images and grisly videos circulating the world wide web.. the entire planet can now see the barbaric nature with which ISIL/ISIS imposes Sharia Law.  And now this: Iran is directly getting involved with the conflict while the United States contemplates what else it will do.. In the meantime all eyes are on the Baghdad Embassy where personnel are still housed and militants take over more areas, closing in on the city..
