So many questions and no one with any answers.
1. First up, regarding the owner of The Tiger Ranch “shelter” who will stand trial for the abuse of 400 feral, sick and abandoned cats, 100 of which were euthanized — said the owner’s defense attorney:
“This is the first serious attempt to shut down a no-kill facility. That’s what this is.”
The question: Is it really a no-kill facility when the animals are all sick, dying or dead? Or is it just a slow-kill facility. Just because you’re not actually slitting their throats doesn’t mean you’re not killing them. Either way: GUILTY!
2. From the PG:
A customer used a broom to fight off a knife-wielding suspect who tried to rob a store in Somerset Township last night, state police said. The suspect fled to a waiting vehicle, but eyewitnesses obtained the license plate number and gave it to state police. The witness reported the occupant of the vehicle was seen throwing clothing from the car window.
The question: Why did the occupant throw clothing out of the vehicle? Was it stolen clothing? Was there drug residue on the clothing? Was he taking clothing off of his body? Was he hoping to be the next Scary Naked Bleeding Man? Either way: KEEP YOUR DAMN CLOTHES ON!
3. King Kong is sadcakes:
The nonprofit University of Pittsburgh Medical Center — a profit machine in recent years — did something rare during the first nine months of fiscal 2008.
It lost money.
Question: Does anyone, anyone at all, care that King Kong, a for-profit giant hiding behind a non-profit piece of paper, didn’t actually turn a profit? Not me. Not me at all. King Kong can come and kiss my ass. And speaking of ass-kissing …
4. Those newlyweds that went ballistic on the “Good Samaritans” held a news conference to give their side of the story and their side was basically that they were defending themselves:
The bride who was jailed along with her groom after a wedding night brawl said yesterday the melee started when she stuck out her rear end for her husband to kiss during a boisterous argument in a hotel hallway.
When the cops questioned the groom about kicking her in the butt, did he say, “Well, she was ASKING FOR IT!”
Either way: Don’t ask for it. You might get it.
5. Innocent until proven guilty be damned, the man that last year raped and killed that girl riding her ATV and then confessed to it, claimed yesterday on the stand in his own defense that a complete stranger showed up on his land with the ATV and the dead girl and offered him $100 to bury the ATV.
Returning to the truck, Mr. Martin saw a body in the passenger seat covered with a gray coat. All he could see were a hand, legs and some hair. “I said, ‘What’s this?’ ” he testified, “and he said, ‘There was an accident.’ At this point, I was so scared and confused I didn’t know what to do.”
The question: You walk up to a guy’s truck, see a girl’s body covered in a coat on the front seat after you’ve helped the man bury an ATV, you’re “scared”, so you look at the murderer and say, “What’s this?”
No. You do not. You scream “AUGH!” and you run away like there’s a doll with no face chasing after you.
