How pissed are you if you live in Atlanta, Georgia? People depend on politicians, weather forecasts and news reports to plan their lives. All of these agencies and people failed miserably this week the city was crushed by ice, wind and snow. People were stranded in their cars for up to 16 hours with no water or food … roadways were bumper-to-bumper gridlock for miles … children were stuck in school and the entire area was shut down. Mayor Kasim Reed and Governor Nathan Deal flat out failed in protecting people from the elements. Schools should have never been opened and businesses should have been warned to close. The same things happened in Birmingham, AL and other Southern cities that have no snow plows or salt to put on their roadways. I’m really glad I live in Tampa Bay !!
Bad boy Justin Bieber was charged yesterday with assault for allegedly hitting a Toronto, Canada limousine driver multiple times. The problem with the limo driver happened December 30. Yesterday Bieber’s attorney entered a separate not guilty plea in Florida after The Biebs was charged with drunk driving and other charges. This kid is just a punk who needs to be taught a lesson. The not guilty plea in Florida is a joke and I hope he doesn’t “buy” his way out of punishment.
Kid Rock and Alan Jackson have decided to perform at SeaWorld despite the backlash and criticism the park has received over the 2013 documentary “Blackfish”. Nine other acts have refused to play in protest to the park. I say way to go guys! SeaWorld does a great job taking care of animals and protecting our waterways. While “Blackfish” shows the problems that happened with one killer whale, the park does much good in numerous areas.
Last but not least … A California school teacher was arrested yesterday when officials found hundreds of living and dead pythons in his home. William Buchman, 53, had over 400 snakes and the smell was so bad that neighbors complained … A report from The Public Library of Science says that men diagnosed with heart disease should not take testosterone as they are twice as likely to have a heart attack when taking the supplement. The risk is greater after the age of 65 … Look for the cold war to escalate as Russia has been accused by NATO of testing ground-launched cruise missiles even though they are banned via a treaty that was signed in 1987 … I will have a ton of Super Bowl trivia for you tomorrow! Have a great Thursday everybody!
