One down! and other things!

Acting monologue, 1min30sec of goodness. It came out all right, though I blanked on one line...twice...but the class thought the whole thing was funny, so it's all good.

4 or so to go...

I mean finals, of course. To celebrate this miniscule accomplishment to and entertain thee, I've decided to link some funny videos. Note: they are funny to me. Realize that they may not, in fact, be funny to you, the reader.

- a webcomic, actually...pretty funny... :

It's been a long time since I last 'blogged.' (I feel a bit dumb saying blogged...) Isn't it just a kind of weird thing, blogging?... I mean I'm fine with it, but just speaking about it is...weeeird. Know what I mean???

Have a nice day!

What the Hetts?! #7: Crazy Stuff

Pre-Reading: ANY guesses or questions as to who the source is will be deleted immediately to protect the source's privacy. Should I discover the source to be in error I will correct this post via a future post.

I heard today from a reliable source that a student at LaSalle High School was caught recently with two rifles in his car--and ammunition. Apparently he was going to bring them in at lunchtime. I don't know much more on that.

Here's the kicker--he was only suspended.

What the Hetts?! #6: Doubt is no Benefit

The latest bizarre case comes from a young boy, age six, who called 911 to report that his mother was having serious health problems and had collapsed. Rather than taking him seriously, the 911 operator thought that the kid, Robert, "was playing on the phone." (Italics mine.) So of course the worst possible thing, the poor kid's mom's death, was the result. Now there's a lawsuit being brought against Detroit for wrongful death. The attorney representing Robert notes that "Robert did exactly what he was taught to do."

Even given the age of the kid, it seems awfully careless tha the operator chose not to give him the benefit of the doubt. I know I'd prefer to answer a prank once in awhile (are 6-year-olds even capable of that, criminally?) as if it were serious than to let someone die. I know I don't want operators like that working in Portland. By the way, if you want it, the full story is here.
