I grew up listening to Paul Harvey on the radio. Be it his 15 minute broadcasts of off beat news and commentary, I loved how he would intersperse the stories with Page 1, Page 2, and when Paul Harvey sold a product, he sold a product. Just ask long time sponsor Bose.....
Harvey also had a unique radio feature, "...the rest of the story" where he would talk about someone, or something- building up to the climax....and now you know....the rest of the story".
Ralph Story, George Putnam, and now Paul Harvey. Legends in Broadcasting who had that style that is sadly extinct today.
Talk about chutzpah. There have been so many paypal horror story since eBay purchased them, and this one has to rank up there with the best. Tony Zamora, using his Paypal debit card charges $26 for gasoline, knowing the amount will debited to his PP account. But he had no idea that PP would actually charge him over 81 billion dollars. Obviously, a computer error, he called PP's cracked customer service department, and the CSR, who spoke in broken-English argued with him for 10-15 minutes. "But, Did you buy gas?"...... Zamora says he will now pay cash for gas.
Power if a terrible thing to have if used incorrectly, and in reviewing the outrage these 2 King County deputies had, when a 15 year old girl threw something at them, is disturbing. Now I don't want to lump the law enforcement profession into one category for a few "bad apples"- so all the more reason that cleaning up their own houses of deputies that have issues- should be a priority. Wouldn't you agree.
The Deputy in Question has been named as Paul Schene - SeattlePI
I know that this tape only shows one side of the story....but, come on, shouldn't restraint by the deputies be an issue??
In the UK, Judge Julian Hall has quite a reputation. In a case involving Teacher Catherine Armstrong, 33, who had sex with a 15 year old student. Hall allowed the suspect to go free because he didn't see any harm. Armstrong received a 12 month sentence, but it was suspended for 24 months. In a statement Judge Hall said: “I find it impossible to decide if he has been harmed by what you did but you shouldn’t have done it.”
That decision should not sit well with the general public in UK.
Olan W. Jones of Brooker, FL must have been jonesing or what? He set fire to his home, with his 5 children still inside. Jones told authorities, and I quote- he did it so he could get prescription drugs by reporting to his physician that his medication had been destroyed by fire. All 5 kids made it out. Jones faces up to 25 years in prison. No word medication he was seeking
