Interesting that you can buy 3.2 beer at the age of 18, but lap dances are illegal in Ohio. But Kenny Soprano GM of Marilyn's on Monroe says the $10 cover charge at the strip club will all be donated to Haitian Relief. Two sister clubs have already donated $5,000 each to Hatian relief.
I think this is the first time I have printed an chain email ever. But I believe it says something about the media and society today! It could be a "urban legend" as noted in the comment below, but the statement still is meaningful to say the least!
This text is from a county
emergency manager out in the western part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
after a severe snow storm ...
The Mining Journal, Marquette, MI
Up here in the Northern part of Michigan we
just recovered from a Historic event --- may I even say a "Weather Event" of
"Biblical Proportions" --- with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow
and winds to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles,
stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads,
isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.
Obama did not come.
FEMA did nothing.
No one howled for
No one blamed the government.
No one even
uttered an expletive on TV.
Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.
Our Mayor's did not blame Obama or anyone else.
Our Governor did
not blame Obama or anyone else either.
CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC did
not visit - or even report on this category 5 snow storm.
demanded $2,000 debit cards.
No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.
No one looted.
Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the
government do something.
Nobody expected the government to do anything
No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and
No Geraldo Rivera.
No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Brad
Pitt, No Hollywood types to be found.
Nope, we just melted the snow for water.
caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars.
drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask for a penny.
Local restaurants made food, and the police and fire departments
delivered it to the snow bound families..
Families took in the stranded
people - total strangers.
We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or
We put on an extra layers of clothes because up here
it is "Work or Die".
We did not wait for some affirmative action
government to get us out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare
program that trades votes for 'sittin at home' checks.
a Category 5 blizzard of this scale is not usual, we know it can happen
and how to deal with it ourselves.
I hope this gets passed on.
Maybe ..... SOME
people will get the message ...... The world does Not owe you a
Sgt Kim Munley came face to face with Nidal Malik Hasan at Fort Hood, and came out a heroine for shooting the Major before he continue his carnage on the Army Base. She shot Hasan four times, but was also wounded in the gun battle. Thank-You Sgt. Munley for your heroism!
Here's a feel good story....Kayleigh Crimmin 6, sold her toys on Craigslist and used the money to buy 5 bulletproof vests for the Newport News K-9 division. Way to go Kayleigh...giving back at such a young aga is great.
The world was elated when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the moon back in 1969. I was running props for "Mame" at Cleveland's Musicarnival theatre, and when Bea Arthur broke into the song- "Man in the Moon", the audience cheered...that's how it was back then....
But I never knew that President Nixon had speechwriter William Safire write a speech, in case the two astronauts got marooned on the moon. It's a part of history now...and interesting to say the least...Thankfully it was never given. Thanks to Some Space Guy for posting the link.....
Yankee Brett Gardner hadn't hit a home run in a long time. Today he visited a hospital, and a sick girl gave him a bracelet telling Gardner, it would help him hit a home run. Guess What? Gardner hit an inside the park homerun. Though the story is buried in the Yankee's story, this is a great human interest story, and I believe we will see more media on this in the next few days.
You remember the group of mature British women from Rylstone Women's Institute? They posed nude for a calendar to raise funds for cancer awareness? The movie "Calendar Girls" was made about their story? Well...They are back with a 2010 Calendar...and they all look great
I remember that fateful evening....and the aftermath. Life Magazine may not be publishing a print edition, but its noted photography lives on. The TW web site has just released 13 photos from staff member Henry Groskinsky taken on that fateful day. It's been 41 years, and viewing the simplicity and horror of April 4, 1968 is thought provoking
Wouldn't you like to see a beauty contestant bald? Of course you would....Miss Virginia Tara Wheeler has challenged Virigina residents through a St. Baldrick Event, and really everyone, to donate to Pediatric Cancer Research, and if her goal of $500,000 is reached by April 11, she will shave her lovely head bald. I will stay on this story as it develops.
Helen Hunt's 60 second documentary for Lisa Nigro's Chicago Based Inspiration Cafe was a hit during it's Oscar telecast airing. The Cafe caters to Chicago's homeless and makes them feel like human beings, providing meals, counseling and job training.
The spot was from TrueNorth- the snack company (a division of Frito/Lay)...kudos to them for bringing Inspiration Cafe to the public's eye
