The Palin and Tunguska Explosions.

JUNE 30, 2011
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
June 30 is … Meteor Day

A day invented for my biggest critic, Glenn.

The meteoric like rise of Sarah Palin seems over. Good looks and the good-old girl shtick gets old fast and it has. I always wondered how a mother who could not raise her children properly and quit during her only term as governor remained popular. It is obvious now people liked her around as eye candy and to poke fun at.

Sorry, Sarah.

A new poll shows President Obama beating Mama Grizzly in her home state. When asked if they preferred Obama or Palin, 42% of responders leaned towards Obama, while only 36% chose Palin. Of those who preferred Obama, 35% said they felt strongly about their choice. 24% felt similarly about Palin.

Debunking any accusations of a liberal survey bias, the Anchorage Daily News reported that conservative radio host Mike Porcaro paid for the poll. "Sarah Palin showcases her Alaska roots at every opportunity, but the surprising reality is she has become highly unpopular in her home state,” Porcaro said in an emailed statement."
The poll spells bad news for Palin, who once said, "I love this state like I love my family." The whole State didn’t get pregnant as a minor nor did it move to Arizona.

The results also comes in the wake of Bristol Palin’s cryptic announcement on Tuesday's Fox and Friends that her mother "definitely knows" whether or not she will be running for president in 2012. You know Bristol, formerly the most popular high school student in her school, invited to every party for entertainment purposes. I wonder where Bristol got her sex drive and moral backbone?

On this date in history:

1948 Cleveland Indian's Bob Lemon no-hits Detroit Tigers, 2-0
1948 Transistor as a substitute for Radio tubes announced (Bell Labs)
1950 Pres Truman orders US troops into Korea
1959 During a game in Wrigley Field, 2 balls were in play at same time, Cubs committed errors on both.
1975 Bundy victim Shelley Robertson disappears in Colorado

Today is the anniversary of the Tunguska explosion.

Possibly the most powerful, natural explosion in recorded history occurred on this day in 1908 at 7:17 a.m. The site was the Tunguska section of Central Siberia.

The spectacular explosion devastated a forested area, some 70 miles in diameter, caused seismic shock, a firestorm followed by black rain and an illumination that, it is said, could be seen for hundreds of miles. Yet, no crater was formed, and only the tops of the trees were burned at the central point of the explosion. It is said that the impact threw down horses that had been standing in a field 400 miles away and moved the tracks of the Trans-Siberian Railway, as if in an earthquake. It flash-burned people 40 miles away, melted their silverware and destroyed herds of reindeer.

Even now, no one knows what caused the explosion ... an extraterrestrial visitor? A comet? A meteor? A black hole? An atomic explosion?

I like to think I am tolerant and have compassion for fellow human beings. This is getting close to overkill. The cost the rest of us bear seems to be unreasonable. This is not my fault; it is a break of life, it is not always fair.

For five hours before a Missoula Osprey minor league baseball game last summer, Cheri Pijanowski hand washed 150 white folding chairs with bleach and water. The metal deck and rails around the seats were power-washed and she meticulously reviewed the concession menu to eliminate not just Cracker Jacks and peanuts, but any ingredient that may contain nuts. She'll do it all again this year to bring the crack of the bat and cheer of the crowd to kids -- like her oldest son Joshua -- who otherwise can't relish in the carefree summer experience of a hometown major league ball game because of severe nut allergies.

The Washington Nationals, St. Louis Cardinals, Seattle Mariners, Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres and New York Mets are among the roughly half of all big league teams to host at least one nut-controlled game this year. In most cases, a peanut-controlled game day means offering an isolated section of around 100 seats that have been thoroughly cleaned, banning the sale of nuts nearby, posting signs and ushers around to make fans aware of the nut-free zone and keeping medical staff close for emergencies.
Without these extraordinary efforts, a baseball game can be a nerve-racking afternoon at best for parents of children with severe, potentially fatal, nut allergies.

"It's like being in a horror movie -- you hear the crunch of shells underfoot and you see people cracking open shells," said Chicago mom Joyce Davis, whose 11-year-old daughter Julia is allergic to peanuts. Davis took her family to a peanut allergy friendly game at Wrigley Field last August. "Julia loves to play baseball, so to see her heroes play live and experience the ballpark vibe, it's a childhood experience that I don't think should be kept from people," said Davis. The most common reactions to nuts include hives, swelling of the lips and tongue, trouble breathing, nausea or a drop in blood pressure, which in some cases can lead to death.


Peanut allergies affect roughly 0.5 to 1 percent of the population and appear to be on the rise, perhaps even doubling in the last decade, according to experts. It remains unclear exactly why. Researchers are examining the idea that a child's immune system has not been properly challenged in an environment that is too clean, also known as the hygiene hypothesis. Accidentally eating food cooked in peanut oil or made with nuts or inhaling the lingering peanut dust around the ball park can trigger severe reactions in those who are allergic.

Minnesota Twins fans with nut allergies were invited to Monday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. At Target Field in Minneapolis, 100 fans will watch the action from two balconies tucked in the left field corner that provide a stellar view, a separate entrance and peanut-free concessions, said marketing vice president Patrick Klinger.

Kids with severe peanut and tree nut allergies, like Jenny Kales' 11-year-old daughter Alexandra, are unlikely to outgrow their sensitivity and are accustomed to traveling with hand wipes, medicine, their own snacks and an EpiPen used to counter an anaphylactic reaction. The Kales family attended the Cubs game last summer worry-free for Alexandra's first game. "When you take the food allergy out of the equation, it's a huge thing because it lets you have a regular experience," she said.

At Boston's storied Fenway Park, the stadium sells some 1,000 bags of Cracker Jacks and 3,000 bags of peanuts during a single game, said Red Sox senior manager of public affairs Zineb Marchoudi. But the team also organized three games this season with a peanut allergy friendly section for 226 people and made available throughout the season a sanitized 10-person booth.

Away from big cities and major league clubs, families are finding a number of minor league teams with peanut-free accommodations. The Rochester Red Wings 12,000-seat stadium in upstate New York has a grassy beam on the third baseline that is a no-peanut zone for every game, said team President Naomi Silver. The stadium also offers allergen-free food at a concession stand dubbed FREE that offers munchies made without basic allergens like nuts, dairy, wheat and shellfish. "It may not be the most popular, but it is the most appreciated food stand in the stadium," said Silver.

I think it was just one of those things we cannot explain.

I am sure it has happened but I have never heard of a child or adult dying at a Major League Baseball game as a result of a peanut allergy reaction. I personally think if we did not put so much effort into peanut allergies and the costly prevention of exposure to children, children would get used to it and it would go away. Everybody does not and should not be inconvenienced and pay money because some children have peanut allergies. Exposure would take care of most of it. The really significant cases should be dealt with by the pharmaceutical industry. If it is that big of a medical issue, drug companies will find a drug since it would be profitable.

Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too.

Dodgers are still paying a guy who has not played for them since 2002.

JUNE 29, 2011
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
June 29 is … Camera Day

Below is a snapshot of the Dodgers finances.

In a column posted on Tuesday, I mentioned the Dodgers Bankruptcy filing on Monday. I did a little research to determine who the potential losers are other than Major League Baseball. In the Bankruptcy filing document, the debtor (Dodgers) listed creditors. I am sure this will be amended at least one time. Those listed as being owed money include:

NAME                                                                 AMOUNT OWED

1. Manny Ramirez, a former player                     $20,992,086.00
2. Andruw Jones, a former player                        $11,075,000.00
3. Chicago White Sox                                          $ 3,500,000.00
4. Juan Pierre, a former player                                      $ 3,050,000.00
5. Marquis Grissom, player no longer in baseball         $ 2,719,146.00
6. Bank of America, credit card debt                    $    316,243.00
7. KABC – AM Radio                                         $    273,321.00
8. City of Los Angeles, Taxes                              $    240,563.00
9. Vincent E. Scully, (Vin Scully) announcer                 $    152,778.00

Manny Ramirez is out of baseball; Andruw Jones and Juan Pierre are playing for other teams; Marquis Grissom has not played for the Dodgers since 2002.

The complete schedule of creditors lists 40 entities including the current roster of players. This is the type of information MLB does not want floating around on the internet or accessible by other players and the union. It is out there now. MLB will long remember the day they let the McCourts into the ownership club. They took a storied franchise and ruined it. They may also take away money from the other owners while MLB recovers from this pair of keystone cops. If they miss a pay date, players will flee this franchise like the Titanic. It could be decades to rebuild player trust, fan trust and respect from other owners.

Clearly the McCourts did not get a check mark on their report cards saying they play well with others.

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court got one right. The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from former detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq who wanted to sue defense contractors over claims of abuse.

The justices turned aside the appeal Monday from Iraqis who said they or their relatives were abused by interrogators employed by two firms, CACI International Inc. and Titan Corp. A divided federal appeals court had dismissed the lawsuits. The firms provided interrogators or interpreters to assist U.S. military guards at the prison that served as the backdrop for pictures of grinning U.S. soldiers posing with detainees, some naked, being held on leashes or in painful and sexually humiliating positions. Military investigators later concluded that much of the abuse happened in late 2003 – when CACI and Titan's interrogators were at the prison.

Michelle Bachmann manages to make a major misstatement within hours of announcing she was running for President. She confused John Wayne with John Wayne Gacy. Not exactly the same guy or same all-American image.  In Waterloo, Iowa on the eve of her official presidential campaign announcement, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told Fox News that she has "the spirit" of John Wayne.

The presidential hopeful, who was born and grew up in Waterloo as a child before moving to Minnesota, said, "Well, what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too."

The Washington Times points out one slight problem with the Tea Party favorite's remarks: The John Wayne with roots in Waterloo is John Wayne Gacy, a serial killer who was executed by lethal injection in 1994 after being convicted of 33 murders in Illinois.

John Wayne, the late movie star, director and producer, was born in Winterset, Iowa, but appears to have no specific connection to Waterloo.

Bachmann's reference to Wayne in the Hawkeye State does not appear to be an isolated incident. In the latest edition of Newsmax magazine, the conservative congresswoman says in an exclusive interview, "We're seeing the nation move into decline. I'm not willing to do that. I'm not satisfied. I grew up with John Wayne’s America. I was proud that you grew up in John Wayne’s America: Proud to be an American, thrilled to be a patriot."

The Washington Times reports that Bachmann's camp addressed her remarks to Fox News in a statement saying, "John Wayne is from Iowa, his parents lived in Waterloo." CNN reports, "But according to the Waterloo Chamber of Commerce, the actor's parents did live in the city at one point." This will not be the first clarification from the Bachmann camp nor the most serious correction/clarification.

Blagojevich is going to prison soon.

JUNE 28, 2011
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
June 28 is … Paul Bunyan Day

As I was driving to the Courthouse on Monday I saw a large lumberjack riding a larger blue ox. Did anyone else see this? It was on Sycamore Road near Hopkins Park. Let me know.

Will this finally end the long, annoying great hairdo caper? Jurors deliberating in the corruption trial of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich told a judge on Monday that they have reached a verdict on 18 of the 20 counts against him, and attorneys in the case have agreed that the verdict should be read. Judge James Zagel said that will happen Monday afternoon.

The verdict came in at 2:10 p.m. It is Guilty on 17 Counts, Not Guilty on 1 Count and a hung jury on two Counts. When added to the previous felony conviction our ex –governor was convicted of he now has been convicted of 18 felonies. Sentencing has not been set but it should happen before Thanksgiving.

He will see significant jail time. All of the convictions could result in prison time. Most likely, the prison sentences will run concurrently, meaning if he gets jail time on all 18 Counts he will effectively be serving 18 years every year. I predict he will serve between eight and ten years meaning he will get out of prison in time to see his youngest daughter graduate high school and he will be in his mid sixties.

The most significant event ever to occur on June 28th throughout history was in 1914 Assassination of the heir to the throne of Austria, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophia, in Sarajevo by a Serbian Nationalist,Gavrilo Princip. This incident precipitated a war with Serbia, eventually starting WW I.

The rich just don’t get it sometimes. The owners of the Dodgers are trying to get a divorce and they cannot agree about that. A California Court will not do its job, conduct a hearing and end the bitter divorce proceedings. Now the disagreements between two people who seem to be quite self-centered have brought Major League Baseball into the picture more than it already was. MLB should just go to the Bankruptcy Court and buy the team. Mr. and Mrs. McCourt are screwing MLB, the players and the fans because they cannot get along and made a bad investment they cannot divide in a divorce proceeding. MLB needs to step up to the plate and screw the McCourts.
A mere three days before the payroll comes due — payroll that Frank McCourt can’t meet — the Dodgers have filed for bankruptcy, reports Richard Sandomir. With that, the legal game begins.

Obviously the situation is fluid, and more details will stream in as the morning and day progresses, but for the time being, this could buy McCourt some time. Why? Because a bankruptcy filing puts a halt on all legal action with respect to the bankruptcy estate (i.e. the Dodgers). McCourt will certainly argue that this will prevent a takeover from Major League Baseball, though the court may decide differently when it gets a chance to weigh in, likely in the next few days.

The problem for McCourt is that the kind of bankruptcy the Dodgers have certainly filed is designed to reorganize the financial house.  Frank McCourt, however, does not have a plan available to him to do such a thing or else he would have already done it.  The filing isn’t yet circulating, but my guess is that he’s going to ask the court to order that the Fox TV deal be executed assuming Fox wants to still do it, which it has been reported it may not thereby providing funding.

The problem with that, of course, is that the bankruptcy court won’t approve of anything that is not seen as in the best interests of the Dodgers, and it’s obvious that Major League Baseball and others would come in and make a strong case that the Fox deal is disastrous for the Dodgers or, at the very least, not the best deal they could make.

If McCourt can do no better, the court may very well order a sale of the team. Perhaps auctioning it off, Texas Rangers-style? Which, by the way, would also put Major League Baseball in the same position it was in with respect to the Rangers: less-able to control who owns the team than it would otherwise be.  Mark Cuban bid on the Rangers, after all. If his or some other non-chosen person’s money looked green to the bankruptcy court in such a scenario, Bud Selig would be hard-pressed to stop them from participating in a team auction.

But let us not get ahead of ourselves. For now, we simply have Frank McCourt where he was inevitably headed: bankruptcy court. And some time has been bought. A little time anyway. The end game for McCourt, however, doesn’t look all that better than it did before.
Today is also Route 66 Day. My family owned a motel on Route 66 in Bloomington, IL. It was named The Prairie Travler Motel. The word traveler was misspelled as travler. This was because when the sign company installed the large green neon sign spelling out the name, it probably stood fifty feet tall, they misspelled traveler, leaving out an “e”. The cost to replace it was prohibitive so the name was changed instead. American ingenuity at its best. We were at the forefront of a currently common occurrence where people misspell many words or names just to be unique or because they really do not know how to spell.

ROUTE 66 DAY “Get your kicks...on Route...Six...Six” The words to the classic song made famous by Nat "King" Cole, The Manhattan Transfer, Rosemary Clooney and many others is remembered today, along with the TV show of the same name.
The 59 year-old highway of 2,200 miles of blacktop was decertified as a U.S. highway on this day in 1985. The highway that was a legendary part of Americana saw highway crews removing the classic roadway shield-markers that designated it as the highway west.
Route 66 started in Chicago, Illinois and continued into Santa Monica, California. Martin Milner and George Maharis took us for many spins on the famous highway through the TV series which aired in the early sixties. To travel from one end of Route 66 to the other, one would go through eight states and three time zones. Today, a very small portion of the highway is still open. In some places, grass and vegetation, as seen from the interstate highway or railroad tracks nearby, have all but obscured the once well-traveled Route 66. Some one-stop, out-of-the-way places such as gas stations and greasy-spoon diners are now nothing more than decaying shells of their once glorious past.
If you ever plan to motor west, travel my way, take the highway that’s the best. Get your kicks on Route 66.
It winds from Chicago to L.A., More than two thousand miles all the way. Get your kicks on route 66.
Now you go through St. Louis, Joplin, Missouri and Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty. Now you’ll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico, Flagstaff, Arizona, don’t forget Winona ... Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino.
Now won’t you get hip to this timely tip? When you make that California trip get your kicks on route 66.

The top cop in Chicago thinks I am a racist.

JUNE 27, 2011
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
June 27 is … National Columnists Day

Now this is a day worth having.

The Republicans better wake-up and it better be sooner rather than later if they are really going to challenge President Obama in the 2012 election and deny him a second term. A recent poll from Iowa shows Mitt Romney leading, followed by Michelle Bachmann and Herman Cain. None of these people are electable on a national basis and every expert I have heard speak on the subject or write about it is aware of that fact. Republicans and Democrats have realized recycling candidates does not improve them or their chances of winning. That knocks Romney out of serious contention. We do not elect millionaire Mormons, just wouldn’t be prudent.

Michelle Bachmann appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace on Sunday. Mr. Wallace asked her if she was “a flake.” Fox News is home turf for Republicans. That is just a sampling of questions she will be asked. She will also have to defend many of the outlandish statements she has a history of making. America has serious problems and needs a serious leader not a punch line to a cocktail party joke.

A new Iowa Poll shows national Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney and Tea Party favorite Michele Bachmann leading among the state's likely GOP caucus-goers. The poll conducted for The Des Moines Register shows Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, with support from 23 percent in Iowa. Bachmann, the Minnesota representative who plans to launch her campaign in Iowa on Monday, has support from 22 percent.

According to the survey, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain is running in third in the Hawkeye State at 10 percent. While perhaps not as well known as some of his rival GOP contenders, Cain has found success in appealing to conservative voters on the trail since announcing his candidacy last month.

Romney was the No. 2 finisher in the caucuses in his bid for the 2008 GOP nomination. Bachmann is a three-term congresswoman and newer face in the 2012 White House mix. The results are based on telephone interviews with 400 likely Republican Iowa caucus-goers from June 19 to 22. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.

Romney has said he plans to run a scaled-down Iowa campaign, compared to the all-out, $10-million effort he waged for the 2008 caucuses. Tim Pawlenty has been the most aggressive about campaigning in Iowa, having lined up top Iowa and national consultants, been a frequent visitor to the state and ran the 2012 campaign's first Republican candidate television advertisements last week.

However, only 6 percent of Iowa Republicans expected to attend the 2012 caucuses prefer the former Minnesota governor as their choice, according to the poll. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose campaign has struggled since widespread staff departures this month, has support from 7 percent, the same as Texas Representative Ron Paul. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has 4 percent, followed by former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who has said he will not campaign in Iowa, with 2 percent.

I do not think the person that will get the Republican Party’s nomination has announced his candidacy yet.

Chicago has once again made a mistake in hiring its top police official. The lies this guy told Chicago about the closing of beaches on Memorial Day “because it was too hot” was immediately ridiculed and has been proven to be a lie. If he were not the top cop he would be arrested for obstruction of justice. Now he calls law abiding, gun owning citizens racists and says our government sponsors racism and the killing of blacks and Latinos through gun control laws.

Gun rights advocates and other right-wing groups responded harshly on Friday to some strong words on gun control by Chicago's new top cop. Garry McCarthy, brought in as the superintendent of police by newly elected mayor Rahm Emanuel, made the comments at St. Sabina, a liberal black church in the heart of Chicago's South Side. The Auburn-Gresham neighborhood where the church is located has struggled with gun violence for years, and its pastor, Father Michael Pfleger, is an outspoken supporter of limiting gun rights. "So here’s what I want to tell you. See; let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What did they all have in common? Anybody getting’ scared? Government sponsored racism. I told you I wasn't afraid [of race]. I told you I wasn't afraid.

"Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy: Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children."

Well buddy, I will tell you; you are crazy. This is not that sinkhole of the east coast Newark, NJ. This is the god fearing, hard working, “hey jackass, just tell us the truth” Midwest. It is so easy to blame everybody else when you cannot do your job. If you see a problem with illegal guns, clean it up, make arrests; don’t tell the law abiding citizens it is their fault. You get over a quarter of a million dollars a year to fight, prevent and solve crime not to call me and millions like me a racist. Why don’t you go back under the rock you crawled out from under. A monkey with ears could do your job.

Immediately after those remarks, he also insisted, as he has often said since coming over to Chicago from Newark, N.J., that the gun control debate has to move "back to the center." Most conservative commentators overlooked that more moderate position in their response to the recently-surfaced video as well they should have. Cops should not fire first and ask questions later.

“After several minutes of gratuitous self-promotion, McCarthy launched into a racially charged tirade in which he accused the NRA and law-abiding gun owners of participating in a government-sponsored program to kill black people," Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, wrote on the group’s website. "Like most of you, we believe an assertion such as McCarthy’s is too nutty to dignify with a response."

Andrew Breitbart's Big Government blog goes for guilt by association: "McCarthy states his comfort speaking to the “right audience” about his views," blogger Rebel Pundit writes. "Could this be because outspoken radical activist Rev. Dr. Michael L. Pfleger is the Pastor of the Faith Community of Saint Sabina? Pfleger is known for his strong anti-gun views, outreach to prostitutes, anti-drug campaigns, and warm relationships with Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright."

And a vitriolic blog post on ChicagoNow pulled no punches. "[W]e have a top cop more interested in appearing at racist churches making race-baiting speeches than doing his job," writes Warner Todd Huston. "Emanuel better watch out because what we obviously have here is just another arrogant jack-booted thug that thinks he should be allowed to make up his own laws instead of enforcing the laws actually on the books. McCarthy issued a relatively toned-down statement on Friday. "Strong gun laws against illegal firearms are critical in order to maintain public safety and private rights,” McCarthy said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “Gang and drug activity intersect with guns, and all three must be the focus of violence-reduction efforts in our communities.”
