So, they speak kindly of the dog but… did he get a Scooby Snack?

Wasn’t the dog’s fault.  It was the kid’s fault for having a shell chambered and no safety on.  Read the article.  Nowhere did the reporter catch the important part, that is, WHY did the shotgun go off?  He was real good about capturing dad and son’s warm fuzzy feelings about the dog but not the facts – the kid is lucky he still has a head – but that’s not important.

Oregon Man Shot by Dog During Hunting Trip

Sunday , November 23, 2008

PORTLAND, Ore. —
Henry Marcum has nothing but kind words for the dog that shot his 23-year-old son this weekend.

Marcum says his son, Matthew, was standing in Tillamook Bay at the start of duck-hunting trip when his dog jumped into the boat, setting off a 12-gauge shotgun.

The blast blew a hole in the aluminum boat before hitting Marcum, who is recovering from injuries to his legs and buttocks at Portland’s Legacy Emanuel Hospital.

Henry Marcum says he’s not angry with the dog, and neither is his son.

The elder Marcum says the Labrador named Drake is a good dog and the shooting is “just one of those things.”

This makes my day.  No, it makes my year and perhaps my decade.

Scalding him in boiling oil seems appropriate.

Like I’ve said to so many other beggars… Just where do you think the money is coming from, anyway, Ohio?

Oh.  That’s different.

Bob Westfall, who was in Breckenridge on Saturday as an observer for Norm Coleman, said he had concerns when members of his team learned a ballot counter had worked for Franken.
“I don’t understand how you can switch from being partisan one day to being neutral today,” Westfall said.

Vertin, who’s an election judge in Wilkin County, said she volunteered to help with the recount because she wanted to be part of the historic process.

wtf???…

Vertin, who lives in Breckenridge and has a cabin in Otter Tail County, said she was able to set her politics aside to help with the recount.

“I feel I can be completely unbiased,” Vertin said. “Everyone in this room is partisan to some degree.”

later…

Secretary of State Mark Ritchie said he was not familiar with what occurred in Wilkin County, but he has confidence in the county election officials.

“It’s not my job to second-guess county election officials,” Ritchie said Saturday.

To the sec of state Ritchie… if it’s not your job to oversee allegations of possible impropriety (such as this massive conflict of interest) then what IS your job?

Anybody in an important position either knows what “conflict of interest” means – or if they don’t, they oughtn’t be there in the first place.

This didn’t strike them as odd the first time it happened?

Boy, 12, Dies From Excessive Deodorant Use

A coroner in Britain has determined that a 12-year-old boy died after using too much spray deodorant in a confined space, according to a report from abc.net.au.

Daniel Hurley collapsed in a January after spraying on Lynx deodorant in the bathroom of his Derbyshire home.

An inquest was told last week that a “volatile” agent in the deodorant upset the boy’s heart rhythm.

He was hospitalized after the incident and died five days later from a cardiac arrhythmia, also known as abnormal heart rhythms, according to the report.

The boy’s father, Robert Hurley, told the inquest that Daniel was fit and healthy. He also took pride in his appearance, using hair gels and deodorants, which he often sprayed all over his clothes.

The coroner said it was combination of the deodorant and the fact that it was sprayed in a confined space that caused the adverse effect on the boy’s heart.

His death followed an incident several weeks earlier when he had collapsed in the bathroom but quickly recovered, according to the report.

You just can’t make this stuff up.  Just the term “naturist hardliners”… priceless.

Report: French Nightclubs Burned Down in War Between Nudists, Swingers

One of Europe’s most famous nudist colonies has become the subject of an unusual investigation by French detectives after the destruction of three nightclubs in fires blamed on naturist “hardliners.”
The normally peaceful Cap d’Agde, a magnet for nudists in the south of France, has been plunged into anxiety as investigators suspect “fundamentalist” nudists of harboring a grudge against the échangistes, or swingers, who are drawn to the town by the promise of sex.

A so-called boîte échangiste — or wife-swapping club — called Glamour, where couples engage in group sex, was the first to be destroyed in April. The next day, the Palme Ré, another orgy venue, also went up in flames. In September, the Tantra club and Zen, its neighboring bar, were leveled in blazes.

No one was hurt but the fires have shocked a community whose crime rate has been dominated until now by cases of exhibitionism.

Tensions have risen between the naturists, who believe that nudity is a healthy choice of lifestyle and nothing to do with sex, and the échangistes, who are attracted to nudist camps by the prospect of multiple partners.
