If you think political talk radio is a brutal place, you should try sports talk radio. In the world of news talk, you have a biased hosed with a political agenda attempting to spin current events to make you see them his way. In the world of sports talk, you largely have a field of minds so jammed with statistics and dates that they are unable to form a point of view on anything other than a simple Vegas line, let alone manage to try to find a way to spin the event for the mindless masses who tune it. This can make listening to channels like Mad Dog Radio on Sirius and XM Radio an exercise in frustration. Yet it is an exercise that I perform almost daily, and occasionally I call in to try to straighten some of these guys out. My latest beef? The New York Knicks.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri woman is accused of
drugging her 1-year-old granddaughter, hoping that the child's
divorcing parents would get back together if they had a sick child.
Jefferson City police allege in a probable cause statement that
41-year-old Terri Chilton fed her granddaughter blood thinner on
Jan. 12, causing the girl to bleed uncontrollably from her mouth,
nose and two minor scratches. The girl survived, but it's not yet
known if there was long-term organ damage.
Chilton is charged with one count of first-degree child
endangerment. Online court records do not list an attorney for the
Jefferson City woman, and she did not immediately return a call to
her home seeking comment Saturday. She was released on bond Friday.
