Pop Tart to the Rescue

Every once in awhile we get a story of triumph over tragedy and survival against all odds that warms the heart and touches the soul. This isn't one of those stories. It's half of one of those stories. It seems a North Carolina girl was able to survive two nights trapped in the wreckage of a Government Motors Monte Carlo by eating Pop Tarts.

That's the good part. The bad part is, her father did not survive the accident, which took place at about 10pm on Friday. Approximately 43 hour later (that would be Sunday night, Peggy Joseph) the wrecked car was discovered in a culvert in New Bern, North Carolina. It was originally thought by first responders that both parties inside the car were dead, but the girl made a sound alerting rescuers that she was still alive. She had survived the ordeal by eating Pop Tarts and Gatorade.

The girl was air lifted to a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries and is expected to make a full recovery. A man who is reported to be the deceased drivers "employer" (Washington Post), although I suspect he would be his former employer, defended his friend from accusations of speeding.

“He wasn’t speeding, there is no way in God’s green earth he was speeding,”

However, recent space images of the planet Earth show it to be blue, not green, which could be the reason for the following statement by the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

“The driver of the 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was traveling in excess of 100 mph as it ran off the road to the right and into a steep ditch bank. The car went airborne and was inverted as it hit a cluster of trees. The car came to rest on its top inside the culvert. The car was not able to be seen by the roadway. A person walking by happened to see the car in the culvert and called 911 around 5:30 p.m. Sunday and Craven County Sheriff Deputy Buddy Clements responded, followed by Troopers Blake Riggs, Jeff Rink and Joe Midgette,"

Either way, it is a fortunate thing that the 9 yr old girl survived the accident. Following her physical recovery, it is likely that she will need some counseling to deal with the situation of having been trapped in the car with her dead father. After that, she will be lectured by Michelle Obama about her two day Pop Tart binge, and only then can we be assured the girl will make a full recovery.

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
