Viral star Kai the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker wanted for murder

Source: LA Times

"Smash, Smash, SmAAaash!!!"

Those words made "Kai the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker a viral sensation. That was his description of how he swung a blow for justice in Fresno to stop a large driver who allegedly ran over and attacked a PG&E employee.

Now those words could come back to haunt him. New Jersey prosecutors say Kai, 24, a.k.a. Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, is wanted for the blunt force trauma slaying of a lawyer.

The Union County homicide task force has a murder warrant for the arrest of McGillvary,a homeless drifter, in the slaying of attorney Joseph Galfy in Clark, N.J.

ABC: Obama AWOL From Texas Air National Guard


ABC news is reporting they have received a copy of an email dated April 1, 1968 in which a Texas Air National Guard commander reports that Barack Obama had not reported for duty for ten months.

According to the memo, the commander expresses concern that the impact on readiness of his unit "may jeopardize security of Americans in Benghazi for the next 40 years or so."

Thanks Mom


My mother passed away, ripely, last year, and it didn't hit me that it was the end of Mother's Day as a "thing" for me.

Thanks, Mom.

Frieda Berryhill, who died on June 20 at the age of 90, was a long-time member of Pacem in Terris, who dedicated herself to making the world better for us and for those who come after us. She fought tirelessly against nuclear power for the last decades of her life based on the premise that spent fuel can be deadly to untold future generations. She chaired the Coalition for Nuclear Power Plant Postponement for 20 years, working with the group's founder June Eisley to educate the public, legislators, and power company executives about the wisdom of foregoing nuclear power in Delaware. AND SHE SUCCEEDED. She was the first legal intervener to stop the proposed nuclear power plant in Summit, DE. Brilliant at research, she shared her extensive knowledge with many people at home and abroad, submitted statements to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and testified at hearings through July 2010. She spoke softly and with wit, but always carried a big bibliography.

Born in Austria, Frieda's experience of war and Nazi nationalism propelled her to fight against the Patriot Act, to march for peace, and to speak out against the folly of war.

She was a dynamo of dogged determination and a great inspiration. May she rest in peace.



My first Mother's Day without a Mother

I understand that there are issues around "Mother's Day" and so forth, but I had a peculiar thought today which I just wanted to put out into the ether.

My mother passed away, ripely, last year, and it didn't hit me that it was the end of Mother's Day as a "thing" for me.

Thanks, Mom.

I hope a very good lawyer represents Ariel Castro

I hope that Ariel Castro gets a highly competent and skilled advocate, who will zealously defend his rights, who will challenge every procedural step and every piece of evidence and how it was obtained. I hope that his case is heard by an impartial jury, and that he has a right to appeal any error made in his trial.

Or, if he pleads guilty, I hope he does so knowing that he has a right to a trial and fully understanding his options and likely consequences of that decision.

If he is convicted, I hope he is not subject to cruel and unusual punishment.

Any complaints about the "fascists" evacuating people in Ventura County?

Or is there an exception for dangerous circumstances not of human origin?

$4.2M... nice.

I hope due process is served

I hope any and all suspects voluntarily avail themselves of due process; I hope they are provided an attorney before making any statements to police; I hope they are provided with notice of the charges against them; a reasonable determination of bail or no bail; access to compulsory process for evidence and witnesses in their favor; I hope all the evidence against them is admissible, and that no in admissible evidence is used against them at trial; I hope they are tried by an impartial jury and a judge with a good grasp of procedure and basis for objections; I hope they are provided with an opportunity to appeal their verdicts and are provided with effective and competent counsel in that appeal; I hope they are not subjected to cruel and unusual punishment; I hope that they are not executed; I hope that study of them for years can provide us with useful diagnostic information.

Is "Black hat" and "white hat" a joke of some kind?

Could it be some play on so-called "black hat" and "white hat" perspectives of computer security?

Were they making an Easter egg sort of "joke" reference?
