Erins go bragh-less (?!), horrifying locals with topless brawl in Doon

TWO WOMEN have been arrested by gardai following a topless brawl in front of children.

The fight broke out at around 9.15am when parents are bringing their children to schools and child-minding facilities in Doon last Friday morning.

One eye-witness told the Leader that it was like watching wrestling on television.

“It was surreal, completely unbelievable. They just went at each other.

“Biting, scratching, pulling hair, kicking, everything, you name it,” said the eye-witness, who didn’t wish to be named.

Appeals court rules man can challenge Oklahoma 'rain god' plate

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 that a judge in Oklahoma City erred by throwing out the lawsuit of Keith Cressman, pastor of St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Bethany.

DENVER — An appeals court gave new life Tuesday to a lawsuit of a Bethany pastor who claims an American Indian image on Oklahoma's standard license plates violates his religious rights as a Christian.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 that a judge in Oklahoma City erred by throwing out the lawsuit of Keith Cressman, pastor of St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Bethany.

Cressman objects to the image of an American Indian shooting an arrow toward the sky to bring down rain.

He claims the image unconstitutionally contradicts his Christian beliefs by depicting Indian religious beliefs, and that he shouldn't have to display the image.

Poor oppressed pastor.

This blog has some fun with it:
Our license plates are infringing on our freedom
Being an Oklahoman is pretty cool. We have a very interesting history, crazy weather, and no matter how bad things get, at least we’re not Florida. Plus, we have a pretty rich Native American history, so much so that my out-of-state cousins think I live in a teepee. We’ve got a lot of symbols, statues and unfinished heritage centers that come from our Native American history and traditions.

"The President's Analyst" warned us that The Phone Company was spying

On us all and that TPC wanted to control us all.

The 1967 satire, The President's Analyst warned about government and corporate spying. Sure, it was just a funny little movie but it had it right 45 years ago! It even includes gun toting Americans, commentary on race relations, and a lot of other things that haven't changed much since the movie was made.

Taken to TPC's headquarters in New Jersey, he is introduced to the head of TPC (Pat Harrington, Jr.), who wants Dr. Schaefer's help in carrying out their plan. TPC has developed a "modern electronic miracle", the Cerebrum Communicator (CC), a microelectronic device that can communicate wirelessly with any other CC in the world. Once implanted in the brain, the user need only think of the number of the person they wish to reach, and are instantly connected, thus eliminating the need for The Phone Company's massive and expensive-to-maintain wired infrastructure. (The operation of the CC is shown in animation that parodies the animated sequences in the Bell Telephone Science Series television programs.)

For this to work, every human being will be assigned a number instead of a name, and the CC prenatally implanted. Dr. Schaefer is "requested" to assist TPC by blackmailing the President into pushing through the required legislation.

Masters and Kropotkin use their superspy abilities to come to Schaefer's rescue. They hand Schaefer an M16 rifle that Schaefer gleefully uses on The Phone Company's security staff. The three emerge victorious from the ensuing bloodbath, but months later, as Dr. Schaefer and his spy friends are enjoying a Christmas reunion, animatronic executives from TPC look on approvingly, while "Joy to the World" plays in the background.

RTE Sells ‘Genealogy Roadshow’ Format Rights to PBS for US Remake

31 May 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
In a major international format sale for RTE, one of their original commissions produced by Big Mountain Productions - ‘Genealogy Roadshow’, originally presented by Derek Mooney - has been licensed to PBS in the US.

A new version of the programme, in which a team of travelling experts attempt to piece together ordinary people’s family histories, will now premiere in the US in September.

Big Mountain’s US agent Pat Quinn negotiated the deal with PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) in the US, marking the first international license for the format with several other territories also currently in discussion.

The US version will be produced by Krasnow Productions (‘The Weakest Link’, ‘Average Joe’) and will initially focus on participants from Nashville, Austin, Detroit and San Francisco.
