Worlds coming together

Brought to you by the Assad Family:

Syrian warplanes launched a series of strikes on the outskirts of Damascus Saturday as President Bashar al-Assad’s regime pressed a bid to drive back rebels, a monitoring group said.

Fresh fighting meanwhile erupted in several flashpoint areas around the capital, while the army renewed its shelling on besieged rebel areas of the central city of Homs, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Meanwhile, in a nation not engaged in a civil war…but brought to you by the NRA:

Chicago had a violent Fourth Of July weekend, with nine dead and 48 injured from shootings across the city as of Sunday morning.

Two boys are among the injured, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Funny how similar the violence and death is…yet one is considered an international outrage while the other is just another weekend in gun-loving America.

Six In The Morning



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
