Idiot sightings and whatnot

Today’s Idiot Sighting
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: “Too many deer were being hit by cars” and he didn’t want them to cross there anymore. ” This one was from Kingman, KS.

Tomorrow starts what is probably my favorite month. And not for the reason that most people would think. I just like this time of year. August usually seems too hot. October usually seems like the start of dreariness and cold. September has the changing leaves (not that I like the raking, I only have one freakin tree and all the neighbors leaves end up in the yard), and just the right balance of cold, warm, and wind. I love it.

An interesting thing from the other night with watching the Henry Morgan pirate account. Morgan actually sued one of his former co-horts who wrote a book about him for slander. He had written that when Morgan took Puerto Bello that he had blown up the inner tower with hundreds of people in it. That was disproved because there was proof that a few years later the tower still stood. Another point of contention, was that Morgan had made priests and nuns raise the scaling ladders when they attacked the inner wall. The idea was that the spanish soldiers wouldn’t shoot at them because they feared for their souls if they would kill a nun or priest. Somehow this was proved untrue also, I can’t remember exactly how.

So it seemed that Morgan was almost a gentlemen pirate. He was ruthless, yes, but only attacked Spanish holdings, for which he had been commissioned by his King. The final most interesting tidbit was, that after Morgan’s death, an earthquake caused his grave to be covered up by the ocean. The sea took back it’s own.

Rockstar:INXS is really showing that our country still has a skin color problem. The last two weeks has seen Ty in the bottom three of viewer voting, which means he has to sing an INXS song and face their possible elimination. Tonight was his third time. I can’t remember what performance got him there the first time, but I thought that his last two performances that were voted on were amazing. But yet he ended up in the bottom three. I think it’s very sad. Hey maybe this should have been my idiot sighting.
