Overland ParkPolice Chief John Douglass said at a news conference Sunday evening that a person who had been reported to be in critical condition earlier was among three killed in the attacks, which apparently occurred minutes apart.
Confirmed : Jews told to register with pro-Russian forces in the East Ukraine or face deportation. America reacts first
The Jews need to get out of the Ukraine as soon as possible. Israel and the U.S. should arrange for that. It will be hard leaving their country and starting over, but we cannot have another Holocaust.

John Kerry over night called this “Registration of Jewish people” in Ukraine as “grotesque” I blogged it already and ask people PLEASE, for the sake of us all to reblog this and get word out, this is a total repeat of the start of WWII. Russia stopped WWII, how Ironic they are about to start WWIII

Pro-Russia separatists attacked a military base in east Ukraine on Thursday as diplomats gathered in Geneva for crisis talks. Three separatists were killed in the clash, making it the deadliest yet in the 10-day uprising. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Kiev’s attempt to crush the protests by force was pushing the country into an “abyss.” The White House threatened Russia with fresh sanctions if it doesn’t defuse tensions.

1. Ferry sinks off South Korean coast
At least four people died and 295 were missing Wednesday after a South Korean passenger ferry carrying 450 people capsized and sank off the country’s south coast. About 320 of the people on board were high-school students traveling with teachers to the resort island of Jeju. Search vessels and helicopters hurried to the scene to pluck people from the stricken ship. Authorities said they could not immediately determine what went wrong. [CNN, The Guardian]

Caterpillars, moths, butterflies and all creatures great and small,
My trusty laptop will not come on. It has been my tried and true machine for blogging. It was working well last night. I am currently on my old XP Desktop that is not updated.
Until I can get my laptop back running, or a new one and have the files transferred, there’s not much I can do that requires a computer. Hopefully it won’t be long. This is simply a cocoon experience and transformation into a life of freedom shall immerse.
Please feel free to use this thread to discuss whatever is on your mind.
Since the verdict in George Zimmerman’s 2nd degree murder trial, I’ve tried not to post much that rehashes arguments that happened before and during his trial. However, there has been a repeat of something on Twitter that compels me to go into detail. The same argument appears to come up at least once a month. That issue is that Zimmerman said, “When I walked back towards him.”
Because of Zimmerman’s story that he first came face-to-face with Trayvon at the “T,” some people have not thought outside that box to what Zimmerman wrote and said before he had time to omit and add to his story by the time of his re-enactment. To say it another way, some people believe that Zimmerman saw Trayvon on the dog path and try to reconcile “when I walked back towards him” to have occurred on the dog path. Zimmerman did not find Trayvon on the dog path. Rather, he found Trayvon on Retreat View Circle.
I sought out someone who is good at video animation and has the software to show rather than only tell. Not having those resources myself, I did compile two videos in effort to show what I heard Zimmerman say about his actions after getting out of his truck. The following is more of a bullet point presentation that connects the dots and I’ve embedded the two videos to support the following. Below is also a map of Retreat at Twin Lakes indicating Trayvon’s and Zimmerman’s positions when Zimmerman said “When I walked back towards him.” I’ve also placed “BG” to indicate the back gate.
Those who followed the case will recognize the recorded non-emergency call, Zimmerman’s statements, and Rachel Jeantel’s testimony. Rachel was there as an audio witness only. She was not familiar with the area of Retreat at Twin Lakes where Trayvon was staying with his dad. Rachel could only testify what Trayvon said to her.
We should consider the following as happening simultaneously with Zimmerman talking to dispatch and afterwards, while Trayvon is talking with Jeantel. Read the rest of this entry
An update: It is now being considered a hate crime.

“Today is a sad and very tragic day,” Douglass said. “As you might imagine we are only three hours into this investigation. There’s a lot of innuendo and a lot of assertions going around. There is really very little hardcore information.”

Bill Rehkopf, a KDKA radio host and Franklin Regional High School graduate, reported on air that he was shocked by the stabbings. He said he kept thinking, “It doesn’t happen here, it can’t happen here.”
Sadly, it did happen.
Imagine being 16 years old, and coming to court in a hospital gown and shackles. That is what happened to Alex Hribal who stabbed or slashed 19 students and a police officer at a suburban Pittsburgh high school. Alex also injured his own hands. Alex, a sophomore, brought two knives to Franklin Regional Senior High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania on Wednesday. The knives have been described as 8 to 10 inches long.
A doctor who treated six of the victims said most of them didn’t immediately know what happened. “They just felt pain and noticed they were bleeding,” Dr. Timothy VanFleet, chief of emergency medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, told CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield.
“Almost all of them said they didn’t see anyone coming at them. It apparently was a crowded hallway and they were going about their business, and then just felt pain and started bleeding.”
At least five students were critically wounded, including a boy whose liver was pierced by a knife thrust that narrowly missed his heart and aorta. Some victims suffered deep abdominal puncture wounds.
As of Friday, 8 students remained hospitalized. Four are in critical condition.
Student Mia Meixner was standing at her locker. She said that she saw three students help a bleeding freshman, saying they were taking him to a nurse. Then she saw a senior girl she knew.
“She was standing by the cafeteria doors. … She was gushing blood down her arm.” Meixner dropped her books and went to help the girl. Read the rest of this entry
I would like to see someone donate porta-potties, putting them right outside the polling places.

I read this headline and my mouth dropped. What the hell is wrong with the GOP? I suppose in their mind, the current political climate makes an insane rule like this quite sane.
President Bill Clinton spoke on this very issue yesterday while touting the 50th anniversary of the voting rights act of 1964 at the LBJ Library in Austin Texas.
Clinton spent much of his speech addressing last year’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down key provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which was also signed into law by Johnson. The ruling allows several states with a history of discriminatory voting laws, mostly in the south, to change election laws without federal approval.
“It sent a signal throughout the country,” Clinton said…

Caterpillars, moths, butterflies, and all creatures great and small,
It’s not a real vacation such as leaving town and not having to cook and clean. Some personal business is calling my name and I can also use some rest. Don’t worry, because I’ll check in for the administrative stuff, such as checking on comments in moderation, and embedding photos when links are in comments.
Before I sign off temporarily, I want to thank our new subscribers. I look forward to visiting their blogs in the near future. If anyone else is interested in doing the same, check under “likes” for their gravatars and click on them. Their blogs are listed on their profiles.
Lately, the children gone too soon have been on my mind. My heart continues crying out for them because no matter the law, trial, verdicts or even suicide by their killers, man does not have the power to resurrect. Read the rest of this entry
