Participant at KKK initiation wounded after shots fired into sky

JOHNSON CITY, Tennessee (AP) -- A bullet fired in the air during a Ku Klux Klan initiation ceremony came down and struck a participant in the head, critically injuring him, authorities said.

Gregory Allen Freeman, 45, was charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in the Saturday night incident that wounded Jeffery S. Murr, 24.

About 10 people, including two children, had gathered for the ceremony. The man who was being initiated was blindfolded, tied with a noose to a tree and shot with paintball guns as Freeman fired a pistol in the air to provide the sound of real gunfire, Sheriff Fred Phillips said.

A bullet struck Murr on the top of the head and exited at the bottom of his skull, authorities said.

All 21 Jump Street an' shit

Five Redmond High School students were arrested on campus yesterday in a drug bust that was two months in the making, police said.

After receiving citizen complaints about drug activity around campus, Redmond police enrolled an undercover officer who posed as a student for the last month, according to police spokeswoman Stacey Holland.

(I personally can't believe that Peter DeLuise and Dustin Nguyen can still pass for high schoolers.)

Sun 'sheds its skin like a snake'.

Astronomers have discovered a key fact required to understand the Sun's 11-year cycle of activity.

Sunspots and flares on the Sun's surface follow the cycle, but expelled gas clouds do not.

The expelled gas takes away the Sun's old magnetic skin allowing a new one to emerge to start a new cycle.

Michael Jackson? Never heard of 'im.

The compilation CD could be Jackson’s last chance for salvation. Matt Mason, deputy editor of Smash Hits, the teen magazine that thrived on the Thriller-era Jackson, said: “We have no current plans to feature Michael Jackson. He would need a big radio hit to get back in and it doesn’t look like that will happen now. His recent output has been sporadic and our readers won’t know who he is.”

myths over miami

To homeless children sleeping on the street, neon is as comforting as a night-light. Angels love colored light too. After nightfall in downtown Miami, they nibble on the NationsBank building -- always drenched in a green, pink, or golden glow. "They eat light so they can fly," eight-year-old Andre tells the children sitting on the patio of the Salvation Army's emergency shelter on NW 38th Street. Andre explains that the angels hide in the building while they study battle maps. "There's a lot of killing going on in Miami," he says. "You want to fight, want to learn how to live, you got to learn the secret stories."

The Southern Bangkok Criminal Court found gynaecologist Wisut Boonkasemsanti guilty of the gruesome murder, in which he stood accused of disposing of the dismembered body by flushing it down two hotel toilets.

 
Japanese woman, 23, enjoys talking over coffee, nice guys, and crapping in the freezer.

"I would like to meet someone nice. I think the men I have met are coming on too strong and It's not comfortable so I want to meet a nice man. I also have a special situation where i am looking to meet a good man for freindship who also has some freezer space because I have too many defects in my freezer and there is no room for any more. How did this happen. I had a stomach trouble and i went to a doctor -holisitic- who consulted me and told me he needed to see samples of something - I don't want to mention the word, He said take seran wrap and put on the toilet with some space and defect into it. I did this and tried to make an appointment to give him the defect but he is very busy and I can not reach him. I am worried because I paid him so I put the defect in the freezer until i can meet him."

teenage tranny robbers

Five transgender teens who attend Harvey Milk HS posed as female prostitutes, and then robbed their tricks by claiming to be undercover cops willing to let them go free in exchange for cash and credit cards, sources said.

(I know for a fact, I'm going to get all kinds of weird hits for this one.)

 
Body parts found in leaking FedEx package.

KIRKWOOD, Missouri (AP) -- FedEx workers discovered a shipment of two human legs and an arm when one of the boxes was found leaking at a company depot, police said.

A Las Vegas donor research company sent the limbs to a man who sells body parts to doctors for use in research projects, Kirkwood police spokeswoman Diane Scanga said. The FBI, state agencies and local police determined no laws were broken, she said.

(I love this town.)
 
Cult told my son he was a werewolf

A QUASI-religious cult is using the Internet to recruit teenagers who are encouraged to act as werewolves, howl at the moon and eat raw meat.

Counsellors at the Cult Information Hotline have received several complaints about the group, which has more than 50 members throughout Queensland.
Counsellors and concerned parents said complaints had been made to police and government authorities about the activities of cult members in Housing Commission properties.

A Brisbane mother told last week how her 19-year-old son became involved with the group after meeting members over the Internet.

brain.

It occurs to me that if one were to market an orange juice that didn't have to be shaken before served, then that person would be rolling in the tall dollars.

It's also occured to me that I have nothing better to do than come up with ways to make American life easier, and then complain about it.

Things that piss me off: A running list.

- Fuck P. Diddy and his running of the New York marathon. I fucking ran to the 'fridge yesterday when I realized that we only had one chocolate covered doughnut left. I didn't even do for charity, I did it just because.

If I read one more headline when I start up IE that reads: "Diddy Did It!" or "P. Diddy: The Real Running Man." Or if I have to hear how Sean Combs had to "rise above" having a bad knee and cramps to run in the marathon, I'm starting a fucking race war, do you hear me?

Come talk to me when P. Diddy isn't using shady labor practices (to say nothing of the outright illegal ones) or gives off a shitload of his diamonds to helping kids. Sick kids need giant fucking iced medallions too, ya know. Otherwise, it's just a case of "helping people while other people are watching".


 
citylife.

I ran into someone from highschool over the weekend.

Went out to dinner with the family, went to Chevy's (because my family refuses to eat anything that is different than what they're used to). So, I'm sitting down with my back to the waiter and I hear "Is your name Sam?"

I turn around. And I gaze upon the servers name tag. It reads: Jason. My eyes quickly responding to the fact that my face is stuck in a stupor moves toward the face.

I squint. He speaks.

"Did you go to FZN?"

I swear to god the second after this was the longest second of my life.

"Yeah. What's up, man?"

I shake his hand and chat for a second. He's a terrible server, he spilled beer on my 4 year-old cousin but he was a nice enough dude in highschool and that night, so I made sure to leave him a nice tip.
 
Halloweekend

"I hope your neighbors don't egg me."- Me

Didn't get egged. Did catch a cold/flu though. So, it wasn't a total wash.

I keep planning on doing a week of total original writings (one a day) but I just haven't had the time yet. I miss doing it, maybe next week, as I'm closing in the final pages of DISPOSABLE BOYS. Big announcements are coming on that one.

Rearranged furniture by myself yesterday. Today, I wake and realize that somehow, I've managed to pull every muscle in my buttocks. How I managed to do that and not injure my back, I'll never know. The ass sex jokes have been flying fast and furiously around the house today.

Fuck, this just turned into one of those "this was my day" blogs, didn't it?

Fuck, fuck, fuckitty fuck.
