I came home tonight to catch a eye-popper on the news. Little Jesse Imeson… a kid I used to babysit back when I was 13 or so, is now apparently going around killing people.
Here's my shot at a PSA. If you see this guy, call the cops.
Even back then he was angry enough to put his fist through a window and damn near uncontrollable.
I wasn't surprised to learn late last year that he'd been arrested for petty crimes like purse snatching, but murder? Well… I suppose on some level I'm just deeply saddened. His mom seemed like a nice lady but I don't think she had much hope of controlling him.
I just hope his little brother and sister turned out better than he did. They were nice kids.
I'm only posting this because I enjoyed reading it and figure others may as well.
I don't check the BBC news site all that often, but every now and then I'll find a gem posted there that makes me smile.
Mayor Miller seems to be all butt-hurt over the fact that city council turned down his proposals on how to gouge the residents of Toronto for more money.
Now he has to cut costs, and one such cost being cut is a 1.2 million dollar renovation to his own office.
How the hell can an office renovation cost 1.2 million dollars?? Does he not live in the same world that the rest of us do? Does he not realize that most of the people in the city he is governing can't even dream about some day owning a home that might cost anywhere near what he felt justified in spending to renovate his office?
This guy is a joke. The fact that he approved this project in the first place while crying about how broke our city is shows plainly where his priorities lie.
I'm sure the city has more than enough money from the taxes we're paying now. If it weren't for the politicians spreading it around amongst themselves and their friends, we wouldn't have to hear about how tight the purse strings are.
I wonder if now is still a good time to get into the plastic bin making business. Of course, I'd need friends in the right places to make that profitable…
