Corporal Michael Wilson, 42, died in the line of duty Monday night, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office. Wilson was responding to a domestic disturbance at the Lakes of Tuscana Apartments on Veterans Boulevard in Port Charlotte (less than an hour north of me). Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell tells WINK News that Wilson was immediately met with gunfire upon arrival at the apartments. The suspected shooter remained inside one of the apartments. Shortly after midnight, SWAT officers gained entry to that unit and discovered the suspected shooter inside dead. According to the sheriff's office, Wilson was 21-year veteran of the agency and the first Charlotte deputy to die in the line duty in 35 years. A family friend says Wilson leaves behind a wife and children.
Sixty-eight years ago today, the Japanese city of Hiroshima was the primary target of the first nuclear bombing mission on 6 August, 1945, with Kokura and Nagasaki as alternative targets. The 393d Bombardment Squadron B-29 Enola Gay, piloted by Tibbets, took off from North Field airbase on Tinian, about six hours flight time from Japan. The Enola Gay (named after Tibbets' mother) was accompanied by two other B-29s. The Great Artiste, commanded by Major Charles Sweeney, carried instrumentation, and a then-nameless aircraft later called Necessary Evil, commanded by Captain George Marquardt, served as the photography aircraft. The release at 08:15 (Hiroshima time) went as planned, and the gravity bomb known as "Little Boy", a gun-type fission weapon with about 140 lb of uranium-235, took 43 seconds to fall from the aircraft flying at 31,060 feet to the predetermined detonation height about 1,968 feet above the city. The Enola Gay traveled 11.5 miles before it felt the shock waves from the blast. ue to crosswind, it missed the aiming point, the Aioi Bridge, by approximately 800 ft and detonated directly over Shima Surgical Clinic. It created a blast equivalent to 16 kilotons of TNT. The radius of total destruction was about one mile, with resulting fires across 4.4 square miles. Some 70,000–80,000 people, or some 30% of the population of Hiroshima, were killed by the blast and resultant firestorm, and another 70,000 injured. Over 90% of the doctors and 93% of the nurses in Hiroshima were killed or injured—most had been in the downtown area which received the greatest damage.
Operation Downfall was the codename for the Allied plan for the invasion of Japan near the end of World War II. The planned operation was abandoned when Japan surrendered following the Soviet invasion of Manchuria and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In a letter sent to Gen. Curtis LeMay from Gen. Lauris Norstad, when LeMay assumed command of the B-29 force on Guam, Norstad told LeMay that if an invasion took place, it would cost the US "half a million" dead. Nearly 500,000 Purple Heart medals were manufactured in anticipation of the casualties resulting from the invasion of Japan. If Operation Downfall had taken place, it would have been the largest amphibious operation in human history. With that in mind, Japan is building their largest
aircraft carrier destroyer to date. I know, kind of a holy shit moment, amirite?
What worries me is "Curtis was charged with fourth-degree animal cruelty, and may face up to 18 months in prison. However, since she is a first-time offender, she is not expected to serve any time." Sentence her ass to a year in prison, and then I'll be happy that justice was served.

These guys aren't just fans, or even superfans. They are batsh*t crazy die-hards who live and breath sports, and who also happen to be extremely comfortable with their exceedingly furry bodies. So what do they do for the game? They shave signs into their chest and back hair.
Ernie, Sorry to kill your Billy Bajema story but that pic at a Ravens Tailgate is a few years old when at that time 86 was Todd Heap's number, our previous top rated tight end. Regards, Tom
Hey Ernie, Long time reader here. Even though you were right about who presently wears 86 on the Ravens, People round here wear 86 for Todd Heap. David
HAHAHAHA! So it looks like the angry rhubarb lady is getting more than her 15 minutes of fame.
The sabre saw is a powered or unpowered hand-held reciprocating saw. The sabre saw consists of a reciprocating cutting implement, usually a toothed blade, to chiefly cut through wood and other various materials. Its primary use is to slice material handily, rather than using the traditional circular saw in the application of building homes. It's also an advantageous implement when cutting into tight crevices. It is primarily used in metal working in the building industry, in situations where the object to be cut cannot be hindered by the frame of the hand held implement holding the blade.
From Dusk till Dawn is a 1996 American action horror film directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino. It stars Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Tarantino and Juliette Lewis. Although not very successful at the box office, the film has achieved cult status. After successfully escaping to Mexico, two bank robbers and their hostages arrive at the "Titty Twister", a strip club/brothel in the middle of a desolate part of Mexico, to meet their contact Carlos at dawn. Chaos subsequently ensues as the employees, the strippers and the house band (Tito & Tarantula) are all revealed to be vampires. One of the dancers locks the door, and the vampires start feeding on all bar patrons. Only Seth, Jacob, Kate, Scott, a biker named Sex Machine and a Vietnam veteran trucker named Frost survive the attack and quickly establish an alliance in order to survive through the night. Seth convinces the group that Jacob is their best weapon, if he rediscovers his faith, as they also figure out how forming a cross with two objects helps fend off the vampires. In late 2013 it was reported that a television series inspired by the film will be written, produced and directed by Rodriguez. The show will explore and expand on the characters and story from the film, providing a wider scope and richer Aztec mythology.
