If his first name had been Rasheed, instead of Robert

the news would be covering the Co Springs story in a very different way.

Most of what I've heard so far is stuff like:

"We'll have to wait & see what his motive may have been"
"We cannot jump to the terrorist angle until we have details"
"He obviously has mental issues"

etc etc..

They are falling all over themselves to NOT call him what he is..
Some have even laid the path with comments like "he didn't even have electricity" (so he couldn't have been egged on by tv commentators/politicians)

He is a Right Wing terrorist , just the same as the KKKers, the Obama-haters who strap on guns to intimidate people

Richard Lui (on UP) did not even really cover this story on Saturday until the 2nd hour..after the weather.. and before they covered it much, he ended the discussion.

CNN delicately broached the terrorist angle..but then dropped it.

Armed gunmen attack Radisson Blu Hotel In Mali (3 desd so far)

Right now, they do not know how many.. US embassy tells Americans to stay home..indoors..

There are 170 people inside the hotel..

CNN has the best current coverage so far

Here's the facebook page for the band in Paris

Not sure of the validity, but supposedly the band is at a police station, but they are not sure about all of the crew


Otis Driftwood "UPDATE 2: The wife of Eagles Of Death Metal drummer Julian Dorio has told The Washington Post that the band members are safe. “We are just holding our breath and saying prayers for everyone,” she says. “He called to say that he loved me and he was safe. Everyone on stage was able to get off.” French president François Hollande has declared a state of emergency and closed the country’s borders."

Girl kicked off cheer-leading team ..won't straighten her hair

HOUSTON - Makayla Fallaw loves tumbling and cheering. She also loves her naturally thick, curly hair. But ... was told to leave her cheerleading team when her mother said she couldn't straighten Makayla's hair to match the rest of the girls for a competition.

Makayla has been practicing at Woodlands Elite Cheer Company's location near her family's home in Tomball five days a week since April, her mother, Jenny Fallaw, said. The family has spent nearly $2,000 on uniforms, makeup, hair bows and fees.


When you see her pics, you will first be amazed at her AGE..

She's 11....

This girl will not be cheer-leading for long..( I hope she;s got a level head on her shoulders)
