Last night, the Fort Collins Common Council made a decision.
I’m sure he felt about as courageous as the Cowardly Lion. (Kevin’s not here…..now’s my chance!)
Rather than stomp my feet, hold my breath till I turn blue, accuse the entire world of ganging up on me, start a petition, or crawl into the fetal position, I will, instead, resort to the appropriate action: I will respond.
I will post exact quotes that were made and interject my reactions (in red).
One of the biggest news stories of the year was pro wrestler Chris Benoit viciously slaughtering his family and then taking his own life. The murders captured the attention of even non-wrestling fans.
Deeply disturbing is that, as a fan, I used to enjoy watching Benoit perform.
Maxim Magazine has an extensive article detailing Benoit's last days. The lengthy piece describes how Benoit snapped. His brutal actions lead me to believe this was not a case of a "troubled individual." This was a sadistic, cruel, evil man worthy of absolutely no sympathy.
Here's the Maxim article.
A videotape of George Clooney angrily confronting two photographers for driving dangerously has surfaced online.
The star was riding his motorcycle, with girlfriend Sarah Larson, along Los Angeles' Mulholland Drive when he pulled over to tell off the overly aggressive paparazzi.
Clooney and Larson were injured when they were knocked off a Harley Davison motorcycle the actor had rented during a September trip to New Jersey, and the actor was worried another accident would occur if he didn't object to the photographers' irresponsible driving.
In a video of the incident, obtained by TMZ.com, an angry Clooney says, "You broke some laws, I want to find out what your license plate number is."How many laws did you break, pal? ... You cut me up. ... How many people did you put in danger? You drove like a maniac down here. At least understand that you're putting people in danger ..."I've been down on a motorcycle and the last thing I want to do is get thumped."
The two photographers involved then apologized to Clooney, before the actor drove off.And now Clooney is furious that the videotape of him berating a paparazzi for driving dangerously has become a must-see item on the Internet.
Clooney has gone public with his distaste about the fact the guys he raged at have made a small fortune out of the roadside incident.
Speaking to "Entertainment Tonight" on Monday, the actor stated, "This tape, they're selling it all around everywhere ... so that means that these guys who committed all these crimes get rewarded for it.
"There must be a formula for someone that says, 'If you're committing a crime. ... You shouldn't be able to profit off them (tapes).'"It's gotten really dangerous out here."
