While working for an organization that delivers lunches to the elderly, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. The various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs, unfailingly intrigued her. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, “The tooth fairy will never believe this!”
It was a year ago this past Sunday that my department lost our brother in blue, Mike Saffran. Mike was killed in a shootout with a bank robbery suspect who was holding hostages. Devastating doesn’t even began to explain the impact on all of us. Our Police Photographer, Ken, put together a memorial to honor him on this one year anniversary. Ken took the photos during the funeral here in Chesapeake and the graveside service held in Mike’s hometown in Maryland.

I missed a really big deal today…The Langdon Family Reunion in Coats, North Carolina. I was so looking forward to going but an awful cold and a Nor’easter kept me home. I am also disappointed that I missed spending some time with my Aunt Joyce too (I love that woman!). I also missed the opportunity to meet my cousin and master genealogist extraordinaire, Mark Valsame. Sorry Mark. I hope Donnie kept you company and you enjoyed yourself. Aren’t my branch of the Langdons wonderful people?
Well, there’s always next year…
Stunned. Absolutely freaked out. Drusilla stays? Jerry stays? Vivica goes? What’s up with that? Drusilla fans…you are not helping your idol. She shouldn’t be there. She knows she shouldn’t be there. You know she shouldn’t be there…but she’s your idol. Well this is not a popularity contest. These folks work VERY hard to do this. Do you really want your idol to go down in the Dancing with the Stars Ballroom of History alongside P. Miller? That’s exactly what this is beginning to look like and you, her fans, will be to blame. Do her a favor…cut her loose.
Good Lord in Heaven…What was Sara Evans thinking last night? Was that her version of the dance of the dead? I don’t know who did her make-up but that person should be fired forthwith. Aside from looking like the walking dead,
Drusilla Sara looked absolutely evil and she didn’t do much dancing. It seemed like she just walked along behind her partner. I think it’s time for you to go home little girl. Jerry gets a reprieve for one more week.
Enough already! Mark Foley, you are a pervert. Period. End of story. You want to try to blame it on alcohol? Nope…not buying it. Maybe you do have a drinking problem but rehab won’t cure what ails you…you are still a pervert. You want to try to blame it on being abused by your clergyman? Nope…not buying it. Maybe you were abused but you are still a pervert. What’s next? Are you going to blame it all on your mother? Maybe she was too domineering? Not loving enough? Scolded you when you spilled your milk? Maybe so…but you are still a pervert and a shameless excuse for a human being. You are a pedophile. You are a criminal. You belong behind bars for a very, very long time. Oh, and all those people who chose to look the other way while you preyed on young boys? They belong behind bars too…and may God have mercy on your souls…not that any of you had mercy on those innocent boys.
…and that’s How I See It.
