First, how about this doozy?
Woman's husband thinks he has her killed, and then she appears at her own funeral to confront him.
Serves him right. And why didn't he demand proof from the people he ordered to make the hit of his partner's demise?
"Is it my eyes?” she recalled him saying. “Is it a ghost?”
Nope, no ghost. It's you spending the next nine years of your life in prison.
Then there is the Ted Cruz fraud story that just won't go away. It seems that the "born again" Canadian Christian has been up to some very unChristian like behavior.
"Ted Cruz has won the Iowa caucus, but he only did so after rampant accusations of cheating which have all been backed up by evidence – and now Cruz has apologized for a dirty trick that his campaign played on Ben Carson. The Cruz campaign sent emails instructing its supporters in Iowa to tell Carson’s supporters that Carson had already dropped out of the race, so they’d change their votes in favor of Cruz instead. And it’s far from the only documented instance of Ted Cruz cheating in Iowa."
Shame on you, Ted.
Sunday is the Super Bowl, and it's the "thug" versus America's golden boy for all the marbles.
But guess who is in the news for all the wrong reasons? Yep, the golden boy.
"Charlie Sly, responding to a report in The Washington Post that said Peyton Manning's lawyers sent investigators to his home before the release of an Al-Jazeera America documentary in December, says he didn't believe investigators were there to intimidate him into cooperation.
Speaking to Outside The Lines on Thursday night about the investigators, Sly said: "Those guys were great guys. Like, very good guys. Very professional."
Sly is the Indiana pharmacist at the center of the Al-Jazeera America documentary that aired Dec. 27. In it, the network reported that Manning's wife had received shipments of human growth hormone. Manning has denied the allegation, calling it "completely fabricated, complete trash, garbage." In the documentary, Sly -- caught on hidden camera -- named several professional athletes as possible dopers.
According to Brownsburg, Indiana, police, the two investigators went to the home of Sly's parents on Dec. 22 looking for him. Sly's sister, apparently alarmed, called 911 and said the men claimed to be law enforcement. Police responded, but the men provided identification and were invited into the family home. Sly was not there at the time. No arrests were made, and no incident report was filed.
Sly would not say when he spoke to the investigators.
Manning's lawyers launched the private probe shortly after Al-Jazeera America started contacting athletes who would be named in the documentary in December.
They hired investigators to identify, locate and interrogate Sly and sent a lawyer to examine the medical records of Manning and his wife, Ashley, at the Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine in Indianapolis, according to Ari Fleischer, the former White House press secretary and current crisis-management consultant hired by the Denver Broncos quarterback."

"Crisis management consultant"?! OK then. Folks, choose your heroes carefully, remember what happened to another golden boy a few years back.
Speaking of illegal drugs, If you don't think that we still have a drug problem in America, consider this: Border patrol agents busted a shipment of $172 million dollars worth of cocaine today. That's a lot of yayo. Somebody is going to have some splaining to do.
Finally, we know that terrorist are evil people, but apparently they are pretty dumb as well.
"A wheelchair bound suicide bomber may have been responsible for the explosion which tore a hole in the side of a jet in Somalia, investigators have said.
They said the suspected terrorist, thought to be part of the Al-Shabaab Islamist group, may have faked a disability to bypass security checks at Mogadishu airport.
The suspected bomber is also thought to be the man who was sucked out of the plane after blowing a hole in the fuselage, shortly after the plane filled with more than 70 passengers took off from the Somali capital. The man who fell from the plane has been named by local officials as Abdullahi Abdisalam Borleh, 55, from Somaliland, but they did not confirm if he was the suicide bomber." [Source]
