ATTENTION, NORTH RIDGEVILLE (OH) AREA CRIMINALS:

Therefore, we are requesting that all criminals immediately begin abiding by standard “Freeze Tag” rules. If one of our K-9s touches you, you are then frozen until an officer puts handcuffs on you, at which time you are unfrozen. If there is more than one criminal fleeing, you’re allowed to unfreeze each other, but again, if the dogs touch you then you must re-freeze. Also, under no circumstances are tag backs allowed.

EDDIE IS A GOOD BOY

One of the K-9 dogs, a rookie named Eddie, "took off like a rocket" and tracked the suspect through an industrial area, past a machinery business, over two chain link fences, past a storage facility and into a nearby apartment complex property, sheriff's officials said in their report.

K-9 Eddie then tracked the suspect to a row of juniper bushes, where the dog dove in twice. The second time he "contacted the suspect's backside," according to deputies' reports.

THURSDAY NIGHT THRILLER

Tonight we will write a thriller novel. It will begin with a sentence and a half, which I'll write. From that point on, each commenter will complete the current sentence, then write the first half of the next sentence. Write as many words as you want, but stick to the format of completing the current sentence, then writing half of the next one. Do not post consecutive comments; after you post, let someone else add to it. (There are bound to be simultaneous comments, which could mess everything up. We will deal with that problem by not caring about it.)

HERE IS THE BEGINNING OF THE NOVEL:

The president of the United States frowned at the map in the situation room, then turned to special agent Bart Probe.

"Unless you can stop them," he said, "the entire world is about to be

TAKE IT AWAY, COMMENTERS.

 

IN THAT CASE, SIR, YOU ARE FREE TO RESUME THE DEMONSTRATION

An ex-con arrested for allegedly hitting and choking his girlfriend told Florida cops that he was not actually attacking the woman, but rather demonstrating “how I was previously arrested for domestic battery,” according to a court filing.

TUESDAY OPEN THREAD

Is there ANY good news to discuss? Yes! Yes there is! HBO Max (whatever that is) is releasing an updated version of Looney Tunes and the trailer looks pretty darned good.

Everything else is bad.

EVERY NOW AND THEN, WE RECEIVE A TRULY WONDROUS PRESS RELEASE

This is one:

Gender divisiveness is one of the most pervasive issues that plagues both the world of yesterday, and unfortunately, the world of today. In almost every major industry, opportunities for females to flourish are limited or less so than those presented to men, and while this gap has grown smaller year by year, it still exists in even the most progressive first world countries. Because of the impressive scope of this problem, there are up and coming entrepreneurs and activists working to bring power to women in all corners of the market. And many have already made a lasting impact. Meet Anthony Osorio, the founder of the Booty King LLC.

MONDAY OPEN THREAD

Here's a possible theme for this evening's Comment-a-Palooza: Song lyrics, both good and bad.

For an example of good lyrics, consider the first verse of "Maybellene," by Chuck Berry, who could definitely write him some songs:

As I was motivatin' over the hill

I saw Maybellene in a Coup de Ville

Cadillac rollin' on a open road

Nothin' outrun my V-8 Ford

If you don't want to know how that story turns out, you are not human.

For an example of bad lyrics, consider the opening lines of "Islands in the Stream," which was written by the Bee Gees and became a hit for Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. Here at the blog we are a fan of all these artists. However, consider:

Baby when I met you there was peace unknown

I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb

With all due respect to Kenny, Dolly and the brothers Gibb, our reaction, when we hear those words, is: Huh?

Anyway, this could be something to talk about. Or not! We are past caring.
