A Lady’s Continuing Courage

A

She’s a bundle of enthusiasm, in her late 20’s. And she enjoys life, I mean really enjoys life. Why is that important? Because she has been deaf since birth. At six weeks she was wearing hearing aids. Or should I say her mom was trying to make her wear hearing aids.  She was more inclined to take them out and chew on them.  Not once did she heed the hearing aid battery manufacturer’s warning that...

Judge Takes Away Sean Taylor’s Gun; He’s Murdered With a Gun

J

I often marvel at the coincidences that come into play in a murder. In the case of Sean Taylor, the free safety for the Washington Redskins, there were three. There was a very good program on ID TV last night about this. Sean was at home in Miami rehabbing a knee injury. Coincidence number 1. While at home some thieves had stolen an ATV or two from his home while he was not there. He thought he...

They couldn’t find my name in their computer system to delete it from the automatic call. They said if I received any more calls, to...

T. J.Bunn, Jr. Should Take a Lie Detector Test to Prove He Didn’t Rape Megan Rondini

T

Most stories I write, I side with the police. Not in this case. They loused up big time. Why do I say that? Because they had a potential rape case in front of them, and wound up trying to make the victim the guilty party. In 2015 Megan Rondini was walking down a Tuscaloosa, Alabama street close to a bar. T. J. Bunn, Jr., son of a prominent Tuscaloosa family, and a friend who was with him, picked...

Who did it? Brian Jones. Her murder was unnecessary. Why do I say that? Brian Jones, according to one report, was the roommate of the boy who was dating Brook Baker when she was murdered.
