Tabloid or Factoid? Bush on Cocaine?

June 5, 2008


As a Capitol Hill staffer during the frst GW Bush election, there were rumors floating around about damaging photographs of him involving cocaine and a stripper. Although those photos have not surfaced to date, when I saw this cover of The Globe, I had to laugh not because it was funny but rather because I was not surprised at all. Your thoughts?

Vicious Hit-And-Run on 78-Year Old Man in Connecticut

June 5, 2008

According to police, 78-year-old Angel Torres was crossing the street in Hartford, Connecticut on Friday when he was struck by a car. Watch the video here. What shocks me the most is not only did the the two cars that hit him run, but cars just drove past him without caring. People did not run to his assistance from the sidewalk either. What is the world coming to? In the video, the cars are seen crossing the double yellow line into oncoming traffic before striking Torres. The cars are then seen fleeing the scene, according to police. Torres was transported to Hartford Hospital and remains in critical condition on Thursday. Anyone with information regarding the crash is urged to contact the Hartford Police Department by dialing 860-757-4225.
