BARACK OBAMA, BALTIMORE RAVENS, A MILLION PENNIES, AND UNDERWATER CEMETERY
OBAMA TAKING FOCUS OFF CLINTON, BAD MOVE.
Obama seems to think he has things sewed up with the Democrats. Maybe he has and maybe he hasn’t. Yes he’s picked up a few more “superdelegates” but, neither candidate has or can get enough support to actually claim the nomination before the convention. Obama seems to shifting his focus away from Clinton and onto McCain looking to a future he doesn’t have yet. Sort of counting his chickens before they’ve hatched. It shows his inexperience in the political arena. This is alright by me because, I don’t think he can do the job anyway. He’s not experienced. Heck he hasn’t done the job he was originally elected for in Illinois. He’s a good speaker, yes, but this doesn’t equate to good foreign or domestic policy. Rhetoric doesn’t get the job done. Just what we need is another four years of someone screwing up the office of the Presidency. People need to wake up and make him do the job he was elected for in the first place before they give him another one.
BALTIMORE RAVENS BRAWL AT MINICAMP
Well this is quite a way to start out putting your team together, with an onfield fight. We’re not talking just a couple of players, we’re talking the whole team. John Harbaugh, the coach that replaced Brian Billick after nine years, is shrugging the incident off. “Guys are competing, so tempers flare a little bit,” Harbaugh said. Is this some kind of new concept for creating team spirit by beating the crap out of each other? It seems to me that the only threat the Ravens will be in the NFL this year is to each other. They’ll all be on the injured list before season starts. Way to keep those players healthy coach.
FOURTH-GRADER COLLECTS ONE MILLION PENNIES FOR HIS SCHOOL
Andrew Niemi of Carlton, Michigan has collected one million pennies for his school. He has been collecting them since 2006 and has held fundraisers to make his goal. Last week he presented a $10,000 check to St. Patrick’s School. The money will go towards equipment and school supplies. That’s a lot of copper. Who says pennies don’t add up. Well, this ought to get him the benefit of the doubt on his tests.
UNDERWATER CEMETERY IN FLORIDA
In 45 feet of water, divers have created an underwater cemetery. It’s meant as a final resting place for those that had a passion for the sea. It consists of underwater sculptures and has room for 850 remains. The Neptune Memorial Reef is about 3 1/4 miles of Key Biscayne and is meant as a diver’s attraction as well as a resting place. A person’s ashes are mixed with a special cement and then placed in a mold. A bronze plaque is then attached to a cement sculpture as a memorial creating the underwater pantheon of cement objects for divers. This is seriously weird. Talk about sleeping with the fishes.
