One little note about Buffalo…

Tonight was my last chance to get out and have a little fun relax…what have you.

For me it was also a work night unfortunately and that made me play Mr Responsible in the face of convincing a bunch of people to take the guy from Dallas out for a big all-nighter…

That said, a really cool Bartender at a Chile’s named Kelly really made me feel welcome, she’s got a badass attitude and I swear if I’d had more time here I’d have totally asked her out or at least to let me drag her around town in search of good pictures(warning this takes days!!!)

That said, cheers Buffalo (and Kelly!). You may be so lame as to black out your home hockey games…but it doesn’t stop from enjoying the city!

Salu!

Student killed burglar with a Samurai sword…

Yep…it happened. A burglar finally chose the WRONG house.
Took a few swipes from a frightened teenager with a sword.
Now authorities are seriously considering charging the teenager.
If you want details, I suggest skipping CNN and CBS, and go to the Baltimore Sun article, it has far more information.

Authorities are determining whether the student will face criminal charges, Guglielmi said.
-CNN

Police are interviewing the student and his three roommates and are talking to prosecutors about whether to file charges.
-CBS

Okay…CNN’s artice is a joke and makes you totally clueless as to what is happening…

CBS pulls a CNN, and leaves us with even MORE questions…
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/15/national/main5312113.shtml

…but THEN…to the readers rescue…comes some diligent journalism and research…kudos to By Brent Jones, Liz F. Kay and Jill Rosen from the Baltimore Sun on a VERY spot-on job.

…and to be clear…In Texas, this teenager would be getting a big pat on the back right now…not facing possible charges.
An environment where the victim could EVER be legally liable for defending his home and friends is unthinkable. I really hope this kid doesnt have to go through the system because he killed a guy defending his home.

…by WhoIsTheBaldGuy

What one would think to be common sense…

…occurs in WhoIsTheBaldGuy’s ideas constantly. This guy is constantly not only coming up with awesome marketing ideas (at least one of which I plan on getting his permission to use when my book is done)…he’s literally demonstrating how easy it is to get those ideas rolling.

You can find him at http://www.whoisthebaldguy.com/sharing_bald_ideas.html. I follow him on Twitter as well. And willl usually repost his vids because they are usually spot on humorous or so simple it would be stupid NOT to employ him.

Anyhow, have a look! If you like him show him some love, follow him and leave comments!
