Racine Equality Project Files Ethics Complaint

Yesterday, the Racine Equality Project filed an ethics complaint asking the City of Racine Ethics Committee "to investigate and sanction the City of Racine Mayor and other administrative staff persons involved in the manipulations and collusion process of our local community access channel CAR25."  The press release then goes on to say that such shenanigans are nothing new in Racine and requests an investigation of  "all other bidding processes that have taken place under this administration."

Here's the press release:

Missing Wife Found

The day after his wife disappeared In a kayaking accident, an Anchorage man answered his door to find two grim-faced Alaska State Troopers.
"We're sorry Mr. Wilkens, but we have some information about your wife", said one of the troopers.
"Tell me! Did you find her?” Wilkens exclaimed.
The troopers looked at each other. One said, "We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news.
Which would you like to hear first?" Fearing the worst, Mr. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first."
The trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in Kachemak Bay."
"Oh my God!", exclaimed Wilkens. Swallowing hard, he asked, "What's the good news?"
The trooper continued, "When we pulled her up, she had 12 twenty-five-pound king crabs and 6 good-sized Dungeness crabs clinging to her, and we feel you are entitled to a share in the catch."
Stunned, Mr. Wilkens demanded, "If that's the good news, then what's the great news?"
The trooper replied, "We're gonna pull her up again tomorrow."

"Wright's Law: A Unique Teacher Imparts Real Life Lessons"

Good story. It left me crying.

21 tons of Muenster cheese stolen in Cashton

Okay, I give, why would you want to steal 42,000 lbs of cheese? What the hell would you do with it?

An Illinois man accused of stealing 21 tons of Wisconsin cheese has been arrested in New Jersey.

New Jersey authorities say the 34-year-old man from Plainfield, Ill., was arrested Tuesday afternoon. New Jersey State Police said Wednesday the man was driving a refrigerated truck carrying 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese.

The cheese company, K&K Cheese in Cashton valued the cargo at $200,000. The suspect used false paperwork to obtain the cheese, authorities said.

Company spokesman Kevin Everhart says K&K can't guarantee the cheese hasn't been tampered with, so it didn't ask for the product back.

If the cheese passes inspections by health authorities, New Jersey State Police said it will be donated to charity.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my chilly children!  How are you?  Somebody forgot to throw the Winter OFF and Spring ON switches.  The wind makes it worse.  I’m still wearing winter garb.  The coats and boots will be closeted once we get a semblance of spring weather.  In the meantime, brrr. 

It’s been a difficult week because someone very close to me passed away unexpectedly last week.  My advice is, if you’ve been meaning to tell someone that you love him/her, don’t wait.  Do it now.  No time is guaranteed us.  Whether family member, friend, or lover, let them know how you feel.  While I mourn this loss, a crass phrase that a friend of mine favors comes to mind: “Chicken one day, feathers the next.”  Oh my, but it’s true.  We never know when Death will come knocking on our door.

On an entirely different note, another friend of mine, who lives in an apartment building, pointed out the infestation of bedbugs that is plaguing some areas of Racine.  He wondered if my psychic powers could be put to use in combating the little bloodsuckers.  The low intelligence of insects in general prevents me from connecting with them psychically.  However, one of my B-Gon products might be just the thing for you.  Madame Zoltar’s® BedBug-B-Gon Bomb™ guarantees a 100% kill ratio for a quarter mile radius.  The bedbugs, and all other forms of life, will die.  All you have to do is place the bomb in the center of your house, pull the cap, and run like hell.  If you’re not capable of quick flight, you might consider wearing a gas mask.  Whatever you do, don’t breathe any of the gas.  After a week, a crew can decontaminate your home and make it relatively safe for you and your family.  Just don’t breathe too deeply for the first month or so. 

Talking about bedbugs makes me start itching all over.  That’s the psychic power of suggestion.  Talking about food makes me hungry.  Talking about a cool glass of water makes me thirsty.  And talking about money makes me greedy.  Let’s talk about something else.

Some daffodils and early tulips are coming up near the foundations of buildings.  If it looks like we’re going to have a deep freeze, snow is a good insulator for the plants.  I can hardly wait for spring to spring.  Spring is my favorite time of year.  I love the sights and sounds and smells of spring.  The aroma of the good earth is intoxicating.  The birds chirp and twitter deliriously.  Spring is a time of rebirth.  Soon, very soon, my dears, the cabin fever will be dispelled completely.  Soon there will be dancing in the streets.

Thank you for stopping by to read my blog today.  I love company, especially the Irregular kind. It’s a treat to have visitors.  Thank you, again.

Be careful, my dears.  There’s still plenty of snow and ice out there.  It may be around for awhile.  Last year we had the warm winter.  Maybe this year it’s the cool summer.  Be aware of your surroundings.  I love all of you.  Rantallion!

The JTI site has been bombed with spam all day Sunday and into today.  There has been some sort of failure of Google's anti-spam measures.  Most spam is still caught, or at least questioned, but too much is getting through.  Because of this, we are not allowing anonymous comments until Google fixes the problem.  Unfortunately, this also eliminates the option to type in  a name and comment, such as jedwis does.  At a minimum, you'll need an AIM,  LiveJournal, WordPress, or TypePad ID to post comments.  We're very sorry about this because the JTI stands for free speech.   That has been destroyed by spambots from hell.  We hope to re-enable anonymous posting as soon as possible.
