    Nicholas Cecil Leading Horse was born into the Sioux Nation in Valentine, Neb., on Christmas Eve 1946. The youngest of Lewis and Margaret Leading Horse’s six children, he would grow up to become Tacoma’s most expensive street drunk. From his mid-40s into his early 60s, he would cost taxpayers an estimated $2,407,100. The money was spent on emergency fire, police and medical care, ambulance rides, food, shelter, detox and sobering services, court and jail time, and rehabilitation efforts. A decade ago, The News Tribune added up Leading Horse’s tab from the previous 10 years and put it in the seven-figure...

    Crittenden County Sheriff Dick Busby didn't even have a gun Thursday when the suspects in the slaying of two West Memphis police officers jumped out of their minivan and began spraying bullets at him and his deputy chief. "They got out shooting with what they had," Busby said Saturday from his home in Marion, hours after his release from the Regional Medical Center at Memphis. "We got back in the car," Busby said. "Then all hell broke loose." The ensuing gunbattle in the Walmart parking lot with Jerry R. Kane, 45, of Forest, Ohio, and his 16-year-old son, Joe Kane,...

    THE scientist at the centre of the “climategate” email scandal has revealed that he was so traumatised by the global backlash against him that he contemplated suicide. Professor Phil Jones said in an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times that he had thought about killing himself “several times”. He acknowledged similarities to Dr David Kelly, the scientist who committed suicide after being exposed as the source for a BBC report that alleged the government had “sexed up” evidence to justify the invasion of Iraq. In emails that were hacked into and seized upon by global-warming sceptics before the Copenhagen climate...

    The David Boze Show ^ | 01/04/2009 | David Boze
    Thirty six minutes into this link to the recording of the 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. segment of The David Boze Show you will find the My Ding-a-ling Terrorist song. My wife and I were listening on the radio as we drove home yesterday afternoon and thought it was very funny Unfortunately, because it is near the end of the segment you basically have to download the entire 18 megabyte file to listen to the two minute song. For me the song is worth the trouble. The alternative is to go to http://www.davidboze.com/ and choose to stream yesterdays show but you...

  • Comcast forced subsribers to watch trashing of Rep. Wilson this afternoon in Western Washington

    This afternoon our Comcast digital cable box switched to C-span by itself while Democrats were trashing Rep. Wilson. The box would not allow us to watch any other station for approximately 15 minutes. When I called to complain Comcast technical support said that they were performing a "test of the emergency broadcast system" that switched all digital boxes in Western Washington to C-span and would not allow subscribers to watch anything else. They said that the programming taking place on C-span was merely a coincidence.
  • Electing Kerry means a return to the draft.

    Hi all, please send the following or something similar to your local newspaper editor: The thought of Kerry as commander and chief is so repulsive to most military personnel that a majority say they will not re-enlist if he is elected. Take a poll on that! Our enemies perceive Kerry as weak. Our country is much more likely to be forced into military conflicts if he is our next president. More demands on our military combined with low re-enlistments means one thing. The draft! It is ironic that if these young protestors get what they want in this election, that...

    Fox News | 08/27/04
    Fox News has repeated a story several times today about more inconsistent stories from Kerry in the Congressional Record. He said that his Swift boat was blown two feet out of the water by a mine. On a seperate occcasion he said a green beret (Rasmussen I would guess) was attempting to fetch a weapon when he fell overboard because the boat made a sharp turn starboard. The boat turned but the the green beret kept going straight and landed in the water. I wonder if Kerry didn't fall over and bruise his arm during the same maneuver? I have...
