    Picked-up pieces while wondering whether “bomb cyclone” and “survive the ground” have ever been used in the same sentence . . . ■ For the record, Nancy Kerrigan has not seen “I, Tonya” and doesn’t care to discuss the cinematic softening of Tonya Harding. “I, Tonya” is a terrific film, perhaps Oscar-worthy, and Harding is on a redemption tour 24 years after her goons kneecapped Kerrigan before the Lillehammer Olympics. Tonya was a guest of honor at the recent Golden Globes and the subject of a TV special that aired on ABC Thursday night. Dollars to doughnuts she’ll be at...

    BATTLE GROUND, Wash. —Tonya Harding’s name isn’t Tonya Harding anymore. “My name is Tonya Price,” she said, when she saw me taking notes. In 2010, she had just returned home to Washington from Los Angeles,(snip) She was having drinks with a friend when she spotted one Joe Price, a heating and air-conditioning worker, on the karaoke stage. He was singing “Great Balls of Fire.” “I’m going, damn, he’s got beautiful eyes,” she said. “I mean the eyes are the center to your soul, O.K.? You might have a nice butt, but I want to see the eyes.” Within weeks she...
  • Cruz v Trump is Delegates v the Voter [vanity]

    03/15/2016 2:02:28 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 70 replies
    Yesterday, Hannity quoted the notorious Cruz accusation*, interviewed Senator Sessions, interviewed Newt Gingrich, and hotly debated Kasich over a potential convention challenge [the least exciting but most important part]. It was one of Hannity's all-time best radio programs. And it might be his most important one since the early days after 9-11-01. The most informative moment on his radio show was his run-in with Jamie Dupree about the specifics of delegates. It gave me a creepy feeling. Hannity mentioned how delegates are selected. Every state has its own system, and I'm left with the impression that not many delegates feel...

Harding's rep told "The Insider" that "Tonya feels very sad for Nancy and her family and extends her deepest sympathy and condolences to them." The spokesperson said "Tonya's beloved dad, Al Harding, passed away this past April, so she understands the grief Nancy and her family are feeling at this difficult time." Nancy Kerrigan, who has not spoken publicly since her brother was arrested and charged...

    The brother of former Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan is being charged with assaulting their 70-year-old father in Stoneham following a fight over a telephone where police say the younger man thought his dad was “faking it” when he fell to the ground. The father, Daniel Kerrigan, died from a massive heart attack, his wife tells the Herald. Mark Kerrigan, 45, now faces one count of assault and battery on a person over 60, according to Woburn District Court Clerk John Teeven. The criminal complaint lists Daniel Kerrigan of Stoneham as the assault victim, Teeven added. Mark Kerrigan is expected to...

    Knee whacker loses bid to clear record (Portland-AP) December 2, 2005 - He wants to join the Navy SEALs, but an episode from his past is standing in the way. It's that time he whacked Nancy Kerrigan in the knee. Shane Stant is the man convicted of carrying out that attack on the Olympic ice-skater in 1994 in a conspiracy that also involved skating rival Tonya Harding and her ex-husband. It took place as Harding sought the US figure-skating title and a spot on the 1994 Winter Olympics team. The SEALs won't take anyone with a felony conviction. So Stant...

    PORTLAND --New developments in the Tonya Harding ice skating scandal. Shane Stant, the man who hit Nancy Kerrigan in the knee, appeared in a Portland courtroom Thursday, trying to clear his record so he can become a Navy Seal. Stant doesn't have the name or face recognition as the other players in the infamous scandal do, but he is the one who attacked Kerrigan and when she heard he was trying to clear his name Thursday, she fought back. What started as a surprise attack on a star skater became one of the more memorable news stories of the 1990s....

    The disgraced former figure skating champion, Tonya Harding, has lost her first ever bout in the professional boxing ring. Harding, 32, made her professional debut against another novice, Samantha Browning, as a show-opener for the equally controversial Mike Tyson bout in Memphis on Saturday. "This was much, much harder than I ever figured. But it only makes me want to work that much harder," Harding said. Harding was twice US national figure skating champion, but fell from grace after being involved in an attack on her Olympic Games rival Nancy Kerrigan in 1994. She was subsequently banned for life from...
