Captain Sullenberger's Water Landing: US Airways Flt 1549

We, I, so often scream about the mountains of crap that pile up in this world, not today. Today I have the honor not to scream, but to shout about the heroics of Capt. Chesley B 'Sully' Sullenberger III, Age 57, from Danville, California and his crew for the superior job that they did during the crash of US Airways Flight 1549. Capt. Sullenberger is a former Air Force fighter pilot and has been with US Airways 29 years.

Capt. Sullenberger's actions saved the lives of 155 passengers and crew. His actions are directly responsible for impacting thousands of lives - if not more.

Families, today, arose to a new day - together. Husbands kissed their wives, fathers and mothers hugged their children. Any and all that wanted, had the opportunity to talk about their ordeal. Many were on radio, some on TV, and I am certain, all talked with, prayed with, and rejoiced in the miracle on the Hudson with family and friends.

Video Game Defense is Defenseless: Game Over!

AP: A teenager kills his mother and wounds his father in revenge for taking away his video game.

I could start with "ARE YOU F'ING SERIOUS!" or a great big WTF, but that wouldn't do my astonishment, amazement and bewilderment any justice. So we'll start with this simple observation:

Some people are just bad.

Yes I know that we should look for the good in people, but when there's some scumbag, like this one, sharing our air and taking up space, I have to wonder if it's really worth my effort to find the good in all. Screw that, let him find the good. Flipping Pac-man murder freak--what kind of good should I find in that?

"Dude, like, you have really fast thumbs... and a quick temper too, probably makes you a good gamer huh?"

Why make the effort? Why exert my energy trying to find out why this waste-oid should be sharing this planet with the rest of us.

Daniel Petric is this "Game-over" shitballs name, he is 17, and is addicted to the Halo 3 game. His defense--playing the game made him insane.

Okay you slimey little f-stick, here's the deal. You are not addicted to video games. Your lazy, spoiled, and pathetic but you are not an addict. I know addicts and buddy they'd kick your ass for using the name addict in this fashion.

Fortunately the judge in this case rejected his defense, saying he had planned revenge for weeks. "game over", of Ohio, was tried as an adult and faces a maximum possible penalty of life in prison without parole.

And this is how this little spoiled brat did his dead: On the night of the shooting in October 2007, he used his father's key to open a lock-box and remove a 9mm handgun and the game. Twisted. His father was shot in the head and survived. Testified that his son came into the room and asked: "Would you guys close your eyes? I have a surprise for you."

Life is prison is too good for this slime.
