Sherwood Recall Effort Advances Sloppily

Anna Lee, the chairperson of the "Recall Councilman Gary Sherwood Committee" (RCGS), submitted completed petition sheets to the Glendale City Clerk on Friday, December 19. She was presented with a receipt. Kill The Casino The stated purpose of the Sherwood recall is because of accusations of purported open meeting law shenanigans and other things, summarized by the final line of the petition summary: Mr. Sherwood has disdain for Glendale residents and does not comport himself in a manner befitting an elected member of the City Council. As noted in prior posts, the Gila River Indian Community (GRIC) is the sole financial supporter of RCGS. GRIC is within their rights to maximize their efforts to quash the Tohono O'odham (TO) West Valley Resort casino. To that end, they are spending hundreds of thousands locally and even more in Washington, DC backing all attempts, no matter how harebrained or poorly run. Perhaps related, the GRIC Governor Mendoza was recently voted … [Read More...]

Sung to the tune of Denis Leary's "I'm An Asshole"

Note to Larry Brooks: Get Bent

On Saturday, December 6, Larry Brooks (@NYP_Brooksie) posted an opinion piece on the NY Post website, a noted bastion of journalistic ethics and snappy headlines. In it, the hockey business Sergeant Schultz of the tri-state area encourages the NJ Devils to throw their season to be in the hunt for a draft pick. He also has something to say about the Arizona Coyotes. The Entire Thing Rather than post a link to the Brooks piece, thus encouraging his click farming tactics, here's the pertinent information in it's entirety: Remember how a few short weeks ago Andrew Barroway was on the verge of gaining majority control of the Coyotes, the news first reported by The Post? Not so fast, for … [Read More...]

PLEASE Get Your Flu Shot

Recently posted to Facebook is an article  “John Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccine”.  I want to point out that there are many news outlets that are only in the business of getting people to click on their page for the ad counters, and therefore they receive some sort of financial benefit. Before I get into the meat and potatoes of what I want to say I want this fact to be known; Influenza and it's complications account for up to 40,000 deaths annually in the United States.  That figure works out to 109.5 people every day if extrapolated out over a year. Also to be noted is that the article being cited in the webpage that was linked on Facebook, is based on a … [Read More...]

Oracle lost their case, but Google learned a lesson and started building … [Read More...]
