THE OBITUARY FOR PRES WINTERS

—Memorial service scheduled for this coming Saturday—


On Monday, May 11, 2015, Preston Winters passed away in his residence in San Jose, CA, with his wife Jan by his side. He died after a long bout with cancer. He was 65.

Pres was born December 1, 1949, and lived most of his childhood locally in Willow Glen. He graduated from Willow Glen High School in 1968, and went on to attend the University of Washington. He was a member of the Washington Huskies’ 1969 national champion rowing team, and he graduated from Washington with a degree in political science in 1972.

Pres returned home to the Bay Area and, in 1973, hired on as an Officer with the San Jose Police Department. He rose to the rank of Lieutenant and retired after a 30-year career with SJPD, in 2003.

Shortly before graduating from college, Pres became a Christian. He remained a committed Christian throughout his life. He met his future wife, Jan, in 1974, and led her to Christ. They married in June, 1975. In 1976, they settled in the Almaden Valley, where they remained until his passing.

Pres is survived by his wife of 39 years, Jan Winters; his son, Ryan Winters (fiancee Marishka); his daughter, Shawna (Winters) Whitfield (husband Miles); and his two grandchildren, Zach and Natalie.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 11:00 am at Calvary Church in Los Gatos. Donations in his memory may be made to CityTeam or Calvary Church’s “Go Team” ministry.

THE TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS OF SAN JOSE AND THE SJPD
 

As we understand this, CSOs will pass out cards with a bar code on the back to citizens they provide a service for that asks them to rate the CSO on how well he or she performed. Question: Will the City be providing its citizens with Bar Code Readers?

Police Service Officers Go Tech To Get Feedback

—Residents can use bar codes on back of business cards—

By Katie Nelson <knelson@mercurynews.com>
Mercury News — May 22, 2015

SAN JOSE — Less than a year after the inaugural class of community service officers joined the San Jose Police Department, efforts are underway to see how they’re doing and how they can improve. Ramping up their use of social media, the department has put a QR code on the back of every officer’s business card that leads residents to a survey where they can give feedback on their SJPD experience with the officers, who respond to non-emergency situations.

San Jose’s CSOs attend their daily briefing before going in the field.

The survey is just eight questions long, said Sgt. Skip Harsany, who said it’s a way to help the department make sure there is “customer satisfaction.”

The survey has five options for residents to choose from when they rate their experience with a CSO, including whether the officer seemed knowledgeable and well-trained and if the officer was “polite, patient and helpful.”

“We’ve never had CSOs in the past,” Harsany said. “This is part of the customer service. It is the perfect time to implement (the survey). ”

The community service officers were hired to relieve some of the burden from the understaffed and overworked patrol officers.

The survey does not need to be done on the spot, but the more people who can participate, the better the department will understand what is being done right and what processes could use some refinement.

The 28 CSOs currently on duty will be joined by more peers in the coming months. The department said they received several hundred applications for an additional 22 spots; the goal is to have 50 community service officers by next April. CSOs are not armed with lethal weapons, though they do carry pepper spray. They are not allowed to issue parking citations or arrest people. Their salaries range from $54,000 per person to just over $72,000 annually.

While the CSOs do not respond to “hot calls” — an incident where the suspect is still on scene or that is considered a major crime — they are helping to ameliorate service calls for things like home break-ins, vandalism and vehicle thefts.

In fact, with the first class of CSOs months away from completing their first year with the department, their efforts have been exceptionally helpful, officials say.

As the department’s size continues to shrink, the CSOs free up officers who are often needed for more serious crimes in other parts of the city.

Those of you who live (and vote) in San Jose might want to digest Scott Herhold’s column from Tuesday. The results of next month’s election will impact the City Council and which of the two candidates for District 4 is supportive of SJPD pensions.

Sorting the Chaff in S.J.



By Scott Herhold

Mercury News — May 26, 2015

In San Jose’s District 4 council race, a long slog that will finally be decided next month, the backers of the two candidates, Manh Nguyen and Tim Orozco, are engaged in a sustained bout of mutual bloodletting. Politically, there are real differences between the two men. As a Vietnamese media executive, Nguyen stands closer to business, supporting the city’s efforts to reel back the cost of pensions. Orozco, the first-place finisher in the primary, is vigorously supported by labor. If you’ve been following the recent news, however, the salient issues are Nguyen’s place of residence and 2009 bankruptcy, as well as Orozco’s arrests for drunken driving a generation ago. If you seek an elective job, your life is pretty much an open book. Few mistakes can claim a right to be forgotten.

Yet the District 4 race raises the troubling question of what should matter to us as voters.

The issue is particularly tough in the case of Orozco, a 56-year-old who works part-time in the legislative offices of State Sen. Bob Wieckowski. Orozco acknowledged to San Jose Inside last week that he had been arrested twice for drunken driving — once 30 years ago and another time 17 years ago.

In the old days of monopoly journalism, a newspaper almost certainly would have shrugged at that information: The DUIs would be seen as stale news. But in a hypercompetitive race with many online sources of information, no wart goes unnoticed.

For Nguyen, 62, the warts have been more recent and arguably more relevant: In the recession, his company filed for bankruptcy. Separated from his wife, the candidate has acknowledged renting an apartment in District 4 since November. Some critics see that as an attempt to resolve questions about where he lives.

Redemption

Here’s the problem: As a society, we give at least lip service to the notion of redemption. And both men have many other things on their resumes than blemishes. Orozco is a former St. Victor’s Catholic Church youth minister and North Valley Youth Soccer League coach.

He’s been a member of the Berryessa Citizens Advisory Council and the Berryessa Business Association. As a legislative aide, he knows his way around politics. “Nearly two decades ago, I demonstrated a young man’s poor judgment, which I regret and accept total responsibility for,” he said in a prepared statement. Nguyen, meanwhile, created a media empire after fleeing Vietnam 40 years ago.

After graduating from Lincoln Law School and clerking for an administrative law judge in Washington, D.C., he returned to San Jose and started a Vietnamese cable program.

“I wish we would be taking care of the needs of the people, rather than focusing on personal matters,” he told me.

You can read the comments of the candidates as self-serving, of course. And yet things like this call on our common sense to sort out the chaff of a campaign. “We can’t leave it up to Google to determine whether we should consider those things when we choose people for office,” says Irina Raicu, the Internet ethics program director of the Markkula Center at Santa Clara University.

Few of us can claim to have led blameless lives. And I don’t believe in political pacifism.

But culling the past for transgressions hurts our chances of finding the best candidates.

 

MAIL CALL



May 21st

Bill,
 
I received this from a friend who is a military veteran (Air Force in Vietnam) and has been a long-time friend of the police. In fact, he used to teach in the POST Management School before his retirement about 2 years ago.

Guy
(Bernardo) <guybernardo@comcast.net>

I have a prayer request. There's a lady I've known forever. She's
very sick. On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom
she has given everything. Lies about her abound and seem to come
from all sides. Just breaks my heart. Seems there's nothing I can do
alone. But maybe if we join in and lift her up to God, together we
can heal her. She's well over 200 years old, but way too young to die.
Her name is America — and I love her.

Please keep this circulating.

I’m sure that most of the readers share the sentiments of that prayer, Guy.

If you get short on material for the Farsider, here is a photo of my wife and I and Jim Anderson and his wife at Hobe Sound in Florida on May 17th. Pat and I met with Jim and Sandy and hashed over the good times in San Jose as well as their travels around the world. Great time. They are great people.

Cheers,

May 21st

Bill,

I'm referring to the article in the latest Farsider about the Militarization of the Police


(Ed. — See “Have An Opinion About This Move By The Prez? Share It With The Rest Of Us If You Do” in LAST WEEK’S Farsider.)

First: Any gift of anything from the Federal Government always comes with a hook. It's called control. Any Police agency that accepts free stuff from the Feds soon discovers that it isn't all that free.

Second: As you know from my previous rants on the subject, the Police need what it needs when it needs it. The most recent murder of Officer Johnson is a case in point. SJPD was in need of an armored vehicle to retrieve his body from the scene of the shooting, but the MRAP that had been gifted by the Feds was returned because a majority of two citizens thought it was awful. Instead, SJPD — serving a population of one million citizens — had to borrow a Bearcat vehicle from Sunnyvale DPS with a population of about 150,000.

SJPD is now so politicized that a burp in a crowd of thousands demands an immediate policy change. No armored vehicles. No drones, even though the device that is sitting in a cave somewhere because it was deemed a threat to privacy could have shortened the search for Officer Johnson’s killer by many hours. Where does this political correctness stop?  

Years ago, when I was the terror of the courtroom, I had a case in which a group called Citizens against something or other had sued the POA. During the trial, the President of this August group was being cross examined by me.  In a few moments it became clear that the group Citizen against something or other consisted only of a letterhead, the President and his drinking buddy. Needless to say, they lost their case when the witness couldn't articulate the beliefs of the group. He was just against it. That seems to be the case in much of the citizen uprising, so to speak, today. I am waiting for someone, anyone, to ask questions of these spontaneous citizen groups. Who are they? How is their privacy invaded? Why are they terrified because the Police utilize armored vehicles to protect themselves and rescue injured officers and citizens? I think — and I may be wrong — that a meeting with the group could be held in the back seat of my car. Don't expect answers because there aren't any from these folks.

The model for much of this is Ferguson, Missouri. Most of the Ferguson story has been proven to be fiction that was created and whipped up by the likes of Al Sharpton, the criminal tax evader. That fiction is still being used to heat up the pot. Now stories are coming out that rioters in Ferguson were paid for their services just as the Occupy participants in Oakland were reputed to be. Can you imagine why the conductors of such events want to disarm the Police?

Let's invite a vote of the electorate on these issues of invasion of privacy and militarization of the Police. I could live with the results. I'll bet that the majority of citizens want the Police to have every protective device that money could buy.

As for privacy. Are you kidding me? Banks of data exist on every one of us. Not Government, but business. What you eat. What you buy. What you wear. Where you work, bank, go to church, everything. What privacy is there left to invade? I'd like an answer to that from the group of two.

Phil expressed his opinion on another topical issue below. For you newer retirees, the retired lieutenant and former POA President graduated from the Santa Clara School of Law in 1976 and practiced from Dec. of that year through April 1991 until health issues forced him into inactive status. He continues to be a member of the California Bar and can request that his status be changed back to active should he wish to again represent clients. During the years he practiced he represented law enforcement personnel from throughout Northern California as well as local, county and state police associations.

 

May 22nd

Bill,

A late story on NBC details criticism of the agreement between the POA and the City regarding the use of Police Body Cameras. The story quotes Judge LaDoris Cordell as being dissatisfied with the terms of the agreement. She wants it rewritten to her liking and be submitted to her for approval.
(Ed. — See the Mercury News article in the POA Update column above.)


But, the agreement as signed by the parties is between the POA and the City, not between the POA and Judge Cordell. That agreement is required by State law under the Milias-Myers-Brown Act of 1967. That Act requires that public safety employees and employers "Meet and Confer" on matters of wages, hours, benefits and working conditions. Certainly the wearing of body cameras by Officers is clearly a working condition, and therefore subject to coverage under the act. The agreement developed by the parties once completed is reduced to writing and is signed by the parties, and at that point becomes a Memorandum of Understanding subject to enforcement by both parties.  

Now comes the Office of the Independent Auditor demanding to be included in the writing of the terms and conditions of the agreement. COP Esquivel seems to agree that she have input and authority to alter the already consummated "Memorandum of Understanding.”

I believe the Independent Auditor has no authority to involve herself in the writing of the agreement. She should know that the parties to the agreement are the City Council, upon ratification, and the POA membership, again on ratification. I'm sure City management is painfully aware of the provisions of MMB having been on the losing end of enforcement by the POA on the pension issues for refusal to Meet and Confer.

This presents an interesting legal issue. Can, will the City authorize the Auditor to represent the City Council on this issue? I'll bet no. Can the COP alter the agreement to satisfy the concerns of the Auditor. My view is no! The Chief is not a party to the agreement. His role now is to implement the terms and conditions of the pact.  

I think the Auditor is a day late and a dollar short. Should the City fathers bow to her concerns and alter one word of the agreement, then the entire body camera issue will come to a rapid halt, and in its place will come another demand by the POA to Meet and Confer — or it certainly ought to be. Failing that because of City refusal will throw the whole issue of body cameras into limbo for the foreseeable future. I can't see the City allowing that to happen just to satisfy the Auditor's concerns.

Stay tuned.

Phil

Bill and Leroy,

Now and then I call my wife to my side to see some of the videos in the Farsider. She comes over and watches what I want to show her seated by my side. Today after her short visit she said, "If those guys stopped the Farsider you would really miss your Thursday read.” She is so right, I would really miss the Farsider. Keep up the work. You guys are needed.

If I didn’t know better, I would swear that Egypt has its own version of Fox News. Since I don’t speak Egyptian I can’t verify that the subtitles are a true translation of what’s being said, but it sure looks like it. Watch the attached video of these three guys criticizing Obama for his recent speech where he said that climate change is the greatest security threat to the country.

I’ll go ahead and run the clip, TP, but you should know that it’s a spoof. The video was submitted by someone who identifies himself as "iPhoneConservative." If you go to the YouTube Comments Section and scroll down you will find  that the comment below was posted by the same individual:

WE DIDN’T DO THE “GREEN THING” BACK IN THE OLD DAYS


Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment.

The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."

The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

The older lady acknowledged that she was right — our generation didn't have the "green thing" in its day. She went on to explain: Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.

But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.

Too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.

We walked up stairs because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.

But the clerk is right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.

Back then we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Back then we had one TV and maybe a radio in the house — not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the"green thing." We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites hundreds of miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

Isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?

We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off, especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smart-ass kid who can't make change without the cash register telling them how much.

Feel free to forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation.


 

THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES

May 20-21

May 20: I'm your host, Jimmy Fallon, and I want to thank you for watching this on your DVR after you watched Letterman.

This morning my dad called me up and said, "So, tonight's your last show, huh." And I said, "No, Dad, that's someone else."

President Obama broke a world record after he reached a million followers on Twitter in just five hours. The only guys not following Obama? His Secret Service agents. They lost track months ago.

Chrysler just announced that it plans to offer free college tuition to thousands of employees at dealerships across the country. Chrysler says it’s just a small way of making up for the PT Cruiser.

May 21: This week presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a new bill that would make four-year college tuition free. Which was great news, unless you were the student who was just walking out of your graduation.

Bernie Sanders made around $2,000 last year for two speeches and a TV appearance, compared to the $25 million the Clintons made. Making him the first person in history to run for president just because he really needs the money.

Alfonso Ribeiro will replace Tom Bergeron as the new host of “America's Funniest Home Videos.” It’s great news for all those fans who watch “America’s Funniest Home Videos” for the host.

Bruce Springsteen is selling his house in Beverly Hills for around $70 million. And for that much money, the house actually comes WITH Bruce Springsteen.

MAY 20: In about 34 minutes David Letterman is going to air his last episode. In 1993, I took over his iconic late-night show. I was a complete unknown with no experience performing on TV. I was totally unprepared for that enormous job. I don't think that could happen today. I don't think the government would allow it.

I was in way over my head, and with my hair that's saying something.

After four dreary months, out of the blue we got a message that David Letterman wanted to come on as a guest. Dave was the biggest thing on TV. He didn't go on other people's shows. It was like The Beatles asking Maury Povich if they could stop by and sing a couple of tunes.

I have no illusions anyone is watching me this evening. But if there happen to be a few of you out there, I'm going to let you know the exact moment when Dave's show is starting, and I'd like you to switch over. I may be talking to seven viewers at that time, but I really think you should do it.

May 21: By 2020 the minimum wage in Los Angeles is going to be raised to $15 an hour. This is great news for the members of my band.

First lady Michelle Obama has posted an exercise video of her beating up a punching bag. But don't worry, Vice President Biden is going to be OK.

President Obama, by the way, has set a Guinness World Record as the fastest person to get a million Twitter followers. Obama now has as many followers as the Republicans have presidential candidates.

Three Southwest Airlines baggage handlers are accused of smuggling drugs in luggage. The officials became suspicious when every single one of the Southwest bags made it to its destination.

May 20: I'll be honest with you. It's beginning to look like I'm not going to get "The Tonight Show."

Do you know what I'm going to do when I retire? I hope to become the new face of Scientology.

Earlier today, we got a call from Stephen Hawking. He's a genius, and after 6,028 shows he ran the numbers and he said it works out to about eight minutes of laughter.

When we started the show, there were mixed responses. Half of the people said, "That show doesn't have a chance." The other half said, "That show doesn't have a prayer."

Back when we started this show, the hottest program on television was "Keeping Up With the Gabors."

My good friend Paul Shaffer and I are going to continue in show business. Next month Paul and I will debut our new act at Caesar's Palace with our white tigers.

May 21: This week presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a new bill that would make four-year college tuition free. Which was great news, unless you were the student who was just walking out of your graduation.

Bernie Sanders made around $2,000 last year for two speeches and a TV appearance, compared to the $25 million the Clintons made. Making him the first person in history to run for president just because he really needs the money.

Bruce Springsteen is selling his house in Beverly Hills for around $70 million. And for that much money, the house actually comes WITH Bruce Springsteen.

May 21: The government released hundreds of documents seized from Osama bin Laden's compound. Among the items is a job application for al-Qaida. It's like a regular job application except it asks questions like, "Where do you see yourself exploding in the next five years?"

I'd like to see a job interview for al-Qaida: "I see you spent eight years hating the great devil of the West. Can you tell me more?"

To join al-Qaida, you must be willing to die in the name of Allah and be proficient at Microsoft XL.

This is a real question on the al-Qaida job application: "Have you ever been in jail or prison?" Usually that is a bad thing but in this case I don't know.

How bad must it feel to not get the job with al-Qaida. "We don't feel you are right for the job at this time."

May 20: We are now 11 weeks away from the first Republican presidential debate. The debate will be held in a 300-seat theater, so there’ll be almost enough seats for all the candidates.

This week Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson got his handprints and footprints in cement outside Hollywood’s Chinese Theater. And this is the amazing part: The cement wasn’t even wet.

Former "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson posed naked in the shower for a campaign aimed at saving water in drought-stricken California. And as a bonus, it also reminded people to recycle plastic.

According to a new poll, one third of Americans believe animals deserve the same rights as people. The other two thirds have cats.

May 21: I was surprised to hear this. Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC has reportedly been struggling to raise money. It’s gotten so bad, they may have to start reaching out to Americans.

Chelsea Clinton has written a children's book titled “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going.” It’s a great book to read to your workaholic toddler.

Scientists working on The Syracuse University Lava Project have discovered how to grill a steak using lava. The hard part is getting the cow up on the volcano.

We found the reaction of one judge on China’s Got Talent almost as entertaining as Ma Yan Yan’s magical ballet performance. But the sixty-four dollar question is, where does Ma hide all the STUFF before it winds up on the floor of the stage? (4:55)

Best guess is that THIS Instant Justice clip took place in Romania and that the cop wasn’t overly concerned about being fired or sued by the woman, who may have been a gypsy. (0:31)

Here are a couple of very short baseball clips that initially had me WORRIED my eyesight may be going south. Can you follow the ball? (0:45)

Second up is this contribution from Marcia (Bruce’s wife) Morton. Can you find the guy who catches the foul ball without spilling a drop of his beer? I had to WATCH the repeating clip at the top of the web page a half-dozen times before I realized the catcher was the guy just to the right (our left) of the fan with the bat. At least I think it was him.

Our retired police artist who has impeccable taste in clothes and the latest styles thinks it’s time for us to apprise all of you of these dress code tips for seniors so you won’t be accused of making a faux pas next time you go out in public. The following are definite no-no’s unless you want to look like a dweeb.

• Pierced nipples that hang below the waist

• Bikinis and liver spots

• Short shorts and varicose veins

• In-line skates and a walker
       
And the ultimate 'Bad Taste' in fashion:

“Don’t stop, don’t stop,” says the Slow Loris. THIS little creature named Sonya is commonly found in parts of south Asia, such as India and the Philippines. (0:56)

This clip of a Slow Loris named KINAKO eating a rice ball has received over 9 million views. We have no idea why he or she is holding a fork so don't ask. The info under the video says she was born in a Japanese pet shop. (2:36)

Based on some of his Facebook postings, we were aware that retiree Bert Caro has a fondness for birds, but to receive this video from retired Motor Sgt. Bob Kosovilka was a huge surprise. It’s about the "Birds of Paradise" project by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Geographic. If you are into nature videos — especially those that feature THESE feathered critters that are distantly related to dinosaurs — you should check out this clip. (5:37)

God forbid I should wind up in a nursing home, but if I do, I hope I've got a furry little friend like Nala to visit me. Although it’s uncommon to see a pup riding an elevator by herself, seeing dogs in nursing homes isn't. Since 1976, dogs have been trained specifically for the purpose of acting as therapeutic companions in various institutions. Have a look at THIS clip. (2:45)

If you don’t think that karma works with dogs, watch THIS video that was posted two weeks ago by the Bank of Kiatnakin of Thailand. You don’t need to understand what’s being said to understand what happens. (2:30)

What would be worse than encountering a killer whale while you were paddle boarding just off Laguna Beach? Answer: Encountering three of them. They eat seals, so what you do NOT want to do is wear a dark wetsuit and fall off your board. (2:33)

A Love Story



Contributed by Lumpy

An elderly couple were having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table, took his wife's hand in his and said, "Martha, soon we will be married 50 years, and there's something I have to know. In all of these 50 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?"  

Martha replied, "Well Henry, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I've been unfaithful to you three times during these 50 years, but always for a good reason.  

Henry was obviously hurt by his wife's confession, but said, "I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by 'good reasons?'"  

Martha said, "The first time was shortly after we were married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn't pay the mortgage. Do you remember that one evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?"  

Henry recalled the visit to the banker and said, "I can forgive you for that. You saved our home, but what about the second time?"  

Martha asked, "And do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn't have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge."   

"I recall that," said Henry. "And you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that.  

Now tell me about the third time."

"Do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club, and you needed 73 more votes?”

Should America be the World’s Policeman? Or would humanity be better off if America wasn’t the dominant military superpower? Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and foreign affairs expert Bret Stephens discusses the issue in this video sent in by Lumpy. Trust us, it’s worth a look and listen, and maybe even a COMMENT from you for the Mail Call column if you are so inclined. (5:30)

Those of you who have an interest in WW II — specifically the War in the Pacific — will want to review these photos from the Denver Post, most of which have not been seen by the general public. They range from the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the surrender by the Japanese aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. Click HERE and give the site a few moments to load the 110 captioned photos.

 

March 16, 1945: A U.S. Marine approaches a Japanese soldier on Iwo Jima.
The Japanese soldier was buried for 1 1/2 days in this shell hole playing dead
and ready with a live grenade inches away from his hand. The Marines feared
he might be further booby trapped underneath his body after knocking the
grenade to the bottom of the shell hole. Promising no resistance, the prisoner
is given the cigarette he asked for and was dragged free from the hole.

Sorry, Marty McFly, but the new world record for the LONGEST flight by hoverboard belongs to Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru, who flew 275.9 meters over the waters of Quebec's Lake Ouareau. He more than quadrupled the previous record of 50 meters and has made many people on the Internet wonder if hoverboards are finally ready to make the jump from fantasy novels to reality. (1:32)

The Saluting Marine

Every Memorial Day weekend since 1988, Rolling Thunder/Ride for Freedom has been held in Washington, DC, to raise awareness of the Prisoners of War and Missing in Action of all wars.

United States Marine Corps Veteran Staff Sergeant Tim Chambers is known to the world as “The Saluting Marine” for standing at attention for hours in the middle of the street during Rolling Thunder. In the video below he held the salute for 3 hours while standing on concrete, surrounded by the bikers who zipped passed and around him. Despite having a broken wrist, Sgt. Chambers stood strong to perform his powerful act honoring veterans everywhere.

Sgt. Chambers stands with his makeshift memorial — boots, a rifle, flack jacket and Kevlar — displayed proudly at his feet. Over the years, families of fallen soldiers have donated personal items to symbolize their body and spirit.

The courageous feat is never lost on those who take part in Rolling Thunder. Many veterans stop on their bikes to salute Sgt. Chambers and thank him in return for upholding such a revered tradition.

Watch the video of Sgt. Chambers by clicking HERE. 

The Fox affiliate in Washington did an excellent job of covering The Saluting Marine a few years ago. If you felt the clip above was worth your time, THIS one will be equally so. (3:48)
