Following is a message we received from Reese Gwillim last Saturday, June 4th. It is the only information available about our fallen brother…

Hi Bill,

Wendell Rose's wife, Barb, gave me permission to contact you and to let you know that Wendell passed away peacefully this morning (Saturday, June 4th) following a long illness. She would prefer no phone calls at this time, and there will be no service.

I'm sorry, but there isn't much more to say. Any questions can be directed to me and I will ask Barb. She said if you want to let Wendell's friends know about his passing via the Farsider she would appreciate it. I apologize for the lack of information, but Wendell was a fairly private person and these were his wishes.

SJPOA NEWS



June 4th


Yesterday the POA set the record straight by countering critics who accused the San Jose Police Department of failing to act as violence broke out downtown after a political rally. At a press conference held at the POA with community leaders such as Ben Field from the South Bay Labor Council, the Rev. Jeff Moore of the NAACP, Steve Preminger from the Santa Clara County Democratic Party, and Max Zarzana from the Government Attorneys' Association we collectively condemned the violence and praised the police department for the way officers conducted themselves under very difficult situations.
 
The POA explained that in large cities around the country where these kind of protests have previously occurred police departments are able to deploy 2, 3 or 4 times as many officers as we do, allowing for multiple arrest teams and large skirmish lines. Despite deploying our entire department and calling for mutual aid, we don't come close to the resources other large city agencies have.
 
We also echoed the Chief's defense of San Jose police officers who did an outstanding job and reinforced his call to the public for assistance. At a press conference held at the Police department Chief Garcia called for citizens and members of the media to turn over video of crimes they captured to the police so we can attempt to locate and prosecute the offenders rather than just posting them online for the world to heckle at.

City Leaders Taking Heat

—Mayor, police chief rebuff criticism for failing to stop violence following rally—

By Julia Prodis Sulek <jsulek@bayareanewsgroup.com>
Mercury News — June 4, 2016


SAN JOSE — A day after a melee erupted outside a Donald Trump rally, the San Jose police chief and mayor on Friday defended themselves from a national backlash over their handling of the dramatic and at times violent protest.

On radio talk shows and across social media, some called for Mayor Sam Liccardo’s resignation because of his comments suggesting that Trump was to blame for igniting violence, while police were criticized for failing to protect Trump supporters from angry protesters throwing punches, water bottles and traffic cones. Some videos showed those attacks and suggested they were unprovoked, but others showed Trump supporters taunting protesters, ripping their Dump Trump signs and throwing the first punches.

While it appeared to many onlookers that police allowed the violence to proceed unchecked, San Jose police Chief Eddie Garcia insisted that it was more important for police to hold their “skirmish line” formations than to stop individual attacks. Four arrests were made.



Chief Garcia's Statement regarding Trump rally response

“We are not an ‘occupying force’ and cannot reflect the chaotic tactics of the protesters,” Garcia told reporters. Unless a victim’s life was in peril or the violence was “spiraling out of control,” he said, officers held back to avoid inciting more violence and having the crowd turn on officers. He also said the 250 police weren’t enough to control the roughly 400 protesters.


Liccardo praised the police restraint.

“I can say if there was a single excessive baton blow on anyone in that crowd,” Liccardo said Friday, “that would have made national news.”

San Jose — where Latinos make up a third of the population — became the focus of international attention anyway. Videos exploded on news stations and social media Thursday evening showing marauding protesters turning on Trump supporters.

Demonstrators ripped a “Build the Wall” T-shirt — a reference to Trump’s promise to build a wall along the border with Mexico — off the back of one man.

It was the largest violent political protest seen in San Jose in decades.

The violence was universally decried by pundits and politicians, including Trump’s presidential opponent Hillary Clinton, who said, “It’s deplorable no matter who’s doing it.” At a rally Friday in Berkeley, candidate Bernie Sanders called the violence “absolutely and totally unacceptable,” saying people considering violence “are not the supporters that I want.”

On Twitter, Trump offered a brief note about his stop: “Rally last night in San Jose was great. Tremendous love and enthusiasm in the hall. Big crowd. Outside, small group of thugs burned Am flag!”

By midday Friday, Liccardo — a Clinton supporter — was trending on Facebook after he said late Thursday that “at some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for his irresponsible behavior.” His comments ranked as the fourth most-talked about topic around the globe.



Violence Trump Supporter Egged by Protesters San Jose California Rally


Even some of Liccardo’s political allies took him to task, including former San Jose City Councilman Pete Constant, a Republican who often worked closely with Liccardo.

“San Jose Mayor blames residents going to a presidential campaign event for being attacked by those who oppose the candidate — another case of blaming the victim?” Constant posted on Facebook. “No matter what your political persuasion, you should not be subject to violence for your beliefs — EVER!”

In a phone interview Friday from Washington, D.C., where he traveled after the protest, Liccardo didn’t let Trump off the hook.

“I’m absolutely clear about the fact that people who commit acts of violence are responsible for their own actions,” Liccardo said, “but Mr. Trump is also responsible, as we all are, for our own speech.”

During the protest, police in riot gear maintained shoulder-to-shoulder lines, trying to separate protesters from Trump supporters. But they weren’t always at the right place at the right time, especially at the back of the convention hall shortly after Trump’s speech ended and the altercations began. Some Trump opponents appeared to attack supporters without provocation, while other supporters shouted “Mexicans go home!”

As the evening wore on, the long lines of police standing firm or marching down streets effectively dispersed the crowd that often taunted them and threw bottles and parking signs their way. One officer’s wrist was injured when a metal object hit him, the police chief said.



Trump supporters and protesters clash as San Jose rally turns violent


Garcia announced Friday that he has formed a task force to review video evidence and investigate the assaults and other crimes from the protest. He is also asking for people who were there to give police their videos “so we can root out those whose intentions were to disrupt our civil democratic process.”

It was unclear who was responsible for the violence, and the police chief said he didn’t know whether those arrested were local. A small group of protesters wore bandannas over their faces, a tactic also used by the so-called “anarchists” during the Occupy movement in Oakland. Many protesters interviewed at the scene Thursday night live in East San Jose and said that while they are staunch opponents of Trump, they feared the violence only fed into the criminal stereotype Trump promotes.

Across the country, as Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric has ramped up, protests have been building outside each of his rallies, including in Burlingame and San Diego.

In many ways, San Jose, with its history of Latino civic activism dating back to Cesar Chavez’s farmworker strikes, was ripe for Thursday’s protest.

“It’s sort of a sleeping Giant in many ways,” said Garrick Percival, associate professor of political science at San Jose State University. “It can be dormant, but if there are outside influences that stoke these strong feelings, I think that is really in line with a lot of activism that has happened in this city over the decades.”

Percival said he wouldn’t be surprised to see rising tensions overall and “we can expect more of that as the summer gets longer and hotter and the rhetoric gets ramped up by Trump and his supporters.”

Violence at Trump Rally Shames S.J.

Editorial
Mercury News — June 6, 2016


Protesters fell into Donald Trump’s trap Thursday. The attack on his supporters after the downtown rally was not one of San Jose’s finer moments. Violence has no place in American politics. Trump has known from Day One of entering this race that he can’t win a conventional campaign. If reason, political experience and thoughtful positions on issues determine the outcome, he has no chance.

Engage his ideas on their merit and — you come up empty. The GOP candidate wants the race to be a street fight. Insults, race-baiting, name-calling, cheap shots and low blows are his strategy to keep opponents off their game.

It’s working. On Thursday when Hillary Clinton unleashed her most aggressive attack yet on Trump’s positions, arguing that “we cannot let him roll the dice with America,” Trump again won the day by pushing news of her well-reasoned speech out of the headlines. We understand the anger and passion of protesters Thursday outside the San Jose Convention Center, in a city where Mexican heritage is something to celebrate and tolerance is a hallmark. We know violence is a human response to bullying, and Trump early on encouraged his own supporters to rough up protesters.

But what happened in San Jose actually elevates Trump, making him a victim and his opponents thugs out to silence free speech. We know not everyone outside the convention center was there for a fight — our reporters talked to many who felt strongly about Trump but wanted no part of the fighting — but the fights are what people see all over the Internet.

What happened put the area law enforcement team in a dangerous position. San Jose’s police, with support from other departments, struggled to keep the peace, made several arrests and hope to make more, as they and the district attorney review video to identify lawbreakers. Mayor Sam Liccardo paid dearly on social media for his early statement that seemed to excuse Trump opponents, but on Friday the former prosecutor made it clear that violence is never OK and criminals must be pursued.

The best political campaigns and, yes, protests elevate issues and inspire us to become better people and a better nation. The violence Thursday night lowers politics to the gutter and encourages more lawlessness. Bay Area residents like to think of themselves as trendsetters. Not this time, we hope.

Five months remain until the November election.

Trump says he believes California is in play.

“I’ve been told by all these brilliant guys you can’t win California. I think we can,” he said Thursday.

That means more visits by the GOP candidate are in our future. San Jose and the Bay Area need to step up their game and not stoop to the level of politics Donald Trump seeks.

Letters to the Mercury News

June 4th


I would like to congratulate Mayor Liccardo for putting San Jose in the national news alongside our beloved and amazing San Jose Sharks. The Sharks are making national news for San Jose because of a group of talented athletes who are trained, dedicated and allowed to do their job. Mayor Liccardo got us more national news by not allowing a group of police professionals who are trained and ready to do their jobs by not allowing them to provide safety to the citizens in San Jose who chose to attend a rally. And to punctuate his intentions, Mayor Liccardo stated that the injuries to the citizens were the responsibility of a presidential candidate. What a sad time for the police department and our city leadership.

Bill,

If you are going to print anything on the Trump rally disturbance, feel free to use my comments. I feel sorry for the officers on the street who have to work under such restrictions, a shortage of staff and lack of effective leadership. Where is Captain Bill Brown and the Crowd Control Team when you need them?

Harry
(Mullins) <hmullins08@yahoo.com>

I can’t speak for the Crowd Control Unit, Harry, but I would wager that Bill Brown isn’t just turning over in his grave, he is probably trying to shoot his way out and come to the rescue of the department he loved so much. Here are your comments…

My Observations on San Jose Trump Rally


It is sad to sit back and observe what has happened and is continuing to happen to SJPD. In the years I worked there we trained hard, worked hard and were lead, for the most part, by dedicated professionals who actually put the welfare of the officers first on their list of concerns.
 
From what I have seen, read and heard, former coworkers say SJPD is mired in PC management brought on by media hype, innuendo and anti-police attitudes. Policy decisions are made by political leaders who cannot even decide where to go to the bathroom with checking to make sure they will not offend some special interest group’s cultural norms.
 
Sadly, SJPD is not alone. In my humble experience of 46 years in public service, our large urban cities have become ungovernable. No one has the balls to stand up and tell protesters to disperse or go to jail. Even worse, many cities do not have the resources to back up such and order.

I have great admiration for those who work on the front lines in law enforcement these days, and I certainly understand the pressures that administrators are under, but I wish more would have the courage to publicly back their officers. It is oxymoronic that those who put their lives on the line to protect people’s right to be innocent until proven guilty are themselves guilty upon accusation.
 
I read the SJ article in the SJ Mercury-New on-line. Per the Chief:

• “It’s more important to hold a skirmish line formation than stop individual attacks.”

• ”We are not an occupying force.”

• ”Unless the victim’s life is in peril or the violence is spiraling out of control, officers are held back to avoid inciting more violence and having the crowd turn on the officers.”

• “250 police officers are not enough to control 400 protesters.”

The Chief is totally full of bullshit. The reason the attacks continued is because the police did nothing but stand on their skirmish line and the a-holes could see the police were going to do nothing. I guess the Chief never learned from the incident in Seattle where a person was killed by a mob while the police command just stood by and were afraid to move into the crowd.  

The Seattle line officers wanted to move into the crowd, but command officers would not let them. If the Chief is so afraid the crowd will turn on his officers, then maybe he should get them properly trained in crowd control, or not have any officers at the event in the first place. I’ll bet the officers would have been more than willing to deal with the mob then just stand on the skirmish line and watch.
 
If 250 officers cannot deal with a crowd of 400, they need to go home. Among the 400 it is likely there are only 25 or so who are really causing the trouble, and once you deal with about 10 of them, the rest will go away. Or at least keep their distance from the police and be more worried about what the police will do then attacking someone else.

San Jose needs a new Chief who is truly a police officer.

Hi Bill,

A week ago Bernie Sanders was here on the central coast at a couple of rallies. In Monterey he had somewhat of a reunion with one of the local news anchors. She was a junior reporter and covered Bernie when he ran for his first office as Mayor of the largest city in Vermont back in the day. He won that election by 10 votes. That's point one, and it's important to note that he won by only 10 votes.

Point 2: If you think the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton for the last five months will turn up nothing, you've got to be kidding yourself. Does anyone really think they are going to come up with a 500-page report that essentially says she's squeaky clean? Come on, give me a break! This FBI Director is a straight laced and, dare I say, very powerful man. No one is going to second guess his report. And the results are not going to be pretty for Hillary. Anyone in the military who did what she did would be subject to immediate court martial and given ten years. In essence, Clinton is not going to make it; federal charges will be flying all over the place. I can hear the uproar already. She and Bill are not going to get past this one. The most powerful person in Washington at this particular time in history is the Director of the FBI. Hillary will not get past thousands of hours of pure (not political) investigation, and she will be forced to leave.

Point 3: Trump can barely manage a beauty contest. How could he possibly handle being POTUS. The American people will finally come to their senses and, in the end — maybe the very end (cross your fingers) — Trump will implode as a result of too many negative traits. The list is too long to name them all here.

That leaves Sanders. It will be Bernie Sanders by 10 once again — 10% of the vote; 10 states; 10 votes; take your pick. Through all these months of slanderous talk, debate, finger pointing and just plain nonsense, Bernie will be the last man standing. Bernie by 10. Maybe I'm wrong, but right now, that's how I see it.

Be well,

Dave
(Scannell) <silent.eagle46@yahoo.com>

Looks like we are off to the races. Anyone else have an opinion of what’s going to happen? Who’s going to win? Anyone want to guess who the Vice Presidential pics will be? We’re all ears. Send your prognostication(s) to <bilmat@comcast.net> and we’ll include your guess here in the Mail Call column. Don't be shy. Speak up.

Bill:

I can no longer contain myself on the behavior of Donald Trump. His recent attack on a sitting judge assigned the Trump University fraud class action is appalling. It is obvious that he is exercising his talent for bombast and insult to divert media attention from covering the facts of the fraud case. Trump is aware and certainly his lawyers know there are statutory provisions that can be exercised by a party to any litigation to disqualify a judge. As far as I know, Trump's lawyers have not filed any action to disqualify the judge. Perhaps such a disqualification motion would be far too quiet for Trump. He loses his stage for the drivel he is now dishing out. If that man is elected President, I fear for the country. Clinton, of course, is not an alternative that I can live with either.

With a slate of two losers, where do we go?

Phil
(Norton) <ponorton2008@gmail.com>

Can’t answer your question, Phil. But I know there’s one place we probably cannot go, and that’s Canada. I have a contact in Vancouver who said they are starting to build a wall to keep Americans out regardless of who is elected president. And if we try to sneak into Mexico we'll get arrested and thrown in jail.

THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES


June 6 — 7

Monologues from reruns which were prevalent last week are not included.


June 6: Last night, the Golden State Warriors beat the Cavaliers by 33 points in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Yeah, 33 points! Even people switching over from "Game of Thrones" were like, "This is brutal!"

I saw that before tonight’s game, members of Metallica performed “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Yeah, hockey and Metallica — even Donald Trump was like, "That's too white."

Bernie Sanders campaigned in California yesterday ahead of the state's Democratic primary, and even checked out the famous carousel at the Santa Monica Pier. But it got a little awkward when the music stopped and Bernie still wouldn't admit that the ride was over. “This is gonna be a contested carousel!”

After weeks of hesitation, Paul Ryan finally endorsed Donald Trump for president on Thursday. When asked what influenced his decision, Ryan said, “Xanax. Lots and lots of Xanax.”

June 7: It's being reported that Hillary Clinton now has enough delegates to secure the Democratic nomination. Hillary was so excited when she found out she asked her staff to schedule 15 seconds of smiling.

Hillary told her assistant to break out the champagne. And he said, "Actually you drank it all when Trump secured his nomination. Do you remember that?"

Hillary had to reach the threshold of 2,383 delegates to become the presumptive nominee. Hillary hasn't been this excited about a threshold since the one she carried Bill over on their wedding night.

Paul Ryan said what Trump is saying about a judge of Mexican heritage is the "textbook definition" of a racist comment. Even worse, that textbook is made by Trump University.

Kylie Jenner recently posted a Snapchat video of herself giving two little boys $100 for just two cups of lemonade. Nobody has paid that much for lemonade since Jay Z.


June 6: A new poll found that Donald Trump’s recent outrageous comments might cost him the state of Florida. You know things are bad when a candidate is considered "too crazy for Florida."

Burger King has merged a Whopper with a burrito to make a Whopperito. So take note, Donald Trump: THAT’S how you Make America Great Again!

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said that he might run for president of the United States later on down the line. When they heard, the Republican Party asked him, "Can you start tomorrow?"

Tomorrow is the California primary. Analysts say it’s make or break for Bernie Sanders. Either Bernie wins and he keeps going or he loses and he keeps going.

Last week, a 90-year-old letter to Santa Claus was found in a chimney. On the bright side, the 96-year-old who wrote the letter is still alive and finally got that tricycle.

June 7: Today, presidential primaries are being held in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Or, as it’s being reported in the media, California.

House Speaker Paul Ryan described Donald Trump’s remarks about a Hispanic judge as a "textbook definition" of racism. When they heard this, Trump supporters said, "You lost us at 'textbook.'"

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said it would be great if Hillary Clinton picked a female running mate. She said it during a speech entitled "Hint Hint."

"Today Show" host Savannah Guthrie’s skipping the Olympics in Rio because she’s pregnant and worried about the Zika virus. In a related story, Bob Costas just announced he is pregnant.


June 7: It took the grandparents a long time to realize their mistake. During the car ride home, they even gave the kid a Happy Meal. Pretty good, if you're that kid. I bet he was like, "Uh, being kidnapped is not that bad!"

Police were investigating a crime scene in Vancouver, when a crow flew down, grabbed a knife in its beak, and flew away with a key piece of evidence. I've got to say, the marketing for this "Angry Birds" movie is getting out of control.

The story just sounds like a bad lie from a cop who really messed up. "Oh, the murder weapon? Yeah . . . a bird took it."


June 6: According to a new poll, a majority of Americans say they would not sleep with Donald Trump for $1 million. Well, of course, nobody sleeps with him for $1 million.

Donald Trump is continuing to draw criticism for his claims that Judge Gonzalo Curiel's Mexican heritage makes him unfit to preside over a lawsuit against Trump University, despite the fact that Curiel was born and raised in Indiana. And when Trump found that out, he said, "Oh, no, he's an Indian, too?"

Donald Trump is also attracting criticism after he singled out a black supporter at a rally on Friday and told the crowd, "Look at my African-American," which is clearly racist, but also, he should know his name by now.

While campaigning in California, ahead of tomorrow's primary, Bernie Sanders yesterday stopped at a Los Angeles bar popular among the LGBT community. Said Sanders, "No! I said I wanted a BLT! What's the 'G' for? It better not be guacamole because that costs an arm and a leg."

June 7: Hillary Clinton today responded to her status as the presumptive nominee, calling it a “historic, unprecedented moment.” Said Hillary, “Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would take this long.”

It is being reported that Ivanka Trump is writing a book titled “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success.” Which is better than the original title, “Help! My Dad’s a Nectarine!”

President Obama yesterday called the Denver Broncos one of the greatest defenses of all time. “Wow, thanks!” said the Army.


June 7: It looks like the general election will come down to Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump. Which is fitting, really, since she'll be the first female nominee of her party, and he'll be his party's last nominee.

The Clinton folks aren't happy about the media jumping the gun on her clinching it. She wanted to announce that at her victory rally tonight, so when she does announce, everyone please act like you didn't see this coming.


AN UNTOLD STORY ABOUT MUHAMMAD ALI


My brother-in-law, Tom Kalinske, is the other uncle to Dave Kalinske, the retired Marine Corps Lt. Col. and F/A-18 pilot I have written about in the past.

Tom began his business career with the J. Walter Thompson advertising firm in the Big Apple. From there he became the CEO of Mattel, then CEO of Universal Matchbox, then CEO of Sega of America, followed by CEO of Leapfrog. Today he is the Executive Chairman of Global Education Learning, a company dedicated to children’s education in China. His bio is covered in THIS Wikipedia entry.


Tom sent the following story about Muhammad Ali to his many family members earlier this week…

~ ~ ~


Early in my career I got to know Muhammad Ali when I was in advertising at JWT (J. Walter Thompson) in NYC. We were doing a commercial for Mennen Skin Bracer, where Muhammad gets slapped with Skin Bracer and says "Thanks I needed that.” When we finished and I handed him a check for $25k, he said, "I’m leaving for the Bahamas tonight and I was supposed to be paid in cash.” We rushed to our bank, Irving Trust, at the corner of 57th & Park. It’s 3:05 and the bank just closed (this was 1970). I knock on the window, pointing at the champ. A VP opens the door. We explain the need for cash. He gladly pays Muhammad in $100 bills, whereupon the champ palms one of the bills. When he counts them back to the banker it is naturally 1 short. He scowls at the banker, grabs him by the tie and pulling him toward an upraised huge fist while saying "You trying to cheat me white boy?" The banker pees his pants, quickly opens the teller drawer and starts to give him another $100 bill. The champ then produces the bill that he palmed and we all had a good laugh.

Years later as the CEO of SEGA I had Ali do close up magic for retail buyers and used him in commercials. The attached photo is from the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in 1994, after Parkinson's had set in. I reminded him of the bank teller incident and he replied, "I was a bad boy.”

He was the greatest! He performed wonderful magic, played the piano well and loved people, especially children. I know I will miss him.



Tom and Mohammad Ali at the Consumer Electronics Show in 1994, and the
autographed gloves the Champ gave Tom that show how huge Ali's hands were.

Many of you with an interest in aviation have likely seen the footage of the crash of Air France Flight 296. It was a brand new fly-by-wire Airbus A320 that was part of an air show in 1988. In front of stunned onlookers it crashed in a forest while attempting a low speed pass. A detailed video REPORT of the crash beyond just the video was posted to YouTube last month. Incredibility, all but three people survived the crash, including the flight crew, all of whom were criminally charged. (7:18)

It’s not my intention to pick on the flight attendant who addressed the passengers on SW Flight 345 after it crash landed at LaGuardia Airport in New York. But with the starboard engine sitting on the ground, you have to wonder why she told the passengers to “stay seated, we are NOT at the gate.”

If you believe that at some point in time — perhaps 10,000 years from now — time travel may be a reality — then you must accept the possibility that people from the year 12016 might be able to return to 2016. And taking that to its logical conclusion, some time travelers from that year could be among us today. This does, of course, require that mankind will still exist in the year 12016, which is highly doubtful with the way things are today. Nevertheless, let your mind float free for a few minutes and watch THIS video. You may find it is both interesting and entertaining. (7:30)

There is likely some degree of truth to this item received from FBI retiree Tom McFall…


Two guys grow up together. After college, one moves to New York, the other to California. They agree to meet in Chicago every ten years to play golf. After  they finish their round at age 30 they decide to have lunch.
 
“Where you wanna go?”
“Hooters.”
“Why?”
“Well, you know, they got the young chicks with the cleavage and the tight shorts.”
“OK.”
 
Ten years later at age 40 they meet and finish another round of golf.
“Where you wanna go?”
“Hooters.”
“Why?”
“Well, you know, they got cold beer and the big screen TVs and everybody has a little action on the games.”
“OK.”
 
Ten years later at age 50
“Where you wanna go?”
“Hooters.”
“Why?”
“The food is good and there is plenty of parking.”
”OK.”
 
At 60
“Where you wanna go?”
“Hooters.”
“Why?”
“Wings are half price.”
“OK”
 
At 70
“Where you wanna go?”
“Hooters.”
“Why?”
“They have 6 handicapped spaces right by the door.”
“OK.”
 
At 80
“Where you wanna go?”
“Hooters.”
“Why?”
“We’ve never been there before.”

Here is this week’s installment of “People Behaving Badly” with Stanley Roberts, whose series is featured on KRON 4. THIS week the CHP cracks down on people who try to avoid bridge fees, which is referred to as “Riding Dirty.” (2:21)

You may recall that a guy was busted last year for selling heroin on what was called the “Deep Web.” How it is accessed we have no idea, nor do we want to know. A reader sent us THIS YouTube clip that was posted earlier this week. It describes what is available for purchase on the Deep Web other than hard drugs. Looking for a hitman who can make the murder look like a suicide? How about some nuclear material for a dirty bomb? (5:16)

Rest in peace, Captain Kuss…

The tragedy of the Navy Blue Angel’s fatal crash last week seemed to be overshadowed by the wall-to-wall coverage of Muhammad Ali’s death, but that’s another story. After reviewing several news clips of the tragedy, two stood out as having more thorough coverage than the others.

An Air Force F-16 Thunderbird pilot successfully ejected when his plane crashed an hour before the Blue Angels' F/A-18 Hornet went down. Some have wondered how the F-16 could have remained mostly in one piece following the crash. THIS is a brief overview of that incident.


As unusual as it was that the F-16 was mostly intact after the crash, it’s not as remarkable as the 1970 incident of an F-106 that went into an uncontrollable spin. After the pilot ejected at about 8,000 feet, the delta wing fighter went straight down, then leveled out and landed by itself completely intact in a snow covered cornfield. HERE is a brief story about that incident as narrated by the pilot of the F-106. (3:19)
