MCPHERSON, Kan. — A second former McPherson College football player is charged in the beating death of a football player from nearby Tabor College during an off-campus party in central Kansas, prosecutors confirmed Thursday.
This drew big headlines when the story first broke. The authorities kept a lid on information, however. Sometimes we simply do not know our own physical power.
My jury duty.
Um, well. On Monday I received notification the case was being pled – maybe. Wednesday I received notification to call the jury hotline on Thursday evening.
I called Friday morning.
That call notified me the case had been pled and I was to watch the mails for further instructions.
I wait the mail.
It isn’t that I seriously object to the way the system works, mostly because I cannot think of a different way to make it work, but I am amazed at the cost of just the notifications.
If one takes 10 percent of the population (say roughly 290 people) then that’s times 0.46 cents per letter times four letters so far; not counting the same number making at least two abortive long distance phone calls.
I do not think the ten bucks a day for a juror is needful either, to say little of the ”expenses” the juror is authorized if the case had gone to term.
Lets see! Yes. Well, concerning the newspaper crossword. Ten Across: Say l!@#$$ . A four letter word.
My comment: Now one must be able to do What? to work crosswords? That’s without speaking the crossword language, of course.
A muse from an Obituary:
“He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, 10 brothers and two sisters.”
I went plinking late yesterday. Burned up several tens of .22 ammunition putting holes in paper plates.
It had rained earlier and the day before. The top of the earthwork dam was muddy, slippery, and the entire project of target shooting ill advised, because I was muddy, slippery and stupid (er) when I finished.
I must have had suppressed tensions, however, because seeing large holes (as in tight groups) was satisfying.
It’s a shame the groupings can’t do laundry.
Having some experience under the heading: Leadership, I found the introduction to the following AD intriguing.
Help Wanted: FOREMAN to lead utility field crews. Outdoor physical work, many positions, paid training. $17/per hour. . .
there was more to the AD, of course. I was mostly intrigued with the image of a non-experienced foreman in the field with a crew of workers.
How would that work?
