5 ordered to stand trial in Salina teen’s shooting death

Pity, really. It was a matter of mis-taken identity

.The Pope is wasting his time, right now, addressing the Congress. The TV is steady on the chamber podium. The carpet in that place needs cleaning badly – well, the carpet need a good cleaning, badly.

I know there has to be a way around the awkwardness of that phrase.

I wonder if it has ever occurred to any of the people involved in all of this; the security costs, the plane costs, the wealth of the religion, the rest of it, if added up and re-distributed to the “poor” would go a long, long way to elevating the hunger they tend to point fingers toward and blame the have’s.

I’m sure it has been pointed out that the other hand, the one not pointing toward the huddled masses, is held out palm up soliciting funds to “help support the church”. Of course, supporting the church comes first, charity comes, as in all charitable endeavors, first after the life of the charity itself. Oh. And me,  The representative.


Well. Maybe not. The Pope is speaking to people that already know how to  fish. Asking them to give fish to those that do not, know how to fish.


From the reaches,

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
