An armored truck was driving in the westbound lanes near Ashford Dunwoody Road when a side door flew open, dumping its contents onto the interstate. Cash was all over the road, according to one driver who called into WSB Radio.
“I saw a bunch of paper floating around in the road and everybody pulling over on the shoulder, and as I got closer I noticed it was all just cash,” the driver reported.
Typically, a spill on an interstate would be cause for consternation and likely stop traffic for a few hours. This time, drivers stopped willingly. Video a passerby uploaded to Reddit showed at least a half-dozen cars stopped on the shoulder as drivers grabbed at the flying bills.
Holy shit, some people are assholes. Thank goodness these people won the legal battle to plant produce in their front yard. Jebus forbid!
Okra. Bell peppers. Cherry tomatoes. Jalapeños and squash.
Those are some of the vegetables that Hermine Ricketts and her husband, Tom Carroll, planted in front of their home in Miami Shores, Fla., on Monday.
That’s the day a Florida law went into effect that nullifies local bans on vegetable gardens at residential properties. It was one of those ordinances that had forced the couple to uproot a garden that Ricketts had tended for 17 years.
Ricketts had her vegetable garden in front of her home because that’s where the sun is, as NPR’s Greg Allen reported in 2013: “[H]er house faces south and her backyard is mostly in the shade. A retired architect, originally from Jamaica, Ricketts says she gardens for the food and for the peace it brings her.”
“This is a peach tree that I put in, and around it, I had kale, and in between the kales, I had some Chinese cabbage,” Ricketts said then. “And I also had Swiss chard, yellow Swiss chard.”
Taking a scene from the Shining and exchanging Jack Nicholson face with Jim Carrey’s is as simple as, well, this.
With all the audio manipulation technology out there now and capability to change faces, we’re going to see some election hoopla shenanigans go viral … now and forever more. 🤯😳😱
In response to a concerned mother about her child not getting the best level of education, the high school principal wrote:
“Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened,” he wrote, according to email records obtained by The Palm Beach Post through a public records request. “And you have your thoughts, but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs.”
He went on to say that as an educator he had “the role to be politically neutral but support all groups in the school.”
“I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee,” Latson wrote.
That response led the mother to launch a yearlong effort to address what she called a school leader’s failure to separate truth from myth regarding the genocide of an estimated 6 million Jews under Germany’s Nazi regime in the 1940s.
Principal regrets comments
She didn’t doubt that Latson knew the Holocaust was real, she said in an interview, but she feared his reluctance to say so stemmed from a desire to avoid confronting parents who deny the Holocaust’s reality.
I read somewhere that this principal wonders the same thing about whether slavery happened or not.
One question I have, is he religious (likelihood is probable) and if so, does he hold religion to the same level of scrutiny …
Questions. Always more questions.
