No one knows why, but POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is declining to speak to his family after five years in captivity. If only his parents would decline to speak to the press it would be a lot better. Strange that p eople are shocked to hear that Bergdahl converted to Islam while in captivity. Yeah, duh. That’s pretty much standard in a hostage situation. Heck, I was behind a lady in the Hoover Publix, she took so long writing a check, I bought a tennis skirt and took sides on the school bus issue. Does Benedryl work for Stockholm Syndrome?
More Nigerian girls have been kidnapped by Boko Haram. But … but what about #BringBackOurGirls? Michelle Obama even Tweeted about it! Don’t these terrorists understand the importance of social media diplomacy?
No attacks have been reported, but some Alabama beaches are closed because of a swarm of sharks swimming just offshore. Science fact: You know what you call the mushy stuff between a shark’s teeth? Slow swimmers.
And a few things you need to know …
On this date in 1943, the ball point pen was invented. Bic deal.
On this date in 1977, Apple introduced the very first Apple 2 computer. They were originally going to giveaway a block of cheddar with every computer sold, but at that time, no one was that much into Mac and cheese.
Companies are starting to make hemp-laced medications for dogs. I could see the cat getting a hold of some and somehow, doing even less.
California Chrome owner Steve Coburn is being accused of bad sportsmanship for his post-Belmont Stakes rant in which he suggested that unfair rules cheated his horse out of winning the Triple Crown. Today, even Bowe Bergdahl accused Coburn of being "off-base."
Some schools in Britain are being ordered to teach "British values." I’m assuming they aren't dental schools.
And … Actor Rik Mayall is dead at 56. Absolute genius and I hope the cause of death isn’t something Carridine-level embarrassing. I have friends who, to this day, still indicate if the restroom is available by yelling "Neil, the bathroom's free! Unlike the country under the Thatcherite Junta!" RIP Lord Flasheart. WOOF!
