Day 40

It has been 40 days now since our colleague from the Sandhills has posted. I can do no better than QUOTE HIS OWN WORDS DIRECTED AT ME:

“Imwithfred
Day 40
It's now been forty days since a once-prominent member here's said anything.

One wonders why the silence.

But just as Christ spent forty days in the desert in solitude and prayer and fasting, perhaps our missing colleague has been similarly spending his forty days wisely, wearing sackcloth and ashes and contemplating upon what a jerk, he'd been.

Or at least one hopes so. “

Bosnia ordered to remove church from Srebrenica survivor's land

SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnian authorities were ordered on Tuesday to remove from a Muslim Bosniak woman's courtyard an Orthodox church which was built after she was driven out by Bosnian Serb forces who killed 22 of her relatives in nearby Srebrenica.

The final and binding ruling by the European Court of Human Rights should end a 20-year legal battle by Fata Orlovic and members of her family who escaped the 1995 Srebrenica massacre and returned to their village in the Serb-dominated region of Bosnia to find the large church 30 meters from their front door.

The court found the Bosnian Serb authorities' failure to comply with the binding decisions of 1999 and 2001 ordering full repossession of the land had seriously harmed the Orlovics's property rights.

In 1993, Serbs drove all Muslims from Konjevic Polje to Srebrenica, a U.N. safe area which they overran two years later, killing about 8,000 Muslims in what is seen as Europe's worst atrocity since World War Two. Two international courts declared the massacre as genocide.

Mitt Romney receives standing ovation in Denver for impeachment vote

Three weeks after becoming the first U.S. senator in history to vote to convict a president of his own party, Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah stopped in Denver on Friday night to discuss the state of democracies around the world.

Romney was joined by Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former prime minister of Denmark, for a conversation at the University of Denver’s School of International Studies. The event was hosted by the Alliance of Democracies Foundation, a non-profit founded by Rasmussen to advance democracies and free markets.

“I am so honored to be on stage with what I would say is a true profile in courage,” Rasmussen said of Romney during his opening remarks, prompting a standing ovation from the crowd of about 300 people in a packed university auditorium.

“There are a couple of times I have said things or taken positions that were more expedient than they were based upon conviction. I remember those things precisely and I regret them enormously,” Romney said. “And I said, ‘I’m not doing that again.’ I’ve reached a point in my life where I look back and I say of all the things I’ve done in my life, I think those couple of things really stand out and they really bother me. Years, decades later, and I’m not going to do that anymore.”

If you're planning on a murder, use spellcheck

NOTE for the inevitable jury: This post is humourous and in no way condones or suggests murder.

I am a fan of these true crime dramas that they show on ID and on True Crime Daily on YouTube. I was watching one of the latter this morning and it was one I had seen done by another show, but with one detail added in the current version. It concerned a man near St. Louis who was a bodyguard for a female televangelist and who strangled his two kids and his wife. He did so because of another woman (not the televangelist) who was actually pretty hot (definitely not the televangelist).

As part of his brilliant scheme he wrote death threats aimed at him and his family (on his own computer, duh) that were supposed to be from an individual who was upset with the preaching of the televangelist. When he killed his family, he spray painted quotes from the threats all over his walls to make it appear that this unknown individual had done the crime.

One of the ways they figured him out was through the death threats. Whoever was threatening him could not spell "opportunity" but spelt it as "oppurtunity." The police checked some of the husband's own writing and found he misspelt it the same way. This was certainly not the only clue -- the guy had videos of his girlfriend naked all over his computer while denying he was sexually involved with her. But it didn't help him.

There was a similar case of a woman who had poisoned her husband with antifreeze. When the police were closing in on her, she attempted to poison her daughter faking a suicide note from the daughter. In the woman's original deposition, she spelt "antifreeze" as "antifree" and in the daughters supposed suicide note, misspelt it in the same way.

So all you guys and gals out there contemplating murder, be sure to turn on that spellcheck.,

Missing Members: Grateful Bread

Don’t know if you guys remember him, but he was a very interesting character. He posted at Hide5 for a while, I believe.
