“Sword and Scale” Podcast – Craigslist Killer Episode – Narrated by Mike Boudet

A close friend (& reader) and commenter (& reader) recently mentioned an upcoming “Sword and Scale” podcast episode covering the Craigslist Killer and narrated by Mike Boudet.

I’m not sure when the Craigslist Killer epsidode of the podcast airs or is available to download — I still don’t understand podcasts completely (I’m that type of techie but idiot) — but I presume it is soon and I look forward to tuning in/downloading.

As some readers will recall, the Craigslist Killer (Philip Markoff) absolutely heightened my interest in blogging (and eventually just tweeting) about high profile “True Crime” cases which was intensified even further when George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin and claimed self defense.

Here is a link to said podcast on iTunes, I think. lol

Michael (Mike) Brown and Darren Wilson Reenactment Video

I admittedly fast forwarded to the 2:44 mark. Like immediately. I didn’t even check for the source. It could have been from wherever. I think it was the first non youtube, non fox news video or listing I stumbled upon.

To unnecessarily reiterate, I had no idea what type of portrayal I was going to get for this Michael Brown Darren Wilson reenactment video. I  haven’t found the audio on this “too new of a media set-up” other than the gunshots. I could hear those.

So, not knowing what you’re going to get after the 2:44 mark, watch this:


Brendan Gibbons Rapes in 2009, Expelled from U of M 4 Years Later

The “sexual misconduct” occurred November 2009 and Gibbons was expelled December 2013. That was swift…


The truth will set you free, Brady…

Michigan coach Brady Hoke said at a Dec. 23 press conference that Gibbons didn’t travel to Tempe, Ariz., for the Dec. 28 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl because he was dealing with a family matter at home.

Earlier, on Nov. 30, 2013, Gibbons sat out the football team’s regular-season finale against Ohio State after team officials said he suffered an undisclosed muscle injury in the week leading up to the game.

“He’s a little iffy,” Hoke said on Dec. 16. “He’s kicking a little bit. But I don’t want to over-kick him. I’ve never been a kicker, so I can’t imagine that (muscle) problem. So he’s a little iffy.”

In hindsight, I’m sure Hoke probably wishes Gibbons’ answer back in January 2012 after U of M’s Sugar Bowl victory was anything but “Coach always tells me to think about (raping) girls.”

Update 1: From August 2013 (at least someone is doing their job)…


The Business of Guns

Earlier this month, I received an email from a researcher (Michelle Cox) at OnlineMBA.com asking if I’d review a video that they recently published:The Business of Guns.

It’s a well done and thought-provoking video but there’s not much to review. Meaning, the proof is in the pudding/has been debated ad nauseam. Some may be “shocked” by my stance regarding gun control — I’ve been planning to post something since Aurora — but, the bottom line is we need to take our country back (to sound like a Tea Bagger) from the gun industry.
