Here are a few news stories that caught my eye this week.

 

#PermitPatty & Friends CBS News

A few weeks ago Barbecue Becky called the police on a group of people barbecuing in a park in Oakland, CA. Then this week started with Permit Patty near AT&T Park and ended with Burrito Bob on the BART. Not only is the Bay Area extremely expensive to live at, apparently,  everyone there is a snitch. Let people BBQ. Let children sell water bottles. Never, and I mean NEVER interrupt someone’s burrito eating session. That’s just wrong. If you have a problem with people enjoying a summer day with a BBQ or you don’t like a little girl selling water to save up for a vacation or you don’t like a man eating one of the top 5 best foods, then you have problems. DON’T CALL THE POLICE!

LeBron is Free ESPN

It’s official, LeBron James declines his player option and becomes a free agent. Laker LeBron?

Annapolis shooting Baltimore Sun 

This hits home in a few ways. 1. I am a member of the media. 2. I live less than 45 mins away from this tragedy. My main takeaway from this, so far, is you shouldn’t hold grudges. Find ways to let go of things you have no control of.

 

This Week’s Show

I watched Gordon Ramsay’s new show Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell and Back, 2 weeks in a row. So far both episodes feature a failing restaurant (typical) and a male figure that is avoiding dealing with a personal tragedy.

Self Improvement

This one kind of counts. I got a haircut.

Not my haircut.

Not my haircut.

Here are a few articles that caught my eye this week.


This is Why I Don’t Ride ABC13 Houston

Over in Daytona Beach, Florida, they have people falling off roller coasters. 1. This isn’t even a weird story compared to the other nonsense that goes on in Florida. 2. I’m about to reinstall the Roller Coaster Tycoon app on my phone.

 

Consensual Torture Miami Herald

Here’s a case where we need Leonidas to kick another dude into an endless pit. His son could watch this too. 

 

A $132,000 Mistake The KC Star

Basically, a kid is running around a community center doing whatever he wants and then he knocks over a statue. Now the parents refuse to pay for the damages. I don’t blame the parents either. I wouldn’t pay for my dumb kid’s stupid mistake. The kid needs to pay. He’s young enough that if we start garnishing his wages now, he’ll, have it paid off in no time. If the parents end up paying for this, they could chalk it up to a life lesson and they no longer have to pay for his college education, AKA a $132,000 mistake.

Trump Signs an Executive Order CBS News

Probably the biggest story of the week. Soooo basically we have these kids. Maybe they are in cages. Maybe families are being separated. Maybe the kids weren’t with their families when they came to America and that’s why we separated them. I don’t know if anyone really knows. At first, Kirstjen Nielsen got on TV and said only Congress could fix this issue, but then Trump signs an executive order and by him doing that he "fixes" the issue without Congress. Regardless, political Twitter still isn’t happy on both sides. Please tell me, what is the solution to all of this?

 

This Week’s Show

World Cup: I’m rooting for Spain. Why? Well, my parents had their honeymoon in Spain and it’s very clear when you look at the timeline, that’s where I was… “created”.

Self Improvement

If you’re going through a rough patch in life, you need to look up “Law of Attraction” on Google. LoA is the belief that by focusing on positive thoughts you can bring positive experiences into your life. The same works for if you have negative thoughts you can bring negative experience into your life. I’m trying it out myself. Who knows if this really works. My closest experience with this is I spent 3 months on a bicycle thinking positively about getting a Radio Producer job and I was hired within days of finishing my trip. Probably just a coincidence.
