At a time when Gujarat is seeing an agitation over the assault on Dalits in the name of “cow protection”, a group of Hindutva activists allegedly assaulted five persons in Chikkamagaluru district, cl
Feelings are heated and divided over the teams and the announcers (poor Joe Buck!), but baseball fans all agree: Retired Marine Sgt. Dan Clark’s rendition of “God Bless America” during the 7th inning stretch was amazing.
God bless Sgt. Clark!
A bit of controversy has developed, because now it seems that Dan Clark is not retired from the Marine Corps. Clark did serve in the Marines, but he retired as a sergeant from the Massachusetts State Police. The Marines had given him permission to wear the dress blues, however. The full story here.
Looks like the panel for Around The Horn is all black today. I'm assuming hockey won't be the most popular topic on the show.

A step closer to equality.
The panel, hosted by the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, consisted of five MPs from the NSW Parliamentary LGBTI Working Group. Trevor Khan represented the Nationals, Bruce Notley-Smith the Liberals, Penny Sharpe Labor, Mehreen Faruqi the Greens and Independent MP Alex Greenwich was also present.
Mr Warren took part in Sydney’s first Mardi Gras on June 24, 1978, where he witnessed friends being arrested and subjected to violence from the police. 53 people were arrested altogether, and subsequently had their names published in The Sydney Morning Herald, leading to job losses and harassment.
“I would like [the apology] to be worded in a way that highlights the discrimination and injustice to our whole community before and after 1978 until the law changed in 1984,” Mr Warren told BuzzFeed News.
An apology had been discussed over the past decade, but came up in formal discussions recently as convictions for adults having consensual homosexual sex were expunged last year, said Mr Warren. â€¨â€¨
The expungement coincided with the 30th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexual sex in NSW in 1984.
Nationals MP Trevor Khan told the forum the working group had considered including an apology in the legislation to expunge homosexual sex convictions, but were concerned it may overcomplicate and ultimately defeat the vote.
However, Mr Khan, Penny Sharpe, Mehreen Faruqi, and Bruce Notley-Smith (Alex Greenwich had left early) all offered emphatic support for Mr Warren’s proposal going forward. With cross-party support from members of the LGBTI Cross Party Working Group, an apology could well become a reality after the election.
He told BuzzFeed News “All of the gestures about liaison officers and better officers and better training don’t really wash until from the very senior levels of the government and the police they acknowledge that they did something wrong, they apologize for it.”
It took Mr Murphy about three years to recover from the physical injuries he suffered at the hands of the police. “I was severely battered in the head, bashed in the stomach, knocked to the ground, a very heavy kick in one leg…which meant I couldn’t walk properly for months and months. I suffered lots of concussion symptoms, the trauma, the headaches — over and over.”
Mr Murphy’s name was printed, but he told BuzzFeed News he was okay on this front. “I didn’t have a job, so I couldn’t get sacked!” he said. “All of my friends were supportive, and my landlord didn’t read that newspaper, so there was no issue with the little flat I was living in.”
Neither Warren nor Murphy can overstate the emotional meaning and closure an apology would carry.
“I do realize now that there was no real recovery,” said Mr Murphy. “I am changed by the violence that I suffered, and dealing with the trauma is always hard.”
Sort of like thinking about what goes down in hotel rooms for too long is unsettling, dedicating too much thought to what’s happened in a car that’s been passed around so many times is alarming to say the least.
But what this guy in the video below found living in the car he rented from Enterprise back in 2012, well…that just takes the nasty cake. The inside of the car was literally crawling with cockroaches.
According to the poster, they were able to kill the roaches by bug bombing the car. While effective, it’s still not something you want to be responsible for when you’ve signed a rental agreement. What’s the craziest thing that you’ve ever seen in a rental car? Hopefully, it wasn’t this bad.
