ITEM: Wall Street needs and gets a taxpayer bailout ... er ... "rescue" or the American economy will go to Hell.
The truth is there are/were "no guarantees.
The American economy is going there WITH that $800-something-billion Washington D.C. pollys shoveled into it THIS week- also WITH that $600-something-billion package the pollys approved LAST weekend.
Truth: I'm wholly pissed off- and will vote in November STRICTLY for 3rd-party candidates. Then- as America votes in more business as usual Republicrats & Demoblicans- I quit voting altogether.
ITEM: Independence-MO police are involved in yet ANOTHER incident in KC-MO- this time it's a fatal shooting on the city's East Side AROUND 1:35am Saturday morning.
Truman Road & White are nearly 2 miles west of Independence's borders- yet KC-MO police finds IN-MO PD officers already there with Jackson County Sheriff and a shooting victim in the backseat of a car heading to a hospital with the victim.
The victim dies in that backseat but IN-MO PD through 6am won't say how THEY were involved.
Truth is- I guess we- the news media & the public- don't need to know what the truth is.
ITEM: CSW runs with what I thought is a human interest story a couple of weeks ago- about a 3-year-old boy mangled in a mower accident.
I had stumbled upon the child's accident listening to a medical helicopter dispatch- then was emailed additional details on the accident about a week later- plus notification of a help fund set up for the child.
The assistance fund checked out with the local bank number provided. So I run with the human interest side- even sending a few dollars (even though Ms. Rittenhouse needs a medical condition checked out and SHE has no health insurance- thank you Federal government) of our own.
So a few days ago I get an email from a woman who claims to be the child's mother (Michelle?)- telling me that the do-gooder's email had stuff wrong and that Colten Newman was doing just fine thank you and the family DOES have medical insurance.
Now I used a question mark above because there's no way- other than email- to verify that this IS the child's mother who was correcting the information.
Truth is (I guess) is that the child's still in the hospital and there IS/was a help fund for the child.
I'm just a lone wolf in this wilderness- trying to shed a little light and- I hope- a little truth. I only know what I hear and can check out and most of the time it's amazingly dead-on.
Sometimes I don't get it just right. Things sometimes aren't what they appear to be- as a story twists & turns in the light of revelation and investigation.
There's a point here- and if I wear a wool stocking cap it won't show....
