The Walmart Death Rumor

Apparently a text message is spreading all over the county about a gang initiation that would happen tonight at Walmart where three women would be killed. The text even says this has been "confirmed by the Wise County Sheriff's Office." Uh........fake. Edit: Fox 4: Fake Channel 5: Fake Star-Telegram: Fake Messenger: Sending Joe Duty to cover it (kidding) Edit #2: Why does the Messenger go out of its way not to use the word "Walmart" in this Update blurb?

Barry, this goes over the top somehow on your blog. WAY OVER THE TOP.

You don't need this.

WE don't need this.

Tell your readers, why?

Sensationalism?

London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look at us
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

It would only take about 300 miles of bridges total to connect North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. Another 600 miles of bridge to connect all that to Antarctica. Amazing.

speaking of death, there is nothing on the update (as usual) but i was coming home from work about 730 tonight and there were 2 helipoters on 114 for a bad accident. i had to take a detour 35 minutes from a spot that would had taken me 5 minutes to get home from where 114 was closed. BG, tell us what happened

You could do the same thing with tunnels and find a bunch of cool rocks and stuff while you were digging.

Unfortunately, all some people need these days is an idea like this.

Speaking of rumors: I heard Denise Richardson died in a downhill mountain biking accident from a head injury.

not related to Wal-Mart shootings, but will there be no more "huddling" at the Huddle House??? Noticed they were closed. Sure didn't last long? Bad location, bad food, bad service - what gives?

If they're gonna shoot women at WalMart, they'll need to caliber-up from the 9mms to something more like a 416 Rigby.
