Going Down In A "Glaze Of Glory"

We all like to give to charity, but this may be a little too sacrificial. The Krispy Kreme Challenge is a race at NC State University were the "runners" run 2 miles, eat a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and then run 2 miles back to the finish line-all for charity. Needless to say there are many who do not make it back to the finish line with all the doughnuts still in their stomach. :-) This year they raised $35,000. ESPN did a segment of this race here.

The male challenger won in 28 minutes and downed his dozen doughnuts in 5 minutes!
The female challenger won in 38 minutes and downed her dozen doughnuts in a little under 7 minutes!

I think I might start training for this race. Look for me at the starting line next year. :-0

FINALLY Some One Is Reporting This

Who is really behind the reason AIG was allowed to continue to give out the bonuses they were legally obligated to give to their employees? THE WHITE HOUSE AND SENATOR CHRIS DODD FROM D-CONN.

These politician's sanctimonious outrage is sickening, because they new about this, allowed this, and are only now mad to save their own butts. I hope they all lose in their future reelections. Read the whole admission here at Newsmax.com.

As full disclosure I do not care about the bonuses given out. It was a contract they had to keep. I think a little discretion on their part might have been something they should have thought about though. Duh!!!!!

"Obama Wants To Disarm U.S. Pilots"

This story found at Newsmax.com

The Obama administration is taking steps quietly to shut down the program that qualifies commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in jetliner cockpits in order to ward off another 9/11-type attack.

The administration recently diverted $2 million from a program to train and certify pilots to carry firearms safely while on duty. Instead, it is using the money to hire additional field inspectors to help discipline pilots who step out of line, according to a report in Tuesday’s Washington Times.
I am not at all surprised by this move from a very liberal administration. You can find the rest of the story here.
