When Bill Clinton Gets Mad At Fox News, Things Get Awesome
I’ve never seen Bill Clinton yell at someone like this before.
"You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’"-Stephen R Covey (via kari-shma)
Colorado Shooting Update of the Day: Saturday brought inconsolable grief to families of slain theater-goers, as authorities began to identify the deceased in the shooting at an Aurora, CO movie theater. Authorities and eyewitnesses have also helped piece together an idea of how the horrific scene played out early Friday morning.
The Denver Post released an info graphic of the theater, which sheds light on alleged gunman James Holmes’ path of destruction. The Post also compiled an image of the type of armor and weapons Holmes is reported to have used in the attack.
President Barack Obama, in his weekly address, spoke about the incident and offered the support of the federal government in bringing the perpetrator to justice.
Police set off a small, controlled explosion at Holmes’ apartment, and the police department is “confident that they’ve eliminated all major threats inside the apartment.”
Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight Rises, is the latest person associated with the film to express remorse over the incident:
Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.
The suspect, James Holmes, is locked in solitary confinement. He has exhibited irrational behavior and remains on suicide watch, while other inmates talk about wanting to kill him.
National tragedies don’t come without at least one group making outrageous claims as to who is ultimately responsible. Fred Jackson of the American Family Association wasted little time blaming the ACLU, gays and liberal churches.

I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. For one man, it was in the middle of a busy food court on a Saturday evening.
I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift. After Saturday evening, I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given.
I feel like I am overreacting about what I experienced. But I can’t help but be thankful for whatever caused me to make the choices that I made that day. My mind keeps replaying what I saw over in my head. I hope the victims make a full recovery. I wish I could shake this odd feeling from my chest. The feeling that’s reminding me how blessed I am. The same feeling that made me leave the Eaton Center. The feeling that may have potentially saved my life." -Jessica Redfield (real last name: Ghawi) was shot and killed last night at a midnight screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ along with 11 others when a gunman opened fire in a theater.

A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn’t want the seat. The seat was next to a black man. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The woman said “I cannot sit here next to this black man.” The fight attendant said “Let me see if I can find another seat.” After checking, the flight attendant r…eturned and stated “Ma’am, there are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class.” About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated “The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to such a disgusting, unpleasant person, the captain has agreed to allow the switch to first class.” Before the woman could say anything, the attendant turned to the black man and said, “Therefore sir, if you would please retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class, as the captain would hate for you to have to sit next to such a disgusting person.”
Passengers in the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.
I never had money, and I was very happy without it. When I die, my money’s not gonna come with me. My movies will live on - for people to judge what I was as a person. I just want to stay curious.Happy Birthday Heath Ledger! (April 4th 1979 - January 22nd 2008)
