Here’s my new business idea. Put coin-operated photo booths in major malls, stores, etc. The interior of the booth contains a backdrop that can changed to a bathroom, a dressing room, a locker room, or a closet. The customer holds up their phone and takes their own picture, or can use a prop phone.
Ten years ago, I lost a pair of prescription sun glasses, swalled by the murky waters of Medina Lake. Now the tables have turned, my friend. And I am coming for my glasses.
The jagged cracks running through the drying mud on the bottom of Medina Lake are up to 3 feet deep. As the water level drops, the cracks grow into a labyrinth of minicanyons around free-standing dirt towers supported by gelatinous muck.
Exposed by the receding water are hundreds of rusting 55-gallon drums, a Jeep, a hot tub and everything else that once sank in the lake. Homeowners along the shore are trying to make the best of it by organizing a day of trash removal next month along with the annual cleanup of the Medina River.
It’s one of the few benefits of the lake now being only 6.5 percent full.
It’s a tragic story — a former NBA player pisses away his career and gets indicted on murder and gang charges. A woman loses her life.
And yet, in the middle of the grief, there’s this tidbit:
Crittenton, a former Georgia Tech guard, was drafted by the Lakers in 2007 and has also played for the Washington Wizards and Memphis Grizzlies. He was suspended for 38 games during the 2009-10 season for pulling a gun in the Wizards’ locker room. While nursing an injury, he and Gilbert Arenas were involved in a dispute stemming from a card game on a team flight. Arenas brought four guns to the locker room and set them in front of Crittenton’s locker with a sign telling him to “PICK 1.” Crittenton then took out his own gun. Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge on Jan. 25, 2010, and received probation.
Me and my God-fearing neighbors up here in the 830 get a little skittish when we get an all-day rain after a prolonged drought. Remember, Lord, anything more than 10” is wasted. Just a neighborly reminder.
The AP Stylebook today is making some changes in how we describe people living in a country illegally.
Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll explains the thinking behind the decision:
The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that “illegal” should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally.
Why did we make the change?
A. Because you’re tired of demonizing millions of people for no good reason.
