   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  This is the cartoon panel of the day on lcom right now. I love it.
I'm not familiar with the artist. The name looks like 'lisa', but there's there's no 'lisa' in Wikipedia's world list of political cartoonists. Could someone help me out, please?

   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  Was going through the few notes from Kevin that I saved; came across a story I thought might be fondly remembered by those of you with whom he also shared it (and enjoyed by the others among us who missed this one ).
_________

Tuesday, June 14, my grandson and I were headed to Texas A&M on a long-planned road trip to take him to his JROTC summer drill camp. At 9:30 in the morning on I-40, two hours outside of Barstow, a drunk with three times the legal limit (.255 ) caused a horrific accident which resulted in my airbags deploying before my rented camper-van went over the embankment and down about 60 feet (And did not roll over!!! ). My last words before going over the edge were, "Lord Jesus Christ don't let anything happen to my boy." He answered that in spadesI Immediately after our abrupt halt, which caused my seatbelt to crack my ribs, my grandson slid out of his seatbelt, found the fire extinguisher, and extinguished the flames coming through the large crack in the firewall. Another miracle: CDF was a dozen vehicles behind us and saw the whole thing develop. They came racing down the Hill with all sorts of firefighting gear only to have this cloud of extinguishing powder from my grandson erupt in their face. They asked him what happened he said, "I don't really know. I was reading and I heard my grandpa cuss. He doesn't cuss, so I looked up and Bam!"

(I think I dropped the F-bomb ).

It took them another hour to extricate me using the Jaws of Life. And I had minor scrapes, and contusions! And the drunk walked!

   Timber Queen  I remember this post. Kevin certainly had a great skill in telling a story. "I heard my grandpa cuss. He doesn't cuss, so I looked up and Bam!" That line made me laugh again, like the first time I read it. And I would like to echo Kevin's prayer that day, "Lord Jesus Christ don't let anything happen to my boy." So that his grandson grows to be a man that emulates his grandpa.

   Lana720  Timber Queen, I love your comment about Kevin's grandson.
I remember that wreck and how grateful he was that he was the one with the injuries. What a role model that young man had.

   Kono posted on Lana720  Since your question was in a reply to someone else's post, my answer didn't automatically get to you, Lana. So if you'll forgive a lazy copy/paste here...

Beautiful tribute! I remember when they did that for President Reagan's funeral.
Does anyone know what is planned for Kevin, Marine Cap's service?

   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  Thank God for the gift of meeting Kevin here and a couple of times in person, and for giving Kevin the gift of living to see his grandchildren and completing his ministry formation. He spoke of both things with similar joy and reverence. May he experience now the fullness of life in God, in whose loving grip he was so conscious of being. His erudite and passionate comments here have been missed in recent months, and this brings a certain permanancy to that.

Thanks to LCom for announcing this, though. Neither major local paper has a death announcment for him yet.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord...

   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  Did anyone happen to save Lcom's home-page image from yesterday? (Its caption was, "If I had a dog, it would look like the dog Obama ate." )

Didn't realize 'til today that I wish I'd saved a copy of it...

   Kono posted on NellVada  Just a follow-up on our comments in the story about that Muslim 'Sacred Sex' thing (on Lcom at http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=662445 ) ... to add this there would probably be considered 'chatting' -- verboten on Lcom.

The story of the virgin birth of Christ is in the Gospels, which are canonical books for all Christian churches. The story of Joseph being chosen by God to be Mary's guardian until she came of-age (the whole scene with his staff sprouting a lily flower ) isn't in the Bible at all, though. That's from the book, The Protoevangelium of James, which was deemed apocryphal and rejected from the canon. (That's why I admitted that Joseph's taking care of Mary when she was still underage may not be an appropriate example for the topic we were discussing. )

Sorry for the confusion, all of which could have been avoided easily if I'd been more precise about what I was labeling 'apocryphal'.

   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  Forgive me if this has been covered here already. I haven't been by in awhile.

But attached is a pic of the stealth drone. Am I the only one who thinks what Iran is showing looks like a prop from a high school play? What's going on here?

   Rake King  Maybe it's a hoax on our part sending in a drone that has all the wrong information, technology, to take them off into a dead end. To make the hoax believable we would ask for it back and talk about plans to recover it. Maybe we messed up, but just maybe we're sly as a fox. I realize Obama doesn't seem to be that smart, but some generals certainly are.

   Kono  Thanks, y'all. My retired-Navy techno-geek brother-in-law said he thought this pic was of a scale model, and the pics being shown by Iran show the real thing. Looking at the pics again with your assessment and his in mind, I'm inclined to agree.

   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  I don't have a witty caption for the home site's pic of MO. But it reminds me SO much of my big brother's penchant (when we were much younger, of course ) for turning a potentially embarrassing moment into humor... by interjecting some statement to get everyone's attention to listen to something he was going to say (e.g. "Of course, this is how the thinking man would see it..." ) -- right before an incident of quite-audiable flatulence... ("Did someone else hear a duck around here? )

Attaching pic here, as it will likely give way to a new Photo of the Day tonight or tomorrow...

   Kono posted on Main Page The Lobby  Her little girl turns up dead, body decomposed for a month, and she claims the girl died in the family pool. She spent the intervening month partying, and her parents helped her dispose of the girl's body. She's accused of killing the girl. She puts on a great show of being distraught during her trial, amidst a series of bizarre and contradictory stories from her and her parents, and she is acquitted of the killing.

And this is how she looks the day after her acquittal. She gets to face the rest of her life, knowing that her daughter is still dead. Does this look like the face of someone who just got away with murder, or what?

   Bettijo  Casey is going to find the outside world very unfriendly. Most people appear to believe she is guilty of murder or at the least contributed in some way to Carylee's death. There are not many places (if any ) in which she will be welcomed. She will be like OJ in that people will scorn her where ever she goes. And, like OJ, I suspect she will end up in prision again for some other reason.

   Shooter1002  She's already gotten one porno film offer.
She may have millions in book and interview money waiting but she only gets one round of that. How many books can she sell? Who will interview her in a year? Lots of parties and lots of booze and lots of drugs waiting for her. The porno offers will look a lot better when the money runs out!

   Kono  Maybe Casey should move to France?

I'd pony-up to watch a celebrity boxing match on PPV between Casey and Tonya Harding -- or even better, between Casey and Muhammed Ali's hard-pounding daughter.

Aw, heck, who am I fooling? I'd feed PPV to see Casey go three rounds with Mike Tyson... (Ok, maybe not; but the thought alone gave me a sense of satisfaction. )
