The LuLac Edition #2453, June 23rd, 2013

Our “Maybe I’m Amazed” logo. 


MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that the only thing those three knuckleheads in Taylor cared about after they starved their son/brother to death was whether or not they would still get his check! Adding insult to injury, these zeroes did a taste testing on WNEP TV at Wal Mart for granola bars two weeks before this guy died. The sorry excuse for a mother said they couldn’t get him medical care because they had no transportation to get to a Doctor. But they sure got their ugly asses up to Wal Mart, didn’t they? I’ve said it many time, the family you get when you are born or adopted into can be the best winning lottery ticket you will win in your life or the worst. For Robert Gensiak's, he got the losing ticket with this clan of scumbags. And do not tell me that it seems like the mother doesn’t look right. Sorry. She was “with it” enough to keep track of his checks. Evil has many faces, and some of them are vapid and dumb. Like foxes. And what about those sisters? Imagine if your son or daughter brought home one of them! 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……….at how beautiful the Riverfront looks this time of year. Was down there Friday night for Topic A and really was impressed with everything. Kudos to the Riverfest people who started this event a few years ago when there were few takers or people who wanted in. They stuck with it. And today on the 41st anniversary of the Agnes Flood, the work done there as well as the great event highlight the resiliency of our community as well as the role government, yes that big bad government had in our recovery from that terrible time. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that the madness of abuse continues in NEPA. In Dushore, a couple has been accused of keeping a their 12 year old daughter with cerebral palsy in a makeshift cage. These two beauts are 55-year-old Richard Frankenfield and 49-year-old Mary Beth Frankenfield. They said they locked the kid away to keep her from getting into things. Well, at least the small consolation is they didn’t go out and drown her! 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that back in the 70s, many media people made fun of the Newswatch 16 slogan, “We’re Everywhere!”. Laugh or not, it rings true. They seem to have a lot of archival files that they happen to come by whenever there’s a news story. Just look at what they came up with when this Taylor tragedy was revealed. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Teddy Roosevelt had a pet bear when he was in the White House. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……. my Pirates and Indians seem to be above water this season. Could it be one of the two might be in the playoffs? 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that James Gandolfini was an actor that kept you coming back for more in that Tony Soprano role. Kind of like what Jon Hamm does with his Don Draper. Season finale of “Madman” is tonight on AMC at 10PM. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….at how Larry King got on CNN just hours after Gandolfini died and started yammering about how much the actor loved food. It is true that obesity is one of the main causes for heart disease but there are a lot of skinny guys who can pack it away too. Then the New York Post came out with a story about the actor’s last meal. The only reason why this is being brought up is because he was a large man. If Woody Allen dropped over from a coronary, they wouldn’t be dissecting his last meal. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……at the adverse reaction on Twitter (God, I hate Twitter, it’s like a license for morons to limit their thinking, such as it is to 140 characters) to Lebrun James’ comments after winning a hard fought championship series. James said he was an inner city kid from Akron that gets a chill every time he walks into the locker room and sees his number 6 with his name on the jersey. Lebrun was criticized for bashing his critics. He answered that question because he was asked whether he cared what people said about him. I guarantee you, if Tim Tebow or any other white athlete said what James said, they’d be celebrated. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………at the appreciation that has grown for James. I am not an NBA watcher full time. I’m a Knick fan but watch only the playoffs. But I’ve been around long enough to see Russell and Chamberlain at the tail end of their careers. Plus Jerry West, Bill Bradley, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, John Stockton, Kobe Bryant and Shaq.  This guy might not have them beat, but he is pretty damn close to being on par with all of them. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Matt Cartwright recently introduced the Time Off to Vote Act (H.R. 2350). The legislation would require employers to grant their workers at least two hours of paid leave to vote in federal elections. Great idea.  Maybe if it passes, it could be extended to the local elections too. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that if you shake a can of mixed nuts, the larger nuts will rise to the top. Kind of like the real world and corporate America.

Yonk, get of the "good" idea of Cartwright. It is not a good idea and government has got to stop spending small business money on silliness. NO, it isn't silly to vote but the polls are open from 7 AM to 8 PM and if that isn't good enough, absentee ballots are always an option. I guess you need to invest some of your own money in a business adventure to understand other people don't have the right to spend your investment. I always considered you to have some common sense but it got away from you this time.

Gotta agree with 10:11. Small business has enough of a fight to stay above water. Also, I feel that's ticket for abuse if there ever was one! Except for your beloved WalMart, "they make enough money on everything else."

I know you're not thrilled with Twitter but I look forward to your insights twice a week. Keep Tweeting!

Saw you on TV the other night on Topic A. Very good debate with Tarone. Looking good.

James although a very good player doesn't belong in the group you mentioned because he is MeBron! MeFirst, MeAlways. The other guys had teammates and displayed some class. MeBron has corporate companions and investors. He just aint ever gonna get the endorsements the Great Michael Jordan got! The idiot wears #6 (changed from Jordans 23) because he says nobody great ever wore that number. Guess he never heard of RUSSELL(the greatest winner and teammate ever in basketball) or Doc Irving? The first of many red flags went up when poor impoverished MeBron was discovered to be driving a Lincoln Navigator to High School back in Rubbertown!
Yonks, the way he left Cleveland was the lowest class thing I ever saw in sports!
Guess Who

Maybe if we mix up Congress, all the nuts will fall to the bottom. Not the top.

WNEP TV set the standard back in '76. They have been number one ever since!
