Now I understand. Prinnie thinks that she is the executioner. Got news for her.
Hi. I’m back.
Months ago, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine convened a grand jury in Steubenville. At that point, i decided to sit back and let that develop and take a break from Steubenville blogging. I could not have predicted that September would roll around and there’d be no end in sight. But, here we are. And no end is in sight. So, I’ve decided to pick up blogging, anyway.
I also did a new Radio Stranahan show about Steubenville today: you can listen here.
A month ago, a major article came out in the New Yorker by Ariel Levy entitled Trail By Twitter. It was deeply researched-must be nice to have those New Yorker travel budgets-and got a lot of the story right. Not all of it, but a lot and certainly more than most. It also confirmed what I’d been reporting here on this blog for months; that the Steubenville narrative…

To my eyes, this word tumbles forward like a landslide of eggs and eggshells, of eyes and calling mouths, biting mouths, with the repetition of letter forms o o c c c: “Oh! Oh! See! See! See!” as the various busy bodies spot, point, call others, gather the forces, tumble down on the object…
Tumble? Perhaps more like tweet. You recognize the –cracy, of course: you’ve seen it in democracy and autocracy and theocracy and so on. It’s from Greek κρατία kratia ‘rule’. But ochlocracy is not a form of government any more than a fever is a durable state of health. Ochlocracy is a stampede, an avalanche, a corybantic frenzy; the very leaders of the group may be ripped to pieces as though by Bacchae. Ochlocracy is a Twitter-pile, when a strident voice calls out an infraction, gathers the censure, and within hours thousands or even millions…

RadioNewzBlog is nothing but trashy, attention-seeking stupidity. Hard to fathom that one could be so obtuse.
I do not know why I bother to look at RadioNewz. It’s obviously a site designed for those who are in complete moral bankruptcy. Honestly, who has the time to follow around and worry about who’s doing what and when?
Quite a few human lives caught in a web of hatred, oh what a wasted life. Life is way to precious and short, to feel anything other than that which makes you happy. If someone doesn’t post an opinion you like, don’t keep talking to them, move on with your life. Don’t waste your breath. If someone calls you something ugly, and you know it’s not true, why waste time dwelling on it? If it’s not true, it shouldn’t matter to you.
When looking over all the latest post, I see someone who has not only too much time on their hands, but who’s only goal in life is pointing…

Obnoxious, obnoxiosity, obnoxy = begging for cash from your customers.
Ah, the constant lexical capriciousness of the English language. It’s like a combination of Christmas and Hallowe’en: when you unbox a word, you don’t know if it will be trick or treat. It’s like trying to learn to eat with a full formal flatware setting: the multifarious forks, knives, and spoons, there for you to choose from wrongly and make yourself look like a bumpkin. Our derived word forms in particular display a pointed obnoxion.
What do you mean obnoxion isn’t a word? Religious – religion; contagious – contagion… What is it, obnoxity? You know, loquacious – loquacity; mendacious – medacity… Well, then, how about obnoxiety? Like anxious – anxiety? Let’s see… calamitous – calamity could give us obnoxy… It’s not obnoxicity, anyway, right, because that really is just an –ity with an –ic before it… Maybe obnoxiosity on the model of monstrous – monstrosity

I never really looked at the prior content on RadioNewz until I started following the WS lawsuit debacle. What I saw of Radio’s posts during that seemed somewhat levelheaded. Recently everything on her site has been dedicated to some type of tabloid trash one reads at the check – out line but doesn’t waste money buying. I wondered what her site was like before the WS lawsuit. So I looked back, and yep, the same old trash. Always half assed accusations without much proof to back up what she claimed, a deviousness to find some person or people to trash and bash. It’s quite appalling.
I then directed a friend of mine to look over the site, so we could discuss what was going on there. She tells me, “I don’t get it. Who gives a damn what these people are doing, or not doing, all the time? What is…

This must be talking about Radionewz. lol
It’s been a while since I have had the time to sit and read all the goings on in the crime sleuthing communities lately. What I have been reading has me greatly disturbed. One notable blogger’s site has turned into a drama train wreck of “outing” what appears to be a group of people who had a dissident opinion on various crime cases from what others had.
In all the various screen shots and links that have been posted, the only crime proven to have been committed is not sharing the view of some others. By not sharing that view, by not just “going away” and “remaining silent” or not taking the shit that was thrown at them, these people are bullies. Oh, and let’s not forget, some follow multiple cases, just like all those who are bitching about it do.
Basically, what we are seeing is that these people…

Oh, you sad scraper, scruting some screed scribbled by a scruffy scribe, be it scrubbed on your screen or scrawled in scrimped script on a scroll, or scratched like scrimshaw: so much lexical scree to scramble through, you could just screech. Can a scrupulous scrutator scrounge some scrap of sense from it, or should you just tell the scoundrel to scrute themself?
Scrute? And why not? We have scrutiny and scrutineer and scrutinize, with that in in, but we also have scrutate, and we have inscrutable and also (yes) scrutable. And they all trace back to Latin scrutari ‘examine, scrutinize’. It, in turn, apparently comes from scruta ‘old or broken stuff, trash, frippery, trumpery’ (per OED). Which means that the source sense of scrutiny and all the other scrut words is rag-picking. Digging through the detritus, scraping and scrabbling in the scraps and scree. Scruting.

The details of the Websleuths lawsuit’s end have yet to be released, but some feel it’s a big win for Tricia. I can’t say that for sure.
At the end of the day, the courts couldn’t force out one owner. All that could be settled was the monetary differences the two were sharing. Which leads me to believe that Tricia had to have offered to buy out Sue. So while Tricia may have “won” the site, Sue may have received a substantial amount of cash for this to happen. To me it would have had to be a substantial amount of money too, in order for Sue to walk away from it, as there were other settlement attempts that Sue walked away from.
Here is the thing: When you look at the differences these two owners have, what could this lawsuit have accomplished in the terms of resolving their differences?…

Tsk Tsk…she never stops does she.
We’ve seen it over and over again. When law enforcement releases information to the media, written autopsy reports are included, but never autopsy photos. We get the drawings of a body showing wounds, but not actual photos. At trial is where the autopsy photos are shown to the jury. When those trials are live-streamed, the public seldom sees the autopsy photos because they are not nice. Medical examiners explain the autopsy. The photos are not left to the opinions of lay people.
That however, did not stop a blogger from not only obtaining autopsy photos, but also giving her opinion about what they show and challenging the mother of the dead teen to prove her wrong.
The video on the link for WCTV reports that they reached out to the blogger, but have not received a response. I urge you to watch the video. It includes an interview with Kendrick’s…

Notorious Ursa, who was so keen to post screen shots from a secret thread from the On the Docket Off the Record forum, has been slacking in her updating duties lately. She has failed to update the court document filings, especially this last filing where Tricia is trying to fight Sue’s Jury Demand. Has she gone on Holiday? Or is she starting reading the writing on the walls and realize that all is not as it seems with this lawsuit?
Word tasting, yum!
A word bursts on the scene, fresh, faddish, perhaps consciously classical or rebellious or hip. It has its Warhol-appointed quarter-hour or its full Shakespearean hour on the stage, and then it slips back, retreats into the thin pages of the dictionary, eventually dies with a dagger through its heart and has its grave condition marked with an obelisk. Such is life; vanity may be glorious, but all glory is vain.
But just because this too shall pass doesn’t mean we should despise it. Indeed, the very evanescence of life’s delights enjoins us to enjoy them: if not now, when? Every moment is a new opportunity. Take it. Just don’t become attached to it. Relish it and relinquish it. Spend the moment well; just don’t give it meaning beyond its worth. Don’t think your first-class upgrade makes you a first-class person. Take the meretricious for its merry tricks, knowing you…

Lessons learned, old lessons remembered……
(Alert. Some might find the content in the comments of others presented in this article to be offensive.)
Court’s order restraining Mr. Stalker from harassing scrodriguez, directly and indirectly.
Five words I would hear on a regular basis day in and day out when training as an amateur boxer; “Protect yourself at all times.” You hear those words time and time again in the gym, even while hitting heavy bags or doing mitt work. It’s important even during sparring although those sessions are controlled and not as intense as an actual fight.
The idea is to instill that way of thinking into your head so you keep your hands up, keep your head moving and your feet moving, thus reducing the chance of getting caught with a shot you don’t see only to deposit you on the canvas.
It’s the last set of words you…
