The Frontier is good journalism, but can it counter bad TV news?

A case report about the seizure and death of an 11-month old after exposure to cannabis has prompted headlines about “the first marijuana overdose death” this week.

Except that’s not what the doctors meant.

“We are absolutely not saying that marijuana killed that child,” said Thomas Nappe, an author of the report who is now the director of medical toxicology at St. Luke’s University Health Network in Bethlehem, Pa.

When MC and I first moved here last spring, we continued our habit of watching the 10pm news.  After a few weeks of the ABQ news leading with all sorts of crime, we turned it off.  Too depressing.  Second reason being, since we are right at the base of a mountain range, the weather can be a bit difficult to predict.  A weather rock seems to be the most accurate.

The rumor mill is spinning again. So I heard that Mathis Brothers is taking over the old Macy’s. I don’t know how accurate this information is. If it does happen I think it would be great for the mall and Mathis Brothers!!


Oh, yuck..!!   Gag me with a 10 lb turkey!!   Another Mathis place - just what Tulsa needs....NOT !!

Tulsa Whirled: "Unlit highways makes lanes hard to determine and other traffic less visible. Some particularly shaded areas are terrifying after sundown."

The un-named Tulsa World writer just described 90% of the highways in America, where speed limits are much faster and people manage to survive with only their headlights and painted lines to protect them from disaster.

Ha!    Blaming unlit for their massive fail at keeping lanes properly marked.  BS on them!!

Texas Rangers serve Apple with warrants for access to Sutherland Springs shooter's iPhone

Two days after the shooting the FBI's San Antonio office head, Christopher Combs, complained that encryption was preventing investigators from accessing Kelley's data. The iPhone was at some point flown out to an FBI lab in Quantico, Va., but without success.

Law enforcement may have missed a critical window during which they could have tried to use Kelley's fingers to unlock his iPhone without a passcode, though it's not certain that would have worked. Regardless, investigators reportedly failed to contact Apple during that window, leading to Apple itself getting in touch after seeing Combs' press conference.

You would think by now they would already have everyone's fingerprint available...I know they have dozens of mine...

“I know this photo was taken before he ran for public office,” Jost added, “but it was also taken after he was a sophomore in high school.”

SNL has always been into the 'politically incorrect' - it's in their DNA.  Always lots of sexual innuendo, etc.   Jane Curtin even flashed the camera on Weekend Update one time...very long time ago...  Anyone who hasn't done their homework on working with the whole crew may be surprised.  As Leeann was...

Former Oklahoma state senator has agreed to plead guilty to a child sex trafficking offense
http://newsok.com/article/5572707

It would be ironic if he was one of the lawmakers who pushed to radically expand the definition of "child sex trafficking"

FBI claims Apple won't help them and refuses to help.

Apple provides documentation they didn't refuse anyone and even offered to help but were refused by the FBI.

Real story: FBI would just really like it if everyone would quit locking their stuff. Also leave your front door open.
