I have this great music trivia book, “Rock and Roll Heaven Entrance Exam.” So I got the idea to have Will Bunch, Charlie Pierce, Molly Ivors and Steve Simels on Virtually Speaking Susie for a music trivia night, because we’re all such music geeks.
So last Friday night, I start looking for the book and can’t find it. Bright idea: order it from Amazon Prime (two-day shipping) and after I use it, I can always give it as a present. I order the book (Amazon promises me it will be here Tuesday).
Nope. Never shows up.
Turns out that, through a horrible chain of events that are FUBAR, Amazon has me down as having two accounts — and only one of them has two-day shipping. WTF? I make another desperate search for the original copy, but no luck. So I discover there’s an iPhone app which makes the book into a game, and spring for the $.99.

A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.
Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.
Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.
A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.
