Straight from the BBC News: “A police officer kept chasing a suspect for his first arrest – despite getting a six-inch branch stuck in his eye.
Pc John Nash slipped on mud and slid head first into a bush while pursuing the man in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, just six days into the job.
He only realised he was injured when he arrested the suspect, who told him he had “better get to hospital”.
Pc Nash, 25, underwent three hours of surgery, which saved his eye, and says he now just wants to return to work.”
Straight from This Ain’t Hell: “According to TSO who was at the “Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball”, this newly sworn-in President for the first time in 56 years blew off the ball (that’s 14 Inaugurations).
Some background on the ball;
The American Legion sponsors the ball, which recognizes recipients of Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award. It started in 1953 for President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first inauguration.
Event co-sponsors include 13 other veterans service organizations, among them the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Paralyzed Veterans of America.”
I for one, am glad that he was able to make it to the RIAA and BET balls instead of wasting his time visiting the MoH winners. It should be obvious that the RIAA and BET have done far more for this country than any MoH winner ever did or will.
