ONE PERSON is dead in Suffern, New York, after a tree collapsed on them during severe weather conditions, local reports have confirmed. The east coast of America is being pounded by the second nor’easter storm in the past week, with around 60 million people facing up to two feet of snow by Thursday as winter storms rage on. The storm is forecast to bring a foot and a half of snow to New England and the New York region by Thursday, with the heaviest snowfall predicted for midday Wednesday, and up to three inches of snow per hour through the night.

Good Grief, what a ridiculous, hyperbolic headline. 60 million people and 1 dies, due to a tree falling on him? And that´s news? What a bunch of pansies we have become.

Up to 3 inches of snow? Oh My Gosh!

And what´s with this naming of snow storms? Who´s idea was that? It´s winter, it´s the northern hemisphere, it snows. Get over it.

It’s called “winter”.

And who taught this “journalist” to write? The first sentence set my teeth on edge - “one person” equals “them”?

It´s a UK organization, must give those folks a break on the use of English. The only surprise for me is that people live in that area for two and a half months of Summer and all the taxes they care to pay. I have a cousin who once moved his Texan wife to Boston due to a job change. You can guess how that worked out.

Naming storms like this is proof that the current TV weather folks are nutcases.

In early 1969 the Boston area was hit by three major snowstorms in six days. We did not fly into a panic, wring our hands and bemoan our fate. We sucked it up, got out the snow shovels and pressed on. I even went for my DMV driver´s license test between Storms #2 and 3. I learned the value of front wheel drive, and I think the examiner was ready to give me my permit just for making the ten miles from home to the registry.
These storms are nothing new, the problem is too many people have forsaken their survival instincts and forgotten the basic simple actions to prepare for snowstorms, hurricanes, or floods. Suck it up, buttercups. Your ancestors faced far worse with far less.

White House officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a hotly contested budget bill when lawmakers send it to him, despite the fact that it provides for only 33 miles of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump vowed in April 2017 that his long-promised border wall would be finished by the end of his first term in office. ´It´s certainly going to – yeah,´ he told reporters then, answering a specific question about a four-year timeline and adding that ´we have plenty of time.´ But at the rate the White House has agreed to, the project could stretch through more

THERESA MAY was stunned when Jean-Claude Juncker brazenly interrupted her interview with a grab of her arm as the pair walked past the media heading into the EU summit. The Prime Minister was announcing she is looking forward to locking horns with her fellow European leaders to discuss Brexit when the European Commission President wandered over to say hello. A shocked Mrs May peeked over her shoulder to see Mr Juncker then making his way to his own interviews further down the press pack. She replied with a simple “Oh, hello Jean” and a wave before continuing her interview. The

The case of a black servant whipping a white one forms part of a growing body of evidence that Africans were treated equally in Tudor England. Edward Swarthye´s dealings with the Elizabethan court is one of 350 examples of black people whose stories have been compiled in the book, Black Tudors. The book is the first detailed study of early black immigrants and explores Swarthye´s coming to England on a ship under the command of Sir Francis Drake. According to Miranda Kaufmann, senior research fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London, Swarthye had a higher rank than that of fellow

Merkel´s Iran Nuke Deal uber alles

Ever since she singlehandedly ruined Europe through her reckless immigration policy, Angela Merkel ought to be the last person to be handing out advice, now on Iran. Seems that Merkel favors the Iran Nuke Deal that was hatched by Obama, Kerry and the ayatollahs. She thinks it’s so splendid that, though nobody asked, she advised, no warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep hands off…or else. Apparently, she’s worried that since President Trump is on the verge of (wisely) nixing the arrangement, Netanyahu, through a whisper or two, could clinch it for him. Merkel, it’s being reported, told Netanyahu that if the United States

Hillary Clinton continues to attack President Trump while abroad, this time during an interview with a Dutch news network. During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued. Clinton came under fire last week during a trip to India when she

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday told an audience at the University of Miami that he would have "beat the hell out" of President Trump in high school for comments he has made about women. "A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ´I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,´" Biden said, according to ABC News. "They asked me if I´d like to debate this gentleman, and I said, ´No.´ I said, ´If we were in high school, I´d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.´" The rally in

Actors and athletes increasingly using their forums for political activism are turning off viewers, according to a newly released poll. A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

One of my liberal friends admitted to me recently that there is a certain virtue to losing gracefully. She was referencing her disappointment with the mean-spirited salvos Hillary Clinton delivered during her recent visit to India, an outburst closer to being disgraceful than full of grace. I’ve been trying to figure Hillary out for almost a half century, ever since I found myself part of an alumnae audience listening to the Wellesley Class of 1969’s graduation spokesperson -- known then as Hillary Rodham -- erupt in condescending anger at the commencement’s guest speaker. Even all those years ago, it was
