A Florida man, found eaten by an alligator this summer, died from a meth overdose before his body was ripped apart by the reptile, according to a medical examiner's findings. Michael Ford, 45, was found face down in a canal in Fort Meade on June 27 and Polk County Sheriff's investigators theorized he might have drowned before an alligator began eating the man's remains, NBC News reported. A hand and a foot belonging to Ford was found in the beast's stomach.

Comments:

It didn't hurt a bit. No panic. Just like Luke Fuchs in Used Cars, without doing a thing at all he went unhesitatingly to his end.

Before the cops killed the alligator they found it wandering around mumbling itself himself.

Cure meth mouth without a trip to the dentist: Alligator mississippiensis aka American alligator. As a former Surgeon General once said, "We all gotta die of sumpthin'. Ford's demise wouldn't have made a modern update of What a Way to Go.

I'm not sure why this croc death is getting so much attention, but it is. Probably not the first time a drunk, high or impaired person was taken down by those reptiles.

The decisive defeat of the British Labour party strongly suggests that a fundamental shift in the politics of the world has taken place — that the non-ideological wave of unrest sweeping the world really has deeper roots than Donald Trump or Fox News. Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, the founders of Fusion GPS, tried to blame the fall of Labour on Putin.

BROOKSVILLE — By the time they arrived in Hernando County, the burglars had refined their methods. Michael Ornelas, 56, was a locksmith and expert safe cracker, investigators would later say, while William Granims, 57, knew how to monitor police radios, and Matthew Petruccelli, 67, served as lookout. Ornelas and Granims had worked together a long time. In the late 1990s, they stole more than a million dollars of jewelry and money from stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. They got caught. They did time. They got out. They moved to Florida. From 2011 to 2012, they hit four stores, authorities say. More in the next couple of years.

The impeachment proceedings being prepared by the Democrats in Congress and the Trump administration efforts to portray it as a coup may together produce an allergic reaction more lethal than the disease each professes to cure. To senior Democrat Adam Schiff, the removal of Donald Trump is too important to be left to the 2020 ballot box. "The argument 'Why don't you just wait?' amounts to this: 'Why don't you just let him cheat in one more election?'" The current US political crisis, whichever side prevails, raises the question of whether any outsider can ever be legitimately elected again if the candidate must

Actress Kristy Swanson -- who became famous for her role as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" -- is one of the most vocal and popular MAGA stars out there. Every day, she takes to Twitter to defend President Trump and take on his most ardent critics -- especially those living in Hollywood. Fellow actress Alyssa Milano is, politically, the exact opposite of Swanson: she truly hates Trump. Day after day, Milano shares tweets and videos in which she accuses Trump of the vilest possible crimes and vices. Where Swanson is beloved by the right, Milano is the left's Hollywood darling.

Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday it’s possible the FBI acted in “bad faith,” disputing one of the principal conclusions reached in a recently released report from the Justice Department’s inspector general. In an interview with NBC News, Mr. Barr said he disagreed with Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s finding that the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign was justified. “Here, I felt this was very flimsy,” Mr. Barr said. “It think you step back here and you say, ‘What was this all based on,’ it’s not sufficient.” “There was never has been any evidence of collusion and this campaign and the president’s administration has been dominated

“I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Inigo Montoya The Department of Justice Inspector General’s (IG) report into the FBI lying to the FISA Court to get warrants to spy on the Trump campaign is 433 pages. It took AG Bill Barr one paragraph to translate what all of it means in the real world. Oh, and don’t pick it up because you might burn yourself. "The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken.

Four people are dead, including the assailant, after a shooting at a U.S. Navy base in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday. According to anonymous officials and Gov. Ron DeSantis, the suspect was a Saudi Arabian national in the U.S. for flight school. That sounds familiar... Nineteen of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Arabian nationals, and most came to the U.S. for flight training. Three hijacker-pilots, Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, and Ziad Jarrah flew to south Florida for fight training about a year before the horrific September 11, 2001 attacks. Sean Davis, co-founder of the Federalist, noted the eerie similarity. "Just spitballing here, but maybe it’s time

Willie Nelson is turning his back on the one thing, besides his music, that he’s been passionate about for decades: smoking pot. [Tweets] The 86-year-old singer told KSAT-TV that he’s putting down the bong: “I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful. I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever. And that almost killed me. I don’t smoke anymore - take better care of myself.” Nelson canceled a tour in August because of “breathing problems,” and it’s those problems that prompted him to quit smoking weed.

One of the recurring themes in Andy McCarthy's book Ball of Collusion, describing the events surrounding Robert Mueller's fruitless effort to determine if Russia helped Donald Trump win the 2016 election is the distinction between two kinds of knowledge that comprise narratives: what we can believe and what we can prove. As an experienced former prosecutor McCarthy carefully distinguishes between estimation (the province of intelligence analysis) and proof which is (or should be) the currency of the justice system. Jointly they make up conventional wisdom. As Martin Gurri's The Revolt of the Public noted

To achieve that goal, the former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire business and media mogul on Friday unveiled a plan that would shutter all 251 remaining coal plants across the country by 2030 and replace them all with clean energy. He would also phase out gas-fired power plants. At a speech in Alexandria, Va., Bloomberg warned that "we have to start working as hard as we can building a 100 percent clean energy economy because

When it comes to the unlawful surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the most important question is, what did President Obama know and when did he know it? If we are to believe the testimony in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FISA abuse, Obama didn’t know anything about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Neither did his attorney general, her deputy, or anyone in the White House. At least not that they can recall – an expression used over 200 times in the report. Yet against this we have the Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Lisa Page to her paramour Peter Strzok saying “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”

BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- Salvador Castillo was yearning for tranquility when he became enchanted by a one-acre homestead close -- but not too close -- to the city, a place where cows graze beneath whispering mesquite trees on the property's edge. Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago. Their neighbors, the Carrascos and Trevinos, got them too.
