What got lost during his trial was what a terrible person this woman was. She dumped her kids on a man who wasn't even their father and left for Hollywood. She ran cons through the mail with old men and convinced them to send her money. She was giving the new baby medicine to stop her dirtying her diaper. No, she didn't deserve to be murdered but she lived a dicey life and eventually it caught up to her. Honestly, I don't think he did it.

Blake was also in 'Our Gang' (The Little Rascals) for those old enough to remember. I guess that does not get a mention these days due to political correctness...

I liked him in Baretta. It was a down and dirty cop show with super colorful characters but the good guys always won. Mom once mentioned that I was (at 15) adopting his mannerisms and accent. Had to pay more attention to myself after that. Imitating TV characters was pretty cheesy even then.

He was a good actor who gave a great performance in "In Cold Blood." Frequent guest on Johnny Carson. Never cared for him. One of my favorite scenes from movies is when Bogart slaps him in "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre."

A father from New Hampshire who had been banned from setting foot on the grounds of an elementary school showed up at a board meeting dressed as Julius Caesar to argue how the school district was 'facilitating gender confusion' because the school employs an male art teacher who wears women's clothes. Guglielmo's claims are based around allowing art teacher, Silas Allard to continue to teach as the school. The teacher, who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, typically dresses in women's clothing during the school day. He also alleged that he Allard had been posting inappropriate material on social media.

It’s ’23 skidoo. New York City cops are resigning at a record-breaking pace this year as the NYPD’s alarming exodus continues, according to new data obtained by The Post. “The NYPD staffing emergency is approaching the point of no return,” said Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch. The shocking stats show 239 officers tapped out in January and February, a 36% spike from the 176 who fled in the same period last year and a disturbing 117% jump from the 110 in 2021, NYPD pension data show. That’s the highest number of resignations for the first two months of a year since 250 members quit in 2007

On Thursday, the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government held a hearing on the bombshell Twitter Files and the implication of the government colluding with Big Tech to censor free speech. The lively hearing featured two of the Twitter Files authors, Michael Shellenberger and Matt Taibbi. And throughout, Democrats tried to demean their work and lambaste the free press as their reporting has reflected poorly on their friends in the federal bureaucracy. Of course, the major broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC were not interested and ignored the story on their flagship Thursday evening and Friday morning newscasts. Instead, they spend 44 minutes and seven seconds

EXCLUSIVE — The State Department has missed a deadline set by Rep. James Comer (R-KY) to provide documents related to the agency's funding of the Global Disinformation Index, a group blacklisting conservative media outlets. Comer, chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, demanded on Feb. 23 that the department turn over records by March 9 related to GDI, which received $665,000 combined between 2020 and 2021 from the State Department-backed Global Engagement Center and National Endowment for Democracy, a nonprofit group. However, the State Department missed the deadline and has been in touch with Comer, according to the committee.

On Thursday, the Republican National Committee and the Vermont Republican Party announced they are suing the city of Winooski, Vermont for allowing noncitizens to vote in school board elections and on education budget referendums. Two concerned Winooski residents are also a part of the lawsuit. The lawsuit comes after the Vermont Supreme Court ruled against the RNC’s previous lawsuit asking judges to find noncitizen voting unconstitutional. While the court argued the Vermont Constitution did not categorically bar noncitizen residents from voting in municipal elections, it did find that votes with statewide implications would require United States citizenship, an RNC spokeswoman told The Federalist.

A Silicon Valley Bank branch in Manhattan today called the cops on tech investors trying to pull their cash out as a run on the bank forced regulators to seize its assets. Police were called after 'about a dozen' financiers, including former Lyft executive Dor Levi, showed up outside the building on Park Avenue as investors scrambled to get their money out amid the biggest collapse since the Great Recession. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) seized SVB's assets today after depositors - mostly tech workers and start-up firms - triggered a run on the bank following the shock announcement of a $1.8bn loss.

Kamala Harris's verbal utterances are bizarre, repetitive, and often not completed. (snip) Aphasics may do this to hide the fact that they can literally not hold onto the meaning of their narrative, to carry it to completion. So, they make up an ending to the story and then perhaps flip into a semantically weird ending. Harris often simply repeats her first sentence. This is not planned for a rational purpose, and she often solves her semantic confusion by bursting out in stereotypical laughter, with gestures, to encourage her listeners to think she just did a funny.

A Democratic delegate proposed a law in Maryland that would bar anyone under 25 years of age from being charged with felony murder. Delegate Charlotte Crutchfield, a Democrat, made the proposition through the Youth Accountability and Safety Act, House Bill 1180, local news outlet WBFF reported. A defendant in Maryland can be charged with felony murder if the person commits a murder during a felony crime, such as robbery. Crutchfield and supporters of the bill say that the brain is not fully developed before age 25, so issuing so harsh a sentence is unfair.
