    The “tradgedy” of Keene, NH

    Few people know that I spent much of my childhood growing up in a sleepy town of Keene, NH. My parents were missionaries and the family moved often, but I graduated both high school and later college (after transferring) in Keene. I never considered Keene my home because of the close or small mindedness of many of its citizens. I’m ashamed to say, it hasn’t changed much.

    This past weekend, Keene’s annual Pumpkin Fest, an event that brings thousands of people from across the nation to New Hampshire, was marred in what’s being called a, “tragedy”. Unfortunately riots broke out multiple times over the course of the weekend, directly related to Keene State College students. All of a sudden, friends, family, and their peers have launched verbal attacks against these rioters. My opinion?

    My dear Keene citizens, I’m sorry what happened at the Pumpkin Fest, but honestly, you never did anything stupid (seriously stupid) in your twenties? Perhaps you just didn’t have rampant social media documenting your idiocy. Also, remember the number of ignorant asses that flock to the area during this and like events. What happened this past weekend was bound to happen, no one should be surprised. Something like this should bring people together, not break us down. Learn from this people of Keene, NH — please.

    I&#8217;ve admired Joan River&#8217;s strength and courage to say exactly what&#8217;s on her mind with her talent to turn it into something funny. A rare gift she shared with countless generations all over the world. Ms. Rivers, you&#8217;ll be missed and never forgotten.

    Actor, action star, and former wrestler, Dwayne Johnson confirmed his role in an unnamed DC Comics film as Black Adam! On Facebook he wrote,
"Kneel before his feet or get crushed by his boot.."
 This role has been years in the making. A true honor for me to become my favorite comic anti-hero of all time - BLACK ADAM. 
 Lets have some fun.
