Exactly six months ago, a tormented milk truck driver shot 10 young Amish children at their one-room schoolhouse in Nickle Mines, Pennsylvania, killing five of them and then killing himself. On Monday, a new school building will open close to the site of the rampage.

This article includes music, photographs and an extremely touching memorial slideshow.

According to documents obtained by Fox News, the Broward County Medical Examiner has confirmed that none of the 11 drugs found in Anna Nicole’s hotel room actually were prescribed to her. Documents obtained from the office of Dr. Joshua Perper show that of the 11 drugs, eight were prescribed to her companion, Howard K. Stern.

This is an article about the ghastly film of Anna Nicole as an alien in the shape of a human bombshell, taking on an evil intergalactic terrorist. It’s Smith doing a send-up of an airhead celeb and her place in the Hollywood machine, a role she milked on the unscripted “Anna Nicole Show.”

One might say: An imitation of life imitating an imitation of life. Trailer video is included.

New Hope: Remembering the Amish Tragedy

The Amish Tragedy

Exactly six months after a tormented milk truck driver shot 10 young Amish schoolchildren in Nickle Mines, Pennsylvania, killing five of them and then killing himself, a new school building will open on Monday close to the site of the rampage.  The one-room schoolhouse will come with a new name, the New Hope Amish School.  The new school, which has more sophisticated locks and a location that can be reached only by a private drive, can be seen from the site of the old West Nickel Mines Amish School, which was torn down last October 12th.

Four of the five wounded girls have been able to return to school, but the fifth remains in “a comatose-type condition.”  The 6-year-old girl is fed by a feeding tube and is unable to communicate.  Charles Roberts, apparently tormented by an unconfirmed memory of having molested relatives 20 years earlier and by the 1997 death of his own infant daughter, killed himself after the shootings.  Amish families attended his burial service.  The killer’s widow, Marie, and their three children have since moved from their home in the village of Georgetown, which is about a mile away from where the shooting occurred, to another community within Lancaster County.

The new school, partially made of brick, was funded by donations to the accountability committee, donations which were made directly to the school board and by in-kind contributions.

Most Prescriptions for Drugs Killing Anna Were Written to Howard K. Stern

TMZ is reporting today that Fox News has obtained documents indicating that the Broward County Medical Examiner confirmed that none of the 11 drugs that were found in Anna Nicole Smith’s hotel room actually were prescribed to her.  Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren obtained documents from Dr. Joshua Perper’s office which show that of the 11 drugs, eight were prescribed to Howard K. Stern, two were prescribed to Alex Katz and one was prescribed to Anna’s personal psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich.

Perhaps most interesting, the chloral hydrate that was the major cause of Anna’s death (and was prescribed to Stern) was in a duffel bag in the hotel room.  The Fox News reporter wondered, since Anna was too weak to even get out of bed to go to the bathroom, how did she get out of bed to rummage through the duffle bag and get the chloral hydrate?  Van Susteren pressed Dr. Perper for an answer; the doctor replied only that he he had asked Stern, Eroshevich and the bodyguard if they had given her the drugs and they all said that they hadn’t.

Perper also acknowledged that it was a bad idea for Anna to take sedatives in the morning, given that she was already too weak to get out of bed.  Perper said that even if someone else gave her the drugs, “It’s not wise for sure, but it’s not homicide.”

Dalek the Exterminator

Oh my…an example of the ingenious ways that the curious English invent to busy themselves in their free time! Shiggel has posted this note on her English blog, Inclined to Tilt at Windmills:

“My super-secret crochet project has come to fruition. I wanted to complete this a few weeks ago but I’m a busy mom.

Still, what could be better than a crocheted stuffed Dalek, the greatest nemesis of Doctor Who? You know it was totally worth waiting for this.

This is my own prototype, freeformed in Red Heart gray and black, with a button stitched to one appendage as his ‘plunger’ manipulator arm. I hope to make another one with improvements and write down the pattern:

Close-up. Can you feel the cuddly evil?

The Dalek recruits a can of Barbasol: “You would make a good Dalek!”

And yes, I am full of my own cleverness today.”

Oh yes, you certainly are.
