This is something I could get use to..this is from the balcony of the hotel.

fashion your seat belts, its going to be a bumpy ride.....to jail

Sometimes, you want to tell someone that they can take this job and shove it.  But, before the words come out of your mouth, you realize the ramifications of taking that action.  You curse them quietly and then keep it moving.

Meet Steven Slater.  He should have been in Eminem’s video for Guilty Conscience

A JetBlue flight attendant got into an argument with a passenger on a jetliner arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport Monday, then grabbed a beer from the galley, deployed an emergency exit slide and fled the plane, authorities said.

And though he could be seen smiling as authorities led him away from his nearby home in the Belle Harbor section of Queens, Steven Slater’s acquaintances and his apparent profile on a social networking site indicated that he has been dealing with some stressful events in his life.

Now, this is the difference in reading the MSN story and reading the NY Daily News.  Here is the first part of how they report  their story.

A JetBlue flight attendant blew his top, grabbed some beer and bolted out an emergency slide at Kennedy Airport Monday – then headed home to have sex with his boyfriend.

Now, why that information is necessary, I am not sure, but it does get you thinking about their readership and how they are doing.  MSN continues…

Slater was awaiting arraignment Tuesday in the New York City borough of Queens on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing. He remained in custody overnight.

By Monday night, several Facebook pages had been set up in tribute to Slater, who is facing charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing, with many users of the social networking site expressing support for him for walking off the job. One such page had more than 5,000 fans early Tuesday.

Twitter users also showed support, with declarations such as “Steven Slater is totally my new hero” and “Steven Slater for SNL host!”

Slater was working on JetBlue Flight 1052 from Pittsburgh when he got into an argument with the passenger, who was pulling down baggage from an overhead bin, the Port Authority said.

The luggage apparently hit Slater in the head and he asked for an apology, but the passenger refused, the agency said.

As the plane was landing, Slater got on the public-address system and cursed at the passenger, the Port Authority said.

He then grabbed at least one beer, activated the slide, slid down and went to his car, it said. Port Authority police were notified about 25 minutes later.

If you are going to go out, then go out on top and Slater did…

Phil Catelinet, a passenger on the flight, said on the TODAY show that Slater ” was smiling — he was happy he had done this. He was happy he was done with his job at JetBlue.”

“I think it’s funny that he could quit his job that way … [but] I don’t think he thought this through.”

‘One day at a time’
A MySpace profile appearing to belong to Slater notes that: “Beating alcoholism and substance abuse ‘one day at a time’ has opened up new worlds of opportunity for me, and I am so thankful to those who have guided me along the path to successful living, and given me new wings to fly. See you above the clouds. …”

So much for sobriety…here is drinking to you Steven Slater!

F you stupid passenger!

Slater’s former roommate, John Rochelle, told The New York Times that Slater was rarely home, and often traveled to Thousand Oaks, Calif., to care for his ailing mother.

A neighbor of Slater’s mother told the newspaper that he had also cared for his father, who died of Lou Gehrig’s disease.

“It could be the pressure of his mother’s illness, because that’s not the type of behavior or conduct that Steve exhibits,” neighbor Ron Franz said. “He’s a very conscientious, responsible individual.”

A woman who answered a phone at a previous residence listed for Slater in Thousand Oaks, Calif., identified herself as his mother but said she wasn’t speaking to the media.

The district attorney told NBC News that Slater had not yet been arraigned, but that was likely to happen at a Tuesday morning court session.

JetBlue Airways Corp. said in a statement that it was working with the Federal Aviation Administration and Port Authority police to investigate the matter.

It said the safety of its customers and crew members was never at risk. JetBlue would not say how long Slater had been employed by the company.

A National Transportation Safety Board official said the incident was a result of “a little too much cabin pressure.”

The Associated Press and NBC News contributed to this report.

Damn Ronin,

look at your girl….

Law enforcement sources tell us the Seaside Heights PD busted Snooki moments ago for disorderly conduct. The details of that conduct are unclear.

We’re told Snooki — real name Nicole Polizzi — is currently in police custody.

Earlier in the day, Snooki was partying on the beach with a beer bong … only she was filling it up with Coca-Cola.  We’re told she was also seen at a local bar taking “body shots.”

wow...and what redeeming features are here?

Why is this chick making a bunch of money?  More important, why should we care?

Ole girl got some money and then it went to her head (and her gut)  The one thing that might have been attractive is lost.  Her grill was not much to look at and the big frames make her look like an old grandmother.

Looks like MTV bought into a some fake gold, fugazi as the guidettes say…

Get your prep walk down girl...

Here is another great action shot of her falling all over the place.

Ronin, what did you see in this trainwreck?

This might be the only thing that she is good for…

I bet she can fit the whole thing in her mouth...Just dont bite it...

Here is some music to ride out to Snooki…

You can't get it started that early (or late) and then expect to get to work in one piece. Plus it looks like she has a hospital gown on.

There have been many times that my students have made me think about drinking, but it has only been a thought.  Tonya Neff was taking it to the extreme.  Teaching is a difficult profession.  While it may be hard, you just can’t go as far as she did.

THERMAL, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California school teacher has been arrested for allegedly teaching while drunk.

Toro Canyon Middle School teacher Tonya Neff was taken to the Indio jail Tuesday afternoon and booked for investigation of felony child endangerment.

Administrators at Thermal’s Toro Canyon Middle School told the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department that the 47-year-old teacher was apparently intoxicated on campus.

The standard teachers attempt to strive for.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Tapp says Neff had taken prescription drugs and alcohol and an alcoholic beverage was found inside a container.

Coachella Valley school district Superintendent Ricardo Medina says there was never a threat to Neff’s seventh-grade students. Neff has been placed on leave.

She had a little too much to drink...Plus, where are her pants? She might have a little more to worry about than her inability to hold her alcohol..

What a combo!  Pills and booze make Homer something, something, something.  In this economic climate, how can you really think that this was a good move?  Plus, you will have to find a new job, since your teaching license is going to be pulled.  That must have been a great drink.  I wonder if I can get the recipe?

To make her feel better, she is not the only teacher getting caught up…

No, I think that they would have sprung for it anyway as a protest movement...

But, at least he left him some TV to watch…maybe Girls Gone Wild?

Police: Dad visits strip club, leaves boy in truck

Police say they’ve arrested an Indiana truck driver who went drinking at a strip club after leaving his 5-year-old son in his semitrailer watching cartoons.

The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS —Police say they’ve arrested an Indiana truck driver who went drinking at a strip club after leaving his 5-year-old son in his semitrailer watching cartoons.

An Indianapolis police report says 39-year-old Donald Crawford was arrested early Tuesday on child neglect and public intoxication charges after reporting his truck stolen and son missing. Police said he forgot where he parked.

The boy was found watching a television inside the truck’s cab. Police said the keys were in the ignition and the doors were unlocked in a high-crime area of Indianapolis.

The man, from nearby Franklin, was taken to the Marion County jail. Jail records showed he wasn’t being held early Thursday, and repeated calls to jail offices seeking details rang unanswered.

This place is Too Old approved....The Sapphire in Las Vegas is the strip club of choice

What a dumbass!  The child hopefully is still with DPS or they find the mother.  That has to take the cake for stupidity.  At least he didn’t leave his guns and/or drugs in the cab as well.

During happier times....

Whatever the case may be, the best thing that he did is to not say a freaking word to anybody, especially the cops.  What Miranda versus Arizona has taught is that you have the right to remain silent and that anything you say can be used against you in a court of law.

too bad it doesn't work with parents too

I am going to put some quotes together from the the Times Online that illustrate my point.

Captain Mark Welch, chief of public affairs for Florida Highway Patrol, told The Times today: “In Florida, you are not compelled to speak to police officers concerning traffic crashes. There is a requirement to furnish your driver’s license, insurance and vehicle registration, and that he has done. He has complied with what the state requires him to do.”

At that point, you don’t have to say anything else.  The fact that people want to know more is irrelevant to Tiger and his handlers.  When you open your mouth, things can be used against you and can lead you into more trouble.  Had Plaxico kept his trap shut, then he wouldn’t be uptown served hard time right now.  But, the fact that it’s Tiger means that people want to know and think that they have a right to know.  Now, the police are trying to get in his business.  The simple fact that he ISN’T speaking to them is causing them to get nosy.  It is just a Catch-22.

But that is why it pays to say as little as possible. The more you say, the easier it is to pin you down and hold you to your words or statements

State troopers probing Tiger Woods’ mysterious car crash were today said to be applying for a search warrant allowing them to seize his hospital records.

Florida Highway Patrol wants to establish whether the facial injuries for which Mr Woods was treated at Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Florida, last Friday were consistent with his wife’s version of events, or whether they may have been inflicted during a domestic incident.

That the police are trying to go backdoor to get his medical record should worry some people out there, as it worries me.  Why is this some time delay that you didn’t work on at the scene?  Aren’t officers trained to notice those things?  Simply put, this was a one car accident.  The only thing that we need to know is that he hit a tree and a fire hydrant.  The fact that he is not saying more is that there is nothing more.

The one thing to remember is that the main sources for this celebrity drama is TMZ.com and the National Enquirer.  While they occasionally get one right, they get a lot more wrong….

Don’t people know that it’s wrong to speak ill of the dead?

By Kate Howard, The Tennessean

A property management company has filed a claim against former Titan Steve McNair’s estate for back rent on a West End apartment he began leasing in October.

McNair was the co-signer for a condo on Parthenon Avenue near Centennial Park, with his cousin, Raymond White, as the primary renter. But once the 12-month lease was finalized, the electricity was turned on in the name of a young woman, according to public records from Nashville Electric Service.

Mail and utility bills for the condo had been going to 26-year-old Adrianne Hobbs. Gianikas Property Management has asked McNair’s estate for $1,750 in rent, late fees and pet damages for the condo, which was vacated last month.

Rent was late in June and was never paid in July, according to court filings.

McNair was shot and killed July 4 in a condo off Second Avenue. Police have ruled that McNair was murdered by 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, who then killed herself. The two had been dating, and police said Kazemi was distraught over catching McNair, who was married, with another woman.

Side piece Sahel Kazemi, who murdered McNair and took her own life...obviously during happier times...

Side piece Sahel Kazemi, who murdered McNair and took her own life...obviously during happier times...

Steve, Steve, Steve…if other people learn from this horrible tragedy, then while we would have lost a great leader (and not so great husband) but gained something from his death.  DON’T BUY YOUR SIDE PIECES ANYTHING!  This is where it started (that and keeping it in his pants) to go sideways for him.  had he just been clear that this was some late-night smash time, then she would not have gotten so clingy.  It is a lot easier to separate from that, then it is to make a commitment to someone by buying them things…

She told friends she had seen another woman leave the condo off Second Avenue and followed her home. That woman was not Hobbs, Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said.

“The person who I am aware of, who believes that she was followed by (Kazemi’s) Escalade, is a different individual and lives elsewhere,” Aaron said.

This sounds like it could have gotten worse.  If Sahel “Shooter” Kazemi KNEW OF this other person, I am glad that she didn’t shoot her up too.  Suicide after killing someone else is such the cowards way out…

A former employee at the property management company says McNair had been coming to the office each month and paying the $1,000-a-month rent personally for the Parthenon Avenue residence.

The electricity in Hobbs’ name was disconnected Aug. 7, according to records from the Nashville Electric Service. It is unclear how she knew McNair.

Before we go jumping to conclusions, what if the woman was the side piece of the cousin (or even better yet, what if she was the girlfriend?)  yeah, she would have come forward, but maybe all the notoriety scared her off.  Now, they have your name too…

“As far as we knew, McNair gave (White) the keys, and we thought (White) moved in,” said Stephanie Burch-McMahan, who managed the apartments until earlier this year. “It wasn’t until a couple months later, we discovered there’s no male person living in the apartment.”

Phone numbers for White have been disconnected, and he could not be reached for comment. A call to his attorney was not returned Tuesday.

‘We let it go’

Someone saw a woman walking a puppy in the pet-free condo, and the manager said she sent a letter to White. There appeared to be only women’s items in the apartment, Burch-McMahan said, and other residents of the apartment complex told management they’d seen only McNair and a blonde woman coming and going.

“If there had not been for (McNair’s) celebrity status, we would have called and said, ‘Who is this person living here?’ ” she said. “We knew if we confronted him about it, it would create a lot of awkwardness, so we let it go.”

That is what being famous gets you…a lot less questions.  Steve and others need to know that handling your business out in the open will get you caught up, even if some people are willing to hide it.  All these people thought that they were bulletproof….

Burch-McMahan, a fan of McNair, said she was at first disheartened at the circumstances of McNair’s death, but she considers him a kind and generous person and doesn’t want to judge him now.

“Maybe losing an icon like Steve means we are being asked to re-evaluate what we will accept and expect from relationships, and be conscious of the pain and destructiveness that infidelity causes,” she said.

Sound a lot like Joey, doesn’t it?

The smile seems forced, but i bet he loves his job!

Hobbs could not be reached Tuesday. A reporter spoke with her in July at the West End condo, but she said she didn’t know McNair and she had no comment.

Her friend Valerie Skelton identified herself as White’s girlfriend and said she herself lived in the condo. She said she had moved in a few months before McNair’s death. Skelton also did not return a phone call or e-mail Tuesday.

Steve, please tell me (through a dream or however the dead contact the living) that you were not smashing either of these two women.  I am hoping that it really was your cousin, his girl and her friend…

Gary Rubenstein, the attorney representing Gianikas Property Management, said mail had been coming in Hobbs’ name, and Skelton applied to be added to the lease nine days after McNair’s death. Rubenstein wasn’t sure who was living there.

Because White was the primary lessee, the company intends to pursue payment from him. But they still filed a claim against McNair’s estate because there is only a limited amount of time to do so, Rubenstein said.

Sharks smell blood in the water.  You are going after the dead for your money?  Let the man rest.

He said he has been in touch with White’s attorney and any payment they get from White will be deducted from their claim against McNair.

Rose Palermo, who represents Mechelle McNair in the probate case, said she has no information about the claim and can’t comment. Steve McNair did not leave a will.

American Express also has filed a claim against his estate for $44,000, and Magee General Hospital in Mississippi has filed for about $287.

Crime case officially isn’t closed

Though Metro investigators ruled the deaths of McNair and Kazemi a murder-suicide on July 8, they have not officially closed the case or made the case file public. It’s unlikely they will do so until the conclusion of the federal case against the man who sold Kazemi the gun, Aaron said.

Adrian Gilliam Jr. has been charged with being a felon in possession of a handgun after the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms traced the gun that killed the pair back to him. He told Metro police he sold Kazemi the gun for $100.

“The Metro Police Department’s investigation is parallel with the investigation by the federal authorities,” Aaron said. “In fact our officers have been very much involved in the federal case as well as the murder-suicide investigation. As far as the very thick case file, I suspect that is going to be not made public until the federal matter is resolved.”

I still feel sorry for the poor sap who thought he was doing some woman a favor by getting here a gun for protection and not he is caught up too…
