News to Ponder - Pt I

I have much on my alleged mind and that is the main reason for the following post.  But the ulterior motive is that I can no longer stand to see the photo of that incredibly ugly person on the post below this one.  Aside from her looks being repulsive she is a terrible human being (making an assumption there) and I don't wish to scare away any readers.
There are too many stories to place on one post and although I won't make them long I will separate them into two posts.
You may follow up on any tidbit I place herewith by "googling" for more or where I add a link to the actual story if you so desire.  I just couldn't believe what I was reading in the news today and all the injustice finally screamed to be let out to breath.  So take a deep breath and read on.
PART I:
Grave robbers struck in East Farmingdale stealing the corpse of an Italian lady dead since 1998.  Seriously?  What, there aren't enough brain dead people around so you have to disturb a grave?  Sick bastards!
NY Governor Paterson has been found to have received tickets to a World Series game without reporting it or paying for them.  OH MY GOD! Quick, get out the pitchforks!  I realize no elected official should accept gifts from potential recipients of  favors later but is this the issue to stop the presses on?  Do we have to waste so much time and effort and money on this one?  Do we not have more pressing problems perhaps?  Such as:
Lindsay Lohan and mom will be getting a radio show on 105.3 FM.  This proves that if you are totally untalented, ugly, stupid, and a low-life trash who continually acts poorly you can strike it rich!  So mark your calendars for some time later this year to carry a radio while eating your big mac and strolling the aisles at Wal*Mart.
Indians refuse to collect the lawful and legal tax on cigarettes sold to non-tribal buyers.  The amount lost to NYS amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars.  A perfect solution would be to charge the tribes the total amount of sales tax that would be collected on all the cigarettes they buy then offering them a rebate of that sales tax upon delivery of audited proof of sales to tribal members.  A bit cumbersome but the only way to keep the peace without having to smoke anything!
The LIRR states that the cost of the recent track fire will be incredibly high.  Does the railroad not have insurance against this sort of accident?  Are we to expect to see the ticket prices go up due to their inept handling of the rails? It is bad enough that their workers are among the highest paid - AFTER they retire but do we have to foot the bill every time they do something wrong?
American Airlines decries a $24M fine for flying unsafe planes and not telling anyone about it.  They cancelled hundreds of flights while they kept the lid on the problem.  In trying to get out of paying the fine spokesman Tim Smith said, "These events happened more than two years ago..."  Well there you have it if you can stall and obfuscate long enough you can get away with anything.  (It seems as though American Air is taking a page out of the Republican's playbook!)

Grave robbers - Ewww. Sick
Paterson took tix? Call the National Guard. Who gives a damn?
Lohan? Ditto!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Indians don't want to collect taxws? They should lose rights underr the treaties signed so long ago. I like the point about collecting taxes first - send it in tot he papers.
LIRR & AAmeircan Air are of the same ilk - Screw the customer as much as possible without getting caught or paying for it. They've done their jobs well.
Keep it up.
