A Tennessee Boy Cries Blood & Some Think That He’s Possessed!

"Sometimes, I can feel it coming up, like a tear. I feel my eyes watering," Calvino Inman says. "Sometimes, it will burn as it comes out."

A 15 yr. old boy has a mysterious condition that has doctors baffled.Calvino Inman cries blood at least three times a day.His mother desperately wants to know why.

Unfortunately,there are some who think they have the answer to what is causing this strange daily occurrence.They think that Calvino is possessed.

Here’s more on this stranger than fiction tale from The Post Chronicle:

“A Tennessee boy has been called possessed and doctors have called his condition a mystery. His name is Calvino Inman and his tears are blood.Many have never heard of Calvino Inman’s bleeding eyes.

The boy, just 15 years old, has baffled doctors with a condition that causes his eyes to bleed at least three times a day.

“Sometimes, I can feel it coming up, like a tear. I feel my eyes watering, sometimes, it will burn as it comes out,” Inman explained, adding that the bleeding can last from just a few short minutes to an hour.

“I’ve been called possessed by almost all of my friends. I guess I’m used to it now. At first, it kind of hurt my feelings.”

According to, The first time Calvino Inman experienced the bleeding, his mother, Tammy Mynatt, called paramedics immediately:

“The scariest thing in my life is when he looked at me and said ‘Mom, am I going to die?’ That right there broke my heart.”

As for the cause, doctors say they’ve never seen anything like it. “They done an MRI, they done a CAT scan, they done it with and without an IV, they’ve done ultra sounds,” Mynatt explained.” Read more here.

If I were Calvino Inman,those tears of blood would have me freaking the hell out!He seems to be handling things quite well,though.Hopefully,the doctors will find out how to stop those bloody tears.

Ireland Mourns The Passing Of Senator Edward Kennedy!

Sen. Edward Kennedy will be remembered as one of the greatest Americans ever.This was a man born of wealth who truly cared about every spectrum of society.Especially those who were less fortunate than him.

But,Edward Kennedy was an Irishman as well.Ireland’s foreign minister stated that the Kennedy family embodied the Irish immigrant story.And Prime Minister Brian Cowen says that Ireland has lost a “true friend.”

Here’s more from The Global Post:

Nowhere outside the United States is the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy being mourned as much as in Ireland, the country from where his ancestors emigrated during the potato famine of the 19th century and to which he helped bring peace in recent years.

President Mary McAleese said he would be remembered as a “hugely important friend to the country during very difficult times,” and Prime Minister Brian Cowen commented that Ireland had lost a true friend who “worked valiantly for the cause of peace on this island.”

The sentiments are not overblown. The Massachusetts senator was for four decades the Irish Government’s staunchest ally on Capitol Hill. He first became involved in Ireland in 1971 when he told the U.S. Senate that, “Ulster is becoming Britain’s Vietnam” and that British troops should be withdrawn.Such statements aroused deep resentment in the British establishment.

When as a reporter in London I asked Lord Hailsham, then-Lord Chancellor, what effect such interventions by Irish Americans like Senator Kennedy would have on British policy on Ireland, he retorted angrily: “Those Roman Catholic bastards, how dare they interfere!”

Kennedy grew uneasy however about being associated with Irish American groups supporting violence to achieve the same goal of a united Ireland. In 1972 he sought out John Hume in Derry for advice.

As leader of the moderate nationalist party, the Social Democratic and Labour Party, in Northern Ireland, Hume was a prominent critic of pro-IRA sentiment among Irish Americans.

The senator was so impressed with the former Derry schoolteacher’s impassioned argument for constitutional reform that from then on he aligned himself with Hume on Irish issues.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

The “Parking Rage Dentist” Gets Three Years Probation!

William Moody

Dr. William Moody sure showed that he was in a horrific mood when the “parking rage” dentist shoved a woman to the ground over a parking space. Gee whiz! Get a grip,dude! If I were a White Plains,NY resident,that would be one dentist that I would steer clear of.

Because Dr. Moody really takes his last name seriously.Instead of living up to the family name,this guy is the walking definition of his surname.Here’s more on this story from

“The “parking rage” dentist who pushed a Buchanan woman to the ground and shoved her brother will serve three years’ probation and can have no contact whatsoever with the siblings, a city judge ruled yesterday.The sentence for Dr. William Moody of Elmsford came after his June conviction of all the charges against him, including misdemeanor assault and contempt, as well as harassment and disorderly conduct violations.

City Judge JoAnn Fria could have sentenced him to a year in jail on each of the two top counts. Prosecutors sought jail time and $3,400 to cover the woman’s medical bills.Moody, 61, was arrested immediately after the Nov. 9, 2007, confrontation, when he became enraged that Luis Infante’s Chevrolet was blocking a parking-lot entrance on Court Street.

Moody honked the horn of his Mercedes-Benz and shouted at Infante before getting out of his car and approaching Infante’s Chevy.Infante testified at the trial that he was waiting for his sister, Yolanda Infante, to drive her to make funeral arrangements for their father, who had died the night before.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Kari Ann Peniche Is Involved In A “McSteamy” Sex Scandal!

Kari_Ann_Peniche.jpg Kari Ann Peniche image by SportSyndicate

Kari Ann Peniche is the hot girl who won the Miss United States Teen pageant,only to lose her crown because of her Playboy pics.Now,she is involved in a “Mcsteamy” sex scandal with hottie Eric Dane of “Grey’s Anatomy” & his beautiful wife,Rebecca Gayheart.

Here’s more from CBS News:

“By now you have likely seen or at least heard about the naked web video of Grey’s Anatomy star Eric “McSteamy” Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former beauty queen Kari Ann Peniche.

Much has been written about Dane and Gayheart, both actors with long television and film resumes. But who exactly is Kari Ann Peniche and how did she wind up in the middle of the latest nudie tape scandal to hit the web?

In 2002, Peniche won the Miss United States Teen pageant and then lost the crown only a short time later for appearing nude in Playboy.But that fall was small compared to the traumas Peniche said she suffered as a child.

In a soon to be published interview with Chaunce Hayden, editor of “Steppin’ Out” magazine which was posted on The Insider Online, Peniche discussed details of her life including several instances of molestation and rape as a young model.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest of this story here.

The Cash For Clunkers Program!

If you haven’t taken part in the “cash for clunkers” program,time is rapidly running out! August 24 is the last day to trade-in your gas guzzler for a new fuel saver! It may not help the poor,but it has provided some stimulation for the economy.But,the dealers who have seen an increase in business are still waiting to be reimbursed by the government for accepting these clunkers.

Here’s more on that from CNN Money:

“Car buyers trading in a vehicle must prove that the vehicle has been titled to them for at least a year and, in most states, that the car has been insured for a year.

Dealers are required to disable and destroy any clunked vehicle so that it cannot be resold.

Dealers have complained that the Transportation Department has been slow to process rebates — slowing their rebate checks and putting them in a financial squeeze. In response, the department recently hired additional personnel.

The program proved wildly popular, running through its initial $1 billion in its first week and leading lawmakers to approve an additional $2 billion in funding on Aug. 7.

Cash for Clunkers has been credited with boosting auto sales, sparking several automakers to re-open closed plants in an effort to refill ravaged inventories. Industry analysts at J.D. Power and Associates forecast that August retail auto sales, a figure that excludes fleet sales to businesses, will pass the 1 million unit mark, thanks largely to the program. That would make it the first million-plus retail sales month in a year.

“Improved consumer confidence and credit availability during the past six months have combined with the  to lift industry sales out of their slumping year-to-date levels, which have been down approximately 35% year-over-year,” said Gary Dilts, senior vice president of global automotive operations at J.D. Power and Associates, in a statement.

Overall auto sales are still expected to be down slightly, mostly due to low inventories hampering fleet sales, J.D. Power said. The company has boosted its overall projected sales for the year due to the success of the program.What remains to be seen now is where things go from here.

“The effectiveness of the ‘cash-for-clunkers’ program will be judged in a number of ways, but a key measure will be how does the automotive market respond to the absence of the ‘clunkers’ incentive to buy now?” said Jack Nerad, editorial director at auto pricing trackers Kelley Blue Book, in a statement.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

The Scottish Justice Secretary Should Never Have Released The Lockerbie Bomber!

Justice was not served here in America when Lynette Squeaky Fromme was released from prison.Even though she served out her entire sentence.Unlike the Lockerbie bomber,”Squeaky” was not released on “compassionate grounds.”

The Scottish Justice Secretary has let Abdelbaset al-Megrahi go home to Libya,where he will be treated as a hero, because he is dying.I’m sorry,but there is nothing justified or “compassionate” about releasing a terrorist who murdered 270 innocent people.Where is the compassion for the victim’s relatives?!!

Here’s more on this disturbing story from The Christian Science Monitor:

“Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill’s granting of “compassionate release” Thursday to Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence agent convicted of murdering 270 people in the 1988 bombing of Pam Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, earned an outraged response from US officials and family members of the victims.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was “deeply disappointed” at the Scottish decision, and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) of New Jersey, whose state lost 30 residents in the attack, said the release is “an outrage … that sends a message out to terrorists.

“Rosemary Wolfe, whose 20-year-old stepdaughter Miriam was murdered in the attack said: “MacAskill forgot the compassion he should have for the families, for the victims. Compassion for a man who’s shown no remorse makes no sense to me.

Of the dead, 189 were Americans. The Scottish authorities say Mr. Megrahi has only a few months to live and should be allowed to die surrounded by his family.But while opposition to the release has been heated in the US, a far different picture emerged today across Britain.

The only man convicted in the worst terrorist attack in British history, which left an indelible mark on tiny Lockerbie where 11 people where killed by falling debris, appears to be receiving a greater degree of sympathy.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Did Not Have To Take That Call,Ya’ll!

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is a Texas congresswoman who has made news for all the wrong reasons as of late.First,she wanted to introduce a bill to the House of Representatives that “recognizes Michael Jackson as a global humanitarian.”

Now, Rep. Jackson Lee is being accused of not recognizing her constituents.During a town hall meeting on health care,a cancer survivor asked Rep Jackson Lee a question that went unanswered.Why is that,you ask? Rep. Jackson Lee was talking to someone on her cell phone!

Since many who are in the political stratosphere are being branded as “elitists“,I do not think it was wise of her to even appear to be ignoring any of her constituents.Rep. Jackson Lee really did not have to take that call,ya’ll!And,now,I think that she realizes that!

Instead of doing interviews that make the situation even worse,Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee should have issued an apology in the form of a written statement. That would have nipped the controversy right in the bud!
