Something else important happened today but you won't read about it in the Times because they focus on the trivial. I stepped outside to get the morning paper in my skivvies as I usually do and I nearly froze my butt cheeks off! I mean, it was so cold that my butt got numb. When I got back inside, I reached down to feel them with both hands but I couldn't tell if they were still attached or not. So I called out to my wife to come have a look.In today's edition of El Paso Times Online:
“El Paso police officials confirmed Tuesday they are looking into allegations that state representative candidate Lyda Ness-Garcia was assaulted.
The police Special Investigations Group on Monday opened an investigation into the allegations made by Ness-Garcia that she was assaulted at her home, a police spokesman said. The Special Investigations Group handles cases involving law-enforcement officers, city employees and other public servants.
Ness-Garcia, who is in a heated contest in the Democratic primary for the District 77 seat in the Texas House of Representatives, issued a news release Monday saying that she was assaulted.
"Today, two unknown assailants physically attacked me at my home and threatened my family," Ness-Garcia said in a statement. "I thank god that my family and I are safe, and I am deeply appreciative of the swift and thorough response…”
Lyda Ness-Garcia is running in the State Democrat primary against Democrat Rep. Marisa Marquez.
When the Chicago-style thuggery takes over the country, it spreads to every corner of the nation.
"SJ," she said, "If this is your way of getting out of going butt up tonight, it's not going to work. Sven, the hung Swedish masseur is coming over to drill you after he rubs and humps me. So get it together, Mayhew."
I now am at a loss as to what to do. I'm thinking of a warm sitzbath to try and thaw out my buns, but anyway it's damned cold out there today and the wind will blow right up your backdoor if you're not careful.
