No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

Memorial Day at the Wisconsin Memorial Park

by @ 18:08. Filed under Miscellaneous.

I spent a few hours at the Wisconsin Memorial park this morning. I watched the VFW members, color guards, a band and 1,600 beautiful American Flags blowing in the morning breeze. I heard the 21 gun salute, the National Anthem and of course… Taps. I watched the remembrance ceremony and a reading from an American combat veteran, he calls it, A Comrade. I would like to share some of the sounds and sights with you.

Note: Since I can’t seem to embed this video here, please view it here.

If anyone was there and caught the full name of Sgt. Pepper, I would like to hear from you. The poem he wrote and shared with us was very good.

Update: Think we got the video working. Thanks for sharing!

Virginia Tech Shooter sends video to NBC News

by @ 17:19. Filed under Miscellaneous.

Breaking NewsWow, after Cho Seung-Hui shot the first two people, but before he continued his murder spree, he took time to make a video and send it to NBC News.

Gunman sent package to NBC News
Sometime after he killed two people in a Virginia university dormitory but before he slaughtered 30 more in a classroom building Monday morning, Cho Seung-Hui mailed NBC News a rambling communication and videos about his grievances, the network said Wednesday.

They haven’t released the video, but you can read their coverage at MSNBC. It sounds like there will be an update on the NBC Nightly News at 5:30 (CT).

Putting an end to Cruising in Milwaukee

by @ 13:52. Filed under Miscellaneous.

Milwaukee residents need to follow up on this if we are going to allow our cops to fight Cruisers that invade our streets every summer. In the past week, there were two Cruising incidents, both resulted in shooting, three people were wounded.

The following quote is from a letter by Alderman Bob Donovan. Excerpt from Sykes Writes:

Caught your comments this morning on cruising. I couldn’t agree more. I just wanted to clarify some of the legalities"┬Žlast year I met with the City Attorney, the police and our legislative drafting people. We strengthened legislation to increase the ability to tow vehicles involved in cruising.

Additionally, the Common Council, in a vote of 14-1 also passed a resolution to lobby the State for legislation to strengthen our abilities even more. That was over a year ago – and to date, the Mayor’s administration has done nothing with it. They haven’t even introduced legislation, much less begun the lobbying process. Very disappointing that our Mayor, who maintains that public safety is his number one concern, is not directing his lobbyists to push for better State legislation when it comes to cruising.

If we are going to end cruising, we need to pressure our representatives on the state level to change the law needed to confiscate the vehicles.

Thanks for the keys dad!

I just want to thank Steve for trusting me with the keys to the blog, I will do my best to make you regret the decision ;-)

For those of you that don’t know me, I live on Milwaukee’s North Side, and because I live in an area with an increasing crime problem, my blogging focuses heavily on issues of crime in the city that I love. However, I do branch out into other areas as well.
