July 11th Smorgasbord!
--My youngest son didn't walk until he was 2 1/2, so seeing the above video is beyond precious. I was thinking that an adult might be discouraged about having a prosthetic leg, but this boy is too excited about learning to walk to care. We should all be inspired by his can-do attitude, I know I am.
--Unlikely Friendship Between Toddler and WWII Vet Will Melt Your Heart--This story does exactly what the title says, it melts your heart. A toddler and a World War II Vet that have a special friendship. The sad part is, they will soon be torn apart.
--This house looks nice on the inside and the outside, but most people won't want to live there. Why? It was once a serial killer's torture chamber. Who is the landlady? The serial killer's mother, nice...
--Todd Akin single-handedly lost Missouri's chance to gain back the U.S. Senate seat in 2012. Everything was in the Republicans favor, yet, he opens his mouth and throws it all away. And to prove he is a bigger idiot, he didn't step aside, so the Republicans could salvage the seat.
So, guess what? He has written a book about what an idiot he is and blames everyone but himself. And who writes the intro for him? None other than my other least favorite Republican, Mike Huckabee! Guess who won't ever be reading this book?
