KINSTON RECORDS 10TH HOMICIDE OF 2011

A 54-year-old man lost his life Saturday night in what is believed to be another gang killing in east Kinston. Norris Cobb was the 10th victim of homicide in our city in 2011.

My take: We had had a brief respite from the killings for a month or so, but crime seems to have picked back up in the past couple of weeks. It’s time for the KDPS to get back out there on point — these kinds of senseless murders are going to literally kill Kinston.

NANCY GRACE HAS A WARDROBE MALFUNCTION

Everybody’s Most Hated Quasi-newswoman — Headline News’ Nancy Grace — jiggled the top of herself out of her dress on “Dancing With The Stars” last night.

My take: I’m not going to stoop to linking to a photo of the “incident” – although there are a million out there and they’re hardly PG-13.

But I’ll say this: it’s made me not want to have lunch today. So, there’s that.

GODLESS COWBOYS DEFEAT GOD-FEARING REDSKINS

Wrapping up a perfectly terrible sports weekend for yours truly, my Washington Redskins lost to Richard Clark’s Dallas Cowboys last night, 18-16. It ended a weekend in which my Cavahoos somehow, someway lost to the pride of Conference USA Southern Miss, 30-24.

My take: Geez. Go ahead, Cowboy Nation (include Will the Thrill) — take your shots now, ’cause when you bring your sorry team to D.C., you’re walking away with a loss.

Hopefully.
