 While ghouls, goblins and kids in Ebola costumes gather their riches, could gas companies, politicians and religious fanatics be plotting to gather even bigger “heavenly” rewards?
 Maybe, but hey! Joy of all joys! Gas prices have plummeted! Yet shouldn’t this raise as many questions as the higher prices?
 Look, I get enjoying lower gas prices. As the Bush II era progressed my business started to enter the danger zone due to rising gas prices.

I’ve heard, and never really believed, all the lame excuses, the most current and frequent being “speculators.”

Teacher suspended for telling a student bucket list item: Killing all black people

A new awful, racist person has carved out a small niche of Internet fame. Hooray! Cynthia Ramsey, a math teacher (and head of the math department) at Camden County High School in North Carolina, was recently discussing items on her bucket list with a student, when she revealed her rotten inner core.

The student’s mother, Kimberly Ashcraft, said on local television, “She conveyed to me that Mrs. Ramsey had indicated that if she only had 10 days to live that she would kill all black people.”

“I was completely shocked,” Ashcraft continued. “I asked her again, ‘Are you sure that was what you heard?’ I could not have imagined a teacher saying that.”
