Quote II

“I didn’t know what it was about, but I knew the police wanted to get something from me. I was afraid I was going to get charged with something, I don’t know what.”Zachary McCoy


Quote III

Tell me again. Why are you needed?

The University of California will not be “fully” re-opened this fall, according to a report in The California Aggie, with the system chancellor stating that the school will be basing its decisions on pandemic mitigation efforts such as tracking down people who may have the disease and quarantining them.

The university system was closed down by mid-March as the pandemic began to spread in that state and across the United States. Like schools across the country, the University of California has been debating whether it will re-open in the fall or continue with distance and virtual education.

Rumor has it that Baltimore Oriole fans are pretty damn good at social distancing.

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball owners gave the go-ahead Monday to making a proposal to the players’ union that could lead to the coronavirus-delayed season starting around the Fourth of July weekend in ballparks without fans, a plan that envisioned expanding the designated hitter to the National League for 2020.

Spring training could start in early to mid-June, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the plan were not announced.

MLB officials are slated to make a presentation to the union on Tuesday. An agreement with the players’ association is needed, and talks are expected to be difficult — especially over a proposal for a revenue split that would be unprecedented for baseball. Players withstood a 7 1/2-month strike in 1994-95 to fight off such a plan.

“If you do anything that resembles a cap, that smells like a cap, you’ve given too much,” said Dave Stewart, a four-time 20-game winner who is now an agent and spent two years as Arizona’s general manager.

When your pussy is on fire. You're a Genius Award Winner.

An Ohio woman called 911 late Saturday evening to report that her “pussy was on fire” and that she needed someone from the fire department to “put it out with their hose,” according to an arrest report.

After placing that emergency call, Katrina Morgan, 50, hung up the phone. When a police dispatcher called her back, Morgan reiterated that she required first responders to “come put her pussy out because it is on fire.”

Seen above, Morgan “appeared highly intoxicated” when cops arrived at her friend's home in Port Clinton, a city on Lake Erie. Morgan smelled of booze and was “having trouble walking, was slurring her speech,” police noted.

No pussies of any type were found ablaze inside the residence.
