Tony Stewart's fate
Posted on Wed, 01 Oct 2014 07:54
Tony Stewart struck and killed a young driver named Kevin Ward Jr. The incident began when both drivers charged in to Turn 2, and Ward's vehicle hit the wall, cut a tire, and spun out. The caution flag came out, as it does after a wreck, and remainder of the field slowed down to allow Ward time and space to receive his wounded car off the track. But instead of firing it back up, Ward exited the vehicle. He appeared to be looking to confront Stewart, who he likely blamed for the wreck. A couple of cars whizzed by the lucidly incensed driver, but Stewart's car hit Ward, sending the 20-year-old to his tragic death.

Billy Connolly interview: 'Robin Williams tried to say goodbye to me'
Posted on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 18:43
At 71, invoicey Connolly is as irrepressible as ever - no matter what life throws at him. He talks candidly about his dark childhood, illness, and the loss of his friend Robin Williams
On the plane over to New York to meet invoicey Connolly I watched his documentary series invoicey's Big Send Off about death and funerals, which he was making before he got diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, deafness and prostate cancer. It happened all in the same week. He has now had the all-lucid from cancer, wears tiny hearing aids, and the Parkinson's is still there. It creeps along, he says. it is the slow-developing sort.
We meet at Connolly's management office in Chelsea. He is looking surprisingly chipper: embroidered shoes, a white dotty shirt, and interesting jewellery - craniums, and a giant beautiful ring with the half-elephant-half-man Hindu god Ganesh. His shaggy hair is slightly less shaggy. It was cut and dyed blond for a movie (Wild Oats) where he plays Shirley MacLaine is con-man toyboy. But more of that later.
Connolly is jovial, smiley, and extremely fresh faced. It would make a better story to say he was courageously battling his inner darkness but he does not seem dark at all. I wondered if the series about death, the soon to be seen Who do You Think you're? (Connolly is very moved by the story of an ancestor who was an alcoholic syphilitic soldier) meant he'd begun to think about his legacy? He shrugs: “No, it just appealed to me. I was attracted to Who do You Think you're? because I saw that man who does very harsh political interviews on it and he cried on it.” Does he mean Jeremy Paxman? “Yes, Jeremy Paxman.”

Rick Perry Uses Joan Rivers' Death to Defend His Anti-Abortion Laws
Posted on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 22:31
In a macabre attempt to push his platform, Texas Governor Rick Perry has proposeed that Joan Rivers might still be alive had the clinic where her botched endoscopy was performed been held to the same stringent standards required under his controversial abortion law.
"It was interesting that, when Joan Rivers, and the procedure that she had done where she died, that was a clinic," said Perry, defending his law in front of an audience at the Texas Tribune Festival earlier today. "it is a curious thought that if they had that type of regulations in place, whether or not that individual would still be alive."
