Kentucky Marine Awarded Medal of Honor [VIDEO]

I had a grandfather and a great-uncle who served in World War II. Friends of my dad's served in Korea. (Dad was unable to do so because of flat feet, but, boy he wanted to.) I had a couple of college professors who were Vietnam vets. And there were some from my high school graduating class who served in Desert Storm. Outside of my parents, I hold no one in higher regard than the men and women who serve our country in the Armed Forces.

September 11th, 2001 (2,998 Lost Their Lives) Gone But Never Forgotten [VIDEO]

Hard to believe the 10th anniversary of that very tragic day is approaching, it brings back so many painful memories for all of us and those disturbing images of the planes crashing into the World Trade Center still run through my mind just as fresh today as they did 10 years ago. I did find some great videos & pictures I wanted to share, some are disturbing but some wonderful tributes have been made. God Bless the U.S.A.

Dave Spencer Remembers Where He Was When the World Stopped Turning [VIDEO]

September 11th, 2001 was the second day of my vacation. I was sleeping in. The phone rang. My frantic mother was on the other end of the line asking, “Are you awake?” Now, my mother is rarely—if ever—frantic about anything. So, her tone was immediately alarming. But then she said, “We’re under attack!” It took me a moment to process that statement. “Under attack?!?” “Yes,” she continued,”New York City has been attacked!”

Serious Questions About The Sugarland Stage Collapse

I was at The Boiler Room Saturday night . . . waiting patiently for Jaclyn to take the stage . . . when news broke about Sugarland's stage collapsing at the Indiana State Fair.  It didn't take long at all for video footage to make its way to You Tube, so we were passing our smartphones around so just about everyone in the crowd could see what happened.  The footage was startling.  I have probably been to a hundred concerts or so in my time and have emceed many of them.  I have walked on stages, just like that one, dozens of times.  In fact, I've stood on stages, just like that one, and have watched storms blow in and send crowds running for cover.  I think that's why I have been so fascinated with this recent tragedy.  I just can't quit watching the video clips and reading eyewitness accounts of what happened.  But, because I have been so obsessed with this tragedy at the Indiana State Fair, I have noticed some serious problems with the stories about what really happened.   The more people talk, the more information that comes to light, it is growing more and more evident that somebody, somewhere, dropped the ball.
