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.

More Hot Weather Cooking the Country as Tri-State Prepares to be Re-heated Like a Leftover

Can we go ahead and mark it down? 2011 is one of the worst weather years I can ever remember. Record winter cold, tornadoes, floods, and now this heat! I might have included last week's extraordinary and national-headline-making heat reading in my recent post about the worst storms I've ever experienced, except for the fact that a heat wave doesn't qualify. But it does qualify when the categories are "discomfort" and "dangerous."
