Rock County Jail Would-Be Escapee Nathan Middleton Is No James Bond

Another reason to read a newspaper.  Another reason to smirk at a stupid criminal.  And for the record I hate to even besmirch James Bond with the placement of his name with that of Nathan Middleton in the same sentence….but having said all that, here goes.

Last night on the local television news it was reported that Nathan Middleton who is in jail for the burning of a woman in a fire pit after he hooked up her with for sex plotted a break from the Rock County Jail.  The TV reports however did not mention how this all would unfold.

The Wisconsin State Journal had some details.

Rock County Sheriff Bob Spoden said the plans included finding a friend or relative to get a car, weapon and clothes for him and to crash the car through an outside window of the jail to get to him.

“It was pretty James Bond-ish, Bob Spoden said”

It was not disclosed if the car had torpedoes under the hood or if rotors would sprout from the roof once the inmate was inside so to whisk him off to–where exactly?

Stoughton?  Mexico City?  A rental with Edward Snowden?

This plot is one of the more bizarre that has come to light in a while, and makes one wonder as the sheriff does about what this all means about Middleton’s self-proclaimed ‘innocence’.

“People who are innocent don’t feel the need to escape from jail and seek individuals to help him,” Spoden said. “Those are the actions of a dangerous man.”

Middleton might just get comfortable in prison clothes and a small locked cell as that is where it seems he will be spending a great part of his life.

Jerusalem Has Heaviest Snowstorm In 50 Years…..But There Is No Climate Change!

What a sight this is.  James had word through a  friend that Jerusalem has few homes with a heating system–based on never needing one–but are now facing some colder than normal temperatures.

The heaviest December snowfall in 50 years, according to the Israeli weather service, fell Thursday morning on Jerusalem, which was briefly cut off from the rest of the country as access roads were closed.

It was also winter white on the summits of the occupied territory of the West Bank, from Jenin to Ramallah to Hebron.

Let us also know there are countless refugees from Syria that are suffering from this storm, due to the actions of Syria’s government.

Peter Frampton To Perform At Grand Ole Opry Tonight

UPDATE…Video of the performance at the Grand Ole Opry.

I am not in the loop on this one–at all.

This week while listening to Sirius Radio it was mentioned that Peter Frampton was to be on the Grand Ole Opry this week.  When looking over the performers who will appear tonight–as I always do on a Saturday–I noticed his name in the 8:00-8:30 P.M. portion.

Ricky Skaggs
Jean Shepard
Peter Frampton
Opry Square Dancers

I just am not sure what he plans to perform, and not sure what he is doing at the Opry given what I know of his music.  I can not reconcile Frampton and the Opry dancers on the same stage.

This is how I recall him from high school when he was certainly eye-appealing to almost everyone.

Tonight will be interesting….as his guitar playing seems to be his calling card for the famed stage.

Saturday Song (Extra) Soweto Gospel Choir Madiba Tribute “Asimbonanga”–We Have Not Seen Him

Hat Tip To James

Simply uplifting.  So richly sung and felt.

A South African chain store has laid on one of the most touching tributes to Nelson Mandela we’ve seen in the past week – and it was in the form of a flash mob.

Woolworths teamed up with the Soweto Gospel Choir, who posed as shoppers and store workers at the Parkview store in Johannesburg.

The choir then began an “impromtu” rendition of Asimbonanga [We have not seen him], singing:
Asimbonanga [we have not seen him] Asimbonang’ uMandela thina [we have not seen Mandela] Laph’ekhona [in the place where he is] Laph’ehleli khona [in the place where he is kept]
Asimbonanga Asimbonang ‘umfowethu thina [we have not seen our brother] Laph’ekhona [in the place where he is] Laph’wafela khona [in the place where he died] Sithi: Hey, wena [We say: hey, you] Hey, wena nawe [Hey, you and you] Siyofika nini la’ siyakhona [when will we arrive at our destination]

The song was written during Mandela’s incarceration as a call for his freedom.
