My mom fell flat on her back in a nearby, Indian-run casino this past Thursday. She had merely walked off the carpeted area onto a tiled section of floor and her feet went right out from under her. She didn’t do any serious damage to herself, but she did suffer a mild concussion and received a sizable goose egg on the back of her head. She’s also suffered a fair amount of pain. My folks aren’t the suing types, still, they are making sure the casino doesn’t try to sweep this under the carpet. I guess we shall see.

Have a look for yourself here.
Speaking of YouTube videos that are far more deserving of seven million views than “Ghost Crying,” have you heard of Captain Disillusion? Captain Disillusion is a skeptic who examines viral videos of questionable integrity and offers real world explanations for the outlandish claims. I mentioned three of his videos of which I am very fond.

I talked about how I reacted when I heard the news. It’s exceedingly unfortunate that Pete Townshend’s reputation will be forever stained by his act of stupidity.
The Guardian ran an interview with Pete Townshend conducted about one year after his arrest. You can read it here.
Music heard on the show…
