They don’t talk much about Joel Myrick

On October 1, 1997 at Pearl High School in Pearl, MS, 16-year-old Luke Woodham killed two students and injured seven others. Before the shooting at began, Woodham stabbed his mother to death in their home as she was about to begin her morning jog. The shootings shocked the country. It was said many times, if this can happen in Pearl, it can happen anywhere. Unfortunately, over the years, this statement has proven to be true.

The shootings at Pearl High School was the first of the modern-day rash of school shootings.

But it could have been much worse. But for the actions of vice-principal Joel Myrick, and the grace of God, it would have been.

The moment Joel Myrick heard shots, he ran to his pickup truck, removed his Colt .45 from its case, removed ammo from another case, loaded his gun and went looking for the killer. He could have confronted Woodham much sooner, but for the fact that Federal law prohibits anyone but a police officer from having a gun in or near a school. “I’ve always kept a gun in the truck just in case something like this ever happened,” said Myrick.

By the time he confronted the Woodham, 2 students were murdered, and 7 others were wounded. Woodham was trying to make his get-away to the nearby Middle School to continue the carnage. Woodham’s lever-action 30-30 is an effective deer rifle. But it takes time to chamber each round, point, aim and fire. Precious time. Time that Joel Myrick could have used to stop the shootings, but for gun laws.

Myrick foiled Woodham’s plan. He saw the killer fleeing and positioned himself. Woodham, seeing the gun pointed at his head, crashed the car. Myrick approached the killer and confronted him. “Here was this monster killing kids in my school, and the minute I put a gun to his head he was a kid again,” Myrick said.

Myrick’s actions stopped the shootings and saved lives. But the MSM doesn’t talk much about him, do they? President Obama says it’s time to have some gun control talk. Well, OK. Let’s just remember to talk about Joel Myrick.

12-12-12. T Minus 9 days and counting till TEOTWAWKI

I’m watching the 12-12-12 benefit concertRoger Daltry of The Who looks to be about 100 years old.  But the music still rocks – without a doubt.

Nine days till  <<THE END>>.  Here’s what the hedgehog sees as he peeks above the rim of his burrow:

Over a half  million family farms threatened by Obama’s new death tax.

Large “Ball of Light” crashes in Sweden.

Teotwawki: T Minus 10 days

(((Polar shift to occur in 10 days)))

The polar shift theory encompasses everything we’ve ever considered to be a disaster — all rolled into one mega disaster, as predicted by the Mayans.  Earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, drastic temperature changes, you name it.  When north rapidly becomes south, and south rapidly becomes north, everything changes. 

So, there you have it.  December 21, 2012, ten days left, and counting.

Other disaster scenarios, partial scenarios, and just plain old bad stuff:

Congratulations To Johnny Manziel~Heisman Trophy Winner

manziel
There is and will be much written about the redshirt freshman phenom, the first freshman to win the award.

Here is an excellent article from Fox News on the young man.

Having won the prestigious award and the permanent inclusion into a small club, his life is forever changed. Unknown to most just a few months ago, that has ended and the remainder of his college career will be compared to this magical season.

Now the speculation begins, as to how he will conduct himself on and off the field, and if the Heisman will effect his performance in the upcoming Cotton Bowl. Considering how distracting all the attention, interviews, travel and ego stroking that occurs leading up to the bowl game, it is not surprising how often the Heisman winner is on the losing team.

Back on Earth, it is important to note that Manziel is, when all is said and done, a twenty year old human. He has had at least one scrape with the law this year, leading to an arrest. I haven’t looked into what the disposition of those charges are/were.

As an OU fan, I certainly hope the Sooners take care of business and defeat the Aggies on 4 Jan 13 at Jerry’s Death Star. If the current Heisman winner parties too hardy and isn’t in peak form for the game, all the better. The kid can play.
