An awesome outer space video. A do-or-die game for the Jets. And don’t mess with a kid’s Halloween candy

**Just so you know, expect a lengthy and detailed review of the awesome “Muppets” movie in Monday’s blog…

So even though the space shuttle program is being terminated, we can still get cool launch videos. Here is the Mars Science Laboratory Launch from Saturday at Cape Canaveral.

Still something that makes your jaw drop.

**Big game for my Jets today. I’m still pretty mad at them for that awful performance against Denver last week, but as always I still care and will probably watch today against Buffalo. Simply put, at 5-5 the Jets cannot lose more than one more game the rest of the season, if they hope to get to the playoffs. And losing to Buffalo would pretty much end the season. I have a feeling my boys will bounce back, but if they don’t, I’m going to be in an awfully bad mood Monday.

**So I’m a few weeks late on hearing about this story, but it frightened me greatly. A 10-year-old girl in Florida named Miesha Bryant was arrested and charged with a felony for striking her fifth-grade teacher, then threatening to kill the teacher, Kelly Sanchez.

Sanchez had confiscated Miesha’s Halloween candy bag until the end of the day, since Miesha had been playing with it. But Miesha was having none of it, and threw a serious temper tantrum, then punched Sanchez in the stomach.

Scary stuff for a 10-year-old to have that kind of rage in her.

  1. I had that kind of rage as a kid but I didn’t dream, not in my wildest nightmares, of acting on them. That’s modeled at home. Then again, my parents weren’t the product of generations of racial discrimination and poverty.
