Quote :
"False rumor puts Triangle Muslims on edge
Lorenzo Perez, Staff Writer

RALEIGH - It apparently began with a Raleigh couple's decision to catch a matinee showing of the film "Atonement" last month.
It became an e-mail warning of a possible terrorist attack, forwarded among friends and friends of friends. Even after Raleigh police investigated and ruled out the tale of cloaked Muslim women mysteriously fanning out across a multiplex with briefcases and text-message phones, it continues to multiply.

At least 20 forwarded versions of the "Atonement" e-mail already have bounced across the country to the inbox of Snopes.com, a popular Web site devoted to debunking urban legends and examining weird news items. And the traffic is only picking up, said Barbara Mikkelson, who operates the Snopes site with her husband, David, from their Los Angeles-area home.

"It's definitely one of the growing rumors we've been seeing," she said Wednesday. "It's always like a snowball rolling down the hill. It starts small, then very quickly it starts building up because you forward it to a friend, and then they forward it to their friends, and then it just keeps going from there."

The e-mail says that shortly after the movie trailers ended, someone dressed "as a Muslim woman" head to toe in black with only the eyes visible slipped into the same row as the couple at a North Hills Stadium 14 theater. The cloaked figure kept their attention as she clutched a briefcase and received and sent a series of text messages.

An hour into the movie, the concerned couple left to find a theater manager, the e-mail continues, only to be told by an usher that a group in similar cloaks and head coverings had earlier fanned across the theater's different screening rooms.

Was this a rehearsal for a 9/11-style terrorist act, the couple wondered.

"We may never know but I have been sufficiently thrown into high alert," the author of the e-mail writes. "Do what you want with this information, but I for one will not be racing to the movie theater anytime soon. ... perhaps we all need to have a phone number for Homeland Security contact in our cell phones!"

Raleigh Police Department employees were among those who received a version of the message on their personal e-mail accounts, and the department investigated the supposed incident. Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said investigators concluded the incident did not happen.

"It was determined in the end that there had been a single movie-goer, a female in Middle Eastern attire," Sughrue said. "We're not faulting anybody for anything that happened. We ran it down, and we were more than happy to run it down and report that there was not a security threat."

The spreading reach of the e-mail has dismayed some advocates for local Muslims. Khalilah Sabra, director of the Raleigh chapter of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation, said she found the reported reaction of the couple in the e-mail odd at first and then insulting.

The balance of fear

"As much as that movie attendee might have been afraid, the woman dressed in all black was probably more afraid of what people would think of her and how she would be perceived," Sabra said.

Regal Entertainment Group, the theater chain that owns the North Hills cinema, said it was aware of the e-mail. Dick Westerling, a Regal spokesman, said the chain looked into the concern and determined that "we have no credible evidence to suggest that any risk exists that should concern our patrons and staff." Ticket sales have not suffered in the wake of the e-mail messages, he added.

But the e-mail continues to circulate.

Raleigh resident Judy Allen first heard about the e-mail Sunday night from a friend at a Super Bowl party. After her friend forwarded her the message, Allen said she forwarded it again to another dozen people, including a friend whom she knew was planning to take her daughter to see the Hannah Montana concert movie at North Hills.

"It rang true," said Allen, who passed the message along primarily to members of her Country Club Hills neighborhood's community watch program. "We just wanted to do our part to protect the community. It's important to keep your eyes open."

Chuck Poe, a retired computer programmer, said his wife forwarded him the e-mail Tuesday. Poe went online to check out whether it had been vetted yet by Snopes.com. Informed that Raleigh police had ruled out the incident described in the e-mail, Poe said he sympathizes with Muslims and the extra scrutiny they feel.

"When people talk about terrorism or Islamic people, people get a little jumpy. I know I do," Poe said. "I hate it that people get so jumpy, yet you want to be vigilant.""

"Macclesfield, N.C. — A 13-year-old boy who was tied to a tree two nights this week died Thursday, and his father and stepmother have been charged with murder, authorities said Friday.

Brice Brian McMillan, 41, and Sandra Elizabeth McMillan, 36, both of 1110 Felton Farm Road in Macclesfield, have been charged with first-degree murder and felony child abuse. They were being held Friday in the Edgecombe County Detention Center without bond.

Deputies were called to the Felton Farm Road residence Thursday afternoon to assist paramedics with an unresponsive teen. The boy's father told deputies he had tied the teen to a tree outside the home Tuesday night because he was being disobedient and other disciplinary actions had failed.

The father said he untied the boy Wednesday morning and allowed him back into the house, but he was tied to the tree a second time that night when he started acting up again. The boy remained tied up until his stepmother found him unconscious at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, authorities said.

The teen, whose name wasn't released, was taken to Heritage Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A 7-year-old and a 9-year-old who live in the McMillan home have been placed in the custody of the Department of Social Services, authorities said.

The city is also Fortune Small Business magazine’s current No. 20 place to “live and launch.”"

"CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A school bus driver who thought her bus was empty was startled so badly when a sleeping student woke up that she swerved and slammed into a house in Charlotte.

The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday the 15-year-old girl had fallen asleep and missed her drop-off at the Northwest School of the Arts. The driver was in a neighborhood on her way to pick up students for another bus route when she saw the teenager wake up.

The driver lost control, hit a curb and plowed into the house.

The 81-year-old woman inside the nearly destroyed house, the driver and the student weren't seriously injured.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools officials said the driver, whose name hasn't been released, has been suspended with pay after failing to confirm all students had gotten off the bus.

"a deer was running around in the shopping center we were in"

at the vet clinic where i work, one day about a year ago, a person off the street ran in and joyfully said they had just seen a deer, and that it had even gone into and left the foodlion nearby. about 2 minutes later someone came in and said a deer had crashed through the window of the Wingman restaurant nearby (which was closed at the time for remodeling or something).

one of our vet techs crawled through the glass to get to the dear and access the situation, we called all the appropriate authorities & a wildlife rehabilitation person whose warning was don't let whatever group first responds overdose the dear on tranquilizers (something about how it would keep it from being able to heal, or destroy its kidney, or something bad would happen), but by that time the cops & others had shown up & over tranqed it, so they asked one of our vets to put it down.

In more recent NC national news, we were just mentioned in this new CNN story.

"In North Carolina, which Bush won by 12 points in the last presidential election, the poll indicates that 47 percent of registered voters back Obama, just 1 point behind McCain."


I think Obama choosing Raleigh as the launch point for his economics tour (as well as returning to NC in general & Raleigh specifically) has probably helped his numbers now that the economy is even more sour. It would be great to see NC in national news for being a swing state with moderate values, rather than a hog beating state.

"NEWTON, N.C. — A 3-week-old baby boy found living in an active methamphetamine lab in North Carolina has been taken into the custody of social services.

Newton Police Chief Don Brown told The Observer-News-Enterprise that more than 50 pounds of toxic methamphetamine ingredients were found in a home in Newton. Brown said it's likely the infant was in areas where the lab was set up.

Brown said the three suspects include the infant's mother. Their names haven't been released.

The Catawba County Department of Social Services has custody of the infant.

Newton Police Capt. Kevin Yarborough said he believed the lab was the first confirmed lab within city limits. Police found the lab Tuesday after getting a tip.

First of all this is a little OT...

Quote :
" * Workers dragged injured pigs out of the facility by their snouts, ears, and legs before killing them with a captive-bolt gun. Some of the pigs had "KILL" spray-painted on their backs."


As far as having "kill" spray painted on their backs, since when can pigs read? Is this supposed to make me feel worse for them? It just makes me feel like PETA is trying to blow this out of proportion. As far as the dragging goes, pigs are big heavy animals, this is probably industry standard and perfectly normal because if they just killed them with the bolt gun (want) where they were, it would take a huge amount of labor to get the pig to the location where it was to be sliced up. Just because pigs squeal really loudly doesn't necessarily mean they are in pain.

Quote :
" * A farm supervisor admitted that he violently beat pigs, saying of one that he "cut the sh** out of his God damn nose with a f***ing gate rod." "


Yeah, that's fucked up. Ignorant bastard needs to have his nose broke.

Quote :
" * Workers cut off piglets' tails and pulled out piglets' testicles—without using any pain relief—as the baby animals screamed in pain in front of mother pigs."


If you want to give pain relief to every pig they do this to, you're not going to get cheap pork but what I really don't like about this is that they added " as the baby animals screamed in pain in front of mother pigs" just to sensationalize it. If you don't like this part, do you say how horrible it is when someone gets their dogs ears/tails cropped?

Quote :
" * Two workers and a supervisor hit and jabbed pigs—sometimes in their faces and near their ears—with 2-foot-long metal gate rods on 31 of the 41 days that PETA's investigator worked."


That sucks if they were doing it just for shits and giggles but 31/41 days makes me think it was just them trying to corral the pigs into another area. Again, this looks like peta trying to blow up something simple into torture. "hit and jabbed" doesn't meant that they hurt them or tortured them.

Quote :
"* A worker gouged the eyes of four pigs with his fingers. Pigs suffered from ailments including cysts, sores, and a uterine prolapse for which they were denied treatment."


Sounds like that dude needs to have his eyes gouged out.

The part in general that annoys me about this is peta taking what are probably perfectly normal animal treatment practices which are not hurtful to animals, phrasing them in a way that creates sympathy and lumping them in with real animal cruelty. They're taking things out of context and not telling the whole story like Michael Moore. More basically, they are lying.

YAY NC! WTF is wrong with people?

Quote :
"CULLOWHEE, N.C. – Police at Western Carolina University and wildlife officials were investigating the discovery early Monday of a dead bear cub draped with a pair of Barack Obama campaign signs.

Leila Tvedt, associate vice chancellor for public relations, said Monday night that maintenance workers found the 75-pound bear cub shot to death in front of the school's administration building at the entrance to campus. The Obama yard signs were stapled together and placed over the bear's head, Tvedt said.

The bear had been shot in the head, Tvedt said.

"Western Carolina University deplores the inappropriate behavior that has led to this troubling incident," Tvedt said. "We cannot speculate on the motives of the people involved nor who those people might be. Campus police are cooperating fully with authorities to investigate this matter."

University police called in state Wildlife Resources officials to remove the body and help in the investigation.

Bear season is under way in western North Carolina."

THAT SEEMS REALLY STUPID CONSIDERING THE ATTITUDES MOST OF YOU HAVE ABOUT DRUGS. PERSONALLY, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT, BUT I DOUBT IT'S LEGAL FOR SOME FARMER TO BE BUYING UP TONS OF PAINKILLERS AND USING THEM IN ANIMALS.

PLUS, THEN THERE'S THE ISSUE OF FDA APPROVAL OF THE ANIMAL PRODUCTS. IF YOU INJECT THE PIGS WITH DRUGS THEN YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE ANIMAL FOR MEAT OR MILK PRODUCTION.

Figures-- the one day I decide not to go the library, and I miss an opportunity to be more appalled than usual about something.

This really comes as no surprise. Though NCSU has a lot going for it, it really does have the unfortunate habit of going forth into the twilight wastes that are parts of North Carolina and dragging back the hideous denizens of those blighted realms.

It's always the same-- you're going along, minding your own buisness, and the general air of academia is suddenly dispersed by a feeling of dread. Looking up from your notebook full of scrawled notes on sixteenth century playwrights, you lock eyes with one of them. They scowl, as they sense that you are not descended from the landed English gentry of the early colonial period.

They always drive Fords, for some reason. F150's for the men, Rangers for the ladies-- always a little beat up. Always with the stickers-- BASS, that strange deer head, the red NCSU sticker that affirms to the world that someone thought them worthy of college. They are not rednecks-- rednecks are people. They are the forgotten sons of the wood.

They love wearing realtree camo jackets. They never carry any books. They smell of wild places, BO, and wet dog. When you hear them talk (and they do-- they are not animals, but creatures blessed with a kind of thought, rudimentary though it may be) it's always about football.

Someday I will understand their kind. And on that day, I will know too much."

"AP: Obama adds N.C. victory to White House win

WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama has won North Carolina, adding 15 electoral votes to his wide victory and a symbolic triumph in a state that hadn't voted for a Democrat in more than a generation.

The Associated Press declared Obama the winner Thursday after canvassing counties in North Carolina to determine the number of outstanding provisional ballots.

That survey found there are not enough remaining ballots for Republican candidate John McCain to close a 13,693 vote deficit.

North Carolina's 15 electoral votes brings Obama's total to 364 – nearly 100 more than necessary to win the White House. Missouri is the only state that remains too close to call.

Obama's win in North Carolina was the first for a Democratic presidential candidate since Jimmy Carter won the state in 1976."
