Today is October 14. Below are some of the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room.
1. Video of woman swearing at flight crew, throwing water bottle on plane goes viral
The 2-minute video was posted to Reddit, with the poster writing it took place on their wife’s flight from ATL to JFK. In the clip, the woman can be seen aggressively responding to the news she has to leave, asking if it was because the dog was on her lap and appearing to not understand why it was an issue.
In the video, the other passengers watch the altercation unfold as the woman informs the staff members attempting to remove her, “We are about to fight then.”
When she still refuses to disembark, she begins to get visibly riled up and aggressive in the clip, despite the fact the staff member told her she would be receiving a refund.
MY TAKE: Why are we seeing these incidents so often? I think its because people are too entitled.
2. Troy Aikman Apologizes For Asking Men To Play Real Football Again
Daily Caller— Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and current ESPN color commentator Troy Aikman expressed regret Thursday for comments he made during the Chiefs-Raiders game on “Monday Night Football.”
“My comments were dumb, just shouldn’t have made them,” Aikman said during a radio appearance Thursday, according to The New York Post. “Just dumb remarks on my part.”
During the first half of Monday nights game, Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones appeared to commit a strip sack against Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, until referees flagged Jones for a roughing the passer penalty after he landed atop Carr.
“I hope that the competition committee looks at this during the set of meetings, and we take the dresses off,” Aikman said following the play, according to FoxNews.
MY TAKE: Maybe this was a bad choice of words, but I don’t disagree with the sentiment.
3. Nearly 8% of people living in San Francisco and Seattle plan to MOVE – the highest number of any other city in the US – as remote workers flee to the suburbs and Dem-led cities deal with skyrocketing crime and homelessness
Daily Mail— Residents in San Francisco and Seattle are more likely to move to a different city as they experience high crime rate and homelessness, according to a new survey.
For the first time ever, the American Housing Survey asked residents in the nation’s 15 major cities if they planned on moving, with many Dem-led cities leading the way in the looming exodus.
About 7.6 percent of those in San Francisco said they wanted to move to a different city, with Seattle coming in second at 7.2 percent.
Dallas, Washington, and Detroit rounded out the top 5.
MY TAKE: I was recently in San Francisco. Didn’t stay more than a couple of hours. What a wreck!
4. Cuba Gooding Jr. Will Serve No Prison Time After Plea in Sex Abuse Case
NY Times—The actor Cuba Gooding Jr. pleaded guilty to a single count of harassment on Thursday, ending a criminal case that began when one report of sex abuse prompted additional accusations from women across the country.
Mr. Gooding, 54, who won an Academy Award in 1997 for his portrayal of a brash football player in “Jerry Maguire,” was charged in 2019 with groping or forcibly kissing three women, one of many prominent men whose behavior was exposed by the #MeToo movement. He was sentenced in State Supreme Court in Manhattan to time served.
Prosecutors had sought permission from the court to present trial testimony from 19 women who came forward after Mr. Gooding was initially charged in Manhattan. Although their accounts were not part of the criminal case, the district attorney’s office wanted them to provide evidence that Mr. Gooding’s behavior was part of a pattern.
Although Mr. Gooding no longer faces criminal charges in Manhattan, two civil suits accusing him of abuse are active, one in State Supreme Court and the other in Federal District Court.
MY TAKE: Hollywood is filled with corrupt children who think they can do whatever they want.
5. Indiana teacher arrested after admitting to making ‘kill list’ targeting students, staff members
Fox News— An Indiana teacher was arrested on Thursday after allegedly telling a fifth-grader that she made a “kill list” targeting students and staff members, police said.
St. Stanislaus School teacher, Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres, reportedly mentioned the plans to a fifth-grade student around noon on Wednesday. East Chicago police officers were dispatched to the Catholic school later that afternoon.
“A 5th grade student told his/her Counselor that their 5th grade teacher made comments to him/her about killing herself, students, and staff at St. Stanislaus School,” East Chicago Police Department said on Facebook.
“The teacher further told the student that she has a list and that he/she was on the bottom of that list,” the statement added.
MY TAKE: Sick!
