Nobody’s Sure How or Why an American Plane Ended Up in Iran

On Tuesday, a New York Times reporter in Tehran spotted an American plane at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, an extremely unique sight given the harsh sanctions imposed on the country by the United States and other Western nations. For an American plane to enter Iran legally, a number of hoops would need to be jumped through. The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control needs to give approval for an American aircraft to travel to Iran—they gave a “no comment” to the Times. Complicating things further, the jet’s engines are made by General Electric, meaning that the Commerce Department would also have to sign off on allowing American-made equipment to enter the isolated country.

You’re a cop, a cow is loose on Route 30; What do you do?

For starters: “DO NOT chase animals. DO NOT use sirens. Limit use of emergency lights.”

Shirley Sanservino‘s insight:

This newsy article is rather humorous, if you have never encountered a loose cow, or bull on the sidewalk, downtown.

 

Perhaps this young bull is looking for the petting zoo that is advertised on the sign or is thirsty for a coke

Sturla said alleged act has no relation to aide’s work in his office. I first heard (Thursday) about these serious allegations against an employee in my office, Vanessa Rodriguez. After looking into the matter further, I decided to terminate her employment earlier today,” Sturla said in a statement today.

 

According to court documents, Rodriguez, 32, of Lancaster, was charged with insurance fraud and false reports for the January incident.

Rodriguez reported a burglary at her Fremont Street home Jan. 4, saying someone had forced the back kitchen door open, and showing police damage to the door. She also provided police with a list of stolen items, totaling about $5,000, according to a criminal complaint.

A woman who lived with Rodriguez at the time told police that there was no burglary and that Rodriguez was trying to get money from her insurance company.

Shirley Sanservino‘s insight:

It should not be the responsibility of parents to fight for fair treatment and then fight for justice.  Medical malpractice due to irresponsible doctors should have a standard of recourse for victims.  No amount of money will ease the pain – however it should be a deterrent to sloppy health care.

Jessie Geyer – Antioch, CA

A few days before Halloween 7-year-old Jessie Geyer began to feel lousy. She had a high fever and severe leg pain. It was bad enough feeling sick, but the second grade was worried she may miss out on trick or treating.

Shirley Sanservino‘s insight:

Cover up at its best.  At least the coroner was persuaded to tell the truth.

 

"The county coroner’s office, for example, wanted to list Jessie’s death as having an "undetermined cause." The Geyers wouldn’t settle for that. They believe "there are a lot of other people like us…who just gave up," as Mark says.
