From Creepy Rooms to Masterpieces, 11 Discoveries Homeowners Made This Year! Tabs, Mon., Dec. 13, 2021
Happy St. Lucy's Feast Day to all who celebrate!
I, a Catholic just like Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, have had three miracles in my life. One was when Richard Ramirez, the Night Stalker, was Night Stalkin around Southern California (very soon, some Mexican American dudes would catch him and BEAT FUCK OUT OF HIM, and all Southern California would be all YAY MEXICAN AMERICAN DUDES, as is right and proper) and I was so scared and terrified and as I prayed and prayed and prayed, my mom burst into my room and said REBECCA! I FOUND THE KEY TO THE FRONT DOOR!
So we could lock it, because we didn't, because we are hippies.
Another was the time I was at Mass the week after my brother died, and I said, I wonder if there is a St. Lucy, and when I got home and looked it up, in a book as that was what we looked things up in at the time, St. Lucy's feast day was in fact that very day, and she was the patron saint of having your eyes on a plate, JUST LIKE ME.
I forget what the third one was. Time for some tabs!
"Isn't December an unusual time for tornadoes?" you vaguely asked yourself at the news that 70 (yesterday morning?) people in Kentucky had died of Christmas tornadoes. Not anymore.
This is Nelson Gonzalez from Guayama Puerto Rico. He was a supervisor on duty Friday night when a tornado obliterated his candle factory in Mayfield, KY. Some of his employees call him a hero for helping to get them out alive. You\u2019ll hear from him & them tomorrow on @CBSMorningspic.twitter.com/Ej4jdFGxXp— David Begnaud (@David Begnaud) 1639344095
Tucker's deal doesn't make any damned sense unless he is running for president, says Eric Alterman at TAP. Ah, but Eric Alterman at TAP seems to think it's weird that Tucker is racist as shit, when Wonkette has had year-end posts on This Year in Tucker Carlson Being Racist as Shit for a fuckin' decade.
