George Zimmerman is headed back to jail.The Orlando Sentinel reports :

"In a shocking turn, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester has revoked George Zimmerman's bond in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman now has 48 hours to turn himself in to authorities.

The decision came after the revelation that Zimmerman and his wife may have conspired to lie about thousands of dollars in donations they'd collected before his bond hearing.

In a new motion, prosecutors accused Zimmerman and his wife of lying to the judge during a bond hearing about money they collected for his defense.

Prosecutors allege Zimmerman's wife knew about the donations her husband had collected through a PayPal account, but didn't mention the money at his bond hearing.

The account ultimately collected about $200,000, his attorney later revealed.

"Defendant has intentionally deceived the court with the assistance of his wife," the motion says. "During the jail phone calls both of them spoke in code to hide what they were doing."

Does a lot for his credibility. Who thinks Zimmerman will plead out?


Well, you never know, it’s still Florida after all.

Did any of you catch John Curley's rambling monologue the night after the Seattle shootings? Frankly i couldn't stand to listen after a few minutes and put a blessed end to his crapola. Unbelievable. Somehow he managed to turn the tragedy into just another selfreferential ego trip- Everything apparently, all, leads back to John, in the end. He started his crow cawing with a series of vignettes from his days back east, in the big tough city. First up, riding a NYC subway in the middle of a stabiing where everyone ignored it. Then he went to a NYC friends story of a body landing behind him on the sidewalk and the indiffeence of the shopkeeper his friend breahtlessy reported the death to. It seemed he was trying to trivialize the tragedy we all had just suffered here. Who knows what the point of this horse's ass'es speech was eventually going to be. I found these self-referencing personal stories from his past back east life, at that time of the entire city's grief, to be offensive. His strange little speech was inappropriate, irrelevant- and even asinine. Mostly asinine. Like Curley.

East Coast N.Y.C-Philly area interlopers in our fair city of Seattle, and environs, like John Curley, should only be given a five- year provisional residency, when they first move out here, after which they are to be given a comprehensive "Jackass Test". If they fail, their residency here is to be terminated. Curley obviously would have been sent packing decades ago.


John Curley is one of the most astute radio personalities on the air in this area. He, along with Luke burbank are the new generation in talk hosts. They both have incredible senses of recall and are very quick with reasoning and deductive conclusive decisions. They immensly compliment the air waves and both are getting more popular by the day. In my opinion, those who would criticize them are simply jealous of their talents and success.

If Curley's point was eventually going to be, after his seemingly interminable circumlocution, how great it was to see the heroism of the tho guys in the cafe, and the lady who gave CPR to the carjack victim, with the maniac still there, he should have just gotten straight to the point. At most, a VERY fleeting reference to the indiffernece to crime victims and death that has gone on in New York and other big cities back east would have been appropriate.. He shouldn't have brought himself personally into the story at all. Not the time and place for it. It simply takes attention away from the victims and the heroes of the previous day. A writer for the Huffington Post did a story about the heroes and heroines of the Seattle shootings , but he didn't preface it with a bunch of rambling paragraphs concerning his personal history. He didn't reference himself at all.

Reverend Beamer

I noticed in Curley's "subway story", that he apparently never pulled the "stop the train " handle himself, as he was implying would have been the right thing to do. He was told to shutup about the stabbing by other riders and did nothing, like them. This guy is a putz who undoubtedly would have been cowering under a table at Cafe Racer , not standinp up and throwing stools at the gunman like the hero Adam in the Huffington Post story about the Seattle shootings.

Reverend Beamer

this is all" in my opinion" about you only, of course, Curley.


Uncle, I just checked in with my laptop after returning to my room from a tanning session on our private beach here at the Hotel Martinez, Cannes, and read your series of posts on Curley. I must say congrats. You speak for legions. Tomorrow morning i leave for Paris and a connecting flight back to Seattle.


So anyone want to guess what Dori's big announcement is on Monday?

a. He is choosing a new name that isnt a girl's name.

b. He is replacing Ron and Don and will now have a 7 hour show.

c. There is no announcement but it will get 4 more people to tun in on Monday.


One will just have to tune in (like one normally does) to find out. My guess would be that he may be formally introducing a co-host?
His ratings will continue to soar.

He walks upstairs and gets a beer, then goes back down stairs to choose another Walter Mitty character.
