Legal Issues

Hey guys, I'm handing over today's post to Roni Loren, guest blogger over at Pub Rants.  Go check this article out before you hit your Pintrest, post another blog, or even make a meme at Very Demotivational.  You might just avoid a law suit because of it.  You can find the post here.  (Thanks to MaryAnn for the heads up about this one.)

And before I sign off, I just want to put in a plug for a cause very near to my heart right now.  I'll start by saying I'm sorry all my posts are so dark lately.  I guess Colorado is having a tough year.

You might have heard about the tragedy that took place on opening night for Batman The Dark Knight Rises.  Twelve people were shot and killed, while another fifty nine were injured in a shooting that took place inside a theater in Aurora, Colorado.

I've been to that theater.  I knew some of the people at that screening.  One friend on Facebook posted that while she and her family were not hurt, the man sitting behind her was killed.  For me, this is hard to fathom.  It's worse when you hear the stories of the people that lost their lives.  One man died on his twenty-seventh birthday.  Another died shielding his girlfriend from the killer.  The worst was the death of a six year old girl.  I can't begin to process so much chaos and sadness.  I can't comprehend the mentality of anyone willing to inflict this kind of devastation.

It's like Alfred said in The Dark Knight: 

"Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."

So if you go see Batman, please, enjoy the show.  But if you find time, go donate a little blood in memory of the people who died on Thursday night.  You never know when the people in your community might need it.


  1. Trisha, I'm so sorry for your friends, and for Colorado right now. If you want, I know a great house in Utah that's for sale...

    thanks for posting, I wondered about you, and I'm glad you and your family is safe.

  2. The people of Colorado have had more than their share of tragedy this year. My heart and prayers goes out to all of them who have suffered from this tragedy.

    Trisha, thanks for letting us know your family is safe. I hope your friends can recover from such a traumatic experience.

  3. Thankfully the people I knew at the theater were safe. And Sheena, if I decide to leave the state and look for housing in Utah, yours will be the first house I look at. Unfortunately, I really like Colorado for the most part. Thank you both for your prayers and concern.

  4. What MaryAnn said - and I hope that things in Colorado only look up from here. Hugs and prayers for you and your community.

  5. What a shocking horrible thing that was. I still can't wrap my head around it. One of my best friends grew up in Aurora, so I feel a special connection to the place, even though I've never been there.

    Thank you for the tips about posting pictures too. I was a lot more cautious when I first started blogging, and I've gotten pretty lazy.
