James “Jim”Dwight Britt
This week in the news was interesting.I find myself saying that a lot lately. WhatI love about the news is how diverse it is.You get the good with the bad, the heart-breaking with the uplifting. The kooky withthe “what the heck?”Here’s a few I like and think sum up thenature of news.There’s a new viral video. I’ll catch youup if you’ve missed it.Director Jason Russell’s expose “KONY2012’’ showcases the human rights abusesof a Ugandan warlord and his guerrillaarmy.People are outraged at the violence andhow children are forced into sex slavery,put in Joseph Kony’s army and even usedto kill their own families.CHILDREN.What I think is important about this isthat it has been going on for a long time andeven though people who could have donesomething about it didn’t, one man was cou-rageous enough to bring it to the world.We need more people to seek out injus-tice and make us see it. Things are often“out of sight, out of mind.” It’s easy to do.We need more people like Russell to shoveit in our face so we have to do somethingabout it.It made the news and now you and I andeveryone else knows. Something has to bedone. It’s just not an option to ignore it anylonger.Then there was the lottery-winning sin-gle mom who didn’t understand why shecouldn’t keep collecting food stamps. Afterall, she was still unemployed, had bills topay and had two houses to run. Never mindthe half-million in her bank account.Come on girl. You are better than that. Irefuse to believe this can be an acceptablemindset in our society. Sadly, some shareher rationale.They say you should dress for the jobyou want, not the one you have. A Braziliancity hired a guy who likes to dress up likeBatman. His job: to dress up like Batman. Idon’t know if you’re familiar with the crimerate in Brazil but he better be very careful.A lot of people won’t be happy with his newvocation. They even gave his name, whichis a clear violation of super hero protocol.No one ever gives up their alter ego.Pat Robertson thinks it’s a great ideato legalize marijuana. Here is one of hisquotes: “I really believe we should treatmarijuana the way we treat beverage alco-hol. I’ve never used marijuana and I don’tintend to, but it’s just one of those thingsthat I think: this war on drugs just hasn’tsucceeded.”He makes a valid point. The war on drugsdoes seem to be a losing battle and manylaw enforcement say chasing marijuanagrowers and dealers and the like takes a bigchunk of money that could be used to shutdown heroin dealers, meth labs and placesthat sell designer drugs that are killingpeople, etc. The pie’s only so big so youneed to pick the slices carefully.Our jails and prisons are full of thosewho break laws pertaining to marijuana andviolent, hardened criminals are being let outearly because of over-crowding.I’m not throwing a yeah or a ney outhere. I’m just sayin’,Then there was the pair who stole $500worth of nuts from the store. I don’t thinkI need to say anything else. This one’s kindof self-explanatory.Sometimes you feel like a nut.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.(AP) — Temperaturesdropped below freezingalmost every night, butsomehow Margaret Page andher cat survived 3 1/2 weeksin an isolated and ruggedregion of a southwesternNew Mexico national forest.Tucked away in a bluesleeping bag for warmthand set up near a creek fordrinking water, Page andher cat named Miya livedon just a handful of sup-plies, rescue workers saidFriday. The nearest town —tiny Dusty, N.M. — was 10miles away.Family members reportedher missing Feb 14. But forvarious reasons, authoritiesdidn’t start searching for heruntil this week. The 41-year-old Page, who has a his-tory of mental illness, wasfound Wednesday emaciatedand malnourished but well-hydrated.“Her cat was in bettershape than she was,” NewMexico State Police Searchand Rescue incident com-mander Marc Levesque said.“Her cat was also hunting.Page ran out of food a whileback.”Page apparently pur-posefully hiked off a trailbetween Feb. 10 and Feb.12. A Forest Service lawenforcement agent spottedher silver Chevy passengercar on Feb. 12, but didn’tthink much of it becausehikers leave vehicles neartrails all the time, said Lt.Robert McDonald, a spokes-man for the state police.
