Welcome to the show.
We celebrated 10 years of togetherness this week. Melanie received a gift from Jim (intended as a Christmas gift), A bass drum head with her Hope Heart logo emblazoned in pink. Looks and sounds great! Thanks to the folks at drumart.com for doing such an amazing job.
A deadly helicopter crash in southern California took the lives of at least nine people on Sunday, including NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Bryant was reportedly on his way to a basketball game with his daughter, Gigi, when the helicopter went down. He was 41 years old.
Born in Philadelphia
Father was also an NBA player.
Kobe opted into the NBA right out of high school (a rare thing, especially at the time. He signed with the Charlotte Hornets, who traded him to the Lakers. He quickly proved his merit with the Lakers and became the second youngest NBA player in history when the 1996–97 season opened. He was selected for the NBA All-Star Game in just his second season, becoming the youngest All-Star.
He was with LA for his entire 20-year career, helping to lead the team to 5 NBA championships during that time.

RIP to Terry Jones as well…”He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!”
The Mass Killing that Never Wuz!
Wasn’t there supposed to be a cartload of dead bodies in the streets of Richmond at that gun rally on Monday? A bunch of arrests? White supremacists chanting and walking around with white robes and swastikas and stuff?
Over 20,000 attendees.
One dingbat arrested for wearing a mask.
There were fringeoids there, of course, but the vast majority of attendees, armed and not, peacefully protested proposed gun control laws championed by Virginia governor Northam.
A success despite the whining of lefties and their doggos in the media.
An armed populace is a polite populace.
In honor of the event we play a classic episode of THE O’REITZ FILES.
