Sarai Sierra, a 33-year-old mother of two, went missing January 21 while on vacation alone in Istanbul, Turkey. Her body was found on Saturday, 12 days later, in a low-income district of Sarayburnu near the remnants of the city's ancient walls. Police said she had suffered a fatal blow to the head. Police have detained nine people in connection with the case.
Prosecutors in Istanbul got a court order Monday for authorities to take blood and DNA samples from 21 people already questioned in the death of the New York city woman.
I have no idea why anyone in their right mind would ever voluntarily visit or work in any city in the middle east. It's a desert of barefoot idiots who live in the same conditions and with the same mentality for over 2,000 years. If anyone has the desire to be killed by idiots, you don't have to go to to the mid-east. Just take a trip to Chicago or Detroit and save your family the cost of shipping your body home.
The White House has released a picture purporting to show President Obama "skeet shooting" at Camp David. An activity he claims he does "all the time." The White House has further suggested that the photograph not be photoshopped, to wit:
"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."
I wholeheartedly agree with White House and remembering the famous political duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, here's a picture that I'd like to call: "The Duel Between Barry Soetero and Barrack Hussein Obama."

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: In reaching his plane seat, a man is surprised to see a parrot strapped into the seat next to him. The man asks the stewardess for a cup of coffee and the parrot squawks, "And why don't you get me a whisky you bitch."
The stewardess, flustered by the parrot's outburst, brings back a whisky for the parrot but inadvertently forgets the man's cup of coffee. As the man nicely points out the omission of his coffee to the stewardess, the parrot downs his drink and shouts, "And get me another whisky you slut."
Visibly shaken, the stewardess comes back with the parrot's whisky but still no coffee for the man. Unaccustomed to such slackness, the man decides that he is going to try the parrots approach, "I've asked you twice for a cup of coffee wench, I expect you to get it for me right now or I'm going to slap that disgustingly ugly face of yours!"
The next thing they know, both the man and the parrot are wrenched up and thrown out of the emergency exit by 2 burly stewards. Plunging downwards to the ground the parrot turns to the man and says, "For someone who can't fly, you sure are a lippy bastard... "
A mother and her son were flying Southwest Airlines from Oakland to Kansas City. The son, who had been looking out the window, turned to his mother and said, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes? The mother, who couldn't think of an answer, told her son to ask the flight attendant.
So, the little boy asked the flight attendant, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?" The flight attendant asked, "Did your mother tell you to ask me that?" He said that she had. With a clever grin, she said, "Tell your mother it's because Southwest Airlines always pulls out on time."

Henry Ford dies and goes to heaven. At the gates, an angel tells Ford, "Well, you've been such a good guy and your invention, the assembly line for the automobile, changed the world. As a reward, you can hang out with anyone you want to in Heaven." Ford thinks about it and says, "I wanna hang out with God, himself."
The befeathered fellow at the gate takes Ford to the Throne Room and introduces him to God. Ford then asks God, "Hey, aren't you the inventor of woman?" God says, "Uh, yes." Ford says, "Well, you have some major design flaws in your invention:
l. There's too much front end protrusion
2. It chatters at high speeds
3. The rear end wobbles too much.
4. The intake is placed too close to the exhaust.
God says, "Hold on." God goes to the Celestial Supercomputer, types in a few keystrokes and waits for the result. The computer prints out a slip of paper. God reads it and says, "It may be that my invention is flawed, Henry, but according to my computer, more men are riding my invention than yours."
