JACKSON (WWJ/AP) – A Jackson woman suffering from amnesia who disappeared for three weeks last year before turning up in Illinois has begun recovering some of her lost memories, and many of them are painful. Amber Gerweck said memories have flooding back in recent months, including some that were so painful they may have brought on her amnesia in the first place.

Gerweck, 33, walked up to a police officer in Joliet, Ill. last May and said she didn’t know her name, where she was or how she had gotten there. Police later learned she was Gerweck, a secretary from Jackson. She remembered nothing about herself and few things about the world and was diagnosed with amnesia. The last thing Gerweck recalls before disappearing was driving to a Jackson convenience store for ice cream … [Read more...] about Memories Return For Woman Who Had Amnesia

Authorities in the southern U.S. state of Georgia say suspect Robert Aaron Long claimed Tuesday’s shootings at three Atlanta-area massage parlors were not racially motivated but were instead a result of “sex addiction” issues. Seven of the eight victims were women. The 21-year-old man was arrested just hours after the attack. Atlanta Deputy Police Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said Long had “frequented” two of the parlors located in Northeast Atlanta. Long had been expected to be arraigned Thursday afternoon, but The Washington Post , citing the Cherokee County district attorney’s office, said Long waived his right to appear, doing so in writing through his attorney. In addition to six victims of Asian descent, a white man and a white woman were also killed. A ninth person remained hospitalized with injuries, police said. Authorities have identified four of the victims as Delaina Ashley Yaun, 33, of Acworth; Paul Andre Michels, 54, of Atlanta; Xiaojie Yan, 49, of … [Read more...] about Atlanta Shooting Suspect Says Sex Addiction, Not Racial Hatred, Spurred Attack
The suspect in the shooting deaths of six Asian American women and two others at state of Georgia massage parlors has been strongly condemned by the church he and his family had attended for years. Robert Aaron Long is the sole suspect charged in all eight deaths at three locations in the Atlanta area. “We want to be clear that this extreme and wicked act is nothing less than rebellion against our Holy God and His Word. Aaron’s actions are antithetical to everything that we believe and teach as a church,” Crabapple First Baptist Church said Friday in a statement. “In the strongest possible terms, we condemn the actions of Aaron Long as well as his stated reasons for carrying out this wicked plan,” said the church, located in the city of Milton. Authorities in the southern U.S. state of Georgia say suspect Long claimed Tuesday’s shootings were not racially motivated but were instead a result of “sex addiction” issues.

The woman-respecter. Photo: Demetrius Freeman-Pool/Getty Images Everyone pretends to care about women when it’s convenient. Take Senator Josh Hawley, who has a point to prove and along with it, a newfound respect for the ladies. Hawley, like the rest of his party, opposes the Equality Act, which would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. That would protect queer and trans women, but they are women Hawley hates, and so the Equality Act must fall. But even in today’s GOP, that truth is a little gauche. Hawley needs a different justification. Fortunately, journalist Abigail Shrier has given him one. When Shrier testified in the Senate against the Equality Act on Wednesday, she did so on the basis that its protections for trans people would harm women and girls. Imagine your daughter or granddaughter was a top high school athlete, she said, and then “five biological boys suddenly decided at the age of 17 … [Read more...] about Fake Feminists Fight the Equality Act
“Countdown,” Keith Olbermann’s hour-long weeknight news and political commentary program that aired on MSNBC from 2003-2011, included a segment called “The Worst Person in the World.” Introduced by Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, the feature began with bronze and silver level “worse” and “worser” nominees before naming the gold star winner. I propose reviving the “worst person” contest. In deference to the resurgence of “America First,” I think eligibility should be restricted to citizens of the United States. The musical background should be Beyonce’s rendition of “Proud To Be An American.” And I think the winners for March 2021 would be: ADVERTISEMENT Worse: During the 2020 presidential campaign, radio and television personality Mark Levin Mark Reed Levin Newsmax anchor Greg Kelly to host New York radio show It will be Vice (or) President Harris against Gov.
