many school districts have police officers assigned or school security officers.  I wonder if this school was such.  And if the officer was able to 'first respond?'

Your prescient question about the SRO was answered today by the Sheriff:

I'm not currently gaming, but, back in the day, I had an Atari 5200 (Defender). Then later, I picked up gaming again through a friend, who was a Sega CD enthusiast.

Road Rash
Ecco the Dolphin
Need For Speed II

Then, I got into Playstation:
Medal Of Honor

For a couple of years, I worked at a call center as a Playstation C/S agent. Mostly helping the electronically challenged getting their Playstation properly hooked up to their TV, usually, at that time, by way of their VCR.

The most typical case is that the parents dump their kids off with their playstation at the grandparents. Then I'd get a call from the grandparents to help them plug the RCA cables into the correct "inputs", and to somehow get the VCR into "Video" mode, which they had never done before. And, as you might have gussed, some og the older VCR's could ONLY go into "Video" mode with the remote, that was long lost...

The other bulk of calls were to troubleshoot a Playstation that wasn't working. When we figured out that the Playstation was connected properly, then, if it still wouldn't work, I'd give them instructions to ship the unit to be repaired for in or ut of warranty service.

Note, Sony would refuse to repair any unit, regardless of warranty, if it had bio damage, including roach infestations, or baby brother pee pee in it. Or a spilled glass of juice or milk.

Great Documentary of the creation of the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

I caught Graham's Crusade at Texas Stadium on their 2nd visit. (Graham's first visit to Texas Stadium was actually the first event ever held there after it was completed, if memory serves me.)

I actually enjoy watching the films of the crusades on TBN more than going to one. The hassle of the traffic and parking and finding good seating takes it out of you. Sitting on the couch it's much easier to take it all in.  :D

Maybe Pudly is down south protesting the building of the wall he said would never be started

In November, SWF Constructors of Omaha, Neb., won a contract for $18 million to replace the wall in Calexico, about 120 miles east of San Diego. It encompasses an area bisected by the New River, where smugglers are known to guide people through polluted waters. The project, which includes a bridge over the river, is expected to take 300 days.The administration cleared the way for construction in September by waiving dozens of environmental and other reviews in Calexico. A 2005 law exempted it from environmental reviews if the Homeland Security secretary deems a wall to be in national security interests.

I had wondered at times if he would make it to, or even break 100.

Billy Graham's partner in evangelism, gospel singer and hymn composer George Beverly Shea made to 104.

Evangelist Billy Graham, who counseled presidents and preached to millions across the world from his native North Carolina to communist North Korea during his 70 years in the pulpit, died on Wednesday at the age of 99, a spokesman said.

He died at 8am EST at his home in Montreat, North Carolina, according to Jeremy Blume, a spokesman for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

According to his ministry, he preached to more people than anyone else in history, reaching hundreds of millions of people either in person or via TV and satellite links. He was famed for his style of roaming the stage and hoisting a Bible as he declared Jesus Christ to be the only solution to humanity's problems.

Mr Graham, nicknamed God's Machine Gun, became the de facto White House chaplain to several US presidents, most famously Richard Nixon. He also met with scores of world leaders and was the first noted evangelist to take his message behind the Iron Curtain.

    The GREAT Billy Graham is dead. There was nobody like him! He will be missed by Christians and all religions. A very special man.
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2018

He delivered a sermon to the queen in the Royal Family's private chapel, and was featured in the recent mini series "The Crown" as a spiritual adviser to the young Queen Elizabeth II.

Graham delivered a sermon for the queen on Easter Sunday in 1995 in the royal family’s private chapel.

At his 95th birthday celebrations in 2013 some 800 guests, including Republican politician Sarah Palin, business magnates Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump and television hostess Kathie Lee Gifford paid tribute.

The celebration featured a video of a sermon that his son Franklin said was Graham's last message to the nation. Graham had been working for a year on the video, which was aired on Fox News. In it, he said America was "in great need of a spiritual awakening."

In his prime Graham had a thunderous, quick-burst speaking style that earned him the nickname "God's Machine Gun." Through his "Crusades for Christ," Graham sowed fields of devotion across the American heartland that would become fertile ground for the growth of the religious right's conservative political movement.

His influence was fueled by an organization that carefully planned his religious campaigns, putting on international conferences and training seminars for evangelical leaders, Martin said.

Graham's mastery of the media was ground-breaking. In addition to radio and publishing, he used telephone lines, television and satellites to deliver his message to homes, churches and theaters around the world.

Some 77 million saw him preach in person while nearly 215 million more watched his crusades on television or through satellite link-ups, a Graham spokeswoman said.

    News of Billy Graham's death is "fake news." He's more alive than ever! The life he now lives will never end. THAT was his message. If not true, his entire life was a tragedy. It wasn't. My tribute to Dr. Billy Graham attached.

    Billy Graham lifted eyes toward heaven and instilled heaven’s values in hearts. The world mourns this man of character, this man of God.
    — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) February 21, 2018

Graham started meeting with presidents during the tenure of Harry Truman. He played golf with Gerald Ford, skinny-dipped in the White House pool with Lyndon Johnson, vacationed with George HW Bush and spent the night in the White House on Nixon's first day in office.

George W Bush gave Graham credit for helping him rediscover his faith and in 2010, when it was difficult for Graham to travel, the then president Barack Obama made the trip to the preacher's log cabin home in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Graham's reputation took a hit because of Nixon after the release of 1972 White House tapes in which the two were heard making anti-Semitic comments. Graham later said he did not remember the conversation and apologized.

Graham concluded his career of religious campaigns in June 2005 in New York with a three-day stand that attracted more than 230,000 people, his organization said. He turned over his evangelical association to his son Franklin. Graham's other four children were also evangelists.

In addition to suffering with Parkinson's disease for many years, Graham's health problems in his later years included a broken hip, a broken pelvis, prostate cancer and installation of a shunt in his brain to control excess fluid. He was hospitalized in 2011, 2012 and 2013 for respiratory problems.

1977 The Song Remains The Same

This re-mastered song from the May 30th concert in Maryland has been mixed to sound much like what it did at a Led Zeppelin concert. Many bootlegs don't sound good, but this song is an exception.
