I’ve heard of “Bible thumpers,” but this is ridiculous! Here’s the story from the UPI:

>>Woman accused of using Bible as a weapon

KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. (UPI) — Police in North Carolina said they arrested a woman whose alleged Bible-thumping left a woman with bruises and abrasions.

The arrest report said Evelyn Mills Moore, 57, of Kings Mountain struck the other woman “numerous times about her body with a closed fist and striking her with a Bible about her left arm,” the Gaston Gazette reported Tuesday.

The alleged victim was left with bruises and abrasions to her head, face and arms after the Saturday incident, police said. View full article »

drone, seattle

As if cyberstalking weren’t scary enough, now drones can sneak peeks at what people are doing from the sky above!

Here’s the story from of one guy using his drone to monitor someone’s activities:

>>A Seattle man ascended to a new level of creepiness recently when he flew a drone just a “few feet away” from a family’s home and defended his right to do so because he was flying it in the air, and thus not trespassing. He also claimed it was for research. The camera-equipped device emitted a loud noise, similar to that of a weed-whacker, which caught the attention of a woman inside.

She told Capitol Hill Seattle Blog that she saw the man on the sidewalk controlling the device near a third-story window in the eastern neighborhood. Her husband approached the man, who was standing on the sidewalk, and told him to desist from being creepy. The man told him that he was doing “research” and the camera was transmitting the images to his glasses. They called the police, but they didn’t show up since Inspector Gadget had already left.

“We are extremely concerned, as he could very easily be a criminal who plans to break into our house or a peeping-tom,” the wife told the hyperlocal blog.

Okay, some folks are used to moving to the front of the line.

Here’s an article from the New York Post on this subject:

>>They are 1 percenters who are 100 percent despicable.

Some wealthy Manhattan moms have figured out a way to cut the long lines at Disney World — by hiring disabled people to pose as family members so they and their kids can jump to the front, The Post has learned.

The “black-market Disney guides” run $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.

“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” crowed one mom, who hired a disabled guide through Dream Tours Florida. View full article »

I always loved 24, and I’m happy to hear it’ll be back, even in a limited format.

Here’s the news from Christian Toto at

>>Jack Bauer is back!

I’ve learned that, after marathon negotiations, Kiefer Sutherland has closed a deal for a new installment of 24 on Fox. With him on board, I hear Fox has greenlighted the real-time drama as a limited series and will announce it during its upfront presentation today. The continuation is a brain child of longtime 24 showrunner Howard Gordon, now executive producer of Showtime’s Homeland. His 20th Century Fox TV-based Teakwood Lane will co-produce the new 24 alongside original series producers Imagine TV and 20th TV, with Imagine’s Brian Grazer returning as executive producer. This will mark Fox’s second event series under the network’s push into that arena, joining the just-greenlighted M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines starring Matt Dillon. View full article »

These are tough times for television networks, particularly the “broadcast” ones.

For example, check out this Reuters article about the fact that the main four channels had to accept the lowest average rate hikes in three years:

>>U.S. broadcast networks head into their biggest ad-selling season this week, competing with streaming services like Netflix, battling online players for ad dollars, and fending off hits starring zombies and duck hunters on cable.

The increased competition will force ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC to settle for their lowest average rate hikes in three years during the “upfront” selling season, Wall Street analysts say.

During the upfronts, networks preview shows for their fall schedules, trying to persuade advertisers to buy billions of dollars worth of commercial time in advance. View full article »

I’m a big fan of Hoax Hunters, a great Image comic that’s described this way: “Cryptids. Aliens. Monsters. All the world’s bizarre secrets–what if they were real? Their existence would be debunked by a reality TV show! HOAX HUNTERS is that show, publicly disproving all variety of lore. But their real goal is the opposite: as the world’s dark corners surface, the HOAX HUNTERS cover them up. They demonstrate that the truth isn’t out there.”

I wrote a preview of the number zero issue here, and the first issue at this location. You can check out their website as well! I interviewed creator Michael Moreci during the 42nd episode of my weekly Wayne’s Comics podcast, which you can find at this link. Also, USA Today covered the book, and you can read that article on their site.

First off, I’m glad I went to the The Dark Knight Rises on Friday AFTER the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I would hate for this film, with its strong anti-terrorist message, to suffer at the hands of a real-life terrorist. Secondly, the latest word is that, during the midnight showing on late Thursday/early Friday, it nearly outpaced The Avengers by 10 million to set a new record!

Okay, now on to the film. Here’s the official description: Eight years on, a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham’s finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.

From the beginning until the last sequence, this film is a worthy successor and satisfying finale to the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman trilogy. There are so many interesting story lines taking place that my attention was gripped the entire way through. Even the “slower” character parts contributed to the movie in significant ways, so I’m sorry it’s now a part of history (in a good way)!

 We’ve still got months to wait for the next Star Trek feature film to warp into theaters, but until then, IDW is making some great Trek comics, and two of them arrived in stores this week!

1. Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who Assimilation2 (Squared) #3. Scott & David Tipton with Tony Lee (w) • J.K. Woodward (a) The two greatest science-fiction properties of all time cross over for the first time in history, in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO: ASSIMILATION2! The true horror of the Borg-Cybermen alliance has been revealed, but what course of action will Captain Picard and the Doctor agree upon? And will the Doctor’s recently resurfaced memories shed new night on the dilemma? FC • 32 pages • $3.99

It’s still great to see all the members of the Enterprise D team interact with the folks from the Tardis. However, the most fun part of this issue for me was a flashback when the Doctor (Tom Baker) works together with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the rest of that Enterprise crew. Even the art style changes, from painting to a more standard comic-book look. It’s a very well done sequence. I laughed when the Doctor asks Kirk to distract a Cyberman, and Kirk uses one of his trademark techniques! The last page has an interesting development that makes perfect sense given that the universes seem to be changed somehow! Excellent book, as usual!
