A short take on today’s news

BY JOE GENCO

–Here’s to the photographer recording the assassin in Turkey. It takes some guts for a journalist to witness a murder and, rather than fleeing, rely on his skills to record the event. http://www.businessinsider.com/the-photographer-who-capture…

-Gabrielle Ballow, the cowardly bar owner who, in 2013, ran over Barry Moss on Route 5 and left him to die has been sentenced to a year in jail. It’s a sad day when that’s all she could get but heck, before his coronation, Frank Sedita wouldn’t even prosecute. http://wivb.com/…/ballowe-sentenced-to-1-year-for-fatal-hi…/

–Buffalo Rising does a takedown of the State’s stupid plan for the Scajaquada. Here’s a better idea: Make the speed limit 40 mph, add some guardrails and let it go. https://www.buffalorising.com/…/expressway-planned-for-del…/

–Christmas music fun on Main Street in Clarence. Open mic at Penny Lane is a great time. https://discovermainstreet.org/…/whats-christmas-without-m…/

–Hey, about those opioids. It’s not just my kids’ generation, or even mine paying the terrible price. It’s seniors too. Reality sucks. http://www.npr.org/…/opioids-can-derail-the-lives-of-older-…

–The fireworks market in Mexico which inspectors just last week declared “the safest in all of Latin America” has blown up and 9 people are dead. http://www.nytimes.com/…/am…/mexico-fireworks-explosion.html

–Boyd Curiosity: From where does tortoiseshell come? From one species only, the hawksbill, because it can be sliced into thin pieces and molded into wondrous shapes.

–Snow Roll was fun, but Tour Delights in Knoxville looks like it was even more fun. Asheville is near Knoxville, and kind of hip but I think its friends from Tennessee have something good going on. http://insideofknoxville.com/…/downtown-knoxville-hosts-20…/

–Want access to the President-elect? $1 million and it’s yours. You can even hunt with his sons. Never mind that his sons set up the charity. Please don’t ask whether your money is really going where they said. Do you want access, or don’t you? I love the way they always hid things like this when it was the Bushes, Obamas or Clintons doing it. Now its in the open and we are suppposed to be upset. https://www.publicintegrity.org/…/donald-trumps-sons-behind…

–Calexit. It’s a thing. The Independent Republic of California has even opened a Russian Embassy. How long before Texas starts making secessionist noise? http://www.latimes.com/…/la-pol-ca-essential-politics-updat…

–Shady and Alexander made the Pro Bowl. No Highway 64 and no Zach Brown, at least as starters. http://www.wgr550.com/McCoy-Alexander-Named-to-Pro…/22967668

–The Sabres made it to a shootout and lost. They are so horrible in shootout maybe they should consider pulling the goalie in overtime. Oh and is it just me, or is Marcu Foligno still improving incrementally? https://www.nhl.com/gamecent…/buf-vs-fla/…/12/20/2016020487…
