This lost toy at Vidler’s 5 & 10 in East Aurora is taking to the Internet in an effort to find the friend who misplaced them.  While larger stores might have seen the small cat and thrown him into the trash after a few days of remaining unclaimed, Vidler’s wasn’t about to say “die.”  After fixing the small tear in the toy’s leg, the store made sure to post this whimiscal tale of the cat trying to find his owner in an effort to reunite the two parties.  Reposts and Reblogs of this picture are welcome as they continue to search for the cat’s owner.

At the age of 36 years and 20 days, former Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax, who placed himself on the voluntarily retired list because of an arthritic left arm in 1966, becomes the youngest player to be elected into the Hall of Fame. Also getting the nod from the baseball writers are Yankee legend Yogi Berra and Early Wynn, a 300-game winner.

Black Male Sanitation Worker Sentenced to 30 Days in Jail For Reporting to Work Early, Annoying Residents in Predominately “White” Town

This past Friday, a black male sanitation worker was jailed for 30 days because residents of Sandy Springs, Georgia called 9-1-1 when they heard garbage pickup before 7 am, a violation of a city ordinance. The father of two pled guilty without an attorney present but is now, along with a new attorney, seeking to withdraw the original guilty plea. The attempted husband and father of two will be allowed to serve time on the weekend so he can continue to work.

Oftentimes, the so-called mainstream media attempts to obscure the systemic maltreatment of people who are classified as black to maintain the false image of “equal treatment under the law”. The New York Times and The Daily Mail, deceitfully emphasized two well-known black celebrities who live in the area, however according to city-data.com, black people represent a mere 18% of the population. Over 60% of the people are residents who classify themselves as “white”. This predominately “white” demographic is significant since there is a system of Racism (White Supremacy) in place that criminalizes black bodies while selectively enforcing laws.  As such, the White Supremacist enforcement of this city ordinance, which led to the greater confinement of a Victim of Racism for such a trivial affair, should come as no surprise.
