There’s been a lot of troubling news in the past week and it’s starting to get me down. So, I think talking about it would help.
NFL players Corey Smith (above) and Marquis Cooper, along with their friend William Bleakley, are still missing off the Florida coast after their fishing boat capsized in rough water. A fourth man, Nick Schuyler, was found alive and sitting atop the overturned boat about 40 miles west of Egmont Key, Florida, on Monday afternoon. The Coast Guard suspended its search for the men yesterday.
This one sits atop my sad news list because I went to college with Corey and knew him during my school days. I remember him being extremely nice and a good friend to all who knew him. I hope and pray that he and his friends are found alive soon.
Rihanna has apparently gone back to her abusing SOB boyfriend, Chris Brown. While this kind of thing isn’t uncommon (Battered Women’s Syndrome), it doesn’t make it any less sad or frustrating.
It was reported a few days ago that Ed McMahon has been in the hospital for several weeks now battling unnamed ailments and pneumonia. The former Tonight Show sidekick turns 86 this week. I hope he celebrates that milestone with a speedy recovery.
