There were Heroes.

Vice will be airing an interview with the band, Eagles of Death Metal and their experience at the Bataclan night club the night of the paris attacks. this is the preview:



There are other stories, and I wish more were highlighted, like this one.
The 36-year-old, named only as Matthew, was dragged to safety by a French journalist after being shot in the leg during the massacre at the Bataclan theater on Friday, November 13.

And he revealed that, on September 11, 2001, he also came close to being killed.

He was in the street below the World Trade Center when the first plane struck the north tower, he told France's Le Monde newspaper. (snip)

He was spotted by Le Monde journalist Daniel Psenny, who'd been filming panicked concertgoers rushing from the scene from his nearby apartment.

"I was playing dead. When I felt someone dragging me by the arms, I didn't even look up. I said, or at least in my head – 'I love you, my angel,’” Matthew, whose wife had been due to attend the gig but didn’t because she had to babysit their child, added.

With the help of another unidentified man, Psenny hauled Matthew -- who used to live in New York and only moved to Paris with his family in July -- into his apartment.

There were these survivors and there was this man, Dr. Patrick Pelloux .
His experience as an emergency room doctor certainly contributed to that dexterity. But it was the attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo back in January that made Dr. Pelloux an authority.

He was a writer for the magazine at the time, and could have easily been present at the news meeting that was underway when gunmen barged into the offices and fired at staff, many at point-blank range, killing 11 people. (snip)

That was traumatic enough, but less than a year later, Dr. Pelloux was again on the triage front line last Friday as Paris coped with a far deadlier attack on civilians.

We would be well served to seek the humanity in this inhuman tragedy, because humanity is what gives us hope.

Peace and Love,
Raine

I swear, I'm going to secede just so we don't have to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Very uncomfortable night last night. Went to bed at 8 but was up again at midnight and couldn't go back to sleep again, stomach felt really unsettled. Poor Sophie didn't know what to make of me continually sitting up all night.

I think I will make an early exit to avoid the maniacs arriving early at The Razor to get their pre-game buzz on.

All of a sudden, the Captain's eyes popped wide open and he stood..
Right up straight, grabs a hold of the wheel
Looks on over the bow of that boat and he says
I'M GONNA MOVE YOU BABYYYYYYYYYY
And he did right into an iceberg and she went right on down!

Speaking of Jacksonville, it got name checked on Ash vs Evil Dead. It is the place that Ash has always wanted to visit.

Good morning, bloggers!!

I hope that you are doing well. I survived our first snowstorm of the season (We got 3 inches or so of snow here, but other parts of Chicagoland got closer to a foot of snow.)

Raine, thanks for a great blog. We must not forget our compassion and humanity in the face of tragedy and our pain.

Anyone got a drinking game involving brown liquor for Thursday?

This is such a shitshow on both sides of the family that I just decided to have a Second Thanksgiving on Sunday, within a totally sealed TriSec compound, so that maybe we can have a decent afternoon.

I think you should have specific liqours for each side of the family. When a Cuban relative says something stupid, shot of rum.

When a Italian and or Philipino relative says something stupid. Umm I dunno sambuco? That's not brown...hmm. Just stick with the rum

Busy job hunting while I am off today. I am checking out East first, and found something in Salem. I do have a maternity leave sub position interview at 4 PM today.

I got a headache. I could probably sleep for a week.
