Street People in Philly.

I took PATCO over to Philly to run errands since I dwell in South Jersey.  While walking up Market Street East  I encounter this man.

“My life is broken, can you help me fix it?”

That is a powerful question.  It made me reflect.

MLB Philadelphia Phillies Pull Out Win 5-4 Against First Place Atlanta Braves, July 5, 2013.

My cousin Marjorie (another die-hard Phillies Fan) and I decided to do a mental health break and attend a Phillies game.  It was an unbelievable event as Howard took one deep when we were walking late into the Citizen’s Bank. Score was 5-0 in 5th. Then, the Braves started creeping back in the 7th as Lee was having a meltdown. 5-4, Oh no, as Marjorie and I started yelling to the field to our beloved Phillies. Papelbon ( the matador, For Whom the Bell Tolls) and Chooch came in  the 9th and closed down the first place chop chop tomahawk, Atlanta Braves.  ( I always despised that chant)

Praise the Lord for little things in life.

Hope still lies in the Phiilies as they have a long home stand before the All Star Break July 16, 2013 ( BTW, that day is my Birthday)

Excellent seats, great time.  Then we headed to Xfinity Live for Chickie and Pete’s famous Crab Fries.

Below are some photos from the game. Everyone likes their picture taken. ( even the Mets fan sitting with the girl next to us.  He was rooting for the Braves because he hates the Phils. But that was OK. )

All was well at the Ballpark last night.  The Girls (women) didn’t have their children with them. We could yell, yell and yell some more.  They tend to sublimate our limitless amount of energy.

Lee, Phils pick up crucial win over first-place Braves

James Holmes make first court appearance in Colorado,  Viewing live, the suspect seems despondent, eyes closed at some times during the court appearance with his public defender. Wearing a maroon short sleeve V neck shirt with a white one underneath. He seems to be staring into oblivion and exhibiting sadness. He did not speak. With his dyed bright curly red hair, his eyebrows were raised then lowered. Did not speak to his defense lawyers. The defense counsel has just been introduced to him this morning.  Was the suspect coached? Was he acting the part of insanity? There is only a cell phone feed from the court-house.

He was read his rights. He was not be formally charged. Mandatory restraining order. The actual files of charges will not be until next Monday. Judge read a Rule 5 advisement.

The State Prosecutor is term limited. Only until November is she able to handle this case. Then, there will be another person assigned.

What this a video game he played in his reality? Was there a signs of mental illness that people close to him avoided? Where do we as a society find the answers?

Holmes calmly told detectives he had taken 100mg of the prescription painkiller Vicodin, and identified himself as “The Joker”.  Click Here
