This is the story of a baby hummingbird that was rescued after it was attacked. The song is “Better Together” by Jack Johnson. As the young rescuer in the video explained, when she thought she was ready to leave (and she was) she flew off to her favorite patch of the back yard, and her instincts instantly kicked in, and now she’s just like all the other hummingbirds. for those that are concerned that she has imprinted on humans and wouldn’t survive in the wild, don’t worry, she is thriving. she has even successfully migrated and returned back to the yard.

Before his interview with Jimmy Fallon last Friday night, Donald Trump interviewed his “reflection” in the mirror!
It was 5:56 A.M. and I was doing my regular 5 to 10 a.m. morning radio show here in L.A. and just coming out of Kim Carnes “Bette Davis Eyes” and had my two regular TV monitors of Channel 5 & Channel 11 in front of me watching reporters trying to make some sense out of what they were seeing & reporting in New York City of a plane crashing into one of the World Trade Center towers. At first glance, I thought it was like I had read about a plane hitting the Empire State building in New York in the 40’s, but that was in a thick fog, and this day in New York that I was looking at on TV was a bright blue sky.
On this 13th anniversary of 9-11, If you never heard of Rick Rescorla, you are missing out on one of the best stories of an “American” hero. Rescorla was a very bright, and a critical thinker. In 1992 he warned the World Trade Center’s Port Authority that the massive structures were vulnerable to bomb attacks in their basement parking garage, but his warning was not heeded. In 1993 the first terrorist attack on the WTC happened. Rick helped evacuate the building, and was the last man out. Rescorla became director of security for Morgan Stanley headquartered in the World Trade Center in 1997. Feeling the WTC was too vulnerable a target for terrorists, Rick recommended Morgan Stanley leave the structure and find new office spaces. But they were locked into a lease. So, Rescorla then made certain all employees of Morgan Stanley train and practice in emergency evacuations from the WTC building, drilling them every three months. On September 11, 2001 Rick Rescorla was supposed to be on vacation. Instead, he was filling in so one of his deputies could go on vacation. When all the Morgan Stanley employees were safely out, Rick went back inside to help more people escape the inevitable doom he had feared and predicted years before. He did not make it back out this time, as the buildings collapsed. Rick Rescorla’s birth certificate may have said England but he was an American hero through and through!
