Tony Kanaan Wins The Indy 500 Sunday With A Little Good Luck Charm!

Posted by: | May 26, 2013 at 5:39 p.m.

THe 12th try was the charm for Tony Kanaan at the Indy 500, and the charm may have been one returned to him 9 years after he gave it away! Nine years ago, Tony Kanaan had visited a young girl named Andrea Brown at a hospital. She was getting ready to undergo emergency surgery for a brain aneurysm and was a fan of Kanaan’s. The driver gave her a medal for good luck and was pleased to find out later that her surgery went well. Now a young woman of 24, Brown returned the medal to Kanaan prior to Sunday’s race via overnight mail with a note that read, “Here’s your good-luck charm back. Now you take it and win the Indianapolis 500!”

Principal & Teachers Revisit The Scene And Story Of The Moore Tornado!

Posted by: | May 24, 2013 at 11:34 p.m.

Amy Simpson, the Oklahoma Principal at Plaza Towers Elementary School memorializes the 7 students lost in tornado that swept through Moore, Oklahoma school this past Monday afternoon!

Rhonda Crosswhite, a teacher at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma, describes covering her students with her body to protect them from the tornado that devastated the school.

The Plaza Towers School is named after the 3 KOMA Radio towers, a station I worked at in 1966, just to the north of the school you can see in the diagram below.
Moore OK Moore will always have a place in my heart from my 1 year I spent at KOMA in 1966, I bought my first house there with a backyard that was butted up against that giant field you see here with the yellow line running to the school. Toby Keith & I talked about Moore where he grew up & how you could hear KOMA on your toilet pipes he lived so close too, when I did Country music in the 90’s. I remember taking my family to KOMA a couple of times & waiting out some tornado warnings back then, because KOMA had this Emergency broadcast studio below ground with 6 foot concrete & steel walls that doubled as a production studio. Can’t imagine Moore going through 2 tornadoes like this just 14 years apart, with the one in 1999.
KOMA Towers These 3 KOMA Radio Towers, that were erected in 1946, are still standing having survived 2 of the most powerful tornadoes ever recorded.

Abercrombie & Fitch Gets a Brand Readjustment #FitchTheHomeless

Posted by: | May 15, 2013 at 9:25 p.m.


In a 2006 “Salon” interview, Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries stated that he only wanted “the cool kids” crowd of attractive people wearing his clothing, no plus size women, A & F doesn’t even make XL or XXL for them. To quote Jeffries “In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. We want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don’t market to anyone other than that.” Los Angeles writer Greg Karber has set out to change all that! Watch the video!
