Jennifer Montana is a Hero

Jennifer Montana saved her own grandchild from a kidnapper. Former football player Joe Montana will probably be talking about his brave and heroic spouse for the rest of his life:

Football great Joe Montana and his wife, Jennifer, faced down a would-be kidnapper at their Malibu home this weekend, saving their 9-month-old grandchild from being taken.

Montana told police an unknown woman entered the residence on Saturday and took his grandchild from a playpen, where the child was sleeping, according to a Los Angeles Sheriff's Department statement.

As the suspect held the child, Joe and Jennifer Montana, "confronted the female, attempted to de-escalate the situation, and asked for the suspect to give back their grandchild," according to the LASD.

"A tussle ensued and Mrs. Montana was able to safely pry the child out of the suspect’s arms," the LASD statement stated.

This story leads with Jennifer Montana's bravery and it notes that Joe was there to witness things.

I Guess I am Now a Dodgers Fan


Continuing in the tradition of horrible photographs that have been uploaded into the now-horrible Blogger platform, the Los Angeles Dodgers have held a press conference to announce that they are going to give their employees Election Day as a day off.  They are also encouraging employees of the Dodgers organization to be poll workers and to vote.

In the future, a Democratic Congress is going to send a Democratic president a bill that makes Election Day a national holiday, one where there is no school and where everyone takes the day off to vote. That is, unless they have already voted by mail or if they have voted early. Then, well, take the day off anyway! You did your part for democracy.

This is an idea that ought to catch fire throughout the country. Want to give everyone a reason to cheer up? Give them November 3rd off as a paid vacation day and encourage them to vote.
