What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Voodoo killing related to Barack visit?

Okay. There's weird and there's hate and there's really weird hate. A decapitated goat found here in the area after Presidential hopeful Barack Obama's visit is now being linked to one Republican group's belief that Obama is a voodoo priest. Really folks, I can't make this stuff up.

The decapitated and eviscerated goat was found, according to the Register and Bee, Saturday on private property in the Eagle Springs area. According to the Register and Bee the killing apparently was part of a religious ritual. The killing is believed to have occurred on Thursday or Friday, shortly before Obama's visit to Martinsville and Danville.

Salt had been spread on the goat’s body and chicken eggs and ears of corn were placed around it. The careful placement of these items and the presence of a jar of water and a candle lead officials to believe the goat was killed as part of a ritual.

This is not the first time there have been voodoo rituals in Danville or the surrounding area. A couple of years ago there were decapitated chickens left at road crossings in the area. The Humane Society investigated those too - and apparently suffered (employees said) from a curse placed on them. While the police had a suspect - a local voodoo priest (who was given money by the county to replace his sacrificial goats last year after they were killed by coyotes) no arrests were ever made or anything proven.

It will be interesting to see how Obama's campaign handles this one.
