Well where we go again ... another blog about the insanity in the world. People have always been unstable in one form or another - subject to emotional flares triggered by brain chemistry and their programming. It's not just human insanity that seems to be at play now, but from what I observe from day to day, things in this reality simple don't work and malfunction in the most bizarre ways. These events are getting predictable, as the glitches in the grids are getting worse and more apparent in everyone's life.
Here's an email from a friend in the city sent last night.
This day had been so frickn' bizarre. First UPS decided to deliver a package @7:55 (ugh). Then FedEx shows up @8:45 ... But as I buzz them in, the electric door buzzer downstairs sticks & continuously buzzes.
I go back to bed ..... I go downstairs @10 & find our front door lock is broken. My landlord won't call a locksmith & my neighbor fixes the door.
At 9pm, I start my microwave & all the power in my apt goes out. Everyone else in my building is fine. The circuit breakers are fine - they didn't go off. I switch them back & forth & nothing happens.
I call ConEd to report the problem. They say its likely the wiring in my apt. I call the the landlord. He will have his 'handyman' look at it ... I ask him to send an electrician. Ugh
THEN ... At 12:30 am ... ConEd rings my buzzer & wants to come in (!!!). I tell him I'll deal with my landlord in the morning ..... Ugh again !
Maybe it's time to move ... Now that I've been left in the dark ! Haha
Here's my experience beginning last Friday.
At 3:30 I felt that something was wrong so I called and a voice recording told me someone would be there soon.
At 5pm I called again and spoke to a woman who said I was on the schedule and she would investigate and call me back. Nothing.
I called again at 5:45 and got another nice woman filled with apologizes who also said she would find out what was going on. Never heard from her.
6pm the phone rang ... TW confirming that someone would be there in 5 minutes.
7pm the TW guy showed up. He changed remotes, was unable to fix TNT as he is not a technician and brought the wrong modem as he was not the guy who was originally scheduled to come out but as he was in my area so they asked him make the service call after working a 10 hour day. He went to his truck and returned with the right high speed modem and set things up.
About TNT - he gave me a paper with a phone number to call the next day between 8am-10pm to resolve the issue. The paper included Saturday so I called Saturday morning. A voice mail said the office was closed until Monday.
Monday I finally got someone to help me - the problem resolved on Wednesday. The woman I spoke to this time, lives in Queens not far from where Aaron Alexis was born and remembers the family as she is his age.
Yup! Things just don't work but are still tied together in the most bizarre ways.
Washington Navy Yard Shooter Aaron Alexis, 34, grew up in Bushwick on the other side of Brooklyn. I read that he was at 9/11 and suffered from PTSD as well as other psychiatric disorders. This describes many people in today's world so be careful if you have to deal with them. The violence is going to escalate.

Yesterday I talked to my fiend Geri who lived most of her life in Chicago until moving to Idaho. The topic was Crime in Chicago today. Geri recalled the city being safer when she lived there but the world has gone mad so things are out of control. Today's story out of Chicago reminds me of the old time gangster days. I sent Geri this video about Chicago.

Nairobi Westgate attack: Uhuru Kenyatta praises unity BBC - September 22, 2013
Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta says the country is united and strong in adversity after a deadly attack on a Nairobi shopping centre on Saturday. The Kenyan Red Cross says 68 people are now confirmed dead, after the bodies of nine hostages were recovered on Sunday.
Westgate shopping mall shooting Wikipedia
On 21 September 2013, unidentified gunmen attacked the upscale Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The attack, lasting until 24 September, resulted in at least 72 deaths, including 61 civilians, 6 Kenyan soldiers and 5 attackers. The attackers held hostages and later engaged in gun battles with Kenyan security forces. Over 200 people were reportedly wounded in the mass shooting. The Islamist group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the incident, which it characterised as retribution for the Kenyan military's deployment in Somalia. Many media outlets also suspected the insurgent group's involvement in the attack based on earlier reprisal warnings it had issued in the wake of Operation Linda Nchi from 2011 to 2012.
