Whitey Bulger to face judge for sentencing

James "Whitey" Bulger, the convicted Boston mobster whose rise and fall was as convoluted as any Hollywood script, goes before a judge Wednesday with prosecutors calling for him to be locked away for life.

The 84-year-old Bulger was found guilty of racketeering, extortion and money laundering in August after a rancorous two-month trial, with a federal jury linking him to 11 killings. Federal prosecutors have urged District Judge Denise Casper to hand down a life sentence for the longtime fugitive, calling him one of the city's "most violent and despicable criminals."

      We shall see who loses house/senates seats in 2014. I'm feeling pretty confident that lying to the public will not sit well with the voters. PERIOD.

    Father Lewis woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

    So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.

    As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Lewis headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

    This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and
    everyone else was in church!

    At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed,"You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?"

    The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."

    Just then Father Lewis hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.

    IT WAS A 430 YARD HOLE-in-ONE!

    St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"

    The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?"

    Two bachelors, Larry and Frank were out to dinner. The conversation drifted from office, sports to politics and then to cooking. “I got a cook book once” said Larry. “But I couldn’t do anything with it.” “Too much fancy stuff in it, huh?” asked Frank. “You said it, Larry replied, nodding. “Every one of those recipes began the same way: “Take a clean plate…”
