1.White Sox’s Tony La Russa calls Giants’ Gabe Kapler’s national anthem protest ‘not appropriate’
According to Fox News, Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Saturday that he does not agree with the decision of San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler to protest the national anthem in the wake of a school shooting in Texas that left 21 victims dead.

“I think he’s exactly right to be concerned…with what’s happening in our country,” La Russa said Saturday evening, ESPN reported. “He’s right there. Where I disagree is the flag and the anthem are not appropriate places to try to voice your objections.”

The day before, Kapler said he will skip out on the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” in the pregame ceremony “going forward.” He also clarified his decision in an op-ed saying he is “not okay with the state of this country.”

The White Sox manager said protesting the national anthem is an insult to the men and women who served and died in the U.S. military to defend it.

DML: At least there is one sane person left in Major League Baseball.

2.Plane with 22 people on board missing in Nepal’s mountains
The AP is reporting that rescuers on Sunday narrowed down a possible location of a passenger plane that went missing in Nepal’s mountains with 22 people on board while flying on a popular tourist route, officials said.

The Tara Air plane, which was on a 15-minute scheduled flight to the mountain town of Jomsom, took off from the resort town of Pokhara, 200 kilometers (125 miles) east of Kathmandu. It lost contact with the airport tower shortly after takeoff.

Police official Ramesh Thapa said there was no information on the turboprop Twin Otter aircraft and a search was underway. An army helicopter as well as private helicopters were looking for the plane, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal said in a statement.

Rescue efforts have been able to narrow down a possible location for the flight, but had not been able to visually identify the plane yet, a Tourism Ministry official, who was not authorized to speak to the media, said on condition of anonymity.

DML: I’ll drive thank you.

3.Start-up investors are warning of dark days ahead as boom times are ‘unambiguously over’
CNBC reports of a huge warning. Slow your hiring! Cut back on marketing! Extend your runway! The venture capital missives are back, and they’re coming in hot.

With tech stocks cratering through the first five months of 2022 and the Nasdaq on pace for its second-worst quarter since the 2008 financial crisis, start-up investors are telling their portfolio companies they won’t be spared in the fallout, and that conditions could be worsening.

“It will be a longer recovery and while we can’t predict how long, we can advise you on ways to prepare and get through to the other side,” Sequoia Capital, the legendary venture firm known for early bets on Google, Apple and WhatsApp, wrote in a 52-page presentation titled “Adapting to Endure,” a copy of which CNBC obtained.

Y Combinator, the start-up incubator that helped spawn Airbnb, Dropbox and Stripe, told founders in an email last week that they need to “understand that the poor public market performance of tech companies significantly impacts VC investing.”

DML: This is the United States of Joe.  Any person who voted for this man is a fool.

4.Texas school shooter Salvador Ramos’ sister is serving in the US Navy and rushed home to be with their grandmother in hospital after he shot the 66-year-old in the face
The Uvalde school mass shooter has an older sister who is currently serving in the United States Navy, has learned exclusively.

Marisabelle Ramos, 21, is three years older than her dead brother Salvador, who was responsible for Tuesday’s massacre at Robb Elementary School.

‘My granddaughter Marisabelle is in the Navy and currently stationed in San Diego, California’ her grandfather, Rolando Reyes, exclusively told

Reyes said Marisabelle rushed back to San Antonio to be with her grandmother Celia after receiving the tragic news.

‘She’s with her grandmother in the hospital and staying in San Antonio for the time being.’

A GoFundMe set up to raise funds for Celia, who was shot in the head by Salvador but survived, has so-far raised just $230 of its $30,000 target.

DML: She shouldn’t get $230.

5.California Gov. Gavin Newsom tests positive for COVID-19

California Gov. Gavin Newsom tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, a day after a high-profile meeting with the visiting prime minister of New Zealand.

Newsom has mild symptoms and will remain in isolation at least through Thursday and until he tests negative, his office said in a statement. The Democratic governor plans to work remotely during that time.

His office said Newsom, 54, will begin a five-day regimen of the Paxlovid antiviral.

The governor’s office said it has notified the delegation of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. The two leaders met in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on Friday to announce a climate change partnership. Ardern tested positive for the virus earlier in May.

The governor’s office said it does not know how Newsom contracted the virus. He is vaccinated and received his second booster shot this month.

DML: Another example of how the vaccines are useless.

MY PARTING WORDS:  If you want to boost the immune system, if you want to improve sleep, if you want to diminish the pains and aches, and if you want to curb the anxiety, then what should you do?  I assume some people will foolishly look to Gavin Newsom for wisdom, and in doing so they roll the dice on a guy who makes terrible decisions each and every day.

  1. I agree with DML, the grandmother shouldn’t get any money. She was not giving any kind of direction for her grandson. He needed mental help and she didn’t do anything, even try to reach out to friends or authorities of her concern about how he was acting. She has some blame for not paying attention to the problem.

    • How do we know that she wasn’t trying to help her grandson move in a better direction? He’d only been staying with her off and on for the for the last few months and from some reports I’ve heard she was trying to get him on a different path. I blame this whole thing on the mother not the grandmother. And speaking of parents where’s the father he has a responsibility in this too unless he died by no fault of his own.

    • I disagree with you. The grandmother was a victim too. There is no information that she raised her grandson or that she may have tried to help in getting him mental help. People are too quick to blame someone WITHOUT ALL THE FACTS! My advice is to do the CHRISTIAN things and donate to ALL VICTIMS! May God be with all the victims and their families. 🙏

  2. I’m shocked by your answer DML. WOW. Do you know the whole story? Where’s your compassion for an elderly person gunned down by a mental case. Maybe she tried helping him in some way and he just didn’t want to hear it. Maybe she was fearful of him. There are too many facts that aren’t known. Question where did he get the guns and how was he able to purchase them? Guns aren’t cheap. Anyhow shame on you DLM.
