Teacher writes a book, authorities go nuts

Yesterday, 09:50 PM



Patrick McLaw, 23, an 8th grade language arts teacher at Maryland’s Mace’s Lane Middle School, has been placed on leave after authoring “The Insurrectionist,” a fictional book that chronicles the largest school massacre” in history, WBOC-TV reports.
McLaw penned the book and its sequel, “Lilith’s Heir,” under the pen name “Dr. K.S. Voltaer.”
The “futuristic” school shooting described in “The Insurrectionist” takes place in 2902, according to Amazon:



Phillips said McLaw was taken in for an emergency medical evaluation. The sheriff would not disclose where McLaw is now, but he did say that he is not on the Eastern Shore. The same day that McLaw was taken in for an evaluation, police swept Mace's Lane Middle School for bombs and guns, coming up empty.
"There will be a Cambridge Police Department presence at Mace's Lane middle school for as long as we deem it necessary," Wagner said.
"I think that the various police agencies that we have, working in conjunction with the board have a handle on the situation and I think we're going to have a safe and happy opening day of school tomorrow," Phillips said in an interview Monday with WBOC..

What situation?!?

This actually makes it sound more boring than it probably would be.

Not like the daily draftkings stuff, like season long leagues. I'd like a reputable site. Like a $200 league or something.

NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com...

The NFL reportedly asked Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay, their top choices to play the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show, if they would be willing to pay the league in order to secure one of the biggest gigs in the world, according to The Wall Street Journal.
When reaching out to artists, league representatives asked some acts if they would exchange a headlining slot for a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour earnings, or make another type of financial contribution to the NFL. Sources told the Journal that the suggestion, perhaps unsurprisingly, "got a chilly reception from the candidates' representatives."
While the NFL doesn't typically pay artists who perform during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, they do tend to cover travel and production expenses, which can be upwards of a million dollars. Considering the Halftime Show has only grown more popular in recent years — this year's performance with Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers drew 115.3 million viewers, compared to the 112.2 million who watched the game — it makes sense they'd want a piece of the pie.


Criticize Goodell if you like but at least he is consistent!




How The National Football League Can Reach $25 Billion In Annual Revenues
This year revenues for the National Football League will be somewhere just north of $9 billion, which means the league remains the most lucrative in the world.
But NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, wants more. Much more.
He has stated that he wants to reach $25 billion in annual revenues for the league by the year 2027. It’s an incredibly ambitious goal, especially for a league that many in the media believe is in decline. (It’s not. See this story.) But it is also a very achievable one when considering what the league has in store for the future.
