NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - A 75-year-old barber was jailed Tuesday for investigation of killing a urologist in his exam room, but police have not yet released a motive. Stanwood Fred Elkus of Lake Elsinore was arrested following the Monday afternoon attack and held on $1 million bail, according to the county jail website. Elkus is suspected of killing Dr. Ronald Franklin Gilbert, 52, of Huntington Beach at the medical office in Orange County. Police said they found Elkus and Gilbert in a second-floor room after several 911 callers reported six or seven shots fired. A gun was found at the scene.

I know it is a terrible tragedy for the doctor´s family and I apologize for any insensitivity, but why does the premise sound so much like the beginning of a bad joke?

A barber walked into a urologist´s office one day...

It seems Mr. Elkus will be given a nice warm cell and 3 squares a day, and the best medical and dental care in the state, until such time he dies from natural causes.Not too bad for a 75 year old person who was all alone. Too bad he had to go to this extreme to get help.

Don´t you hate when that happens?

The suspect (soon a defendant) will explain that this was to be expected...

as his gun went off in a case of premature ejaculation...

which was what he was there to be treated for...
so the doctor should have been ready to dodge the bullets.

(Perhaps the doctor should have been wearing a Monica Lewinsky blew dress... ?)

Beginning with registrations due in January, the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will assess a $100 annual fee on all electric vehicles registered in the state. Legislation approved in 2013 established the fee to make up for the fact that gasoline taxes are not collected for these vehicles. According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, about 1,600 all-electric vehicles are currently registered in the state. Hybrid vehicles that use a combination of gasoline and electricity are not subject to the fee.

On December 31, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) – al-Qaeda´s affiliate in Iraq and Syria – took over the centers of Ramadi and Fallujah, the two largest cities in Iraq´s Anbar province. A week later the terrorist movement still controls Fallujah, the site of titanic street battles between al-Qaeda and the U.S. Marines in 2004. The center of al-Qaeda´s self-declared caliphate is just 35 miles from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and only 25 miles from the runway where airliners land in Iraq´s capital. Fallujah is an iconic location for other reasons. In 2004 , 122 U.S.

Girls may run the world, but Beyoncé is making it known that they don´t have the paychecks to show for it. The singer has written an essay for The Shriver Report, a media initiative led by journalist and former California first lady Maria Shriver, that aims to document and discuss societal trends that impact women. "We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn´t a reality yet," she writes in "Gender Equality Is a Myth!" from the 2014 special report entitled, "A Woman´s Nation Pushes Back From The Brink," which can be downloaded for free until Jan. 15

CHICAGO — More than 1,000 requests for concealed carry gun permits are pouring in each day in the nation’s last state to allow the practice, sparking concerns among Illinois law enforcement officials that they might fall behind on weeding out applicants with a history of violence. The Cook County Sheriff’s office says it already has identified about 120 applications it plans to contest since the online application process was opened to most state residents Jan. 5. Chicago Police Department officials, locked in a battle to control high-profile gang violence, say they, too, are worried about keeping up with the flood of

President Barack Obama will on Tuesday discuss a topic he is familiar with from his childhood – American women living in economic insecurity and trying to be breadwinners and caregivers at the same time. Raised by a single mother who was described as someone who struggled to pay the bills, Obama on Tuesday will meet with Maria Shriver, who is reporting on some 42 million women who she says live “one single incident – a doctor´s bill, a late paycheck, or a broken-down car – away from economic ruin."

WASHINGTON -- Hillary Clinton and Sen. Claire McCaskill once had such hate the Missouri Democrat said she feared being in an elevator with the former first lady, a book says. "I really don´t want to be in an elevator alone with her," McCaskill told a friend in remarks quoted in the forthcoming "HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton." The tension between the two Democrats came after McCaskill said on NBC´s "Meet the Press" while she was running for election that former President Bill Clinton was "a great leader, but I don´t want my daughter near him," authors

The recent changes to health care benefits are taking their toll on senior-level staff morale on Capitol Hill, according to a new survey. Nearly 4 in 10 chiefs of staff and district directors recently surveyed by the Congressional Management Foundation said they would likely be looking for a job outside the office within the next 12 months. “The elimination of staff’s traditional health care has been a complete disaster,” said one senior staffer, responding to the survey. “If you wanted a legislative branch run by K Street lobbyists and 25-year-old staffers, Mission Accomplished.” CMF President and CEO Bradford Fitch said the nonpartisan nonprofit

"It´s not tolerable for anyone in government to play with the people´s needs that way, " DeBlasio said at an unrelated press conference at a school in the Bronx on Thursday. "It´s not professional, it´s not mature, it´s absolutely immoral." DeBlasio and Chris Christie had dinner on Dec. 28, the New York Post reported. A Post source said Deblasio wanted to "play nice" with the Governor. Meanwhile, the state senator who represents Fort Lee has called for

There has been much debate recently over the merits of extending unemployment benefits — last week, the Senate reached cloture on a bill to do so for three months, and will vote on the bill tonight. Even just among conservatives, the debate has been robust: AEI economist Michael Strain has argued, on the Corner, for extending the benefits, while others, such as Senator Rand Paul, have argued against such an extension. But the debate hasn’t focused on the academic literature on the subject – including an important, surprising new paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), perhaps the most

Secretary of State John Kerry drew a chuckle from Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov when he presented two large Idaho potatoes as a gift during a meeting in Paris on Monday. Kerry said Lavrov had mentioned Idaho´s most famous export the last time the pair met. Russia´s foreign minister seemed to appreciate the gesture, smiling and remarking that the gifts were "impressive." The delegations were in Paris along with Syrian opposition groups ahead of U.N.-led Geneva II peace talks in Switzerland next week.

In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Before Chris Christie’s first scandal devolves into an obsessive quest to prove who knew what, when, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the wonderful, quintessential New Jerseyness of the incident itself. What happened, roughly, is this. On August 13, Bridget Anne Kelly, one of Christie’s three deputy chiefs of staff, sent an email to David Wildstein, a Christie confidant serving as an executive for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls much of the transit infrastructure of northern Jersey. Kelly said that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Some speculate that the precipitating

Monday For many years now, I have endured a mild skin disorder, rarely fatal. I usually am monitored by a fine doctor in Rancho Mirage. But I wanted a dermatologist near our home in Beverly Hills, so I asked around and got a reference for a Dr. Wang, as I will call him. (Not his real name.) This afternoon, I entered his tiny waiting room, introduced myself to the young women behind the counter and smiled. The women asked me to fill out several forms, which I did and handed them back.

The Maricopa County Republican Party in Arizona formally censured Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Saturday evening by an overwhelming 1150-351 vote, Breitbart News has learned. Maricopa County is Arizona´s most populous county and includes Phoenix within its borders. The official GOP body´s rebuke undermines McCain´s reelection chances should he decide to run for the Senate again in 2016. “As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our Party, platform, and its candidates,” the formal censure resolution reads. “Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders.

Inside a cramped third-floor office of Hillary Clinton’s once-bustling presidential campaign headquarters in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, Va., Kris Balderston and Adrienne Elrod put the finishing touches on a political hit list. It was late June 2008, and Hillary had dropped her bid for the presidency earlier that month. The war room, where her brain trust had devolved into profanity-laced shouting matches, was empty. The data crunchers were gone. The political director had drifted out. A handful of Hillary’s aides had already hooked up with Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign in Chicago. Balderston’s salt-and-pepper beard gave him the look of a

I don´t think the Tea Party is going to seize upon Fort Lee and the George Washington Bridge as their defining difference with Christie. In fact, I think he´s handling to this [sic] – being straightforward,

U.S. investigators are looking into whether embattled New Jersey Governor Chris Christie misused about $2 million in Superstorm Sandy relief funds for an ad campaign that put him in the spotlight in an election year, a lawmaker said on Monday. Already enmeshed in a scandal over snarled traffic at the George Washington Bridge, Christie, a rising star in the Republican party, is now being audited by the Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone Jr., a Democrat. The inspector is focusing on a federally financed $25 million Jersey Shore marketing campaign that

Black water gushed onto horrified members of the international press awaiting the arrival of Hollywood glitziest stars dressed in their finest gala attire. The press fled from the spill as the Beverly Hills Fire Department rushed to the scene to clean up the smelly mess in front of Hollywood´s famous Beverly Hilton Hotel. An E!
