Think you know who San Antonio’s Top 15 Highest Pad Officials are?http://www.bizjournals.com/sanantonio/news/2013/07/29/san-antonios-top-15-highest-paid-city.html

First of all: SA Business Journal, you have some work to do here on your Tumblr. Misspellings & missing hyperlinks? That nonsense will not fly here on the Tumblz! Secondly, I love how everyone on this list is just under $200k/year, and then bam, Sheryl Sculley is, like, HBIC. Also, congrats to Peter Zanoni & Carlos Contreras. Can you imagine those pay raises?! Clearly I need to become a city manager when I grow up.

I never thought I’d be someone making a post like this. But I don’t know where to turn to.

Help, my name is Dana and my boyfriend has gone missing. He never came home last night, and after I called the police they said I had to wait another day. Its ridiculous because I know for a fact he was supposed to come home last night. I’m hoping the Tumblr community can help me.

The pictures above are my boyfriend. His name is Steven Griffin

His height is about 6’1-6’3 and he weighs about 120-150lbs.

He has long blonde hair and blue green eyes. He is German and can speak fluent German.

He has four identifying scars as I posted above. They are big and noticeable.

PLEASE, oh PLEASE. Reblog this. Even if you don’t live in my area.

I live in Florida. In St.Lucie County in the Fort Pierce area. PLEASE. Even if you don’t live in my area reblog as many times as you can. I’m in fucking TEARS writing this I have no where else to turn because the police are unhelpful fucking slobs.

I am giving out a reward for anyone who finds him and brings him back to me safely.

I am willing to give you a good chunk of my life savings that is 2,000 dollars.


I will bump it up to ALL of my life savings if he is brought home ALIVE that is 5,000 dollars.

PLEASE, if you have seen him or know any information LEAVE ME AN ASK HERE ON TUMBLR AND I WILL GIVE YOU MY PERSONAL INFORMATION SO WE CAN DISCUSS MORE.

On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.

Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.

People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.

Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.

she deserves to be re-blogged.
