Inmate No. 15000-030 is released into the frigid January morning at 8:46, a gray custodial suit of sweatpants and long-sleeved thermal clinging to his immense frame, a bushy salt-and-pepper beard wrapping around his face, a guard escorting him with a high-powered rifle slung over his right shoulder. Most politicians would appear hopelessly—dangerously—misplaced in a federal prison. Kent Sorenson is not most politicians. Standing over six feet tall and weighing every bit of 270 pounds, with 11 tattoos and a cleanshaven head, Sorenson is probably the only state senator to have ever been mistaken for a member of the Aryan Brotherhood. That happened during his first stop on the penal turnpike, the Metropolitan Correctional Center (“The MCC”) in Chicago, an administrative facility with maximum-security lodging where the “fish” was viewed warily by fellow inmates. A white supremacist, they figured, sizing him up. It didn’t take long—as soon as … [Read more...] about Kent Sorenson Was a Tea Party Hero. Then He Lost Everything.
Man walked into a bar jokes
John Carlisle Detroit Free Press Published 3:40 p.m. UTC Jun 10, 2018 THE UPPER PENINSULA – Randy Kluck liked to drink. If he wasn’t drinking wine on his front porch at his house he was drinking liquor on a barstool at some dive bar in Sault Ste. Marie, where he moved to be close to his son Kevin, who came here to attend college. The two were such buddies that Kevin refers to his dad by his first name. “He really was always my best friend,” said Kevin, 36. “So I just think of him as ‘Randy.’ ” Six years ago, they were drinking on the porch, and Randy came up with an idea — how about they spend the summer together on an epic road trip through the Upper Peninsula and write a book about all the amazing bars they’d stop at along the way? There would be so many nights they’d get to spend side-by-side on barstools, so many long drives along the empty highways, so much to tell each other, so much … [Read more...] about Father, son bond writing U.P. bars book and it becomes a cult classic

Gallery: Incumbent invites challenger to spend a day with him at Georgia's Capitol ATLANTA — Colton Moore speaks the language of the southern politician. He refers to his own generation as "the young folks," our current era as "this day and age." He calls a politician "a gentleman" and a gathering of politicians "a meeting among gentlemen." He makes observations such as "The Appalachian is a special breed. They're rugged, independent." And his voice: It's deep and smooth, like an old radio announcer's. It travels through halls and takes command of conversations. This isn't an accident. Moore, 24, trained his voice. He sits in his room alone, verbally sprinting through tongue twisters. "Betty-Botta-bought-a-bit-of-butter-but-she-said-this-butter's-bitter," he chants. "Around-the-rough-and-rugged-rock-the-ragged-rascal-ran." "Tommy-Atatamas-took-two-Ts-and-tied-them-to-the-top-of-two-tall-trees." Moore thinks hard about how to use this voice. He considers how to best approach … [Read more...] about Incumbent invites challenger to spend a day with him at Georgia’s Capitol [photos]
