NFL free agent Greg Robinson jailed in Texas on pot charge

Greg Robinson 27, El Paso, Texas NFL offensive tackle Greg Robinson remained in a West Texas jail without bond Wednesday after federal agents said they found 157 pounds (71.21 kilograms) of marijuana in a rented vehicle in which he and two other people were riding. Robinson, 27, of Thibodeaux, Louisiana, and Jaquan Tyreke Bray, 26, of La Grange, Georgia, were in the El Paso County Detention Center after federal authorities charged them with conspiracy to possess marijuana with intent to distribute it. Both were held without bond pending an initial appearance before a U.S. magistrate judge. If convicted, both could be sentenced to up to 20 years in federal prison.It was unclear from jail and federal court records if they had attorneys. According to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Robinson, Bray and an unidentified third person were driving from Los Angeles to Louisiana in a rented sport utility vehicle on Interstate 10 through a remote section of West Texas. When they passed a Border Patrol agent with a drug- sniffing dog, the dog detected the scent of marijuana. The agent radioed ahead to the patrol's checkpoint in near Sierra Blanca, Texas, 83 miles (134 kilometers) southeast of El Paso.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: June Re: Text editor Dear Webby I need a text editor, that is more reliable than WordPad and that does not try to impose fonts or formatting. Whatcha got? June Dear June I have been using NoteTab since the mid 90s. You get tabs like browsers have nowadays, and you can copy back and forth between tabs. It produces clean text, that you can use for web pages, but you can use HTML with it, without it showing as web pages. You see the code. It also has a clip board and outlining, though I have never needed that. There is a way to strip HTML codes with one click, and a really fast search/replace. I like it! Have FUN! DearWebby

An Indian, a black man and a Polack share an apartment.
The rent is due soon and all three are unemployed, so
they all go out to look for a job. That evening, they met
to discuss their day. The Indian says to his roommates,
"Me pissed me no find no job." 

The black man then says, "Shit man, I ain't hooked up 
no job either!" 

The Polack chimes in, "Hey, I found a good job! The owner
said all I had to do was show up on time at 8A.M. and I
could go to work!" 

Knowing that the Indian woke really early and watched the
sun rise, the Polack asked the Indian to wake him at 6:30
so he could get to work on time and then went to bed. The
black man liked to play practical jokes and talked the
Indian into helping him play one on the Polack. 

While the Polack slept the other two painted his face 
black. The Indian woke the Polack at 6:30 who then
got dressed and went straight to his new job. When he got
there, he told the owner he was ready to go to work. The
owner said he didn't know what he was talking about. The
Polack reminded him of his promise to put him to work if
he showed up on time. The owner said that the guy he
hired was white. The Polack replied, "I am white". 

The owner said, "No you're not, you are black, go look in the mirror!" 

The Polack went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror and 
exclaimed, "That stupid damn Indian woke up the wrong 
guy!"

The Boston
Symphony was performing Beethoven's Ninth. In the piece,
there's a long passage about 20 minutes during which the
bass violinists have nothing to do. Rather than sit
around the whole time looking stupid, some bassists
decided to sneak offstage and go to the tavern next door
for a quick one. After slamming several beers in quick
succession, one of them looked at his watch. "Hey! We
need to get back!" "No need to panic," said a fellow
bassist, "I thought we might need some extra time, so I
tied the last few pages of the conductor's score together
with string. It'll take him a few minutes to get it
untangled." A few moments later they staggered back to
the concert hall and took their places in the orchestra.
About this time, a member of the audience noticed the
conductor seemed a bit edgy and said as much to her
companion. "Well, of course," said her companion, "Don't
you see? It's the bottom of the Ninth, the score is tied,
and the bassists are loaded."

A man in
England is driving with his wife at his side and his
mother-in-law in the back seat. And the women just won't
leave the poor guy alone. His mother-in-law says, "You're
driving too fast!" His wife says, "Stay to the left!"
After several more orders from both of them the man
breaks down and barks at his wife, "Who's driving this
car -- you or your mother?"
