The latest madness from the UN tops them all, as we see in this report:
Venezuela was supported by the usual characters, such as Cuba. Let’s remember that the Chavez-Maduro regime bought a lot of these votes with generous contributions over the years.
This vote happened weeks after UN Human Rights High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile, blamed the Maduro government for using public food aid for political purposes. It also reported human rights violations, such as torture and abuses by Venezuelan security forces.
We learned that the UN may run out of money soon. It appears that some member countries have not paid their dues.
Frankly, I hope that the UN does go broke and ceases to exist. Putting Venezuela in a human rights council is Exhibit A that this is a worthless organization.
Toni Fritsch was 60 when he died in Austria. He was born in Vienna in 1945.
Today, soccer style kickers are all over the NFL. It was not always that way.
The New York Times remembered Toni:
Toni Fritsch, a former soccer player for Austria's national team who was discovered overseas by the Dallas Cowboys and became a record-setting National Football League place-kicker, died Tuesday in Vienna. He was 60.Toni was a very popular Cowboy.
Peter Klingelmueller, a spokesman for Rapid Vienna, the soccer club on which Fritsch played for 14 years, confirmed Fritsch's death. The Austria Press Agency reported that Fritsch collapsed at a restaurant and died of heart failure.
