Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, Falls out of Tree and Suffers Concussion

Keith Richards, 62, suffers a concussion by falling out of a palm tree.

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards suffered a mild concussion while vacationing in Fiji and was flown to a New Zealand hospital for treatment, a band spokeswoman said Saturday.

Media reports said Richards fell out of a palm tree and remained hospitalized in Auckland.

62? That’s all? Some how I thought he was older. The real story may be that he was actually able to climb the palm tree in the first place. Some might say Keith has been acting like he has been suffering from a concussion for years. I guess Keith Richards did not get the memo from Mick stating that it was the “A Bigger Bang” world tour they were about to begin, that was not the name of the thud that occurred when Keith hit the ground.

All kidding aside, the Rolling Stones Rock. Even in their later years they do a good job in concert; however, miss the good old days of Mick and the Boys in concert. Some of the best live shows ever.

My in the News Again for all the Wrong Reasons is in the news again. This time a Florida teenager posted a countdown post of the hours until he blew up his school, Sonrise Christian School. Not a very smart move as Brian Russell Hall, 18, finds himself in more trouble than he bargained for.

A senior at the Sonrise Christian School was arrested Friday after authorities began an investigation into his posting a countdown of the hours until he blew up the school on the popular “My Space” website, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The arrest of Brian Russell Hall, 18, of 815 Wedgewood Lane, Lakeland, stemmed from word the school received from a visitor to his website about the threat. The school, in turn, contacted the Sheriff’s office.

Investigators went to the school and obtained his consent to search his person. They say they found a set of brass knuckles and a knife.

When will these teenagers ever learn that there are consequences to their actions?
