beta_plus: Lunaville: Marcus Aurelius: The couple not only lavished attention on top officers from MacDill Air Force Base, but cultivated friendships with Florida politicians - even if it meant being pushy

Pushy social climbers. Ugh. She might need a new career now, like full-time attention whore.

The stories of lavish parties and dinners drive me to distraction. If she was determined to spend money she didn't have, couldn't she have thrown a little to, perhaps, the Wounded Warriors Project? The impression I have gotten thus far is that her only interest in high ranking officers was how it might benefit her. I see no evidence that she ever thought to try to bring some benefit to someone else; an active duty person with need or a hurting veteran, for instance. Why would a person fritter away that kind of access without trying to help those in painful situations?

Because she is utterly selfish. Welcome to modern women.


Did someone just have a bad break-up?

her husband, Dr. Scott Kelley, was sleeping at the hospital, "because it's just gotten too difficult to even pull out of our own driveway."

Yeah, that's it. Of course, it could also be that he just found out his wife has been having 30,000 emails worth of cybersex with another man.

Seequinn: http://www.ncsl.org/issues-research/telecom/confidentiality-of-911-ca l l-recordings.aspx

"When news outlets play recordings of 911 calls, they reveal the distressed voices of victims of crime or others reporting accidents. For some victims, the recordings are painful reminders of incidents they wish would remain private, and they may include information about medical conditions or mental health concerns. For members of the media and others, the public has a right to these recordings, which can provide accountability if there are problems with how calls are handled by the agencies that respond to 911 emergency calls.

Six states-Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Wyoming-keep 911 call recordings confidential. Five other states-Georgia, Maine, Minnesota, North Carolina and South Dakota-place some restrictions on the release of 911 calls or the information contained in them."

So it appears that in Florida, and most other states, 911 calls are indeed a form of Public Record.


I've always thought that releasing 911 calls was a bad idea. It's sensationalistic and may dissuade callers from calling right away or from telling the truth.

"I'm scared and cannot believe what my city - in which I have contributed so much of my love, time, money and leadership, has now done to me and my innocent family," Kelley wrote.

I cannot believe that I bribed you and yet I'm still being investigated.

I think the only painful situation she is familiar with is the one where no one is paying any attention to her.

Today she learns that emails to the Mayor of Tampa are public record too.

I'm so glad that the Six Degrees of Tampa Bay Attention Whores game finally reached Bubba the Love Sponge. Hulk Hogan can't be far behind. Somewhere Matt Geiger and his buffalo are wondering how they can get in on it.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: How and why are 911 calls being given to the press, can you just go and request 911 transcripts? I know they can be used in court but I'm pretty sure they're not public record.

FTA:Asked Thursday if he did anything in response to Kelley's complaint, Buckhorn said no. "Public record," he said of the police calls.

Yes, they are. That's why you hear them so often on the local news the day after something happens.
