Big Freedia Postponed Due To Health Reasons

Massive bummer of the day/week/century: Wesleying has received word that bounce queen Big Freedia is unable to leave New Orleans due to health-related reasons. As such, tonight’s show has been postponed for a date later in the semester, to be announced. (And here I wasted my whole morning doing warm-up flexes for Freedia’s exclusive bounce workshop. So it goes.)

In the meantime, just watch this video twelve times in a row tonight while banging your head against a wall.

BREAKING: Previously Arrested Hospital Patient on the Lam

If you haven’t had the chance to check your email (because, come on, who reads email anymore?), take note:

Middletown police are searching for a patient who left Connecticut Valley Hospital on Wednesday morning without authorization.

A spokesperson for the state Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services said Adam Rattiner, 37, left the hospital around 10:30 a.m.

He is described as white, with salt and pepper hair, hazel eyes, 5’9″ inches tall, weighing 219 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt and a Yankee hat.

This individual has been previously arrested on the Wesleyan Campus; anyone with any information should call Middletown Police at 860-344-3200 or Wesleyan Public Safety at 860-685-2345.

Though it is uncertain “whether Rattiner was a court-committed patient” (pesky privacy laws), according to the MiddletownPatch (yeah, I don’t really know what that is, either) “he was not under the jurisdiction of the state’s Psychiatric Review Board, which oversees patients deemed criminally insane by the courts.”

Police were recently sighted making the rounds in Olin. In other news, PSafe should really invest in a twitter account…
