Apr 19th 2010 6:38PM Sometimes I am amazed by the narrow-mindedness of people (yes, you), and especially the author of the article. I am sure this product is intended for, and will be marketed to, daycare centers, doctor's office and pediatric emergency waiting rooms (my son just used one last week, took his mind off the pain while we waited), and other institutions of that nature. THEY surely can afford the price tag, which most likely comes from the unit's child-friendly and durable design encasing delicate electronics that would not otherwise stand up to a toddler/small child's abuse. Really, people, stop attacking people and how they choose to parent their children without thinking about the context of the situation.
Nov 16th 2009 4:26PM Apparently this man may be well-read. His question, "Who is John Scott/" may be a direct take on Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged", the book whose question "Who is John Galt?" is central to the story. I won't bother with a summary, look it up on Wikipedia. If you can read it, do so. If you cannot, get a dictionary and a tutor. The people I find making the most nonsensical-intolerant-politically exteremist-racist comments are the least educated, ignorant bottom-feeding looters, the destroyers of the human dynamic. If you read the book, you'll know what I mean.
May 8th 2009 8:08AM Sorry, "clery" was supposed to be "clergy"
May 8th 2009 8:03AM A few words about stereotypes: Is EVERY politician dishonest? Is EVERY male clery a pedophile? Better put, is EVERY southerner an inbred, illiterate, confederate flag waving, gun-brandishing redneck? Is EVERY person of color a criminal or welfare-draining baby machine? Whenever I read this type of post after a news story, I see the extreme "right" come out and bash the "left", and ignorant, biased people make assumptions absed on stereotypes. Every cop is not a thief, abuses their power, or is a bigot. I am a retired cop who spent every minute on my job in the NYPD doing the right thing. I never took a free cup of coffee, forget about a bribe, and yes, it was offered frequently. I went above and beyond to help crime victims, troubled kids, abused wives and kids, and fellow cops handle job stress. Many cops, especially in high-crime areas, are angels with bulls-eyes on their backs. Most deserve alot better treatment than we get, but only ask for a decent paycheck to take care of our families, and the self-respect at the end of the day a person gets from helping another human being.
Nov 21st 2008 10:36PM AND Oprah gave away $50 MILLION DOLLARS last year to people who really need it, not regular audience members. People hit hard by real tragedy. And she is rich because of business savvy, and production projects she is smart enough to finance. Not everything comes from her show salary. Anyone who speaks against her is usually racist or just jealous.
Nov 21st 2008 10:32PM What most people do not know is that most, if not all, of the items given away on the Favorite Things show are DONATED by the companies they come from. There was a behind-the-scenes show about it maybe last year or the year before. The staff calls up the finalists for the list ask asks them if they have enough stock or vouchers for the product and have it there in time for the taping. Most companies will jump at the chance because of the enormous "free" advertising. I know this for a fact because my company is featured in the Dec "O" magazine as one of Oprah's Favorite things, and we are getting MANY new customers
Aug 29th 2006 8:39PM Why don't the doctors in hospitals wash up?? Two simple words: "God Complex" They can barely fit through the damn doors with their egos, how dare we mere mortals ask them to lowetr themselves to our level by washing their hands?!?! The next time I am hospitalized or one of my family members is, I will not hesitate to tell the doctor to wash his or her hands before touching the patient.
Apr 28th 2006 12:08AM It's nice to think that the one and only Al Pacino is at a laptop like me typing in his responses to the dreck and drab opinions of armchair critics. But naive I am not. And get off of George Clooney. He is a great actor, maybe not the best ever, and he is hunble enough to agree. But one thing that Pacino, Pitt, and Clooney have in common is that in this age of gross excess in Hollywood, they are using their financial and popular clout to better the live of those around the world who are not fortunate as you or I. CHildren who have never seen a computer or cell phone, and are homeless and hungry, have new hope because of their humanitarian efforts. I wont spend a dime to see a Tom Cruise movie and further fund the aliens-on-earth Scientology psychos, but the Oceans gang will get my money at the box office, on DVD, and a check to help the Ugandan and other worthy causes Clooney and Pitt are trying to raise awareness about. And in the words of the great Sean Connery in The Untouchables "Here endeth the lesson."
