Jun 27th 2011 8:11PM She should have refused to return the Mercedes to him. He gave it as a gift & that makes it her property legally. Even if he did not sign the title over to him legal case law supports her as the owner because he has publicly said he gave her the car. She should begin a tell all about his quirks of insanity - she would make millions.
Mar 24th 2011 5:29PM I live in Orlando, moved here in 1996, and enjoy it. Like many people I moved here for health reason, to get away from the cold winters. Just as in any town or city in the USA there are sections of the city that are crime ridden, sections that wealthy-rich driven, and sections that the middle class live in. Like most cities there are sections in which Asians group, sections in which Haitians or S. American people group, and sections in which others group. My small sub-division is a mixture of white, black, Asian, Hispanic, Haitian, Puerto Rican, Brazilian, and various European ancestry people live. I am white, Austrian-Dutch-and a little N.E. USA Indian ancestry. I get along great with my neighbors.
No matter where you live in the USA you live in a great place. That is, if you allow yourself to view the area with a positive attitude. If you go thru life viewing things with a negative attitude then you could be rich, live on a 20 acre estate, have servants for everything you can imagine, be of great health - and yet you would believe you have a miserable life and blame it on where you live.
Jan 24th 2011 2:58PM I am 57 yrs old and firmly believe that schools should teach children how to read cursive. I use cursive often to write notes. Unfortunately, my three children have a difficult time reading cursive. This has led to them turning to me to translate papers their grandparents had left behind. It has also gave them problems in reading historical manuscripts. My grandson, 7 yrs old, cannot read a word in cursive. I have told him and his mother I will be changing that. There is so much history (to include family history), so much poetry, short stories and other written material in cursive that will be left out if we allow our youth to avoid learning cursive. Cursive is very easy to read and write. Even for typing on a computer there are thousands of cursive Fonts to choose from.
As for typing, are the teachers going to teach how to type on a full size keyboard, on a notepad keyboard and/or on the various forms of keyboards that are found on the hand held devices. Personally I believe the full size keyboard is a mus because virtually every business now use desktop computers. If the student wants to learn how to use the keyboard on his mom's phone, he can do that on his and her time. In fact, with the large number of cursive fonts available for computers the students can learn to read cursive while learning typing, thus combining two tasks into one.
Jan 11th 2011 4:25PM This would be a bad law & probably unconstitutional. I have 3 (now grown) children and, under this law, would have lost my driver's lisence because of my third child. My first two children readily and happily went to school each day, however my third child literally hated school and went truant more days than he attended. Most of these truantcies were after we personally walked him into the school and often handed him off to the principal/vice prin. We took him to see a counseler - got no where, we took him to see a child psychologist - got no where. He was put on drugs to try to control his anger towards school, but he often refused to take or pretended to take them leading to no results. Now grown he has gotten his High School degree by attending a university course and is going to a university to get a degree.
Punishing parents for something they cannot control once the child has entered the school is rediculous. Instead the school administration, counselers and courts should attempt to determine why the child is so resistent to attending. Between the school, doctors, counselers and courts there might be a reasonable answer to the problem. Making it more difficult for the parents to get the child to school, to doctors, etc. plus making it difficult for the parent to get to work is just plain stupid.
Dec 29th 2010 4:49PM I agree with Rich about how fares have to increase with the rise of fuel costs. However, I believe the airlines shud do this more realistically by eliminating the baggage, roundtrip, etc. fees and charge true ticket prices. Passengers hate hire ticket prices, but they hate these nit picking fees. Other airlines, especially Southwest, love to create ads in magazines, newspapers and on the TV espousing how much better they are because they do not nit pick the passengers while demonizing those airlines who charge these fees.
Nov 3rd 2010 4:06PM You sound like the same type of complaint happened against you, Bill. Sexual harassment is not "crap", it is fact and it happens every day throughout the USA. It is also against the laws of every state and the federal gov't. You would have the woman to have to suffer it until such time as one of her harassers gets physical and assaults her, maybe even raping her. Bill, you are an asinine jerk.

Sep 15th 2010 4:53PM a blood alcohol of 0.0 is not achievable for more than 90% of humans because foods we eat produce naturally occuring alcohol in our blood stream. Buy that is moot as to this stupid pilot who has just thrown his career away.
Sep 15th 2010 4:50PM He wasn't drunk by US standards, but he was in the Netherlands and subject to their laws & he was drunk under their laws. Regardless, FAA & the airline's rules forbid pilots & copilots from drinking within 8 hrs of a flight & he broke those rules. He was fined by the Dutch, now he can be fined by the FAA & have his license pulled, and be fired by the airlines. Stupid, stupid, stupid on his part.
Aug 27th 2010 9:45PM So basically, 'rjslawnmow', you are admitting that you are a bigot, a homophobe. This show would have done no harm to your children, but your bigotry can do endless harm to them and your grandchildren if your children emulate you. As for the Blue Ranger, under today's law he could sue the hell out of them all & walked away a millionaire.
Aug 24th 2010 4:27PM Her father & stepmother imposed the punishment. However, we do not know if her biological mother is still alive and whether they have shared custody or the father has full custody. For such a harsh punishment to be imposed, if there is shared custody, her real mother should have been consulted. And then there is the fact that punishing her may also be punishing the children she babysits because her being angry about the punishment may be passed on by her - intentially or unintentially. I think this was an ill advised punishment.
