Sigma Alpha Epsilon: We're Banning Pledging
Sun Mar 9, 2014
I pledged and joined a fraternity in 1975. Yes, we had the paddles (Thank you sir! May I have another?), the cleaning, the humiliating stunts, etc. But we didn't have anything that was dangerous. The experience led to a tremendous bond among the fraternity brothers. If they can replace i …
Transgender Woman Sues CrossFit Over Competition
Sun Mar 9, 2014
Do the female hormones, "sex-reassignment" surgeries, etc. reduce "her" height, bone structure, strength of tendons attached to muscles, size and ability of her heart, size and maximum oxygen exchange capacity (VO2max) of her lungs, etc? NO! The Olympic committee may allow such people to compe …
Family Eats LSD-Tainted Meat, Goes Home With a New Brother
Fri Mar 7, 2014
What I can't figure out is why someone would waste the money on the drug just to pull a prank. I wonder if mom thought she was shaking Adolph's Meat Tenderizer on it, not realizing another family member had hidden LSD in the container?
Hot Pockets Included in Massive Meat Recall
Tue Feb 18, 2014
Looking at the batch codes and "best before" dates, it seems to me these would be things you bought months ago and stored in the freezer if you still have them, so most people would have consumed these products by now. I bought the "Seasoned Crust" (regular) Hot Pockets 9 oz Philly Steak & Chees …
Utah mom buys up all 'indecent' T-shirts at PacSun store
Tue Feb 18, 2014
She needs to go into a couple dozen other stores before she'll put a dent in indecent shirts. I taught at a 2900-student high school until 2006 and we had a supply of replacement tee-shirts and sweat shirts for students to wear when they came in with indecent stuff or things with controversial …
Why Taxpayers Will Bail Out the Rich When the Next Storm Hits
Tue Feb 18, 2014
I would love to give the wealthy the benefit of the doubt here in terms of paying too much, but when several entire wealthy condominium buildings combined are paying less than one single-family home, something's wrong. Then again, we haven't had a real democracy for awhile and many of America's supp …
Oklahoma Pharmacy Won't Sell Drug for Missouri Execution
Mon Feb 17, 2014
In reply to: Bill-1313973 #7 That's the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard. Many liberals favor capital punishment, including me, though I'm actually a centrist the far-right calls a liberal so they can fool know-it-alls into thinking they're conservative, not extremist. Most Americans …
Flooding Worries Pour In as Snow Storm Dies Out
Sun Feb 16, 2014
In reply to: goldminor #6.2 I'm a scientist an I think we are in trouble because ignoramuses can't be bothered to study the research yet think they know-it-all, and we're condemning our descendents to hell on earth because we're too greedy to protect the planet. I just hope than when those des …
Soda Warning Labels Proposed In California
Fri Feb 14, 2014
These labels are ridiculous and say that with the following background: I'm a scientist who co-wrote my county's 12 high schools' Nutrition Science curriculum and was obese, having lost 61 lbs in the past 15 months. The labels sound like they're made for political campaigns, not real reasons. If the …
By the Numbers: Wicked Ice Storm Takes Massive Toll on South
Wed Feb 12, 2014
The hypothermia cases are scary. If you've got no backup to your furnace but own a car, make sure the gas tank's full - it's a warm refuge if necessary that will last a long time and you can even place blankets, pillows, etc. over the windows for insulation if days are needed. My furnace stopp …

Grandparents pitch in with cash to help raise grandkids
Both are equally important
I'm retired, 9 years older than my sister and 15 years older than my brother and, with both parents deceased, I'm like a substitute grandparent. Because I'm able to do so without crimping my lifestyle, I pay for my nephew's music lessons and instruments and take them to their classes.
