There are not called 'vanity plates' without reason. Regardless of the nature of the message theyRead More are used to convey, Americans and several other nationalities, including -- somewhat surprisingly -- Scandinavians, are permitted to sport personalized license plates. Is this really necessary at all? Aren't bumper stickers sufficient to express everything from vanity to insanity?

The worst part is, now, for the second time in how many years, the tax payers are going to wasteRead More money defending against this lawsuit (some guy wanted athe1st or something a while back) Fire the nit-witts who are doing these veto's so that we can save their salaries and the legal costs and put it towards our sadly lacking educational system.

I understand that with success comes notoriety. So while I am a not surprised by the level ofRead More interest you all have in that family, I am surprised that it is not just left at that. I am surprised that people from this area would resort to posting elementary school comments. I thought we were a little more refined than that. So many comments about the father, his family or employees and not one comment about if the kid is ok? If the father specifically did something to you and you want to come out and share your experience of why you think he’s this or that, then go ahead. But to sit here and ambiguously post comments about things you heard, that have no real impact on you, makes you look childish or jealous

We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs.

The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.

Decaturette back in the days before collapsible steering shafts it was a bad idea to wear a seatbeltRead More because during a head on collision the steering shaft would act as a spear and run you through. I never wore a seat belt my old MGA or TR3. However, this is no longer a problem because of modern design and engineering. Some people will hem and haw about being t-boned at an intersection and the harm that a three point harness can do. I personally know many people who have had their lives saved by seat belts. I always wear mine. They should afford children the same opportunity to protect themselves. A 25 mile per hour head on collision with another vehicle travelling at 25 miles per hour is like a 50 mile per hour collision. So I do not buy the argument about shorter distances nor do I buy the article about lower driving speeds. What can is cost to have simple lap belts installed in a school bus? Are we that greedy?
Becky April 14, 2014 at 04:03 pm
I think the real reason they don't install them is that it would raise a whole other level ofRead More liability -- like that then they would have to keep the seatbelts in good working order, and maybe enforce that people wear them. Could I sue them because another passenger flew out of their seat and hit me. Etc, etc.

@Dan Cox - I agree with your posts. Particularly the last couple. We are just getting concealedRead More carry permits issued in Illinois, much to the distress of our unbeloved Mayor and Governor, and hopefully it will have an impact on reducing crime. The real problem is that the media hypes all of the nuts, like the shooters at Columbine, Newton, etc. and hide the proper use by those who have stopped crimes (or belittle them or try to claim about how these incidents are so rarer than deaths caused by the accidental use by children [e.g. Bloomberg's new commercials], etc.). The central thing in this story is the black nurse who ran out with her gun and stopped the beating and probably saved the motorist's life without regard to his race. Funny, you didn't notice that in the Patch article - you had to hunt around, a link by a poster on the first Patch story on this subject went to a non patch source).
