I think these photo's were shopped. How could the person go from being on the side, to a head on shot? Also, I would think that the owl would have its claws opened at that moment, not clenched.

Charges were dropped against the Ricin suspect. That, and the Zimmerman case and even the Amanda Knox case should tell us that we shouldn't rush to judgement.

Can someone tell Michele Obama to STFU with her I feel like a single mom, b.s. If she were a single mom, she'd also be working and providing for herself and her children.
Barack goes out and makes all the money to provide every god damn thing it takes for their family to live and survive and she's out their minimizing this contribution and wallowing in self pity.
...FYI....Michelle Obama was a Harvard educated, working Attorney without Barack.....something tell's me, single motherhood would'nt have been that much of a hurdle for her.....

Yes, and the Ricin guy wasn't on videotape. And the Ricin guy didn't call his uncle to ask for forgiveness. And the Ricin guy wasn't found with Ricin strapped to his body. And the Ricin guy didn't throw Ricin at the cops as he was chased. And the Ricin guy didn't hijack a car and tell the victim he was the Ricin guy.

Oh, and you saying we shouldn't rush to judgment is a joke. It's pratically all you do.

That is so cool! I did see on another site that he admits he placed the mouse there to bait an owl.

That is a ridiculous statement.
I have quite a few older brothers and I am the only girl. I have repeatedly been told by my parents that I was harder to raise than all my brothers combined. And I wasn't even a bad kid!!!

What is your favorite experience so far?
I only speak Chicago English which barely gets me out of cook county

The most amusing was watching an intersection from the hotel window in turin. It wasn't a 4 way stop, it was a 4 way yield and no one wanted to yield. Someone would get in the middle and just sit until others stopped.Crazy drivers there.

The best was when some nice man would lift my suitcase up the 3 steps to the train or up or down the staircases at the station. Trains are a snap with no luggage or not old like me . Barcelona was my favorite.

I dipped my toe in a month or two ago. The downtrodden are upset that Aldi's isn't more like Whole Foods.

It started that way. It has been picked up by the RJF DuPage crowd. Friendly advice: if you are inclined to dip a toe again, use a pseudonym.

Why would Aldi be anything like Whole Fodds? Aren't they 2 totally different kinds of stores?

I have no doubt girls are easier to raise. Many folks feel that way.

I'm pretty sure if she had to do everything she is ALREADY whining about doing now AND on top of that put in 8-10 hour days working as an attorney, that would be a hurdle.

She not even working and she can't stop herself from b1tching about how awful she has it, making it sound like it's a hurdle and wha, wha, wha, wha ing about it.

Exactly, but they don't get it. They think Aldi's should provide top notch service and high quality goods at the lowest possible price.

Who are "they"? I must have missed a link or a convo somewhere. That's nutty thinking.

I shop at Aldi a lot (interspersed with Publix and Winn Dixie, depending on what I need and where I am). The erason they have lower prices is BECAUSE they are "no frills". I LOVE when I can get mushrooms for 75 cents. But I wanted some the other day and they didn't have any. But I still got my blueberries for under $2, my milk for under $3 and a 24 pack of water for $2.29! I can fill a cart for hardly anything!

When I need fancier stuff, I head to Publix!

I can only speak anecdotally, but my parents and grandparents, who have raised both, disagree with that statement.

There are issues and challenges with both.
