Oh keerist I can see it now! No more hot coffee at the airports or federal buildings or schools for fear that a boiling pot of decaf is a WMD. Where does this c--p end?

Nice move writing about it on the Internet, so kids world wide can get the same idea... Very smart move.

If the writer of the article is not native-born, my apologies. Nevertheless, I must remark to the writer and to the publisher: DUDE!!! Okay --- DUDES!!!! This article, as an item of journalistic expertise, um, sucks. I am enrolled in HIGH SCHOOL and can concoct better sentences. This is a mighty brief article, so there is no excuse for the lack of editing/proofreading/use of brain/what have you.

SHEESH.

Ah, I just have to ask...does anyone edit the articles that you post?
"But here in Magnolia police think their robbery worked the store inside alone."
"A small prize to walk away with the crooks can scare even blind their victims."
These aren't even sentences - they're meaningless strings of words. Come on - show some professionalism.

Low-lives like this need to be off street and in WORK CAMPS at least 10 years or until they have brains enough to respect their fellow men.

it just goes to show that criminals honestly don't care about who, or how they injure innocent, hard working people just to get a few measly dollars to spend on their illicit drugs or alcohol

"Maybe 200 bucks according to police. A small prize to walk away with the crooks can scare even blind their victims."

Professional, coherent writing and proper use of grammar? What that is?

Hot drinks are dangerous. I'm shocked that they are so readily available.

Very hot drinks are assault drinks and need strict control. Nobody really needs a hot drink that is so hot.

It's especially shocking that illegal coffee is making its way into Philadelphia and other cities. No wonder crime is rampant.

Enlightened mayors need to join the Mayor of New York City to lobby the federal government for a ban on coffee and other hot drinks.

Will these horrors never cease?

I wish that people would stop picking on this incompetent reporter. Every true American supports Freedom of the Press except for you neo-cons and cons who don't understand what makes this country great.
