What kind of crappy schooling taught you to judge another university based on the actions of a few athletes?

OMG,the Mercury can't announce a course of action until it has all the facts?... Aren't these facts: that she got arrested and she blew a .17? And it's her third arrest? Those seem like facts. She needs serious help, not a fat paycheck and role-model status.

I think it's kinda like "double secret probation"...only it involves freakishly skilled athletic women that look like Beagles...

I do not see where in the article it mentions that this is her third arrest. Do I hear a little jealousy in some of these remarks? Sounds like it to me. Some people have, lots don't.

2. Most of the hijackers were trained on U.S. military bases.
3.bush knew or the impending attacks on America. He did nothing to warn the american people because he needed this was on terrorism.
4. Most of the 9-11 hijackers were issued visas for "national security purposes" aka they were CIA "assets"
5.inn the early 1980's bin laden worked with operatives from u.s. intellegence ,to battle the soviet army in the afghan war.
6.Bin Laden was a CIA asset under the code name Tim Osman
7.Bin Laden was on the CIA payroll
8.the U.S. govt paid 300million dollars to the bin laden family for military training facility in Afghanistan.

I've heard that the Bin Laden family is related to the Osmand family, and that Osama, and Donnie and Marie are third Cousins.

And, the CIA was very active in promoting the Donnie & Marie show because it planted subliminal messages related to the worship of Muhammed.

This was at the time George 41 was the CIA Director. George 41 then pulled the trigger on Osama's plot for 9-11 so George 43 could look like a hero.

Beware of the new world order!!

And, Dianna T., please stay off the sauce.

When are these drug abusers going to get the message that they are a menace to society? Lets hope it's before they add to the total of deaths they cause on the roads. Want to scare yourself? Put "alcohol brain damage" in your browser and read what that drug does to people before you defend alcohol use.

I hope she doesn't get too drunk and have intercourse with random guys like alot of nba play do. Having a baby at this point would ruin her carreer...unless she wanted her offspring to play basketball, then she would have all the time in the world to teach them.
