Man dies trying to photograph tsunami

Yes this guy would definitely win the Darwin Award. What in the hell was he thinking? Warnings don't seem to get through to some folks. I feel bad for his family but he probably would die running with sicissors if this had not happened.  (Mar 12, 2011 | post #3)

Ryan's restaurant

Dave T, I am with you. Just not my choice of places I would go back to if I was starving to death. I don't do Golden Corral either. Just too many people touching too much of the food. I like a nice dinner at a restaurant, with a menu and waiter, quiet would be nice. There are some good places but you have to hunt them out these days.  (Feb 7, 2011 | post #10)

johnson city hospital

You folks are priceless. First of all, the lady with the kick, and RN? Please say it isn't so. Back in the old days that was a 4 year degree, and you could type and write. Are you still on drugs? They must have suspected something to ask to look in your purse. Why didn't you say no, then they would have brought in a drug sniffing dog. I am on board with the person who knew mama was in the basement and was screaming for help. Sounds like someones drug induced dream, or Mom is sipping moonshine again on the QT. I prefer not to go to Johnson City for my medical care but had surgery a couple weeks ago (not elective) at Franklin Memorial, and I was well taken care of, the nurses were great, but I talked my way out the day after my surgery as, I promised to be good, not do anything that isn't approved, just rest in bed, and do whatever the doctor ordered. Things went perfectly, great doctor, super nurses, and whatever those drugs were, worked GREAT!! The Lord willing and the creeks don't rise, I don't want to be in ANY hospital ever again. EVER AGAIN. I just got the feeling I was captive, tubes going in and coming out of places I don't care to mention. Yuck. As soon as I got home, I rushed to wash the clothes I had on, washing any cooties off. And I took a long shower, making sure I got clean. Just in case any bugs hitched a ride home with me. Get well, or keep well. Flash nurses do tent to talk loud at night, but that seems to be everywhere. I am hoping the hospital will send me a questionaire, I will tattle. It isn't worth calling about. But they are out there talking and laughing, which seems they could go into a un occupied room to talk about their love life, dates, etc. Little did they know I could hear and understand every word they were saying. Every word, and none was medical talk.  (Nov 13, 2010 | post #14)

Marie Osmond says son was depressed before suicide

Well I will pipe up with my 2 cents. I saw part of the interview, waaaaa waaaaaaaaa.... I think it is very conventient for Marie to blame drugs and depression. Please. There is far more to the story than that. The poor kid was raised in a home where everybody was busy doing their dog and pony show to fill the Osmond coffers. Marie probably was not the best Mom, being gone so much doing her (whaterver it is she does)thing. I got a glint of soemthing that made me wonder if he (her son that killed himself) was gay and the family just turned their back on the kid. Then he started drugs, and so on. That would explain why he would say he has no friends. In a family with a zillion kids he had not one friend in the large family. Such a shame. What I am saying is, there is more that dear (wear too much make up and hair) Marie is talking about. If she is going to get on TV and spill her guts she should sound more credible.  (Nov 12, 2010 | post #2)

Why people are so racist against Muslims ?

Folks, this has been going on for almost 2000 years and isn't going to be settled any time soon. The extremists just make it bad for middle of the road folks that observe their religion and don't want to take over or kill anyone. I am a Christian, and personally don't care to covert any muslim to Christianity. It is their choice. I just wish cooler heads would prevail, and the wackos would just slither away.  (Nov 12, 2010 | post #102)

Cameron Newton

Auburn Tigers Football: What If Cam Newton Knew Nothing a...

I don't believe that the kid didn't know what was going on. And his minister father should be ashamed for lying about not being involved. This kid is being used by the school, his family and God knows who else. If he doesn't know, then he is too stupid to even be in college. Now what is his GPA? Oh I see in a minus figure, so sorry! Cam better start practicing "would you like fries with that?" for his upcoming career! I think the way to get Auburn's attention is to put their football scholarships on hold for a few years, and lets see them start gratuating a few football & basketball players. I sure wish I had a Heisman vote this year:-)  (Nov 12, 2010 | post #2)

dont know what why a couple words in my comments are underlined. Hummmmmmm??? Guess topix doesn't like folks panning commercials using my own rating system for some folks.  (Oct 2, 2010 | post #3)

Osmond producer shown the door

They are so over exposed. Marie for her endless commercials for getting skinny on a diet. I would get skinny too if they were paying me. Wearing too many big hair expensions and too much make up. Yuck! Donny for wearing too much make up and too old to be doing his act from 30 years ago. 3 thumbs down in the Grandma A rating system. I think Marie should go home and take care of her children.  (Oct 2, 2010 | post #2)

Rick Sanchez fired from CNN after mocking Jews, Jon Stewa...

I like Rick, and would watch him for a bit in the afternoon. I wasn't aware that he didn't know his craft. He read the news just like all the rest of the news readers. I think Jon Stewart baited him. Stewart should be ashamed of himself. I didn't hear the interview, but what I have heard it doesn't sound out of order. I don't think it is being a bigot to say the Jews run the TV, Hollywood money. But I think the folks that are so up in arms are just jealous. And wasn't Rick just don't a radio interview on talk radio. And what company gives the person the gate, in so much haste. Could there be more to the story. Like anti-latino sentiment in CNN's corporate office. Don't know. But that some hack of a ?comedian? being a jerk, is par for the course. A bigot calling another man a bigot. Hummmmmmm...... I hope Ric finds a good even better job, I am sure he has a family to support, and along what that, I also hope Jon Stewart is out on his arse at his network, whatever that might be.  (Oct 2, 2010 | post #40)

Elizabethton Star

All I can say is if the paper gets any smaller they will be able to print it on a 8 1/2x 11 sheet of paper. (front and back of course) Some of the articles are interesting, but we saw a horrible accident one day a couple years ago on Broad Street, and there wasn't a thing in the paper about it. Hummmmmmmmm There was a bad fire and there was nothing in the paper about it. So who is deciding what is news and what they are told not to print. Maybe it is the same old cadre that expects the train to roll into Elizabethon and bring back the rayon factory. Yea right! I know all the "news" before the paper comes out as they read the web pages I do, and gleen their news from the same place. AP, Reuters, etc. I do enjoy the ads, as I try to give my business to a local businesses if I can. It would be nice if we had a customer friendly hardware store.  (Oct 2, 2010 | post #14)

Holloway suspect sought in Peru murder

Well he stepped on his "you know what" big time. I hope he spends the rest of his life in a flithy bug and rodent infested prison, with no Father to help him out. Ohhh Tooo Bad!! This guy is a prime example of a rich kid who expects the world owes him something. Let Peru give it to him, big time. Can't wait. I feel so sorry for the girl and her family and the fact that if Aruba had kept this nutcase locked up, this girl would not have been killed. I sure hope this guy is caught soon.  (Jun 3, 2010 | post #56)

Two Walmart employees arrested, accused of calling in bom...

It isn't over yet kids, hold on. If the FEDS step in, and call it terrorism, who knows these folks could get life in prison. Now woudn't that be great? ! ! What baffles me is what were they thinking? Did they actually think they would not get caught, arrested? What did they want to happen? It takes a certain type of scum to call in a bomb threat. It would seem that we have not heard the end of this story. I am sure if the police, FBI search long enough they will find something to keep these miscrieants in jail for more than just a slap on the hand. Drugs, failure to pay taxes IRS, back child support, delinquent property taxes, warrants from other states, j walking, child abuse, wife abuse, something. It just seems that someone that would call in a bomb threat might just have something they should be in jail for. Littering? Possibly  (May 15, 2010 | post #4)

Wal-Mart

Stop shopping at walmart if you don't like their corporate practices. The folks that accept working for low wages accepted that wage, then, why do they complain about it? Get an education and get a BETTER JOB!!! What has walmart done to local workers? It seems to be a place for folks who did not get out of school to at least have some sort of job. They don't have to dress up, or clean up even, they can go to work in almost anything but their jammies. walmart is sort of the slumlord of retail. The largest but not necessarily the best in their purchasing practices or employee relations or pay. We can live without walmart, if we try. They will pack up and leave if they open the doors and no one comes. If there is something I want and walmart is the only place that has it, I don't want it anymore.  (May 15, 2010 | post #15)
