Closing singer at memorial identified

WHATEVER faults we ALL have in life... only those standing in the spotlight get judged.. those who stand in the dark shadows are ashamed of themselves.. those who hide completely are hoping to never be found out.. people LOVE to judge other people until they themselves are being judged.. then they get mad.  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #25)

Michael Jackson

I see MJ as a lost person.. beat in childhood(it happens), wears on your brain forever, you think its your fault.(I know) MJ sang his heart out & danced away the pain. His drug use I think led to peculiar acts with children & acting immature.. as with drinking alcohol people act stupid, I've not done drugs so I have no idea HOW they make you act, but I'm sure not maturely. MJ was a good person.. check out his biography and his awards & trophies. But most of all MJ was uniquely different then most and his difference is how he will be remembered, like Elvis, George Burns,Ed Sullivan,Andy Kaufman, & others.. "remember when" how they talked, how they acted.. R.I.P. MJ  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #1)

I had just started a job in Pop & Docs at Decatur, and the night of Memorial day weekend I left my job, I swerved to avoid hitting about 4 people I could barely see them because their clothing was dark.. I think they were drunk & walking home, because it was a mad-house at Pop & Docs that night... I met a cop after that swerve & I supposed he saw my lights swerving so I got stopped. Asked if I was drinking tonight & I replied NO. I work in the kitchen & I'm going home. Then the cop said, hmm okay well just a minute, and he was gone for what seemed close to 5 minutes. When he came back, he said "well ma'am, your red cellophane covering is ripped from over your back lights.. I thought THAT was a big deal? But I just wanted the damn ticket, my joints were killing me, & I just wanted to go on home. He wrote me a ticket for it & then sent me on my way... I turned the corner (almost forgetting the stop sign) to get to the toll bridge to pay to go back into Iowa. The toll bridge guy said " your lucky he didn't find more wrong with your car" (meaning my windshield). It is shattered on the passenger side with 2 lines going across the drivers side.... I was shook up by then, then on the Iowa side after crossing the noisy bridge I nearly hit a big fat raccoon running in front of my car.. THEN I saw deer eyes out the side catching reflection from my headlights. Needless to say, by the time I got home I was a nervous wreck. I quit the job. My car is 20 yrs old, I planned on going back to work there, but realized the next thing the cop would get me for was my windshield.. Neb patrol is out to write tickets for anything. Remember the cops we had from the 40s, 50's & 60s 70's?? Now THOSE were the great cops!! The ones nowadays are out to see how many they can give tickets to for whatever reasons.. they are not the kind to assist an old lady or old man across the street.  (May 28, 2009 | post #2)

Tornado Hits Scout Camp; 4 Dead

It should have been built better.... now they are re-building out there... the families of the victims were devastated, as were all the little towns near by, and the firemen, deputy's and other area people who picked up garbage and hauled off the trees, limbs, debris etc.. and ALL the Boy Scouts & families shared in the sorrow of their friends demise.. I never went to see the destruction, I haven't seen the re-building either.. I live about 10 miles northwest of the destruction of the camp..  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #83)

Caylee Anthony's grandparents to chat with Oprah

evidence is what law enforcement work with.. I'm sure the jurors will weigh the good with bad and ugly .. Cindy & George are just reaching out to people, I doubt Oprah says much.. Oprah don't care anyway, she is worth zillions.. One more media setting for the family... The family know Casey killed their grand daughter/niece by all the evidence... they just are in that parent-denial stage (our daughter wouldn't do THAT why she loves that child).... but in 1 second of disgust, rage & torment, jealousy, & hatred towards everything ---shit happens).  (Apr 15, 2009 | post #15)

Caylee Anthony's grandparents to chat with Oprah

true they do have serious mental issues.. mental illness is handed down , inherited.. and it is sad Caylee died as a result of all this .. Casey learned to lie because of Cindy, Casey learned to fight because of Cindy, Casey did not want to keep Caylee but her mom pushed her to keep the beautiful child, Cindy was selfish in her thinking.. & Cindy "" could have --should have"" adopted Caylee out-right in the very beginning, but the better thing to do because of however the child was conceived & evidently not a proper way: rape, incest, whatever... bringing hardship into the family, trying to cover up by telling lies about the father figure.. I feel CINDY is the background for Casey's life being tortured & ruined.. {Casey should have given up Caylee for adoption without her mom getting involved,Casey was an adult to make adult choices by age 19. .. but easier by others said then done ... (I have a controlling mother, I was young and dumb & I allowed her to ruin my early life so I understand this complicated tortured situation, even though I understand everyone who doesn't...& sees it as brutal murder at the hands of Casey ONLY...Casey said in jail.. " my life is has been ruined" it HAS at the control of her mother..  (Apr 15, 2009 | post #12)

but we do not know the complete story & to be truthful we should never judge anyone else, because we may fill their shoes someday, the table could get turned and we could be in sort of same problem. and on TV and in the media.. and lash out.. and support a family member.. I think the Anthony s know what happened, I think Cindy is fully responsible for her daughters actions for 1) she molded that person..raised her from day 1 to present, spoiled her rotten, let her get away with murder all those years when she should have sat her down & revised Casey's acts because she copies her mother 100%..snaps her gum, flirts with the law.. changes the subject.. etc.. and 2) Casey WANTED to give away that child & was forced to keep it by her mothers controlling way.. In a strange way I feel it is Cindy's misdemeanor for pushing Casey to do something she was definite in not wanting at all.. & tried to love Caylee but something in her brain cells just kept nabbing at her..and doing the drugs & boozing it up & partying just got out of control.. & with that along with the fighting with Cindy & strangling Casey for stealing was it? as we have heard by the media, Casey lost control.. and took her pent up anger out on sweet dear Caylee, so we have heard by the media.. who knows you see// but the law does know & soon we all will too. the law does not spill the whole can of worms to the media..  (Apr 15, 2009 | post #11)

Morgan was an ass to them.. they got defensive as any parent would to protect their child.. and YES they should have not smirked or not poked their finger at him.. or threatened him.. but it happened.. this needs closure.. before another murder gets involved, gosh shouldn't say that here but it could happen..  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #9)
