CBS cancels 'As The World Turns'

OH! SAY IT AIN'T SO! My mother is also spinning in her grave and she got me hooked! Whenever I get laid-off I use the time catching up, and it usually only takes one or two days. This old world just stopped turning!  (Jan 18, 2010 | post #4)

Debt-laden Dubai offers to host U.N. headquarters

They just featured Dubai on the "Amazing Race" and showed all the wealth brought in by the oil companies, featuring the luxury hotels and that humugous ski-ing complex they built for mega-millions, and now they're crying poverty??????? Give me a break!!! It's one of the richest emirate countries!!!  (Jan 17, 2010 | post #4)

Cat called for jury duty

They accuse everybody else of being racist. Anna should show up at court with the cat and all her paperwork and let them sort it out. Have the news media meet her there and see what happens. I agree that the cat would probably do as well or better than the average juror, but could it understand "plea bargain"?  (Jan 10, 2010 | post #47)

Netflix to delay delivery of Warner's latest DVDs

I agree with you, I rarely will buy a DVD (at 20-25$ a pop for new releases) unless I've seen it and like it and want to see it again. I've tried Blockbuster and their service just isn't up to the same par as Netflix. So I will wait the 28 days, then wait another few weeks for it to come off the "long/short wait" list anyway. Still waiting for "Night At the Museum 2".  (Jan 8, 2010 | post #16)

Time Warner Cable rates going up 5-10%

I find it odd that just as I'm seeing new ads on TV that say "special interest groups" are trying to lobby to restrict "free access TV", I'm also hearing about TWC raising their rates. Could it BE any more obvious who those groups are? They really DO think we have no clue, because they know we'll keep paying and paying for our mindless entertainment as far as it will go. Truly amazing.  (Jan 6, 2010 | post #49)

Drunk walking more deadly than drunk driving

Lol! Drunk talking can be VERY dangerous! But I HAVE known people who drive better drunk than most people do sober! But they couldn't walk for ****.  (Jan 2, 2010 | post #29)

Drunk walking more deadly than drunk driving

All it means is that you could get "pulled over" and ticketed for drunk walking since you are putting yourself in danger--like reckless endangerment of yourself--and public intoxication. Drive up the issuance of tickets and paying fines, etc, etc. At first I thought it was a joke, but it's NO JOKE.  (Jan 1, 2010 | post #15)

Mailmen to deliver aid in case of biological weapon attack

Because the post office doesn't do that anymore--it's all on the EBT card electronically, no more paper checks, proved to be unreliable and too dangerous to the carriers, and people could claim "it must have gotten lost in the mail". I don't see how carrying medical aid to each one of us is going to be carried out, I can envision the mail jeeps getting hyjacked and held for ransom, military escorts for each one so again it will come down to the army, I'm not sure they thought this all the way through. People will panic in that type of situation, anything and everything could happen.  (Dec 31, 2009 | post #29)

Barn burned to ground in Kendall, three horses inside

Interesting that you know what an EBT card is--most people who don't have one wouldn't know. Channel 8 reported at 11 p.m. that there had been eight horses in the barn and only the three couldn't make it out. That's something, anyway.  (Dec 31, 2009 | post #10)

Perfume made out of beer?

Thought they already had this, every woman's perfume smells like beer after he's had a few! Must be, cuz the girls don't really get better looking!  (Dec 29, 2009 | post #10)

EMTs suspended after refusing to help collapsed pregnant ...

Wouldn't that be "gainful " employment? Altho "gameful " might be more fitting.  (Dec 28, 2009 | post #119)

Walking Ghost Caught On Tape?

Altho' this story is over a year old, the controversy goes on forever. I believe that a person's spirit, the thing that makes you, you, and different from me, goes on. Where it goes is another controversy, but if there wasn't a unique spirit in each of us, we would be like animals from the same litter--no discernable difference between our personalities. It MUST go somewhere, it doesn't just stop, it CAME from somewhere, so I believe it lives on. I wuld really hate NOT to believe that.  (Dec 28, 2009 | post #14)

Police kill man after hostage situation in Hilton

You guys can't be serious! The last thing a cop wants to do is fire his gun--just think of all the paperwork! However, you point a gun at a cop, you will get shot and probably killed--it's your choice. They didn't put the gun in his hand and say "Do you feel lucky?". This was a clear case of suicide by cop, no matter why Mr. Miller snapped. Don't blame the cops for his actions.  (Dec 22, 2009 | post #155)
