The most relevant excerpt from the article: "But, [health professionals] can't do the work or make the choice for you. That falls to you."

Whine all you want about McDonalds and petroleum; it's just noise. Our "county leaders" wil never be the catalyst for healthier lifestyles, any more than they'll get me to watch reality tv.

I wouldn't be so quick to rush to judgement. It may be she's too old. On the other hand, my 76-yr old dad is as healthy as a proverbial horse, and would be entirely trustworthy behind the wheel, if he chose. People should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Captain Sullenberger was just a year from mandatory retirement when he landed that jetliner in the Hudson River.

I always wonder what people think they're accomplishing by voting for 3rd-party Presidential candidates. 3rd party candidacies have never even come close to winning the White house.

Brian Kotowski 2 years ago on Craig minors arrested Wednesday night for destruction of mailboxes

This site has a nice selection of curbside mailboxes: http://www.mailboxes4less.com/curbside_mailboxes.aspx

Of the 10 displayed on the first page, the average price = $200 x the 29 they destroyed = $5800. I hope the judge isn't shy about imposing a 'worthless punk' fee over and above the restitution & court costs they'll have to pay. I'd love to see the final tally in the neighborhood of ten grand. Better hope Mickey D's is willing to hire reprobates to sling hash, you little a$$wipes.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - “I lie, I steal, I sell drugs, I don’t follow the law. ” That’s the sign one 14-year-old was forced to wear out in public Tuesday. http://www.wlfi.com/dpps/news/indiana/Copy_of_Teen-forced-to-wear-sign-as-punishment_4037015

Stunningly, someone called the cops to complain.

My dad was a small town cop in the 60s. One night, the hellion son of one of the town's wealthier residents tied one on and boosted a car. Junior used the vehicle to take out all the mailboxes, fire hydrants, and dumpsters he could, before crashing the car thru a storefront.

Late that night, Junior's daddy showed up, laid a $100 bill on the desk, and asked my dad & his partner for the key to Junior's cell. After assuring Senior that Junior wouldn't be going anywhere, my dad & his partner agreed.

Senior let himself into the cell and beat the living snot out of his kid. They never had any more issues with Junior, after that.

Good on the CDP for indicting the media's role in fanning the flames. I can't stomach those talking head shouting matches on cable "news."

I'm skeptical, however, that those who deliberately seek out sources of information from across the ideological divide will experience any appreciable shift in their own opinions. As a conservative, Democratic Underground and Daily Kos are regular visits for me. They haven't managed to convince me that I'm wrong about anything.

Brian Kotowski 2 years ago on 'Toward the Mountains': Cultural fusion, community focus of Hawaiian bakery coming to Craig

Rebelgirl:

It's an expression that pisses off a lot of Hawaiians. My mother was born & raised there. I've spent a great deal of time on the islands. Wanna pick a fight? Tell a Hawaiian he ain't "stateside."

And if Mr. Quintero wants to guarantee my patronage, he should sell some poke. Yum!

So the legislature is going to throw money at it. I'm sure it's a miracle that any of our ancestors managed to conquer the orthography and survive. And God forbid that parents should take any responsibility. My own ancestors, on both sides of the family, were immigrants who had to learn English as a second language. Miraculous, I tell ya!
