I have nothing against Wolford. This is about results.If the university's goal is to have the Penguins competing for a national championship on a regular basis, then Wolford is not getting it done. So the school has to decide how important football is. If it's vitally important, then they have the resources to make it happen, and it's time for a new coach. If they keep him, then they will be making a statement as to the importance of football, whether that's their intention or not.

Unless the driver can prove extraordinary circumstances, it's pretty unlikely that he/she is going to get a slap on the wrist. The charges will probably be manslaughter due to negligence, plus whatever lawsuit that will likely be filed.This is a sad, life altering event for everyone involved: The person who lost their life, plus the lives of his family.

As part of any investigation, they're required to collect evidence so they can prosecute these people.So that means taking pictures of the animals in the condition in which they were discovered. They will use these pictures and the statements from the people at the house when they take the case to a judge. Hopefully the judge will be as horrified as the investigators and impose the maximum sentence possible.

I'm beyond fed up with these people. I think that this entire "fiscal showdown" was nothing more than crass manipulation and political positioning for the next election. Democrats can claim "victory", while Republicans can claim they "fought for what was right"
Does anybody really believe anything either party says?
I have completely tuned out this mindless cacophony of blame and shrieking doomsday predictions.
As I see it, they live in an isolated world, almost completely disconnected from the lives of the people they claim to represent.

These wanna-be reptile breeders really irritate me. They seem to think that they're some sort of rebel-heroes.I keep a single small snake in my house as a pet, which I bought from a reputable, responsible dealer. Most breeders and dealers spend a great deal of time, effort and money to keep and care for their animals. But all it takes is two idiots like this to create a great deal of negativity surrounding the hobby, especially in regards to venemous snakes. They should be treated as criminally neglegent at the minimum.

How about reading the article, not the headline.Here's an excerpt:
"Although September sales were dramatically low for the Cruze, it wasn’t entirely unexpected. Analysts and forecasting firms anticipated a dip in the U.S. auto market after sales surged through the first eight months of this year on pent-up demand, higher consumer confidence and improving economic conditions.Sales fell at General Motors, Toyota, Nissan and Volkswagen in September, an odd month that appears likely to snap a longer 27-month streak of gains for the U.S. auto industry."
Labor Day weekend is typically strong for auto sales, and this year was no exception. But because the holiday came early, the auto industry counted all of that weekend’s sales in its August tallies, which cut into September’s numbers.

Remember, the reason for the existence of these lists is to do one thing: Generate website hits. That's pretty much it.

I did a lot of partying in my 20's, but I never understood the desire to get high to the point where it destroys the body. Ultimately it comes down to choice. At some point during the addiction process, a person makes the choice to keep using even though they know they have a problem. Heroin, meth, etc causes addiction among the poor, middle class or rich alike. It's a worldwide problem, and this area is no different.

As soon as I saw this story, I couldn't wait to get to the comments section. And as usual, I wasn't disappointed!
"southsidedave" - Most parents are dropping their kids off at school before they head to work. In my case, it save me at least 30 minutes of waiting time. If I drop my daughter off at the school, I''m not waiting for a bus to pick her up. My wife is also "too busy working", as she gets up an hour before my daughter and I to go to her job.
So absolutely, we're too busy working.

Would you really like the world to be exactly the same as it was when you were growing up?
