cambridge,I didn't say I wanted to get into another war but are we not supposed to live up to our promises? There are other methods than war but it takes leadership and planning. Remember, as a member of NATO, any attack on a member country is viewed as an attack on the USA. Unfortunately, Barry is a sorry excuse for a leader and the only planning he does is whether to use a fairway wood or lay up with an iron.

Were you there, terrapinst? Where did I state that I didn't agree with the verdict? I think I did mention the girl's testimony and that it probably swayed the jury. This is our system as skewed as the lawyers have made it! It has nothing to do with the truth, only testimony in the court. Reasonable doubt is a real variable in cases where the defendant can afford a legal team that can shadow the truth. At some point, however, this character will cross paths with someone just as crazy as him

terrapinst,Hey, OJ was found not guilty but everyone knows he did it. The victim's testimony was probably enough to get him off. But, let's see what happens in common pleas court with the more serious charges.

kurt,Let me tell you about E-coli. We belonged to Yellow Duck Park back in the '90s. Parents allowed their kids with diapers into the "lake" that had no chlorination (obviously) and was fed by an underground stream. My three year old son was swimming and he accidentally swallowed some water. We have it on video. Now, about five months before, he had been hospitalized with dehydration from a rotovirus infection that left his digestive tract in a weakened state. From the swimming incident, he developed bloody diarrhea that led to his hospitalization for hemalytic uremic syndrome (HUS) where the kidneys destroy your red blood cells. This was the same disorder people were getting from undercooked beef with e-coli from Taco Bell. Let one of these people have the pediatrician tell them that they are bringing in a hematologist/oncologist to look at your child and see how your heart hits the floor! He spent about a month in Tod's and then had to be fed intravenously for 6 weeks until his intestines recovered. It nearly killed him. These geese unfortunately create a dangerous situation that some misguided people just don't seem to grasp!

IslandMikeYou obviously do not know what you are talking about. In 1994, the Clinton Administration gave diplomatic assurances to the Ukraine that we would insure their borders would be secure in exchange for them giving up their nuclear weapons and drastically reducing the size of their army. Boris Yeltsin signed the agreement on behalf of the Russian Federation. Don't forget, in 2005, soon after Barry became a US Senator he and Dick Lugar traveled to Eastern Ukraine and then went to Kiev where they met with the Russians to further expand the nuclear dis-arming to include even more conventional weapons. So, the US took the bite out of the defenses of the Ukraine in exchange for guaranteeing the security of their border. Typical of the community organizer, he has once again not lived up to his promise!

Racist!?!?!? I'm not the one with the lawn jockey in the front yard! And, what is there to show humility about? That the current inhabitants RUINED a once great neighborhood? Have you driven the area around Kiwatha, especially on Glenwood and seen the rathole houses?
BTW, my mother is now dead but, eight years before she died, she was brutally beaten by a black man that invaded her home. Please don't preach to me until you watch an ER doc stick his finger in your mother's scalp to she if her skull has any cracks.

Is that a lawn jockey in the picture or is it the suspect? This was at one time a very beautiful neighborhood. In fact, Judge Cavalier lived near this home. Now, it is full of cockroaches.

When the trial takes place almost 9 months after the incident, it does makes the public wonder if the fix is in.

There are plenty of angels among us, along with the evil ones. This was a very mean act on some cockroaches part. Even pigs know better and only crap in one corner of the pen. But, not some (sub)humans!

I remember distinctly as a little bot when they built the first Arby's on 224 as my mom cleaned a nearby building in the evenings. The commercial building they tore down on the site had an outside pop vending machine with the bottles horizontal in the old pull slots. Sometimes I went with her and she would give me a nickel for a bottle of Golden Age Cherry or Grape. I was mad when it went away. Amazing how it seems like yesterday. But, like many things in Y-town, it started here and but left town to make it big. I'm glad corporate came back but it would have been nice to do it on 224 even if the original building sells bird seed and feeders.
