Dec 21st 2012 8:52AM An excellent comment. I have written similar words in dozens of comments. The "Antis" constantly distort the words "assault weapon" and "high powered." I always wonder whether it is out of ignorance or a deliberate intent to deceive the uneducated.
Dec 21st 2012 8:49AM I cannot imagine how AOL justifies its statement that it is not a political website. Virtually every political or gun related headline comes complete with an inflammatory and often misleading headline drafted by the AOL staff. Twisting every story so it fits AOL's agenda is not exactly being non-political. I am puzzled by AOL's statement that it's job is to "curate" the news. What on earth is that supposed to mean? AOL's job is to fairly and impartially report the news without bias, and it fails miserably. A fascinating article in the New York Times says that: The word “curate,” lofty and once rarely spoken outside exhibition corridors or British parishes, has become a fashionable code word among the aesthetically minded, who seem to paste it onto any activity that involves culling and selecting. In more print-centric times, the term of art was “edit” — as in a boutique edits its dress collections carefully. But now, among designers, disc jockeys, club promoters, bloggers and thrift-store owners, curate is code for “I have a discerning eye and great taste.” In other words, AOL thinks its job is to pick and choose what you get to read....and how you read it.
Jun 11th 2012 6:26PM This is a great example of why I refuse to live anywere there is a HOA. Little people with too much power making stupid decisions because it makes them feel important.
Apr 25th 2012 11:26PM I am not associated with any clothing company, nor am I advertising for one. I am, however, a very experienced husband who spent 32 years buying for his sweetheart. If you have not tried Ideeli, you should. Their sales are sort of spotty, as they are a real outlet store, but I have seen a lot of nice dresses, including wedding dresses VERY cheap. I've bough beautiful evening gowns under $100. If you are on a budget, this place is terrific. They do have a small annual fee you have to pay to be on their premier buyer's list, but it is worth the investment because the good stuff is usually gone an hour after they list it.

Mar 20th 2012 4:55PM Absolute nonsense. Give a few little people too much power and they run amock. They should be grateful for these lovely flowers.
Feb 17th 2012 7:13PM I am an attorney. I think you can bet on the judge finding that the transfer from one trust to the other was fraudulent, and he or she will also figure out a way to rule that the statute of limitations has not run. Judges bend over backwards to help those who have been shafted.
Feb 17th 2012 7:10PM Yes, I can spell. I just have a migraine. Attak is obviously "Attack." Sorry about that.
Feb 17th 2012 7:09PM I am an attorney in Tennessee. It looks to me like he waited six years to try and let the statute of limitations run on the fraudulent transfer. I'll bet the court rules that the transfer was hidden from Mom or, in the alternative, that she did not possess the capacity to attak the transfer so the statute has not run. This guy is an amazing creep, and judges don't like creeps who take advantage of the elderly.
Feb 1st 2012 7:55PM I have to confess I am not surprised AA is in such horrible state. When I was young I used to fly AA from Nashville to Washington National at least once a month. The aircraft were 727s. As I recall, they were two across. We actually had service and reasonable prices. Flying standby I was able to travel at prices even a student could afford. Today AA and most of the other domestic airlines are simply dreadful. I honestly cannot think of one good thing to say about them. Exorbitant prices, NO service, outrageous charges for "extras" like a piece of baggage. I fly as rarely as possible, and drive if I'm going less than 1000 miles. In contrast, I still get outstanding service and good prices when flying, of all places, in the former Soviet Union. Who would ever have imagined that Ukraine would make our airlines look pathetic? Domestic airlines made their own beds, and now they have to lay in them.
