May 3rd 2010 7:47PM And, Laurie, the general manager and staff were up ALL last night delivering food, blankets, luggage, and medications to the guests who had to be evacuated. So, maybe if you weren't such an ugly personality, we would've treated you better.
May 3rd 2010 7:45PM I live in Nashville. The Country Music Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry House, LP Field, and some of the hospitals are flooded. Thousands have lost their homes.....The hotel is now under at least 10 feet of water. Entire buildings are flooded. We are usually suspect to flooding so this is all very new to us.
Sep 1st 2009 1:07PM Here's my thing. I've seen a few episodes of their show and they seem like good, decent people. Their children are good kids. However, it seems horrible that they would keep having children when so many kids need good homes. I don't think they're producing kids out of greed or anything, just not taking precautions because in most Christian based faiths, you're not supposed to. I support their beliefs, but I don't feel they're doing the best thing for their family.
Jul 22nd 2009 2:50PM This is an awesome story. I love that he remembers his roots and the fact that he wasn't always in a position to help people and now he's being so generous. I also like the fact that he points out that for every evil person, there are 2 good ones. Those kids deserve this, maybe kindness will help erase some of the negativity they've had to face.
Jul 14th 2009 11:56AM This story is too cool. Congrats to her. It's cool to see any 15 year old doing miraculous things, especially coming from this generation. Her interest in History is rare, I'm proud of her and I don't even know her! It's just really interesting what she did, wow. Cool kid.
Jun 3rd 2009 1:48PM OK, I actually just flew for the first time last week (since 9/11). I found it to not be that horrible, everyone was very helpful. Research requirements & restrictions before you leave!

They will tell you everything you need to know.
I believe you can bring a separate laptop bag because I saw others putting theirs' on a separate converyor belt. I'm not sure about the purse carry-on, but I think you can. If possible, wear flip flops so they're easy to slip on and off during security. If your flight is one way, like mine was, you will be chosen for additional security and pat down, but it wasn't too terrible.
The only thing you have to worry about carrying with you are liquids. You can't bring any food/drink into your carryon. Your liquids need to be in 3 ounce bottle and you need to put them in a clear plastic bag. Makeup should be fine, I had my compact and lip gloss and no one stopped me. Foundation should be ok, I'd still put in a baggie.
Good Luck and Don't Worry. I was very nervous too. Not about my plane going down but just making it to the terminal. Oh, don't pack anything with an aerosol thing because even if it's in your checked bag, the airline will dismantle it. And, your locks now have to be TSA approved (a little symbol will be on the package). However, nothing in your suitcase can be locked!
You'll be fine, I overslept and only got to the airport an hour before my flight---it went very well.
Apr 8th 2009 1:18PM As a future teacher, I am appalled that this teacher brought in on campus. Am I saying that the kids were "damaged", no. However, as a teacher, we uphold a certain responsibility and "image". What someone does in their home is their business, but when you bring that out into the public, you allow everyone to see it and judge it. He shouldn't have that on campus and definitely not where it could be accidentally viewed. I think he should at least get written up. Why would he leave his laptop at school anyways?
Mar 20th 2009 2:40PM I think this is just digging for something to complain about...give it a rest.

I think Matt is being a little harsh. Granted, euthanasia isn't always the best answer, however your animal had a debilitating disease and you couldn't stand to see him suffer anymore. I'm sure it was a tough time in your house, but I probably would have done the same thing. And I think it is important to remember that although pets should be treated humane, they aren't the same as humans so asking if your kid had cancer, would you put it down is a little crazy. I'm an animal lover and I believe in treating them well, but I can see where she is coming from.
