Apr 30th 2013 8:06PM Oh please. Clearly this woman is preparing for a lawsuit. I wouldn't care if she wanted to pump in my vicinity but why she has to do so at her seat, rather than in the bathroom, on a 40 minute flight from Chicago to Minneapolis is a mystery to me. And then going to NBC to whine about the "humiliation" is all part of her plan to squeeze AA for a few more bucks than the $100 they already gave her. When she gets her $50 million from a functionally illiterate jury for the emotional trauma of not being able to pump in public, we'll all pay a little more for our tickets on AA. God Bless America!
Apr 19th 2013 6:10PM I agree with you regarding Greece's policy towards Macedonia. However I don't think the school kids who are picking through trash for leftover food are responsible for that policy, just as school kids here in the U.S. aren't responsible for all the dumb things that our government does, and the fact that we have plenty of corrupt businessman and politicians here as well.
Apr 11th 2013 11:12PM Interesting piece. There was a story about this on the NPR program "The World" tonight and the correspondent indicated that the pickpockets were Roma. My wife was robbed by a group of Roma in Rome several years ago. In that case, one person approached her to ask a question and while she was distracted one of their accomplices came up from behind and picked her pockets. According to the NPR story, this is still a common tactic used.
Apr 9th 2013 4:09PM Many of you are commenting on how nice the people in Sissonville are and some are suggesting that I need to return in order to understand that. As I said in the other comment, all the people we met were terrific and there is nothing in the article to suggest otherwise. I described what I saw on Wolf Pen Drive and I think most outsiders would agree that poverty is a serious problem there. That doesn't mean that anyone who lives there isn't a wonderful human being.
For the record, I am far from rich and I do not drive a "fancy car." We share one car- a 2004 Toyota Matrix with 110,000 miles on it. My wife, who is not "snooty" as some of you have suggested, is actually from a very small, humble little town in the Midwest herself. She didn't want to go to Sissonville only because we were already on a long road trip with two little boys and she didn't want to prolong the drive any more than necessary.
Apr 9th 2013 1:19PM Well said, Lisa. I wasn't trying to say that Sissonville is a bad place. My point is that the politicians who want to ban the show need to understand that kids who come from an economically depressed area have a right to do whatever they want to make a living, as long as they aren't hurting anyone. I would like to see all of you good folks from Sissonville direct your rage at Senator Joe Manchin and Mayor Danny Jones and all the rest of your elected officials who are saying that these kids have given the state a bad name and that the show should be banned.
Apr 9th 2013 11:37AM The people we met in Sissonville were very friendly. I didn't speak to Shain's neighbors, but we met several other people and they were terrific. My point here isn't to denigrate the town. The point is that if you grow up in a place like Wolf Pen Drive, your options to move up in life are limited and I don't blame Shain and the others for making a few bucks on MTV, even though others believe they have given the state a bad name.
Mar 11th 2013 10:46AM Haha, I hate to burst the bubble but it got much more crowded and no, everyone didn't have a place to sit. I filmed this before the bus left the station.
Mar 7th 2013 12:21PM Right on! Turkey is a great place to visit. And most find it very safe as well. Just ask Matt Krause, an American who is walking across the entire country.
