Nov 12th 2009 10:47AM Yes Oprah went too far. This was the most insensitive interview of her career.
Nov 12th 2009 8:49AM BOLOGNA? Bologna does not have outstanding hotels! The best of London tower over the best of Bologna.
Jul 31st 2009 10:22AM This case has merit. I hope schools understand that they should not demand students' passwords unless there is a suspicion of criminality or slander or conspiracy or an extreme situation like bullying or plagiarism.
At the same time students should not put anything, not a word, in an email, text or Facebook or MySpace or Twitter or blog post that they would not read to the principal of the school or your coach or your best friend's mother. Seriously. The written word is transmittable. The spoken word less so, unless someone's audio or video taping you.
May 15th 2009 8:38AM How does this differ from doing something as dangerous as lying on train tracks so a train can run over you? (Have you seen those videos on YouTube?) I can't respect or admire this. There's no discovery in this. It's a coin toss. Go grab a nickel, nut jobs!
Mar 5th 2009 12:38PM These are great. Here's a link to the 100 paces idea; here, it's 100 steps! Perhaps this was where you saw it?
Feb 7th 2009 4:55PM Sure thing, Jamie. I enjoy your posts. Yes, I saw his notes and found them fascinating. What pressure, the legend and the legacy -- and an absolutely nonnegotiable deadline!
I'll let you know how the play is.
Feb 7th 2009 12:30PM I've got tickets for the 21st, and am looking forward to seeing the renovated theater. Please note: The play is not about Lincoln's assassination.
From the website:
Highlighting the five months between the death of Lincoln’s son Willie and the delivery of the Emancipation Proclamation, Heavens will offer audiences a glimpse into the person who was Abraham Lincoln.
Feb 6th 2007 11:44AM This is gorgeous, but fireworks, lightning AND a shooting star? The shooting star puts this over the top. I wonder if it was photoshopped.
Jan 7th 2007 2:42PM I'm surprised Toys R Us capitulated. LOTS of sweeps rules do not specify "legal" residents of U.S,; they simply say "residents of ..." Before I found the rules online, I thought Toys R Us had played a fast one, and added the notion of "legal" resident after the fact. Apparently not. It's right there in the rules, plain as day. I guess the lawyers calculated the negative publicity wasn't worth $25,000, even though in theory this move could make sweeps rules more vulnerable to challenges.
