Consider how much better it would be for Cameron to make a 90 minute movie on MH370 than CNN yammering about it all day long for the last 5 weeks!

Since banning of smoking indoors, there seems to be a great increase of fires started outside of buildings, in mulch and around porches. If people were allowed to instead smoke indoors, there would be more »

The government printing fewer checks would save even more money.

It would be a tragedy if DCF is allowed to kill more children. With their track record, they and the court have no right to be so arrogant in stealing children from caring parents. Despite its reputat more »

Copenhagen treats bicyclists far better than beautiful, exotic creatures. Seems like the inbreeding problem is with the human population. They need to indulge the bicyclists less and have more compass more »
