    So, the police say following too closely contributed to the crashes? I think not. The person that came to a dead stop in a high speed lane on a high speed road is the one who caused the crashes. The p more »

    I wonder if it helps to also keep the crime rate down. I mean, who wants to get caught and go to jail and have to wear THAT uniform?? It'd sure make me want to stay out of jail! more »

    Oh for goodness' sake, PETA. Go away with your "fish are smart" campaign. That has to be one of your stupidest misconceptions. And you have many of them. more »

    A Father, aka male, might be more hesitant to do what she did, just because of the risk of being accused of kidnapping. One of the saddest conversations I had was with the husband of a friend, who lam more »

    Actually I found it quite good. I forgot I had a Picasa Account, and also that I had a couple of Google Docs. Skin crawling? Hardly. I didn't like seeing my shipping address and partial credit card nu more »

    yooper2, you are so very wrong. Michigan has a great workforce, highly educated and motivated. And as ghany says, abundant natural resources. And a transportation infrastructure that Mass can only dre more »

    Piho has it right. Half portions of adult food would be great. I could never understand why kids meals in a restaurant were always peanut butter and jelly, chicken nuggets and french fries, and so on. more »

    Although Emergency was the classic, why wasn't William Shatner's Rescue 911 mentioned? Particularly since those were based on true incidents and with the original crews. As an EMS Instructor at the ti more »

    Actually it makes sense. What is a low-carb diet anyway, but eliminating everything but meats. And meats have long been known to raise cholesterol and hence plaque. And mice are used in studies becaus more »

    This sounds like something I'd be reading in a Detroit newspaper. I left lovely Michigan and moved to Maine to get away from this stuff. :( more »

    I cannot believe the Postal Service wants to take away a simple mailbox to save money. If they truly want to save money, they might want to think about closing the post office in Chamberlain, Maine, w more »

    Would have been nice to see a picture. No matter, someone has a short video of it at Facebook.

    Well, sceesic, apparently you don't have a family member who relies on digging for their income. I do. It's not about not eating them. It's just one more slam on the economy for hundreds of people. Oh more »

    How is this stimulating jobs here in Maine? No wonder the economy is still tanking, if this is the best use of funding that the DOT can come up with. more »

    Ah yes the Nanny state knows what is best for us. However, I do tend to agree with them on not allowing sales of all fireworks. A smarter thing to do would be to allow sales of Class C fireworks. Righ more »

    Demonstrate? Thanks to this economy, I haven't had a raise in over a year and a half. And won't get one next year. And it's about time the state workers have to contribute some towards their health in more »

    Yup. Maine. High food prices, high gas prices, high taxes and low wages. The way life should be? I think not. more »

    Well, Odumba, you obviously have forgotten it was Duh-Bya's policies that caused this horrible recession. Obama's only been in office for a little over 100 days. What do you expect, a miracle?? He wav more »

    JRoz42, While your idea has merit, the problem with that is when the ships arrive in port. Most countries do not take kindly to armed ships coming in. :) A far better solution is to use unmanned drone more »
