All my thoughts and prayers go out to this mother and child. We need to be a better community than one in which an innocent child is shot while riding his bike in the middle of the day. God help us.

I have also heard that drug companies like Merck drug test all employees, even those companies with whom they contract out jobs. It makes sense; they don't want medical marijuana legal!

There's plenty of evidence that people abuse oxycontin and vicodan, too.

The problem isn't Meehan's salary per se. It is today's environment of huge income inequality, driven by CEOs in comparable positions, that makes it seem reasonable. Yes, it's a high profile job with more »
