So because these two idiots were "popular" high school students this guy is charged withRead More murder? They broke into his home and invaded his sanctuary. I'd have have shot them myself. Two less future criminals.

If they put up a new statue, it should be one of Joe Pa in a 'sombre pose' with children standingRead More next to him and his arms outward each way with an inscription that says; "In hindsight, I wish I had done more" It will show that Joe Pa, as great as he was, is human and made the wrong decision.

Michael - the "progeny" vs. "prodigy" was an example that I was using for theRead More whole board here (or any other board). No, your post was fine and obviously I didn't misunderstand you. I was aiming that more at a lot of folks whom I truly can't understand. You just happened to be lucky enough to misuse a word and then accuse people of not comprehending what they're reading. As far as labelling me/us as woman-haters, again that was aimed at a few other people. And actually, if I am a troll, I just troll for the opportunity to rip on people for using sweeping generalities.

I was in the car with a friend, once; he was driving. Upon seeing a large SUV with its driverRead More holding a phone to their ear, my friend pointed at the driver and started telling me about how dangerous "distracted drivers" are. Well, while pointing and ranting, my friend had swerved over the line and dangerously close to hitting the large SUV, which was on a steady course in the middle of its lane. The moral of this story is that "distracted drivers" are not always who you'd expect.

Sure Ed, makes sense to ban someone who cares about the world we I've in.
Scott Ritchie April 23, 2014 at 03:29 pm
The only positive effect I have seen is that a review of the phone of a driver who was involved in aRead More fatal accident showed that he was texting at the time and it added to the "he was stupid and careless" evidence. Personally, I would love to see a law against "driving like an idiot" which would cover texting, phone, putting on makeup, reading a book held on your steering wheel, changing clothes, etc... all of which I have seen on 422

think monkey shud be left up.... great example of what people face. its obviouslyRead More meant as provocation. but if u leave it up--they only look like the jerk... should embarrass monkey more than offend anyone. they are obviously just a dope.

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

"And you can read the standards, but you do not have access to the agreements the states haveRead More signed, and do not know what other , untried methods of teaching will be mandatory under the Core. " ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: The Core makes it clear what methods of teaching are mandatory--NONE. The Common Core Standards do not mandate or specify any specific teaching methods. If states are mandating methods of teaching, it falls outside of the scope of the Common Core Standards.
CowDung April 24, 2014 at 11:35 am
From the WEAC (Wisconsin teachers union) website:Read More :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: "Common myths, such as “No teachers were involved in writing the CCSS” and “Common core reduces the reading of fiction and literature” are simply incorrect. More than a dozen teachers were on the writing team for the Common Core State Standards, coordinated by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. In Wisconsin, standards leadership teams, made up entirely of Wisconsin educators and content experts in mathematics and English-language arts, provided feedback to multiple drafts of the Common Core State Standards before they were released." :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: http://www.weac.org/news_and_publications/13-10-23/DPI_provides_fact_check_on_Common_Core.aspx

From the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website:Read More ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: "Myth: No teachers were involved in writing the CCSS.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

The turnpike is already operating in the RED and once again they waste more money they do not have.
