I use the program. Pretty cool. But yeah, tracking a VIP and having it posted on line. Hmmm...Darwin Award material me thinks.

If people would drive like the rules state, we all could drive around with cardboard box cars and still not have problems. Just yesterday, LONG after a traffic signal turned red, a huge bus driver decided to run the light. Any car that would have been been in that spot would have been crushed. So, keep the Kei's and ditch idiot drivers. Bus and truck drivers for sure!

Why not just designated one car for folks who do not want to be around other folks with cell phones or other electronic devices. In other words, why not have one car a designated "No Electronic Devices on board" car? This would be similar to "Women only" cars. Can we do this? Yes? No?

I doubt they will attack us on September 11th. That is too predictable. They will get us when we are least expected. Like watching a really bad movie!

Gun violence makes its way all the way to New Zealand. My friend just moved there, thought it was a safe country. Wow!

Couldn't enroll his children, so he went and killed children? Now that deserves the death penalty, not just someone who has drugs as is the case in another story. Terrible! Must be real stress going on over there! Rest in Peace little ones.

He tried to cut off his what? Seriously though, I hope they will just let him go and send him back to Japan. He would fit in here far more appropriately than anywhere's else.

I wonder why Okinawa was excluded from this exercise. We had nothing going on here. Maybe we do ours separately?

The BOE's e-mail should have read "Sorry he WAS in a position to teach children". I see his point, but he sure didn't know how to make it. One job vacancy announcement coming up.

He's not a realistic actor but he is great for entertainment. He's funny and entertaining but not for taking serious. He is what this world needs. Laughter and entertainment. Take care of yourself Jackie and keep us entertained. You're great!

I would assume that Hinckley's visits to his mother are supervised, right? Anyway, I always felt so bad for James Brady, he sure did suffer. I remember this breaking on TV while I was serving in the U.S. Air Force in Hawaii. I was at my office taking care of my customers when the customer service room TV was on and I saw the news. Wow! Any who, rest in peace.

That's really messed up and sad. So much tragedy in such a short period of time. My heart goes out to all of those who died on both flights along with their families and other loved ones. Oh my.
