Who appointed this chucklehead to the committee anyway? Perhaps that body needs fresh blood.

Humble mention should be given to Mr. Stallone, who has given much, and taken the risk, to single handily support lost actors throughout his own stellar career (Burgess Meredith being THE exceptional master). In particular as mentioned, comes to mind Mickey Rourke, and his powerful character role in one of Stallone's (in my humble opinion), best films, GET CARTER. Arnold is on that resurrection list, as I don't believe he could carry any movie on his own, without some spectacular writing. It's Mr. Stallone, that draws me to see these 'buddy' films, as for me, his choice of supporting characters will always add sugar to the work. We're seeing the maturing of a Rat Pack of actors, that when together, give us a new dimension of thrill. Congratulations to Mr. Schwarznegger, and the renewal of his acting career. In footnote... One can't escape the full circle as depicted in the separate films of these two actors. Let's enjoy the ride!

Lunar, Martian, Asteroid. Property claims should be respected with permanent colonization. Anything less, and your just a visiting tourist. It will be interesting however, exactly how much rock the first inhabitants claim. Hope I live long enough to witness the folly.

Perhaps Robert Dykes is correct. The Ferrari wasn't going fast... the forward car was going too slow. As for the comments of the Ferrari drivers arrogance or richness... save your jealous rant... anything can be rented.

Yes, Fadamor... details. I think it would be valuable information that the next intended victim might thwart malicious intent of the next clown.

The intensity of this guys actions are determined in the public media. It's dangerous mistake to dismiss harmful intent. The detail of sobriety would morph to bi-polarity. That's the way we do it in the wild west. Has nothing to do with self pity, or homesickness, or I think nobody likes me. Those things are used to form fancy profiles. And since the psychiatric we know is based on denial of factual retrospect, the safe haven of bi-polarity is where its at. This way, fault falls onto parents, community, unarmed teachers, a wrong cocktail-mix of prescribed drugs. See!... Wasn't that easy?

Visit a high traffic Starbucks at the mall. First time there again in months. The barista remembers my poison. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy. Starbucks is the only coffee shop I know outside my home. I'm a happy guy.

Okay... perhaps 'insecure nuts' was a bit harsh... but imagine that we create our own chaos. Imagine if we respected each other. That respect is what we're losing. This is the result.

Brilliant stupid idea. Typical kneejerk western reaction. Have cancer?... you need a cigarette. When instead of keeping guns out of schools, we put them in the hands of someone that's closet bi-polar, measured rational and sane, because they wear a badge. The next shooter in our furure will be the cop that slipped through the cracks of this irrational approach. Can't wait to see who takes responsibility for that one. I would not I let my kid go a place where I KNOW the gun is. No books of faith in school, just the latest pamphlet from the insecure nuts at the NRA, warning of the movement to disarm... passing out cupons for ammunition at Wal Mart. On the other hand, there are worse things than our students forced at gun point into performing oral-sex. It's coming.

The issue of craft-type and the arguable logistics, at best interesting. For most effected, the matter is singular. I agree with 'megosaa'. The singular matter is by any definition; the lack of respect. Absent, it leaves the hole that edges the cancer eating at what solitude remains.

Wow. I was just conversing with a friend about bad service being the rule at McDonald's. The fact is, the only way to get a cheeseburger here, without cheese being colder that the burger, is to special order. Tell them to hold one of the pickles, should you order at any McDonald's home in the states. Incidentally, this doesn't effect the wait you would have had in the first place, had you ordered off the rack. If you want fresh hot fries instead of throwing darts, you order them without salt. This is not the experience of visiting the same store, again or again. And it wasn't always like this. To hear of this promotional stunt is laughable. That promotion here, would celebrate nostalgic service.
