An interesting idea for revenge, but did the bullies even know why they were being targeted or by whom? If not, then it was a waste of time and energy, unless it just made him feel better to confuse and upset them. Like most of their kind, I'm afraid they had probably forgotten all about their past abuse of this guy. Although, maybe they did remember and were able to tell the police who they suspected and that's how he was caught.

Isn't it odd that 8 years ago, one of the biggest complaints Republicans had about Obama was that he was too inexperienced in government to be President. They went on and on that he was "just a community organizer". He was a community organizer before he earned his law degree. Then he went on to teach Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago, serve 3 terms in the Illinois Senate, and then, in 2004, he was elected to the U.S. Senate. Now they support Trump? A crooked failed businessman, reality TV "star", and lunatic ignoramus? Can he even spell "Constitution"? We already know he doesn't know anything about the Constitution, if his speeches and so-called policies are anything to go by. Has the man ever even read a book? At the very least least, Clinton has experience, intelligence, and dedication on her side, as well as not being out of her mind.

So different from Prince Akishino's family. All the photos of them look so natural and even happy. The daughters look poised, relaxed, and friendly at public events, even when they were younger, especially in the candid or unofficial photos taken by spectators. Of course, they are a little older than Princess Aiko and have studied abroad. Were they allowed more freedom growing up than Princess Aiko? None of the family looks tense or strained like Prince Naruhito's family. Many people comment on how Princess Masako had such a free life before she married into the royal family, but maybe she was struggling even then. She was obviously intelligent and hard-working, but maybe also highly-strung. Joining the royal family only exacerbated problems she already had.

They could have used their smarts and technology to increase accessibility for those who truly need assistance, some elderly or disabled people, for example.

Sadly, early intervention was the key. But that ship has sailed. I don't know what kind of help they can receive now. It's a very sad story and all too common when treatment for mental illness or disability isn't sought soon enough, or at all.

And you think Trump doesn't believe he is "above the law"? He's certainly lived his life as if he believes so.

Sounds good, but judging from the nutritional information, I'm not sure it qualifies as healthy with so much sodium. But, I'm not a nutritionalist, so maybe it's okay.

I have been taking care of my mother for 9 years. She's 88 years old now. I'm blessed that she can still walk fairly well and doesn't have dementia. We get along very well, but still the stress and responsibility can sometimes be overwhelming. It's important to have support from other family members, but even more important to have caregiver support groups available. People to talk to who are dealing with the same issues. I feel so sorry for this woman if she didn't have that support. It can be terribly isolating to be a full-time caregiver. I hope the judge will have mercy on her, although I think she will never forgive herself. This sentence breaks my heart, "then she took her mother by the hand and led her into deeper water and then let her go." Tragic.

Wow. "Crazy eyes." "Nutjob." Is it any wonder some people with mental health issues try to hide their problems? Such compassion. I hope she gets the help she needs, whatever her issues may be.

It was great to see several of the guys give quite thoughtful answers to all the questions. They seem to be pretty knowledgeable already about the pros and cons. All of the guys were interesting, though - smart, funny, attractive, etc. They should have more confidence! From the background, it looks like some kind of international event or something, so maybe a lot of the visitors were already interested in foreign countries and/or meeting or dating foreigners. Good luck to them all!

Instead of making our phones smarter, why don't we try to be smarter ourselves? We need more work in that area, I think.

I don't know why there have to be so many entertainment awards shows anyway. What other industry feels the need to pat itself on the back in public repeatedly year after year after year? How insecure are you? Strange cult of celebrity, I guess.
