    Anyone of age in the 80s who watch the prime time TV drama Moonlighting that made Bruce Willis a hit would know Al Jarreau for the opening tune of the show.

    A silky voice and classy guy that will be missed.

    RIP Al

    Seems odd for a person to just FALL off a moving vessel.

    Two decades in the US Navy, there is nothing odd about this, it happens.

    High seas, poor situational awareness, or ship making a unannounced hard turn when an individual is in the wrong place at the wrong time. You don't wear a life vest all the time on a ship, maybe a boat.

    Hope they find him alive.

    I really loved her in the movie “Big Wednesday” as Mrs. Barlow that happen to be a big hit in Japan. I believed any kid would like a mom as she played in that movie. Her character was cool and could relate to the younger generation.

    As long as you have these single middle-aged men with fantasies of having one of these girls in their lives waiving glow sticks, bouncing up and down at their concerts, you will always have these groups.

    I recall her being the campaign girl for the Japanese Pension System back in the late 90s and the media later found out and published that she was not paying into her own pension account. She is aging very well by this photo.

    I'm an older gent, but don't smoke. Most of my friends are of the same age group as me and some do smoke. However, what I have experienced over the last few years is that a growing number of the younger generation of smokers often prefer to go outside or a designated smoking area. I suppose it’s part of the evolution of smoking awareness and how it impacts others. I often go to smoking establishments and see someone younger get up and go outside to smoke although they have every right to do so in those places. My older friends simply don't think of doing that because they come from an era where it was just the norm. I was in Taiwan when they implemented the ban on smoking in all eating establishments in mid to late 2000s and it struggled for a few months, but some establishments actually realized they were getting more business due to smoke free eating environment. However, there was loss of patronage from some of the regulars who could not accept the change. those numbers were far more smaller.

    Dogin consulted the Child Welfare Office and said, “I don’t think my child is cute.”

    I guess that's where we differ, I think all babies are cute.

    There is a possibility that the heart failure was a result of the chase alone. The suspect's physical contact may have not played any part in his death, just saying.

    The V-22 was design to operated both prop rotors on one engine in the event of single engine failure. Although ok in forward flight, it does not work very well in hover and the reasons both engines will shut down. With both engines failed it will then use a technique called auto-rotation where energy stored in the rotors will create inertia and descend the aircraft to the ground. Given the fact that the V-22 prop rotors are less capable of doing this, the drop to earth is increased. Thought you should know.

    For the last few years I felt uneasy on train platforms, and now by habit look behind me as a train approaches.

    Paranoid no, sense of caution yes.

    I assume 75 percent of those signatures came from abroad.

    Why do the police keep chasing for something so petty ?

    I was not aware that wreck less driving was a petty crime.

    Would it have been better if the police simply ignore it and this person would have ran into someone in a crosswalk or people on the side of the road?

    A parent's most basic responsibility is to protect their children. Simply saying you are sorry is unacceptable when you should have reported this lunatic to the police. They say justice is blind, but the judge in this case is blind to what actually happen to this girl.

    It may have to do more about over-time vs. actually work being performed. After work I sometimes stop at one of my favorite watering holes that is adjacent to a government office. I can see a couple of workers in the office window just staring at a computer monitor and getting up to stretch or tapping on their cell phones. I may be wrong, but when I'm at my computer and having to work past regular hours, I'm frantically typing away or moving the mouse at full rate.
