“What price does one put on a way of life? on clean water? clean air? For many people with ties to their land the value of their real estate cannot be measured in dollars. It is shameful these people have been forced to put their way of life at risk. Throughout the years pipelines have caused incredible damage.”

“Who really cares what Rush "thinks"? If the mainstream medium would quit giving the Limbaughs, Robertsons, Palins, Kardashians, etc. coverage, maybe (hopefully) they would fade.”

“Susan: I am old. Cataracts are developing. I still cling to the written page. When I can no longer read the fine print, I shall purchase a magnifier... as did my grandparents and my parents before me.”

“I beg to differ. I love the weight, the smell of a book whether new or old, the rustle of the pages, placing it on a shelf and the ability of passing it on to yet another reader.”

Susan Landis-Steward on Jan 28, 2014 at 01:57:23

“When you get old and your eyes go, you will run for the nearest Kindle or Nook. Being able to bump up the font, change the background color, and adjust the line spacing allows me to continue to read anything I want. Otherwise, I'd be stuck with large print books. And let me tell you this, even the great Powell's Books has only a very small section of large print, most of them so-called "best-sellers" aka "crap".”

“I like both, but when I'm in a car at night, and my wife is driving, I like my Nook because I can make it dimmer and the light doesn't bother her. Same goes for reading in bed.”

“Visit a good independent and/or used bookstore. Too often the proprietors are in the business not to make money but because they love their product. When I owned my shop I could often make solid recommendations based on a customer's favorite past reads. So many wonderful stories and authors in each and every gender.”

“Pasta, riblets, wraps are high calorie carbs. A diet high in carbs, combined with the aging process which automatically causes female bodies to expand post-menopause, combined with difficulty walking and exercising tend to make human beings spread. Owen, your comment was uncalled for. It was beastly, judgmental and unkind.”

“There is plenty of anti-gay sentiment in the new testament as well... in the writings (rantings) by Paul, i.e., Romans, Corinthians, Timothy. Paul was definitely homophobic. Of course he never spent time with Jesus in the flesh. Paul evidently met Jesus on the road to Damascus (some 20 years after the crucifixion).”

Jeffrey Marks on Dec 23, 2013 at 06:50:04

“Paul didn't like sex of any kind. He told his followers to stay celibate and only get married if they thought staying celibate would make them sin.

Jesus said nothing about gays, and considering that he's the son of God, I would think he would have if it was a big deal to him. He did say plenty about divorce but America is fine with divorce.”

“The 1,000 bags of doritos were paid for by the Seattle Police Foundation... They included a tag with "Do's and Dont's":
"Don't drive while high. Don't give, sell or shotgun weed to people under 21. Don't use pot in public..... Do listen to Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume. Do enjoy Hempfest."

“Seattle Officers passed out packets of Doritos at Hemp Fest in Seattle... while folks were smoking joints in public... I believe these small random acts allow the general public to see that many members of the force are human, too.”

“Nations need to remember other atrocities.
January 2011 protesters called for political reforms reinstatement of civil rights, and an end to the state of emergency, in place since 1963. Syrian authority responded with violence. In August, political cartoonist Ali Farzat was attacked by Syrian security forces and hospitalized with fractures in both hands and blunt force trauma to the head. He was warned to stop drawing cartoons of government officials, particularly of Assad.
The Syrian dictator is trying to restore a balance of fear. Killing children is supposed to intimidate.
Loyal Assad forces murdered at least 108 people in Houla. Women and children (49 under the age of 10) were targeted. The regime denied it carried out the atrocities, but U.N. officials said they saw clear evidence that the Syrian government was involved. .
13-year-old boy Hamza Ali al-Khateeb, arrested on April 29 during a protest. May 24, his body was returned to his parents. He “spent nearly a month in the custody of Syrian security, and when they finally returned the corpse, it bore the scars of brutal torture: lacerations, bruises and burns to his feet, elbows, face, and knees. His eyes were swollen and black and there were identical bullet wounds where he had apparently been shot through both arms, the bullets tearing a hole in his sides and lodging in his belly. On Hamza’s chest was a deep, dark burn mark. His neck was broken and his penis cut off.” (Al Jazeera)”

“You need to speak with a social security attorney. Depending on your past work experience, you might "grid out" at age 50. Additionally, without "bilateral use of your upper extremities" it would be very hard for you to seek either an unskilled or light duty job. Please, do speak with a qualified attorney who specializes in social security disability law. The disability program was created to help those in situations such as yours.”

“"Heels" can be any shoe that is not flat -- from 1/2" high up to the ridiculous. While my bad back and I treasure my Dansko clogs (which I wear at least 350 days per year) I do have a pair of 1.5" dressier shoes for that very rare occasion. While no longer 5, indeed many decades past, I still think it is fun to play dress-up every once in a blue moon.”
