“Once the play has begun, the play can be finished whether the time has run or not. So the kick took place with time on the clock and the game didn't end until the ball was called dead - AFTER the touchdown.”

“Why has there been no conversation about repealing McCarren-Ferguson. That seems like an important step is working towards a more feasible health care policy.”

Bopenminded on Nov 22, 2013 at 10:15:34

“The vast majority of Americans don't know about McCarren-Ferguson. They don't know that it is a law that exempts the insurance industry from anti-trust laws; or that it has been the law since the 1930's. Americans don't suspect that the reason there is only one insurance company in their state or county is because the insurance companies carved up states and territories.”

“Not true about my turkey. My farmer raises them free range right along side his chickens - no hormones, no antibiotics, no corn GMO or otherwise. No need to brine - the flavor will be fabulous. I can hardly wait.”

“I buy local from a farmer that also does free range. I've never had a bird bigger than 15 lbs or top heavy.”

“Maybe no hormones and antibiotics after they get off the starter but no GMO corn? Want to bet? Find a field that hasn't been contaminated by wind blown pollen and overspray of chemicals from neighboring farms... Does he supplement with certified organic? Want to talk about my bee hives and the problems we are having with them? No Varroa or other diseases but still getting CCD from somewhere. GMO's and chemicals?”

“Access is but one problem with mental health care in our country. Our laws have not kept up with the science and it is frequent that people with mental health issues are arrested or even killed because law enforcement does not know how to deal with them. In addition, even when beds are available the difficulty in having a person who is mentally ill committed is far too great a hurdle. The legal phrase "a danger to himself or others" is so poorly designed that it requires a person to verbally threaten in front of a doctor or law enforcement to do harm to himself or another. And there are so many other barriers and disjunctions between our laws and rapidly evolving neuroscience.”

“My hat is off to you for fostering AND raising you grandchildren. I am an older parent who looked into adoption in my early 40s and discovered that I was not eligible for most agencies because I was too old. Thank heavens I was able to give birth. When I read stories like these I cringe over the bizarre system we have created. Why do agencies think people in their 40s and 50s are not capable of providing a loving home? Anyone would have been better than these two. Raising children is the most important work there is and it IS work - 24/7.”

“It was an incredible game. Cheering for Auburn, I thought the Tigers had it wrapped up the last 5 minutes. GA, behind Murray, did an extraordinary job overtaking Auburn. Even after that incredible play, GA was in it until the very last 8 seconds and the last play. Just imagine what kind of a team you would have had without injuries this year. Good game.”

“In your earlier post you say most administrators are male. But Palazzo clearly refers to "her". I am not suggesting that she is referring to Herbst but my point is that it is NOT male administrators who are not protecting Palazzo but FEMALE,”

“I was making reference in general.

Palazzo is not being protected.”

“In most places you are correct but at UConn astoundingly it is women administrators who are standing in the way. The President of UConn, Susan Herbst, has a long record of denying accountability for male students guilty of sexual assault. But also notice that Palazzo refers to a female administrator who was so dismissive.

"Palazzo said she felt like the administrator was discrediting her concern based on one line of an email that simply noted she had experienced a similar situation.

"I think she just wanted honestly to get rid of me and she wanted the interview to be over," Palazzo said."”

Ramona Jackson on Nov 14, 2013 at 09:51:41

“As you did, I also read the article. However, it was not the head of the university but a lower administrator Palazzo consulted. Had it been President Herbst, Palazzo would have mentioned her name in full. That's my opinion of course, but it seems logical to me that she would have done.”
