“I've posted this story before but a few years back I dropped a twenty in a walmart when I got home I realized it was missing. I called walmart believing it was a long shot that it was turned it but asked anyway. Sure enough it had been. Whoever found it probably didn't know who to ask as it can be crowded and the chance runs high at least 3 people would turn around and "claim" it to be theirs, so rather than pocket it they turned it in. I couldn't believe it and even the employees didn't pocket the money Never did find out who turned it in and never got to thank them, but I am thankful. I mostly appreciated the honesty and integrity and kindness more than the money. Acts and good deeds as the doer, receiver or observer buff out some of the tarnish, taint and grime we seem to experience way to often and we get to witness humanity shine with renewed faith, even if momentarily so. Such a great thing.”

“The show is called American Idol. A lot of young impressionable kids watch that show and dream of the day they can be old enough to audition. An idol is also a role mode and implies idolization. If you are trying to create a brand image behind that concept; perhaps the activities and behaviors of the contestants that were excused do not match up and fall in alignment with what the shows creators are trying to project for the idol (just not the judges). Also it is no secret after the idol show winners can get testy and dissatisfied with the producers, the direction of their career and how it is managed. If they sense that up front the possibility that someone could be difficult to work with I'm sure they will find a way to bow out of a future working relationship. This isn't discrimination they are pretty diverse and have been in the past. I am a mutil ethnic and I call foul on pulling the race card.”

“And get rid of some of those nonsensical courses said create a "well rounded education" but has nothing to do with the major. The student and the work force would be better served if the course work pertaining to their goal/degree was streamed line and focused. If it can't somehow translate into their major and chosen career they shouldn't have to waste time and money taking the course.”

“More Washington double talk from the fork tongue politicians. In their speeches they tout the drive and need for better education from pre-K through college, while in their actions they are falling short every step of the way and then making it increasing difficult from beginning to end with costs. How can we be a leading country if our current "leaders" make it impossible to do so, meanwhile other countries surpass us and will continue pull forward and advance. Perhaps that is behind some of the language of the recent immigration bill.”

“Snowden's actions aside, as a citizen of the US, I feel DC is full of Benedict Arnolds, voted in with promises to represent their constituents ,serve the public only to turn face and serve themselves, their sponsors and corporate contributors. Even way before President Obama our country's government hasn't really ever belonged to the people it claims to represent. That for me has been an even worse betrayal and disloyalty.”

“Not a fan of Fox, but perhaps the emotional distress was caused by the fathers suicide which wasn't done in the most discrete or private way and the fact the kids watched the clip later and not live, where it was a controllable and preventable action, as opposed to the live version. Perhaps a counter suits to his estate after her lawsuit or settlement comes should be filed on behalf of other distressed viewers that they were subjected to watching him in a high speed chase and kill himself knowing he was on camera would even it out. It is sad she lost her spouse and her sons their father, but it was his doing and the lawsuit and the money won't unchange his choice and action or the consequence as a result. It would still have a negative and adverse effect on her family, suicides always do.”

“Sure but you as the person being used need to make choices either continue allowing yourself to be used or move on with your life. An analogy; if every time you met someone on the same street at the same time and they slapped you and you decided to walk across the street to avoid them and they called you over and slapped you still you shouldn't be surprised. You take a different route, not get in a car run up sidewalk and run them over, back up run them over more, drag them down the street, kill them,hide the body in an alley, clean up your car and act as if nothing happen and then lie when your caught. yes, that person may have slapped you every time and hurt you, made you mad, but don't expect people to be cool with it when they convict you of murder. You may feel he had it coming, but that wasn't a case of tit for tat. Too extreme of a response to allowing yourself to be used and having the inability to control your own emotions.”

“Releasing and expletive and calling an expletive on a professional recorded line toward a victim of a crime two different things. Perhaps the dispatcher should reevaluate their career choice, clearly now it is either burnout or disconnect or incompetence but either way they shouldn't be in that profession any longer as it is no longer a public service they perform or one the public needs or should accept or want.”

“That dispatcher failed in several areas of basic call taking, not only compromising the caller, the neighbors, other victims, but the police officer safety. That is not a call you rush off a line to take the next call. This is a large failing on the dispatcher in question on many levels.”

“The call taker did not take enough information. Didn't calm the caller, use listening skills to extract information. It being a kidnapping the caller saying something to the effect of hurry he might come back should be an indications to stay on the line as the caller did not feel safe or out of danger. Never asked if anyone was armed had weapons(officer and public safety question), never asked if the victim needed medical help or an ambulance, didnt ask about Christina (mentioned in the call)or others, didnt ask who they were with now,(imagine the neighbors that helped being mistaken for Castro when officer arrived) , the call taker didnt log the name of Ariel Castro,the first time into the call and wasted time repeating the question. Asked for a clothing description not a physical.. Didn't, ask if the suspect was armed, did he carry weapons and has he been known to be violent with the police in the past. A dispatchers primary job is to consider officer and citizen safety. Based on the questions asked there was no consideration made for the safety of the caller or of the officers. Responding officers had no idea what the suspect looked like, where he was, or if he was armed. This one dispatcher utter FAIL, most know the basic stuff he/she however seemed annoyed to even have to answer a call for help and do it correctly and safely. Totally and unequivocally unprofessional and should be fired post haste.”

“Who is this guy and company to define who then"cool kids" are. I've met some pretty cool kids in my lifetime. Some wore flannel shirts and wranglers, some wore goth clothes and heavy eye liner, some wore plaid shirts and polo shirts, plus size clothing, some wore Levi's and t shirts, some wore turbans, overalls, baggy pants, sweats, shorts. What made them cool was who they were as an individuals , their hearts, courage, the good they did for themselves and others, kindness, compassion, openness, friendliness and talents. There is no defining uniform for the "cool kid" because the cool kid makes that determination on their own. It's the person who us comfortable in their own skin and what is covering it is secondary to that.”

“Every good parent whether singular or two parents questions if they are doing the right things, saying the right things, giving the right things (not solely material) and somewhere in that we all come up short or will miss a step, mistakes will be made as it is in parenting and in life, but we keep trying and learning. Kids need to understand that most of all. Less about perfection, more about learning and correction all life long.”

“What a super mom this lady has been. Giving herself, yet so soft, so giving, so taking all the blame when she doesn't deserve any blame. On the other hand this boy is talking at her and in general like a stone-hearted, so stern, so devoid of kindness, especially when he is talking to his overly kind mom..

My goodness, I want to punch this 21 year old for the arrogant air to his approach to the wonderful mom... I guess thats what gets you when you are so humble and nice.... Thats what the society respects, and develops, arrogance, hard approach, even to the kindest most giving people around.”
