“Greed affects all ages and all classes. If it's not a banker getting his own at the cost of everybody else, then it's the WalMart maniac who brings pepper spray to a Thanksgiving sale. 2 completely different stories but it's pretty easy to find the common denominator.”
“Class C fireworks? That's consumer grade roman candles and black-cats...hardly considered and explosive threat.”

“M-80 is 1/4 stick of dynamite.
I'm sure you wouldn't care if someone tossed a dozen or so lit M-80s into your home, would you? After all, they're just Class C fireworks.”

“Class C also includes ammunition and several other things including fireworks. We just don't know if the guy had firecrackers or bullets but class C is considered minimum hazard. Still, he wasn't there, with that, for any good reason. I'm assuming the guy didn't drive from CA to MI and go to a Mosque he doesn't believe in----with any kind of explosives----to worship.”

“Explosive sounds so much dramatic in a headline. I'm waiting to hear Palin and Beck blamed for this.”
“This post is a little misleading. The controversial "charge" call came at the end of the 4th quarter, while the clip of the J.R. Smith dunk, shown above, is a play at the end of the 1st quarter. I think a few people are saying the 4th quarter call was indeed charging, while others are saying that the 1st quarter clip is obviously not charging.
I agree that the 1st quarter J.R. Smith dunk over Neal was not charging, but the call in the 4th quarter (Carmello Anthony layup into Manu Ginobili) was indeed charging and the refs made the correct call.”
“You make a decent point, but to say that "no one told the press much of what was said at them" is forgetting that these are the "Whitehouse PRESS Correspondents Dinners". The people attending these dinners ARE the press. I personally enjoy them, just like any good comedian (ie. Bill Hicks), it is much easier to swallow the idiocracies of the system with humor than it is with any kind of brute truth.”
