“Obviously no one here has actually seen how a newspaper is created. The ads are placed on the pages first, then whatever space is left over is filled with editorial. The actual ads are not seen by anyone until each 4-page form (single sheet of paper) is ready for the press. Only the pressmen see that actual paper as it comes off the end of the machine, and they usually only check to see that the ads are right-side-up. Unfortunately, there most likely was no intent to put a gun ad next to the Newtown story -- mistakes like that have been happening since Gutenberg.”

“There are alerts in place, though! You will never see an airline ad on the same page as a plane crash story. Someone dropped the ball!”

Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting: Newtown, Connecticut Administrators, Students Among Victims, Reports Say

Commented Dec 14, 2012 at 14:40:44 in Crime

“The most popular "pastime" for 20-35 year old males is "Call To Duty" -- a horrific, violent "game" of shooting, shooting, shooting. My 9-year-old grandson is addicted -- yet his 38-yr old father thinks it's OK. This is what's breeding these terrible tragedies -- and of course anyone can get a gun, anytime, anywhere. My country, 'tis of thee I weep.”

“I met Gov. Sununu when he broke the red ribbon a client's new facility in NH. He and the client waxed hilarious over some overtly racist joke, but that was when there might have been a dozen or so black people in the whole state. Unfortunately, Gov. S. hasn't gotten out much to see how the face of NH now looks a lot like the other 50 states.”

Colin Powell Endorses Obama For President

Commented Oct 25, 2012 at 09:16:15 in Politics

“When I met General Powell (then a Captain, me a Lieutenant) serving in Germany, I knew he would go as far you can in the US Army. Except for the UN --"Weapons of Mass Destruction" detour, he has been a man of honor, integrity and justice. Thankfully, there's at least one adult in the GOP room. Thank you, General, sir.”

hopeisalive on Oct 25, 2012 at 09:40:01

“What you have said about General Powell is something that I believe strongly about him as well. He will probably be villified by the far right again like in 2008, but he will stand with what he has said. Thank you for your service. f&f”

“Absolutely frightening! This is the kind of MD that the Nazi's would have loved. Dr. Mengele,who sent hundreds of thousands to their deaths in Auschwitz was a certified medical doctor. That this man can openly practice in Georgia -- where there several excellent medical schools and technological universities -- and be a representative in the US Congress -- is chilling beyond words. What's worse, is he's accepted as a leader. My country, 'tis of thee, I weep.”

“Who said Nazi's? LOL!!!”

DrTachyon on Oct 9, 2012 at 15:15:57

“Dangerously close to invoking Godwins Law on this post, but I understand the sentiment. A person claiming what Broun (R-S#!tkickerville) is claiming in the video is clearly someone completely divorced from reality. Such a person could potentially rationalize any action, no matter how ridiculous or destructive. That this person is seemingly well educated and has held professional positions both in his MD practice and in the congress in which peoples lives and livelihood clearly depended on his ability to make rational decisions is chilling.”

“That this is considered an assault is unbelievable. The photo was taken as the world -- finally -- stopped the killing and maiming in World War 2. Over 60 million people DIED and this one sailor was so overjoyed that he expressed his appreciation of LIFE by kissing a pretty girl, also in uniform. Unless you were alive on V-J Day, you'll never understand the emotions and sheer joy that the war was over.”

“Just because we had no voice against being involuntarily man-handled back then, does not make it acceptable to the woman being man-handled.”

“I'm sorry but there's really no excuse for grabbing a complete stranger and forcing yourself on them, I don't care what the circumstances are. He could have found dozens if not hundreds of ways to express his joy without forcing himself on a stranger who did not ask for it. I suppose by your logic if a college sports team wins a championship it's perfectly fine for the male supporters to force themselves on fellow female passerby. I mean after all it would be a celebration and they're in a good mood, right?

It's quite scary the excuses and justifications and whitewashing people will engage in to justify assault and rape. "Logic" like yours really helps clarify the fact that 1 out of 3 women in the world will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.”

“I'm sure Greta understood the emotions and sheer joy and excused George's behavior, but that still doesn't make this a romantic moment. You don't just go around grabbing strange women and kissing them no matter how much relief you and the world are experiencing.”

“Agreed that MOST of us are peaceful people and a great deal of us are simply asleep at the wheel. . But it is entirely too easy to obtain guns, ammo, protective gear, etc. We've lost Presidents, have almost always been at war in every century since founding, yet still have brainpower to conquer polio, put a man on the moon, and now go knocking on Mars' door. Oh, and create the Internet, so you and I can converse. Take away the guns and see how peaceful it is around here.”
