Science Editor: Fox News Told Me Not To Talk About Climate Change

“It always comes back to economics. Conservatives are in the pockets of corporate interests, whose bottom lines are compromised by the prospect of having to lower profits in order to lessen their impact on the planet. And that is anathema. That's why it is SO easy to find deniers who are taking corp. cash.”

“I disagree that it is poor. Fake, yes. Poor, no. The history of religious fakes is fascinating, and I've researched many of them. The Shroud has value unto itself just because of its own history, just as ancient graffiti in Egyptian tombs has value.”

“Mary Matalin, back in 2008, said she really liked Fred Thompson as a candidate because he was so educated on the issues. And yet he never had a single answer on a single question, constantly promising position papers and answers LATER. When he was asked about Terri Schiavo, he said it was ancient history, and he'd have to refresh his memory on a subject that was only a couple of years old. Mary Matlin's guy, indeed.”

“The ironic bit to this story is the fact that many years ago, while working for an Illinois politician, Rove stole some letterhead from the opponent and printed up phony invites to a non-existent gathering in order to attract homeless people to the opponent's Chicago office. Specifically the invite promised "free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing." It was a crass, awful event, and Rove's entry into politics.”

“Having lived in Greece for a while, I can attest that they've NEVER been in a good position. Honestly, I believe it's a cultural thing. Nobody wanted them in the European Union for a good reason. It's not a hard working culture, and they regularly blame everybody else for their shortcomings. I constantly heard how the Marshall Plan (ancient history) had caused so many of their modern ills. Look at how they handled the Olympics.”

“I hate to disagree with just about ALL of you, but speaking as somebody who's on a plane nearly every week (Charlotte coming up, then Dallas, then San Fran, etc.), I'm chronically infuriated by people who act like they've never been to the airport before, or haven't read a single newspaper since 9/11. Just because your metal contraband hasn't set stuff off BEFORE doesn't mean it won't NEXT time. Before 9/11, I regularly could get through with keys, except at Boston Logan, where the detectors were always the most sensitive (which is why 9/11 continues to puzzle me).

I've seen women show up with the dumbest looking sandals that they complain about unbuckling, when they KNEW they were going to be flying. If you've got any kind of metal on you, expect problems. And as for her solution ("Here, look at my boobs"), that still holds things up. If you're going to get something as stupid as nipple rings, you shouldn't expect the rest of the world to deal with them on your behalf.

People complain about the lines, then they pull stuff like that.”

kardwell on Mar 30, 2008 at 01:22:21

“"pull stuff like" WHAT -- Wearing a nipple ring? Please tell me what body jewelry has to do with flight security? Have they ever made you remove your wedding ring, earrings or another piece of jewelry?

This woman wasn't asking the world to "deal" with her personal choice, she was trying to board a plane with her dignity intact.”

bogananda666 on Mar 28, 2008 at 17:16:17

“Metal contraband, what are you? You don't need no stinking metal all that is needed is a gum wrapper to set off an alarm.”

“Nipple rings are contraband now? Oh what horrible times we live in.

You act like she had cuban cigars in there or something.”

Valkyrie on Mar 28, 2008 at 13:51:26

“I don't care how often you fly, whizz. That woman and the rest of our countrymen and women PAY FOR THEIR TICKETS. I don't know of any other entity in the world where a person PAYS to be abused by complete strangers, not to mention the fact that many times, the payment is not honored (cancellations). Any other business in the world would've folded by now.

Oh, wait. The airlines HAVE folded. And we keep bailing them out.

As far as I'm concerned, this story should be front page. It IS a violation of civil liberties if not a violation of basic consumer rights.

Warmest,

LeftRight on Mar 28, 2008 at 13:37:19

“You're right, there are people out there who don't seem to realize that they are going to have to go through security. However, this woman was not one of those. She showed up wearing body jewelry that is not normally taken out, and went through the magnetometer WITHOUT setting it off. The fact that they wanded her after that is a) a violation, and b) their own damn fault. Further, insisting that she take out the rings when it was obvious that she wasn't a terrorist (witness the fact that she was MORE than willing to let a female TSA agent inspect the rings in privacy) and they were being unreasonable.”

BusGreg on Mar 28, 2008 at 12:45:33

“Hey wizzo, can I stand back and laugh when your privacy is violated and you are being embarrassed by socalled federal "authorities" .”

“I can't count how many times I've been in line behind some woman wearing a bunch of chunky metal jewelry that acted surprised that she had to take it off.”

“The young lady in the article has every RIGHT to have body ornamentation as you have to wear a wedding band (if you are married). What those boneheads did was violate her rights as an American

It's not the wait that bothers me it is the TSA agents. But for you as someone who flys every week I can see how you would be more concerned about the wait than the issue those waits must be very inconvieniencing for you.

The purpose of the Transportation Safety Administration Security Screener is to ensure deadly weapons are not taken aboard aircraft...Not harrass people for their own amusement and enforce their particular morals on the rest of us.

As it said in the article she had passed through the walk-through metal detector without incident. She was not holding up folks like you....It was the TSA agents who would have caused you to have to wait another minute or two.”

TheHandyman on Mar 28, 2008 at 11:19:06

“Ah! I see, between the high risk danger of someone hijacking or exploding an airplane with their nipple rings and the intrusive and invasive disregard for American's civil rights you'll take the loss of civil rights because you are inconvenienced! It is the intellectually and morally stupified individuals like you that got us into this situation. Forget that for years recommendations for armored doors on airplanes went disregarded by the FAA and the airlines that would have prevented 911. Or the FBI reports of the terrorists activities that had the govt. followed up on would have caught them. Instead you whine about being inconvenienced by fellow Americans rather than raging against the idiots who created this ineffectual, half-assed attempt at "security." If you don't like it, charter your own airplane!”
Whatever Happened To John Hughes?

Whatever Happened To John Hughes?

Commented Mar 25, 2008 at 17:39:43 in Entertainment

“This article is a bit amnesiac. Hughes also put out "Home Alone" which was not only dreck, it also spawned even worse sequels. "Breakfast Club" is far too cute, where it could have been great.

Uncle Buck and PLanes/Trains suffered from schmaltzy endings worthy of a Billy Crystal flick.

Daniel Stern obviously didn't learn much from him, or got hit in the head too many times in Home Alone, because he made (and acted badly in) the dreadful Rookie of the Year.

Hughes wrote" Reach the Rock" right down the street from me, and you can't even find it in a rental store. I think he disappeared because his muse deserted him. Sixteen Candles is excellent, and every subsequent film got worse and worse.”

“Very sad to see this. Years ago, on an AC plane bound from Toronto to the states, I saw a couple of guys violently flinging luggage from the cart to the belt into the belly of the plane, and laughing about it. The lady behind me started videotaping them, and a few seconds later the flight attendant stuck her head out the service door and yelled at them. "People in here can see you!" is what she yelled. Overall I like Air Canada, but stuff like this is bad PR. I've noticed United using a belt for gate checked luggage, which might help.”

“More paranoid delusions encouraged by the gun lobby. NOBODY is talking about disarming anybody. Get a grip. Nobody says you can't hunt. Nobody says you can't defend yourself. But registration, the ability to track down the origins of guns used in crimes, to prevent straw buying, and to ban the sale of guns that have no earthly sporting, self defense, or civilian use, THESE are what we're talking about.”
