Re: “Jennings Osborne and the eye of the needle

Well Lawmatters I actually know firsthand about what was paid for at least one of these trials because as a young mom with 2 children and trying to pay for college I answered an ad in the paper and showed up for the cattle call he did for one of these trials. Once I was accepted and was told what I would get paid and I crunched the numbers I realized I would make more working at the mall job I had been offered. So no I can't speak for each and every trial but since you asked I felt I should let you know I am not some troll with a computer who is just badmouthing someone.Frankly the whole cattle call experience was creepy to say the least. Sorry if my experience with Mr. Osborne is different from yours. I can tell that you must have known him personally and are sensitive to negative comments.
My point with this article was really directed at Mr. Koon because I really couldn't tell if he was being complimentary to JO are was he passively aggressively showing the world that JO was a hoarder of things and also had some abnormal obession with his own image. Lawmatters you know what passive aggressive is right? Sure you do since that is the tactic you are using to discount my experience with JO. We don't all have warm fuzzy memories.

Re: “Jennings Osborne and the eye of the needle

I'm a little confused by this article. Is Mr. Koon saying Jennings did or didn't get into heaven? Jennings didn't give up any of his materialistic "stuff" so if I follow the logic that you have to to get into heaven then old Jennings didn't make the cut. The only thing that separated him from all his crap was death. Now his wife and daughter have been force to so yes hopfully they have learned the lesson about " the eye of the needle" parable.
Was also surprised when Koon said he was surprised about the condition of the property when he drove into the gates. REALLY? I for years have noticed how the compound looked run down and ghetto. Anyone else remember how the lights that asked God to bless George W had many bulbs burned out. It looked so bad and disrespectful.
Let's also not forget how he made his millions. He paid low wages to people to be human guinea pigs for drug trials.

Re: “West Memphis 3 defense claims new evidence of killer

The police have known for some time about the hair found in the tie and they haven't thought that was enough evidence. My guess is because it would be hard to prove since the kids had been inside the Hobbs house. So if they don't think it is solid enough then the media is once again telling a story based on hear say and that is just wrong. Heck yes it should be investigated but the story that I saw on channel 7 was just based purely on the story of one person and what he told others and my point before was that it is just what started the whole case against Damion in the first place. Haven't we learned anything at all from the past. You need cold hard facts or you are just stirring up trouble and convicting someone. Innocent until proven guilty is what I was lead to believe the way the system should work. Ask any of the West Memphis Three how they feel about being judged on what others say they heard .

Re: “West Memphis 3 defense claims new evidence of killer

didn't someone also say that they heard Damion Echols say he killed those little boys. Sounds to me like someone else is being railroaded on hear say.

Re: “Proud to live in West Little Rock

I thought it was the first of Janurary not the first of April because this article is like an April Fool's joke.

Re: “Duggars expecting 20th child

A few years back I contacted Liz Massey at KTHV and asked who was paying for the health care of this family (this was before the last child and the huge cost ). I was just curious if they paid their own insurance or were they on the state childrens health insurance program. Jim Bob said that they had Blue Cross and Blue Shield. But now I'm wondering what the excutives at BC&BS think of this decision to have yet another child. It must be getting costly for them to cover these people. Deserving people are turned away from treatments everyday due to preexsisting conditions. So the state isn't having to pay for their "gifts from god" but all the people who use BC&BS are having to pay if god forbid there are problems again.
