Re: “Friday: News headlines and open line

Steve,

I agree with you that something needs to be done to any industry that receives "conflict metals," as you have identified in the sad story of your link. This is one case where I will not support Commander Spock's Vulcan philosophy of "The needs of the many out weight the needs of the few."
Let me now switch gears. During my tenure as an Environmental Engineer for the Air Force, I was often queried about a position on Climate Change. Most often it was promulgated by individuals who did not perceive it to be of a man-made origin. My advise was to pretend...just pretend the reports were true and hedge one's bets against a possible outcome of overheating the planet. In my way of thinking, most methods of saving energy (sans the one you have identified) would only bring good benefits to consumers. In addition, perhaps by slowing down the amount of CO2 into the atmosphere, say, for the next 50 years...perhaps we could then garner enough data to determine if the threat was man-made or if, as the opposition claims, it is a naturally concurring event. I would feel more comfortable if we adopted the same strategy of the horse racing bookies who bet against themselves whenever a long shot 100 to one pony suddenly gets a rash of wagers for no apparently reason. Your thoughts, please.

Max,

A favor please...please keep an eye on this story and see if Bishop is sentenced to the same length of time as the five years handed down to the permanent resident who is now in a Texas jail because she wasn't aware she was not eligible to vote.

Max,

A favor please...keep an eye on this story and see if he gets the same length of time that the permanent resident lady in Texas got for accidentally voting. Thanks!

Re: “Bank robbery suspect caught after cab getaway

She should have known that the only way she could get away with a bank robbery was to be on the other side of the counter...Wells Fargo could have taught her the trade.

Re: “Kane Webb leaving Parks and Tourism for Walmart

Maybe he uttered the terminating word and is checking out of the temporal?

Re: “Proposal coming to end teacher fair dismissal law for all of LR School District

Ho guy wrote
"...They are just going to be treated like normal employees at normal businesses, and I view that as a good thing..."


I can read that statement of yours quite well...it is code for "take away Fair Dismissal". You have yet to explain how that is a "good thing." Thank you for your kind blessing, however, my heart has been blessed by a higher power and yours is not needed.
