88 Minutes

By DLFerguson, published on Apr 21, 2008

...was highly disappointed with 88 MINUTES.

Dr. Jack Gramm (Al Pacino) is a popular Seattle college professor who also is a nationally renowned forensic psychologist who’s made a sizeable fortune from his work profiling serial killers for the FBI and various police departments around the country. Gramm’s latest success was in convicting Jon Forster aka “The Seattle Slayer” (Neal McDonough). Forster maintains that he’s innocent and when one of Gramm’s students turns up murdered in the exact same way as Forster’s... (more)

Wal - Mart To Tighten Gun Sale Procedures

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 15, 2008

... Wal-Mart can refuse to sell you the new weapon. Still with me? Good.

Furthermore, the stupid punk who absconded with your Mossberg and used it to hold up some Iranian-owned Stop and Rob isn’t going to readily admit that he lifted the weapon from you and you’re going to be seen by the police as some accomplice in the crime – even if you reported it stolen. Sorry, that’s just how screwed up our judicial system is these days.

The whole plan is part of a coalition of retailers established by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg as part of his Responsible Firearms Retailer... (more)

Spring Time In San Francisco: Drums And Slip-N-Slide

By Digidave, published on Apr 14, 2008

...out along the south hill at Dolores park and countless women (some topless, a few completely in the buff) going down the make-shift water slide only to run back up in line to go down again. People had sparklers and the occasional firework went off.

All this ended, of course, when the police officers arrived to enforce the closing of the park. Although this was obviously a victimless crime, the adhoc sip-n-slide spring party, naked women and all, was shut down.

Still: The weened has reminded me why I love San Francisco. Weather like this can't be beat - but to bolster that,... (more)

What In God's Name Were You Thinking?

By nhemerson, published on Mar 31, 2008

...a deranged transient, or serial killer. It wasn't due to an unknown sickness or misdiagnosis from a doctor. Instead, the girl died from untreated diabetes. Why untreated? Because her family chose to pray instead of seek medical help for her. THAT'S RIGHT, THEY CHOSE TO PRAY.

When police asked the girl's parents what had happened, the parents, Dale and Leilani Neumann, believe she died because they apparently didn’t have enough faith. As absolutely baffling as that sounds, it was their honest, official answer. Police said the cause of death was diabetic ketoacidosis,... (more)

L.A. Sanctuary Status Makes Mayor Libel For Teen's Murder

By D. E. Carson, published on Mar 30, 2008

... mayor’s office has chosen to turn a blind eye to the issue. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has maintained L.A.’s Sanctuary City policy allowing the most violent of vermin to walk the streets of the city with impunity. Additionally, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton are in lock step with Mayor Villaraigosa and have refused to enforce Federal immigration law in spite of some formal displays of cooperation offered by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

The simple truth is this: Los Angeles is a sanctuary city where any... (more)

A Lesson In Road Rage

By Lila M., published on Mar 26, 2008

...who becomes aggravated due to heavy traffic, the nature of other drivers, or simply because he/she is having a bad day. She was also not a male 18-28 as the AAA statistics represent. So really, anyone can snap at anytime. In any case, if it gets too out of hand it’s just best to call the Police, and let them handle it, it will be a better reality check for those “road ragers” who just can’t seem to let it go.

And if you find yourself being the enraged driver the next time someone cuts you off, or makes an unnecessary move whether intentional or not, take a... (more)

4,000 And Counting...

By Lila M., published on Mar 26, 2008

...that might disagree with me about this being a great country…travel a bit and you will see how convenient it is that we have things as simple as gas stations on every corner, giant supermarkets with thousands of food items in several brands, maintained highways and the freedom to contact the police anytime we feel the need to be protected.

It’s time to care again and realize that we are headed for doom if we don’t. The Taliban has regrouped back in Afghanistan and Al Qaeda is back to work training in Pakistan. In the meantime there is no plan, no strategy, no thought of how... (more)

...town gearing up for its big Fourth of July weekend. Amity Island residents and merchants depend on the summer tourist dollars to support them through the fall and winter so they’re not happy when the mangled body of a girl is washed up on the beach. They’re even less happy when Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) determines that the girl was the victim of a shark attack and plans to close the beaches. Town Mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) assures the merchants and residents that everything will be fine. Mayor Vaughn has a positively brilliant genius for... (more)

Cellfish Airlines Want Cell Phone Usage

By Lila M., published on Feb 28, 2008

...other electronic devices had caused a problem during flight. A Carnegie Mellon University study conducted about four years ago also found that portable electronics, not just cell phones, interfere with airplane systems especially GPS.

I believe it is a good idea to have access to use a cell phone on a flight,BUT only in an emergency situation where you need to contact your family or the police. But I do notthink it’s a good idea to add yet another distraction to a crucial environment where if it gets too loud or annoying, you don’t have the choice to just leave.
