Yada yada yada: Our favorite 'Seinfeldisms,' 25 years later
Thu Jul 3, 2014
David Puddy's excuse for painting his face before heading to a Devils-Rangers Stanley Cup playoff game: "Gotta support the team." Jerry at the car rental counter: "You know how to take the reservation; you just don't know how to HOLD the reservation. That's the important part, the holding." Ela …
Kansas city shuts down boy's 'little free library'
Fri Jun 20, 2014
Man, is common sense ever out the window with the dishwater in early 21st-century Kansas, if not the whole country. Not only that, but those who made this decision appear to have serious cases of Napoleonic syndrome. Small(-minded) people wanting to show everyone how big they can be and failing …
Emotional goodbye: Police dog whimpers at partner's funeral
Thu Jun 12, 2014
In reply to: Marie-281019 #2Those animals do indeed know. We had to put one of our two dogs down on May 30th. The dog that survives, Mojo, hasn't been the same since then. The clueless really ought not discuss $#!+ that they don't know.
Ron Goldman's dad: 20 years after O.J. Simpson saga, grief 'is like yesterday'
Wed Jun 11, 2014
In reply to: texasnana #2Amen. My younger brother passed away of non-natural causes a few years ago when he was a few weeks shy of 51. My father doesn't talk about it and I don't ask, but from what his wife (she's not my mother) tells me when the subject comes up between the two of us, I know t …
D-Day vet: 'I don't want to be a hero for anybody'
Fri Jun 6, 2014
That's a selfless sentiment on the part of Mr. Blakey but I think that anyone who participated in the D-Day landing, either from the sea or from the air, was/is a hero. As I've gotten older, I've become a lot more cognizant of the sacrifices, some more ultimate than others, that …
Violinists booted from US Airways flight
Tue May 27, 2014
No way does one of my guitars make it onto a flight on which I'm a passenger. One of those wooden hard-shell cases would be no match for an airline-type baggage handler. Fortunately, my friends back East are most understanding about that and have usually been able to come up with a "l …
'The system failed': Man who never served 13-year sentence asks for clemency
Fri Apr 18, 2014
For reasons mentioned in some of these posts, putting this guy in prison now would be akin to cutting one's nose off to spite one's face. On a practical level, between leaving his family without a breadwinner, the tab for which taxpayers would pick up if said family had to go on the dole; costing an …
Support pours in for mom accused of leaving kids in hot car
Wed Apr 16, 2014
In reply to: 1SGFitzsWife4ID #1.3 Sometimes, the employer isn't willing to and won't reschedule the interview. I know that from experience; do you? Probably not if you think in such casual terms about it, but thanks for your oh-so-cavalier suggestion.
KISS: Hall of Fame induction 'vindication' for fans
Fri Apr 11, 2014
I saw KISS in 1976 (on the "Destroyer" tour) as a favor to my brother whose parents told him that he could go to the concert only if his older brother (me) went with him. While I've never been their biggest fan (tunes like "Firehouse", "Cold Gin", and "Detroit Rock City" got my attention but no …
