    Quote from max.patch: “if you're a juror on a murder trial, you're not supposed to read news articles about the case. but if you do, you really shouldn't post about it on facebook. unless, of course, you want to get dismissed. ” not to mention a potential mistrial. I was juror on a murder trial years ago.

    I like a variety of weather (except bitter cold with ice, snow, etc.). I'm okay with cloudy and rainy, good thing because they tell me this area of Lower Alabama receives more rain than even Seattle (no reason to doubt that it's raining right now with scattered sunshine).

    Quote from Astro: “On one had you have to admire Belichick and New England for all of the success they have had. But unfortunately on the other hand like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens there is always that nagging question of where greatness ended and the cheating took over. ” no nagging question here. i leave that to the cry babies.

    Quote from Astro: “Donham’s First Law of Censorship,“Most citizens are implacably opposed to censorship in any form — except censorship of whatever they personally happen to find offensive” ” i would add, many citizens oppose "censorship noise" when a private entity or individual refuses to spread what they feel is "garbage" or is against their policy, that includes big corporations like CBS. instead vote with your dollars or viewership, save the censorship argument for governments where it belo…
