A certain well known quarterback, a few years ago, was suspended for "only" five games forRead More a sexual assault on a defenseless woman. And he was a predator for that "one night only". I had to laugh at the TV commercial, depicting this quarterback, with his wife and baby, praising God and religion. Such damage control.

I hope that this is it for our Raven's and getting into trouble with the law. Kenny Pahr has aRead More point, we don't know all the facts surrounding the night Ray and his wife (Fiance at the tiem) got into the fight. Hopefully he and his wife are in counseling to make sure none of this happens again. It's stuff like this that makes for a great conversation starter with our children about domestic violence( regardless if it were the man or the woman doing the abusing), drug abuse, interfering with law enforcement, etc. so they won't get into trouble and will understand how to treat other people in this world. Kudos to the NFL for suspension without pay and Ray Rice for publicly accepting responsibility and the punishment for his actions.

Bryan- critical thinking should not be defined as displaying an ability to perform as expected. ItRead More should be analytical and improvisational. That, however, leads to students challenging their instructors and is time consuming. It also demands instructors with hubris. Thinking is also critical in areas other than math. I cede the point that I am not currently involved in the process yet have extensive experience dealing with the product of the system. I see no current evidence that there is any ability to problem solve in the education system. There is an ability to follow procedure as taught, not critique or improvise. Our foreign educated employees have much better skills in those areas.

Mike, just think about it What PRIVATE business do we have in Maryland? Under Armour, a fineRead More company. Do they make all their clothing in the US? McCormick - they package and combine spices and flavorings, often imported, and are thinking of moving elsewhere. Johns Hopkins, which researches many things for the government. A handful of bio/chemical companies - that often are bought out by companies domiciled elsewhere when they reach a certain size. Several companies that shuffle money around. Headquarters of several large defense contractors - mostly in Montgomery County, close to the federal money teat. Other than that, what? No large companies that MAKE things. Baltimore ranks as the country's largest branch office town. The state is a nice place to live, but not very exciting - except for the chance of dying violently. I'm a native, by the way.

I'm not defending these people by no means but it is so hard dealing with one autistic person andRead More for them to deal with two? In NJ once a person reaches 21 they are aged out of the "system". What happens when autistic children become adults? No programs for parent of autistic adults, no help! Nobody unless you have experienced it yourself understands............ People who are parents of autistic adults needs tons of help, they become desperate because they don't have any options.
sonia stewart July 24, 2014 at 09:28 pm
It's very easy to condemn the parents and make cracks about them being on drugs. I was a marriedRead More adult when I had my children and Thank God they were all healthy, just active. I had more than enough challenges raising them to be responsible adults. I really can't judge those parents. I know there are plenty of programs out there that are overwhelmed or are no more than a nice name with no substance about them. There are people out there who are fearful of their children. They don't know when they'll hurt themselves or maybe burn down the house.

I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.

If I recall correctly "organic" means they were fertilized with "natural"Read More compounds. Beside being cheaper, I think I prefer my consumables to be fertilized with nitrates, etc. that are made by artificial means. They are guaranteed to be pure without any chance of contaminants.

So sick of politicians using anything and everything to get them noticed. We should not even beRead More talking about this and would not be if our borders were as protected as the American people are made to believe. Our country is in great need, perhaps that 1% haven't noticed but children in this country go to bed every night hungry and homeless. I am sorry that these immigrant children are suffering in their country but until we take care of our own, I fail to see the rationale in taking on someone else's problems. We are fast becoming a country full of opportunists and let's not even get into how DUMB we are. Very sad....
