My elderly dad walks with a walker in his Tanglewood neighborhood and there are always some unleashed dogs. There are two very pretty but always unleashed and sometimes agressive labs as well as a black dachsund that is always running loose. The owners need to be more responsible with their pets but the city needs to issue citations to owners that don't keep their dogs on leash.Regarding pitbulls as a breed, there are certain characteristics that come naturally. Just as a pointer will instinctively point and a retriever will retrieve. some fighting breeds will be agressive.

My heart hurts for this man and his family and also the law enforcementofficers that put their lives on the line. This sounds like a very sad and tragic situation that will leave a wound on the hearts of all who knew him.
I really liked your comments but I think you got Memorial Day confused with Veteran's Day. Memorial Day is the day for us tohonor the soldiers that did lose their lives in war. Memorial day was started after the Civil War and it used to be called "decoration day" because people would go to the gravesites of the fallen soldiers and decorate them with flags and flowers. Veteran's day is the day that we honor all of the military, those that made it home and those that didn't and those that are still "over there".
Is chupacabra really low in fat? Will a chupaburger replacethe emu burger or ostrich burgers on nouvelle cuisinemenus? I think Rachel Ray might be doing a segmenton thirty minute chupa meals next Tuesday.
Actually if you look on the website of the senate,you can view the bill (introduced on April 1,2009) by Senator Rockefeller) and a summary of the bill. This bill is to appoint a PANEL of cybersecurity advisors for the Dept of Commerce. This bill was read twice and then went to committee, specifically the committee that oversees legislation regarding commerce. About Eric Holder and the possible prosecution of Dick Cheney: Mr Holder is required to look at the possibility of prosecuting Mr Cheney because of the torture (that included waterboarding) of detainees at Guantanamo. This is because of a treaty signed by many nations, including the United States, denounced the torture and set forth rules regarding detainment and treatment of enemies captured during wartime. We, as a country, want others to observe the same rights for our soldiers. This is the job of the Attorney General, no matter if it is Mr Holder or anyone else, to see that the laws of our country are upheld. This does include prosecution of war crimes which is what Mr Cheney is alleged to have authorized. Prosecution of such is not "siding with the terrorists" but rather upholding the Constitution and the treaties and laws of the USA.
The emergency rooms cannot turn away any person that is in a medical crisis.
Forget the wedding, just focus on the honeymoon. Lots of Luck!!!!!!
It's hard to say that our healthcare system is great the way it is. Too many people can't afford healthcare and have to wait until they are in a health crisis at which time they can go to the emergency rooms and not get turned away. I don't think people want free healthcare but rather affordable healthcare. Regarding: the comment about nobody had health insurance when you were a kid, the world of diseases has changed. With the emergence of antibiotic resistant infections, the prices of medications has skyrocketed, as well as the costs of testing and care. The US ranks 27th in infant mortality and our life expectancy is almost 18 months less than nations with widely accessible healthcare. Something needs to change, because we are not a third world nation. As far as Obamacare, look at the whitehouse website to see the www.whitehouse.gov for the proposed changes. Don't listen to the commentators or pundits. But it is ironic that the very best healthcare in our country is only available (for free) to the people that are making decisions about our healthcare, i.e. the politicians, both active and retired.
Please check your facts. The official white house website www.whitehouse.gov shows the remarks and the official proclamation signed by our President Obama, when he signed the proclamation denoting May 7,2009 as The National Day of Prayer. As far as ramadan, yes, the whitehouse website and also the website of the US Dept of State (http//iraq.usembassy.gov/iraq) will both show when you do a site search for "ramadan" that the first observance of a muslim holiday by a US president was by President Jefferson. President Dwight D Eisenhower and many others have also sent official greetings for muslim holidays. It is in the spirit of tolerance and religious freedom. On the State dept website, you can see photos of the OCT 15, 2005 white house ramadan dinner hosted by President George W Bush with several ambassadors and muslim leaders.
