But aren't bike path nazis a tad over the edge as well? After living in Europe where all ride bikesRead More as a matter of course, despite infirmities and age, it's a dilemma to me to choose between the abject virulence "expressed" to me by bike path nazis versus choosing to risk being hit by the equally frazzled and out of control motorists. Wishing there was more room for less intolerance all around.. I am Gertrude Parsons and I endorse my message.

I am so sick of these bike riders. They have no business on roads period. The other day one guyRead More was on his bike during RUSH HOUR and basically blocking and holding up traffic. Right next to him was a bike path but he was too selfish to use it. What really gets me is if one of these type A personality bikers gets hit - it will be the drivers fault - when they have no business riding I their bikes in traffic anyway. Last year I nearly hit a guy who came out of no where as I was exiting my street or get on a main road. Cyclists riding near cars should be against the law.
Open carry laws in some states provides more comfort for gun owners. But is Target's move an effort to protect everyone else?
David Montgomery July 8, 2014 at 10:08 pm
My biggest dilemma everyday is deciding which one to carry: my 9, 40 or 45.

David, my brother, please make sure you don't bring any of them into Target or Chipotle.=)

Well, making Target stores into "gun free zones" is having predictable results. Thugs nowRead More know that Target is a place to find plenty of unarmed victims, and customers are paying the price. http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/armed-robbers-shopping-for-victims-at-target/
Three new elephants are making their home a the National Zoo; they are supposed to debut to the public Monday. National Zoo photo

It's irresponsible & misleading that the reporter made no mention of the detrimental effects ofRead More prolonged confinement of elephants on their physical & mental health. If "philanthropist" Mr Rubenstein cared about the elephants' welfare & long term well being, he would have funded their transport to an elephant sanctuary along w/ a sizable donation to support their care. Zoos are misery for wild animals.

Tons more kids get killed by cars hitting them than they do from burning up inside one. Why isn'tRead More anyone freaking over that? This happens, but it's not like there are a hundred thousand children cooking in cars every year.

Sorry, I never, EVER, left my child in my car. Never. I was and am a mom. My son is now 22 yo.Read More NO EXCUSE. I've never left a pet either, much less my child. Are these people sitting on their brains? Guess so.

Its a rough world out there and people forget. It looks like the Atlanta guy may have something moreRead More than meets the eye going on with his case. I certainly hope not but that's what the cops are hinting at. In the case of some of these people that go to bars or where ever and leave kids in cars they need to be dealt with harshly. However it seems like we have lost all ability in this country to make rational decisions case by case at every level of this government.
Nobody can pronounce Cameloparid meteor shower but all of North America can watch it. (Photo courtesy of NASA.)

That's "Cameleopardid". Article varies between that and "Cemeleopardid". NamedRead More after constellation "Camelopardalis", which means "giraffe", and yes, that's literally "camel" + "leopard": giraffes have long necks, like camels, and spots, like leopards! All words may come from Greek, but the Greek who first saw a giraffe wasn't very imaginative in picking a name.
May Camelopardalid meteor shower peak.

Get a blanket, find a dark field, trip out, and enjoy the light show.
