    It was avoidable and she didn’t avoid it. My point is the emphasis on texting is a waste of time. DISTRACTED DRIVING is the problem whatever the cause.

    psst, i didn’t say any of them were GOOD ideas simply things people do every day that get them into accidents while leaving no clues so the over-reaction to texting while driving is just that.. an over reaction. Distracted driving whatever it’s cause is a bad idea. Did I mention the hair brushing, finger nail polishing, face shaving, book reading, dog patting IN THE DRIVERS LAP etc? Then there’s the hot ash from a cigarette falling in your lap or into your bra (and yes that happened to me about 30 years ago). How about the guy giving himself (or getting) a hand job while driving, yeah.. he’s not distracted. So texting while driving is a bad idea can we move on to something we don’t all know already?

    I’m glad she was happy. Everyone needs to take a pill with regard to texting as it is not the only distraction out there.. it’s just the only one that leaves clues. Opening a soda, changing the radio station, reaching for the change for a toll or sneezing are just SOME of the reasons behind fatal car crashes. We just don’t know it because you can’t tell that someone had en episode of sneezing fit just before the crash.

    Not sure about your source and if we take them as fact, where does that leave Gay Women?

  • April 4, 2014 at 4:19pm

    Good point AND still wrong that one small donation on one issue brought about this furor. There are so many more important ways to judge a man (or woman).

    Assuming you are referring to those who are sexually active in relatively anonymous ways with multiple partners, might I point out that you are referring to a subset of the human race, not a subset of gay people and definitely not all gay people. But perhaps you meant something else?

  • April 4, 2014 at 4:05pm

    Comments which rely on overarching generalizations “…they are all cowards,…”, condemnations or kudos are why cogent discourse about politics and religion is simply not possible especially in an anonymous forum such as this one. Feel free to vent your spleen and know that you are making absolutely NO difference in the world while you are doing so. (myself included). I think I’ll go do something useful instead. See you the next time a story tickles my fancy to write!

    #1. I don’t agree with California’s Proposition 8 and if I lived there I would have actively opposed it.
    #2. I completely agree that this appears to be a case where the public outcry is just plain ignorant with the result Mr Eich losing his job being a great injustice.

    NOW Mozilla should feel ashamed and apologize for creating a hostile work atmosphere. If I were politically active in any way shape or form and worked for Mozilla, I’d be seriously afraid that any time management changed, (to one that didn’t agree with my politics), I might lose my livelihood.

    My family has been providing assistance to two children in other parts of the world through this organization and will continue to do so. We are Christians who married each other with a life long promise of faithfulness to God and each other. We are raising our children as Christians and always make an effort to respect those with whom we disagree on matters of faith and doctrine. We recognize that some denominations of Christians would not recognize our right to exist as loving, caring, Christians in their world because we are both female. We appreciate World Vision not allowing that dispute among Christians to color their hiring decisions.

    Hmm, that judge is “JohnsTon not johnson” but he’s a juvenile court judge in massachusetts with the same first name as the one reported here

  • March 21, 2014 at 3:41pm

    of course there are the ones who started this whole mess… then there are the nurses who are caring for her (or trying to) under the guidelines given to them by the doctors who screwed this up

  • March 21, 2014 at 3:40pm

    While I agree that it is horrible, careful not to paint the medical staff who are taking care of her as the bad guys here.

    I went to the Mass.gov website to try and learn more about the Judge. Finding the Juvenile Court System pages I thought it would be BOSTON (Suffolk County) but for some reason the Judge is an Essex County Judge with so much info on his bio… take a look:

    I don’t know why I’m going to bother commenting as the people who I’d like to talk to about their responses, didn’t pay attention to what the man said so why would they pay attention to anything I have to say.

    Those of you who deride him for begging for scraps or flay him for not being a real expert only one of those “actors” you weren’t listening. The point of his testimony was that people aren’t talking about Alzheimer’s so it’s not getting the attention it deserves and quite simply it’s not being talked about among the “powerful” in Washington, nor is it being talked about among the everyday Joe. Perhaps someone of celebrity like himself can make a difference by talking about it. He can’t find a cure himself but he can encourage those who can.

    As an actor, he has sufficient funds and following to begin making a difference by talking about it in any and all forums including the congress. He has experienced first hand, the impact Alzheimers has on family and friends of the patient and knows what it costs financially so he stepped up to do something about it. He’s a comedian and with such a serious topic, that he can bring it to light with humor (his style of humor is not appreciated by some) keep it light enough of a conversation that perhaps we’ll even talk about it longer.

    Famous people have the power to move others into action around pet projects. I for one find this project worth taking some time to learn more about. http://www.HilarityForCh

    He married his ex-wife’s adopted daughter, one he had helped raise if I recall correctly, and that was the end of any doubt in my mind that he is pedophile. Assuming for one moment he is brilliant as an artistic talent, that in no way makes up for his actions.

    If only… I read a Sci-Fi/Fantasy book one time that had a character like Woody Allen who had repeatedly assaulted a young girl until one day, a mind reader saw in the mind of his victim, what the man had done and decided to take action. Taking those memories from the victim, the horror, terror, pain etc and magnifying it before placing them in a repeating loop into the man’s mind to play over and over and over again, forever.

    That’s the punishment he deserves. Perhaps that is what he will get in the “next life”.

    Do you really have to insult gay men everywhere like that?

    Honestly, it does disturb me that a) So many people will insult the man who is the President of the United States and I hope they are not disparaging the office itself and b) So many people still think it’s an insult to call someone ‘Gay’. You can do better.

    Mr. President, it is with the utmost sincerity that I ask you, is it really appropriate for you to speak out on such matters while you hold office? Sure you might think it but do you really have to SAY it! I think of the old episodes of West Wing (yes, I know.. talk about a liberal!) where the President was reminded by his staff that it wouldn’t be appropriate for him to weigh in on certain things. It really is important for our President to know when to keep his mouth shut and President Obama has never showed any such inclination.

    I am a Christian Libertarian/Conservative who also happens to be Gay. I am dismayed by the hateful vitriol the couple/owners of the establishment face as a result of their efforts to stick to the principles they believe in. If we are going to continue recognizing “hate” as a crime then perhaps it needs to be extended to this type of attack. I have NO issue with a business owner making a principled decision as long as they don’t complain when their other clients choose to go elsewhere for services rather than support (financially) that decision. I have a HUGE issue with hateful threats no matter the disagreement. My thoughts and prayers are with all involved, especially the new couple turned away AND the business owners dealing with hateful rhetoric.

    Time to invest in STARBUCKS! I applaud and support the courage of a CEO telling his investors, there are some things money can’t buy. Making the right choice in support of families (GAY families) can’t be bought by narrow minded stock holders.

    While the national security implications are of concern, the underlying facts are that these people showed lack of respect for their closest family. Lack of responsibility to those with whom they have shared vows. Lack of self-control or good judgement which might have given them the ability to move past whatever attraction they had. Pure self-indulgence as with many in our culture today.
