Stachybotrys ? Or mold. Toxic black mold or just common mold.
You eat mold a lot. Cheese is one example. Stachybotrys is dangerous and toxic and causes a lot of harm.
Ken, there is a law that forces disclosure if the landlord or seller knows of the presence.
What I fail to understand is why someone would remain in any place that causes them harm. Move. Get out, go somewhere else. If you value your health more than anything, especially a crappy apartment. What the heck are you doing living there? And why would you move back in????
Glad the jury tossed this one. Hopefully the family will move away from SB and take their litigious butts elsewhere. Curious if these adults were smokers? And what is the husbands line of work? Does he work in and around chemicals?

Someone, somewhere is offended by any and every conceivable thing.
Hell, I am deeply offended by iammadeofyou and think he should be immediately removed from public and our community.
The reason so many people are upset is that this issue, is a non-issue. Yet for some asinine reason, it became an issue. Why? Because one idiots feelings were hurt. Is it possible that that one person's feelings were the problem? Not the inanimate object?
If we placate to every whiner, every complainer, what will we be? Certainly not a community that lives on common ground.
Iammadeofyou, Get on a plane and go see how most of the world lives and your petty, tripe meaningless complaints about this issue will pale in comparison. They will disappear quickly as you see first hand how most people live and survive. They dont have time for such meaningless complaints or petty concerns over what may or may not have happened to their ancestors. We all have ancestors who were denied freedom, suffered discrimination and were systematically murdered. Its happened to every ones family at some point in history. Every one.
Get over yourself and maybe, just maybe you can muster the empathy towards people who are actual suffering, today. And not placate to some paltry, petty activist who is obviously in dire need of validation and perhaps a hug.

Its crazy to think that these business owners dont understand the most basic premise of business. Profits >= costs - income
But then again, most of these folks are born and raised locals who spent their entire lives under the wings of some benefactor. Most were academics and have been taught that money is something that evil people make from doing bad stuff...
Regardless, the amazing thing about business is that its blind to anything but reality. Either sell something that people want at a price that is tenable, or not. There isnt much in between...

Atta boy Ken. There is not much in life more satisfying than kicking the ass of some racist, bigoted ahole who cant shut their trap.
Its obvious that our iammadeofyou is a student who hasnt spent much time outside the bubble of academia. He wouldnt last a week in the real world as his skin is far too thin and his ideals far too cloudy for any normal workplace or dynamic environment. He's a HR nightmare. The type of person always crying and complaining... We all know the type and we all hate the type...
Only a coddled, bottle fed academic would equate grammar to intelligence. Its important that he realize that some of the most successful, intelligent and lauded people in our country suffer from dyslexia. Did you realize that your comments are so insensitive iammadeofyou? You basically insulted those people challenged by such things... Ironically, while trying to stand on your own moral soapbox and admonish others for much less. That makes you a putz by the way. A real mashugana.

Yes, indeed iamamdeofyou, it appears that you are a moron. Thanks for helping us prove that point. I believe the venerable Forest Gump said it best when he said "stupid is as stupid does..."
You wrote: "Read over your comment and see how many grammatical errors, misspellings and/or typos you made, then come back and tell me who the moron is."
Did you really finish a sentence with a preposition when you're trying to admonish someone else for poor grammar? Sorta, kinda, makes you appear a fool. Doesn't it?
One of the most telling signs of an idiot is how upset they get when they're called an idiot... You exemplified this phenomenon better than most. Congrats! Maybe you should stay in the sandbox if playing with the big kids makes you scared.
Ken, You were beaten twice? Didnt you learn the first time that skinheads are dumb asses with violent tendencies? Hopefully you didnt try and "talk" with them like one of these moron academic advocates that populate our community. You know the type. They're the cause of this entire incident. Idiots who have been coddled and catered to their entire lives and couldn't last a week in the wild without their pacifiers and warm blankets and the cover of their mothers breasts...
For the record: I dont waste my time editing posts for perfection. The point of these comments is not to adhere to some style guide or standard, but to communicate openly and without fear of retaliation or otherwise. Something our iammadeofyou seems to miss completely.

Wow, so one or two people are offended by something an innocuous as a teepee and proceed to jump over any and every one that disagrees with their very one sided view... One even goes so far as to advocate that anonymous posters be outlawed, ironically from an anonymous ID. Either someone is a half wit or they're confused. Which is it Iammadeofyou? Are you a moron or a just confused, very confused person?
Either way the original complainer is a baby. Its not the world that needs to adapt, its you. Get over yourself. Just because you are hurt or offended by something doesnt mean that the offense is 1) real 2) worthy 3) matters at all.
You hit all three in this case. The world is a big scary place and 99.999999999999999999% of people dont give a damn about your perceived interpretation of some maligned historical events. Not too mention that who the hell do you think you are to speak for all Native Americans? Talk about ego!
It sounds like some coddled whiners were told they were smart far too often by someone who was just being nice. I'll go ahead and tell you the truth since you've obviously been lied to for most of your life. You're not smart. Not at all.

Dr. Dan, you must be one of those time warp residents. You know the ones that are stuck somewhere in the late 70's and is still lamenting the loss of Earthlings and the stoplight on 101.
Every single newspaper in the world has lost circulation. Many, most have actually shut their doors all together. To try and associate the weak cries of boycott by a few whiners who were fired for sucking as the cause of the papers demise is as silly as those LA Go home sticker you oldtimers still have on your cars.
Its actually a testament to McCaw's long term goals that the paper is still around at all. Most business owners would have shut the paper down and sold off the buildings years ago. But she keeps it afloat, obviously losing money or just breaking even in the process. I bet that in another decade you'll be talking about how lucky SB is to still have a daily newspaper.
Regardless, I am still waiting for all those NewsPress haters to start their own paper where they can unionize and pay each other 100k a year to write and publish objective, unbiased journalism. But 10 years later, it hasnt happened and yet, the Sentinel arrived on the scene as is doing really well...Started by a guy who had nothing to do with the NP. Which proves that its not the medium but the writing and the doing that drives success.
You bandwagon hippies crack me up. Driving around town in your Priuses and wearing your Patagonia while lamenting the 1% and talking about how the earth is crying while sipping on your $6 soy latte... Hippycrites is what you're called. Hippycrites.
On NLRB Accuses the News-Press (Again)
Posted on March 21 at 8:58 a.m.
Newspaper reporters need protection? Sounds like someone is living in some bizarre mid century Kafka like fantasy... That's one of the most asinine thing I've ever read.
Nothing about working in a newsroom needs the protection of a collective. Maybe if your panties get all bunched up due to someone's use of profanity or the need to hit a deadline makes you sweat... Is your typewriter too stiff? How about the coffee? Too weak? Call the union! We've got a problem! That meddling owner wants us to write a story about dogs again! Damn her! Let's print that guys address, because our union says its OK!
And you call that integrity?
You know who needs union protection? People in 3rd world countries. The laws have far since eclipsed the need for a union to protect its workers from unfair practices and poor conditions here in the USA. And to compare the plight of a few whiny overpaid professionals with college educations to those workers who died on the job or were cast aside when they were ill is an insult to the many people who suffered through deplorable working conditions and "company towns". You know the folks who build the unions in the last century. They'd laugh so hard at your attempts to make your case a plight of the workers... as if!
Unions have long since lost their value in the USA. Today, they act as muscle and mite to assure the least amount of work and the highest possible pay. Just try and deal with the Teamsters. Just try and compete as a business in the free market with union demands. Its not possible and its certainly not productive. The free market waits for no one.
Giving people the right to choose, now that's American. Forcing them to pay dues and join a superfluous org is about as Anti-American as you can get... especially when the unions do nothing but cost everyone money.
