"As a matter of policy, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) is a disaster for this country on numerous levels."

As opposed to the disaster that already exists (on numerous levels)?

I'm not so sure "killing two birds with one stone" is quite the right phrase to use when writing about how to be environmentally sensitve toward our "majestic environment."

On Thinking Green When You're in the Red

"he grew up with dogfighting as a boy and he never questioned it as he grew into manhood. He didn’t know any better because he was never taught that it was wrong."

there's something deeper going on than pitting two animals against each other.

there's an enjoyment in seeing living things endure pain and suffering and even dying.

is that taught? or are people who find this to be entertaining, sociopaths, lesser humans, for whom redemption is nearly impossible?

This is a "news" article?
Based on the dearth of actual details, i would say this article is non-news.

You're once blessed to receive such wise counsel from a friend, and twice blessed to have the wisdom and will to
put it into practice.
Thanks for the excellent story!

AZ2SB, you would be more productive if you worked with an organization that dealt with victims of sexual abuse. You obviously are passionate about the subject, but your judgmental, spouting off in virtual forums doesn't further knowledge, compassion or justice.
I don't condone sexual abuse of any kind, against man woman or child. A person's body is exclusively their domain and it must be respected; however I'm curious about the legal strategy that we're witnessing.
We don't know anything, recognize that first Az2Sb
The case will not go forward, we'll never know the facts. The prosecutor agreed to this sentence which leads me to think that while some abuse occurred, it was not as prolonged and pervasive as the press stated it.
Again, I'm not justifying Jeff's actions. They can't be condoned, but the law saw fit to sentence him as they did.
Jeff is a friend, and I will never know what actually happened, but he has my compassion as a human being with flaws (who of us doesn't have any?).
I value the fact that he has admitted his wrongdoing and spared all involved the pain and agony of trial. He will serve his sentence, hopefully receive counseling and must live the rest of his life with the public stigma of his actions.
It is my hope that the girls will receive the love and attention they need to flower into healthy young women.

please consider the CARBON FOOTPRINT of the foods you buy.

they may be organically grown, but if they arrive via supertanker or airplane, how biologically friendly are they?

do we really need south american asparagas in winter, or himalayan salt? is good, but organic and local is better.

bon apetit & respect mother earth
