On City College Student Sexually Assaulted
Posted on September 22 at 10:32 a.m.
Rape is never justified. But in an age of dynamic feminine awareness, the following is puzzling: "..that she was offered a ride by an unknown man ..." Obviously, this wasn't her best choice, was it?

For relatives, at least, whether she had met them or not, all's well that ends well.

Are the matters of advanced age and living in isolation, except for legal staff and a few others, totally irrelevant from a legal point of view in this matter? After all, how does one at that age go about the business of such in-depth distribution of such immense wealth that was not covered at a much earlier age?

Should Dedman's exhaustive work ever be brought to the big screen, or even HBO, I should think Helena Bonham Carter would be a perfect fit as Huguette. And remember, I get a finder's fee! lol!!

Thank you, offramp, for the semantic assist. It's just that there's a little too much "creativity" going on in American English that's rather annoying at times, as in what I referred to previously, "female actor" when gender is established in one word, "actress." And the most outstanding annoyance was the use of "the disappeared" in translation from Spanish to English in reports on political tragedies taking place in Argentina sometime ago. It was just too awkward, clumsy, if you will, for me. The translation that worked for me was "the missing," since I don't know of any real world experience in which one "disappears." Apparently, I was a majority of one since the habit continues into the present.

"Impaired driving." Such awkward language. I once thought that we employed such an adjective when talking about inanimate things, such as watches, radios, automobiles, and the likes. I find this usage as awkward as I did when reading about a "female actor" when "actress" established gender in one word. It looks as if we're inventing an entirely new language.

By chance, does The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Foundation maintain "diplomatic" relations with similar Foundations so engaged, say, the Coquille peoples of Oregon? The Coquille people are an certainly leaving similar large footsteps in social projects that advance and improve upon the human condition.

Wow!!! Talk about options!!! "Despite scholarship offers from Princeton, Stanford, and Yale, he chose UCSB because he said he believed it was the best place to pursue his professional career. Plus, he’s been part of the S.B. community for years." He must also have quite a good head on his shoulders, too. After all, how many residents have been part of the "Santa Barbara community for years" who never have had those fantastic options. Oh, well, carpe diem, young man!
