Hatred towards Modell is understandable, but obviously actually acting on those feelings and in suchRead More a juvenile manner is completely messed up.

He used a catheter? Does that mean it's fake? Why didn't he just pee on it if that was his goal?

As a former Colts' fan I get the anger that Cleveland fans may have. But even a cursory look at theRead More difference between the Modell family and the owning family of the Colts would reveal quite a difference. Art Modell left the name and all the history in Cleveland for the current team to use - in Indy, not so much. The Modell family has embraced the Ravens market and is highly thought of here as a result - in Indy, there are still issues with the family. I hope they throw the book at this guy for such a disgusting act.

$2.37 Billion? Wasn't it $1.8 Billion last year? Up 1/2 Billion and no ground broken yet. WhatRead More will be the final cost?

The $1.8B projection was from 2007 and has been updated probably 5 times since then.

Bryan- critical thinking should not be defined as displaying an ability to perform as expected. ItRead More should be analytical and improvisational. That, however, leads to students challenging their instructors and is time consuming. It also demands instructors with hubris. Thinking is also critical in areas other than math. I cede the point that I am not currently involved in the process yet have extensive experience dealing with the product of the system. I see no current evidence that there is any ability to problem solve in the education system. There is an ability to follow procedure as taught, not critique or improvise. Our foreign educated employees have much better skills in those areas.

Mike, just think about it What PRIVATE business do we have in Maryland? Under Armour, a fineRead More company. Do they make all their clothing in the US? McCormick - they package and combine spices and flavorings, often imported, and are thinking of moving elsewhere. Johns Hopkins, which researches many things for the government. A handful of bio/chemical companies - that often are bought out by companies domiciled elsewhere when they reach a certain size. Several companies that shuffle money around. Headquarters of several large defense contractors - mostly in Montgomery County, close to the federal money teat. Other than that, what? No large companies that MAKE things. Baltimore ranks as the country's largest branch office town. The state is a nice place to live, but not very exciting - except for the chance of dying violently. I'm a native, by the way.

I guess they didn't want him tying up the bank lines so his life was not worth the wait to calm himRead More down or tase him ?

Should have tased him.....doesn't make sense why they shot and killed him!

I'm not defending these people by no means but it is so hard dealing with one autistic person andRead More for them to deal with two? In NJ once a person reaches 21 they are aged out of the "system". What happens when autistic children become adults? No programs for parent of autistic adults, no help! Nobody unless you have experienced it yourself understands............ People who are parents of autistic adults needs tons of help, they become desperate because they don't have any options.

Chrissy, do spiders cause you to become apoplectic? I imagine they woke her from her 81 degree oven.Read More What are you fretting over? The poor woman had no one to annoy with her racist rants for five hours?

I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.

If I recall correctly "organic" means they were fertilized with "natural"Read More compounds. Beside being cheaper, I think I prefer my consumables to be fertilized with nitrates, etc. that are made by artificial means. They are guaranteed to be pure without any chance of contaminants.

Governor Martin O'Malley is meeting with faith-based groups to come up with solutions for sheltering immigrant children.

So sick of politicians using anything and everything to get them noticed. We should not even beRead More talking about this and would not be if our borders were as protected as the American people are made to believe. Our country is in great need, perhaps that 1% haven't noticed but children in this country go to bed every night hungry and homeless. I am sorry that these immigrant children are suffering in their country but until we take care of our own, I fail to see the rationale in taking on someone else's problems. We are fast becoming a country full of opportunists and let's not even get into how DUMB we are. Very sad....

He can't take care of our own vets, launch a health care program and takes most of our hard earnedRead More money. Now he wants to take care of the worlds problems. As they say Martin, never pass up a good photo-op, especially on the backs of children who garnish the most press.

The Lawyers are the ones that will get 40% of that settlement. The Hospitals premiums will go up andRead More that cost will be absorbed by everyone who has insurance.. There was no harm to anyone, and I understand no ones face was seen in any of the pictures. So if you are in the middle class and see your health insurance premiums go up once again thank the trial lawyers. Funny how they can get away with it in a country where the laws are written by lawyers.... Kind of like "Hershey's" writing the dietary requirements, really doesn't make sense. .
