I was in the car with a friend, once; he was driving. Upon seeing a large SUV with its driverRead More holding a phone to their ear, my friend pointed at the driver and started telling me about how dangerous "distracted drivers" are. Well, while pointing and ranting, my friend had swerved over the line and dangerously close to hitting the large SUV, which was on a steady course in the middle of its lane. The moral of this story is that "distracted drivers" are not always who you'd expect.

Sure Ed, makes sense to ban someone who cares about the world we I've in.
Scott Ritchie April 23, 2014 at 03:29 pm
The only positive effect I have seen is that a review of the phone of a driver who was involved in aRead More fatal accident showed that he was texting at the time and it added to the "he was stupid and careless" evidence. Personally, I would love to see a law against "driving like an idiot" which would cover texting, phone, putting on makeup, reading a book held on your steering wheel, changing clothes, etc... all of which I have seen on 422

I think it would have been MORE APPROPRIATE if they named a wing of the Hospital The Gregg Wing thanRead More a small part of a Highway no one will refer to as Gregg Highway.
Dori McCrane April 23, 2014 at 09:38 am
I think it was great they did this, but wondering why no first name? Officer Brian Gregg Hwy?
jerry schenkman April 23, 2014 at 10:30 am
Renaming a section of Washington Avenue or State Street would have been a more fitting honor forRead More Officer Gregg. Even better, naming in honor of all fallen first responders past, present and future, with a plaque with their names would have been more comprehensive.

Please no more prisons/jails. Use lashing for punishment. Five lashes brings pain as bad as cancer.Read More Remember the boys /men Clinton had to interview on behalf of in Indonesia , they were to receive three and it was called cruel punishment.

@ Melissa: No, he does not need "help and support". He had 23 years of opportunity thatRead More became horrid behaviors and anegocentric mindset. Help and support were already given and it obviously didn't make any difference, now it's time to lock him up for the safety of everyone else. He isn't going to learn a thing from this other than daddy will throw more money at the problem, as has allegedly been the case with criminal issues within the family. Since this is not a court of law, we are able to judge as we see fit, we just can't do anything past that. But, as for your take on the NAC employees I completely agree with you. This has nothing to do with any of them. I was a member of the NAC before I moved and I have nothing but good thoughts for the people there. They're just doing their jobs and making an honest buck, which is probably more than we can say for the alleged criminal in question.

Bob D, "racial profiling"? Should we have only black cops pulling over black people, andRead More white cops pulling over white people? That sounds like it'd be "separate but equal"...

Truth. Nothing gets by you, does it. Yeah sure, that's exactly what I meant? Asian-American copsRead More can only stop Asian-Americans, Irish-American cops can only stop Irish-Americans, Arab-American cops can only stop Arab-Americans, Native-American cops can only stop Native Americans, and so on, and so on.

Good job! And, BTW, he looks better than most Amish women, unfortunately (for Amish men).

It's an employee, not the business owner. if the business owner knew, that would be a differentRead More story. Or if this guy had a criminal history that wasn't reviewed or taken seriously. Employees are people and people often suck.
MikeS-FCG April 16, 2014 at 10:48 am
With a last name that is the same as the business name (Walters), it's entirely likely that he's aRead More family member and/or part owner. Nevertheless, business owners are people also.

Never said anything about SHOOTING!! But you may be surprised how quickly the kid would've DROPPEDRead More his weapon had he had one pointing at him!!!
MPorchik April 10, 2014 at 11:44 am
You are making an assumption that a kid whose mental state was sufficiently messed up that heRead More brought two knives to school to stab his schoolmates would drop his weapons due to another weapon. So what's the outcome if he doesn't drop the knives? Does the teacher then shoot into the crowd? If not, the gun isn't really much of a deterrent.
Gary April 10, 2014 at 12:37 pm
@amisstree Your on the right track with the media. But it goes deeper than that I think. TheRead More gargbage that I see on television nightly is revolting! Whatever happened to our standards. If these kids aren't watching someone being tortured or killed there, they're doing it themselves in video games. Seems anything goes now-a-day. In fact, KDKA had someone bring this up yesterday and mention a recent television program that featured an attack with knives. And I just thought I'd mention that a lot of others are right about how much worse this could have been if this kid would have got his hands on some guns.

John, you're whack to compare adults having affairs to an elderly man raping kids. You need seriousRead More help. And GoAway, I don't give a crap about what happens between 2 consenting adults -- and I certainly don't care about someone else's marriage and what they're willing to accept or not accept about their spouse.

Is it possible for "adults" to have a dialogue even with different opinions withoutRead More calling names...??? How old are you name callers? Sandusky was a very ill and evil man. Corbett helped him to the boys.. Vote him out of office.. Keep Sandusky in prison..
