What the hell is a "magazine clip"? Semi-automatic pistols use a magazine. Technically,Read More it's called a box magazine. Clips are completely DIFFERENT!! http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_RYwUPr35rLw/SMSzcYalaPI/AAAAAAAAAM4/pgTUU7jUlFo/s1600-h/Magazine+-+vs+-+Clip.jpg

Amazing how Irish Americans like Truth are the first to speak in generalities about blacks andRead More Hispanics, but if someone dare applies those standards to the Irish, they become the most hypersensitive people of all. O'Brien, couldn't help but notice you confirmed everything I said in your response; not surprising given your background. I said to ban Irish immigration, as they come over poor and uneducated. By your own accord about your family, they didn't receive any education until they came to America. By your own accord, many Irish go into law enforcement, a job that is blue collar and for those who aren't educated...no surprise the Irish flock to such jobs. And, when it comes to explaining why your descendants were poor savages in Ireland, you blame the British. Amazing how the very Irish people who tell black folk to stop whining about the effects of slavery and segregation shriek about British oppression of the Irish whenever the savage backwardness of the emerald isle is brought up! Surely you'd agree by the same accord that Africa and the Middle East are a mess because of British oppression and imperialism!
Why July 22, 2014 at 08:07 pm
Josh, not all Irish were poor savages, put upon by the British. Some of the "savages"Read More actually fought back and killed the British. Never refer to an Irish person as "poor" until you look in the mirror! I have followed your posts. You specialize in whining, inflammatory posts. Where does our hatred and desire for instilling anger in others come from? Is it because you are loathed?
Josh Goldstein July 23, 2014 at 04:43 pm
The way to not be a poor savage is to get money and education. Irish American's can finally getRead More money and education because they're no longer in Ireland, as our pal O'Brien pointed out. Killing someone doesn't magically turn you into a rich civilized person. Although, I'm not surprised that a feeble Irish mind would equate violence with behavior that is not 'poor savagery.' What am I whining about? The only whining I see is you and O'Brien turning into the McSharpton because I had the audacity to speak empirical facts about the educational and financial status of Irish immigrants.
Man Landers July 16, 2014 at 05:00 pm
What an idiot. With hundreds of pizza shops in Philly, why'd he have to come all the way out toRead More Newtown? A a crime like this around here gets as much police priority as the Simpson murders.

I hope he gets some help and can get his life back together. I'm very worried about the directionRead More that our youth is going in. Sometimes it takes something like this to occur to set someone straight. If not his future is going to be very uncertain.
Heidi July 9, 2014 at 07:00 am
Can you try to not kill this one & take it back upstate this time please

Unfortunately, some people don't learn. How about enforcing the work zone speed restrictions?

Was there any police watching the site? Their presence would help people, hopefully, to slow down.

Once again (and almost within 24 hours) the news brings us another horrific tragedy regarding theRead More senseless death of two more PA children. This has been a hard summer for the little ones. I pray we do not hear about any more of these tragedies. My prayers go out to the parents of these two little angels. So very sorry for your loss and for all the other children who have lost their lives due to freak accidents and/or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Obama needs to put a ban on dressers now!!! Just like guns they're killing people
Margalit Tetlow July 15, 2014 at 07:47 am
Deepest condolences to the family. What a senseless loss of young life. But I wonder where were theRead More parents when the children started playing on something so patently dangerous?
Mailmam July 6, 2014 at 12:39 pm
So very very sorry for all of the losses A terribly sad day in the City of Brotherly love

sad for the families
KPez July 7, 2014 at 10:09 pm
This truly tragic. My heart and prayers go out to these families, especially those who lost theRead More little ones.

@F-TR - well, at least it's six of one and a half of dozen of the other even though the AmericanRead More Water Christie-style pit bull bellowing water tower will offend us 24/365 – personally, if I had to pay American Water for their service, I would enclose one canned sardine in every payment envelope [tried to use your reply button to no avail - that's a 50/50 option also]
Juliana Brady July 4, 2014 at 01:22 pm
Weekender's don't pay attention to such important things like how to get out of a rip current. EvenRead More I a strong swimmer with certifications had trouble getting out of a couple of them. I also fully knew how to handle myself and it's still a killer for those who come down here to party and then think they are jumping into a pool in the backyard. Never turn your back to the Ocean, give it the respect it deserves, and don't go in just to cool off thinking it's just a "rip current" no biggie! The Ocean will take you down in a flash.

The last time I ate food out of a truck there was a similar explosion...
Nick Matregrano July 4, 2014 at 12:23 pm
Propane is a very flammable and explosive heavy gas. A lot heavier than air, if there is a leak itRead More will hang low until it finds an ignition source. You have to make sure the regulator and hose is tight on the bottle and replace hoses if they become cracked or dry rotted. They require daily maintenance.

They have to announce these checkpoints because checkpoints in and of themselves areRead More unconstitutional. The SCOTUS said that in order for checkpoints to be considered "legal" notice must be given and drivers must have a way to legally avoid the checkpoint. Get educated people. Its not about being above the law, its about asserting YOUR RIGHTS.
Dave Urner July 3, 2014 at 04:30 pm
First, I stand corrected regarding SCOTUS and consider myself educated as to the "legal"Read More aspects regarding announced check points. I take it that it's okay for a person to throw down a few brews and then hit the highways. I guess it is okay for a drunk driver to infringe on "THE RIGHTS" of another driver... to drive without getting T-boned by a drunk driver. I happened to have a couple of close friends who have been impared....FOR LIFE that were involved in DUI accidents. What happened to the two DUI drivers ??? They were made to wear those bright orange colored monkey jump suits for a few Sundays and tidy up the 422 by-pass and told what they did is a no no, don't do it again.
Peter Maravitch July 4, 2014 at 02:25 am
Need to take that photo down of the four lanes each way. It just upsets Lehigh Valley drivers evenRead More more considering Penn Dot built 78 at a great deal of expense and forgot to make it 3 lanes its whole length. So when this needs to be done because it will, especially going up that long hill heading East before the Rt 33 exit (how dumb was that move), we will again have to sit in long lines, a ton of extra cost not needed if they did it right the first time and just get more upset.

Any new words on the bear? I am freaked and need to know where it is.
Alex R. July 1, 2014 at 08:55 pm
Black bears aren't that bad they tend to be more shy and scared of you and run away. Unless youRead More interfere between mom and cubs. I still don't understand why the Patch or anywhere else has yet posted any DO's and DON'Ts around black bears. It's really not that complicated. Just don't leave trash all out for them to get lured in by and they will leave you alone also keep an eye on your pets. And don't worry it will most likely end up with a "broken leg" like all the others mysteriously had since people (law enforcement) don't know how to handle them around here.
lorraine ference July 2, 2014 at 04:41 pm
Anyone hear anything else on the bear? I don't want to see it get harmed in any way I just need toRead More know it wherabouts. Such a shame if it can't just get back to a safe place. Law inforcement should know how to handle ANY situation. They are trained right?
Heidi July 6, 2014 at 08:01 am
I want to know why they would not let him wear water shoes on the ride most rides require them? ForRead More protection. I personally have been there 2 times & live in the area both times passed out on same ride just from waiting in line!

She could have Wilson's disease. They need to check for copper level in her blood. This is a rareRead More and very serious disease. It's a genetic mutation that is being linked to Agent Orange exposure. It makes it so you can't process copper. You end up with copper toxicity. This damages the liver, heart, brain, teeth, ect... It's unthinkable that her parents wouldn't take her to the dentist but for her teeth to be that bad in the first place, she must have a gum disease. http://omicsonline.org/unusual-enamel-hypoplasia-associated-with-teeth-mobility-in-a-13-year-old-girl-with-wilson-disease-2157-7412.1000118.pdf

In the case you are referring to "She was diagnosed as WD under the basis that she has aRead More neurological affection including movement disorders represented by poor coordination, loss of fine- motor control, cramped handwriting. Rigid dystonia represented by rigidity and gait disturbance. Pseudobulbar symptoms represented by dysarthria, drooling, and difficulty in swallowing. Psychiatric affection showed depression, aggressive/anti-social behavior and emotional liability. Kaysere-Fleischer rings are apparent by direct visual examination." The child in the case of the parents being charged was 6 years old and did not have the other symptoms of WD. The other was 13 and had most of her permanent dentition which were able to be restored or replaced with bridgework. The 6 year old needed removable appliances to replace her extracted teeth. big difference wearing these, versus permanent non-removable restorations. Reading the facts and research before posting unrelated information is much more helpful to the people reading this. Just saying.
Heidi July 6, 2014 at 08:08 am
I feel so bad for this little girl, they did in an article take her to a dentist I will give creditRead More for that but did not follow up for months later leading to this problem. Which then makes it their fault! There is free dental care for children not adults period so they can't use that as an excuse! There is also free transportation still no excuse. And someone posted before about them looking like drug addicts well looks can be deceiving as I am a very tiny girl born that way and people accuse me of not eating & I can out eat many men I know! We are all different but in this case sorry they do look like drug addicts & the father looks scary as all he!! It is just sad anymore if I could turn back the clock to when things were so different I would!
