In California, when I was in K-12, the only expense I had was for the mandatory phys ed uniform. I feel that the expanse being mandatory on the student was wrong. The California law says that kids must take phys ed, so, the state should pay for it. How does that compare with Arizona law? Yes, I vote for plan D.

I agree with the judge in so far as that kind of display is to be left on the sports field. As judge I would have showed my disgust by increasing the community service allotment. Increasing the sentence to jail time was a bit harsh.

This sounds to me like some wise-ass university graduate is submitting a bulletin, to be published in one of the important medical journals. Medical students do this stuff for credit toward graduation and degree certificates. Researchers get to do this stuff for a living!

I agree with Alexander Hamilton's position. I feel that laws should be aimed at supporting morality and correctness. The idea of making law to NOT do something, is somewhat vague, and invites controversy. The idea of "shall not establishment" is an example of the point. The law should read "the laws of the state shall be free of all religious opinion, however, there will be free practice of religion which will be exempt from any law for or against it. Or, would you word it differently?

Sheesh, I'm missing out on the show because I don't receive tv here in Grants Pass...! I don't have equipment for streaming video. I get my news via web sites.... CNN, PBS, NPR, CSM (Christian Science Monitor). And, I love to read the Roundup and the forums...!

Here in Grants Pass, Oregon, we have zero county and city sales tax. We have a state income tax which is distributed to local governments. It seems to be working here. Although, the county government is dissatisfied at the what they consider a draconian tax scheme. I'll bet that some Paysonites would approve of that plan for reducing government spending.

"A letter like Ted Paulk’s is a rant containing primary derogatory attacks and is not worthy of publishing."

Editor: We still have freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. Let's all keep it going!

I wonder why some people, like Mikey, are willing to spend big money on gun restrictions?? What does it buy them? Are they afraid someone will shoot them? Are they megalomaniacs who want to enforce their opinion on everyone? I'm not interested in owning a gun. While in the Army I had to carry one everywhere with me. I'm happy that I need not do that anymore. Let everyone decide for himself.

I apologize, Ron, My reference to one million Islams was quite mistaken, I was just momentarily very dull in mind at that statement.

frederick franz 1 year, 6 months ago on 263 Can you explain this? I can't.

The driver could have let the toddler out of the vehicle to let him relive himself? That still wouldn't explain why he would drive off and abandon the kid ?
