      Obama says club sandwich tasted "a bit off." Sends secret service in search of Pepto Bismol. P&G stock rated "buy."

      Sadly, I doubt revenge brings much comfort or joy, However, I am glad that the murderer is going to be out of circulation. My sincere condolences to the families involved as a result of this terrible crime.

      "What is wrong with you people?" Well, if you read a lot of user postings on CNN.com, you'd know that what's wrong with most them is that they're semi-literate idiots.

    What makes people kill & stuff a body in a suitcase- showing no respect for the person they kill, just to hide what theyve done?

    • wow

      Really? If the killer had respect for a person he would not have killed them in the first place.

      "do it right" – oops! – do it correctly – correctly is an adverb modifying do. Right is an adjective and is used incorrectly in this instance. The wonderful English language ...

      The only thing horrible about NY is that it has so many people that you see the worst as well as the best almost every day. Per capita it is not bad at all. You could have a lot of fun there, but be careful in any big city.
