    OK, what's white, black, and read all over. Easy, it is an I-Pad and people read all over it. Do I win a prize??? Oh, I jumped the gun. I will wait until March 11, then. That's 8 days without any sleep. Good night.

    Why can't we look away? Come on Craig, Sheen is way over paid and not anywhere as talented as Jerry Seinfield.

    The story about the innocent 17 yr old being rairoaded into prison. I believe he should get a huge settlement, and the court who convicted him should pay double that amount to finace a private investigation to find the guilty party(s), and if the guilty party is a public servant (judge, attorney, detective, etc.) a minimum 20 yr. sentance whould be imposed. (google 'Margie Shoendinger' for a classic example)

    Hi Cesar,and HI Philip! I agree. I would OWN that prison . It reminds me of Randall Adams. In fact, i think he spent 17yrs in prison too. With the help of faulty witnesses and corrupt prosecutors . You cant just give back lost time. he should be compensated monetarily.

  9. really?

    Hey PER, it sounds like you enjoy getting banged a lot. Perhaps karma will come back at you and we get to see you in back of a car, being stabbed?

    Hay raven! Good to see your post(s). I'd rather you did own that prison, because if you did, things would "(ahem*)" get done. When was the last time you ever heard of a corrupt leader being imprisoned for railroading an innocent person? We hear of wrongfully imprisoned people being released quite a bit, but where are those who did this to them? What? As if a corrupt leader has never committed a crime and pinned it on an innocent person. Are our leaders so far above the law so as to allow this? Our leaders put "In God We Trust" on our money to help us place our faith in it after the great depression. What are they doing to help us have faith in our judicial system after occurances such as these besides give the innocent civilian a 'sorry' note and a bucket of money? Not much as far as I can see. // * i love it when you do that.

    People of the United States of America and President Obama,
    Is anyone surprised it was a Muslim that Killed our 2 Airmen?
    When are you incompetent politicians in DC going to understand what we are dealing with out there.At this point,all Ameican military personel should be allowed to be armed at all times because they are easy targets for Terrorists.
    The line in the sand has been crossed to many times.

    They need to get off foreign soil. Anyone notice the lebanese stopped killing us when Reagan cut and run? Didn't have a disastrous affect, either.

    @Frank...your "incompetent politicians" do not understand what's going on over here let alone "over there". Besides, since when does understanding terrorists (foreign and/or domestic) translate into a reduction in crime rates? That's right, acts of terrorism are crimes that terrify people. Look at our own crime rate and the fear this inspires in the minds of millions of Americans. Are you really more afraid that a "terrorist" is going to get you than you are of an ENRON or Bernie Madoff scam wipping out you or your friends/family/neighbors life savings?
