    @JIF – Michael Jackson had many problems, being able to buy a doctor should not have been a option for him if the doctor is on the up and up. I am not interested in the trial either. With that said I think he will be convicted just on using the prop. in a non- hospital facility. It is a shame a doctor would choose money over a life. Mr. Murray should have made it known Mr. Jackson was on the prowl for drugs in the medical community and stood his ground to not treat Michael Jackson.

    Hi, Mama.
    I couldn't be happier!
    Go Cards!
    Agree with you on both of your posts, btw.
    You said it beautifully.

    Banasy The game was a good game and St. Louis is one big smile. My family were commenting on how creative pitching helped in the first game. Also we were chuckling about Rhodes being a cardinal, released from Texas Rangers, being paid $100,000 from the cards, and $1 million from the rangers. I guess he has a vendetta to settle? Now I am interested in LaRussas next creative pitching lineup with Motte. Freese being a hometown boy is fun too. GO Cards!
    The First lady Michell Obama and Dr. Jill Biden were also at the game. They had come into town to also see the vet hosp. and take some of the troops to the game with them.
