9/11 fund handler decides compensation to Aurora shooting victims

Victims of the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting rampage will receive assistance from a $5 million charitable fund.

The attorney who decided who will receive what payments handled similar payouts to victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks, the BP oil spill, the Sandusky sex abuse scandal and the Virginia Tech massacre.

He received no payment for his work on Aurora – not even for his expenses.

    I feel ya little mister! I often have no $$, so this means I have to "steal" toilet paper from public restrooms! I don't feel like this is stealing, it's public & I'm simply taking what I might be using on a regular visit to this place! Women Need TP!! Times are ruff for all of us & I can only hope the people we vote into office understand how hard up we are! This is my 1st experience w/poverty in this nation & that's true for a lot of people! We're broke, but our reps in Washington keep playing political games at our expense! We are the people, the true government & as such we need to say Enuff! Work together & get us all back to normal or get the heck lost, cus you're holding up progress! No matter what, we will survive & succede & our nation will be great again! We just have to put the pressure on!!
