Hopefully the purchase price was cheap enough that they can finally develope the property. I'm so tired of looking at that every day!

I agree that the signs are an eyesore but I also agree that we are lucky to have the right to put the signs up. My opinion is that if your vote can be changed by yard signs or bumper stickers, you should not be able to vote at all. I don't put up yard signs because they are ugly and because I'm not arrogant enough to think that my opinion is going to have an effect on how anyone else votes.

To those of you who keep saying "Cesar got a life sentence for stealing belt buckles": First of all, he was not killed because he stole (as silenthill12 pointed out), he was killed because he committed a home-invasion robbery. Second, his death was not the punishment for his crime. His death was an unfortunate result of his own actions. Both men could have made choices that would have avoided Cesar's death, but Cesar had the first oportunity to make a better choice and if he had made a better choice, John would not have been put in this position.

The bible does not prove the existence of a god any more than comic books prove the existence of superman. The bible only counts as proof to someone who already believes. There are so many possible gods in which to believe, how can one possibly know which is correct? Isn't it a wonderful coincidence that the correct god in your mind just happens to be the most commonly followed in the geographic region in which you were born? There are millions of Muslims, Hindus, etc, etc, who are as certain as you that they know the true god. It is not possible that you are all correct. The more likely option is that you are all wrong. Religion does bring peace to many but when you have representatives from the church preaching the evils of condoms in countries where aids is killing millions, religion becomes criminally negligent.

This makes him look guilty. If I were him , I would tell my accusers to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt or stop talking about it, end of story. If they had no evidence would he have dropped it like this? Hmmmm...

Some people must think that you just stare at the GPS and do what it says without looking at the road ahead. This guy should no tbe allowed to drive.

I always hate to see when someone puts a ton of effort and money into something and then it fails. I enjoyed the food but I also felt like the location was not ideal and the space was too big. It's great to have plenty of space for everyone but in a tough economy you have trouble filling enough chairs to make money. Try a much smaller space, and consistently good food and then the word will get out that you need to make reservations ahead of time and you will always have a full house. If you look around, the smaller restaurants are always full and the large ones struggle. At least that how it seems to me.

Janine, if aspects of your religion are sacred and not discussed casually, would you please remind the boys who are knocking on doors in the neighborhood that they should not be discussing your sacred beliefs so casually? I'm really tired of telling them to go away. You are obviously allowed to believe what you want but I happen to think Joseph Smith was a con man and a liar and I don't care to hear his story on my front porch.
