its because of comcast's poor installation that they are having this problem. They ran the cablesRead More only a couple inches down instead of at least 18inches like they are supposed to. Same thing in the Laurel Lakes community in Laurel. they laid the cable on the ground before the developers laid the sod down so the cable was only as deep as the sod... When erosion started happening, they had all this exposed cable that people were hitting with their lawn mowers.

Corporate profits are at record highs - no one is forcing them to do anything, but to obey the law!

Ah, the level of ignorance never ceases to amaze me. Many of you would sing a different song if youRead More knew that Social Security and work health plans were earned benefits, part of a law or good faith package, incentive package- take you pick.... All you crybabies are so worried now that someone will come into your home at night to take away all that you 'may" have earned . Most of you are doing well and toot the GOP horn. Those that are struggling- well they are like cattle, don't matter, and just corral them and toss them a bail of hay while waiting for jobs to return to the U.S. BTW- Most of this Obamacare is a modified Romneycare that you all conveniently forget to note ! Now go back to sleep. Ignorance is bliss !

I don't care whose grave he did this too, to film it and post it, he's dumber than a box of rocks minus the box. Does anyone think they claim not guilty when they themselves have produce the evidence to convict them? I mean really?

Bryan- critical thinking should not be defined as displaying an ability to perform as expected. ItRead More should be analytical and improvisational. That, however, leads to students challenging their instructors and is time consuming. It also demands instructors with hubris. Thinking is also critical in areas other than math. I cede the point that I am not currently involved in the process yet have extensive experience dealing with the product of the system. I see no current evidence that there is any ability to problem solve in the education system. There is an ability to follow procedure as taught, not critique or improvise. Our foreign educated employees have much better skills in those areas.

Mike, just think about it What PRIVATE business do we have in Maryland? Under Armour, a fineRead More company. Do they make all their clothing in the US? McCormick - they package and combine spices and flavorings, often imported, and are thinking of moving elsewhere. Johns Hopkins, which researches many things for the government. A handful of bio/chemical companies - that often are bought out by companies domiciled elsewhere when they reach a certain size. Several companies that shuffle money around. Headquarters of several large defense contractors - mostly in Montgomery County, close to the federal money teat. Other than that, what? No large companies that MAKE things. Baltimore ranks as the country's largest branch office town. The state is a nice place to live, but not very exciting - except for the chance of dying violently. I'm a native, by the way.

I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.

If I recall correctly "organic" means they were fertilized with "natural"Read More compounds. Beside being cheaper, I think I prefer my consumables to be fertilized with nitrates, etc. that are made by artificial means. They are guaranteed to be pure without any chance of contaminants.
