There seems to be something ethically wrong with sending the parent home with a cooler. It's sad that people make moral judgments against the mother and before you know it we have a republicans against the democrats argument. Everyone is so damned sure they're right and ready to attack someone else.
Wow, is it true the city harassed her for reporting harassment? I'm not sure which is worse, the original harassment or the follow-on. Isn't there accountability all the way up and down? I'm afraid I can guess the answer to that question. Believe it or not, I've been sexually harassed at a job I really, really needed (like all jobs I guess), and it isn't fun. You're forced to decide between doing the right thing or putting food on the table. It's a terrible position to be in. I feel sorry for the victim in this.
Excellent humor! I especially like John_Proctor's and abcdefghi's.
If someone gives me a handwritten letter or note I don't think of it as having more value than an email or text message. I think we only need to be able to sign our name. Bear in mind, I'm not a fan of FaceBook or Twitter, so I'm not saying that technology holds all the answers. But I just don't have the time to decipher someone's cursive writing.
To Soddynooga, that's a good question. Sorry you had that happen to you :(
I tried watching this guy's television show and turned it off after 30 seconds. Perhaps he educates his audience, but I couldn't get past the "game show" atmosphere. I couldn't take him seriously as he appeared goofy to me.
I know not everyone's situation is like mine, but I have zero need for the "service" USPS offers. I do everything via other carriers and am confident I get what I pay for. The post office is a great example of government inefficiency and laziness. We need to evolve and improve.
It'll be interesting to hear what's said and not said at the 10am news conference this morning. I'd be shocked if we got any "details". I don't think we're entitled to gruesome details, but I'm curious what really happened. Personally, I don't consider this an accident, since I think getting hit by a train is very easily avoided. I think the news conference will just be a message that the investigation is wrapped up, no fault found, and let the families heal.
Man, Rolando, you rock.
