What's the deal with grunting in tennis? How screaming can give players an edge
Thu Sep 4, 2014
A grunter always gives me someone to root against.

Pilot in Deadly Florida Beach Crash: 'I Never Saw Them'
Tue Jul 29, 2014
I wonder how many of you people placing on this scorn and blame on the pilot text and talk on the phone while driving. Be careful of your accusations and uninformed opinions - karma can be a b*tch.
Second Beachgoer, 9, Dies After Florida Airplane Crash
Tue Jul 29, 2014
As a pilot, I know there is no way to know what the pilot in this incident saw or thought as he was on final approach. Furthermore, he might have seen a clear landing zone that changed when the victims walked into his path while he was flared for touchdown. There are too many variables to be able to …
Elton John says Jesus would support gay marriage
Mon Jun 30, 2014
I like John's music and I'm not opposed to gay marriage, but it always amuses me when anyone claims to know the thoughts of someone who lived 2000 years ago (that goes for organized religion too). The comments above are equally ridiculous. Get a grip. Gay marriage is (or should …
Grimm: 'No excuse' for threatening reporter
Wed Jan 29, 2014
I doubt he'd have been such a 'tough guy' if the size disparity had been reversed. What a punk.
Retired cop guns down man for texting at Florida movie: sheriff
Tue Jan 14, 2014

LAPD officers fired 22 shots at unarmed driver after Corvette chase, review says
Thu Dec 19, 2013
I doubt the two injured people are too upset this moron got his just desserts. And if he'd hit any of you who are castigating the cops, you'd be singing a different tune too. The only valid criticism is that LAPD needs more time on the pistol range.
Mandela's freedom fighter days not part of 'saintly' image
Sun Dec 15, 2013
I've never believed in the myths created for any politician, be it Mandela, Kennedy, or take your pick, but I can relate to Mandela more after reading this article. If I'd been a young black man in apartheid anywhere, I'd have been on his team. (I'm an old white guy from the American south.)
Violent sign language interpreter's access to Obama triggers investigation
Thu Dec 12, 2013
It's somewhat amusing that so many are surprised that these type incidents occur in Third World areas and/or countries run by dictators and thugs. If you go to these locations, be you a 'world leader' or a private citizen, you should expect to find yourself at heightened risk. If you suffer the cons …
