Sorry -- having computer problems. Will re-post if it can be figured out. I really do hate Apple sometimes.

But you're right, you probably know what's best for them. I can't believe this defense of Craig by asserting it was homophobia. He was attempting to have sex in an airport bathroom stall. I highly doubt his arrest by the MSP airport police was homophobically-motivated, just...
Your photos gave my pc a virus.

It looks increasingly likely I am moving to St. Louis from the NYC area. I'm not from the area, but have visited a couple times to interview for a new job and to look around.

I passed through the place while helping move a friend from Chicago to Greenville, SC and liked what I saw. Kind of struck me as a sort of strange cross between a bohemian artsy town and a retirement community though, which is a weird combo. My sister loves...

Kind of like how people forget that the "99ers" are not third generation welfare recipients but people who have worked all their lives and put into the system only to be called welfare whores and losers when they got laid off and needed help. Social Security isn't something you "pay into" like a pension. ...
