Human waste still pouring into NY Harbor after Sandy
Fri Nov 16, 2012
"A 12-foot surge of water swamped the Newark plant that serves some 3 million people when Sandy struck on Oct. 29 and repairs are not incomplete." What? If repairs are not incomplete, they are complete. So there should be no problem and therefore no story. Will you people PLEASE hire some editors? …
'OctoNovemCember'? Retailers speed holiday calendar
Fri Oct 12, 2012
Did the person who wrote this article even pay attention to what they were writing? "This year, several holiday sales forecasts are calling for retail sales to rise between 3 percent and 4 percent." "That means retailers are fighting over fewer consumer dollars." Um, when sales rise, that means ther …
Facebook predator targeted my 6-year-old girl, says dad
Thu Aug 2, 2012
Facebook should shut down his daughter's account and his as well for violating their terms. This guy's got no brain. There are plenty of other ways for his daughter to talk to Grandma online, free, without using Facebook and setting up a bogus account. And plenty of other places for kids to play gam …
Rubio offers bill to waive taxes on Olympic medals, winnings
Thu Aug 2, 2012
It never ceases to amaze me how many unimportant things politicians can find to fill up their time instead of fixing the government.
Obese 9-year-old boy sheds 50 lbs, returns home
Fri May 11, 2012
Lawson said, "You've got to be in a regiment to keep your weight down." Huh? You have to be in the military? Or is that the Salvation Army? That statement doesn't make any sense. I believe he might have meant "on a regimen", but I'm not sure. Apparently the lawyer needs English classes...
The 1 percent of the 1 percent: How Huguette Clark's millions were spent
Sat Nov 19, 2011
Who cares? Other than her relatives who want to inherit some of the money, this is of no value to anyone. This is not news! If you want to be a tabloid site and print lots of human interest and puff pieces, be my guest. But don't call yourselves MSNBC News, because the majority of what's on here lat …
Smokers, obese workers penalized with higher health insurance premiums
Thu Nov 17, 2011
Where does it end? People who get cancer cost a lot for health care, so they should pay more. Lots of people get cancer who've never smoked. People who eat a lot of junk food, even if they're not obese, will most likely have heart problems and cholesterol issues later. Let's not forget the diabetics …
He's no Santa: Burglary suspect stuck 10 hours in chimney
Wed Nov 16, 2011
I'd like to know what kind of safe it was. If a 17-year old this unintelligent can get into it, it can't be very safe. Unless the homeowner forgot to lock it...
Pizza is a vegetable? Congress says yes
Tue Nov 15, 2011
"The government shouldn't tell kids what to eat". What? The government is providing the food! How is that not telling them what to eat? There are some ridiculously clueless people in Washington - either that or they know they're lying. I do have what might be a rather unpopular opinion, though. Why …
Secret Swiss accounts may not stay so secret anymore
Tue Nov 8, 2011
Most of the smart rich people don't use Swiss banks anymore, anyway. The small Caribbean nations such as the Cayman Islands have been de rigeur for private financial transactions for a long time. And they just tell the U.S. where to go if asked for information.
