Have you ever been involved in a vehicle collision with a deer?

On 56 highway, west of 59 a few miles back in the early 90's. I would have stated that the deer won at the time, but the truth is, both the deer and the truck were totalled.
Those deep ditches are hazardous in more ways than one. I never saw her until she had ljumped out of the ditch and was directly in front of my shar little red truck. I didn't even have time to remove my foot from the accelerator. I never would have dreamed a plastic fan would cut a metal radiator into 3 pieces.

Founder of Señor Stan's dies of liver cancer

Oh no! RIP my old friend, Stan helped me out considerably when I was younger. Will never forget what he did for me. My deepest condolences to his wife (who I never met) and his brothers, as well as his mother.

How far back can you trace your family tree?

I'm a direct descendant of a signatory of the Declaration of Independance on one side of the family (George Ross, Betsy's first cousin) following back to the 14th century in Scotland to The Earl of Ross in the Castle of Balnagown, as well as a Captain in George Washington's Continental Army, . On that same side, there is a vein of American Native blood that gets lost quickly. All I know is that it's one of the tribes of the Iroquois Nation. Records are scarce in that branch, sadly.

On the other side, my great grandfather played in the Sherwood Forest as a child before moving from Nottingham to the US as a teen. That branch is connected to Col. Paul Tibbetts (later Brigadier General Tibbets) who piloted The Enola Gay over Hiroshima. A lot of American History in my family.

Number of diabetic Americans could triple

I know several type 2 diabetics, and not one of them are overweight. Adding to that, I don't know where he got that people are giving it to themselves. It notes in the article above that a diffferent method of calculating the number of diabetics being used largely accounts for this new number. One of my best friends lived for years with the notion that eating too many sweets when he was an over the road trucker gave it to him until his doctor dissuaded him from that thought.

Dreaded corn sugar! Wheat, rye, and barley glutons are my villain. I'm starting a celiac's crusade! Corn and rice are all they let me eat without moderating, which really bites on Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Federal jury finds co-owner of Yellow House guilty of 16 charges in stolen-property case

You've never heard of the defense filing a continuance? They do this sometimes to draw the case out for the purpose of letting the public's anger subside. Not to mention to take advantage of their obviously short collective attention span.

Alex, there are people on this board actively trying to divert some of the anger being directed at you out of compassion. You are making it difficult to defend that position.

Appeals may work when taken through the proper process. Appealing on an internet comment section with one cherrypicked case does nothing to help you. Especially with the over the top rhetoric with which you choose to make your point.

Federal jury finds co-owner of Yellow House guilty of 16 charges in stolen-property case

While that may be considered a plan, a conspiracy is defined as

•a secret agreement between two or more people to perform an unlawful act
•a plot to carry out some harmful or illegal act (especially a political plot)
•a group of conspirators banded together to achieve some harmful or illegal purpose

Unless you're implying that the Feds, local, and state authorities were in collusion to unlwafully convict the Neighbors. But I do get your point.

I said Nash? Caffiene deficiency. Neighbor's is the proper name. Sheesh.

Federal jury finds co-owner of Yellow House guilty of 16 charges in stolen-property case

I think using the internet to sell the items, and then the US Mail to deliver the items opened up a couple of cans of worms that escalated their predicament considering it brought in the feds.

Had they kept it local, or at the very least not used federal services, they would be looking at less time, and would have battled a different breed of attorney.

Also, I'm pretty sure this case was dragged out for so long because continuances were filed by the defense (standard practice from what I've seen), and can hardly be held against prosecution. Had they been denied a continuance, they would have screamed bloody murder about that.

As an aside, I know their child made a spectacle of himself at times on this board. But rejoicing in his pain seems a little mean spirited. I'm not defending the Nash's, just pointing out that he's suffering enough without having his nose rubbed in it. This is his mother, and I'm sure he loves her very much. That being said, it makes her no less guilty.
