County accused of rights violation

I realize I shouldn't find it funny ('cos in all honesty, this guy seems like he needs some mental help) but it made me laugh so hard! I love the "menacing looks" that are given. My favorite, however, is "an appraiser scowled and stared at him" -- you can't make this stuff up!

Do you think children who are bullied should seek outside intervention or stand up for themselves?

gccs14r (Anonymous) says:I was on the receiving end. I was always the new kid and always a lot smaller than everyone else. The teachers and administrators didn't care how many times I got pounded, but if I did anything in return, I got the paddle. Some system. I'm one who considered using a gun to solve the problem permanently, but knew it wasn't worth a prison term.Bullying creates time bombs. If you're the parent of a bully, shame on you for perpetuating a culture of violence.thank you very much for posting this. while reading these responses, i just kept thinking "those kids at columbine were 'standing up for themselves' too." i'm sorry, but that's crappy advice to give to your kid. aren't you, as the parent, supposed to help protect your kid? violence begets violence.

Parade route growing to accommodate crowd

whenever i hear the name doug compton, it sends shivers down my spine. and i hear, if you say that name three times in front of a bathroom mirror, he'll come through, burn down your property, force it to be sold to him and then rent it at ridiculously over-inflated prices! but that's just an urban legend.=P
