Just throwing in my two cents here--I've had dry skin on my hands since 6th grade and it gets worse as I get older. And it can be real bad too. I always seem to have cracks and bleeding.. May have to try super glue . But I've found that what works best for me (and I've tried a lot of different things including expensive stuff) but none of it worked very well. But now I have found that vaseline advanced therapy works the best and it's a whole lot cheaper than a lot of things out there.

Sarah,

Since it's the end of the year and since I read your stories but have only commented once I just wanted to say thanks for these articles. They do a good job of showing how things were then and how people pulled together to support the troops as well as what things were like for the troops in France. Looking forward to the rest as the war came to an end.

Thank you.

Some good news here. Still have more work but at least we can see some progress for what's been done so far. At the very least it seems to me everyone, no matter what side of the issue they fall can at least be happy about this.

Why not stop the bickering and start looking at the environmental issues as a chance all of us, individually, can conduct a scientific experiment to see what happens to the environment. The details of the experiment can be worked out later. And since we're not in congress maybe gridlock can be avoided. It seems to me that those who deny climate change should want to do that so that when, in their thinking, the environment is still messed up they can shout victory from all of the wilted tree tops.

I like this idea. For the last 20 some years I've been unhappy with every candidate and as a result every office holder. If anyone wants to sign the petition the link that says Party of the Center will take you there.

Jan, talk to a lawyer to see if you have any options in small claims court since you have an oral contract.

It seems everywhere you turn now days students whine enough and curriculums are either questioned or changed. I would've loved going to school in this environment cuz I would've been right there on the front lines trying to get the curriculum dumbed down.

Teach the book as it's always been taught. Then have the kids dry their eyes and sniffles from all of the bawling they've so cruelly been put through and have them write papers about the book, their opinion of it and back it up using critical thinking skills. Although I suppose the concept of critical thinking would have to be taught first since a frightening amount of people have now been indoctrinated by PC.

Keeping with the civil war theme, what if Lincoln had the same attitude that educators and politicians have now days? Southern secession would've happened because Lincoln and others in the north wouldn't have wanted to hurt their feelings.

Brock,

I agree with what you say about jail time. But they gotta be caught first. We all think we can get away with things. Cameras and 24/7 monitoring won't be a deterent for some but it will give police extra help.

bryanbowen (Bryan Bowen) says...

From what I've read I don't know if people intend for cameras to be used after the fact or during the commission of a crime. I don't think cameras will deter violent crime like what happened recently because they were going to do it no matter what. Emotions and adreniline were running too high for a person to stop and think about cameras. Yes, showing them on video would be good to ID them but people would still die. But if cameras are used as a deterence and monitored 24/7 the police could've been notified and at the scene faster.

If officers are on the streets to hopefully provide another deterence what will they have to do when they see large groups of drunk people leave bars and go toward their cars? If they have to do drunk tests then they will likely be unavailable if a violent crime happens. That's why I think cameras with 24/7 monitoring would be good. They should also be put on the next streets over on each side of mass.

Sadly I think violent crimes will become more prevalent in Lawrence and I think monitored cameras can be a lot of help in keeping it under control.

This whole thing sounds like it was concocted by the Brady Kids so everyone could have a sunshiny day. It's a time bomb that will shred everyone in its path with shrapnel made of spoiled kids who become angry and depressed when their jobs tell them they have to do things other than what their interests are. This proposal will do nothing to teach character development, citizenship and work ethic--and it may end up doing the opposite. Plus the teaching of those traits should be done at home. When the fall out from this happens everyone will look to place blame and a lot of them will place it on the wrong people. The blame will belong with the woodstock generation ("there's bad acid going around! Don't eat the blue acid, it's bad!") And yes, that was actually said by someone at woodstock it's in the movie. The ideas, attitudes and philosophies they held have spawned this dionysian culture that we've all had to contend with for 50 years now. It needs to stop, and although history should be taught from further back, some Reagan/Bush ideals might be a good thing.

I may be wrong about this because I'm no math whiz but I don't think .05 of 1000. is .50. I think it's 50.00. Per 100. it would be 5.00. As I said I could be wrong so if someone else is better at math wants to check it out that would be good.

Thank you
