Am I the only one who has a problem with the statement that "celebrating Easter is aRead More tradition that predates Christianity"? If Easter itself is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus, how could the celebration "predate Christianity"? For the record, there is no word in the Bible which translates as "Easter" - nor is there any record that early Christians observed such a holiday. The word is an anglicization of the ancient name of the Pagan Goddess of fertility "Ishtar" ("Astarte" in the Greek). This goddess was venerated each year by celebrations of the fertility inherent in Spring, and symbolized with fertility icons such as eggs and rabbits. Since the central tenet of Biblical Judeo-Christianity is the repudiation of Paganism and its multiple deities - the proclamation that there is only one God - it is, at the very least, antithetical to give to the remembrance of its chief character the name of one of the deities of Paganism - wouldn't you say?

They gloss over it and don't give you the pragmatic, dig the grave numbers up front. Those are, aRead More $30 billion dollar pension fund under-funding as a result of the politicians giving your money away to public sector employees who don't "give a sh*&" about you. Now it your turn to take it back and say no. Bankruptcy takes the hemming and hawing away from the politicians who have no real incentive to manage your money in the fiduciary responsibility they are supposed too. Yes, bankruptcy and we stop the bleeding and you get your city back

I own a small business in Woodridge IL. The amount of credit card fraud has here has increased tenRead More fold over last year. I have to tell you that the card owner doesn't get burned, the card issuer don't either, nor does the company you hire to process and approve the cards. It's the local merchant where the card was used. Online ordering is the worst. The big banks say you didn't swipe a card, so you're liable, even though it was approved by that same bank at the time of purchase. If this keeps up, I'll have to go backwards in time and shut down online ordering. So much for a cashless society.

I think I will go back to using checks at stores and cash at gas stations. I found a gas station inRead More Eagle Rock that gives a discount for using cash and generally buy my gas there. Not as convenient as using a debit card but I had to cancel my card after using it at Target right before Christmas. What a hassle.

I fail to see what this guy's race or politicial affiliation has to do with what he did. He looksRead More white to me (so the "third-world" comment doesn't make sense), and the "Obozocare" comment is absolutely ridiculous. You can blame the video games, but this guy had an underlying reason for what he did. You have to have a lot of patience to deal with a baby. They cry. They screw up your life if you really haven't grown up. I was appalled that he is being charged with third-degree murder, but I don't think he meant to kill his son. He just wasn't mature enough to be a father.

California unemployment up .1 pct as reported today. Let them move and if the pepper supplierRead More doesn't survive so be it. Harsh yes!! Remember that this company is now under the control of the regulators of the AMQD and guess what they are a power unto themselves. CA is bleeding business. But hey, you elect who you do, you are required to suffer the consequences. So if the workers voted for the folks now in Sacramento, then they are also part of the problem. Yep, it will hurt them a lot more than the owner moving.

@Debbie, mostly assumptions. The pepper supplier the job loss is 50 minimum wage line jobs. I'dRead More also check their legal status, then you'll know if he took jobs from legal residents I'm not being crass both sides decided to arrogantly say "mine's bigger". Now that they've exposed themselves both sides want us to feel sorry for them. Let the cards fall the way they fall and then insist that the lesson be implemented for future issues. If you really want to have empathy, why don't you evaluate the overall plans of the various City governments that pick and choose the winners by tax abatements. Then have empathy for that group that is currently not part of the chosen few.

There are implements that could be attached in the plant that would have prevented the discomfortRead More and possible injury to others. The owner did not put thos things in place in order to protect others. The City did the right thing by clamping down on his irresponsibility. In the long run it will cost the owner less to add the necessary instrumentation than to move to a different location. There is an old saying; "You have the right to swing your arms as high and as far as you want, until it hits my nose."

No where in the article does he said he knew it.

This must be why the city stopped allowing Hollywood Tour busses to go up to the sign via LakeRead More Hollywood Dr & Mulholand. Those are all independent companies. Now the city gets the $$$. Interestingly though, the city said the reason they banned the busses, which are actually just vans, was because of weight restrictions on those roads. These streets have 6000lbs limits. Signs are posted everywhere...NO VEHICLES OVER 3 TONS ! The tour busses are 15 passenger vans yet the city says they're taking 21 passengers in their bus. Fair? Of course not!
