actually, the two cases are completely different. Stallworthe pleaded to guilty to a crime that was more severe than he actually committed- which was part of the deal he made with the prosecutor. The DA got to pin a DUI on a high profile athlete, while the athlete served the sentence for the crime he actually committed. If you read the actual police reports of Dante's situation, you will find that he was not at fault for the pedestrian, flashed his lights at the pedestrian multiple times, and the pedestrian was also in an area of the street at night where he should not have been in the first place, especially without any reflectors.
i thought the letter guidelines said "NO POEMS" ...... or at least they used too.

have these people who are complaining about the Royals been watching the team this season? They would be having a good season, except for one item that is UNCONTROLLABLE to the GM, Manager, and coaches: INJURIES. The Royals full strength line up could compete in the AL Central this year. However, when your starting 3B, SS, 2B, closer, and the catcher who catches 40% of the games are injured, the offense has taken a major "hit" in productivity, and the defense has gone down a notch. Gordon's injury is causing Teahen to play 3rd instead of right, and taking a bat out of the lineup. An outfield of Teahen, Crisp, and Dejesus is a solid outfield that gets on base. When Crisp is hurt (shoulder) the defense goes down a notch. When Guillen is in the game, the other team scores by hitting the ball at him. Gordon returning whenever he is ready will make the outfield stable again. Infield: Aviles and Callaspo being hurt (one is back now) was a major loss in the offense. TJ (tony pena jr) has no business being in an MLB lineup b/c he can't hit, but is there because of injuries. If the team can return to full strength soon, expect a drastic mid-season improvement

if you want a 'dinner and a movie' experience, go to the new AMC downtown by the Power and Light district. It is, pretty much, the nicest movie theatre in the country. Much like what was described about the Studio 30, only a lot better

"Every movie today makes its money in the first two weeks from media hype (generally by the same corporate conglomerate that owns both the production company and the media outlet) before poeple figure out the movie is a bummer." this got my entire office laughing. thanks.

there is another factor to consider for the late start: whether or not the two teams play another series at the particular stadium again in the season. (I think the original game mentioned was against Baltimore, not sure though). But if it was Baltimore, it is very likely that that was the only home series against them that the Royals have this season. This brings up a scheduling nightmare if the game had been canceled, as both teams would have to find an open date in between other series, make special travel arrangements, etc. It is basically a giant pain in the ass. Whereas, if this was against Cleveland, Chicago, Minnesota, or Detroit, all of whom we have many home series remaining, a make up game is easily schedules as a double header later in the season.

Cas- Can't say I keep up to date photos of Rush on my wall, unlike some people here, so I wouldn't have known if he lost weight or not. I wish I was going to Rothbury. Everyone I know who went last year said it was the best run festival they have ever gone too. Rothbury is 4th of July weekend however, where I will be spending my weekend in KC (gotta catch the Royals). Phish at Red Rocks is july 30, 31, aug 1, 2. Can't wait. If only Wakarusa was still in Kansas, I would go again. Moving it to Arkansas was the correct decision, as having it in a Kansas state park just gave the festival terrible word of mouth from out of towners who didn't know how to avoid being arrested (not to mention the watered down beer they sold tasted awful.... worst Fat Tire I have ever had)

anti-drug laws are nanny state laws (just from the federal government). I don't ever hear any conservatives bitch about their personal freedoms being infringed on by the gov't saying we can't use drugs, but they bitch about firearms. How about all or nothing? Either the gov't regulates everything, like seat belts, helmets, gun control, drugs, or they regulate none of it and let you do whatever you want? And how ironic is it that the ultimate "nanny state", california, lets people choose if they want to use cannabis or not by effectively making it legal
a better way for Rush to get rid of his back pain that came from injury, would be to get some liposuction/ lose some of that massive weight he carries. Instead, he, like thousands of other lazy Americans, chose to go with pain killers instead of exercise.

I don't know a single person who would say being addicted to Oxy is a good thing. It is basically medical grade heroin, and most abusers go on to form heroin addictions. Rush was one step away from the needle (of heroin). Oxy is on a different level than pot, and the levels are not even remotely close. The only reason to listen to anyone high on Oxy is for amusement purposes only (laughing at their stupidity and how dumb they act on the drug), but in reality, it is a sad path that they have chosen for their lives.

Sol you got me. and I 2nd your motion for seeing Star Trek. I'd take my dad to see it, except he saw it a few days ago. I will probably go see it late tonight after the Royals game ends (if not tonight, then maybe after I get back home from the Royals game tomorrow... or maybe I'll just go to the AMC at downtown disney after the royals game and go see it)

Kate- no, I was not banned. Will probably never be banned. I just don't think this blog is worth my time to post on 99.9% of the time. Mr. Nice Guy- to clarify- I asked my landlord when his potential buyers were coming by so I would be able to medicate when they were not around. My landlord told me in response that I could do whatever I wanted to do in front of them, he didn't care. `(in reality, the place i live in is way overpriced, and anyone that can afford it doesn't want to live there [on Venice boardwalk. if you have the $$ to own an ocean front place, you want to live where there are not tourists 18 hours a day], and most potential buyers look at the place for 2 minutes before saying 'no' basaed on the outside foot traffic) now, if you want a sense of entitlement, I give you my roommate as an example. This guy collects unemployment checks (from getting canned from being bad at a job of waiting tables) and uses the unemployment to live on the beach. If you are collecting unemployment, the first thing you should do is move to a place where your rent is far less than what he is paying. It pisses the hell out of me that he does this, and it makes me hope the gov't ends unemployment benefits, period. My tax dollars are paying for him to live on the beach. F'n bullshit. He literally feels entitled to live there because he happened to find the apartment vacant once upon a time and got the landlord to rent it to him, despite the fact that he didn't have a real job and is a wanna be actor. In Kansas, I'm considered ultraliberal democrat. In California, I'm considered a moderate republican. Who knew.

from what he says, I would get evicted from a place at his unit for using medication that I can use legally in california and illegally in Kansas. Whereas, my landlord here says I can medicate in front of prospective buyers of his property. I think I like my landlord a heck of a lot more than the landlord of any residential apartment complex
