They're on the label, Jane, euphemistically or otherwise. Cheese is not. You may say, "WhatsRead More one more artery clogging byproduct of America's agricultural system when considering the whole?", but the US Dept. of Ag. begs to differ. People have a right to know whether they're consuming a cheesy wiener, nor not.

There seems to be a lot of unnecessary anger in many of the posts above. One that jumped out wasRead More that one may "deserve" to be vandalized for their license plate. No one deserves to have any type of crime perpetrated on them. It may well be the outcome because of the bigoted world we live in, but if a young woman puts tacky pink shag decor all over her car, showing the world that a young woman is driving this vehicle, she does not deserve to be attacked. It may be safer to not stand out it that way, but no one "deserves"to be punished for their taste or opinion. Bells ringing, not my favorite, but, if we want total peace and quiet, we may need to relocate to accomplish this. This may not seem fair, but it is realistic. The needs of the many... Imho, the real license plate issue is one of tolerance, or lack therof. There seems to be no profanity or targeted crime of hate going on with this license plate request. We respect and rely on our Freedom of Speech and Religious Choice rights, but we can't have it both ways. It can't be a right only when one agrees with what is being communicated. No one would think of denying a plate that read "Christian". I think people need to take a step back and remember that this is not the kind of request that will negatively impact anyone. You will either agree or disagree and that is the right we all have as Americans. You can agree or disagree with all of the amendments, the call a sports official makes or the grade your kid got on a test. You have the right to discuss your views and try to convince others of your opinion, but censorship is not the answer.

We non-believers are constantly called names, harassed, etc. We have only had to get more militant in the last few years as attacks on us have become more virulent and we see this country turning into a fundamentalist, backward nation.

So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

It is interesting how juries' decisions which greatly favor corporate defendants are not overriddenRead More by the courts and the courts do not issue Additurs. What the public does not realize that judges have the power to decimate a jury's decision and substitute their own whim or help their own buddies in the defense bar by issuing a Remittiturs, Judgments Notwithstanding the Verdict, or a new trial to drive up plaintiff's costs. Remittitur is Latin meaning the judge may reduce the award made by the jury if the judge favors the corporate defendant. Additur is Latin meaning the judge may increase the jury's award if the judge thinks the plaintiff's injuries merit more compensation. I've seen lots of Remittiturs, especially if the plaintiffs are minorities, but I have yet to see an actual Additur where the judge makes a corporation pay more. I assume there are some somewhere, but in 40 years, I've never seen one or know anyone who got an Additur. Judgment Notwithstanding the Judgment means that the judge completely overrules the jury. We saw this with Judge Connor at the downtown criminal courts when she reversed the jury verdict which convicted some of the cops in Ramparts Scandal. The scandal had resulted in the LAPD's operating under a Consent Decree with the US Justice Department for a decade. So we are to believe that the US Dept of Justice, the Christopher Commission that investigated the Ramparts Division, and the jury were all wrong, but Judge Connor, who had ties to officers involved in the Ramparts Scandals was right to issue her Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict. So, Judge Marmaro thinks that he knows better than the jury. How many Additurs has Judge Marmaro issued? To have context for Judge Marmaro' extrasensory perception of the "truth," we need to know how often he discerns the need to increase the compensation to any injured party. Maybe Marmaro is the exception who overrides his juries to increase and decrease jury awards. If so, why have juries?

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!
