Sorry...Debbie Reynolds.

I would guess that no one is posting because...seriously, what can be said about what is going on these days in the news....it's like very bad fiction but it's REAL.

Best line of the entire year thus far: "Make America Sick Again".

I'd say that started on election day. And for the country...it is a self-inflicted wound.

Fatal or not remains to be seen.

Self Inflicted - sadly, that about sums it up.

Not a good sign:

Guns & Ammo found in violin case and buckets in Washington DC park

Not a good sign for sure...this link would not work for me....

If it's misposted again, try googling violin + gun + Washington DC + buckets + ammunition

These links worked fine...thanks!

Smart lady to alert the police! See something/say something is a great plan. We should all be more alert.

I got a kick out of one the featured stories in one of the links...the one about Trump's "Celeb Crew"...if you need a good chuckle, it's a "must read"!

April finally gave birth, so the Twitterverse can go back to trying to have a life.

Oregon Man Dies Peacefully After Good Deed

An Oregon man died "peacefully" after a friend falsely told him that President Trump had been impeached.

Michael Garland Elliott died on April 6, according to his obituary in The Oregonian, and the final words he heard were that the president had been impeached.

Elliott’s “ex-wife and best friend,” Teresa Elliott, shared the false news to bring him comfort in his final moments, according to the obituary.

One of the greatest rock voices of all time has gone silent.

Chris Cornell 1964 - 2017

Saw Soundgarden at Lollapalooza one year, great voice. So many from that era have died now.

Just saw a report on "Lunch Shaming"...I thought at first it would be kids making fun of what other kids brought from home and/or what kids ate: like vegetarians, etc.

But...no. It is school personnel "branding" kids who are behind on their "lunch payments"....they have to pay for a full week ahead and sometimes the families fall behind.

So what do these Lunch Nazis do?

They stamp the "laggards" arms with a rubber stamp that says "Lunch Debtor" or other humiliating "yellow star"-like phrases/brands.

This is America????

11772. Ms. No - 5/30/2017 7:26:10 PM

Yeah, because that's useful.

My entire school is free & reduced lunch. No kid here ever goes hungry for lack of ability to pay.

I know exactly where the shame in that article belongs.

11773. Ms. No - 6/14/2017 4:28:36 PM

No one dead, fortunately. Even the shooter is alive.

Is it wrong of me to hope that he's a disgruntled conservative with an arsenal he bought through gun-shows?

11774. Ms. No - 6/14/2017 4:29:07 PM

Crap. I gotta go fix that.

11775. Ms. No - 6/14/2017 4:30:48 PM

Oh, maybe not.

Sorry, I screwed up the coding and that link takes you to the story from this page rather than opening a new tab in your browser. It doesn't look like I've corrupted the whole page, though.

Turns out he's a Bernie Bro, the second most violent candidate in the race. (I mean for inciting/not quelling violence, not committing it.)

Expendable workers for TVA. Disgustingly ignorant leadership at so many levels

Coal ash spill workers

“They called it the Kingston crud,” said Jeffrey Dwight Brewer, a 42-year-old worker and married father of three from New Market, Tenn. “When new men would come in on the job, they would be healthy like you. After a couple of weeks on the job, it sucked the life out of them. They would start the cough.”

John Cox, a Halls native and once a star trumpet player at the University of Tennessee, had strong lungs when he started working at the site. Before long, he couldn’t stop coughing. Antibiotics didn’t help. His doctor in Oak Ridge told him it was the fly ash that was making him sick.

“I said, ‘They told us the stuff won’t hurt us,’” Cox told his doctor. “He said, ‘Why, that stuff will kill you.’”
