We all care Babu, because now we know the Earth is the mother of the Universe .

I've studied science and religion (many degrees, certifications etc.) taught religion, worked inRead More observatories, as an a night assistant and as an astronomer and I would like to know just what your belief system is. I suspect you are Hindu and you believe in Kali. When Obama laid of 50,000 of us working for NASA and affiliates, he then gave full four year scholarships to 20,000 Hindu interns that took our NASA careers. I was told this from directly within the Indian Government because I moderate an international group for astronomy and aerospace technology. We here going to continue funding the ISS while handing our seat over to that government yet retain the sole cost of removing it when it is retired. Meanwhile China, Russia and India each are working on their versions of our now retired space shuttle as we opt for technology obsoleted and shelved before our first shuttle launch. Now the Hindu from that group are calling the Christian faith a superstition (yeah, in a science and technology group) that needs to be wiped from the face of the Earth and replaced with the Mother Goddess Kali, also a Goddess of Death I believe. I get the impression you are one of those....??? Comet Hale Bopp was a somewhat recent (to me) comet that you could have photographed and measured its element and proved yourself wrong. You could still go back and look at photos other such as myself actually took. The amount of force it would have taken to blow a comet away from earth with that amount of mass and that type of velocity, would have left only rubble here. So a Kali believer right???? I don't suppose you are also a Thuggee? I just haven't quite heard your version of faith and science the way you have put it so I am curious.

absolutely her rights were denied, if i have to drive behind cars with their fish stickers, and godRead More is good bumper stickers, than a woman has a right to display her choice to be an atheist
Pati beardsley April 20, 2014 at 11:46 pm
Her rights were violated. If "I" have to look at all the jesus propaganda, then I shouldRead More be able to voice my right to free speech. While I would never choose such a plate for fear that my car would get vandalized, I totally support this woman's right to request it.

If Jesus has, in fact, risen, then He's not kosher for Passover.

Absoutely!... Mahler's Resurrection Symphony (No 2): a deep. spiritual journeythat ends in trueRead More heaven... and composed by a Jew (this is my take as one, sorry)
jMichael April 20, 2014 at 10:26 am
Good one, Leslie. No one should let this day pass without resolving to know this symphony. It is myRead More understanding that "The Resurrection" compassed by Mahler is not that of Jesus of Nazareth, but rather of us... A vision of our resurrection to an afterlife. It is the affirmation of a resilient and sacred Humanity. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong about this. Regards, jMichael

I agree, Barbara. A wedding is for celebrating, and from the reaction of the newlyweds andRead More congregation, this looks like a good start to any marriage.

I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.

Psychopaths and Sociopaths abound today! This is really sick news!
Nola Loper April 20, 2014 at 08:56 pm
This is a really tragic story. It scares me. I work with several young people who put video gamesRead More ahead of their kids. They get the big earned income tax credit checks, buy game consoles, big screen tvs, games up the ying yang. Their kids get yard sale flip flops, wear torn under sized clothes. They give their kids cough syrup to put them to sleep and stay up playing games. I pray no of them would ever do this.
Silver Line still not complete. (Patch file photo.)

It is not "months" behind schedule; it is years behind schedule. When I moved out toRead More Reston in 2007, the first phase was supposed to open in 2010. Then they revised the schedule and the budget and said it was supposed to open in the fall of 2013. Since then, there have been repeated pushbacks of the opening date. Now they're saying that a "critical" communications link doesn't work and will take a year to replace, but the line can open without it. That makes no sense. Merriam-Webster defines "critical" in this context as meaning "indispensable, vital". So if this system is really critical, I would now not expect the line to open for another year at least. In fact, at this point, I would be surprised if it ever actually opens at all.

He should have been FIRED long ago. That's how you reward incredibly poor planning. This is aRead More bigger fiasco than Obamacare. That line should be OPEN now, no ifs, ands, or buts. Every day that goes by with those stations built and all the access built and the trains available is a colossal waste of time and money.
Michael Blevins April 19, 2014 at 10:29 pm
Of course, Mr. Nowakowski will be praised. Today, no one is accountable for anything, particularlyRead More for failure and poor performance. Maybe his dog ate his homework, or maybe he he had a flat tire on the way to his office. So the Silver Line is months late and millions over budget, so what? Mr. Nowakowski still drew his salary and will go on to another well-paying job. Everyone is a winner...except the citizens of Northern Virginia.

No one knows if she has PTSD from abuse brought on by boyfriend and just maybe she needs help notRead More punishment.

No William,what she needs is about 50000 volts of electricity.Fry the fat yom up nice and crispy.
David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 01:39 pm
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.
