Now...is the digital download a pdf or can I get a Kindle version?

Not all opinions on the law or judicial decisions constitute a "legal opinion." Legal opinion requires a certain set of attributes of the person giving an opinion for it to be legal opinion. As you pointed out, the author of the article isn't even a lawyer, so this isn't legal opinion. As a lawyer, you should know that. But then, I'm not convinced that, as a lawyer, you have put your best foot forward in understanding the implications of this decision. Already, it has resulted in...

I am so very sorry to hear this. Myles will be greatly missed by me, and I'm sure, many others. May he rest in peace.

How do you explain away the Forbes pieces?

Unfortunately, this article has little to nothing to do with what background checks could do. As far as I know, there's no database for stupid.

HOLY COW! LIFE IS SO AWFUL IF YOU HAVE TO SIT IN YOUR CAR FOR MORE THAN 30 SECONDS AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT!

Back to the Earth. First of all, I find little sympathy for the handful of people waiting at a traffic light while hundreds pass through in a more efficient mode of transportation.

Second, I frequently wait much longer than that at traffic lights along Central Avenue near/in Blaine. Why? Because 80 kajillion people are driving even further north and no one seems concerned...

You won't get any argument from me about the green line being an unfortunate compromise. It's truly a pity that it couldn't have been made more express.

However, University really could use a more high volume option. Large corridors such as University really should be train lines, while buses should remain to service neighborhoods.

Overall, I think you missed my point. And have fun on the express bus!

It sounds like this firearms instructor is a good one--and it sounds exactly like the one I had when I took my hunter safety course in middle school (yes, middle school).

One thing I actually advocate is a gun safety course for everyone. I don't believe everyone should own a gun, or even have access to a gun, but I think everyone should be told that it is a deadly weapon. You should know how to safely handle it and know your risks when confronted with an armed person. You should...

I would love to see a peaceful Afghanistan. However, they are probably no better off or worse off since our invasion. I hope that peace can come with freedom to all people--I don't think that the Taliban would have allowed that. But I don't think that the US should be the ones brokering that peace. Afghanistan has to fight for their own freedom. We can't force it on them, and we should have made that call long ago. If Afghanis don't trust the US, it's really no different than before....

Not only are the current roads questionably organized, poorly maintained, and outdated, I'm waiting to see how badly this year's potholes are going to wreck my car. Yes, I would prefer to take public transportation to/from work, but that's not an option, so add another big insult to injury.
