In the 21st Century, this is a topic for debate? Really?? Not only is this woman protected by theRead More First Amendment, she's also protected by logic and common sense.

Seems like a load of BS to me, let her have her plate. Some of these DMV folk get a little carriedRead More away with their power of VETO! LOL We had a plate once denied and all it was was a Spanish word that some nit wit thought was a part of a female genitalia! LMAO Called the office of the Gov and it was taken care of within a few days....NO ONE wants to piss off the hispanic vote in California John J. Nazarian, P.I. desperateexes.com

No M Smith, she would not have an issue if you wanted to put a cross in your yard. That's theRead More point. It is you that wants to have that right while denying anyone else to have the same freedom.

The Season of Easter is the high point of the Christian Church year. It is a time of praise, asRead More Christians glorify the risen Christ. The scripture readings proclaim the power of the resurrection that gives strength in suffering, unity in diversity, consolation in sorrow, perseverance in adversity and faith in times of doubt. Through his death, burial and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus gifting for all who believe in Him eternal life in Christ Jesus. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him” (John 3:16-17).

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.

If he was serious, it should have been the 20th floor.

He most likely could have bungie jumped with his own unit.

Perhaps it was a failed circumcision/ bungee jump?

Pam J, you need a check up from the neck up. My goodness. An Obamazombie,no doubt.
Igor April 19, 2014 at 07:18 pm
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.
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.

I understand that with success comes notoriety. So while I am a not surprised by the level ofRead More interest you all have in that family, I am surprised that it is not just left at that. I am surprised that people from this area would resort to posting elementary school comments. I thought we were a little more refined than that. So many comments about the father, his family or employees and not one comment about if the kid is ok? If the father specifically did something to you and you want to come out and share your experience of why you think he’s this or that, then go ahead. But to sit here and ambiguously post comments about things you heard, that have no real impact on you, makes you look childish or jealous
Kristi April 19, 2014 at 10:53 pm
Why the hell is this kid smirking in his photo??? Is this the picture from ear biting arrest orRead More assault of his girlfrend? Quite a concerning picture.
Chris L April 19, 2014 at 11:03 pm
I'm leaning towards steroid and drug use for this kid. Shit maybe even bath salts. Doesn't that makeRead More you eat people? At the end of the day this is not a surprising story. Apple never falls far.

NO -----SHE DESERVES WHAT SHE GOT..- She STABBED STABBED STABBED..she should have gotten the deathRead More penalty.....but michigan has only life in prison. Don't have sympathy for her just because she's a woman. She's a cold blooded killer and deserves what she got.
RON Ostrodamus April 19, 2014 at 03:11 am
The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?
DDB April 19, 2014 at 07:29 am
Don, the comments were made at sentencing, not at trialso it hss no bearing on her conviction.

Thank the goodness somebody is steppin up and is buying guns for these deranged peoples. Them folksRead More wid mental problems gotta be able to defense thereselfs from them govmnt agents who always be tryin to take there guns away so they can be tooked off to the consentrashun camps. The reel criminals in this case be the govmnt. Everbody knowed it two.
David April 19, 2014 at 12:19 am
Kill Crazy, This guy was a freak, if he wanted to kill he would find a way no matter what tool heRead More used. I see from several posts you do have an anti-gun agenda, too bad its not a criminal anti-gun agenda. From the looks of your grammar and spelling I think community college would be your best weapon in this forum. As far as guns go, Virginia could always adopt the DC laws, let’s just use their crime stats as an example. Myself I have a concealed carry permit and when I am in public I am carrying, this is good for me but here is a big problem for people like you. Let’s say I see you being assaulted in a park, I have two choices: 1) Intervene with my weapon to stop the harm being directed at you, but run the risk of you saying you would rather be beat-up, robbed, raped, or killed than to see this guy use a weapon to protect an innocent person 2) I take the ten minutes to get home and call the police to report what I just saw (by then you are left to your demise) Trust me, because I know people like you exist, I will ALWAYS chose option #2, my weapon is to protect myself and my family. You and people like you that live in the land of lollipops and unicorns will just have to yell the “bad words” at the criminals to make them stop, cause I will just keep walking.
Kill Crazy April 19, 2014 at 06:14 pm
Dave you be da mans!!! You be sooooo brave it done made my hart beet faster. You done soun likes aRead More nature born killer. How many nochos you got on the Gluck? Is you got 6?

Well, that's just about right, the average of the top 10 CEO salaries in VA is 390x that of theRead More average worker salary of $45,000. US Avg is 475x. Don't know why the average worker is complaining about wage stagnation and lack of jobs. Poor CEOs must work so hard to keep all that money out of the tax man's hands and the grubby hands of the worker! How can they possibly survive otherwise?
WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.
Igor April 19, 2014 at 09:39 am
HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

Rae Anne Resident April 19, 2014 at 04:31 pm
It sure helps that I'm a little old lady because I just bring my cup from home from the last time IRead More was at a store. The last time I paid for a drink at costco was probably before the terrorists attacked us on 9-11. What's the big deal here, it's only soda? If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available. What's next, you expect me not to use my dead sister's handicap placard too?
