<quoted text>Why do you need/want the keyboard so much? The way i see it, if you are on the couch, you really are not in a posotion to use the keyboard, and if you are sitting at a table with the keyboard set up, you might as well just sit at your actual computer.
Because I type about 110 wpm and I don't want to compromise that, depending on what I"m doing online. If my purpose is to read and post here or on other forums, I want a regular keyboard. If I'm just surfing and doing searches, the built-in digital thing is fine.

Yeah, but are you going to be able to sit comfortably on the couch with the keyboard set up?

It's not clear, but I suspect the lifeguard also got medical treatment. In one article, it stated that he had a headache.
I watched the interview with local news this morning. He thought he was supposed to go in with the kid. If he'd known he didn't HAVE to, or that he was going to be charged, he said he'd have never gotten in the ambulance.

They were statues outside the publc library of kids reading and playing. Also, I am not aware that bronze has much resale vaue. Like drug dealers, the cops should come down on teh scarp dealers
that's what some of hte outrage i heard was about... i think it was the cops who said something like "didn't the scrap yard stop to think about what they just took in".... i guess scrap is scrap if there's no sentiment to you. and the thieves are $250 ahead and out only a couple hours for it.

Re: lifeguard story: And it illustrates what a rip off ambulances are. I remember when ambulances went from free, to a $100 fee for each use, and people were outrages by that.$2600 for an ambulance ride that you didn't really even need? Now that so much of this is operated by for-profit private businesses, people get screwed more.
especially when you have zero control over which ambulance company you're going to get when you call 911.
the husband of someone i know died suddenly when they were at their cabin. one of the most asinine arguments she had was with the insurance company wanting to pay "out of network" rates for hte 911 ambulance...

like you're going to take the time, whne your husband is turning several shades of blue, what flippin' network the ambulance is in.

she won that argument with that response.

I could. Plus, she could get one of those things for the couch typing that looks like a tray but it's build for a laptop.

I don't know, I rarely sit on my couch. So far I've used it sitting at my computer desk and out on my deck with the cats (and took my first cat pictures since Bailey was dying! Four years?

I don't have a coffee table or ottoman, so I'll have to figure something out. We'll see.

Thank you.

FWIW, my first job out of college was at a company who assigned me to a project called Plan B. Kinda symmetrical

For your SIL- there is a resale /thrift store in Waukegan on Grand east of 41 on the north side of teh street just across from the Habitat for Humanity store. It usually has a good selection of housewear things, very cheap. I got the girls dishes and some pots and pans and glasses there. Sometimes very good things. There is also a Salvation Army store next to the Habitat for Humanity although I like the Sal Army place in Waukegan near its downtown better. That one seems to get the North Shore cast offs- better quality stuff. I got a loveseat and some kitchen chairs there a couple years ago

part of me disagrees with it--free speech and all. These people died representing our nation, and free speech, arguably (perhaps inarguably) is the most important Amendment.
Another part of me feels for the families of the dead, and can't even imagine the pain these bozos add to the already-grieving family.
I think this is a bad idea, at the top of a very slippery slope. These people are pigs, and I don't agree with anything they say or do, but as far as I'm concerned, the speech that most needs protecting is the speech with which I disagree. Freedom of Speech is meaningless if it only applies to that which nobody finds objectionable.

The Freedom Riders, the college students, and the general citizens who have formed barriers between the funerals and the protestors are on the right track, as far as I'm concerned. They keep these cretins away from the mourning families without stripping them of their basic constitutional rights.

Great post. Good point in your last paragraph. I wasn't even thinking that far ahead. I agree with you.

Oh man what's wrong with me?

You are absolutely right and are saying what I always say to other people in situations like this. I am not, for the record, a hypocrite. I blame sleep deprivation. <hangs head in shame>

I still think WBC are major douchebags though. I think they are manipulating and hiding behind the first amendment using freedom of speech (which is not absolute according to the SCOTUS) as a weapon, kind of like terrorists (yeah, I said it...I think they are terrorists...:/) without bombs. <shrug>

But, you are right, I am wrong and now I'm going to go sit in the corner and think about things and remind myself why emotional knee-jerk reactions are not the best way to make decisions.
