    So awful. I read the whole thing. A young strong kid that could have been saved easily if not for 12 hours of delay after his fall. Such an unnecessary tragedy.

    He's a commissioner, which is a psuedo judge. His decisions are really "recommendations" to the judge. In practical effect, the judge's just rubber stamp the commissioners' decisions.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    She did but no longer. The probate commissioner is rubber-stamped.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    This is making the rounds on my facebook feed today. I thought it was pretty good.

    As Iíve gotten (much) older, Iíve realized that there are a lot of things that we need more of, not less of, in Sacrament meeting, and that the idea of packing the chapel with 200 people waiting with angelic patience to get translated probably is misguided and unrealistic. Perhaps the Savior would handpick a far different crowd than we would, and I expect He wouldnít so much as blink at the things that give some of us apoplexy.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    Woot

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Take 15 minutes sometime this weekend and read this story. And be grateful you weren't born out of wedlock a couple of generations ago in Ireland:

    I hadn't heard of that movie. The description of it seems like it's in the same vein as the article. I'll have to watch it.

    Read a curious article about future of self-driving cars; they say that many people will choose living in self-driving motorhomes one day rather than buy/own overpriced property https://tranio.com/world/spotlight/s...y-market_5354/.
