Amanda Knox convicted of murder in Italian retrial
Thu Jan 30, 2014
Its fundamentally different than ours- but no, its not a joke. This conviction probably would have stood to begin with if she was from another country and it didn't get taken over by publicity and promises of lifetime movies...
California Little Leaguer sued by own coach for 'carelessly' celebrating
Wed Jan 15, 2014
penguinpug- I agree! I played softball for years and saw some pretty bad injuries...mostly when kids lost control of bats after swinging...I've seen coaches get hit with bats- I almost lost my front teeth after the laces on my glove split (it was realllllly old and I shouldn't have been playing wi …
Above water: Flood insurance increases may be delayed
Tue Jan 14, 2014
Ummmm- thats not how the NFIP works...right now insureds are getting up to 250k in coverage for about 412 bucks. Thats not actuarially sound (hence the program is in the red historically...).
Federal judge allows same-sex marriage in Utah to continue
Mon Dec 23, 2013
I think its a surprise that it happened in Utah ahead of other states...given Utah's ties to the LDS church and the strong effect that has on local politics... All the states should just vote on this already because it really shouldn't be an issue as long as everyone is paying taxes and abiding laws …
Obama shakes hands with Cuba's Castro at Mandela service
Tue Dec 10, 2013
I think you all need a month in a little white rubber room....geez.
Obama: Income gap threatens our 'way of life'
Wed Dec 4, 2013
If you say so...regarding your comment that "if we own a device that allows us to post we clearly don't know what poor means"- it depends how you define poor. And how many people abuse the system. I'll give you a real life example...a girl from high school friended me on facebook a few years back.
Cyclone Cleopatra sweeps Italy's Sardinia, killing at least 17
Tue Nov 19, 2013
The problem in Italy is compounded though- its not unusual to see heavy heavy rains causing landslides (although cyclones are new to me and I lived there for close to 10 years).
American, 21, dies in fall from Rome wall
Tue Jun 11, 2013
I'm an expat (live down the block from the river in Rome...) and this kid had to be drunk and messing around by the wall- there are no railings but the wall is pretty thick so you just don't trip on the sidewalk and plummet...
Rep. McCarthy diagnosed with lung cancer
Mon Jun 3, 2013
I'm from her district (and frankly- not a political fan)- BUT no one should have to go through the horror that is any sort of cancer.
Germans claim to be the world's best tippers
Fri May 31, 2013
I guess it depends what you consider a tip- Germans might "round up bills" (leave 20 bucks on an 18 dollar bill lets say...) whereas Americans tend to leave percentages (15-20%) as tips. I've been in Italy now for a few years (7...) and generally you don't tip here- at all- but thats partially …
