Small time dealer trying to supplement her income or pay for her own habit. Easily replaced in the distribution network. The THREE "within 1500 feet of a school" charges are ridiculous, bogus, and discriminatory. Some lawmaker created it to "protect our precious and vulnerable school children from drugs" - like this lady was standing in front of a school trying to lure children. Ridiculous. All non-violent crimes for which incarceration will accomplish nothing. These people need jobs, services,education and a stable and functioning community. Can't Norwalk do better? View Comment
Trolley? What is this supposed to be? Light rail? Horse drawn? How is this anything other than a bus route? It's just going to be buses, right? What makes it a trolley? Maybe a quaint bell? This is friggin' buses, right? View Comment
Translation: Andrew Lack had his lawyers review Williams's contract. Apparently it is substantially more expensive to fire Brian Williams (> $30 million) than it is to let his contract expire. My guess is that Williams becomes "NBC special correspondent", never to be seen on broadcast TV again, until his contract expiration.
Can I get a "White Privilege!"?
frezZ, you are 100% correct. However, I will acknowledge that it is a struggle for people like myself who have known an individual (nearly) my entire life as "he" to change over at the flip of a switch, or on short notice. It's like my family members and college friends always will be "Judy" and "boo boo" even though they now wish to be recognized as Dr. Donath and Dr. Levin. But you are right. View Comment
I have great respect for Gail Lavielle, but this is a mistake. In reality, the "War On Drugs" has been a horrible waste of money and lives. It has led to the mass incarceration of principally poor black and brown people for generally non-violent crimes, including simple possession of marijuana. Gail, please visit the web site of The Drug Policy Alliance - www.drugpolicy.org. This is a national advocacy leader of drug law reform that is grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights. "Protecting our children from drugs" is a fine soundbite, but our nation's, and state's drug laws need to be considered rationally for their actual effect on all people and society. View Comment
