@E.J.: If you go to any art display you will see works on display that have prices on them that make you think "no way is it worth that". Just because some one says a piece of art is worth "X" doesn't mean anything until someone is willing to pay "X" for it. Sometimes it even helps the value if the artist dies.posted @ Friday, December 20, 2013 - 19:08
@E.J.: I don't believe Petzone paid $4,000 for the bulldog. I think it was donated and valued at $4,000 as an art piece. They are or were scattered around the area after having been "decorated" by various artist.posted @ Thursday, December 19, 2013 - 16:45

" He resigned the position amid the investigation that concluded with his arrest, officials said."
What kind of dummy, knowing he was under such an investigation, would keep incriminating evidence around? Whether guilty or not, phones and hard drives would be destroyed, burned, and ditched never to be seen again.
What kind of a rocket scientist does it take to understand that the low enrollment numbers are probably the result of a non-functional website, Healthcare.gov ? If a private company paid someone the millions of dollars the government did to set up such a site that didn't work, someone would be getting fired.posted @ Sunday, November 17, 2013 - 07:00
If I had a child that would pay $300 for a pair of sunglasses and then carelessly leave them on a train, they would just have to do without the overpriced sunglasses and the $300. Sure the credit card company covered it but this is an expense that is figured into the rates they charge all customers.posted @ Monday, November 11, 2013 - 07:43
@opinionated: Not saying the police should ignore any particular law, just saying that they should have priorities. You probably wouldn't be impressed if you were being assaulted and the police drove by saying "sorry, can't help you, we've got reports of a hooker down the street". So which crime would you want ignored?posted @ Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 21:40
I'm sure the residents of Savannah sleep better a night knowing the police have run out of murders, rapist, thieves, etc. and can now concentrate on these folks.posted @ Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 07:09
TheOtherSide "It would have been better if he had called 911 with a license plate # and description of the vehicle so an officer could be dispatched and observed the truck driver's actions firsthand"
You must have missed the part where : “He flattened it and then took off down the road,” said Webb, who explained he was already on the telephone with law enforcement when the truck started leaving"posted @ Friday, October 25, 2013 - 09:06
So just exactly how did they close Mount Rushmore , hang a blue tarp over it? And did they fill the Grand Canyon with dirt? Where did they hide the Statue of Liberty? It sounds like they are probably spending more money "closing" some of these parks than it takes for them to operate them.posted @ Sunday, October 13, 2013 - 07:30

That reminds me of the time I won a new Cadillac. All I had to do was buy a box of ballpoint pens. I told them to throw the box of pens in the back seat and I would have cash on hand to pay on delivery. That must have been 20 years ago and I'm still waiting for my Caddy.posted @ Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 09:23

It is very reassuring to know that ACCP has no crimes to investigate so they can devote resources to non-crimes.posted @ Thursday, August 22, 2013 - 18:09

@E.J.: PFDs are like seatbelts, there are some cases where you might be better off without them than with. But in most cases they are the best option. More people drown without PFDs than do with them and there is no way of knowing the number of people that are saved by them.
I'm glad you survived your canoe trip.
When I checked on Ga. Dept of Corrections website I couldn't find her. Then I saw why, it said: "First Offender Records are Unavailable
As required by Georgia law, records covered under Georgia's First Offender Act are not available on the Georgia Department of Corrections website."
So that is probably how she slipped by the background check..

It would be interesting to see a comparison in cost for two employees (salary, insurance, etc.) riding in a car (gas, tires, cost of vehicle, etc.) versus one emplyee working in an office (office rent, utilities, office furniture, etc.). Maybe it woud be a savings, but I don't know. It could be figured on a per case basis, (cost divided by the number of cases handled).posted @ Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 12:25
@shawn706: If yu were right then companys such as Ford would not be using venders if they could produce the items more effeciently themselves. They have engineers and accountants that do nothing but seek ways to save every cent possible. Here are just a few of the venders Ford uses because it is more efficient: :Autoliv: La Pobla De Vallbona, Spain – Airbags
Key Safety Systems: Knoxville, Tenn., U.S. – Driver Air Bags
Robert Bosch: St. Joseph, Mich., U.S. – Brake Actuation
Summit Polymers: Nanjing, China – Instrument Panel Components
Takata Automotive Electronics: Shanghai, China – Restraints Electronics
Webasto: Schierling, Germany – Sliding Roofs
ZF Getriebe: Saarbrücken, Germany – Automatic Transmissions
Brose: Santa Margardia, Els Monjos, Spain – Window Regulators
Cooper Standard: Mitchell, Ontario, Canada – Mounts
Diehl Metall: São Paulo, Brazil – Synchronizer Rings
Dura Automotive Systems: Lawrenceburg, Tenn.,, U.S. – Window Assemblies
Faurecia: VFlex-N-Gate – Ventura: Grand Rapids, Mich., - Metal Bumpers
Flex-N-Gate – Ventura: Grand Rapids, Mich., - Metal Bumpers
Gil Mar Manufacturing – PGI Far East Precision Products: Shanghai, China – Iron Engine Castings
Hankook Tire: Daedok-Gu, Daejeon, Korea – Tires
Honeywell Garrett: Atessa Chieti, Italy – Turbochargers
etc, etc, etc,
@shawn706: Iti s a common practice for companys such as Cat', GM, Ford, Chrysler, etc to contract with outside venders to supply parts that they use. The vender fabricates the product to the sepecs the customer provides. Sort of like Wallmart would not find it profitable to manufacture the merchandise they sell when they can have someone else do it cheaper to their specs.posted @ Friday, May 3, 2013 - 08:24
