[quote][b]monkey_of_shame[/b] - "Witherspoon, who has since apologized and pronounced herself “deeply embarrassed,”" - Pitts
Reading is fundamental.[/quote]
You're right, he mentioned it. Then glossed it over and ignored it.
Since my point has has eluded you, I'll explain in more detail.
Pitts, as you point out, covered his self with the above phrase. Then he continued to criticize and berate Witherspoon as if he were unaware of her apology.
One would think Pitts would pick on a celebrity who shows up as a selfish jerk, instead of one who spouted off after a drink or two, then showed genuine remorse.
But, hey, he needed a column. So he wrote a column about a bad person who is not a bad person. In other words, he wrote something about nothing.
Wasn't the first time, won't be the last.

[quote][b]melquiades[/b] - @Ross: so what do YOU think we should do about Syria?
I think the situation in Syria is largely due to Obama's invertebrate status in his handling of Iraq. Sure will be nice to have a president taken seriously by our enemies. Is has been 5 years now.posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 13:11

Could it be that you don't know why the DJIA is up?
The bond market is many times larger than the stock market. Bonds are a poor investment these days, because Bernanke is using extremely low interest rates like defibrillator paddles, trying to get Obama's moribund economy going. Investors are fleeing from bonds.
So the wealthy are doing okay, as everyone else suffers.
Thanks, Barry.posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 13:02

It was obvious that Witherspoon was mortified by her behavior, far beyond the puny punitive powers of Pitts' prose.
Yet, no mention at all of her very public contrition.
Perhaps Pitts is more judicious with his imbibing. I hope so. Anyway, no one cares who he am.

[quote][b]Ben Had[/b] - Well, I had a similar experience when I told the Judge I couldn't decide a persons fate with a group of people that prayed to an imaginary man in the sky for guidance before every proceeding.
He didn't like it, but allowed me to have about 10 minutes to clarify my position.

You are correct. Once on disability you are no longer counted as unemployed because you are not able to work and therefore not employable--you are disabled.
Why would these folks be counted?

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - S&P 500 just broke 1600 for the first time.
You understand why, right?
Bernanke, trying to put lipstick on a pig of an economy, has interest rates near zero. This drives investors out of the bond market, which is many times larger than the stock market. So, the DJIA and the NASDAQ look great, in spite of a rotten economy in which only the wealthy are doing well.
But you fell for it.posted @ Friday, May 3, 2013 - 18:16

[quote][b]avenger[/b] - I wondered what halal meant so I looked it up.
To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the slaughter to Allah. Because the animals must be slaughtered alive, stun guns are often not an option as they can kill an animal before the heart pumps out all the blood. [/quote]
Sounds like Muslims are about to tangle with PETA. Face Mecca when you flash 'em, ladies.posted @ Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 12:26
