    Sadly, LWP, that is all to true. But we are at least trying to go purple this year. Hard fight but we are trying. Meanwhile, another four years in the red wilderness.

    An interesting observation. And just what is the source of your rating beyond your own obvious hatred of the President? The scholars who study presidents and their administrations would not attempt to rate President Obama while he is still in office. Mr George W. Bush, however, has fallen somewhere in the bottome 25% of all presidents as to the quaility of his time in office. Unfortuantely, I do not recall where President Carter or President Reagan have fallen. Probably somewhere in the middle.

    No offense taken. It is just that us old folks get a bit annoyed when youngsters cop an attitude indicating no understanding of or appreciation for “the good old days” which were not always so great.

    Excuse me but based on everything I have read about the situation in Ferguson, this attitude would be entirely appropriate for ANY black man walking into town, even the United States AG.

    That is what’s wrong in Missouri right now. The police decided to use it when they did not need it.

    I think it is okay in this case. He did say, “Like an idiot” and that pretty much sums up the source of that line.

    The title is offensive?? The TITLE is offensive? The whole game concept sounds pretty doggone offensive to me.

    I thought they lived up denial.

    I read the unabridged Les Miserables about ten years ago. Took me about a year to get through the 800-900 pages. It was quite interesting but Hugo did like to wander off on digressions that did nothing to advance the story. Remember one chapter that discussed at length the life of the order of nuns that took in Fantine. Interesting stuff but had nothing to do with the actual story. Same thing about some of the descriptions of the battlefields after a battle. The only thing I got from that was that the man who later became the pub Landlord was a real jerk. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it immensely and it is great literature unlike some much of what is coming out today.

    There is no national standard. Driving is regulated at the state level. As far as I know, most states have no mandatory age limit on driving. As others mentioned, a few states do require you to retake the actual driving test to renew your license beyond some age, probably starting around 70. Don’t know if any states have some sort of automatic exclusion for certain medical conditions but they might. Here in Texas, it is every man, woman, and child for themselves.
