pmmart, you're an idiot. Can you read? He changed lanes to AVOID hitting the person who FAILED TO YIELD. Learn to read, stop calling a deceased person names, maybe just stop typing altogether.
My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Mr. Payne.

Yes, NVFisherman, you're right. We had a fabulous economy a few years ago and it had nothing to do with education. Bringing more diversity to our economy is a complex issue, but if the tax climate and workforce are favorable, the businesses will come. This is certainly not my area of expertise, but Zappos would be a good example of the type of business that will diversify our economy, I believe. I have a Master's degree, but I never would have moved here 15 years ago if my husband didn't work in gaming.

Oh, no. I love watching this show and she bought the ugly dress that all the girls on the show always want to try on. It looks like the lingerie I wore UNDER my wedding dress. Is it just me, or does a sheer bodice on your wedding dress look skanky? I'm no prude and I spent $6,000 on my dress, but this dress looks cheap and hideous at any price. And it's really EXPENSIVE. Yuck. You're 59 years old, sweetie. You are trying way too hard.

I take strong exception to Christina Schofield, R.N.'s OPINION that "nurses were dutiful in washing hands -- but 'physical therapists, case managers, physicians, ancillary staff' were not."

Hospital nurses are no better at handwashing than most others, demonstrated in study after study nationwide. (Nurses are slightly better than physicians, but some ancillary staff do better than nursing, and physicians are more likely than anyone to wash up AFTER patient contact.) Nurses are very busy, so I am sympathetic.

However, EVERYONE must be vigilant to stop these terrible infections. Nurses are absolutely guilty in some cases, and no R.N. should be excusing them from responsibility in this story.

We all need to work much, much harder to protect the public, no matter how busy we are.
