    Looks good to me. Can't hurt as long as they don't do anything stupid.

    Uh.....and where is the money going to come from to hire these additional academic counselors? Oh, I know, the taxpayers, of course.

    Worked cars in inclement weather. Which was most of the winter, but those few sunny and dry (if cold) days saw the bikes on the road again.

    Court time was given back at time and a half in time...

    It happens. And I'm guilty of taking a free drink from a bar owner during a routine inspection and shooting the shit. But some of the liquor laws back then (and into today, even) are pure bullshit....

    Nah, no apology needed. Sometimes my wrong side gets up and is pissed off at the whole world. Such was the day I posted that. :)

    Police and prosecutors have been known to be lazy.

    Well, if you say so. I only know I busted my ass for 29 years in the DPD and what I have to show for it now is a 20k pension with no medical...

    Just returned from DTW back home to LAS. Detroit Metro was fine, although I have a nif-naw with Frontier Air Lines and their check in desk. Not Metro's fault, of course. Terminal 3 back at LAS was...

    Gotta be some major management changes, IMHO. Ideally, even an ownership change, but that's 99% unlikely. By the way, the Las Vegas sports books have the Red Wings at 500-1 to win the Stanley...

    Oh, it's fine. Just that I'm more into symphonic stuff. Always have been. Musical background starting about 1946, and, alas, Motown wasn't around then.................
