Comment: Your policies are your business but as a 72 year old who can tell
a company of men (or women) who have no "balls" I can tell you I will
never sped a dime in your stores. In my considered opinion your policy
regarding our military SUCKS and your corporate "people" are cowards. Real
Americans will never set foot in your establishments. What a bunch of
lilly livered copouts.

I wonder if this guy is or was in prison. I saw a documentary once on cable, (Discovery or National Geo. type channel) about a SuperMax Prison. The prisoners where not supposed to be communicating with each other, so they had to sneak notes back and forth illicitly. They called the notes, "kites." They didn't explain where the term came from, but I assumed it had something to do with flipping, or sailing the folded notes to each other.

Comment: Hello,
I just read Ben Stein's last article and had many tears...Needless to say
I am very touched by his beautiful discovery in this one life we have....I
have come to the same conclusion as Ben....I am referring to the discovery
of our very own family and what we can do to help them with this long
journey.....With faith - all is possible...
For many years I have had similar thoughts on the movies and media and the
what this country views as special....It is good to hear Ben speak out and
there are so many changes that he can make for the better of our
children....He holds a special key...FAITH... Bye for now Ben and I hope
you get to read this...

Do you at Glurge have any truthful or fanciful opinions about why so
many people believe this ...er...ah...CRAP?? A story's a story, but c'mon.
Is organized religion really that powerful??..I jest, of course.Maybe I
should query the Pope or Falwell on this one, eh? -----Just making light
of the critical thinking skills in some arenas.

Oh, and I imagine someone has brought it to your attention that the TV
program "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," uses an audience poll, and a poll
of AOL users for certain questions. Guess what?? The AOL users score
remarkably LOWER in their ability to answer general knowledge questions
than the studio audience. No big revelation if you ever monitor the chat
rooms at AOL's game site: Pogo.

Isn't this, like, the third creepy promo for a child model that Snopes has got this month? Obviously this one wasn't intended for Snopes, but still.

Comment: Hi Tuppet,

I embarrassed myself innumerable times by forwarding alarming FORWARD's, so I appreciate the motivation of anyone who sends one to me. Finally I learned to check with SNOPES.COM before I forward this kind of email (I never question the juicy goodies).

When I sent this one, I noticed that SNOPES has a top 25 list.

Comment: To make you aware: I recently purchased a cinnamon roll from a
vending machine at a local hospital.This item was a Hostess product with a
Kansas city address on the package. This cinnamon roll was old, 2 days
from expiration, stale and disgusting. This is unfair to your co. as well
as to me; the customer. Please feel free to email as I would be happy to
answer any questions that you may have. To beat it all this was purchaseed
from a machine in a HOSPITAL that is emptied from at minimum twice daily.
Could perhaps these stale items be a easy way to get over on the
customer,is that not why we have a day old bakery 10 min. from our
facility. Thank you for hearing my complaint...
