IconI am unbelievably furious!  I have a new book coming out in January, entitled "Surviving Shark Attacks on Land."  It has to do with betrayal and revenge.  18 year old Tyler Clementi didn't survive his recent shark attack on land.  He killed himself by jumping off the George Washington Bridge in New York.  He posted a goodbye on his Facebook page just eight minutes before he ended his life.

IconHere's the skinny on KFC: the world's largest chicken chain's US same-store sales fell 7% in the second quarter of 2010.  Two weeks ago, KFC revealed more than 60% of Americans ages 18-25 couldn't identify who that "old guy" (Colonel Sanders) was on the KFC logo.

IconAll I can say is HALLELUJAH! to your article advocating putting conditions under which using ones donated organs would be permitted should we die and (obviously) be unable to speak for ourselves! I am a critical care nurse... and I have cared for countless patients who have either received a donated organ in the past and now that organ is failing due to them returning to their old lifestyle of drinking, smoking, using drugs, not taking care of their diabetes etc... or patients on a waiting list for an organ because theirs are failing due to the same lifestyle issues.. and I have come to the same conclusion: I would donate but I want to be able to exclude circumstances under which under which my organs would be donated.

IconA few days ago, while driving I heard a portion of a phone call where the lady was looking for motivation to lose weight. Your answer was no motivation works. Eventually it is a matter of character. I am paraphrasing, but essentially you said an individual has to decide whether they keep faith with themselves or not. A person has to make a choice to be honorable and to close that refrigerator door. You mentioned how awful we feel when we cheat, and that we are cheating ourselves. I don't want to be the type of person who cheats! More >>

IconI have to tell you how you saved my life. I am a stay at home mother of 3 small children and by some miracle I married a very good man. I have spent the last 10 years of my life angry and self destructive. I lived my life desperately trying to fill the silence both emotionally and physically.
