Oct 30th 2008 9:24PM Manny a Yankee??? Geez, doesn't that mean that he will have to cut his hair, shave, and wear a uniform that fits??? On top of all that, he'll also have to genuflect whenever there's a Steinbrenner in the room. Just doesn't sound like Manny, but then again all of that "stiff upper lip" stuff isn't getting the Yanks anywhere, so maybe they'll let Manny be Manny . . . and then the rest of the league can watch out.
Feb 2nd 2008 3:50PM Don't understand why people talk about Hillary and then drag in Bill. Once Bill is in, all that is dragged up is the negative, most of which was never proven. The POSITIVE is that during the 8 years of the BILL Clinton administration the middle class (which really no longer exists thanks to GW and"Dead-Eye" Dick) was much better off than during the previous 12 years of the Reagan-Bush debacle. For one thing, the budget was balanced. That first refund many people credit Bush with was made possible by Bill Clinton's fiscal responsibility. Yeah, he was a whore-hound, but so what. At least he didn't send our troops into harms way for what were really "personal reasons". Don't remember when he said it, but: "Well, he tried to kill my Daddy . . .".
One last thing about Bill: Polls at the time clearly showed that if he could have run for a 3rd term he would have beaten anyone the GOP could have put up.
As to Hillary and the war, at least she has the courage to say that she made a mistake. For ANY politician to admit to a mistake is like a breath of fresh air - it is so damn rare.
You can color it any way you like but just like the Patriots were the BEST team in the NFL in 2007, Hillary is the BEST candidate for President in 2008 but even that is no guarantee she will win. Always remember that you should never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
Nov 29th 2007 3:34PM I don't want to minimize what Rudy did after 9-11 but geez folks, he was the damn Mayor. ANYONE would have done the same thing as it was their job. The actions he took do not make him a great man. We should stop focusing on 9-11 and look at all of the other stuff in his closet - same as we do with all other candidates.
Nov 27th 2007 12:57PM Can't really say I'll miss the show. Great recipes over the years (better in his books) and have aten at all of his restaurants in New Orleans - food is to die for. Good Luck to a Master Chef and a Master Showman who truly likes to have fun in the kitchen
Nov 21st 2007 8:40PM Although I have been reading the AOL news stories for quite some time I have only recently gotten to read the comments made by others and even more recently have made comments of my own.
I am simply amazed with all that is going on in this country and this world how stupid and petty (my opinion folks) many of the writers are.
I could care less if there was a Bible in my room or not. If I found it necessary to read the good book I would have my own and would not rely on a hotel or motel to provide one. To take the position that before a room is booked the hotel would be questioned about it's policy with this regard and if the answer is no, go elsewhere, is just incredibly asinine.
I'm sorry people, but some of you have too much time on your hands . . .
Nov 20th 2007 10:06AM This is not practical for use but would make a great gift for a retiring mechanic, or "mechanic of the month" or something like that. For a retiree, would sure be more appropriate than the ever present watch (NOTE: We retirees don't need to know what time it is on a regular basis).
Oct 14th 2007 5:14AM I've traveled, mainly due to military, and have experienced the same variations most readers have. Since I drink only Coca Cola and ask for it by name there have been no surprises except when ordering the preverbial "Rum and Coke". I have learned that I must first find out if I am in a "Coke" or a "Pepsi" establishment because they will most always give you a "Rum and Pepsi" or worse, a "Rum and RC Cola" and not tell you. Quite frankly, both variations are horrible - too sweet.
Oct 10th 2007 3:35AM Remember when the Red Sox suffered the dreadful ghost of the Babe? Looks like the Yankees are now suffering the ghost of the "George". I think his comments about Torre hurt the team's chances of winning in game #4. ANOTHER STUPID REMARK BY A STUPID OLD MAN. As for Torre, when the batter can't hit the ball or when the pitcher can't find the strike zone, or when a seasoned infielder making "big bucks" has to ask a coach where he should stand under a certain condition for the best chance for a double play and still cover a runner on base, then I can't fault the manager.
Want a winning team? Maybe players should be paid for what they produce in each game, not just for who they are.
Oct 10th 2007 1:53AM I don't see anything wrong with what she said in this clip. In fairness to the readers, I have never listened to her and I am not now a Yankee fan although I became one as a kid in the late 50s and was solid until George became the owner. Fire Torre? True, he's not the brightest bulb in the managerial chandelier, but: TOO BAD YOU CAN'T FIRE THE OWNER!!!
