Mar 1st 2011 6:56AM I would probably consider paying him for the canceled episodes, even though I'm against it, just to end the contract and sever ties with him. I would then contract someone else to replace him for the next season. He can't sue for not renewing a contract, only for early termination of the existing contract.
Jan 22nd 2011 8:53AM Quite spectacular! You won't get a home anywhere near that size or with those amenities for that price in south Florida.
Nov 2nd 2010 3:17PM If they were mules carrying it for someone else, prison is probably a much safer place than being out on the street. If was their own stash, then they're out a large amount of money AND doing time. Sucks to be them right about now.
Kind of hard to feel sorry for someone when they get busted doing something they know is illegal.
Oct 25th 2010 12:11PM I watched the game and saw the replay numerous times. How can the officials say there was no clear evidence that Miami recovered? Three Dolphins were on it before the first Steeler jumped onto the dogpile. It was clearly a biased decision by someone who wanted Pittsburgh to win the game; probably had money riding on it.

I meant to say my Harley is the only American made vehicle I have owned in 20 years NOT that it is the only vehicle I have owned.
I don't like admitting they have all been German or Japanese, but I expect quality and service when I spend hard earned dollars on a vehicle. I look forward to a time when I can rely on Detroit to give me that.
Oct 21st 2010 9:34AM Wow! Who would have ever imagined a Hyundai selling for $64k?
It's amusing to read posts from the Hyundai "haters." Yes, the social stigma is still lingering and will be for some time. I just did a little research and learned that the company originated in the 60's, had a licensing agreement with Ford and produced it's first independently designed car in 1974. I thought when the Excel came out in 1985 that it was a new start up company. When the company first began importing to the US the cars they produced were low budget and poor quality. Now, all these years later, they are producing top quality cars with comparable amenities of cars far more expensive. To "Michiganboy" who compares the more expensive Cadillac DTS, you will not find these features in the Cadillac:
50/50 split rear seats (four-passenger seating) with reclining function,
First-Class passenger-side rear seat with leg support and a massage system,
Cooled rear seats, a rear-seat entertainment system with an eight-inch monitor,
Thermoelectric rear center console refrigerator,
Rear-seat power up/down head rests,
Rear-seat illuminated vanity mirrors,
Forward-view cornering camera,
Power trunk lid.
Well, ok, you may find the power trunk lid. The rest of those features are found only on high end luxury cars such as the Maybach which will set you back around $300k.
Take a look at the mid-range Elantra model. For just under $20k it's nicer than most American cars of that price. With models like the Genesis and Equus, consumers will quickly overcome the present stigma associated with Hyundai and they will soon be regarded as a major competitor in the luxury market. I hope that our Big 3 in Detroit pay attention and learn a few things. I am all for buying American and supporting our economy, but my Harley is the only vehicle I have owned in 20 years. I grew tired of buying crap and getting poor service after the sale (60's and 70's muscle cars excluded, of course!).
Oct 21st 2010 8:40AM In Moscow, the cars are slow and get in the way, but this guy still made it to work on time. That's job dedication!
Oct 18th 2010 1:36PM Simply adding "formal attire required" on the invitation would have prevented this from being an issue. Maybe the performance was cut due to time, as Mr. Simpson claims. I wasn't there and I'm pretty sure no one here posting remarks was either. Anyway, who cares?
Oct 7th 2010 10:39PM "Who cares? Supercars may be pointless, but they're awesome." was my answer and it's the majority vote as well.
They are nothing more than a means to show off your wealth. And I don't mean that in a negative way. I would most certainly own one if I had the money. The point is, you will never be able to drive them as they are intended. Does it matter if the car can accellerate 0-60 in two seconds and reach speeds 200+mph? They look awesome and they turn heads. That's all they're good for.
My Harley turns heads and gets plenty of looks and it only cost $25k. I think I got more bang for my buck than the guy who spent $1 million on his Veyron!
Oct 4th 2010 8:40PM Toomer, Barber, Strahan, Shockey.....I miss that era. The new generation of Giants is evolving though so things are looking up.
