So, my question is this,actually a couple....what will happen to the guy who wanted to marry his car? Because they have allowed "gay" marriage (disgusting as it may be), and are working now on plural marriages, will this man be allowed to then marry his car? How about the guy down the street, will he then be allowed to marry his goat? My, my, my what a can of worms the SCOTUS has opened.

LaHood .... Conservative? Yes. Career politician? Yes. Part of the problem? Certainly. I darn near stopped in the Flynn campaign office on 6th Street today with $100.00. I'll have to drop by tomorrow for sure.

Why is it necessary to keep showing a killer police mug shot? If you need a picture why not show the dead victim, 12-year-old Ray Humphrey Junior. The least we see of this scum the better.

Haha I feel like your giving me one of those "it depends on what your definition of the word is is" defenses. I'll admit this, you got the "not gonna take me down" spirit of a politician caught in a pickle. Unfortunately the integrity of a politician comes with it.
