I saw a few minutes of your show this am while you were talking about the death penalty for rape, murder etc.
How do you feel about the 11 year old who shot his dad's pregnant fiance with the 20 gauge that dad bought him for Christmas

The right wing in PA seems to love trying 10 and above year olds as adults these days. and they have the death penalty

What do you think, should they fry the little guy?
What punishment should his dad have for supplying the murder weapon. Careful, don't anger your gun lover friends here.

So happy that Mr. Johnson is happy whilst changing his engine at 30,000 feet. My family however left Fairpoint as of two weeks ago and Fairpoint still can't seem to release our number. They are effectively blocking my entire family and anyone else with a Fairpoint from calling me. And of course they are blaming my new provider. Listening to Mr. Johnson I finally understand. As I am no longer a customer Fairpoint doesn't care how much trouble they cause me.
He doesn't need to create 100 new jobs he needs to create 1000 then maybe I will be allowed to leave Fairpoint far behind.
