Reading a new thread with only a link in it to a huge-sized message with photos that I just finished reading hits pretty high on the sigh-o-meter. I mean, why post in the original thread, when you can create a new one reliving it instead?

Other than that, hearing the garbage truck outside bright and early when no one had taken the garbage out made me sigh today. To not be anyone's external brain for just one day!

Going to the post office to pick up a package that the mailman could not fit into my mailbox and waiting for a full hour until the post-person tells me that they may have sent my packet off to another destination by inadvertance, may he please have my phone number in case they find it ?

I'd like to counter the picture of above with the following realities of the picture below.


Douglas Steenland
Northwest Airlines

You can't see the photos of devastation this man has created in the lives of the American people who work for the company he runs. If you could, it would be much darker and more sinister than the propaganda intended in the picture above.

While the American workers who saved his company took a 40% cut is wages, loss of health care and retirement benefits under threat, this man receives a salary that is more than 400% above the original pay of his labor force, along with a $26 million bonus and health care for life. Even if he runs the company into the ground when his 4 year contract is complete, his money is in escrow and can't be touched.

There are too many like him working quietly in the background as they greedily fill their pockets with the shattered glass of the lives of hard working people.

In this thread the sigh is the moral compass of the person who set the original post in current events. It is meant to shock, an example of yellow journalism; if it bleeds it leads.

There is no real or documented historical perspective that follows this picture in the thread.

I contend that the intended posting of this photo accompanied by the propaganda is only meant to spit in the faces of those who frequent this board.

Craig would post what made him sigh, not what he would post on. Anybody that posted under Duke now would just be reinforcing that, I would think you both would know better than that, this is what bothers him, and me too.

Thanks, but I'd rather post what i want too.

You guys don't post under the thread-fascist, why should we?

Reprimanding somebody for making a useless thread, then posting on it anyway makes me sigh.

The original post made me sigh too, but sighing about a post and then posting about sighing about it, then posting about sighing about the sigher who posted about the post that made him sigh makes me sigh.

i just found out that my best friend broke up with his boyfriend of 6 years. for really lousy reasons. i liked his boyfriend. they were good for each other. i'm probably never going to see his now-ex again. *sigh*

i think i'm more upset about this than my friend is.

HELMSLEY--Leona. The Trustees, Overseers, Physicians, Faculty and Staff of New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend Leona Helmsley. She and her late husband, Harry Helmsley, a Life Governor of the former New York Hospital, were long and dedicated supporters of the Medical Center. Their generosity established the Helmsley Medical Tower, which provides valuable clinical and living space, and funded two major centers, the Helmsley Cardiovascular Center and the Helmsley Rehabilitation Center. In 2006, Mrs. Helmsley helped to establish advanced facilities for colon and rectal surgery--the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Center for Colon and Rectal Surgery and the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Surgical Suite. Mrs. Helmsley was a committed advocate for medical research, education and the needs of patients and their families. Her legacy will be important to New Yorkers for generations to come. We join with all those who knew her in mourning her loss. Our deepest condolences are extended to Mrs. Helmsley's family and friends. John J. Mack Chairman Board of Trustees Herbert Pardes, M.D. President and CEO NY-Presbyterian Hospital Sanford I. Weill Chairman Board of Overseers Antonio M. Gotto Jr., M.D. Dean Weill Cornell Medical College

I'm sorry, lukku - how did you know her?

In a fit of stupidity, I plugged my AC adapter into the area usually meant for a network cable. No adapter means no juice for the old laptop, which means no battery power, which means it's just me, a novel, and the mosquitos for three days straight.

that's a real bummer. I can relate - read/finished three books and was assaulted by skeeters everytime I went outside. I(and my kids) missed MY computer so much last week that I(and my kids) are staying home this weekend.
