this is one of the most tragic things i have read

i'm posting it because i have very long hair. i am quite careful but one never knows. 9/10ths of the time, it is in a bun. every once in a while it will be in a braid or a ponytail. we have a revolving door at work that's automatic. it DOES have a reverse switch on it, but i ALWAYS make sure my hair is not flying about.  one doesn't think things like this can happen. this story shows us they can

and of course to the family and friends of ms dufault, i am so very sorry for your loss

please let's get teh decriminalization of marijuana passed!

and believe it or not, i do NOT smoke it (or use it in any form). i sure do know if i was going through something painful (as in cancer treatments or the like), i WOULD be smoking it. there is absolutely NO reason it should be a crime. i even think it should not be a ticket-able offense

Judiciary Committee OKs Bill To Decriminalize Small Amounts Of Marijuana

ARTFORD— — Lawmakers took a step Tuesday toward decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana.

The legislature's judiciary committee approved a measure that would make the penalty for possession of a half-ounce of marijuana or less akin to receiving a speeding ticket. Those charged would be assessed fines instead of facing criminal penalties.

The committee passed a similar bill in 2009, but it died before the session ended.................
