What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

An off-duty Toledo police officer is accused of attacking a family in a Kroger parking lot. Now that family wants to take legal action.

The attorney now representing the family says they'll have to wait until the criminal process finishes before taking any other action. Toledo Officer Robert Adams is on paid administrative leave right while his department and prosecutors find out exactly what happened. It all happened the night of June 1 in the Kroger parking lot at the Spring Meadows shopping center. The family told Sylvania Police and Lucas County Sheriff officers that Officer Adams hit and kicked their car, even shattering their window.

It is a bad sign when it is less of a hassle to go through customs in Saudi Arabia then to enter back into my own country.

"While not physically intrusive as in the case of a strip or body cavity search, the search of one's private and valuable personal information stored on a hard drive or other electronic storage device can be just as much, if not more, of an intrusion in the dignity and privacy interests of a person. This is because electronic storage devices function as an extension of our own memory," Pregeson wrote in an October 2, 2006 opinion.

A great response from OXO to an accusation that they ripped off the design of a competitor's product. Measured, respectful (especially considering the other side's very public disrespect), clear, and well documented.

Remember way back to, oh, six months ago when champagne was popping and markets were roaring?

Back when companies with no or few profits could premiere on the world stage to grand applause by merely converting a dollar into fifty cents? Those were the good times of boom, boom, pow. It's amazing how quickly everyone has gone from rocking out to that tune to loathing those same beats. But that's exactly what's happened to the pop stocks of just a few minutes ago. Here's a brief recap of just the last six months for three former stars...

President Barack Obama's State of the Union address last week was the lowest rated since Bill Clinton's swansong in 2000. If you feel it's hard to get excited about the rubbish this guy continues to peddle, you're not alone.

Among the tedious list of bromides and half-truths, two objectives seem to stand out in Obama's speech - raising the minimum wage to $9.00 per hour, and establishing a universal preschool entitlement. I wish I could say it's not often the POTUS advocates policies that are unsupported by available evidence. Since I can't say that, let's review the evidence that shows minimum wage hikes and government preschool are bad ideas.

Arkansas law enforcement may now test a person's saliva to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Arkansas law enforcement may now test a person's saliva to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The law was passed in March and went into effect July 17. Lieutenant Allan Marx with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Department was a driving force behind the changing law. He said before the Arkansas DWI law changed, officers could test a person's blood, urine and breath. Marx said while working a case last year, he learned about saliva testing and recognized a need for it in Arkansas. "If there's ever a new way, a new tool that we can use to help not only law enforcement but help the public and the safety of the people out there, it needs to be used," said Marx. "I believe this product is going to save lives."

Attorney Kevin Kite put his legal career on hold in 2005 to homeschool his two boys, ages 9 and 13.

Kite and his wife, Middlebury College professor Michelle McCauley, say they don't object to public or private education, but came to the realization that their sons would do better outside of school, each learning at his own pace. The New Haven couple is among a growing number of Vermont parents who are opting to educate their children themselves. And, like many of their fellow stay-at-home teachers, they're up in arms about a July 23 memo from Vermont Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca that seeks to clarify the rules for the alternative form of education also known as "home study."

Dinosaurs may have gone extinct, but Internet stupidity hasn't.

The dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park" certainly looked real, but many Facebook users are mistaking the movie for real life. Facebook user Jay Branscomb uploaded a picture of Steven Spielberg sitting next to a Triceratops used in "Jurassic Park." Along with the photo, Branscomb posted the caption "Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man." And then the post exploded.

A World War two veteran who said he was roughed up by a Metro Police officer filed a lawsuit claiming he was handcuffed and slammed to the ground because of a 311 call.

George Pappas and his wife of 64 years, Sippin, moved to Las Vegas last year. The couple was looking for peace and quiet, but he said all that changed when Metro came knocking on their door. Pappas said the officer explained they had been dispatched to his house because of a 311 call. George said neither of them called and then the officer asked to speak to George's wife. "I opened the door, he stood by the wall and I was at the door, and we talked for a little bit and then he said that he had to check to see if everybody wasOK in the house," Pappas said. "I said, 'My wife is very ill, I can't let you see her,' so he marched me out and said, 'You are going down,' by grabbing my hand, putting the handcuffs on the left hand, and throwing me on the ground."
