Yes,How will they ever have a unique signature all their own?Everyone going to print and identify byRead More stick letters.?How will they be able to read old love letters their grandparents wrote 100 years ago or the census when researching their ancestry?I think the signature like the Declaration of Independence is YOURS and your alone.I am amazed how we just delete things from life and don't think down the road.Really is it that hard to tech this?

Common Core is not a creature of the Federal government so that argument is moot. It was created byRead More a confederation of state leaders. Interestingly, the fact that people believe the common core is a federal program actually prooves the necessity of the program.

Personally, I wouldnt have sued but if the family wound up in a financially dire situation as aRead More result of medical costs, I could understand going for those to have them covered. I doubt this was any kind of "get rich quick" scheme mainly because as the article said,the award only covered medical and legal costs. The family can't even touch the 9k in the account, only the son can when he turns 18 (and lets be honest, college tution will devour that in the first semester). Think before you judge people.

You say it is a money grab, but these types of settlements go into an account that only the childRead More can access when they turn 18 the parents gain nothing from this. I agree it sounds ridiculous because the injury occurred during a school game. But consider this: would you feel differently about the kids broken leg if an improperly secured appliance fell on him at an appliance store? The first patch article suggested he could never fully recover from his injury which could affect his future ability to earn money. It is very easy to pass quick judgement and say nah, I wouldn't sue. Until you are in the position to have to make that decision you can't know how you would handle it.

Good job on saving so much money. Now you can pay half the injury money to the ambulance-chasingRead More parents of the kid who couldn't handle a game of red rover.

This game was played during P.E. No more baseball, football, kickball. Running can only be doneRead More after the track is inspected for potholes and all sticks and rocks have been removed by a certified track inspector. Furthermore all children will be wrapped in bubble wrap before being allowed to stand around at recess.

7th grade is too old to play that game. its meant for elementary age anyway.
Kim Joralemon November 1, 2013 at 08:49 am
Oh and its law suits that cause schools to discontinue sports anyway.
