It's so nice how you do all the research for us pretty much. We don't have to know how to navigate because all the good stuff is right there. Wow, I just used the reading in a real-world application!

I think that makes you a great synthesizer Jonathan. I second your remark about Mr. Peters’ research work. It’s nice to have a veritable trove of information to help us in our papers.

I appreciate all the sources and i enjoy reading the articles, this gives me lots of new ideas. Covering many different subjects,this has been very beneficial to me, "Weekend Link Dump" great stuff, this is coming from someone who needs it. The last time I step foot in a school setting was a Davis High in 1981. Thanks

It's nice to connect with this type of information in a academic setting. It really helps me filter between academic significance in opinion and all the hosers out their that don't know their ass from a hole in the wall.

I think it is great that rent is dropping in New York. This will help people fine safe livable places that they can actually afford. New York is very expensive to live in and cheaper rent will help the lower class. This might be the only positive outcome of the economic crisis we are in. Thanks Peters for the great research.

I was reading about Google copying books. Did they really not ask the people before they put a copy of the entire book online? You would think that they had to. There is going to be a lot of problems if Google doesn't get the ok to put books online.

Yes, great info at the tip of our fingers all we need to do is point and click to the site! lol I am going to make a point at the cubical war, that is kinda of frightening to think about people working for the military/gamers/office people that are just like the terriosts at the high schools ready to explode. We have heard about more and more parents killing the entire family because of stress and pressure. Scary because of what money and greed does, it causes stress, which causes parents to kill their kids so they dont have stress, and can now earn less money....

Also, I got really really lucky with the new place I found last month to move into. I swear by Craigslist, I find and sell everything on there for FREE! If the government knew all that use this fanatistic service would probably all get stressed over money and kill themselves...jk anyways, rent is going up in Yakima alittle bit on the rise though, so I put an ad out like I have done before and an older lady recognized my last name and knew my mom and my dad. Great lady, get along really really good and she has a big goofy dog that loves me! Its so much better than being on your own, it gets lonely after a while. I only pay 300 a month no contract, whole downstairs to myself and all ulities paid for, net, cable, yes cable, w/s/g and a garage in a really nice area. Someone was looking out for me and it wasnt the government.
