    Yes! I'd love to know!

    And KC and opera fans are coming together to get MLB to allow Joyce DiDonato to sing the National Anthem at one of the games at KC. I'm hoping the outpouring for her gets her the chance she so wants. Ms. DiDonato is a truly gifted singer, a KC native and lifelong Royals fan! (Who says opera stars don't follow sports?)

    I think that's much more fascinating than the song being banned.

    PJ-how is criminally negligent manslaughter different from criminally negligent homicide? (This sounds really like the latter-she didn't consent to a biopsy-in writing anyhow-and if that was ruled a factor, wouldn't the doctor-who wasn't even supposed to be there, much less performing an invasive biopsy-be responsible? (And I guess I'd think the photo is pretty damning evidence too.))

    Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Geez.

    I agree Gaveston. I am a Christian-but a liberal one. I don't like extremists of ANY denomination-they make me very uneasy.
  • 4th grade test from Christian school  Oct 7 2014, 01:24:42 PM
    The dad indicated she's a high functioning student. Maybe she's not really he just thinks so. "She is ahead of most of her peers and also is taking Latin there."
    I suppose it was too much inference on my part to think she might at least belong in a gifted program.

    I can't believe he's letting her stay there the rest of the year. I'd take my kid out right away. (They can put her into a gifted program at a public school at least.)
  • Gone Girl  Oct 6 2014, 01:24:54 PM
    I didn't care as much for the film as everyone else here, entertainment value aside. It was entertaining and a fascinating pot boiler and all that. It wasn't that difficult to figure out that her story didn't match up. Also, I am guessing the writer doesn't like marriage very much. It will probably win a few awards, but I personally was touched more by a totally different film, Pride, than this, which I expected a lot out of and it failed to deliver.

  • Avoid Rape By Driving Responsibly  Sep 26 2014, 09:44:35 AM
    I have a better idea-forced castration to the cops who do this stuff. (And any other offenders of a non-cop nature as well.)
  • Why Joan Rivers Died  Sep 15 2014, 01:56:46 PM
    The thing about her saying no is that they asked before the procedure whether she would consent to the biopsy-and she would not consent (is that not the same as saying no?).

    I think that what was done is very suspect-endoscopies are very routine procedures and can easily be done without hurting the patient.
  • Why Joan Rivers Died  Sep 15 2014, 01:22:40 PM
    I was wondering that, too, Cats. (I was talking to a lawyer about this as a what if and he said it's not necessarily negligent homicide. I'd sure like to know what it is then-not only was this guy NOT supposed to be there, but I daresay had he not performed a procedure that she didn't authorize, she might still be alive. It wasn't his decision to make. Period.)
  • Why Joan Rivers Died  Sep 15 2014, 12:48:58 PM
    Pal Joey-I read somewhere that she was asked for permission to perform the biopsy and said no. If they can prove that these doctors took it upon themselves to do this without her consent (she did sign off on an endoscopy I read-but that doesn't include a biopsy), then they're looking at the negligent homicide (which is what I tend to think happened). Why they couldn't leave well enough alone I will never understand. (She may have had a reason for saying no.)

  • Why Disney characters rarely have mothers.  Sep 12 2014, 10:58:39 AM
    In Mary Poppins, the children sure have a mom.

    In Dumbo it's all about a mom and a son (and their eventual reunion).

    True, there are a lot of stories in Disney without female figures-but a lot of the source material doesn't have them either. (Cinderella-the father is a widower; Little Mermaid-she's never mentioned in the original; Snow White-She does die (they mention that); Frozen is an anomaly because they deviated so much from the original); Maleficent there is indeed a mot
  • Reese Witherspoon IS Peggy Lee  Sep 9 2014, 02:00:46 PM
    Reese was amazing as June-and she's the one with the Oscar. (I thought she was pretty amazing in Walk the Line-they should've given Joaquim the Oscar, too. The chemistry between them was incredible.) I'll be interested to see her as Peggy Lee, who I enjoyed as a kid.
  • 2014 US Open  Sep 6 2014, 05:08:38 PM
    I want Nishikori. It would be cool to have someone from a country that's never won a men's title in this to get it. He's also really good.

    Things not looking good for Roger...Cilic v. Nishikori...hmmmm

    (FYI-Nishikori has defeated Roger on hard surface...)
  • 2014 US Open  Sep 6 2014, 04:02:11 PM
    I loved watching Nishikori win. He played really well and I think perhaps the momentum could be in his favor. (I know, Federer, but this guy really played brilliant tennis.)

    I'm in Kai's corner. He is fun to watch and seemed like a cool guy in the interview.
  • Your Favorite Joan Rivers One Liners  Sep 4 2014, 04:36:15 PM
    "My vagina is like Newark. Men know it's there, but they don't want to visit."

    I love that. I actually heard her utter those words-it was sooo funny and I totally thought it was amazing that a woman (who not a couple of seconds before had been sitting near me) was uttering those words (this was in my younger days...).

    I must say I have a special affinity for this one (since I truly detest Justin Bieber):

    "I said Justin Bieber looked like a little lesbian -- and I stand
  • Rest In peace Joan Rivers  Sep 4 2014, 03:47:34 PM
    That's probably how she'd want it, too-she wouldn't want her family to get bogged down in sorrow.

  • God to Joan Rivers: Whose face are you wearing?  Sep 4 2014, 11:54:28 AM
    I'm not a lawyer but I work in the field. I am also very familiar with this procedure (I haven't had it myself, but a grandmother with COPD sure has-and she's still here). If someone is to blame, I just want to see them unable to harm anyone else.

    My thoughts and prayers to Melissa. Maybe she can find solace in how much joy her mom brought to others.
