I'd never heard of Nazis made from a meteorite. Do writers today not proofread their headlines or know that the placement of modifiers changes the meaning? I'm pretty sure it was the statue made of a meteorite, so why not say so?
The laws on that sort of thing are so odd. I can see not bringing up some prior stuff if it is unrelated, but since this was a similar instance (DWI) it should be relevant. If you have ever tried to figure out statute, you'll find that it is harder than rocket science!
JCLifer - I am hoping your comment is not serious and that you are just making the point about so much of this being in the news. As a Catholic who grew up in the faith and continues to practice it, I have known many priests in my lifetime - who were and are good men who would never harm a child or stand back and hide someone who did. Unfortunately the few who are "bad apples" are the ones who get press time. It is offensive to me that everyone assumes the worst of one group of people as a result of this.
I am confused - who is Taylor?
With seven convictions, why is this yahoo out on the streets?
They did that for the 2000 elections in Jackson County, too. It is a nice way to get the community together. Wish they did that more places!
What on earth is WRONG with these people?
Don't know about other states, but the proposal for Missouri is simply "photo ID" and doesn't specify that it be just for voting. Driver license, student ID, non-driver photo ID, all supposed to be acceptable. That being said, I don't believe that the supposed "voter fraud" is as prevalent as some who tout the ID need seem to think. There is the whole issue with those not eligible registering (people filling out bogus forms), but if they don't register in person and show ID at that time, they don't receive voter ID from the local election authority, and would then have to show some form of ID at the polling place. So unless the person who filled out he form as "Mickey Mouse" actually has some ID with that name, they aren't going to be allowed to vote. All they've really accomplished is to waste someone's time.
Sad thing about this is the incredible waste of people's time with it. The elderly or uneducated get these and either panic because they think it means they aren't registered, or they just blindly fill them in and mail them where the election authority's staff must check them in and then process them, only to find that the person is already registered. Those who are upset and confused, call the election authority, wasting more staff time to explain to the person that they can just throw it away and NO it did not come from the election office, so it isn't the state or county wasting money sending them out. These organizations are a pain in the rear.
Perhaps the athiests should just stay away from the places whose names have any religious connection.
