Sen. David Jayes actions are deplorable and quite disappointing, but this does not give the Senate adequate grounds for dismissal. Jaye, R-Washington Township, faced charges in a Florida court for domestic abuse against fiancée Sonia Kloss, but the charges were dropped last week.
Firestones decision to end its partnership with Ford Motor Co. was the best choice for the tire company. Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. announced Tuesday it would stop selling tires to Ford Motor Co. Ford has also announced intentions to replace up to 13 million Firestone tires in an effort to improve public relations since the massive tire recall last summer. Bridgestone/Firestone executives have admitted problems with its Wilderness AT tires, which used to be standard packaging on the Ford Explorer, but also attribute the sport utility vehicles problems to Fords design. General Motors still uses Firestone tires on 14 models, and has found no problems. John Lampe, Bridgestone/Firestone chief executive and president, said on ABCs Good Morning America on Tuesday that Ford Explorers with replaced tires in Venezuela continue to roll over. While both companies clearly have problems, Firestone made a wise decision by splitting with Ford. Firestone has made attempts to improve its product by recalling the ATX, ATX II and Wilderness AT model tires.
In civil procedure, generally, the rule of thumb is as follows: If you have a good case, you cite the facts; if you have a bad case, you cite the law; and if you have no case, you jump up and down, point your finger, scream and yell behind closed doors and demand Sen.

The death of Bagel Fragel Deli is totally unreal to me. Ive been used to these sort of drastic changes in my life happening all at once ever since I moved out of my parents house, like the end of finals week when people move out of their dorms and apartments and classes end.
The Bush administrations plan to fix the national energy crisis is shortsighted and selfish. It is meddling in a situation that is ultimately out of its hands. According to the White House, the nation is headed toward a major energy crisis and the only way to fix it is with a major campaign.
The federal government had not executed a prisoner in 37 years when on March 15, 1963, it executed Victor Feguer for murder and kidnapping.Timothy McVeigh was scheduled to die Wednesday, and Ill make the argument that Feguer should remain the last person the government has killed.The latest developments that resulted in the momentary delay of McVeighs execution allow us to step back and evaluate the death penalty practice and its value in our society.While he has admitted to committing the worst, most heinous act of terrorism in the history of the United States, the question of whether capital punishment is morally and rationally acceptable is still up in the air in his case.Michigan may not have had a tragedy equivalent to the Oklahoma City bombing, but that hasnt stopped the pressure to bring the death penalty to our state.In 1999, I was covering the Capitol for The State News when state Sen.
The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling against medical marijuana makes sense, although the logic behind the existing laws do not. The high court issued the decision Monday, supporting the federal law that classifies marijuana as illegal, leaving no exception for medicinal purposes. After a unanimous vote, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote it is clear from the text of the act that Congress has made a determination that marijuana has no medicinal benefits worthy of an exception. The Courts ruling is understandable.
