[ - ] If good people stop reproducing, eventually there won't be very many good people left in the world. I think we're headed that way as a society and it's a really depressing thought :( 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

so if good can be inherited, why can't intelligence? that's what you should really be worried about, the idiots reproducing. that's what's going to do in the human race. generally, intelligence breeds compassion and empathy. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] child passport renewal question: traveling in 2 weeks and just realized that dd's passport expires in less than 2 months. I am divorced and ex husband is in town only until tomorrow. I made an appointment for us tomorrow morning at a passport agency, but just realized that I have the original birth certificate, not a certified copy of it... I am hoping the original document will be considered valid. So worried now and don't know what to do... any feedback? Thanks 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

"LAST Thursday, Sheldon Silver, the speaker of the New York Assembly for the past 20 years, was arrested and charged with mail and wire fraud, extortion and receiving bribes. According to Preet Bharara, the federal prosecutor who brought the charges, the once seemingly untouchable Mr. Silver took millions of dollars for legal work he did not do. In exchange, he used his official power to steer business to a law firm that specialized in getting tax breaks for real estate developers, and he directed state funds to a doctor who referred cases to another law firm that paid Mr. Silver fees."
