[ - ] Went to a very high profile black tie wedding last night with about 350 guests. There were no table assignments and not enough seats for all the guests. After the ceremony everyone had to rush to snag a table, and at least 25% ended up at standing cocktail tables or lounge style couches. Then when dinner was served, it was a buffet! Is it normal for guests to have to stand in line in tuxes and gowns and serve themselves? And then not have a table to return to? The couple is very well off (celeb) so money was not the issue here. I have nothing against buffets at weddings, but with over 300 people in line, it does not work. 45 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Naive response showing lack of political understanding of racism. Police arrest in the usa means simply you are booked. You have a right to a fair trial by peers for your charged crimes. Under facism, the arrest is the trial. Not here, it's just an arrest. The legal system then takes over [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] 10 year old DD is very dramatic--often making sweeping generalizations. Heard the word depression recently and now keeps saying she's depressed. When do I take this seriously? She doesn't seem depressed. Tired, sure and very busy lately. If you've been through 10 with a girl--is it a particularly dramatic time?
