that volcano is pretty amazing. So glad the island was uninhabited, but so sad that it is now annihilated. The woman, wow - just wow. it's no wonder her son has behavior issues, wonder where he learned that from? Such a sad situation.

That Volcano. Wow. Takes me back about 29 years... Scary! The woman biting the principal? Sad. She was there because her son was being suspended too. Makes me wonder why he was being suspended.

Sad, Liliblu, but what's even sadder is that I'm not all that surprised.

HOPEfully the volcanic eruption will block out a little of the sun, and help the earth cool.

54,000 in weekly expenses? What is she doing, bathing in $100 bills? I'm not sure even that would be 54K a week!
