I can't wholly agree with Mabo.

British comedy is an acquired taste for most Americans, and very few have the patience to get to know and love it. Most of the guys I know that appreciate British humor were stationed in England and 'Stockholm Syndrome'd into loving it.

Also, I can't appreciate Adam Sandler. A clever play on words will get a laugh from me, but by and large, the stuff that Sandler does is just painful to experience. He really needs to stop singing, as well.

I see where you're coming from Ranger, but it's a little more difficult for me to go out and kill my own food when I'm poor living in the inner city. I can afford to eat fast food and instant stuff on store shelves, but my ancestors didn't have so many chemicals in their food.

I can't stop laughing. The best part is how right after you say this, you accuse the other guy of believing stereotypes.

Yardley, members of Congress are not subject to insider-trading laws. Recently, a couple congresspeople have introduced bills that WOULD make them liable to insider-trading rules, but somehow my crystal ball says those bills will quitely die in the lawmaking process.

America...I am dissapointed.

Unless of course, people use "angels" to describe people who do undescribable amounts of good in the world, like firefighters. In that case, it's fine.

Eight companies.....over the course of seven years.....and the total settlement isn't even a billion dollars? Good job, American regulators; way to take those payoffs like pros.

I'm not so sure about these calls to get rid of Un. While there isn't much hope he will be a reformer, he does have experience outside of North Korea, so it's possible. I haven't heard any policies come out of him, so here's to hoping he feels a little more for the North Korean people than his father did.

C'mon Tokyo, not all Americans are fat and don't care....just most of us (I am thankfully not in that group). And as for a watchdog group: No one is MAKING you buy it and eat it; it's your choice to make the attempt.
