The Wakeup Call
"Truly astonishing what horrors your family had been put through due to medical incompetence. Valuable lesson for those considering any elective surgery, research your surgeon's reputation carefully, ask around, talk to nurses. Learn about your surgeons specialty and subspecialty. In other words what type of operation they perform the most frequently and find a doctor who specializes in exactly, or closest to what you need done. "

An Elegant Solution
"How significant it is now that "we haven’t come up with a way of bringing back the dead..." No, such power belongs to just One... It's interesting, however, the direction of Mr. Macek's work as a writer... I guess this may be considered now his last contibution to us fans of his earlier Robotech-related work... Contibution I will always hold dearly near my heart till my last day on this Earth... I thank God for the life of Mr. Macek whose creative work inspired me greatly as I was still a child."

"I think that this is a remarkable story, but I would like to know what year this story takes place in becasuse I think that if it was early in the 1980's or something they might not have done enough research on the mononucleosis disease. I certainly hope they have donce more research on mononucleosis because i have never had it and I don't want it now. I am always tired and i have a cold and have been throwing up for weeks so i think that I might have mononucleosis. Doctors better have a cure!"

Missing
"Fortunately, this is one experience that I have never had. However, it has long been a desire of mine to help find missing people and reunite and ease some of the pain. Stan, I wish I could post my stories as fiction. Unfortunately, I can't. Because every story I have written has some truth in it, in fact, most of them are completely true, having been lived thru by either myself, or someone I am close to. Thank you for stopping by and reading my writings. If you wish to know more about Children of Fate, you can I believe contact me thru email someway or the other thru storyleap. I am not quite sure how but I would bet someone could tell you how to do just that. Just make sure you put COF in the subject line, as I do not open emails from those I have not heard of. jesse. I like reading your posts by the way. Have a happy Holiday. "

Life In Mono
"I'm so glad there are other people who understand this illness. I have had mono for a couple months now so nothing compared to other posters here but I must say that it is the worst thing ever. I used to be a very positive, energetic person. Now, even my significant other says I'm no fun anymore. I'm so frustrated because I can't enjoy the things I used to love and feel like a different person. Everytime I get the urge to do a little more than just the necessities, I fear the overwhelming tiredness and feverish feeling that follows the next day. I lost all my hobbies and motivation. My wedding day was hampered by mono because I was so nauseated and exhausted. The worst thing about mono is that you become a different person and it is a person you do not want to be--lazy and negative. I keep gaining flab because I can't exercise but at the same time I have to eat large and fatty meals or else I notice I feel sick. Sorry to be a downer but I hope there is a light at the end of this tunnel."

Libraries: Does The Future Look “Virtual?”
"Hi--I enjoyed reading your article, have always felt the same visceral response to libraries, so much so that since 2007 I have been enrolled in library school at the University of Rhode Island. If what you are suggesting is true, maybe I should not continue. In any case, it is very sad for me to think that my grandchildren, or great grandchildren, will never have the pleasures you described above very eloquently. One of my favorite quotes from "The Secret of Lost Things" is that "books are not lumps of paper, but minds on shelves.""

When Parents Abduct Their Children
"I finally after 4 years of a custody suit got my children awarded solely to me,, and unfortunately, i had to pick them up and do just this exact thing almost to get it accomplished. i was in jail overnight, and it's not the right thing to do, but then there is always two sides to every story. this happened to me back in the seventies, and then,, just as the judge awarded me sole custody, the paternal grandmother walked out of the court room, and my mom followed her: she had the children,, and was headed out of town, thank heavens they caught her,, we proved my ex tried to kill me and was on heroin,, so like i said there are two sides to every story ,, i hope yours works out or who evers story it is works out for the best,, all that matters is what is best for the children. oh by the way, i turned my self in for this act, because i was determined to prove that i would go to every lenght necessary to give my children a good home. i also let the paternal grandparents keep visitation rights after my children were adopted by second husband. after all, it was in the childrens best interest to keep seeing them. i know they loved them very much, and i couldn't take that love away from my children. why would i want to?? parents sometimes are the ones who need to grow up,, "

"Hi Beth, I'm a friend of your Mom's going all the way back to elementary school. You were a very little girl the last time I saw you. Your article makes the situation in Israel very real. I don't know if I could be as brave as you are. To have a child facing those dangers is difficult to imagine. We have newscasters in the U.S. who say, "Israel's reaction is an over reaction, after all the bombs didn't kill anyone!" How infuriating. Suppose Mexico were bombing Arizona every day. I can't imagine our government standing by and allowing it without retaliation. On our trip to Israel in April, we visited the military cemetery in Jerusalem. Our guide showed us where his nephew is buried and said, "There isn't a family in Israel that is not in mourning for a child or a cousin or a nephew or a granddaughter. We pray for you every day. May you never be counted in that group of mourners. Phyllis "

( i am now 18),i was also told that glandular fevevr takes away some of your immune system as it damages it! so without tonsils and gettin gladular fever a lot, im catching everything else!, for years now im always tired, i have no energy and frequently feel low, this is all down to glandular fever and i deffinately think doctors need to look into it more as its NOT just a virus, it ruins your life!

Bad Mortgages – Not Just For Dummies
"This story needs to be told louder than the media is crying. Among my co-workers there were speculative discussions that the sub-prime lending chaos was based on those who acquired homes they couldn't pay for due to the late-night infomercials scams. These scams told people with horrible credit and no means to afford a home that they could simply get a Tax ID number and acquire business credit to buy their home. No big deal on default, because it is in the credit line of a fake business. This is what many people believe happened and why so many Americans don't care if they default. Your story needs to be told louder than the media ruckus. I'm praying for you and wishing you the very best. Sincerely, Camille W."

"Hello Ted Martin See how much you know..lol When I referred to my partner it' was not about whether he or she is gay or because I am using a "California" agenda as you call it. Sheezzz you sound like a miserable homophobic bigot who cannot appreciate a NON gender article written for the sake of the story. A creative outlet something that was important to me and that I wanted to write. Yes, I do end the article with it's not about me.. but apparently you do not and cannot understand the whole point of the article. You are too blind with your idiotic self righteous insults. Figures you would vote for another idiot like McCain lol just so we are clear, I am not an American citizen therefore I cannot vote nor would I want to. As far as I am concerned they are all idiots including Obama. In conclusion that is not to say you cannot state your opinion on here.. however, I have learned the real art of communication is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. thanks for dropping by Gabriella Sannino"

"Between "your partner" and your "Toyota Prius" in addition to the fact that you are a "california Gal", it doesn't take much of a strech to know your liberal vote for Obama will wipe out my Conservative vote for McCain, Do you realize when you refer to your "significant other" in using the California Gay Agenda term of "my partner" that you are showing just how insignificant he or she really is in your life????????? If you do not have enough respect to address he/she by his/her name or his/her gender, you shouldn;t bother mentioning he/she at all because you put him/her in the same category as the dog. Whaddya mean "It isn't about you"? You use "I" in almost every utterance. For God's sake, it is all about YOU!! I feel sorry for both "your partner" and the dog!! tkmartin1070@gmail.com"

Georgian Gambit
"After reading this article, it is quite ovious you do not understand the events that have lead up to the Georgian invasion. Since its break away from Georgia proper, S. Osceitans have been crossing the border into Georgia and committing crimes, such as robbery, rape, and kidnapping for human trafficing. The seperatist governments in S. Oscetia and Abkazia are criminals backed by Moscow, (reference Eastern Europe post WWII elections, its an old trick). These S. Oscetians would retreat to S. Oscetia under Russian protection. Georgian authorities could not persue them. The analogy would be a Mexican Drug gang taking control of New Mexico, or Texas and Mexico recognizing them. Something like this was attempted two times that I can recal. On one occaision, We sent General "Black Jack" Persing in, the other is what drew us into WWI (The Zimmerman Telligram). A large portion of the "Russian citizens" in the seperatist regions were issued Russian passports under force, in order to offer an excuse to "Defend its citizens." Here is a question you should ask your self... Why does a "so called country" have Russian passports and not their own? This war in Georgia was provoked by Russia. I could continue for hours but I will leave it up to you to further educate your self. "

Stay at Home Mom or Career?
"I believe, that if you are financially secure and happy, staying at home is nice, but if you are struggling the baby will feel your anxiety. It's better to be doing what your feel is necessary. I, really, don't know, depends on individual circumstances. My wife enjoys being at home with the babies now, she will also be happy to go back to work once the year is up (Canadian maternity leave is one year). "

"Annette, I regret that you had to live through the terrible events you described in your commentary. However the focus of my story (Georgian Gambit) and of the response to Roger's comments was more on the geopolitical situation leading to the August 2008 Georgia-Russian military conflict. By the way, I would really like to read a story about your experience in Georgia on April 9, 1989 if you care to write one."

""Dear " Stan! I understand you hardly imagine many things! First, it was not "peaceful separation from former Soviet Union" as you write. It was in fact choked in blood as well as Baltic countries. You can read near history and find April 9, 1989. I was myself standing among the peacefully demonstrating people who were standing with flags and candles in their hands when Russian tanks and "spetnaz" special trained killers attacked them and killed mostly girls and females. Defenseless people! They sprayed killing and poisoning gasses there and many survived people were suffering after that and needed serious medical care. I remember Russian tanks standing in the streets if Tbilisi for a long time afterwords, just like that, in the streets!!!! If you call this peaceful it has no sense to talk with you and I won't start arguing about that last war Russian provoked in Georgia. I do not even know if you will ever read this article. Remember please: 1.Georgians love Russians when it goes to personal bases. 2.Georgians hate Russians when it goes to Solders Boots. And so will be to any one how will come to that land with a sword or a bullets. My last questions are: Why do not leave that country in peace with its Territory as it is! Have you hears about Sochi? Is it not enough? Why don't you take your Russian citizens who leave there without residence permit to mother Russia and leave the land? That so called Apxazian and South Osetian populations were majority Georgians before 1992 ethnic cleansing when more than 500 000 people were kicked off ( others killed) in that areas. Jesus Stan! You sound so naive! I would like so much to tell you....but just wake up please!!! Annette, September 2008 P.S.Lived for a long time in Georgia and Russian know them both "

"WOW...amazing article! My heart is still pounding and now I'm angry too at all the media lately . Thanks for opening my eyes. Being from Missouri I deal with tornadoes and flooding. The same issues get raised here. Days after the storms pass and people are uncovering their devastation, the concern is what this has done to the economy! What about the poor people trying to locate their scattered lives. Great article! Love your style of writing! "

"I still dont get it. If the Georgians wanted to protect people in the two breakaway states why didnt they phone Putin tell him warn him that action had to be taken quickly then solve the problem together, the situation makes them partners, if not by choice. Obviously life is too cheap East of the Görlitz or Pride comes before Reality "

Georgian Gambit
"Roger, I don't know if for S. Osetia to separate from Georgia would require approval of central Georgian government. When Kosovo decided to declare independence from Serbia international community quickly recognized it despite Serbian protest. Mr. Saakashvili would hardly imagine he can poke at Russians if not for the strong American support, furthermore, his government and military are on the U.S. payroll as Georgia has been economically bankrupt since its peaceful separation from former Soviet Union. Don't get me wrong, I have been critical of Russian government about the lack of truly free press in there and some of Mr. Putin's methods to re-establish centralized control of government and economy, however in the case with Georgia I don't see how Russia could just sit there. I don't believe most Georgians want confrontation with Russia. Georgians live and work in Russia and in many cases support their families on money they send home from Russia. Mr. Saakashvili did not have to spoil his relationship with his powerful neighbor, his country would benefit from new Russian prosperity, but the strategic interests of the US and the oil and gas supply lines going through Georgia resulted in American involvement in the region.

"Very wrong perception of politics indeed...by you, Mr. Slavutsky! The president of Georgia, or any other president of any other country in the world does not act on "hopes" but rather on hard guarantees, in a written form, sealed and signed. There is no such a thing as Mr. Saakashvili started military operations because he "hoped" blahblahblah...Every adult should know better than that. And it's not about WHO started but rather WHY started! When you get Russian troops in your territories present for almost two decades (not counting the Soviet rule) without any indication of them leaving, you can attack them any time you want, and this should be accepted normally. S.Ossetia and Abkhazia are Georgian regions with local autonomy status, which was given to these regions by the Georgian central government itself! If S. Ossetians and Abkhazians desire to become Russian citizens they could do so and they could also go to live in Russia, but they cannot take the land with them, right? There is no such a thing as S.Ossetia’s and Abkhazia’s recession without Georgia’s central government direct approval. It's like Bavaria separating from Germany without Berlin's approval, or Chechnya (yes, you remember that right?) doing so without Moscow’s approval. You know very well what happened when Chechnya tried this…or maybe you don’t?"

After finishing his role, his sleeping patterns might have been messed up, so he probably accidentally overdosed on medication."
