Someone needs to be held responsible for these egregious lapses.

Incorrect, pnotto. Abstinence does not work "every time it is used and/or tried". Perhaps Mrs. Reagan erroneously thought this to be true, but she could have/should have consulted some of the experts on the subject that were available to disabuse her of that notion.

"Just Say No". Really? That simplistic platitude is as worthless now as it was then. What a sad woman: so completely out of touch with the reality of most ordinary people's lives. Wonder if she'll be given the state funeral she so audaciously requested? If so, I think I'll request one, as well. After all, as a Vietnam veteran, I think I (and ALL vets) did more for this country than she ever did.

There's just one thing about this incident I do not understand. There were allegedly 12 (TWELVE) security cameras on the bus, plus 4 (FOUR) videos taken by others. And they DON'T collectively reveal what really happened? Are you kidding me? That many cameras don't lie. These young ladies were either assaulted, or not. They were either victims or perpetrators, or not. Come on, people. Stop with the legal manipulations. Assemble a jury, have them look at the videos, and let them decide. The essence of this case should/must be a whole lot simpler and self-evident than what is being reported.

I agree with geneshan2's comment. In my view, education is critically important, but where does one draw the proverbial "line"? At a million a year? Two million? Don't forget that many (perhaps most) of these individuals will someday draw very handsome pensions based on their high salary levels.

I agree with all of the above comments. What kind of idiot would shoot a bison, except perhaps in self-defense? Oh, wait-I know-a certifiable, total idiot!

Joann 64 is absolutely right. The Public Officers' Law (which allows these payments) should be repealed. It's disgusting that Bruno should get a nickel.

This is not only a "reason to smile"; it's a reason for everyone to jump with joy for both Ms. Lydon and Zeus. Can you imagine what he's endured? Kudos to Mr. Senecal and his team of Schenectady firefighters. Nice work!!

If it's true the sprinklers did not work, whoever owns the building(s) should be fined mightily - and sent to prison, as well.
