Who the hell wrote that headline? It's incomprehensible.

A page right out of the Clinton handbook.

running the eureka, il sheriff's dept may be possible from florida but getting re-elected probably isn't.

"County Board Chairman Tom Janssen had said there was no official effort to find Myers because there was no indication of foul play. Janssen said that because Myers is an elected official, he can run his office as he sees fit.

"If (Myers) wants to go to Florida and communicate by computer laptop and e-mail and live in a condo and play golf all day, then he can do that," Janssen said Friday.
SWEEET! are they hiring????????????????????????????????????

your tax dollars at work

My brother goes to college in Eureka. Apparently the sheriff is a fun guy to drink with.

He must have been doing an under cover sting operation at the strip club. You really need a lot of evidence in those type of cases. You know.... photos of hot young strippers going down on you and such. Sounds like he was just doing his job. Do you know how much a lap dance costs these days?

When did CNN become a commercial for AOL??

Johnson :.. Remember.., when we don't vote, we also DO NOT get to voice an opinion on the outcome..;)

I have only one opinion of all elected officials: They are all weasels.

Voting is a right and a privilege, not a law. I choose not to exercise that right. That is my priviledge.

There is no penalty for not voting.

However, There *is* actually a PENALTY for registering to vote: You officially become eligible for Jury Duty. I have yet to meet anyone who looks forward to Jury Duty. (Except some Farker who lives at home with his parents and has nothing better to do...)

There is also no law against voicing an opinion.

If I find someone worth my time, I will vote.

until then........don't count ME in with your WE.

Ham Salad--->hoping that nobody beats me to the punch......CNN was a Ted Turner property (among many others....including the Braves)....which was merged into TimeWarner....and then there was the fat merger with America Online a few years back. If you think about it, AOLTimeWarner owns a farkload of channels (HBO & TBS, et al.....) on your cable system...and a lot of content (movies, music, & other intellectual property).

So...since CNN is now an AOLTimeWarner property, you (or anyone else), shouldn't be surprised to see LOTS of commercials (crossbranded) promoting their products.

Good night to all.

Uhm Johnson I don't know where you get your info but registering to vote isn't what gets you into the lists for Jury Duty, they pull thier records straight from the DMV. If you have either a Driver's License or a State ID and are over the age of 18 you're elligable for Jury Duty.
2001-11-12 11:16:13 PM  
Illinois pulls their Jury Duty roster from a list that is "compiled" from a combination of registered voters, IL Driver's licenses, IL State ID cards and IL Disability cards.

Does this mean they "cross-reference" the names and addresses once "compiled". I don't know.

Do they use separate lists? I don't know.

I do know that after 25 years, of "eligibility" I have never been called.

I chalk it up to not registering to vote. Until proven otherwise.

Also- did you know that in Oregon, Civil Trials pull their jury lists ONLY from Registered Voters and Criminal Trials pull their jury lists ONLY from DMV records?

Every State is different.
