@mailyn, thanks! I appreciate the info. What do you know of or think about yahoo messengerRead More app....pretty safe to use??

Hey M, sorry for the late response. Since Apple's iPad is a closed system and you can only load appsRead More from their store, pretty much all of them have been vetted to be not harmful. The biggest issue we see on the iPads are people forgetting to restart them every once in awhile :-) We have free group classes at mac-fusion if you ever wanted to learn more about your iPad! http://mac-fusion.com/classes

What a joke they're making of this. The reason for this crash is California's criminal negligence.Read More Obviously the "distance" between opposing traffic traveling at 80 MPH doesn't matter. A "K" rail between the two vehicles would have PREVENTED this crash, undoubtedly. But Ca. would rather pay their public criminals outrages salaries, than invest a little of that money on HIGHWAY SAFETY. I hope all the families of the crash victims know that they need to SUE THE HELL OUT OF the state of California .

It's all about $$$$$. No K rails or bigger trucks. If you think that double trailers are scary youRead More might want to steer clear of Oregon mountain highways where FedEx tows triples.

I think the texting, messaging may be a big part of this accident. Please don't drive and use aRead More electronic device. Profesional or a 17 year old girl driving dads truck. Its very scary. I see it all the time. She has it planted on the windshield in her view next to the steering wheel. peace.

I was at rock & roll Ralphs on Sunset and didn't feel a thing. Came home and heard we had anRead More earthquake.

USGS's Did You Feel It shows a bunch more counties where this was felt than the seven listed in thisRead More article. Add Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Imperial, and Inyo.

Just as researchers are starting to link earthquakes with fracking in Texas and surrounding states,Read More Southern California has four earthquakes in a month. Our city officials need to ban this needless, dangerous and largely unregulated business.

When immigration laws become nothing more than ink on paper, eventually relatives of the cartelRead More members outnumber those of us who made the laws. It's over, California is host to the most "sanctuary" cities of any state and has now become the first sanctuary state of record. Who do you expect will live here?
Charlie McPoyle March 21, 2014 at 03:11 pm
California is notorious for gang related crime. I have family that live in the LA area and also inRead More the Bay Area. The crime there is mostly gang related. http://www.hardycriminallaw.ca/en/

Carl, the quote of mine that you posted has to do with all people who have crossed the borderRead More illegally and not the parents of these kids. However, I do think that there is a good chance that the parents of these kids are illegal.
Marge R. Hesse March 20, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Legal or not legal is not in question. They are very bad parents.

A physically abusive father and husband and some are concerned with citizenship? I think that you'reRead More missing the point here. Those that automatically assume undocumented when the surnames are Hispanic might have to rethink later this month when the Hispanic percentage in California surpasses the non-Hispanic white population.

How does leaving the children with their grandmother constitute "protective custody" whenRead More the abusive parent knows the address of his mother/mother-in-law? This is yet another example of the incompetence of the social welfare system in Los Angeles! We need and deserve accountability. Moreover, the children deserve better than this!

Along those lines, what about the LAPD and LASD that look the other way at bars and restaurants theyRead More frequent who knowlingly over-serve and then look that other way; especially on Wednesday, Friday's and Sunday Brunch days in Calabasas, Woodland Hills Solution: Let those restaurant know your renewed new policy is "you over-serve, they will be arrested quickly likely in close proximity to your restaurant and prosecuted." Yes change your look the other way attitude because you get those free meals for walking through. "And if you knowingly over-serve we will forward you the restaurant and bars to the District Attorney or City Attorney to enforce the law on the books about your establishments joint liability" Maybe then these wrong way head on collisions and continuing stories of drunk drivers and DUI arrests will slow down. Yes LAPSD and LASD you need to participate for that to happen; DUI checkpoints are a show, do the job before those checkpoints

This is like the parking lot fee paid to park your car. The ticket says, "not liable forRead More damage" but because you paid a fee they are liable.

I would like to know just what area in Moorpark all these victims live, are they close together, orRead More other parts of Moorpark? Did they all attend the same school?

If the source was in their homes, then it probably would have affected others in the home. BeingRead More that they all attended the same school, the source is most likely there. Then, did they all attend the same class rooms and classes at the same time?
