    it disgusts me this mourning of a loss of a sportstar & not the loss of Reeva Steenkamp – if he wasn't famous – she'd just be another one of the 50 murders per day in South Africa ....really the media has lost a chance to highlight femicide & do something for good !

Welcome to Georgetown , Kentucky home of the Toyota camry plant and jobs out of our ears. If you don't find a job in 2 weeks here ,,its because you didn't look. It's called a Boom Town,, and Chicago is just a Big City Cesspoool of Criminals who would slap you silly across the face with a pistol if you offered them AN HONESt JOB. The Scott County Jail here is 357.56 miles from the Chicago Police Station. MAPQUEST. who are you to tell us we don't know how to shoot?? Generation after Generation after Generation we are taught to be strong and have enough good sense to realize calling 911 is more times than not the FINAL MISTAKE when facing a threat against your life. Its all too obvious. I'll 2nd Larry Pratts comment . "You are from another Planet Mr Morgan". hey now you have 19 whole comments,,,,,,, ha ha ha ha ha ha NRA!

    Although some sources suggest that bathing declined following the collapse of the Roman Empire, this is not completely accurate. It was actually the Middle Ages that saw the beginning of soap production, proof that bathing was definitely not uncommon. It was only after the Renaissance that bathing declined; water was feared as a carrier of disease, and thus sweat baths and heavy perfumes were preferred.':';
