Dan Corner of Merchant Street and Clover Street, Newark, 30+ years ago. That location had so many reincarnations over so many years, I doubt if I knew it's name even at the time that that incident occured.

The police can't protect us from this sort of crap. Only we can protect ourselves, hence the 2nd amendment. "The police can't stop an intruder, mugger, or stalker from hurting you. They can pursue him only after he has hurt or killed you. Protecting yourself from harm is your responsibility, and you are far less likely to be hurt in a neighborhood of gun owners than in one of disarmed citizens – even if you don't own a gun yourself". – Harry Browne

wohopeful Englert writes "Hey folks... when somebody can figure out what a "denison of repute " is , and can point one of these suckers out for me , I'd love to see what one of these bad boys looks like ". Englert also chastised Leigh - Ann Zaolino for misspelling the word "mere " This is what Englert wrote yesterday ; " Purely and simply, most people have been ingonrong what has to say and giving him a wide berth for years " " ingonrong what has to say " ?? AGAIN, we see the failure of the Public Schools to properly educate people ..what's an ingonrong, a marsupial ?

Mr. Prignano clearly has some difficulty in recognizing the difference between typographical errors and spelling error and, certainly, a lack of cohesive thought. Analagous to this would be his inability to understand the difference between human muscle tissue (which he should have some familiarity with a power-lifter/former gym owner) and brain matter, which he is clearly far less familiar with. The former can (almost always, except for disease or other impairment) be subjected to exercise and resistance that (assuming the body is properly nourished) will result in increased muscle mass and strength. The latter will have an innate and primarily genetically inbred limit to its capacity and ability to absorb and/or master information and skills...and that will vary widely among people, in general, and school students, in particular. Not everyone will achieve all the educational goals we'd hope or like them to...and that they don't is not a failure of public education. One would think a father who has raised an autistic child would be fully aware of that indisputable fact.
