    Tuesday Talkback

    A time to moan, a time to talk back.

    "Biggest Moan: All those people who blow past stop signs and speed in the early morning through our development to get to work while my third-grade daughter and I stand in the dark waiting for her bus at 6:50 a.m. Slow down Avon, Ohio! You are not the only one on the road!" - Avon

    You and your daughter need to stop standing in the road.

    "Payday lenders and pajama parties - what is a person to think? I stepped off the curb and saw honesty, ethics, and good judgment floating toward the sewer. I could not rescue them at the time, but I promised them I would keep informed and vote, so that one day they might be rescued." - Euclid

    WTF?  The personification and victimization of honesty, ethics and good judgment, and the tale of one Euclid resident's promise to keep informed and vote so that they might someday be rescued. Yikes.

    "This one's for the IRS: The FDIC bank account loss limit has been stagnant at $100,000, and the minimum amount that can be earned without being taxed has been $599, both for at least a decade or so. Yet the minimum 'red flag' cash transaction got dropped to $10,000 decades ago. You obviously want your cake and to eat it too." - no city

    WTF?  What is this guy trying to say?  The FDIC isn't part of the IRS, and the insurance on deposits up to $100,000 has been around a lot longer than "decade or so."  And how is this related to the "red flag" amount -- which wasn't "dropped" to $10,000, but established at $10,000 in 1970 by the Bank Secrecy Act -- and not the IRS.  And the 2007 tax tables will tax you a dollar if your taxable income is as little as between $5 and $15 -- well below this $599.  So who exactly wants to have their cake and eat it too, and how?

    I'll stop my rolling 25s through the stop signs on Washington

    How do pajama parties fit in? Did I miss something?

    I have no idea. Except that the moaner must not like them. I can't imagine combining payday loans with pajama parties. A payday lender will take the shirt off your back. Well, maybe that's why they're wearing their pjs. I dunno.

    Did someone spike the water supply?

    they found a wide variety of antibiotics and other poisons in the columbus water supply.

    maybe my father was right about the water...
