Jessica,
The very best of everything for you.  You are a very brave and courageous young lady.  I am retired after 30 years Army service and during that time I met many brave and courageous young men and women.  Your dedication to Duty, Honor and Country place you head and shoulders above the rest.  I sincerely hope you fully recover from your horrible wounds, both physical and mental, and go on with your dream to be a school teacher.  I would be proud to stand beside you in uniform, in any situation.  Gary Owen!

Need information about employee’s rights after being terminating, when incident (forgot to pay for 1-can of soda) happened a year ago, but they terminated the person a year later, plus bugging management about, when trying for a job transfer to a different city and them telling a person they cannot get there one year vacation paid out when they got terminated.
Just getting the runaround thru the Corp. Office. Hopefully someone out there can help me finding the laws/employee’s rights etc, etc, or even a handbook on this all..
Please help me!!

"instantET: The "Entertainment Tonight" TV."   TV show Entertainment Tonight launches a Windows widget; blogger comments; a trillion commenters take the opportunity to complain about how they don't like ET but can't find an email address for the show. And one Canadian voices some international relations gripes, hoping that ET can smooth over tensions.

Today there was a school shooting in Montreal, Quebec. Up here in Canada the radio and news are covering the event. So far 2 people have died. I’m writing on this board because CNN only had information on their website but they continue to ignore the incident. Not once did they mention it on tv.

I find this a disgrace and this is a prime example as to why some Canadians feel like Americans ignore us in critical times. Just last week Canadians were killed by friendly fire by Americans and we forgive you. It’s no one’s fault. But then something like this happens and it just makes us feel like you don’t care.

SO…this is a great opportunity for someone like ET to step up and show some class. Report on this issue and people who don’t normally watch ET will. It’ll show you have a lot more layers than just being a celebrity gossip show.

And if you don’t find that Important enough…here’s some gossip:

Ontario has a no-smoking indoors policy and it’s been made law now. SO far, everyone has been okay with it. Smokers just wait and smoke outside. HOwever, during the TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL this rule has been broken. And who broke it? None other than SEAN PENN.

It may seem like a silly rule to you but to me, a person who’s sister had cancer twice, I know how serious something like this is. THere’s an overwhelming amount of research saying that second hand smoke kills. Even a few exposures causes damage. So when I hear that SEAN PENN has broken the law (even for smoking) and more so, he’s not been charged, it makes me sick. i DON’T care if he’s a celebrity, rich or famous. He broke the law and should be charged.

I’m so sick and tired of people feeling ‘sorry’ for celebrities or treating them like gods. They’re not above the law.
