Photobomb? He's the subject of the photo. Read the article (or at least the caption!)

Botany, she may have improved certain aspects of Britain's economy but it was to the detriment and suffering of hundreds of thousands of people who lived in the UK at the time.
She single-handedly forced thousands of people out of their jobs and into poverty and started to systematically dismantle the options available to them at the same time. Labor unions aside, even.
She also really did a number in Scotland and Wales. It's actually and interesting read/research if you're ever up for it, but she was really not great for the UK - unless you were already exceedingly wealthy or needed grants for an already huge corporation in oil or steel.

Loonpt, you're living up to your name.
It adds insult to the injury and loss suffered in Boston (and everywhere else you mentioned in this rant) to support this kind of unhinged theory.
Our gov't and country aren't perfect. Far from it, but this is just waaay off base.

@loonpt - Whoa, whoa, whoa. The solution to a noise burden is to sell your home? No.
There's a huge difference between normal noise from parties and BBQs and repeated, nuisance noise and traffic. This complaint falls into the latter.
If this were a different story - let's say one about someone who couldn't AFFORD to move - then what would the advice be, then?
You're way off base.

I read this entire article twice and this is all I get when I read it: having a loaded gun while you hike around makes people do things that they wouldn't otherwise do. Hence, situations escalate to unstoppable and tragic consequences. Billy the Dog is a perfect example of this and frankly, I'm not too thrilled with the people who think hunting feral pigs is okay, either.
That said, there's legal and there's ethical and somehow there's a huge gap, here.

You may be correct from a generalized viewpoint of likely co-morbidities that this man may have suffered from with diabetes. But you're not *his* doctor and I think it's a bit irresponsible for any of us (medical training or otherwise) to comment on how he may have died; we simply don't know the circumstances and he may or may not have been in the kind of shape that he HAD to die that day.

This is really tragic. My heart goes out to Mr. Unzueta. It must be a horrible loss for him.

I guess if they spoke to her at 9:30 this morning, there could be more to the story, such as there's a strong suspicion she might do harm to herself.
A very sad story and I hope one that has a happy resolution!

@cmetzenberg - I think this is a valid point, but at the same time, the vast majority of our oil in CA is from Alaska, not overseas. The rest of the US, not so much. But we have specific laws that mean our oil is from AK.
It's complex, but if you google it, you'll be able to find the stats which might illuminate a lot of what Anderson is talking about in terms of our state. Again, the rest of the nation not so much.
I don't subscribe to the idea that our coastline needs to be ruined either, but a tiny bit of oil education goes a long way; I know, I was one of the great masses of uninformed until just a few years ago.

Equus seems to be the only one here who actually understood what the letter was talking about.
Sometimes I feel like people just want to read or see what they anticipate or desire, rather than what's really written. Either that or people have serious reading comprehension deficiencies.
(On a side note, I really love the irony of Equus's name considering how he/she is always kind of on top of the logic of a situation when so many others are usually....well, you know.)
