OK, aren't there laws on the books preventing gender-based pay discrimination? If not, why aren't these laws being passed? If they ARE on the books, why aren't they being enforced, and who are the businesses that are doing the discriminating?

No judgement calls here, nor am I taking sides, I'm just curious. Any answers?

Why can't they leave them alone? Let them celebrate the happy occasion in peace.

As for the matter at hand, how many generations of chain-of-command down the food tree was Morua from Capps? In other words, perhaps it was the responsibility of someone below her to vet (sp?) Morua's past--assuming there was a legal precedent for them to do so.

As for BlanchSweet's comments I agree 100%. I too had heard that Walter Capps' death was the aftereffect of the accident where he was hit by the drunk driver, and I heard this a number of years ago.

Once again, the main issue is overlooked.

Mexico is a dystopia of corruption and poverty, and nothing is being done to address that.

Is it possible that people would level charges against an innocent person just so that they could make money?

On Concerns Raised over Carpinteria Pastor's Past

For those who don't know me: I have never voted for Capps, and most likely never will. I also am a rabidly vocal opponent of drunk/buzzed driving, and have never been a drinker. Having said that, I think that going after Capps is wrong.

The problem lies with Morua's choice to not have a designated driver before he chose to get drunk. The "you're not cool if you don't drink" mentality of Santa Barbara is also a huge factor. And if it is simply a case of the family needed to pay her medical costs, perhaps the alcohol retailers who run their ads on this website and the wineries that cater to the elite can shore up some $$$ and take the burden off the family. Perhaps that place where he was the served him alcohol before he got in his vehicle should pay for their bills.

Where was he drinking just before he got in his vehicle? Nick?...Matt...Marianne?...

@Justice: You are asking a question I've asked myself: Is Loon crazy, or just a troll trying to offend us?

Which drunkard is that Lawdy?

As for the Botany/Loonpt debate, I side with Botany. There is no evidence Dies did anything to contribute to her death, whereas Kreis' intoxication may or may not have played into her hitting the Mazda.

There are situations even Mario Andretti couldn't escape during his driving days.

Did any of you see KEYT News as of late last night? From what I gather, they are going after Capps now. Not that I necessarily agree with that, but I'm just reporting it.
