The fact that there always seems to be several open handicap spots that are hardly ever used in front of most businesses makes me not really care to harass anybody for doing this.
Besides, maybe they have legitimate condition that while it may not warrant parking 20 feet closer and you may not notice them having any hindrance to getting into the store, they may have a legitimate need for it in larger parking lots.
I'm not saying this is never abused, but I think it is difficult to tell who is actually abusing it and secondarily it doesn't seem to really matter since there are always an excess of handicap spots. Now, if people were forging placards that would be a problem, but as for people using legitimate placards whose condition is no longer applicable or are using their relatives placard, meh, this is not ever going to be a "growing" problem, but a more constant steady problem that doesn't seem to affect whether handicap parking is available or not in most businesses that do not attract older folks in particular.

As I stated on Starshine's recent column 16 is not too young to drive and neither is 15 for learning. If the age were raised to 18 then you would just have a new contingent of 18 year olds learning to drive instead of 15 or 16. Many would not have any parental supervision because they would soon be heading off to college. Kids learn languages and other skills much better when they are younger, it is better to teach kids to drive when they are young because this will lead to a more highly skilled set of drivers in the long-run - logically we are ALWAYS going to have to deal with young people learning to drive no matter what age they start, better to start them younger. Not to mention you can get a job well before you are 18.

Ya I was going to put a [sic] after spit but sometimes that is an apt description as well.

"I hope that you know that that is a false flag surf spit."
That can be an apt description, at times.

Now, if you want a more far-fetched conspiracy theory, check this out...
The Syrian Government claims that journalist Mark Foley was executed over a year ago and they sent the proof of that to the UN at that time..
The video that was released used camera trickery and fake post production techniques, as I already mentioned the video didn't even show the execution, instead it faded to black.
I would presume it was prepared as part of a propaganda campaign, we know that there was a bombing campaign against Syria that followed all of these violent episodes by the ISIS that supposedly took place.
