|1 week 5 days ago||It's a legal thing||
Employees of governmental institutions have extra due process protections that employees of private organizations do not. Until that due process occurs, the public body can only suspend with pay or else face a lawsuit that will win based on legal precedent.
I'm a publicly-elected official in my town and learned about this the hard way. It's very frustrating. People get angry because there isn't immediate termination or suspension without pay at the very least.

As a male in his sixth decade on this planet who rode the bus in middle school I cannot believe I've never heard these names before.

I'll take advantage of it to congratulate everyone again!

Congrats to father and son!
And congrats to everyone else admitted today!
|26 weeks 3 days ago||I played from grade 4 through||
I played from grade 4 through high school. I was the captain of one of the worst high school teams ever to take the field.
I'm glad I played, but I basically remember being beaten up all the time. I was sore from mid-August through early November. In a blocking drill I once got hit so hard I saw stars for a few minutes. But I got right back in line. Man, how times have changed.

Did you hear about the time the guy flunked out of Michigan and transferred to MSU? The average GPA of both student bodies went up.

Never read any of the books or saw any of the movies.
|48 weeks 4 days ago||You beat me to it||
"The Little Match Girl" was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the title of this thread.
|49 weeks 5 days ago||Agree on the baseball||
I've told friends for years that winter is over for me when I first hear "pitchers and catchers report."

Announcer: I've just been handed a special message from the national pancake institute."
[after opening the envelop he reads the enclosed note]: "Waffles suck."

Happy MLK day to non-violent agents of change everywhere.

In addition to all the great advice offered by others on this thread:
Now is the time that life insurance and having a trust/will become really important.

He's from southwest Michigan and is a huge Michigan fan.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Agree completely||
The concept is mindblowing. Other aspects are hot and cold.
After binge-watching the series I purchased the book to see how it differed. It differed a lot, but it was similar in that it didn't tie off any loose ends at the conclusion. PKD is a really good writer of alternate reality stuff, but I definitely wanted more at the end of the book.

I spent it curled up in the fetal position.
Glad we're back.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Kalamazoo approves of Derek Jeter||
By far the most famous person ever from here.
And his foundation is really active here.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||I appreciate Adam's MGoQuestions||
I appreciate Adam asking nuts and bolts questions about schemes and responsibilities. Coaches don't usually get these types of questions. Coach Z didn't give much of an answer in this press conference, but I recall Coach Harbaugh gave a more detailed answer when asked about O line blocking earlier this week. Refreshing stuff.

I couldn't believe Addidas was willing to shred its contract with Michigan because they were so fed up with the guy. Unbelievable.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Never had a grandpa like that||
But I had an uncle who was exactly like that. He taught us how to play poker, too. Every 12 year old boy needs to have an uncle/grandpa like that.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Mine got delivered 15 minutes ago||
My productivity will be shot for the next few days. But with the opener just a few days away I wouldn't have been too productive anyway.

The band leaves Revelli about an hour before kickoff. When I follow them to the stadium I'm always in my seat before they take the field.
I highly recommend doing this.

Q: What did the cannibal do after he ate his girlfriend?
A: He dumped her.

The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange is a fun place.

Taking my dad, too. And it happens to be his birthday.
It's going to be a great day!
|1 year 50 weeks ago||A slightly different subject...||
But doesn't China only have one time zone?
How'd you like to live in western China and have the sun rise at 10? That's crazy.
But back on topic, I'm a DST lover. Would keep it all year.

The C word crosses a line that the F word doesn't, for some reason.
But I am very amused by how much those guys are reviled. They do appear to be complete Brandon-esque clowns.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||That's a great story||
She obviously hadn't heard about your $3M inheritance yet.
Was there anything specific that got her to change her mind about you or did you just wear her down?
Oh, and happy Friday Posbang everyone!

Does the bottle on the counter next to the OSU fan really say "syphilis medication?"
Funny, funny stuff.

I wonder if Dean Wormer will put these guys on double secret probation.
