Re: Who remembers Wayman Tisdale?

Many Indiana Pacers fans remember him fondly. Toby Keith's tribute at his funeral was heart-rending and beautiful.

BTW, I wear pink to work every Thursday to honor a friend who twice survived breast cancer. For my birthday last Thursday, everyone wore pink. It was beautiful.

Re: At least 5 dead in West Texas shooting after traffic stop

A handgun permit is issued by the county that you live in. If you live in Chicago and can't get a permit there, you can't just go to a gun store across the border and buy a handgun.
