I opened up my paper on Jan. 10 to find a picture of Uma Thurman in Today's Newsmakers. This is the second time you've published this picture in the paper. She has a dress on, it's a see-through dress and you can see her breasts. It was disgusting the first time I saw it, and I thought, I can't believe this paper is printing this. And now, you have printed the exact same picture again as a follow-up regarding her stalking case. I think it would be wise if you would find a better picture to put in there that does not show her breasts. You never know who will pick up a newspaper. I'm sure a lot of children or young adults see this and that's what's wrong with our society today. The wrong people are seeing the wrong stuff.

I am a senior citizen and I'm looking for a two or three bedroom home out in the country. I live in a small one bedroom trailer, and I'd like to have my family over for holidays and simply can't the way I'm set up. You can call me 471-0737. I'd appreciate any house out in the country. I can do a little work.

The caller complaining about Dell hit the nail on the head. Dell has one of the worst customer service departments I've ever seen or read about. Gateway, Compaq, Hewlitt-Packard, et al are no better. My suggestion for easy, no hassle technical support - http://www.Protonic.com. They offer free signup and can answer almost any question via email within a few hours. The service is free, and they offer step-by-step directions on how to fix problems. If you don't have a computer and are looking to buy, I would suggest considering having someone build one for you if you can't build one for yourself. It allows you to cater your system to your specific needs, and you can really save money. I recently spent $1,200 building a computer for gaming and some other high end stuff. Now, I have a top of the line computer worth around $5,000 to $6.000. There are tons of sites out there dedicated to helping you accomplish the task. Buying the pieces and assembling yourself can really save you money. Do a little research. Scour the web. The Internet is your friend! The best prices for computer parts can be found on NewEgg.com and TigerDirect.com. Dell seems like it may be a good deal, but with their shoddy customer service being outsourced to India coupled with their refurbished and subpar parts, you're only buying headaches.

We heard on the news that all these law officials are getting in trouble. I thought they were supposed to be setting a good example for us. Furthermore, they arrest people for drinking and driving and they have them where they have been drinking and driving. They're not setting very good examples.

Like the story about Hannah Montana - unfortunately, she is fake. Watch this video. At about 2 minutes, 14 seconds, you will see her duck into a back door and a double spring out and begin singing and dancing. It would be reasonable to assume that she lip-syncs if she would do this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NpCo-gX_... or http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,3219... I know that if I paid a grand to see a concert like hers and saw this footage, I'd be ticked! "I didn't want to pay to see her body double..."
