Best scam in the world. Anyone that doesn't go to community college on the cheap for two years is crazy. The way college is pushed is ridiculous. We are setting kids up to fail for the rest of their lives.

Interesting story - you'd think this might get solved someday by DNA.

Almost 35 years ago, she let a stranger hold her newborn. It has haunted her ever since.

This always stuck with me -- love how passionate people are about such a common item.

Here is a relatively new and nauseating read. It's a work of pure fiction, hope you don't enjoy.

Winning the Lottery isn’t always gaining money, sometimes it’s finding peace of mind and a purpose. The older I get, the more I understand those stories.

You're so right Wags. I'm not even fractionally as wealthy as I once dreamed but am happier than I thought I would be. I can pay the bills, pretty much do what I want within limits and spend all the time on projects and grandkids I want. Really you can't ask for much more from life.
