I drive frequently to San Diego, and with no rest areas when you have to go ... you go on the side of the freeway. — Can’t Hold It, El Centro This question is great, possibly destined to be a classic.

Why does the Pope wear red shoes? I saw Pope Benedict wearing them, but can't remember seeing Pope John Paul II wearing them. What about the new pope? - Papal Watcher, Imperial County The short answer is, the red papal shoes are meant “to honor the martyrs of the Church, people who have given their life for the faith,” said Michael Lovette-Coyler, assistant vice president of mission and ministry of University of San Diego. The color red, of course, would represent the blood of the martyrs.

On two occasions in the past few months, I have witnessed customers paying for beer at a local market. The first occasion was a gentleman in his early 20s who paid for a couple of miscellaneous food items and a 12-pack with an EBT card meant for food assistance. The second occasion was last Sunday when a young woman paid for miscellaneous food items and a three-pack of 16-ounce cans of beer. This means, we, the taxpayers who get up every morning to go to work, are paying for beer for these individuals who receive food assistance.

And now, 25 years later, MTV is having the kind of effect on a generation that it did when it first aired ? kind of.

Several psychiatrists have said that Scott Peterson is a psychopath. A psychopath is NOT a psycho. He is not insane. He is conscienceless. At one time the psychopath was called a "moral degenerate. " Later he was renamed a "psychopath" and "sociopath. " Sociopath is the term I prefer to use.
