    At the supermarket, the barcode is telling the store inventory system that the product you are buying has reached the checkout stand and is being transferred out of inventory. In a sense, the barcode is a tool for tracking the location of something, whether it is a can of soup, or a freight car.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    i think you will find those are "ribs...for her pleasure"

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.
