I just read from ESPN that Colin Kaepernick of the SF 49ers is now the most disliked player in the NFL. Seriously America, grow up. He is bringing the discussion of police shootings & minorities to the very forefront without showboating or bloviating. He is simply taking a knee during our national anthem before a game we watch on TV once a week. Dislike him for his gameplay but don't dislike him because he cares about what is happening in our society.

I am a US Navy veteran and I fully support his form of protest.

Dammit Katie Ledecky, could you at least try to be a little more awesome. 😉

This is the perfect kind of gesture and story we all need to hear about in this country.

+Sergey Abaev, I don't want to start a flame war here but cheating is cheating. Those who get caught deserve all the negativity that goes along with it. If someone doesn't speak up, no matter where they are from, then nothing gets done. If you are an athlete and need drugs to help you compete, perhaps you are not as good as you think you are and should step away. Any person who speaks up is brave and has nothing to do with culture.

Got my license renewed today. As I was waiting in line with all the other poor souls having time taken off their lives, I noticed you can have "veteran" put on your DL now (after you are verified of course). I thought this was not a bad idea, then I noticed it would cost me $8. #thanksbutnothanks  

So, we veterans, whether at a time of peace or war, called in to action at the convenience of our leaders at home or abroad, giving up our time away from loved ones, friends, family and jobs, sacrificing many things even lives in some cases and we are able provide the proof we did this by keeping one document you require. And you still want $8? I notice the fact that putting the pink dot for "donor" on your DL is free and a small $2 donation is asked for right below in the form. I'd donate $10 to have veteran put on my DL but like many things in this state, California has it wrong, again.

Pay the $8 and donate $2 directly to a veteran that needs $2.

If it was a $10 donation to a veterans fund how much of the money do you think makes it to the fund?

$0.13 of each dollar is the average. The donation collector takes in the other $0.87.

You'd still be giving DMV ~$8.70.

So, pay $8, save $0.70, add that $0.70 to your $2 and donate it.

Just when I think people cannot be any worse....I look through news and find this. There has to be a special kind of hell for this behavior.

There are few professional athletes who would make me tune in to their game on a random night. Tim Duncan and the Spurs is one of them. Although I'd root for them, unless they were playing the Celtics, I would not call myself a Spurs fan. I'd watch not because I was waiting for a "WOW" moment but because as a bit of a basketball purist, I knew I'd be watching quality basketball with Tim Duncan on the court. From Wake to San Antonio, congrats on a great, HoF career!

Dear +BlackBerry ,

Did you bother to think that the new security feature on your phones make them useless when former co-workers could care less about giving me their BB ID and password before they leave the company? I'm left with a perfectly good brick now. Pay you $35 for customer service to help me brick the phone? No thanks. Send me off to your kb articles, wonderful.

I simply want to wipe the old BB ID account off so another co-worker can use this phone. I need the password to the ID I don't know to wipe the phone. Then I need the same unknown password or the security "feature" will lock the phone following the recommended wipe. So, while the feature prevents people from stealing a device they will not steal anyway, I will just pile up Blackberry phones on my desk.

Thanks for nothing.

By the way, another reason for a corporate master control is so that you can remotely wipe a phone that gets stolen or lost with confidential corporate data on it.

I love this, it is how I was raised and I have never believed in "just showing up" and expect to be rewarded. I'm not sure when this mindset was adjusted but it is one that is bothersome.

Very good food and pleasant service. More chips n salsa? No problem. Customize your order? Yes! Ate lunch with co-workers here recently and I had the chile colorado burrito with light amount of rice. It was delicious and prepared as I asked. Prices are very reasonable which will keep us coming back.

Good server staff but I was in there before the noon time rush. I'm sure they do fine regardless. I got the BBQ pulled pork which was good but it was not as good I was expecting based on the reviews of this place. Perhaps I should try the tri-tip next time.

Was there opening night and it was hopping with people as expected. Plenty of choices to make the burrito your own. One thing that sets Freebird's apart from any other burrito place I have been to is one person begins and finishes your order. Instead of the typical assembly line burrito, it is you and one burrito creator discussing what you want on your delicious creation every step of the way. Good service, excellent tasting food and now I will need to run 2 more days a week with this place being local now.

This place has been good every time I go. I do enjoy the microbrews. One menu addition will make myself, my friends et al go more often: sweet potato fries. Add them already, please. Even fast food joints offer them now.
