If the name "Cultural Care" doesn't ring any bells, it should.  They're the same nice people who placed Louise Woodward with the Eappens and got their baby Matthew murdered.  They were well on their way to a repeat, but for the bad publicity they got on TV.

Dear Campaign for Southern Equality: the worst defense is a bad offense. Unless, of course, your idea of "Southern equality" is that if the rest of the South has a marriage amendment, NC should, too.

While everyone else is confident that the individual mandate will be struck down, I remain cautiously pessimistic it will not be. In fact, unless Wickard v. Filburn is reversed or the preexisting condition coverage requirement is struck down on some other basis, I'm not even convinced the individual mandate should be struck down. To the extent Congress may require health insurers cover preexisting conditions, simultaneously requiring healthy individuals to participate is critical to that scheme. Certainly a more straighforward application of the commerce clause (or, at a bare minimum, the necessary and proper clause) than telling a farmer how much wheat he can grow for himself and his family and forcing him to buy the rest through interstate commerce. On the other hand, if the court finally does rid us of that dreadful precedent, we will have seen a huge victory for federalism and the 10th Amendment, with implications reaching far beyond health care per se.

All this assumes, of course, that the Supremes won't go back even further and exhume the antiquated view that insurance isn't commerce. In that case, all bets would be off.

This one took me by surprise. How does California's new DREAM Act differ from the one that only recently wound its way through the courts?

My review of A-1 Towing was not kind, but in fairness, much of the responsibility lies with Brookdale's managing company, JBG, not the individual towing company doing their bidding. If JBG told these trolls to clean up their act and start only towing vehicles that appear to be legitimately trespassing, they would. Maintenance generally is terrible, my heating unit has gone out four times in less than two months that I've been here, the place has become overrun with cockroaches, and just about everything about the unit that could have been broken upon move-in, was. I am giving this place two stars instead of one, as maintenance has been pretty good about fixing most of the things that were broken, albeit after the fact rather than doing proper maintenance all along. Too, JBG was helpful in getting A-1's unfair and illegal towing charge waived, which A-1 alone was unwilling to consider. Finally, the place is a relative bargain for the DC area, and with decent amenities including a shuttle to the Metro. So if you're willing to put up with a bit of crap to get a better deal on an apartment, this may be the place for you. If you're not, it's not. Last and least, has anyone noticed that all three favorable reviews are from Chesapeake, and only one appears to be written by a native English speaker? Things that make you go hmmm.

These scumbags towed my car without justification, and expect to be financially rewarded for it. First they told me they had towed it because it displayed an expired vehicle inspection sticker. I patiently explained that this was impossible, as I had just had it inspected last month. Then I get put on hold, and am now told I was towed because I had reregistered my car in this state shortly after moving here. Seriously - they consider that a valid reason for towing your car, expect to be paid for the privilege.
