..because they are Liberal Democratic Socialist, anti American and should be expelled to their Muslim 3rd. World origin.

Obituary for John Bruce Lindeman

I wish I could post a recount of his sense of humor regarding my experience with a final exam during his real estate finance course. It is just a few sentences but apparently was rejected.

Obituary for John Bruce Lindeman

Well, I'm sad to her this news. I liked him.

Several years ago, I received an "A" in his real estate finance class. I remember him giving a final exam and everyone was left on the "honor" system after he left the room. It was an essay exam and everyone was left with the instruction to complete and hand in when completed. Well, everyone in the room was up and scurrying around comparing answers with everyone else . . .and I mean every one else in the room. Linderman had always allowed unmonitored completion of exams.

The question (and I wish I had a copy) was something like, "There's a seven story building in downtown Little Rock (reminded me of the old Fone's Hardware building). It, among other things as outlined, is being used to store garbage on the second floor. Corporate offices were on the first floor. Yada, yada, yada" The whole essay question took almost an entire single space typed page to present.

As I read this question, I kept thinking how absurd this question was. I looked around and there were people scurrying around to talk to other test-takers, comparing answers, whatever, some still writing their second, third or fourth page of answers.

Well, I already had an "A" earned for the course (actually didn't need to take the final), so I got to thinking . . .I simply wrote my name on a blank sheet of paper and handed in my answer, which was a single sentence, "Not a damn thing." and handed in my answer. I spoke with him a week or two later and that was the only correct answer submitted. ;-)

Grocery chain Trader Joe's set to build in west Little Rock; $1M+ permit OK'd

Costco would be a welcome opening. My friends in Ft. Worth shop there often, and there are very good deals.
.
. . .and Trader Joe's is NOT the "second coming of Christ".

Arkansan's feral hog post in gun debate takes off

Yet again. . .what an idiot you are.
.
Let me put it this way . . .these animals are vermin . . .just need to be exterminated . . .regardless of how.
.
This is becoming pointless to continue as a debate. It's difficult to prevail in such an argument with idiots.

Arkansan's feral hog post in gun debate takes off

MOREBEER: Well, it is apparent that now when I try to repost "What a clueless idiot you are", that some "editor" is intervening; regardless, let me continue:
I don't care about any suffering that these hogs might incur, because they are just vermin . . .like rats. I don't care how often they are gut-shot and left to die - just get to the next "eventual" fatal shot before they run off. I don't care if they are left squeling like a "stuck hog".
