I agree with Bob- I wouldn't want that kind of an escort-can you say you don't want them to do it? Iris- just because someone has a differing opinion is not cause for your overreaction

It sounds like you were dismissed from reality a long time ago

I'm with Iris on this one. Had it been a one time ignorant comment or difference of opinion, I think it would have been brushed off. The fact of the matter is, everything that comes from this cumbers guy is insulting, unintelligent, and usually has nothing to do with the article. Like I've said before, it's a lot easier to run your mouth hiding behind a keyboard than to man up and take responsibility for your words and actions. In other news, welcome home Matt. Job well done, you deserve a hero's welcome.

Sepp - this is done only by request and at the invitation of the family.

son of a son of a cumbers- I hope one day when you need help from someone, they go and say bend over so I can put my foot up your ass.
