What?!?!?

Quoted from the article...."I'm not a drug dealer; I just sell some to support my own habit."

Not what you'd call the sharpest knife in the kitchen....

Re: Federal Funding

Unlike the interstate system, Maine Turnpike Authority receives no federal or state funds. It relies solely on the tolls that are collected for it's funding.

Re: An Idiot for governor?

The governor isn't the one who tried to dry out fireworks with a blowtorch.

Re: Cyber Bullying

Note to the victims of cyber bullying; the solution is rather simple; don't use social networking sites, and the problem is solved. There's a lot more to life than posting comments on Facebook, Twitter, Skype, etc.

Hopefully, he'll receive an appropriate, long term jail sentence for the crimes he's been found guilty of. Sympathies to the families of the victims.

Shortly before his death, Bangor reverend met with man he was ac

The following is copied from another online news source. That being said, why is Robert Carlson still being referred to as a "Reverend?"

One of Carlson’s claims was that he completed graduate studies at the New York Theological Seminary. The seminary’s president, Dale Irvin, said that there are no records that a Robert T. Carlson took courses, much less graduated from the well-known seminary or its affiliates.

In a 1983 story in the Bangor Daily News, Carlson said he received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Maryland.

Officials with the University of Maryland said they have no record of a Robert T. Carlson graduating from any of the school’s affiliated campuses. He did take courses at the University of Maryland’s University College in the 1960s, but did not earn a degree, according to Chip Cassano, the school’s director of public relations.

Carlson claimed in that same 1983 story that he received theological training at the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Cambridge, Mass., now known as the Episcopal Divinity School.

Officials at the Cambridge divinity school said they have no record that a Robert T. Carlson received a degree or was an alumnus.

Another line in Carlson’s biography indicated that he was a “fellow” for the Ecumenical Institute of Boston.

A volunteer there, Elsa Bengal, searched the records and mailing lists she had access to and never came across the name Robert T. Carlson. Bengal also said the term “fellow” did not show up anywhere in the Ecumenical Institute’s organizational structure over the years.

In Response to Judy O'Neil

The article has been updated since my original post at 5:46 P.M. It now states (where-as it didn't before) that he was shot by a Maine warden.

In response to Jaclyn Wilt

It does not say he was shot by the warden. Read the article again. The following is quoted from the article;

"The manner of death — whether it was accidental, suicidal or homicidal — is to be determined by the Medical Examiner’s Office."

"Hunters" shot in Casco, Oxford Identified

The headline appears to be incorrect. According to the article, only one of the two was hunting; the other was target practicing. Hope they both recover.
