Shame on that Secret Service Agent who refused to pay his prostitute. It is a legal profession in their country (Colombia) and it leaves him no more than a thief! Doesn’t anyone know how to act in other countries anymore?

My gripe is neighbors who take no pride in their homes or their yards: junk cars, some packed with more junk, used tires, trash, useless stuff they feel they may need someday scatted about. Some of us work very hard to make our homes look nice, yet when we look out our windows all we see is filth. . . . You’re bringing me down, not to mention what you’re doing to my property value. Clean up your act.
