    DJ Williams of the Broncos got a DUI. He'll have to spend 30 days at home on house arrest BUT not until the season is over. That's freakin BULL!!! He also has to do community service but the fact that his sentence has been postponed is totally ridiculous! If it happened to u or me & we told the judge "hey judge I gotta work. Can u postpone it until I retire or at least wait until I have some vacation time.

    Yup, same thing with Lindsay Lohan.
    And wasn't Paris Hilton busted with coke?
    And she did like 2 days in the pen.

    I hate Lindsay Lohan.
    She's a dispicible human being, and the horrific thing is the Hollyweird Media has made her still an idol, a role model, to millions of dumb, naive, young girls. As they did with Madonna starting in the 80's.

    Double standards are a fact of life. They only work when one is on the ruling political side or if one has enough cash to tip the scales in ones favor. Many times right or wrong is irrelevant, it comes down to power, money, or both. True justice anywhere is a myth. The courts, the workplace, organizations, schools, the military, and especially politics are just a few examples. Wars have been waged because of double standards (ex: The Haves vs The Havenots).

    This genuinely surprises me :(. I always thought because of your situation regarding private health insurance stuff like this didn`t happen. The reason I say this is my first wife died of ovarian cancer 11 years ago. The fatality rate in the U.K. is extremely high at 86%. Most don`t know until its too late. In the U.S. however, the fatality rate is considerably lower because of access to testing. Sorry about your Dad. My Dad died because of asbestosis which again is not seen until its too late because of lack of testing in the U.K.
