    Shame on CNN: CNN is the only news channel that schedules airtime to discuss race and the Black Community.
    As long as we continue to see color, we will continue to be divided by it.

    This in response to credit card profiling.
    I have one card that has changed hands during our financial crisis. It has ended up belonging to CHASE. I had gotten my credit limit up to $6000 and I was sent a letter telling me they were cutting my limit down half. I had not exceeded my limit or had been late. Now I once again receive another letter a little over a year later telling me that due to my not using all of my available credit, CHASE was again adjusting my credit line down. This time to $500 to closer match my use! I EARNED all that credit, never abused it and have always paid DESPITE the high % on it. Since I try to pay off my card amount each month I'm not giving them any interest so they are cutting my credit line down is how I read between the lines! And as a note in my letter they inform me that if I have recently used credit over the new set amount, I have 45 days to get it paid or I will receive an APR INCREASE! What a bunch of crooks!

    Too bad Kevorkian comes off like a nut. Yet, many people say, "I hope Kevorkian is still around if and when I ever need him." Most likely, decades from now physician assisted suicide will be common (with safeguards and guidelines in place, of course.) He may seem like a nut now, but he won't seem so in the not too distant future. As old religious beliefs lose their hold, modern people will more and more demand control over their life AND death.

    Perhaps he IS nutty because he's TOO anxious to to perform this "service". but many very rational people believe that this "service" is needed, with adequate guidelines and laws.

    Also, everyday this service DOES get performed by doctors everywhere when they give very high doses of painkillers to the terminally ill. But sometimes these high doses are given over a long period of time. If I were in that situation, I would prefer my dying process NOT be so drawn out.
