Science is limited, but it is what we have.

My client was not in town the day of the murder.

The victim was shot, but this good man was not the...

Re: Boat Bikes II

I have an ejoe. It is an electric assist, folding frame and pedals. The seat and handlebars are quick release. It comes with a rack on back.

Re: Ethics of negotiation

Re: Ethics of negotiation

I attempted to buy a boat. My offer was what I could afford.
