Ionic Breeze is worthless, Sharper Image sued for millions

Anyone else miss the news that the Ionic Breeze and all these ionic air purifiers are completely worthless and actually harmful?

In 2003 Consumer Reports did a review of a Ionic Breeze calling it "ineffective". Sharper Image sued, but a court dismissed the suit because Sharper Image had not proven the findings were false. Sharper Image was ordered to pay over half a million dollars in legal expenses to Consumer Reports.

In 2007 Sharper Image was sued again, having to pay 1.8 million in legal fees in a class action lawsuit by everyone that bought a Ionic Breeze since 1999. Each of the 3.2 million customers only got a $19 credit though.

So if you're thinking about buying a Ionic Breeze don't, they suck.

Crazy Kindergarden teacher allows students to "vote off" mentally disabled boy

This is simply unbelievable. After each classmate was allowed to
say what they didn't like about Barton's 5-year-old son, Alex, his
Morningside Elementary teacher Wendy Portillo said they were going to
take a vote. By a 14 to 2 margin, the students voted Alex — who is in
the process of being diagnosed with autism — out of the class.
The other students said he was "disgusting" and "annoying". Alex left the classroom and spent the rest of the day in the nurse's office. "He was incredibly upset," Barton said. "The only friend he has ever made in his life was forced to do this."

Please email or write the school and tell them what you think of this crazy teacher:

Phone: (772) 429-3600

The teacher: Wendy Portillo

first page of my blog

I just created my blog today and I don't have much to blog about except that I'm a little miffed that I couldn't find a decent blog name. Allthingsblogworthy was not my first pick. I wanted something easier to type. When my first picks weren't available I just started typing all kinds of random names in there trying to find one available. When I typed in allthingsblogworthy it didn't even tell me it was available, it just assigned it. I wonder if that's what happened to all the other names I tried? I wonder if someone was like "crap! I need a blog name and all the good ones are taken! Let me try this...." and suddenly they're stuck with a blog name they didn't want.

oh well... i suppose allthingsblogworthy is good enough. Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue but it'll be hard to misspell. At least I don't have any '4's that could be "four" or 'for' or something like that or misspellings like "pur" instead of "pure".

I'll stop ranting, maybe tomorrow I'll post some real content.
