      Oh, so sorry N. I made a mistake. A good thing you are here and setting me straight. Do you typically go around online posting corrections for grammar and spelling mistakes as well. Your a credit to your country. Basically you have nothing to offer to the conversation.

    I'm sorry? Why was the lady not charged? Was she not in the car in which the stolen property was found? Was she being held against her will? Doubtful. This smacks of a double standard by the RNC.
