    How much are phone carriers to blame for teen texting? My phone carrier offers free texts or it is cheaper to text than to place a call.

    I agree with Mayor Bloomberg that it would be a good move to close the 'loophole' concerning gun sales without background checks at gun shows. Why bother to have checks at all, if they can be easily evaded, in favor of criminal elements and detrimental to the welfare and security of society? Preventing unchecked gun sales would at least make it harder for criminals to procure weapons, which might be used for illicit and deadly purposes. Fight on, Mayor Bloomberg!

    Dear CNN,

    I believe that Universal Healthcare can be the key to turning this economy around. I dont believe the way that they are doing it now is the pragmatic approach to solving the issue. I do not believe in the employer based funding method to pay for the program. I dont se any productive outcome from creating a whole new program when we have medicare to use as a platform. Eliminate the age requirement in Medicare and fund it through a National Sales Tax(Consumption Tax). It is deficit neutral to the budget. It relieves the employer from a burden for which he divises methods to avoid providing healthcare such as having part time employees or outsourcing to another country. It would make business more competitive with business outside the country giving employers the incentive to employ in this country. Greater employment will support Social Security and Medicare. We could double the FICA deductions as well. 40% of the people in this country who have income do not pay income tax but they do pay sales tax. Drug dealers, prostitutes, illegal aliens and people on commission who under report their income would be paying for healthcare through a sales tax. This is simple and pragmatic.

    Is this a "rift" volcano?
    If so, how long is the "rift"?
    What is the chemistry and mineralogy of this volcano?
