Fruit And Vegetable Shortages by Colin Baker (1)
"Right on, Colin! I can't speak for the UK, but the US sure keeps food prices artificially low. But, our prices are rising due to corporations buying up farmers and their land. As the old saying goes, one reaps what they sow." -- Joseph Albrecht, Kings Park, NY, United States.


They Call Me Mellow Yellow by Skyler Drevan (1)
"at least you learned to write." -- D.


Value Of A Relationship Based Approach To Autism by Dr Dan Edmunds (1)
"You are absolutely right about a relationship based approach to autism during childhood. It is during and after puberty that life grows difficult when combined with extreme hyperactivity and epilepsy. I don't know how we managed with our son during that time and young adulthood. We always tried to do without drugs, except for controlling seizures. Our son is 49 now, still non-verbal, uses necessary medications, but is a happy man." -- Rosella Alm Ahearn, west covina, California, United States.


The Religion Of Bio-Psychiatry by Dr Dan Edmunds (1)
"Anyone who has experienced kundalini awakenings through spiritual practice seems to end up in the psych. ward of the local hospital. You are then drugged until you say what they want to hear so you can go back to work. I was diagnosed bipolar in 1995 and humbly take minimal medications for the good of all. I can tell you this: when the spirit cometh, it does not matter what drugs you are on. " -- Gregory W Burkett, Rhinelander, WI, USA.


Rip Up The System! by Dream Rinsed (1)
"A 45 year-old non-conformist? Whether you realize it or not, you've become a copycat conformist to the same old airhead bullshit. You were just born twenty years later than the assholes of the sixties. " -- Richard.

Three Words by Adam Bradley (1)
"Adam, I love your story. This is my first time on this site and yours is the first writing piece I've read and I relate to so much of it. Not everything of course, but some of what you've said hit home. "The few that came my way turned around" is heavy, as were the words.. Paranoid. Depressed. Overweight. Dissillusioned. Oy, werk me noives why don't ya! Cyberdish in Toronto" -- Cyberdish, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


How My Cell-Phone Made Me Spend A Night In Jail by Philip Matthew Alarie (1)

Myths About Essay Writing by Denise Hurst (1)
"Dear author, I'm confused. Who wrote this essay? Maritha or Denise? Or are they the same person? Everyone that has seen my reviews knows that I'm a stickler for punctuation, grammar, and spelling. Whoever wrote this essay has plenty of writing issues. I could excuse some of the teenagers who lack the education and compositional skills, but if you're going to write about helping people who want to write, you're not setting a very good example. Unless these are typos, (which is still inexcusible for a mentor type person)you have a problem with tense and have failed to pluralize several words as follows: First sentence - "disapprove the idea" You left out OF. Next - "Here are among the common misconception" You don't need among and MISCONCEPTIONS needs an S. Next - "Student may contest" Either you mean, A STUDENT or STUDENTS may contest...."that professors assign certain topic and tone" Should read "A" certain topic and tone or certain "TOPICS AND TONES" to be used. Next- "The length of the essay is often the anxiety of most of the students" This is a poor choice of words. Do you mean to say, "is often DUE TO or RELATED TO the anxiety of the students. Next - "The gravity of the essay....." What the hell does gravity mean here? Wouldn't you be better off saying "The STRENGTH of the essay LIES (not is)in its power......" adding "rather" at the end of the sentence seems like another bad fit. Finally, the last sentence - "The three suggestions above aims to eradicate....." Suggestions is a plural noun, which requires a plural verb. The verb should be AIM not aims. Also in that sentence - "some of the false impression" Should read "false IMPRESSIONS" And finally again - "handed down to the youth of present generation." You omitted the word THE before present. You may think I'm being unkind or perhaps that I'm just a nitpicky smart Alec, but if you re-read this essay, you will see how these errors stand out and believe me they would to a legitimate college professor. You have made no attempt to use paragraphs, which is a fundamental writing technique. I assure you I'm not a racist and I have no idea of the ethnic origin of the author of this essay. I did notice however, that several of the grammatical errors involve the failure to use the plural tense when required. This is a common characteristic in the speech of many blacks, like the expression, fifty-cent instead of fifty cents. Although some blacks may find it acceptable to speak like that in their social environment, it is definitely not acceptable English grammar to use in any writing style. I would be very interested in your defense of this essay you have presented. " -- Richard.
