    Worrying Security Failure in Punta Cana Airport

    I've always wondered why people wrapped their bags in plastic at the airport. Is this the reason?

    Dominican Republic asks UN to put a stop to the worsening of complete chaos in Haiti

    I agree, but the UN really isn't a combat army, and I don't think too many of the big players have a taste for war right now. No one will call it war, of course, but death and destruction by any other name...

    Mass Shooting in La Romana

    Is there such a thing as "guilty by reason of mental defect" in the D.R. legal system? I'm guessing that killing a cop eliminates any feelings of sympathy in the judicial system.

    The D.R. and 9-11

    The article is 4 years old, but still relevant.... https://dominicantoday.com/dr/local/2018/09/14/dominican-republics-link-to-the-9-11-attacks/ This isn't an invitation to discuss U.S or international politics or religion. Just an article I found interesting.

    Children's Library

    The adorable "thank you" letter I recently received is yet another good reason to donate. Very well done! I'm not going to post it here, so if anyone wants to see it, you know what to do.

    Baseball Schedule

    Do you (or anyone) know where I can find a schedule online? The best I could find was one from 2013. I suspect those games have ended by now.

    Educators, Mothers and Dads: Tell me what is taught in public schools

    Don't sell yourself short; you are teaching, he is learning. I can't think of a better definition of success. Formal or not, you are now experienced.

    I'm Back

    Present! I was trying to establish which resort she worked in, but then I got 2 weeks in the Public Humiliation Bin for reasons unbeknownst to me. After 2 weeks in the hole, the thread evaporated faster than a chapi's eternal love.

    Yoplait Yogurt Warning

    I often buy the drinkable yogurt for breakfast in D.R. when I've had my fill of tres golpes. Does the label indicate where it's packaged? I don't recall the brand I buy but it's not Yoplait. I think it's Rica or another local brand. I buy local brands to support the local economy, not because...

    Death in Punta Cana

    Not heartless, just realistic - like the family. Assuming they can even get a court in D.R. to take the case, the discovery phase would take years. They will receive no cooperation from anyone, especially the hotel. Then assuming they win a monetary judgment - and that's a big assumption - good...
