Policies have real effects on people's lives, though. A women told the story of an insurance company's policy not to cover pre-existing conditions at any cost, meaning her son couldn't get any health insurance at all because of a birth defect. And the ER at the hospital had a policy of not covering un-reimbursed care for non-emergencies, meaning her son was not given any treatment as his cancer progressed. He died at age 34 because these policies meant he couldn't get treatment. I don't think that's hyperbole.

This is a good story. I too have cards from the 90's. I would buy the boxes in hopes that 30 years later they would be worth 3X or more what I paid for them. Even though I know I wont be able to sell them at their present condition (mint) due to the value of the cards these days. I at least know they are worth something to me. They represent a chapter in my life.
Also this is for Sara Mertz, I am so sorry for your loss. As for the cards you are buying on ebay, don't think of them as junk. They represent a connection between you and your son. He would be happy that you are doing this in his honor. I think your husband knows why you are buying the cards. Your mailman should he happy , you are paying his salary 44 cents a stamp (lol). Within the past year I started collecting autographs through the mail. Since then I have over 100 autographs. I would send the baseball/football/basketball cards to the players homes, they would sign them and return them back to me. My wife thinks its waste of time and money. I tell her it raises the value of the cards and it gives me something to pass down to my son when he gets older.
PZ as for your cards they range from a few dollars to $100+ if you have a Joe Montana 1981 topps rookie card mint.
If anyone wants to learn how to start doing autographs through the mail let me know. I will give you the info you need to start.

Well, we are not moved either. Come on, these are policy disagreements based on different first principles. Moral? I think not. Try hyperbole.
Watching my child growing and becoming has been amazing! Watching her watching her daughter has been full of wonder! Life!
During the Christmas season many North Carolinains will not have check comming in or presents under the tree
Hello!!! How ironic that I went on and read yuor story about the baseball cards. I started buying them off of ebay just to give me something to do. I lost my son a year ago and have not recovered yet. So I started to go on ebay just look and see what it was all about. Well, I have so much junk now I don't know what to do with it!! My husband and my mail man were getting tired of my packages!! LOL.
So one day I remembered that my husband had some football cards and also my son had some baseball cards. I used to go to baseball games all of the time in my younger days so I thought I would organize them for him. and I truly enjoy it. Well now I have quite a few, not like you though!!. I loved it so much and it helped relieve some of the anxiety I was getting and get my mind off of things. SO,,,to make a long story short..if you ever wanna get rid of them I would love to buy them from you, it would probably keep me busy for a long time!! . I don't think I will ever get over losing my son but he loved baseball and played all his life and he would want me to do it. I miss him dearly, so that's what I do most of my days. I put the cards in toppers and them in the 9 page sleeves.
MCrory's lack of integrity is simply amazing...how does a Pope puppet like that expect to be re-elected?
I think it's a telling indictment of the complacency and cynicism amongst your readers that no-one is moved to comment on this tragedy.
Are we so jaded and obsessed with ourselves that we are not moved when a CHILD is shot in the head while handcuffed in a police car...and the cops say he shot HIMSELF.
Or is the new normal that we shouldn't expect any explanation? Timely and impartial investigations by media or law enforcement are no longer required by civil society?
The Police chief should be fired for prejudicial comments about Jesus's death. Oh yeah, suicides like this happen a whole lot, right? Better believe it.
Now that the Chief's narrative is out there, it becomes very hard to change. The press conference creates a public perception that becomes an insurance policy for the officer, in case he's charged with anything.
Lies from the President. Lies from McCrory. Seems like lying has become an acceptable political tactic. This infuriates people. Sometimes children lie because they are under too much pressure to perform or to achieve unrealistic expectations. It's easy to promise a lot of stuff to many people, but that's almost impossible to afford. Wouldn't it be better if politicians had the courage to explain what is realistic and then do their utmost to deliver achievable results? It wouldn't make their bases happy most of the time. But at least they would be perceived as honest. Now that we are living in an administrative state, leaders have to depend on the honesty of vast bureaucracies, who, too often, tell them what they think they want to hear. That isolates elected leaders and makes them look like lying fools.
