    "Brazilians spend more to honor their mothers than do Americans, by an average of $171 to $144." Exactly how does spending money honor mothers? No offense at having another holiday, but is it more honorable if we love our significant other 365 days a year rather than just Valentine's Day, think of Christ year round versus just on Easter, express patriotism other than July 4th, hiring/supporting servicemen versus just putting out the flag on Veterans and Memorial Day... Commerce is always waiting for an excuse for a sale and the year is full of "holidays" to open our wallets and acquire more stuff... which only equates to honoring shopping and shouldn't be equated to real things like saying often we love our mothers, living good lives that say their sacrifice and effort was worth it and staying in touch year round.

    Go beyond the fifteen minutes of fame and you find ten years of neighborhood cluelessness.

    It's good that Ramsey was there to help and that he did so. However, if you want to pin the 'christian' label on this guy as some sort of ad for religion like he apparently is for mcdonalds, you can have him.
