LadyO....I hope things get better :( I'm not sure I can offer any other help.

Val...yeah, C is the only viable answer there, but the reality is that a diverse workforce means 1) more customers since people are more willing to shop where they see similar people, 2) greater diversity of viewpoints, and 3) a greater chance of getting and retaining talented workers.

Just found out that a friend *abused another friend of mine. Which surprises me because he seemed so nice. Don't they all though?

*Sexual abuse. Accused another friend of shit he didn't do and has outted himself as a bully.

Anyone here know what I would need to do to get guardianship of one or more minors? 15 and 16 years old, if that helps.

I suspect that you would need to talk to a lawyer about that.

It’s probably easier if the current guardian wants to give them up. Otherwise, AFAIK it’s only possible when the abuse or neglect is bad enough that CPS would want to move them, and then it’s not certain you would be the one getting to look after them. They might have to go back when the situation changes, too, but that’s not likely to be an issue when they’ll be adults in three years.

If they’re in a dangerous situation, talk to CPS and worry about guardianship later (but do tell you can provide a home). If they’re unhappy but “safe”, it’s not going to happen.

Well four got good homes to stay at. That's the good news. The bad news is that Hiei and Squee were thrown away by some assholes.

Morgan's brother had another suicide attempt, so we're in California. We're going to try to convince him to go back to Kentucky with us. He had an attempt about six months ago and wouldn't come with us then. We think the change in scenery would help him at least a little. Anyone have any advice?

Try and get him hooked up with a good psychotherapist.

"YOU'RE NOT AGREEING WITH ME SO THAT MAKES YOU CRAZY!!!"

LO, the problem is not that I disagree with you, it is that you’re harassing me in PM and deliberately misinterpreting what I say while you’re doing that. Yes, I told you your behaviour towards me reminded me of people with borderline I’ve known, and that I need you to stop sending me messages because of that. Now you’re taking that back to public, it’s already the second time you’re misinterpreting that statement as being about your opinion rather than about your behaviour. (And that shows exactly what I mean.)

Have fun being the *only* person on my block list for this forum. (It’s set up so I have to click to see your public posts, and your PMs automatically get deleted before I see them)

To everyone else: this is the last thing I will say about LO. Please don’t respond and turn this conflict into a big forum drama.
