Maybe the celebrities should pay the college tuition for a number of students with good grades and SAT scores that cannot afford those expenses on their own?

Jail time and for parents and removed from schools with no credits for the kids.

The parents that did this need jail time. All the students need to be kicked out of the schools they are attending and all class credits CANCELED. NO CREDIT at all.

Ever since OJ, the rich and famous hire attorneys to get them out of the troubles they made for themselves. What does it tell the other rich parents wanting to do the same thing for their children?

They ARE criminals.....they should get jail time like anyone else that BREAKS THE LAW. Why should they get any privilege, who are they?????

I'd say more probation than jail time, though. Also depends on how much money someone was scammed out of.

all credits earned by the student should be cancelled and they should have a lifetime ban from the school in question. A permanent aster ix added to their college transcript.

Non-violent crimes, jails over-crowded. These are not jail-worthy; but hit 'em in the pocketbook! Hard! That's where it hurts the most. And I love the idea of banning their kids from certain campuses.

They should have to serve 10 years community service and pay the tuition for the five students who were closest to getting in.

I've pumped my own gas all my life until I moved here in 2018. Waiting in line for someone to do something I'm capable of doing is inefficient. As long as it doesn't cost job loss, I'd rather do it myself.

Absolutely!. It would get done in a more efficient way and more carefully because I care about my own rig and don't want the gas dripping on the paint.

Absolutely!! I have lived in other states for 65 years and always had to pump my own gas and I prefer it because it speeds things up. It makes for a much slower process having to wait for attendants to finish with 1 - 2 cars ahead of you when you could be doing it yourself!! Good to have the choice!

And, contrary to what many on the other side are saying, they are NOT taking away attendants for those who don't want to pump their own gas... just providing a choice to do it yourself for those of us who want to.

In Culver we usually do since we have 1 gas station and they only have 1 person working the store.

The push for this legislation seems more rooted in the benefit to station owners rather than the general public. If passed, prices won't be any lower at the pump. Besides, not pumping your own gas is pretty great.

There is no benefit to me to pump my own fuel. I do not want smelly hands. If they get rid of the Attendants prices will not go down. We need to keep it the way it is. There is no shortage of people who want to work at a gas station. There is also no shortage of greedy station owners.

I work on cars 5 days a week so sometimes i don't like to smell like gas. I got my start pumping gas. Also, after working all day, i don't always have the energy to pump my own gas. And my dear wife has no idea how to pump gas and has no desire to know, so she shouldn't be forced to.

I have found throughout history that self pumping does not lower gas prices. I prefer not to pump my own gas.

When in third grade we had an exchange student from Scotland. We exchanged letters with what would have been his classmates in Aberdeen. It was exciting learning about people's lives in other worlds. I continued communication with my "Pen Pal" through high school but then lost touch with her.
