Stacey and Friends...

Posted: 06:05 PM ET

**Here's a profile, albeit, a couple of years old, of Stacey Honowitz who will be on Larry King Live tonight to discuss the latest in the Caylee Anthony case.  We thought you'd enjoy getting to know a little bit more about her...

By Bob Norman

It was the mouth that struck a chord. Everything else about her, the rouge on her cheeks, the long brown hair, the dark-tanned skin, was common enough, especially in South Florida. But the mouth? That was special. Giant and audacious. Glorious and monstrous. A mere instrument, a maestro, a mauve-lipsticked Chopin that seemed to hold all the answers to all the questions in the universe. Just a glimpse of that glistening smacker told me I was in the presence of a star.

Stacey Honowitz, cable TV prosecutor.

You've seen her, whether you realize it or not. Honowitz has chatted it up on the small screen with everyone from Sean Hannity to Dr. Phil, from Geraldo Rivera to Bill O'Reilly. Lately she's been a regular on Larry King Live. Name a court case that has supposedly gripped America, and you can bet she's opined on it. Want to know about Michael Jackson or O.J. Simpson? Debra Lafave or Natalee Holloway? She'll tell you all about them, whether she really knows anything about the cases or not.

And that's what a real TV talker needs: the courage to plow ahead, no matter how thick the air gets with speculation and doubt. Honowitz is a doubt killer. She's second-in-command at the Broward State Attorney's Office sex crimes unit; it's what she does when she's outside the national limelight. She kills juries' doubt.

I'm one of the unfortunate people who played by the rules. Because of those who did not, my property is valued at 200K less than I paid for it in 2005. What is Obama doing for those of us who paid 20% down and got fixed mortgages when the foreclosed property has lowered our property values. I had to turn down a job promotion because I could not take the 200K loss on my home. Help the American tax payer, not those are irresposible.

Can you please ask the experts that the prices still keep going down or up?

I took care of my mother for 3 years she died 6/2008,she has a reverse mortage as executor of her will. I'm tring to honer it but oboma has't helped. I'm afraid it will be forclosed on and her will won't be honered and I will be on the street. and her lawyer will be not be paid and I'll bankrupted. I loved my mother took care on my own ,but no one has brought up how to solve this and by taking care of her it didn't cost the goverment a diime. Want else can I do

I think the Obama plan would be better if he also included a tax credit for Banks that modified mortgages for struggling home owners. i think home owners that use this bailout should be made to forego a portion of watever benefit that property would have in the future. for example if a borrower refinances a 500,000 loan at 6% to 350000 at 5% then if the property is sold in the future for maybe $380,000 then $30,000 should be paid to to the bank to reoup a portion of their initial loss, and when the property is sold again maybe from 380000 to 460000 then the same process happens again. that way banks would lend knowing that no matter what happens they would recoup their investments. and neighbourhoods would not lose value. Simply idea that i guarantee would work.

I love the Dugger Family,
I think that the Dugger family exhibits what a family is suppose to be. I love the way they teach their kids to be self sufficient, resourceful, dedicated, show pride in whatever they do, educate themselves and to love and take care of one another unconditionally,
There were only three things I worried about when I watched their show.
1. I worried that the kids had so many siblings that they never had a need for socializing with other people. I felt that they may have some trouble if they were ever away from the family on their own.

2. I worried about the fact that I have seen so many sheltered children get very wild, when they finally get out of eye shot of the extreme discipline that the Dugger family practices. They seem to live like they are in the 19th century. I feel that since they don't watch much, if any TV and they don't use the internet, or go around many outsiders that they may be in for a bit of a culture shock.

3. I didn't think they allowed their children to express their individuality
in their dress and with this many people surrounding you all the time; it is hard to have a private though or be by yourself sometimes. The older children don’t seem to have much of a childhood always seeing after the younger children. Mom and dad seem to be enjoying the fact that they could have a large family and enjoy each other and making more.

But I love the Duggers and I hope they help the Optumom. The Dugger family and the Optumom have something in command; they both are the best examples of the right to chose and the right to life. They both live on either sides of the issue.
The difference in the two are that the Duggers are very frugal and self sustaining and can take care of their children without any help , where as the Optumom needs all the help she can get!
