If you make the most of it and you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, we just might get stuck with you as Obama's Secretary of State.

Miss Marple: Obama pushed for an early election because the Muslim Brotherhood was the only group/party which had an established organization, so Obama knew they would win. That is why Morsi got elected. I have a pic for that. Obamorsi:

TK: Hit! TK! I think you effectively killed the "Funniest Thing" thread apropos of your name. Ironically I couldn't say so on that thread without jeopardizing the literal reading of your name.

BB Key: Why not a POI thread And re-direct JiB from the last thread? That would be humane.

My only disappointment from spending all weekend at a neighbor's lake house and being locked up in meetings the last two days while the hit family enjoys the beach is . . . that there weren't more threads. If there aren't more threads I will continue not to post. [TheVIMH: is that a threat or a promise?] Who cares what it is . . . go back and look, what matters is I didn't split my infinitive! [TheVIMH: don't tell me you're threatening bad grammar if you don't get you're way] The second "you're" was bait. I'm not biting. [TheVIMH: that's not what she said] I will neither confirm nor deny what she said. [TheVIMH: you won't or you can't?] I will not deny nor will I confirm any allegation of biting her. But if any biting were to have occurred, I had her consent.

TC: Apologies to H&R for my violating the no correcting typos rule. You now owe an apology for breaking the no apologies rule, but of course you can't offer one without breaking that rule all over again. You're in quite the pickle.

I've only had one experience in a Catholic mass. In the late 90s a seminary bud got married. I and two other seminary buds flew out to Oregon to attend his wedding. After the ceremony on Saturday, we were left thinking where we could attend church on Sunday. This was before the ease of google-fu and so I hit the hotel yellow pages. I naturally went straight toward the non-denominational churches, in line with the churches the three of us currently attended. But one of the others suggested we step oustide of our comfort zone. So we ended up at a Catholic church. It was a somber and reverential service. The time came for communion, and I honestly did not know the Catholic teaching on communion. So I went up front. I was lost as to the teaching and tradition, so it took a bit of coaching, much to my chagrin, but I received a blessing in lieu of taking the sacraments. To this day I appreciate and honor the manner in which the Catholic church upholds the sacrament of communion. I'm glad I had the opportunity to observe it first hand. It may be my first and last time to do so, but it won't ever not be a part of my spiritual memory.

rich: what is that in reference to beasts? Can I once again reiterate that the JOM Style Guide directs a commenter to quote or reference the comment/commenter to which he is responding. Personally, I try to take the time/effort to write the person's name, and after the colon, quote that to which I am responding in italics. Sure, this isn't for everyone and it isn't necessary in all situations. But then again, if it were universally applied, the harm would be what? #UpWithAntecedents

mrs hit and run and kids got home from Texas today. Her sister and sister's husband came back with them. Good times. mrs hit and run and I had some errands to run, so we had some alone time in the car. So I said to her . . . "you won't believe how many girls have been throwing themselves at me since I've been going to the pool hall without a wedding ring!" She stared at me for a second. Raised eyebrow and all. That second lingered on for what seemed like an hour. Finally, I gave in and made a "zero" sign pressing my index finger to my thumb. She played along and said, "you're right, I can't believe hot young things haven't been throwing themselves at you because you took your wedding ring off." I love her so gosh dang much.

Miss Marple: when he was governor his wife told my sister that he doesn't like her to wear slacks. But... I am almost positive he thought he was going to be veep when Hillary got the nomination over Obama. There might be a problem here...

ManTran: As it happens, our fairly knowledgable dinner companions deflected any correlation with Cheyenne Mountain. Apparently there's not a lot going on there after Stargate Command was decommissioned. ;) That's what "they" want us to think. I think the convoy was this year's Santa Tracking Unit.
