More like "Stubborn", TD. Thanks, though. I don't like doing push-ups, but I liked limited use of that arm even less. The surgeons are pretty amazed about it, but then, they've never had anyone survive that particular kind of sarcoma for more than two years, either. My warped sense of humor helps, as does my belief that somebody up there actually cares. There must be something I'm supposed to do.

It's amazing, the types of animals people claim to need for "emotional support".
Well played!

As though "a couple hundred" pods would be of any use any way; maybe the intent for emergency use would be to shelter the politicians....

Absolutely spot-on - since Tri-Met started building out their toy train and streetcar lines (spending billions of dollars in the process)ridership has declined from 6% to 2%.

Hear ye! Hear ye! The court's in session, the court's in session; now here come da judge.
Unfortunately, it's all finally over; I have no idea as to what the television news crews will do for now.

Ha! I was reading the other day about about the effect of carbonated water on teeth; it's not good.
Yes, if there's one thing about the Clintons that's undeniable: they know dirty.
And so then they have some more studies, hold some more meetings, do some more speechifying, and repeat.

Actually, I've never understood why New Hampshire's considered so important. When I think of the place, I think "addicts".

Good point. Unfortunately, his military won't kill him.
They're special. We're expendable.

Ha! I believe it boils down to something like this, fritz: animals and Gaia are wonderful, but most people should be eliminated (except for them, of course).

Thanks, Sam - it was satisfying to finally hit 50 without losing it and falling over again. That tipping over got really irritating.

You get mad. Then you start laughing and cracking jokes. And you keep working toward fixing the problem. And yes - it's a personal choice thing. I find staying upbeat helps.

True, Metro wants to keep running the corrals - and not for horses.

Well, those are average rents, so while a studio apartment might be less, you could easily buy a couple of votes for Jeb! if you went with a 2-3 BR unit in SW Portland.

Yep, letting people live where they want to live instead of where they're supposed to live would be a Crime against the State.

Just asking the question that no one else is asking...;-)
Your brother was doubtless correct, and it does seem that heads should roll - but so far, that's not happened.

I'll go out on a limb here and guess that you're correct; the whole purpose of doxing is to intimidate and frighten the victim. Could be worse, I suppose: he could have sent a SWAT team over....

Given the ongoing uproar in ChIraq regarding white cops shooting blacks, it's not likely to win any points among a lot of folks in the city. Especially since this guy scored a two-fer and is now claiming he was traumatized. Maybe he ought to consider a different line of work. Although for now, they have him on desk duty, pushing papers all day.

True enough; in addition to their myriad other issues, they are abjectly humorless.

Yep. But philanthropy only goes so far, it seems.
