Jesus, the sheer number of things that you are "really lucky" for could fill a book. (...oh yeah.)

Yer kidding. Last three cons I went to seemed like half the gaming tables were plastered in Heroclix boards.

But those people didn't go away. They're still here. Some of them even voted for Obama despite that fact. They're just not in power in as much of the country as they used to. But look at Prop 8. What sort of a victory is it? Those people will continue to try to take away the rights of others and strip others of freedom and comfort... being nice to them is not going to change that. In fact, it's entirely believable that those people will only become more rabid, determined, or worse, desperate.

@Hugh: There are, in truth, more than two parties, but only two that receive significant financial support, which converts into advertising, which converts into attention. And they are the only two with a reliable nationwide presence. And to be fair, the position of a given party may drift as you go from state to state, staying to the appropriate side of whatever the political center of that state is. As they say, an Arkansas Democrat is more conservative than a Massachusetts Republican. Perhaps it's that tendency that causes them to be the strongest parties, but it's at the expense of having strong, consistent party values.

People who are voting yes on 8 simply aren't following Wil's mantra. I'd vote no on 8 if I were given the option; alas, WA has a decade-old DOMA. Despite that, municipal governments in the Seattle metro core have been increasingly expanding DP benefits.

The only good thing about the prevalence of mail-in voting in my county is that the polling place will likely be as empty when i go this time as it has the last half dozen elections I've voted in here. OK, maybe *slightly* less empty, but I don't expect any sort of line. Go ahead, though, surprise me, KC.

Thanks for this. How apt, too. "The Earth people who can think are so frightened by those who cannot." Like Sarah Palin supporters.

I think that, for a disturbing number of people, the prime reason for being a gm is to fuck with people. (And to think that you're clever for it.)

Hey, feel better. Prednizone, gee, I was on that just a couple months ago for iritis. It seems like steroids are the new antibios.

I OWN WEALTH is not a cool enough anagram for you? http://wordsmith.org/anagram/anagram.cgi?anagram=wilwheaton&t=1000 (frankly I like WHALE IN TOW better, but it might have poor implications. There's always NOW WITH ALE.)
