Captain! How sad! A dog to greet you shows the world still has a solid footing. My condolences.

...Chelsea Clinton is no longer an automatic “no” when it comes to running for office someday... The hell she isn't!

JiB, this trip cushy and American. Marriott Renaissance on points. Then Hotel Pulitzer because I stayed there 40 years ago when it opened. Will look for a short term apt rental in Jordaan for another trip. A very pleasant trip!
Geode morgen van uit Amsterdam. Ik ben hier met mijn vrouw en verdamme iPad. Me, back after 40 years, showing my wife of 30 years around. Found a wonderful champagne and cheese bar at Nes 37 off Dam Square. Stop in and say hello to Robert. He knows all. Tasted three delightful champagnes and matching cheeses. We will be back!
CH, regarding shorting CBS because of Colbert, as luck would have it I backed in to a little CBS stock earlier this year as part of an estate of a loved relative. I liquidated. I'm glad.

How can I short the Colbert sale?

Ryan didn’t lose the debate to Biden. Pundits, without evidence, simply spun it that way.

Interesting. The close italic tag works on the preview but not on the full page. Progress! . . . not necessarily headed in the right direction. :-(

Jeb is projecting. His "act of love" could just as easily be an act of greed. You know, kind of like those pushing Jeb to run for president.
extending the intent to physically disarm to the desire to mentally disarm Mental disarmament -- not teaching the tools -- goes hand-in-hand with encouraging mental disengagement. A "joke":Teacher: Do you think ignorance and apathy are problems today? Student: I don’t know and I don’t care!
It is wrong to quote current presidents, too, because they could support a position that is untenable and then they could be forced from office by other progressive TruthSeekers because purity is diversity.
Did just get a slow-loading Clarice column. Wish I could get my son’s generation to take an interest in things that, if they don’t, will bite them in the ass. Thorough and well documented, Clarice.
Janet, your adjectivial takedown on marriage is on point. It leads to the question what benefits Tony and Steve want from "marriage" and what benefits our State ought to attach to its version of marriage. If, ostensibly, the State wants to enlarge to population, then say so. If politicians want to dole out tax "benefits" under the guise of marriage, then say so. If Tony and Steve want family insurance benefits and access to hospital then say so. There is no discussion, merely a battle to "win" that we all lose. Language matters.
Worry about global warming is not related to education in any systematic way Concomitantly, falling for BS is not related to edumacation in any systemic way.
JiB, take it from my sister, recently home from many years in London. We do not want to do like the Brits: Too little hit and too much miss.

Cromulent? A well-worn word around here. An active part of my lexicon.

The salien thing about Colbert is that he isn't funy. The salient thing about Colbert is that he thinks he is.

Jane, I sent it to Cruz. Needed my address. Now I'll get political solicitations from even more people. And surveys, don’t forget the "surveys." :-(
You know, there is no reason the Department of Justice has to be part of the Executive Branch. Only the Attorney General. Rather than impeach Holder, Congress could just remove his department and have it report to Congress.
He can’t be pure, he’s from Utah! [Example from Logical Fallacies 101. :-) ]
Re: Anchorage obtuseness. Had occasion to talk to a late 20-something and learned more about the kind of beliefs schools have created in this person and “well-educated” friends. 1) People in charge are "experts" who are hired/elected to do certain jobs. 2) We aren’t expert enough judge their ability. Only other experts can. [Corollary: Journalists have their own expertise] 3) We are busy developing our own expertise and can’t waste time learning to check up on others. 4) If you challenge my beliefs, I will check out and not listen to you. My conclusion? 1) Doomed!
Warmth and hugs, Ig. How wonderful all you and your lovely wife have brought to our community! She is still with us.
