I've always detested what I refer to as "management by spreadsheet" for this reason. It's a tool, but not a solution. I expect it only to get worse.

I'm afraid as far as courage goes, it's "turtles all the way down".

I'm sorry I can't find the link in my 300 ms of searching, but I remember reading about a researcher (anthropologist?) who noted that many Africans, not having such a meat-heavy diet as ourselves, had more frequent and quite less smelly bowel movements, and almost zero incidence of colorectal cancers. Again, I'm doing this from memory.

When the US is unable or unwilling to police the world playground, the bullys start picking fights.

Even Mephistopheles was more respectful in "Faust".

I see this as a tragedy. He lived and died for nothing. He almost took a lot of people with him, too.

I am convinced we will continue inexorably to a violent conclusion to the culture wars as the institutions collapse as a result of their own abuse.

History doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes. As far as the US Congress is concerned, it seems to me that we send out replacements, but they keep getting bitten and turned into zombies.

I have the same reaction listening to the radio or watching television. The media Eye of Sauron has a very short attention span and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Even when they get the facts right it's tabloid news.

I don't believe the introduction of the narrator as an "ex-conservative". There's too much smug whining about the "evil Dick Cheney" and successful capitalist enterprises.

We can all learn from such sage advice. "Miller's Alley" is right up my alley now, too. Not to make a pun, but I like the bowling alley analogy of politics. America has been throwing "gutter balls" for years now. Both sides (extreme right and left) score no points.

"Fancy" works for me. When Nero yelled "Spock!" for the first time, I thought I heard a word not normally allowed in PG-13 movies.

What if they were both building the same tanker plane, much like Jeeps and Liberty Ships were made by different contractors in WWII? GE and Westinghouse both made submarine power plants, and the better component from the prototype went into production.
