Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

And . . . the post that dragged up the topic to begin with and that called out specific people by name (even though Steve Barber promised not to do that) is gone. So, mission accomplished, point made, the McRib is back, peace is in the valley, and all that. (Insert sound wav of Nelson Muntz saying, ...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Hey, Steve, how's this for "meanspirited nastiness": you are an obsessed sycophant who has absolutely NO idea what went down behind the scenes of the whole Connie Willis GropeGate brouhaha, and you drag our names out every time you have the vapors, despite promising us you would stop. More...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Exactly what the far Right says when one of their moderates steps out of line to work through to a compromise on a profoundly complex issue. And this is exactly what Democrats or Obama-supporters write when someone criticizes the build-up of forces into Afghanistan: It's complex! He's working on a ...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Here are two more articles you should read . You really think pouring billions into this government is going to do anything but cost money and lives? Ah, well, as Obama said in Oslo, "Peace demands sacrifice." (Funny, I thought war did, but I guess I'm not up on my Orwell-speak these days.)

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Why am I not surprised that all the avowed Democrats and Obama supporters think escalating the war in Afghanistan is a good thing? Folks, laugh at Frank all you want, but he's dead right on this. All the same, old, moldy arguments--there will be civil war! the Taliban bombed that Buddha statue! we h...

Rob posted a private message I sent him on the Forum. You said you had no problem with his doing that. So, yeah, Steve, you did "approve" it.

So . . .
