>If you notice, Billy hasn't returned. hmm.<

Just to keep things on the up and up, as I PM'd Frank, I am not Billy. I know from the moderator that a few people thought I was. Wrong.

Breaking my own vow of absence to note that I have been cited as a Harlan apologist (with a slam on my "chivalry") on one blog:

I truly contain multitudes.

Since we are a moderated board, despite my own reservations about that, I have asked the moderator to please edit Mr. Ravenscroft's personal attacks, and to remove my pissed-off response in its entirety. David, thanks for the voice of reason. I'm done with this thread now, for despite my own intenti...

I'm finding that my reaction to what some people are saying on the Pavilion is far stronger than to what Harlan did or did not do to Connie Willis. Josh Olson's last post was, in my opinion, appalling in its aggressiveness and insult. I know he's got a project with Harlan right now, but he's still r...

Yeah, Peyton. You have to understand that as a Chicago fan, it's hard to like Peyton, just down the highway throwing all those touchdowns while we play musical QBs.

The fact that Palmer went nuts the other night is not the issue, so much that I think he could be really good. But yeah, Peyton...

I will of course be posting my team after tonight's draft. I may grab Carson Palmer in round 2. I'm a sucker for quarterbacks in FF.

Mark, thanks for the thoughts. I think I will go with the best WR around on the swing-back.

Rich, I thought I might wear a shirt with a picture of King George III, saying "taxation without representation keeps the rabble in their place."

>and Eric seem to feel that everyone has the responsibility to comment on this< I think that's a misconstrual of my position. What I did say was that there would be many Webderlanders who would want to talk about this amongst themselves, and they should not be discouraged from doing so. I did tell D...

Fantasy Football Season

Anyone else involved in a league? I'm in two this year, and for one of them I'm flying to Vegas for the draft this weekend. The other one drafts tonight online. In both leagues I'm second to last in a serpentine draft, so I'll be getting a mid-level RB but then a top QB or WR. Any thoughts on who's ...

Yes, there are several posts from different women on the Pavilion.

>And weren't both of you staunch advocates for understanding the context in the whole Israel/Hezbollah debate just a few weeks ago<

Unless I'm very much mistaken, I did not participate in that one at all, except to say may the best man win, early on.

>Josh's newness is irrelevant, BTW, he made a good (IMHO) comment< Actually, I was pretty unimpressed with his post. More "mountain out of a molehill" spinning. It's clear that this is not a molehill for a lot of people. And whether or not you or I think that's correct, there it is. The su...

>The issue is between the two of them. End of story.< No, I think it's been adequately argued on the Pavilion that this was a public act that took place on stage at a major sci-fi awards ceremony, and therefore deserves our scrutiny. And if it weren't for that scrutiny, it's unlikely that Ellison wo...

Tony, we're still waiting for your approach to the situation. The sarcasm is wearing thin.
