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

I should have mentioned the strong women I grew up around. My mother, in particular. Iron and oak.

Canada: too fucking big for stereotypes.

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

Douglas, you're canadian. Americans are more hard edged. We have to be. Look at all the awful Presidents we keep electing. You at least have single payer. We have ebola and fire in the streets. Nah, I'm a flatdeck trucker who drives all over the Western Cordillera, works outside in whatever weather...

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

How do we improve upon perfection? Other than the Canadian spelling of offense, it's wonderful. :D I have to fight the auto-correct for that! Thanks, L. D. Even my tablet lets me customize the library that the spell checker uses. Even lets me use Canadian English if I choose. What's up with yours? ...

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

Yes, Ezra, we're talking at cross purposes. If you look at my original comment, you'll see I addressed provocation specifically. Before you provoke an audience, you should always consider whether your intent is worth the possibility of offence. I understand your take on what I wrote, but I only mean...

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

I don't think this comment saves anyone from Offensensitivity. I think it merely says you if you know you're provoking someone, you've to consider whether that offense is worth the point you're trying to make. You have a right to speak, but you also have an obligation to consider whether -- for exa...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

As long as you are getting your shuteye, Douglas. There are stories of truckers getting into wrecks because of the idiocy of making truckers get paid based on miles, not hours. Hope you are doing well. It's lonely on the road. I take naps for the fatigue, and I come here to fight the loneliness. Th...
