Is this "Ghandi" fellow any relation to Gandhi, Mohandas K. Gandhi? Their names are similar.

@1: Sorry, Fnarf. Sorrier, Gandhi. Fixed. "Mahatma" is also common.

'sokay. I believe Mohandas was his given name, and Mahatma is an honorific.

Why do the folks at Slog always get that wrong? It's not like "Ghandi" is a common name.

But hey, it could have been worse. She could have posted a photo of Time magazine and called it Life magazine in the headline.

It's interesting to me that more people don't find this completely alarming.

@9, and our selling to Taiwan is totally going to help us convince China to join in being economically mean to Iranians.

The State Department's using some blunt instruments out there.

Did you actually read the article on the GOP purity pledge? All the RNC decided was to encourage leaders not to give financial support to those who do not support the party platform. The 8 out of 10 list was abandoned.

How does sending a picture count as sex + TEXT + ing.

It's not text, it's an image.

So it's not "sexting".

@ 1: Fnarf, maybe it's sort of like Hitler and--oh, never mind. LOL.

I like "champion". (And Champagne.) (But not Chlamidya--no matter its spelling.)
