"Suicide: Man found in the Marion Apartments fire shot himself."

sez the police (who are in on it).

so I guess the GOP has resigned itself to (pardon the millionth use of the phrase) throwing the half sane portion of its constituency under the bus? Why does this make any sense?

I was jealous when I was little because I wanted to be a robot, like her. I loved that show too much.

3 people i know received letters from the state yesterday saying that their absentee ballot signatures didn't match records-- needed a form and more documentation to be sent in. Are republicans challenging these or is it coincidence?

Sullivan finds a parallel in the British Tories, who reacted to devastating defeat in '97 by pulling further into their shells. Their response to a national call to drift to the center by going hard right instead. I hope the Republicans get eleven times eleven years out of power in this country.

I like the description he found, by Thomas Yunick: "This unholy union is now reduced to a mash-up of Dixiecrat legatees and fellow travelers: prairie gunslingers, anti-tax fetishists, end times Rapturists, militiamen and Millenarians, jingoists and misanthropes, survivalists and skinheads, and the odd secessionist witch doctor. The infestation has taken over the organism." They deserve each other.

"this is incoherent: who have gone on to make rulings such as an anti-abortion law in South Dakota."
Please rewrite. You sound like Sarah Palin with her poor diction. Judges don't make rulings "such as a law". They might make an "anti-abortion ruling" they might develop the common law of privacy they might rule on a statutory law but they don't make rulings such as a law any more than you have a top of the line of an agenda.

They're so mavericky.

Holy crap! I was just watching the Small Wonder show intro last night b/c my partner had never heard of it. What an AWFUL show. How strange. . .

Last Gasp: Ted Stevens asks for investigation of the prosecutors in case that found him guilty.

What a fucking baby. I thought Alaskans were supposed to be rugged individualists marinating in personal responsibility.

I also loved Small Wonder... hard to believe now, but man, for some reason I couldn't get enough of it. I was pretty keen on really bad sitcoms when I was 9 or 10, though (e.g., Perfect Strangers, Just the Ten of Us, My Two Dads, Charles in Charge).

Windows VII, like Saw VII, is not better or faster.

They've already failed tests at Computerworld, fwiw.

Holy crap! This show has been popping up in internet conversation A LOT these past couple of months. I remember the Halloween episode where Vicki is possessed by a ghost giving me nightmares for a week when I was 5 years old.
