For people curious about enforcement — often with cases like this (new speed limit, seat belts laws, cell phone rules, etc.) police depts will schedule a day and apply funding (provided either by the city, a grant, or a special interest group interested in enforcement of the law) to assign a handful of patrol cars dedicated to enforcing this one issue. They won't be out there every day looking for people going 25mph but the spectacle of people being ticketed (and subsequent local news stories) will go a long way in bringing traffic to its new norm.

Not sure what the point of posting a 115th comment about the cheater is, but it's really bugging me how much this wasn't a hookup with an old fling or a drunken mistake that could be forgotten, this was more premeditated and with more steps than a goddamn jewel heist. Please, CPOS, for the sake of everyone involved give this engagement enough time so you can figure out if you're feeling like marriage material right now.

I've always wanted to give Nietzsche the benefit of the doubt and assume we've always misinterpreted his most famous quote because at face vale it's an incredibly naive thing to believe.

Presidential debates should open with a disclaimer listing all relevant terms and conditions the network had to agree to in order for their guests to appear.

These assholes might have also destabilised the hill their homes sit on. Smart.
Also, I couldn't help but look up the offending couple's house (it's not hard to find). This information won't solve anything, but it's one of the ugliest houses I've ever seen.

I also find it troubling that the poster's creator thinks "skittles" is a common noun.

The fact that so many of my fellow young people can't see this is frustrating to me, and I can't help but think it's because they don't really understand how American government works or what the role of the president is.

For what it's worth, that's in no way unique to young people.

Good stuff—can't help but think she's channeling John McLaughlin just a little here.
