...no longer a first-time commenter

long-time reader is, because he thinks.
10:16 AM long-time reader commented on Dan Savage's Open Letter to Paul Allen on Lidding I-5, Righting a Wrong, and Leaving a Legacy.
Great letter, notwithstanding that pointless, tacky dig at hippies and "sensitive millennials". Isn't sensitivity a laudable characteristic, anyway? You're being *insensitive*, and that reflects poorly on you.
Nov 28 long-time reader commented on Food News: All of Your Old Favorites Are Slowly Disappearing But at Least You Can Comfort Yourself with Dumplings and Vegan Ice Cream.
I don't know what the fuck that silvery-grayish liquid is on those spoons; but it cannot possibly be edible. It looks like industrial adhesive.
Nov 22 long-time reader commented on You Will Enjoy Jody Rosen's Epic Twitter Rant on Bullshit "Urban Elites vs. Middle Americans" Clichés.
Yeah... I'm not sure exactly what Twitter is good for, but this definitely ain't it.
Nov 22 long-time reader commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Dear Old—Really Old—Mom and Dad.
The previous post ends with a question, yet comments are disabled. WTF, Jen Graves?!
Nov 20 long-time reader commented on Letter to the Editor: "If We Glance Away, Even for a Second...".
@2, that's a powerful story, but as a bike mechanic I'm wondering what tools you would have brought to fix this particular problem. Did you bring a cordless drill and a drill bit to drill his rim to accept Schrader valves?
Nov 8 long-time reader commented on Gameshow of Thrones.
The Queen has fuck-all to do with the government of Canada. She's basically a mascot and nothing more. You do know that they elect a Prime Minister up there, yeah?
Nov 8 long-time reader commented on Savage Love Letters of the Day: What's In a Name?.
My money's on "Mercutio", if only because I like the sound of it myself. And whatever it is, you could do much worse than a Shakespearean name.

But yes, required reading for all future parents.
Nov 8 long-time reader commented on Newsweek Hasn't Rigged the Election, But Kurt Eichenwald Has A LOT of Dirt on Trump.
Sometimes a comment thread flame war is so bad that it develops entertainment value. This one, unfortunately, has no value whatsoever.
