commented on Paul Ryan Tells the Truth for Once

commented on "Seth MacFarlane and the Oscars’ Hostile, Ugly, Sexist Night"
I traveled to Seattle over Thanksgiving and found the city to be lovely--if a bit wet--and ate far too many excellent meals. Too bad I didn't ask a townie what I should do while I was there; judging by Slog I missed out on the local pastime: bitching about guns, pitbulls and award shows.
I'll just have to take in the local color the next time I'm in town.
commented on Chinese Water Torture for Your Ears
Wait, so the writer was at a salon--an establishment where by definition a person does the work of clipping dead pieces of your body off for you--and yet complains about someone clipping dead pieces of their body off of themselves? I think this might fall under the "Maybe there are bigger things to whine about" file, like the post about eating french fries with a fork.
commented on White House Caves on Birth Control Coverage
