@16 - some pretty solid playing on that pinball clip. I especially liked the soprano sax and steel drum breaks.

This is music. If one reader who hadn't heard this before learns about it, you've done your good deed for the day.

@19, spoken like someone who lives on Cap'n Crunch and frozen tamales. I'd explain the concept of boiling point elevation, but it would be too much like science for you.

Sasse is from Nebraska, not North Dakota. Not that there's much difference. My mother is from the same town, and even she, staunch GOP voter since Eisenhower, couldn't wait to get out.

I suspect that you'll find few capital punishment supporters who don't believe in some sort of hell. Those of us who don't buy the argument that death is the gateway to eternal torture aren't going to be so quick to impose it. @7,8 - agree with being honest about the barbarity. If we're going to have the death penalty, it shouldn't be a medical procedure. It should be administered in public, with an axe, by the governor of the state. Yes, there are a few sick people who will enjoy it, but far more will see it for the relic of our primitive past that it is, and demand that it stop.

@9, second the motion on "Hammond Song", and also "Losing True" from the second Roches album.

If we're going to have capital punishment, it should be administered by beheading. In public, by the governor of the state. Using a sword, Saudi-style, takes a certain amount of skill, so perhaps an axe would be better. I'm looking at you, Rick Perry - let's see how tough on crime you really are.

I was fairly sure by age 11 that religion was all a big con, but I wasn't about to "come out" to anybody about it. I do not understand to this day why my extremely conventional churchgoing parents had a copy of Letters From The Earth in the house, but they did, and once I got my 11 year old hands on it, I became an out-and-proud unbeliever.

Anything in Aramaic sounds pretty much like Klingon.

@31 - Calling BS on something is not "stifling discussion."
