commented on Dems Filibuster Gorsuch; Senate About to Go Nuclear
Max - only for SCOTUS for now, but I say let it die. It has been abused horribly against Obama. The Senate was never meant to be a super-majority body on all legislation. At the very least - return it to the standing filibuster, ala "Mr Smith".

Teddy G - you claim to know football. I remember you trying to explain the rules a few years back to folks on Slog who really couldn't care less. Now we got a real beat writer who is killing it ( keep it up, Spike!). And all you do is bitch.
You don't think the refs know that rep and are gunning to make up for that one blown call w Jones? You know it.
That is the best D in the NFL and those were some phantom calls. Still not the reason they lost (oh the O!) but horrible nonetheless.

Love the stats- based approach. But one doesn't add up. You say that 19.7% of women will be raped in their lifetime, and then that 1 in 5 of college women will be raped while in college. Do you really believe that there is a greater likelihood of college women being raped in that 4-5 year window than for non- college women in their lifetime?
