I felt the same way about the state legislature back in 1994. At least we got rid of most of the conservative Democrats but then it took over a decade for Democrats to gain some of those seats back and today those seats are in trouble again.

commented on Inexpert Opinion: The Seahawks
The point is...the Vikings are predicted to be really good and the Seahawk defense did really well in the first part of the game. Really well! Later on when they brought in other players the team blew their lead and lost but at that point no one was really keeping score anymore since the players playing are not going to be on the team when the season starts. Now, the offense seems a little rusty but the pieces do seem to be coming together. Too bad backup QB Charlie Whitehurst didn't look as good as he did in his first series with the team.

I think these are Beavis & Butthead rednecks hearing whatever they want to hear and is actually offensive to people with German accents. What if these pigs had Asian accents and people said they were sure that the pigs were saying something else?

commented on Reading Tonight: Facebook and Dead Russians
How incredibly smug to assume that if the Internet was not around people would be reading piles of classic books or what exactly is the premise behind how the Internet is making us dumb. People learn so much so fast from the Internet now. So much more than when I was a kid it's just that us old folks can't seem to understand nor deal with the information superhighway. Is this more paranoia about how Wikipedia info is bogus and we only need to read the "official" version of anything?
