Jan 18 Jude Fawley commented on Watch Barack Obama's Last Press Conference as President of the United States.
He gave credit to activists and people who took real risks in the past.

My take is that for a politician, he is humble and gracious. If we can imagine Trump making strides for GLBTQ rights (hard to imagine of course...) he'd brag about it every step of the way on Twitter, and then give himself a Medal of Freedom.

He went out of his way to NOT take credit for GLBTQ progress over the last 8 years.

This show seems so claustrophobic.

@7 I don't take the needle report at face value. I was asking about the parking/residency. Not sure what the laws are in that part of town, but whether or not they are breaking the law by parking there seems relevant to the issue.
Jan 12 Jude Fawley commented on About Trump's L.L. Bean Tweet.
On a side note, there's a good This American Life episode about L. L. Bean's return policy, the lengths they go fulfill their absurdly generous lifetime guarantee; and the lengths people will go to return things (e.g. returning two-decade-old slippers, buying things up on Ebay, and returning them).

Not sure if this has anything to do with Trump...

Are they breaking the law?
Jan 12 Jude Fawley commented on Watch Cory Booker Reprimand Jeff Sessions for Years of Voting Against Marginalized Americans.
Does anyone know what Patty Murray's justification for that vote was?
Jan 11 Jude Fawley commented on Bands I Pretended to Like for Boys. Part Five: Grateful Dead.
"Everything the Dead did was right on the edge of being hokey, right on the edge of veering off."

This statement explains, in a way I never really understood to myself, my ambivalence about the Dead.

For what it's worth, I love the acoustic stuff Jerry did (e.g. the albums with the mandolinist buddy, e.g. "Not for Kids Only"), but the jam-band sound just never excited me. Maybe it will in ten years...?
