#1, how come "Sooners" hasn't made it onto the list of racist team nicknames? Think about just what it is that "Sooners" commemorates.

The answer is obvious. Oklahoma has a lot more clout with the NCAA than North Dakota, Miami (Ohio), Dartmouth, and William and Mary.

I have no connection to any of these institutions. I just think that Fighting Sioux, Vandals (Idaho), and Sea Lions (Point Loma Nazarene) are cool nicknames.

@4: I agree with giffy, and Howard Dean. And Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC, who refers to it as the "fiscal curb". Obama shouldn't even waste time talking to Boehner. Just let those tax cuts expire, period.

OK, if today was not the day, Monday will do. Here's a petition to the White House organized by Daily Kos: http://campaigns.dailykos.com/p/dia/acti…

#15, I know that gun nuts are impossible to reason with. Yourself included. And I look at myself in the mirror at least twice a day.

And Urgutha, people who use guns to murder children are cowards.

vavavarooooom, Ms. Unpaid Intern didn't type the things you attributed to her. You're behaving badly.

Re; GOL! or Not: Using high-tech solutions to determine if a ball crosses the goal line or not would only be addressing the tip of the iceberg. Nobody would seriously suggest that there be video reviews of every foul or non-foul. And if someone thinks that there was a hand ball, are they going to stop the game for a few minutes to review the film?

Here's something they COULD do, though. The Hawk-Eye product already involves putting a chip in the ball. It would be easy to clip a similar chip to the jerseys of all the players. Then, Electronic Arts could, in a matter of weeks, develop software that could accurately and automatically determine offsides and non-offsides. This would reduce the number of bad calls significantly.

@10, I can add the Oklahoma Sooners to your list. The term "sooner" is a celebration of taking land from First Nations that had been given to them as compensation for land taken from them previously.

Rmoney's cancellation of the credit cards shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone. After all, this is a guy who said that you have to make $200,000 a year to qualify as middle class, so this includes most of his employees.

It also includes all teachers, police, andd newspaper writers. I continue to be amazed that some of these people voted for Rmoney.

to "madcap": good idea!
