commented on Canada's Left Abandons the Word "Socialism"
@3 - Canada has greater resources to support fewer people. it makes a big difference.
i believe that overall the Canadian system is better but to say that current household net worth is related somehow to socialism is a bit silly.
heck, judging the strength of a society based on its household net worth is a tad ridiculous.
if you had a lower household net worth coupled with a higher quality of life, wouldn't that be better than a higher household net worth coupled with a lower quality of life?
commented on A Modest Proposal for Mayor McGinn: "I Know You Like Bikes"
cycling is my primary mode of transportation.
this is a stupid idea.
i'd really love a physically separated bike lane running alongside a street N/S into downtown from each direction, but this does not require converting an entire street to low-density cycling use.
sacrificing parking on one side of certain streets is controversial, but at least the outcome is useful for cyclists. using up an entire street is something else entirely.

How can Jadzia be losing to Odo!?
"'In the Pale of Moonlight' is the best Star Trek episode, hands down."
"Far Beyond the Stars" is better.
Both are great though. I'd put Sisko a close second after Jadzia on the strength of those two episodes alone.
