Sep 8, 2014 oh, THAT commented on In Legal Battle Over Grand-Jury Secrecy, Ninth Circuit Court Sides with The Stranger.

And the Stranger would be much more enjoyable if it didn't regularly take 15 seconds and longer to download on Safari. A month ago it was taking twice that long, then some tech fairy fixed it and now it's crapping out again.
Jun 25, 2014 oh, THAT commented on Kim Jong-Un Calls New Seth Rogen and James Franco Movie an "Act of War".
Does anyone else have trouble getting onto Slog? Loading freeze-up has been hitting all week. Earlier this year there were months of slow loading - 10-15 seconds every time. The trouble seemed to start with a change in online advertising.
Mar 4, 2014 oh, THAT commented on Same-Sex Marriage On Trial in Michigan.
I found this site gives the best reporting on the trial. The local Michigan news reporting strikes me as quite superficial.
Feb 7, 2014 oh, THAT commented on Father of 3-Year-Old Who Shot 17-Month-Old Sister Writes a Parenting Column.
Damn right, Goldy. The father is obviously incompetent as a paretn and a gun owner.
Nov 20, 2013 oh, THAT commented on US Supreme Court Fails Women, Allows Texas to Continue Restricting Abortions.
One other thing. Don't forget that women still have one very good alternative if an abortion clinic is not at hand: the morning-after pill. The prochoice forces should turn our attention to making the pill widely and cheaply available in every state to every woman. How about a delivery service? And the best solution of all is don't get pregnant in the first place by using the many forms of protection before intercourse. We should push harder on the availability of free or low cost contraceptives everywhere.

The SCOTUS conservatives are a bunch of assholes, yes. But I believe that what they did was send this case back to the lower court where it is still pending. SCOTUS does not like to take cases that skip over the lower courts.

As to getting Obama appointments approved in the Senate, the Washington Post reports today that Harry Reid will call for overturning the fillibuster rule before Thanksgiving.
Nov 18, 2013 oh, THAT commented on Hot and Busted?.
I'm puzzled, why is bad to ogle busted chicks but okay to ogle busted guys? Seems like both types of ogling are rude and tasteless, not to forget harrassing.
Oct 29, 2013 oh, THAT commented on Cut Social Security? Nope. Expand It..
That "sucky blog" is named Eschaton and it is legendary. It existed before "blogs" had much currency and has been raising hell in Beltway politics forever. The owner, Duncan Black, is an economist and progressive who has fought the good fight agains the likes of Bush and the right wing for years and years.

You owe him an apology, Dan.
Sep 23, 2013 oh, THAT commented on Surly Skateboarder, I Salute You.
Hat's off to skateboarders across the world. The most unfairly maligned enthusiasts in existence. They are typically creative, poetic, happy and brave.
Aug 30, 2013 oh, THAT commented on HULK READ BOOK.
First Malcolm Gladwell, now writing with all-caps. How many Mulligans does he get.
