commented on SL Letter of the Day: Welcoming a New Reader to the "Savage Love" Family
"They fought to give you the freedom to be a man who lives right and flies straight."
No matter how many times I hear this argument, it never fails to amuse me. Lots of people claim to love freedom, but only if people are using their freedoms in specific ways of which the speaker approves. Obviously this means they don't really love freedom at all; they love conformity and order.
Soldiers died to establish and protect the Constitution, and the Constitution says you can stick things up your butt if you want to. The courts have been very clear on this.

commented on The Dirty Secret of Electric Cars
Guys, let's think this through. Electricity is fungible and both these utilities connect to the same power grid and exchange electricity with other utilities (notably the BPA.) It's entirely possible, for example, that your Seattle-charged Tesla causes BPA to have less power to sell to PSE, which means they must turn up Colstrip to make up the difference.

commented on A Note About This Week's "Savage Love"
This is surprisingly common in Savage Love letters -- a letter launches in talking about "my boyfriend" without first mentioning basic information like "I am a straight woman." I don't know if that's because that's how their written or if the info is lost in editing.
