Republican gerrymandering at it's finest. They won't be able to save themselves from themselves. It'll be painful for a few years for the poor saps unfortunate enough to live there but it'll backfire on the Rs in a big way, in say 3 years or so - once all the numbers come in (unemployment, living wages, education etc..)

My dog barks a lot. All different types of barks but ever since she was a tiny puppy she's just barked her cute little head off. The citronella sprayer has saved my ears along with my neighbors patience. It's not perfect, so I leave it turned off for the most part (just the fact that she's wearing it helps), but when she gets in one of her "moods", I'll usually turn it on and have a good walk or a wrestle session and she's back on her good behavior again.
My neighbor's human screaming parrot on the other hand needs to be dealt with in an unsavory (or savory!) manner.

Some of the worst "Southern" food I've ever had. I had the fried chicken dinner (biscuit and mashed potatoes) with a side of collards.
The biscuit was literally inedible. Like it had been cooked a week ago. I took one bite and was left chewing for several minutes. It was not a biscuit, it was a hockey puck.
The greens stunk of vinegar.
The mashed potatoes were also inedible and had the consistency of elementary school paste.
The chicken was adequate, though biting into it released large quantities of oil.
I'll never eat there again.

Couldn't make it through the 2nd episode. Terrible acting. Terrible plots. Terrible dialog. Terrible special effects. I can't believe it lasted an entire season.

Thank god I have a fast forward button for all the endless sentimental boring non-zombie scenes. I'm not really an action/zombie fan but I'm certainly not a fan of endless, pointless, "I feel sad and conflicted and need to talk about it FOREVER" scenes.
I was glad they fired the season one director/writer because I thought the new guy might spice it up a bit. I'll sit through a couple more episodes hoping something interesting happens, but I swear this is the most boring apocalyptic *anything* I've ever seen.

commented on So Long, Buckaroo
The owner, Donna, didn't pay the rent and when offered a totally reasonable buyout price that would have kept the Buck where it was, she decided to hold out for multiple millions of dollars instead - for basically just a sign and some wood paneling. I know of at least two great offers that were denied. Donna drove the bar into the ground and is trying to scapegoat the building owners who did everything reasonably possible to keep it going. I hope the new Buck doesn't suck, and it's sad that an institution was driven into the ground, but that's what incompetence does.
