commented on NOM's Sad Silver Lining
I agree, NOM's math doesn't compute, but I can't celebrate Steve Saland's loss as a win for the Democrats. Saland's stand for gay rights in defiance of his party was a truly magnanimous act, which is rare in modern politics. He didn't represent my district, but it's a sad thing that his constituents decided to punish him for following his heart and doing the right thing.

My prediction is that 47% of Americans will find Jill's comments to be charming and delightful. Another 47% will find them to be the dangerous ramblings of a feminazi nymphomaniac, hoping to sexualize our children and turn them into gay pedophile communist muslims. The last 6% will be paying more attention to "Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo".

Technically, that line you quoted from Jacques is actually him quoting Touchstone from their first meeting off-stage.
Other than that, great write-up! "As You Like It" may be my favorite of Shakespeare's comedies.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: Show This Woman Some Love
Listen to me, you awesome lady: This is a good thing. This is good for you, this is good for your nephew. Your hateful, hateful family has done both of you a favor. They've removed your nephew from a deeply harmful situation. They've given you another family member you will love and who will love you back. In their ignorance and evil, they've accidentally done something good. It is not going to be easy. It's going to be hard to have to support a kid. And it's going to be hard for him to adjust to his new life with you. But as long as there's love--and your letter is filled with love, despite the shitty circumstances--both of you will find yourselves with a life that was better than what came before it. This is (in a thoroughly non-Biblical sense) a blessing. It may not feel that way right now, but trust me, it will. I echo what Dan said. Thank God for you and thank God for others like you. It's people like you who make the world worth living in.
