Also, Laurie Frankel today asking the question, why are the hot books of the summer about abusive relationships?…

"...he had knowledge about a plot to basically steal money from the public."

There is no qualification necessary. The bankers didn't "basically steal" or "all but steal" or "use questionable methods to manipulate financial markets." They stole. They are thieves. They stole billions of dollars from millions of people. The fact that they stole an outrageous amount of money from an outrageous number of people instead of, say, ten thousand dollars from a freight company does not therefore make it necessary to attempt to lessen the impact of the language when describing it.

It was one in every five adult fiction books sold. Still a sign of the coming apocalypse, but not quite to the scale of "1 in 5 of all books everywhere."

One of my favorite scenes in all of cinema. Joseph Cotton has been doing his thing more or less competently for the duration of the movie and then Orson Welles shows up and acts circles around him.

"Five hundred years of democracy and what did they produce? The cuckoo-clock."

Theory: Republicans are Republicans because they are unable to forgive themselves (e.g. I was once a drug addict; I have not forgiven myself for it, ergo drug addicts must be punished). Discuss.

Charles, about 80% of the time I think your writing is complete lunacy. But man, that other 20% is world-class poetical.

"Reunion," M83. A little gift to all you children of the '80s.…
Dec 19, 2011 Transient Gadfly commented on "Cooter Is Forever, Man".
Not to crap all over an otherwise excellent point, but that was the argument people made for George W. Bush too--that you'd want to have a beer with him. I don't want someone in elected office because I'd like to have a beer with him or her. I want them in elected office because they're, you know, competent.

That said, I don't want Gingrich anywhere near any elected office ever. That dude's fucking insane.

It's 11:25 pm on December 21st, 2010 and I'm calling it: I don't understand anything in the world anymore.
