BTW, under the ADA, accommodations have to be "reasonable."

Or just take Kevin's designation as "ASL interpreter" out of the program and replace it with "interpretive dancer." Then distribute a hand-out of the show's lyrics.

@6 It's what's behind the curtains that counts! There's a rather staid, 19th-century apartment building in Rome, owned by the Vatican, that houses more than a dozen cardinals in luxurious 3,000-4,000-square-foot suites. Looks just like all the other buildings in the neighborhood, except that it also houses Rome's largest gay bathhouse in the basement.

@10 The typo is in the Stranger's transcription of the death notice. Apparently Stranger reporters can't copy and paste.

P.S. Count me as another one who's glad he's dead.

Much as I dislike Bank of America, I would have to see the refinancing history of this property before I could get behind the SAFE campaign. If, like so many others, Mair used her home as a piggy bank to finance her career as a "human rights journalist," then she's pretty much on her own, as far as I'm concerned.

"Surely this is the worst thing that's ever happened—worse than the time the city spent some money on a "special" sweeper to maintain its cycle track." Actually, it reminds me more of the time the city spent $1m on a self-cleaning outhouse. What wrong with using a lamppost? (To chain your bike to, I mean, not for pissing.)

I think you mean just desserts.
Also, petard: from the Latin peditus, to break wind. Rather appropriate, in your case.

I stopped reading with "pretty much everyone but Julian Assange agrees that Julian Assange is an egomaniac."

@4
Same species, different varieties. Do you live on my block? We have the same thing — all Norway maples, but lots of subtle differences between the trees, including, height, shape, density, color, time of leafing out, fall color, etc.
