    Totally unrelated question, but we're well over 300: does anyone know what the Norse, or from that region, version of the name "Jack" would be? Extra points if it tends to be used for someone who's not real bright....

    Thank you very much for the link to the story. I've passed it on.......

    Having been to one, in downtown DC about a month ago (I'm old, and high risk, though not as high as my SO), at least 3/4s of the people were wearing masks, as is true in most pics I've seen...

    That's not a problem if you walk over to the folks already there, and start talking to them. And it's not like I'd go armed... well, I am having hip issues, so if I take my walking stick, not a...

    I live in Mongomery Co, MD, a very large, DC 'burb. It's *very* liberal (our current county executive is, in fact, a socialist - came to the DSA for endorsement, and I decided he was good when he mentioned what...

    I like brisk, bracig... but when I was in Chicago, and it got down to 9F (-13C) it had gone to fucking bitter....

    For one thing, you down there, it gets hotter, and they won't let you take any more clothes off.... [g]...

    Oh, and I miss both Philly and Chicago. I *like* my cold winters. For you Suddeners, I have two things to say: kudzu and fire ants. And, for Texas, grass burrs (yes, they *will* go through thin leather soles)....

    My SO lived in the Central Valley in California for a total of 7 years. I *lived* in Austin, TX for 7.5 years, and on the Space Coast of FL for another 3.5 years. She boggles at the sheer number...

    If there's any folkies here, you'll understand that my reaction to that is that the only song any of them can play is "Oh, the wind and the rain"....

    As I understand it, the original "sport" was "beat up opposing team members, but if it doesn't keep you from doing that, and you're in a convenient spot, try to make a goal"....

    What is this "puffer" jacket business? I look, and see old-style quilted jackets, since they're cheap, I'm guessing filled with cheap insulation? Why, yes, I do have a down parka. And the better kind, overlapping seams and an outer cover.......

    Yeah, well, I *wanted* Edwards that year... after Faux News used tens of millions in illegal campaign contributions to take down Dean. After Dean, Edwards' policies were good....

    Actually, the GOP has done two things, since Raygun: they pick a VP who is not only something for a major section of their voters... but also protection against assassination. I mean, Cheney, replacing W? Or (GHU!) Quayle replacing Bush,...

    Sorry? We declared war on Japan, Germany declared war on us, and we declared war on Germany, 11 Dec 1941. https://www.visitthecapitol.gov/exhibitions/legislative-highlights/declaration-war-germany-december-11-1941...

    Don't see where the John Carter image is from... but I'll note I saw a headline in the Guardian today, that Paul Begals, referring to the Hairball, says that nothing unites the people of Earth like a threat from Mars....

    Well, if she was with the Venceremos Brigade, good on her. And a lot of the 2nd and 3rd generation Cuban-Americans don't really care - remember when Obama opened Cuba, and a *lot* went to visit relatives? The pro-Mafia and...

    Any minute now, I'm going to pull out my steampunk goggles and wear them outside.......

    And Bernie, and others, have been pushing him lefter... and remember, Bernie in '16 kept talking about the Democratic wing of the Democratic party. Consider Hillary... and LBJ. And I suspect he keeps looking at Warren, and her huge crowds,...

    I've got my own answer. 1. Must be a technological civilization. 2. Must be within +/- 150 years of us. And, once you've met *those* criteria... 3. Must not be too paranoid to talk, and willing to wait, unless they've...

    [RANT[ And I bet this is the kind of idiot who reposts that stupid cartoon about "under socialism, you get half of your cow". How about EVERY FUCKING BILLIONAIRE pay for your healthcare? And NO CEOs get ANY bonuses for...

    Well, no. The GOP base are a tribe, alright, but really, REALLY do not understand democracy, and think that if they won, locally, they can shove what they want down everyone else' throat... and "bipartisanship" means "here's a bill, take...

    HMO's? Other than Kaiser-Permanente, there are few left - the insurance companies are all about "PPO", preferred provider network, and, oh, sorry, they're not in network, no, neither are they, nope, nope........

    Sorry, I disagree. From what I've read, heard, and spoken with, most Americans REALLY would like Medicare for all....

    And... there is Hugos....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Um, nope. He agreed to one thing, and the real point is HE LIVES AT 16oo PA AVE, NW, Washington, DC. Period. And the FL *county* board of elections.... Meanwhile, Pence has *not even the vaguest* cover. Like imPOTUS, though....

    *phew* I'm back. What, you didn't notice me leaving, looking nervous? About two weeks ago, a new vulnerability was announced that affected a ton of routers... including mine. Moi, trust the phone company's router to be secure? I have mine...
