    Dog?!? That, Sir, is the sound of a Barking Moonbat!

    Boxturtle (Amazing. Somebody on FDL who doesn’t speak Moonbat!)

    Being a leftist (at least as far as America is concerned), I think the correct phrase is “71 year old Barking Moonbat”.

    Ah, usenet. Destroyed by trolls and spam, it shows that humanity is not ready to self-govern. Now we have blogs with moderators. Spammers and trolls are dying out because of this, as there’s little point if 90% of your posts get auto-moderated and the remaining are killed within minutes. I can’t recall the last time [...]

    I do miss receiving the letters from overseas with the stamps and foreign markings I’d never seen. But now, I have “pen pals” all over the world. I have a place to stay should I ever visit Canada, Japan, South Korea, Israel, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Australia, or England. At least. I don’t know where everybody I [...]

    Why you no read TPM? I’m not a regular, but I do hit that site several times a week either from posted links or my own googling.

    Boxturtle (Admittedly, I don’t have time to read all the good blogs I’d like to)

    What initially attracted me to the lake was a co-worker (Hi Jill F, Guess who this is!) who recommended it to me when I spouted some uninformed nonsense. She implied it MIGHT help my case of crainorectal inversion.

    I do wish Jane would show us view counts for OE. I know they have to have them and I’m really curious how many lurkers we have.

    Boxturtle (if they are tracking back by posts, I’m gonna wait until MY OE to pony up. :-) )

    Are you old enough to remember Pen Pals? I had several as a student. Once email became ubiquitous, that ancient ritual went away…to be replaced by tweets. I think we lost something in the transition. Getting a letter from Germany or Scotland ain’t the thrill it used to be. But is IS much cheaper. Boxturtle [...]

    Good Morning All! Excellent history lesson to say the least! It was Blue Texan’s posts that got me following the early morning stuff and having no life I kinda stuck around. Cold here, though it’s supposed to break 60 I ain’t betting on it. Kittens do NOT care for the cold windowsills and naturally they [...]

  • I agree with your assessment. It HAS to have come from the prosecutors office. “unnamed officials”, my ass. The DoJ knows who leaked that info and they’re not going to do anything about it other than talk. How much more does Gov. Nixon (purportedly a democrat) need to replace the prosecutor with an unbiased prosecutor? [...]

    Don’t bother, I’ll never keep “its” straight. Or then/than.

    I wasn’t dismissing the story based on the source. In fact, that story is accurate. What I was pointing out is that the source does not seem to have the same concerns for plants and animals if they are damaged by coal or nuclear power generation.

    Amazing that it went on for so many years.

    I think it’s more amazing that it was finally discovered. If the NCAA respected it’s bylaws, they’d promptly investigate every sports program for the same thing.

    Boxturtle (If they can get a whitewash on the books early, it’ll be tougher for the whistleblower later)

    At the minor university (state supported) I went to, the intro classes in physics were referred to as Engineering Physics (everything calculus), business Physics (everything algebra), and Football Physics (almost no math at all). Story: i was in my physics prof’s office getting a tutoring about a concept i just couldn’t grasp when the phone [...]

    This after 5 prior investigations cleared the university and placed the blame on one professor. And after the University attacked a whistleblower who was saying exactly what the report says.

    It’s time for college sports to go away.

    Boxturtle (EVERY university has special “football” classes for the terminally dumb)

    It has been a long time since he’s blathered something outrageous enough to get air time outside his own network. He could probably claim 20K members or so, though the large majority would be TV-Only.

    I think he may fail on the Ins defense

    Sometimes, people forget that for THAT Judgement they don’t get lawyers or the 5th amendment.

    I think he’s preparing an Insanity defense for when he’s called to Judgement.

    Boxturtle (If I were God, I’d have to at least consider an insanity plea from him)

    How does he know it’s not Gods punishment for executing innocents or for discriminating against a subset of God’s children? The only transmissions in the US have been in Texas.

    Boxturtle (Just sayin’….)

    Dunno. Seems like it would work every time.

    For your amusement: RJ Reynolds bans smoking in their offices.

    Boxturtle (yes, THAT RJ Reynolds!)
