    Yup. I find his books fascinating and well-worth reading. But that next to last chapter - more like Harry Potter meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gandalf. Too much.

    I watched (or tried to) part of that. Ugh. The only decent thing in it was the plot twist.

    EDIT: this mini-series had possibly the worst, most rushed ending I've ever seen. Usually I'm...

    More than one of us were asking Randy to lock the thread. Glad he did. Some folks on there were WAY over the line.

    I have him on ignore, so I am blissfully aware that he's trying to beat up on me. I'd prefer everybody else ignore him as well.

    Are you equally annoyed by bills that passed the Senate with bipartisan support that Boehner won't bring up in the House? I'm speaking in particular about the immigration reform bill the Senate...

    Sure. If they are smart. The leadership is, but I see no sign that they'll be able to handle the Tea Party elements. Hell, Boehner couldn't handle them when there were fewer of 'em. And since...

    Well, I will remind everybody that the Senate passed a bi-partisan immigration reform bill well over a year ago. It is widely believed to have enough votes to pass the House, but Boehner won't let...

    Yup, I seem to have one. And it looks far too complicated for me to try and fix. Where's the best place to take the computer, with (hopefully) fast service? I'm using Ned's in the short run, but...

    Oh, just shut up. I'm commenting on local stuff WAY less than I used to. If I pop up occasionally, live with it. My occasional presence can't be any more annoying than your constant negativity.

    It looks to me like pretty every other local election, in which the Haslam family contributes a boatload of money to whomever they're supporting. And sometimes to both sides.

    Okay, good. Glad I asked the question. And I wasn't trying to put down Jamie or Scott or others at the paper. I've just been impressed by Josh Flory, and hoped he was ok.

    Best I can tell, the KNS thinks the only valuable part of MP was the entertainment section. How sad.
