"There'll be no living with me after this. "
There was no living with you before. Wingnuts from either wing are tiresome.
Oh, ho ho ho, CC85. I read where Obama talked about people in Vienna speaking Austrian, but since Hoosiers is about sports lets have a fond moment remembering when Barry told reporters he was a big White Sox fan but then didn't know the name of a single player. He and Sarah Palin were both created by the media, and neither of them achieve expectations. I'll give Sarah this, however; when she talks she says something--whether you agree with it or not. When Obama talks, he speaks with a beautiful manly baritone but there's no content. I swear he learned all he knows about politics by listening to Dance a Little Side Step on the Best Little Bleephouse in Texas soundtrack.
When I looked at the photo, I thought what a quiet and attractive setting and a well-maintained residence; not the sort of place you'd expect such violence.
TooHot, I'd rather live in a clean late model mobile home like the one pictured than in a rickety 1920s frame shack behind Clark Cadillac. Not everyone can afford a modern Tyvex and plywood brick veneer on a street that leads to a lane that connects to a drive that has golf course frontage in Pinehurst.
And off topic, may I add that I hate the loss of the preview function?
Though I'm sure consumers eyes get weary, I suspect the headline should have read wary.
No, toda, there is not a difference between an illegal and an undocumented worker. And just to clarify, foreign nationals with green cards and visas are documented.
More US citizens commit crimes because there are more US citizens than there are illegals, at least for the time being.
Back in the fall, I ate at a local restaurant that had been highly touted in a local publication as being charming and serving marvelous food. The atmosphere was bleak, the service was indifferent (a bored high school age girl in jeans and tee shirt), and my chicken and dumplings turned out to be soup at entree prices. Why would I care if they folded? I had a similar experience a couple of years back when I read the hype in local media about a real "50s style diner" and it turned out to be exactly like a McDonald's dining area, right down to the molded, one piece attached plastic seats and tables, glaring lighting, and complete lack of atmosphere. We took one look and left. I'm not interested in supporting Mom and Pop businesses if they offer poorly executed ideas, lousy products, or high prices. The ones that are well run and fill a niche will continue to prosper.
Even though I'm only slightly more popular than cholera, will you still be bringing me that 55 gallon drum of Botox I always get? It's the least you can do now that I'm losing my private jumbo jet and that awful Boehner person took down the custom drapes I had made for the Speaker's Office and told me I could use them in my new office; the one that used to be a broom closet. How could this have happened to MEEEEEEE????!!!!

Entertaining memories, Geoff, and while you're absolutely right that nobody can drive on ice, you're mistaken about the name of those cars in Boston--Vista Cruisers were Oldsmobiles. The Buick version of that station wagon design was called a Sport Wagon.
The Olds station wagon featured in That 70s Show is a Vista Cruiser. When GM did a major redesign in 1973, the name was retained, but the cool "double decker" look was dropped in favor of a plain old sunroof.
This says it all, Ms Gilkerson!

I second that! I was so surprised when the power went out, it's no kind of weather to be without heat. Everyone involved in getting it back on in a short period of time deserves a big pat on the back.
