Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

California just locked down hard again. I am in the middle of plans to meet my Sonoma friend for a week in the Great Smoky Mountains. This will probably keep her from flying out - due to her work restrictions. My mom and sister live in San Diego and all of the restaurants spent a ton of money to re...

Re: Grover Norquist now!

I really have major problems with the whole system of plea bargaining. How many innocent people have pleaded guilty in order to avoid having their lives completely ruined? More of the story. Though I was 100% innocent, my friend was not innocent. He was actually guilty of the action they accused me...

Anyone looked into Italian ancestry passports as featured on CBS a year ago?

That is all.
Is that a Canadian thing to put fries on the Gyro? I've never once seen that in Chicago. On a hot dog, yes occasionally, but never on a gyro.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

My latest crop of books have all arrived. The typeface of the paperback version of A Random Walk Down Wall Street is crooked. Especially all the pages on the left side when the book is open. :-\ I have a paperback version of the 10th edition that I bought way back when, so I decided to take a look ...

In this morning's news, Washington's governor Inslee has declared that schools will reopen in stages, in a manner sensitive to social inequities. White children will be the last to go back. I'm kidding you not.
Once again, how is this legal?
