Re: Political Posts

Well, hey! Alabama managed to elect their first Democratic candidate to the Senate in over 20 years . . . WOO-HOO! Now let's hope there isn't some kind of a backlash. What he said about the sanctity of the family being greatest during the time of slavery was more than absurd, it was abominable. Whe...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Victor Hugo believed in universal public education, or at least his characters did, as a step toward utopia. Here is an interesting article about public schools in France banning phones:

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Here is a cool article about the origins of "ship" and "slash" -- apparently slash goes back decades before ship. Lots of examples from fandoms I never heard of.

Re: Political Posts

What Prisoner said. ARGH, it's true. I'm using Resist-Bot to fax and write to my congresspeople not that it's going to do any good. Texas is backward. Resist-Bot, what it is: you text in your name, address, and so on, and a message, and it sends it via fax or mail. Not a bot in the usual (spammy) se...

It's coming to Dallas and I'm going to get to go! That's great! Please share your experience afterwards, I'm curious about this production. I will certainly do so. It's next year, but even so we didn't get very good seats. Still, seeing it at all is going to be a thrill. I'll have to take some oper...

Re: Political Posts

Way too much to comment on all of it and I'm jumping in way late but I'll just tell my experience with getting a job in the US, which I think I've posted before but it is peripherally related to this discussion. I majored in linguistics. They told us with that degree we could get a job at one of two...

Re: 5NT - Fifth National Tour

I must be a worse fan than I thought. to my surprise I can identify every scene just by looking. Is this the current tour? If so, I'm going to miss it... ticket prices are right out roof.

Re: Prayer Requests

Houston is still swamped and the governor of Texas doesn't want to release any of the state emergency funds to them... Update: Houston has some money now. After sparring over whether the state should tap into its Rainy Day Fund for the city’s effort to recover from Hurricane Harvey’s devastating fl...

Re: Political Posts

I saw a post on facebook (admittedly, that is always a bad way to start a point) saying Kaepernick had been just sitting down until he spoke to a veteran about it, and decided to kneel as that was still showing respect while making a point. So if that is true, it's doubly idiotic. It's a true story...

Re: Political Posts

Re the shooting in Las Vegas. My personal beliefs as an American citizen: There should be background checks for buying guns and a waiting period, and training and licensing like for cars. This might cut back on background-noise gun deaths (like family disputes, suicides, road rage), but I don't thin...
