Games People Play

I admit I get a bit confused about all of the election prediction action that happens a few days before an election. I mean, it can be a fun game I guess, but it's just a game. A month or two out an educated guess (yes, polls are most of the information you need but you can add a bit more information to the polls) can be useful for allocating resources, changing campaign strategies, etc..., but I'm really not gonna care on Wednesday morning which political prognosticator guessed correctly.

Oh Wow

Crunchy Dreher usually isn't my beat, but wow...

Either The Food Is Safe Or It Isn't

No one should support selling unsafe or possibly unsafe food, but if the food is fine it's fine.



Um What

What the hell is wrong with conservatives.

So Much Stupid

I feel bad for the singer who is just a kid but all the adults involved here really need to stop sucking on the lead paint chips.

The Math

Of course neighbors are concerned about parking. I just wish they could look at the empty lot and use their powers of spatial reasoning to realize that...the only way to put parking on the lot is to turn it into a parking lot.

Most people who worry about parking don't have their own off street parking. That's why they worry about it.

But, hey, empty lot.

The Evidence Is Not In

The most maddening thing about "school reformers" is that they insist that they're all about the evidence, and paying their patrons lots of money for the evidence, but then it's all LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU WHAT EVIDENCE.

Ok the most maddening thing actually is that a bunch of grifters are destroying public education. I've noticed a lot of eventheliberals have just sort of shut up about the whole thing lately.

Are you guys still up?

Happy Halloween, y'all.

Thursday Night

Rock on.

Thursday Evening

Be excellent to each other.

Happy Hour Thread

It's Friday, right?

Outsider Insidery

Interesting.

Um, David?

The fact that people think you're an asshole and treat you accordingly is not actually more important than, say, the widespread discrimination against African-Americans in our criminal justice system.


...oh the horror....

Coming Across The Border

I do love that everyone accepts that as code for "coming from Mexico."

Hi Canada!

Oh, Orange County

Drought isn't going to empty your fake lake.
Tampering with the lake's water can be a touchy subject for some longtime association members, who chafed at the suggestion of reducing or changing the lake levels.

"We love coming down here where there aren't too many people," said Carlos Lopez, an association member whose 4-year-old daughter, Dayleen, splashed in the water. "She's a fish. I'd have to take her down to the beach, and that's a pain."
