Rib tips, baby! This is Talledega, and Ricky Bobby reigns! »
I agree. And when our inner city schools are "equal" to their suburban counterparts, I will be happy. Until then, we need Prop 2. »
OMG, yes! I almost forgot about Christopher Pettiet. Another beautiful boy who was gone too soon. Horrible! »
Saturday evening mass is casual. Sunday morning is dressier (unless it's a 7a service in which case jeans are okay). »
I don't know if it's a race thing (your reference to white men) or if it's just a testosterone thing. Women don't seem to have the same drive. I can't imagine a slew of powerful women getting together for drug-fueled sex parties with underage girls. That has probably happened, but it certainly isn't an epidemic. Even… »
"Tanks need to be the appropriate size and style to properly contain the girls." I think that's where the problem lies. What some may think is "appropriate" might be vastly different from another person. »
Enjoy these clips! With a 90% termination rate for the prenatal diagnosis of Downs, we just won't be seeing people with Downs very often. That makes me sad. »
Agreed. I hear people talking constantly about programs on television, and I can't fathom how they sit through that drivel. I can hardly watch 10 minutes before turning the station to PBS or HGTV. Like Suburgatory, Two and a half men and others, it's like it's been written for complete derelicts. I'm dumbfounded as to… »
Cue the "LIBERAL BIAS OF ACADEMIA" argument.
That means, pull up "LIBERAL BIAS OF MEDIA" arguments. Swap "academia" for "media." Feign outrage. Wave flag. Say "Constitution" five times. Build "they'll take away our guns" straw man. Done! »
I have a touch of the crazy. I admit it. I remember watching the Newtown reports play by play. I couldn't look away. I remember the reports saying, "Two gunman. Two gunman." Then, hours later, it was "Ooops. Only one gunman. The other guy was either an off-duty tactical police office who just happened to be tromping… »
Waldenbooks FTW! I was a "key holder" in 1997—Goosebumps was at its peak of popularity. Meridian Mall! I haven't been back to that mall since I quit. »
I have to admit it—I didn't like Ulysses. I was stunned when the NY Times named it the #1 novel. It's not that it is too difficult. I like tough lit; I can read Faulkner all day long. I'm just not a fan of James Joyce. Maybe I'll 1-star it. »
I'm a big, big fan of the "You are worth the wait" campaign. That is so much better than sending the message: "Girl, if you do it, you'll be a dirty ho that everyone thinks is gross."
I feel the same way about the pro-life movement. Their "Life is a beautiful choice" campaign is so much better than "Abortion=murder."
I guess I … »
Bette Midler has a good point. Shame is what kept me honest. I wasn't afraid of getting into trouble; I feared disappointing/embarrassing my family. Shame—let's bring it back. »
