    It wasn't very effective. I got stuck in DFW for an extra 2 hours because my flight to my final destination embarked without me (after a 30min wait on the tarmac for a gate to be available).

    As broken as my shoulder, I'm afraid. I had Baylor in the Final Four and Iowa St in the Elite 8. I've bet dinner on this so I need the rest of my bracket to stay alive.

    Except that it's not "just" Christians. There's antisemitic Muslims and atheists (famously, Voltaire) as well.

    To add to that... there is something insidious about hating Jews that seems to defy...

    This may be a naive question, but why is it always the Jews? What is it about antisemitism that makes it so inextinguishable?

    I am dismayed and disheartened by the article in the OP-- that 2...

    Horse is 11yo with a scattered work history. Suspected use of gadgets in his past. Does not seem to handle pressure well (gets quick/runs off when asked to work harder). Should...

    I'm a bit (HA) introverted and have to work in an open-office environment with many extroverts. I love me some lonely riding time.
