There is a story here, 4Martini.
(perhaps your user name is a clue? ;) )
Yes, I am sorry too.
It is a horrible, vicious disease.
I have lost both my sister and my brother to it.
I agree, he also has wonderful pictures, film to go with the script.
I used to be a television writer and producer in another life, and I keep thinking how much I would love to work with him on one...
I feel the same way, Louise.
I keep wondering what would have happened, what direction would the world have gone in (not just the US) if they, and in particular FDR and Eleanor had not come along....
I would love to spend New Years in Venice.
Maybe next year?
I like 2dogs' suggestion of Paris too. :yes:
I can say the worst NYE of my life was spent on a Royal Marine base in Malta.
I wish I could 'like' this a million times!
So great to hear from you, skydy.
Hoping you are feeling better soon.
Thanks so much for the update, Larkspur. Good to hear!!
I'm sorry to see that the contact info for the fundraising to help Moe and skydy was removed.
I didn't realize that I was breaking any...
I too disagree.
Jon Stewart cares deeply, he is intelligent, thoughtful and informed - and last I looked, his show is COMEDY.
He, unlike the others you mentioned, does not PRETEND to be a...
:no: It is a sad commentary on the state of the Republican Party and its members if Limbaugh is considered "the brains and spirit" behind them.
Another gripping episode tonight.
Not at all sure what you are trying to say.
The same Alice Roosevelt Longworth - who said she would rather vote for Hitler?
When the bottom line IS the bottom line, when the only motive is profit - then speed, and cutting corners will take precedence, and the losers in this equation will always be the animals....
I agree with both you and Louise.
I was struck by that last night too - how things got done because people worked together.
I hope all politicians are watching.
I agree, 'Scotland chose' and in doing so, all Scotland (and the rest of the UK, wins) Better Together, indeed.
It is ludicrous to refer to staying within the Union as "shackles". :rolleyes:
Live results here.
We should know around 2am our time.
I love Reza Aslan, brilliant man. I have not read 'Zealot' yet, but it is on my list. I bought it for my husband for Christmas, and he really liked it too.
It did ruffle some feathers, from *some*...
thanks for the updates, Larkspur. Hoping for a better day today for skydy.
I can't say it as well as this: https://www.facebook.com/bettertogetheruk/photos/a.321977804552534.75744.301783293238652/728822797201364/?type=1&theater
But I am so hoping for a 'NO' vote.
^^ I agree with most of what you have written, Anne, and so much of what TR did was farsighted.
I know it is what people did at the time, big game slaughtering.
But I don't admire it.
I'm with John Oliver, hoping for a 'NO' vote.
I have always admired Eleanor, but had no idea her early life was so painful.
Eleanor on her wedding day:
I had to run through my night barn check to make sure I was back in the house in time.
Yes, I shuddered at the sight of those knees.
Not to mention all the poor animals he slaughtered.
A great and remarkable man in so many ways, but I have a hard time reconciling the slaughter.
