Whole council meetings spent on abortion, daylight savings time, and the oxford comma.
At least while we're pedanting out on the oxford comma, we're not passing legislation.

Also, mayo is both a condiment and an ingredient and infinitely superior to Miracle Whip.

I’m still interested in how this shakes out with the ‘61 treaty and nobody seems to either know or care. Including, I suspect, most of Trudeau’s government.

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

He’s technically a US person as he has a green card. If we get to claim universal jurisdiction, other people do too. As I understand it, it's a little unusual to go into an embassy, vanish, and then turn up dead, even if you are a citizen of that country. The story I read earlier today was that the...

Re: Petty annoyances

I lurve it when people bitch about something that hasn't been done and you tell them you are waiting on info from them.
