Okay. So I'm going back and forth a lot between our current/old apartment and the new place, which we're painting and stuff before we move in. It's on my same street and about nine blocks from here. There are a few different ways to drive. There are two two-way arterial roads you can take the whole...

Re: Orange is the new President

Even if Cruz and Bush pandered to the same kind of elements that love Trump in the general election, they're politicians. They wouldn't actually follow through on their rhetoric. Just as they wouldn't really get into a trade war with China, or threaten to end NAFTA or leave NATO or any of that. The...

I believe there is a word for a real person portrayed in fiction, but given another name. eg: The story has a 'fictional' person who unmistakably is Barbara Streisand or Donald Trump, but they are given another name.
