Re: Legal Eagle Question

In my view, she's legally obligated to return the money, and to a lesser extent morally obligated. But I'd fault a prosecutor who went after her unless she flaunted it - bragged about it publically, or went immediately on a massive and ostentatious spending spree. I'd think that they should need to ...

Re: FAIRWELL TO THE SPACE SHUTTLE

The space shuttle IS a brilliant description of government inefficiency in action. And it is a good cautionary tale for scientific technocracy boosters out there. The space program is often one of those things that prompts people to look at government as being full of experts who Know How to Solve t...

Re: The most tremendously epic music video ever.

It has finally supplanted Bonnie Tyler's previous epic awesomeness . The ICP video for unintentional awesomeness. Not the Sagan video, which, well, I couldn't tell you what it supplanted for just genuine awesomeness, because I can't think of a music video that was sufficiently awesome to have ever h...

I wish I was better with the written word so I could offer a more eloquent defense of my age cohort. Unfortunately, far too many "Millennials" are not skeptical enough of government power, and that is a problem. Unfortunately, far to many "Gen-Xers" are a bunch of dour grumpy-poos who would rather ...

Re: What's New at the Bijou?

Is it still a property rights issue if they tag a publicly-owned building, such as a courthouse or public parking garage? Well, it's probably a property rights issue if you steal a bus, so I'd say so. The government, if it is to exist, has to have a corporate right to own and manage property. We ca...

If you can reconcile "great" with "reenacting a popular film or television scene with dolls and then adding a fart as the punchline" then feel free... you are so wrong on this that if you were holding a sign that said "correct" it would actually rewrite itself as "incorrect". *Stands next to dhex a...

playing Madness instead of "Losing My Religion" over and over and over actually gives the guy a modicum of originality.

Re: Grylliaders' Photo Depot After Dark

It's the brow and jawlines. And the 'hiding the frank-and-beans-area' pose combined with the hiding-the-adam's-apple-area choker.

However, there's pretty much no doubt that the cleavage is organically grown, not factory-farmed.

Re: What's New at the Bijou?

No argument on the private property issue. I'm unpersuaded, however, that goes to the question whether the creation is art or not. Which is just to say there are separate issues involved; one set aesthetic and another set moral. Some graffiti I've seen is certainly artistic and requires some talent...
