Re: “A Curb on “Anything-Goes” Politics?

Please allow me to clear up this ludicrous talking point that the Wilkins camp is using to deflect from their candidate's inability to condemn misleading voters: We had no idea we were on that ballot. We have never paid anything to M. Latroy Williams. He has approached us about purchasing a place on his ballot but we have never bought.

Re: “Coming Soon: Stacey Campfield: THE MUSICAL!!!

You know, as noble as I believe it is to make fun of this idiot, I also can't help the feeling that we are giving him what he wants. He is probably one of the most famous b-listers in the political world. Isn't it time we just stop feeding the beast?

Re: “Cold in July is a joyful throwback to 1980s thrillers.

I've been a Joe R. Lansdale fan for a long time. I copy edited one of his short story collections for e-book release and I still speak to him on Twitter on occasion. I've been looking forward to this for a very long time.

Re: “Kardashian Politics

I was unaware that the definition of promscuous is now so broad that sex with one woman applies. The fact is that if your life has been so ridiculously boring that there is zero chance that there is a chind of yours lurking out there, then you are the one that has made the mistakes. Because on your deathbed, you will not be saying "I really wish I had spent more time firing off angry judgmental missives on message boards."

Re: “Kardashian Politics

Henry, that was not the point. The point is that we have seen the definition of scandal expanded to the point where the term is applied without legal, moral, or ethical wrongdoing. If Teapot Dome happened today, the media would be far more hung up on reporting Harding's affair with a young woman than about the wholesale corruption that followed as his administration paid back the costs of that coverup.

Re: “Inequality’s the Issue

Haha! Not the first time you and I have been mistaken for one another. Not a big deal. I just like you to have proper credit for your work.
