This is good indeed! I think it will have to be a national law to be most effective.

(I'm glad you caught the article. When I saw it I tried to email you but it came back undeliverable -new address??)

Thanks, M-L; no - the email should be OK...??

Wow ... that's good news! And a strong stand for a politician, too.

Enh. It;s good, but barely. He hid this in a Sunday afternoon announcement, after allowing this much anger to spread, without thinking about it initially. Plus, he half-blamed his wife for not saying it was a bad idea. (As far as I know, she is not a politician. If she is, then it's half fair, but also not: he should not have been so stupid himself, it's not just women who can imagine this.)

Give the guy some credit, he's taken a stand plus he'll probably take a good deal of heat for it. But it's the only one with any integrity behind it. I was suprised and pleased.

No, I will not give him any credit for this. He did the entire thing incredibly poorly, from start to finish: he eventually went to the only move that meant he had a viable political future, but that's about it.

Thinking again about moving North.

Why do those who are liberal fight each other for not being liberal enough? Take any chink you can, the conservatives are trying to stop all freedoms and get the rest of us fighting each other.

Expecting honor among politicians is like expecting fish to ride bicycles.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
