“I read Jay Mohr's book about his time on SNL. It's been awhile but I think he - choosing his words carefully - said that he and the other SNL people from that time were "surprised" by Sandler's success.”

“Adam, you're absolutely correct. I just posted what a dictionary definition of "redskin." It started out being fairly neutral but grew to be known as being pejorative.”

“Checked a dictionary and found this: Redskin is first recorded in the late 17th century and was applied to the Algonquian peoples generally, but specifically to the Delaware (who lived in what is now southern New York State and New York City, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania). Redskin referred not to the natural skin color of the Delaware, but to their use of vermilion face paint and body paint. In time, however, through a process that in linguistics is called pejoration, by which a neutral term acquires an unfavorable connotation or denotation, redskin lost its neutral, accurate descriptive sense and became a term of disparagement.”

“Actually Freddy, if you have a refrigerator that is more than about 25 years old it almost certainly is full of fiberglass: that is how they all were insulated then, and how some still are. (Most today are insulated with cellular urethane.) There are standard tests for refrigerator materials to assure they do not transmit taste or odor to foods. All true.”

“Brenda, I can't cite the source because it's been awhile since I read it. People who study these things said that these sorts of measures would prevent the small amount of voter fraud that exists. But it would also prevent a larger number of legit voters from voting because of the problems caused. In the final analysis, it creates a bigger problem than it solves.”

“The Republicans here in PA tried to do the voter ID thing. It was shot down by a judge. In an editorial, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said this:

It’s little wonder. While crediting the government with good faith, Judge McGinley nevertheless painted a damning picture of its bureaucratic efforts to implement the law. Those who needed ID had to travel to one of just 71 centers in order to get it (five were in Philadelphia). Nine counties had no center at all; another nine were open just one day of the week. Half of Pennsylvania was left without ID centers operating five days of week.

If you were poor or old and didn’t have public transportation in a rural county, good luck getting ID. Even if people jumped through all the hoops erected to limit access to the polls, it was in the service of a faulty idea — as the court noted, in-person voter fraud is exceedingly rare and the commonwealth could cite no evidence for it.”

Jeff1958 on May 8, 2014 at 13:21:53

“"... and the commonwealth could cite no evidence for it."

Let me repeat, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania sited zero evidence of in-person voter fraud! Talk about a solution in search of a problem.”
