“"Incognito" describes the kind of enemy he's been to Martin. The language may be what we've come to expect from the National Foul Language franchise, but the ill-will between the foul words is hard to dismiss.”

“This is EXACTLY why privatization of public safety and services doesn't work. Rural Metro (a contradiction in terms, at that) used the Purcells as an advertisement. This almost smacks of extortion for the rest of the county's residents: "Pay us off. Or burn. It's your choice."

On a totally unrelated note, when I read the headline about arsons rising, I recalled reading somewhere that some arsonists become firefighters for the thrill.
One does wonder if the two items have any correlation.”

“It works for EMS and waste management in rural areas pretty well. It isn't extortion though, they did not start the fire.”

“That's pretty rich considering how much money fundamentalist evangelists make--and what happens to their empires. Tammy Faye, Pat Robertson, Rick Warren, Jimmy Swaggart, John Paulk, Jeff Gannon, and oh, let's not forget Westboro Baptist, and an astounding number of Catholic priests and the hierarchy that protected them for so long.”

“"Because time-off is time not spent productively working..." was written by someone who's never had to clean up after people driving themselves through a succession of 14-hr days on the assumption that the work they did while tired, sleepy, or sick was good enough. Let alone as good as the work done when they were taking care of themselves.”

“"The particular lawsuit in which Klein appears as witness has been moving at glacial speed through federal district court in San Francisco."

As fast as that? There must still be hope, then.

As for tech companies not knowing how their data is being "shared"--stolen? appropriated under some new application of eminent domain?--that is unbelievable. That's only possible if the IT department of a technology company is itself incompetent. I don't believe that they are.”

“Rape is about power. It has nothing to do with "sexual" attractiveness, but the need of a weak man to find someone who he can use to prove he is "strong" in at least one way.

You are right about something else, though. Being able to reclaim space physically is a form of assertion, and being fat does that decisively. I don't think anyone decides to get fat to do that--but it does make it harder to rape.”

“There is a pretty good correlation. Eating is a comfort activity that soothes anxiety and fear. Some rape victims commit suicide within 2 years of surviving the immediate crime because they can't live with the nightmares and the flashbacks. To eat is a real-time activity that reinforces "you're here now, you aren't there." So many people have no compassion or understanding--especially the people who claim that obesity is a problem of the obese only. People who are so concerned about "national epidemic of obesity" would do well to link it to anxiety disorders and victim-of-crime status. When you link all three factors, the picture--and the problem--look very different.”

Jeffries is sorry that uncool, ugly people (ie, not rich teenagers flunting abs in ads) noticed that he thinks they're crap? I'm sure he is. That, friends, is the anatomy of non-apology. For the anatomy of a real apology, look here:

“Exactly so. For example, The "Spanish" Inquisition actually started in France; Raymond VI of Toulouse was one of the leaders not falling exactly in line with Rome, and the Church stirred up his political rivals. That story repeated over and over. When Henry VIII broke with Rome, he had three centuries of papal tension to draw on--and even then it was his daughter who swore "not to seek to cut windows into men's hearts."

"Religious" wars had more to do with the transfer of wealth in the dawn of the making of Western nations, than with "religion."”
