“Life in solitary for the principal, and continuous live feed video from his cell to his successor's office.
Bullying will stop.”

“Question to you, why are you singling out the principal? Do you think he was the one that was doing the bullying for all these years? Or have I misread your comment? If I have misread it, my apologies.”

“There was never anything in the description of the iPhone-viewed video that could not have been duplicated by a couple of video school grads in a month with the necessary apps. All they needed was a plausible front-end guy to show it to the Star and Gawker bloggers, and they found a good one.
There was no intention to hand over the video, as the compositing artifacts would have been obvious in the data from a few frames.”
“This is false 'memory' only in the most primitive sense of the word. I'd rather it were sold under the claim "false aversion-association".
There's no way this experiment can be scaled to the level of complexity of such conceptual false memories as 'witness recall ', in humans, as the story's text would imply. They are qualitatively different kinds of 'memory'.”

“I was wondering how to articulate that observation to question the claims of the researchers.”
But I'm just glad it's not the same picture of James Clapper. After a week I would probably be having serious nightmares, all of them true.”

“Don't worry, I have the sense we'll snap that Clapper's face out of him soon. I agree. The sooner the better. But remember they are just representatives, and they breed like cockroaches. So a lot more spaying will be necessary.”
“"Whenever someone involved in the rough and tumble of Washington decides to move on, there is speculation in various quarters about the “real reason.” But when I say that it is time for my family, nothing could be more real than that."
Real Reason? Snowd under? Leaks?
Time to retire and join a real government spy agency: Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH. Really, folks. You can't make this stuff up.)”

“And their stock dropped to $16.50 per share today.”
Having failed to verify their informants were in fact drug-dealers, and checking with expert professional digital compositors to see if their description could have been matched with a phone-sized video, an ordinary amateur using basic tools show one method of making a 'Rob Ford' crack scene.
Obviously, the finished product is not going to fool anyone, it's the method/concept that is outlined. With experienced professionals with all the tools and enough time, there's every reason to think that the Star reporters have profoundly come short of the mark needed for proper investigative journalism.”

“You haven't seen the video either, so how would you know?”

“You conservative types are relentless in denial. And the $95K gift to Duffy could have been a
'banking error' or proceeds from winning a beauty contest, and mulhooney behest of
bales of cash from a guy he allegedly never met is an oversite....sheesh.”
