  1. I have no idea "what other thread" you're talking about. But, by all means, show me where I criticized political appointees for shutting down traffic. While you're at it show me where I've excused this incident.
  2. two questions: 1.) When did I excuse him for one of his appointees shutting down three lanes of traffic on the GW Bridge? 2.) When did did I criticize others for closing down three lanes of traffic on the GW Bridge?
  3. He was a wanna-be Harry Houdini, I suppose.
  4. Based on the prices from the Amazon vendors and half.com http://product.half.ebay.com/Klan-Destine-Relationships-A-Black-Mans-Odyssey-in-the-Ku-Klux-Klan-by-Daryl-Davis-1997-Hardcover/784245&tg=info), I'd guess the book is out of print. Not available in the Harford County Library. It looks like an interesting read, but I don't pay $119 (minimum) for any book. (well, except my daughter's college textbooks....what a rip-off) ETA - Barnes and Nobele has the Nook edition for $10.49. That's much better....http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/klan-destine-relationships-daryl-davis/1102215572
  5. Is "long" defined as "eight years"?
  6. You mean like this?: http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/191086-harkin-calls-for-more-rule-changes
  7. As Hillary said in that third video, 51 votes turns the Senate in to the House of Representatives. The Senate is more deliberative, and slows things down on purpose.
  8. Do these people not realize that people have memories? Or did their position "evolve"?

  11. I recently read an interesting book called "The Sports Gene" (http://www.amazon.com/The-Sports-Gene-Extraordinary-Performance/dp/1591845114/ref=tmm_hrd_title_0) In it, the author discusses how most people of European ancestory have a certain percentage of shared genes with a particular African tribe. Apparently, this one particular tribe was the one that set out and explored and settled what is now Europe. Interestingly, there is more genetic diversity among the tribes of Africa, than there is anywhere else in the world. Although, this far down the genetic tree from those original explorers, 14% seems like a lot more than statistical noise.
