“I am so glad to see that it appears likely that Miss Waston will survive the often rocky transition from "Child Star" to "Actor" without the trauma and drama that too often plays a big role in the lives of those who came to celebrity status while young.
She seems to have a head on her shoulders and more than self-centered fluff housed within that (remarkably lovely) head.
And YES! she was wearing undies- reasonably prim, not intended for public view, neutral coloured undies.... most celebrity panty flashes seem a bit staged, this seems to have been an honest flub.... and ladies, who amongst us has never had such a moment?”
“Wow, that's revolting. The Dutch one isn't offensive or belittling. It's simply a joke on coincidental timing and misunderstood situations. The BK one is down right horrific. Let's start sexualising children, why don't we!”

“Way to teach children where women stand, eh? Mothers should write and say they will NEVER get a burger for their kids at that place again.”
“My mother and I are wondering what is about to become public that would have forced her out if she did not resign.”

“The RNC has been ridiculed mercilessly, many times by their own kind, since they tapped Sarah Palin be the second most powerful person in America.
Wow, just writing that was terrifying!
The RNC knows to have a snowball's chance in hell come 2010 they have to put as much distance btween them and the Killa form Wasilla as possible, so they told her to resign and STAY OFF THE AIR FOR GOD'S SAKE!
I assure you, this was not Sarah Palin's decision.”
“Emerging consensus: The Palins acquired the materials for their home by padding the bill for the Wasilla sports complex and the Feds aren't having it. Seems more likely than Dirty Sanchez' idea about a new pregnancy.”

“She has a "dear dear" friend.”

“Living in a house that was built with bribes might be it.”
“By that logic, *any* employee who marries after becoming eligible for benefits, or who procreates/adopts sould also be censured and stripped of basic human and civil rights for the "sin" of potentially affecting his/her employer's bottom line.”

“In memory of Herb Caen (if you don't know, google him- great reading), I pay the toll for the car behind me every single time I cross the GG bridge....granted, this is only 3 or 4 times a year, but it's something that always makes *my* day brighter.”
“Oh, I've been paying attention.... It just *still* startles me to realize anew that for the first time in my lifetime, America has a president that actually inspires! I'm still choking up from time to time at the very idea of a leader I feel is worth following.”

“Me, too. I'm waiting to hear what sort of impact Michelle is having on young women and girls.”
“Except for the belt,(I agree with another poster- it's awful with this sweater) I'd say that
(a) She's dressed perfectly for the event- approachable and familiar and kind of fun is a good tone for addresseing a pack of children.... she has great instincts for what mood to convey.
(b) to repeat someone else's inquiry- where IS the WGAS option?”
“Rush needs to watch his mouth- he's starting to annoy people who can easily beat the snot out of him, though I get the impression that Mr. Murphy values dignity too much to act on it, should he have such an impulse.”
“Aww- You just brought a small tear to my eye- I assumed I would be the only one who thought "RockMed could've handled this without any trauma or drama".... nice to know my tribe has not died out or assimilated completely*smile*”
“Tasering this guy was totally excessive- he presented no danger, he certainly had no concealed weapons on his person, he was simply nude.... I agree that, in this context, nudity was inappropriate, but there was no need for that degree of force, he could easily have been subdued without an electrical jolt- and I do not understand why this is considered funny.”

“It is funny because the fool asked for it. Getting tasered was not the cop's decision, it was the fool's decision.”
“I loved the election night coverage- I was bouncing between networks all night, but the moment it was called, I went back to where I knew my joy would be reflected (while dialing my mom to cry at her at intercontinental rates;) )”
“Ok, if we're going to boil it down to business terms- This site represents a transaction, or series of transactions, that specifically precludes either party taking or expecting any responsibility beyond the purely economic and sexual favours on which the transaction hinges. ... no shared troubles, no shared goals, and no mutual support for one another's individual trials and triumphs
Truly a matter of "incompatability".... His income and her "patability"
Marriage, conversely, is a contract that provides quite specifically for the rights and obligations of both parties... the law that is concerned with this contract is, of course, mostly of a financial nature- providing some security and equity in the event that the contract is broken.
Marriage is also a social contract- one that presumes that both parties will act in good faith to fulfill the terms of the contract- to love, honor and cherish in sickness and in health, in times of want and times of plenty.... and to back up one another's social fibs about having previous obligations when an undesirable social event looms.....
I'm not the trophy material I was 15 years ago, but if you asked my husband, he'd say I'm still a prize- and the opinion is mutual.... No "sugarbaby" or "Sugardaddy" can claim such security.”
“If it cannot be clearly explained to a reasonably bright 9 year, it is nonsense... I'm a reasonably bright 40 year old and I'm seeing no language that protects organic farming or community farmer's market, so, if that language is there, it is buried and in such dense legalese as to be effectively meaningless- A right is only a right if one can excercise it without spending one's life and life savings in courtrooms to prove that the right exists.”
