“Felony arrests can themselves be mistakes. Arrests that do not lead to adjudication might as well be expunged quickly once wrongdoing is shown to not have happened.”

“But even the television shown in Seoul is already obsolete in South Korea.

One country accepts some whimsy to humanize itself; the other apparently tolerates no individuality.

Reputedly, South Korean authorities can turn a captured North Korean agent in two days. The trick: a trip to a South Korean supermarket.”

“We must beat the cheat. We must elect Democrats to Congress in R+4 and R+5 districts, if necessary.

These antics demonstrate the contempt that the GOP has for science. Ideology is even greater truth than objective reality. Such has been done before -- in the Third Reich and the Soviet Union.”

“Sure -- industrial workers working 70 hours a week with 40-year lifespans, children getting early starts in factories and mines instead of attending school, strikers being mowed down...

Your dream, including the right of employers to exact unpaid shifts of overtime with firing as a consequence of refusal, is a nightmare that few wish a return to.

We have socialism in America -- but it is socialism for the rich.”

27. Your electronics are obsolete, except that you did get a Blu-Ray player and a large-screen flat TV so that you could see things better. .

28. Your favorite movies are older than you are.”

“Just like western Belarus and western Ukraine in 1939 after the dismemberment of Poland -- a hasty, nearly-unanimous referendum with predictable results.

If Putin were to take over Alaska, he would probably get similar results in a referendum that called for severing all ties to the USA and requesting incorporation into the Russian Federation. That suggests not so much how Alaskans would feel about Russia as the techniques used in most Soviet and Russian elections since 1917.”

“House cats differ from leopards in only one important respect -- size. Just be thankful that you are much bigger than the cat so that you can admire some of the most formidable predators that have ever lived. Tiger or house cat, the difference is only size and what goes with it.”

“Those cats and dogs probably know each other.

Some of the dogs are not much bigger than the cats. The difference is that the cats have sharper claws and are willing to use them on a hapless dog.”
