Re: Should Jeopardy! end its partnership with National Geographic?

One would have a hard time convincing a capitalist (which I believe Vanya identifies as) of that. Your statement pretty much is the left-right difference in a nutshell, one on the left such as us would indeed bemoan the loss of a public resource, one on the right such as Vanya would encourage priva...

Re: Should Jeopardy! end its partnership with National Geographic?

...not one peep of criticism for those at Nat Geo who sold (out) to Murdoch in the first place. Au contraire --while the sale on Mr. Murdoch's end was just Murdoch being Murdoch, on the Nat Geo end it seems the board sold out the organization's principles. There must be some special circle of hell ...

Re: Should Jeopardy! end its partnership with National Geographic?

Maybe NatGeo will turn into a hardcore sex channel so gradually, we won't even notice. Indeed, you didn't notice in 1997 when Nat Geo partnered with Fox to launch Nat Geo's cable channel, which has been Nat Geo's most profitable venture. And while you liberal morons trash Murdoch, not one peep of c...

Re: Should Jeopardy! end its partnership with National Geographic?

Is this satire? How would National Geographic get political? Is Koch Industries going to put 40 full-page ads in every issue? Will there be a miniseries on NatGeo on young-earth creationism, or the abiogenic origin of oil? Will Jeopardy have to air on Fox now? A few major conglomerates control virt...

Re: Reretaken Down

Is it ethical to use another company's website for a personal announcement? Classless, maybe, but not unethical, unless he stands to gain from it. I watched his CNN quiz, and I would define ethics much more narrowly. Fairness, compassion, and hurting someone's feelings have nothing to do with ethic...

Re: Reretaken Down

With all the ugliness in comments on news/political sites, I've appreciated that there was very little political talk and even less nastiness here. I have strong opinions of my own, but I can manage not to wish anyone dead on or off-line. Also, Reagan was 16 days shy of 70 at inauguration, and John...

Re: Reretaken Down

Bush's campaign manager just resigned, and he's been telling donors that it's "not on life support". Having studied politics while elementary school passed by, it's pretty easy to say that when a Bush family member politician says something you know not to believe it. Fixed that for ya.

It's ironic Mormons are outraged about sex on TV. You'd think it would help with their ultimate goal, which is to have as many children as possible.

How is it "doubly redundant"?

What does doubly redundant mean? Los Angeles Angels is just redundant (not really because Angeles is Spanish).

If you can find a named desert in Lebanon, that might help your case a bit more. Just because they don't call it a desert doesn't mean it's not desert. Parts of the country receive considerably less than 10" of rain per year. But mainly I'm pissed I didn't think of Lebanon. Well, Beirut gets 80 day...
