Comment Season 4 of The Wire (Score 2) 725 725

Explored this in great detail. It also shows just how multi-faceted the problem is. Not just limited to liberals or republicans or unions or gun-toting texans.

IMO the biggest problem is us. While many problems exist, there are many decent solutions to them but require major change which generally speaking we fear. How many times have you heard a political candidate say something that you agree with, and say to yourself "man that's a great idea, too bad they're not electable." Why aren't they electable, because they want to bring change* when people really want a calm status quo.

*The current president doesn't count. His version of change is "not W" which isn't bad in itself, it's just not the change we need.

Honestly, 77% based on screen name alone was the most interesting result to me.

Submission + - Toshiba Execs Declare HD DVD Not Dead Yet->

Lucas123 writes: "HD DVD proponent Toshiba remains defiant that its format will not succumb to the mounting tsunami of support for Blu-ray Disc, even though Hollywood's biggest seller of DVD's — Warner Bros — announced two days ago it would no longer support HD DVD in favor of exclusively backing Blu-ray Disc. Akio Ozaka, head of Toshiba America Consumer Products, said at CES today that he was surprised by Warner's decision. Jodi Sally, vice president of marketing for Toshiba's digital audio and video products said: "It's difficult for me to read all the pundits declare that HD DVD is dead. Clearly the events of the last few days have led you to that conclusion but we've been declared dead before.""
