Growing up nearby (Dana Point) the plant was affectionately known as the Dolly Parton museum. I imagine kids today have a more modern and equally inappropriate name. I for one will be sorry to see such a beautiful landmark be torn down. It will certainly make future vacations to the Grand Tetons mountains more poignant. --El

The moon, eh? This will be important when we get around to mining the moon into a block of Swiss cheese for whatever mineral riches it possesses. I predict China will be the first, and we Americans will follow soon after they have opened the door.

cheese is not at all popular in China. i predict the French will pioneer this mining effort, or maybe the Swiss... not sure.

Seems to me that the creator of that site is shortsighted in how he or she confirms who the assassin is. Namely, that the assassin has to be able to specify the date of death prior to the death.

in other words this could be seen as an office pool (with no actual buy-in): guess when controversial government official X is assassinated!

Frankly, Sanjuro is either a nutcase, or a honeypot. In either case, it would be best to avoid him.

so you think that paying money (under real or false pretenses) to have someone killed is something to be avoided? your wisdom is inspiring.

Not only has he managed to get every American health care, but he has also made us virtually energy independent.

Way to go, Obama!

no, no, no. Obama only gets the blame for high gas prices. You absolutely cannot credit his administration for energy independence or low gas prices or anything positive that happens in the U.S. That's heresy.

Strangely, neither party, once in power, actually reduces spending. Neither party is especially interested in changing those programs that actually affect the budget.

Not quite true. Govt. spending under Obama is way down and falling; especially as a percentage of GDP (the measure that matters). The concern at the moment is we are reducing spending too quickly given the current state of the economy and the fact that we've been in a liquidity trap since 2008. What i find especially galling is that a GOP congress rubber stamped billions (trillions? i'm not sure) for wars and tax cuts under Bush and now sees the need to gut food stamps and shut down the government. They run up the tab and then scream about how entitlements for poor people are killing us. It is time for Boehner to go.

Despite all appearances, your boss is a thinking, feeling, human being.
