You may mean that Feinstein isn't a congresswoman.
The names are confusing.
Congress has 2 houses, the Senate and the House of Representatives.
The people from the Senate are called senators.
The people from the House are called either congressmen or reps.
The only title a senator has is "Senator Smith".
While reps. get two.
Even though a senator is a member of a part of Congress they are not called congressman.
Even though they represent people/states they are not called represntatives.
Just to confuse things even more the word congressman isn't really capitalized unless it has a name after it.
The same with representative and senator, unless of course you are naming 1 of the 2 halves of Congress.
Congress as a whole/branch though is capitalized.
I.e. Congress or congressman or Congresswoman Feinstein.
And everything is capitalized at the start of a sentance.
And of course you may mean something else entirely and this whole post can be ignored.
This is one of several news I got here on Slashdot today in which the summary has nothing to do with the subject. Lately, most of the subjects are simply made up, to attract views.
I've had enough with Slashdot.
Do any distros use regular megabyte for 2^20 be default?
No weird mebibyte stuff.
Frankly, I don't think most folks outside of the U.S. pay much attention to us or cares...unless Obama is shooting a missile up their butts.
Actually, you're quite wrong. The rest of the world is a lot more aware of what happens in the US than the opposite.
There will come a time when everything is illegal, and it will be left to the police or the government to decide who to prosecute.
This way we can have the illusion of living in a democracy but in fact we'll be under the paw of an arbitrary power. Of course the normal guy who doesn't stand out will never notice it, but those who bother the rich and powerful will be quickly and effectively silenced, in a completely legal way. It's already happening, for example with patents and copyright.
Wasn't this how Egypt was ruled for decades?
Isn't this a reality with illegal immigrants in Europe and the US? Everybody knows they exist, everybody pretends they don't, they don't have any rights or any political weight.
Has anybody watched Lars Von Trier's "Dogville"?
Last year on PI day I went out to lunch at 1pm
It took about an hour to eat - I could have film developed or glasses made.
Being Pi day I of course got the wonderful gooey food.
It was delivered to my table at 1:58 so I waited a minute to eat it.
I started at 3-14 1:59.
It just coincindence though.
Unfortuately there are no more Perkins near me anymore.
All wrong. Russia is not "embracing democracy". The Soviet Union and China never tried (or wanted) to conquer the world. Unlike the US, by the way.
Don't project your own perversions unto others.
That's one way of looking at it.
Some of the things I hate the most are unwillingness to learn and resistance to change. In a previous job I had, I worked with several people who were terrible engineers. People like that attempt to compensate their lack of skills by working very long hours.
As an example, they'd spend days doing horribly repetitive tasks. I'd spend a few hours writing a script and then those tasks would complete in minutes. And doing it all over again was just a matter of re-running the script. A few more minutes.
Guess who management loved the most. I'll give you a clue, it wasn't me. I remember having a heated argument with my then manager about lack of methodology and tools, and then he replied to me: You don't need any of that fancy stuff, anything can be done if you work long and hard enough.
