There's nothing easier to direct than light. Any light from Target Field that's going UP into people's windows is misdirected. Maybe the field's electricians should go look at that marvelous new invention, the Lamp Shade, and see how easy it is to have the light go where you want it and stop at the edge of that.

I remember when I was a kid -- when my folks would drive down to Minneapolis from upstate, the Foshay was the first thing we'd see to tell us we'd nearly arrived! You could see that thing from MILES away.

Then later on there was always the Weather Ball on top of it to tell us what was happening. Not that we could see it from home, of course, but WCCO would always tell us "The Weather Ball is Green, No Change Foreseen!" or "The Weather Ball is White, there's snow tonight!" Love the...

He just wrote it as a sort of reflex action to reading anything even mildly unfavorable to the GOP. Just a little dribble of what used to be sound and fury, certainly signifying nothing.

"Evidence", like most facts, is anathema to the current Republican/Teabagger party. Innuendo and outright lies have taken its place, fueled by the ever-reliable Fox "News" propaganda machine.

If you run on a platform of denying some of your constituents basic rights that the others enjoy, I can't imagine why anyone but the most mean-spirited would vote for you. 'Course, maybe that's her target constituency.

"Col. North emerged a hero from those proceedings."

Only to the most partisan and least-informed among us. He engaged in criminal conduct and tried to wrap himself in a flag to excuse it.

So just who is it who finds this commercial so appealing? Obviously nobody here. It's just stupid and certainly has nothing to do with anything I care about in politics.

Just tell 'em it's TRUVIA. In your coffee. Good grief.

"Like the financial crisis, Obama inherited a mess in Iraq and made it worse."

Hello? Try getting your news from more than one source. In case you hadn't noticed, the Dow is up to 17000 for the first time in history - twice what it was when the GOP walked away from the crash they drove us into. If you think the present day is worse financially than 2008 I have to wonder what you're smoking.
