"Sheriff Robin Cole says people can't usually shoot themselves more than once."

This reminds me of a piece Esquire magazine (remember them?) ran many years ago in their annual Dubious Achievement Awards feature. This feature poked fun at news stories from the preceding year, among other things.

The headline: Man drills seven holes in head with power drill ... and lives!

The story: Man dies after drilling eight holes in his head.

The late, great Arthur C. Clarke said it best: “The greatest tragedy in mankind’s entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.”

So, an auxiliary archbishop "asks for forgiveness for the church's shameful failures of the past."

The past? Really? How about the church's ongoing shameful behavior and continued cover-ups going on RIGHT NOW?

It reminds me of what William Faulkner wrote: The past is never dead. It's not even past.

Good.

I hope the law can change the lives of these children and give them back some of their stolen childhoods.

Rolf, Jay asked you for the sources of the numbers you have been posting here.

I hope you can eventually do that.

Also, does any cost estimate for nuclear-generated electricity include the amortized cost of storing the radioactive waste for upwards of 10,000 years?

Let me answer my own question: No, they do not.

Because no economist or government analyst can even begin to estimate such a cost because ... I mean, how can they?

No single government on earth...

Great to see it. We'll see if it's sincere if in future statements he revises his figures or repeats this exaggerated number.

Also, regarding the dig at the end of his apology: Yet another month (that's six in a row, BTW) of adding more than 200,000 jobs to the economy.

Gosh darn that President O'Bummer and his job-killing over-regulation!

When will our national nightmare end?

Juries do what juries want to do ... and predicting what a jury is going to do is a fool's game.

That what the law professors tell you day in and day out of law school, and why settling cases without going to a jury is so popular with all lawyers, whether defending or prosecuting.

... from the Center of the American Experiment?

I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you!

Posted on 07/17/14 at 08:49 am in response to Whatever happened to the gay-marriage backlash?

... is really, really good, right?

Anyway, why doesn't President Romney just push a bill through the GOP-controlled Congress that outlaws gay marriage, eh?

Is he afraid of backlash, too?

If I were running for office, I would proudly wear my NRA "F" rating as a badge of pride.
