Ann Althouse is mocking a woman annoyed by a man who damaged her car.
I’m with the woman (and George Costanza). It is an almost intrinsically inconsiderate and selfish act to kill yourself. The only way to do so in a considerate manner is to make sure all your affairs are in order, with clear instructions, and to not make a mess to clean up, or leave yourself where someone, particularly a loved one, will be traumatized by finding you (e.g., disappear into the wilderness and do it there). When you do it in such a way as to endanger others or cause property damage, I have zero sympathy for you, whether you survive or not. There is a big problem in the railroad business of people who deliberately step in front of trains, with no thought about the injuries and damage they may cause, or the life-long nightmares and needless soul searching for the engineer. I don’t care how unhappy you are, there is no excuse for this.
Man, between Oler and all of the trolls and idiots, the comments section over there has become unreadable.
A waiting-room letter. From this doctor.
I don’t think the donkeys realized just how high the voltage was on that rail. But they’re going to find out in two months.
Remember all of the fools on the left who said that the reason that the Republicans took over in 1994 wasn’t because of the attempt to pass health care, but because the attempt failed? Well, we’re about to see if their latest experiment confirms, or falsifies that absurd theory. Some myths die hard, but it will be interesting to see if this one survives.
Come back. Ten reasons to miss him.
You know what they say about absence. Of course, it’s not saying much — this gang is making me miss the competence and international vigor of Jimmy Carter.
Jonah Goldberg is suffering from Clinton nostalgia. It’s clearly the end times.
A fake Tea Party exposed, in Michigan. They tried to pull that stunt in Nevada, too. They’re obviously running scared, and will do anything. But we’re supposed to believe that ACORN was non-partisan and on the up and up.
“You have me“:
A Labor Day schedule released by the staff of U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) indicates that while Feingold will be in Milwaukee for a Laborfest pre-parade on Monday morning, he will not be in town when Obama is expected to arrive.
…”I will stand with the president of the United States anywhere, any time, no hesitation. I’m proud of what this president has tried to do,” Feingold told the Journal Sentinel in an interview last month prior to Obama’s visit.
He forgot to add the part about “…as long as his approval isn’t dropping into the sub-basement.”
Yes, I think it is going to be different than 1994. Obama is going to make it much worse.
I think that Warren Buffett was very foolish to outsource his philanthropy to Gates.
And yes, as long as you’re asking, I do in fact think that I’d be spending the money a lot smarter, and doing a lot more good with it, than the Bill and Melinda Foundation.
Jason James Lee died. Today’s really inconvenient truth. There’s a lot more evidence that he was influenced by Gore than that McVeigh was influenced by Rush Limbaugh, or talk radio in general (which is to say, there was none for the latter). But don’t expect the press to spoil the narrative.
