A friend got so drunk, after he got dropped off at home, he ended up passed out in the jacuzzi. His housemates arrived later and pulled him out before he drowned. He later said he couldn't unlock the door and it was cold!
Another friend got dropped off after doing the State Street Crawl, inexplicably ended up going through a window to get in, and passed out in the LV. Lucky he didn't bleed to death.
Moral is ... get your wasted friends in the door, on the couch, and put a mixing bowl or bucket on the floor near their head.

More (pedal) power to Jason and Isaac!
I think these guys are on to something. Good stories and excellent production values as exhibited by the clips on their website.

So sad. If Chavez were one of my friends and showing those kinds of symptoms, I would have driven him home and made sure he got in the door.

"How come you never mention the Palestinian/Hamas official lack of recognition about Israels basic right to exist ..."-- italiansug
Isn't that like your wife complaining you never say she's pretty? Israel is the big gun in the neighborhood and is more than capable of defending itself (as recent sorties into Syria demonstrate). But if that isn't enough:
"The PLO recognizes the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security."

And regarding Sjovold's letter, I give him credit for explaining the reasoning behind his opinion.
That's way more than any of the regular Second Amendment commentors around here ever bother to do.

I'm always amused when I read someone stating that the second Amendment is clear as day (and that they have the definitive correct intepretation).
I don't know myself, but a little research shows its meaning has been heavily debated for a long time by Constitutional scholars, historians, politicians, etc. Even the meaning of a single word ("militia") is up for grabs.
The minute someone tells me what the Second Amendment means, without explaining their interpretation, they get no credibility in my eyes.
p.s. I know who shot JFK, but I'm not going to tell you. But go ahead and guess, I'll tell you if you're right or wrong.

Wow, Welsh definitely didn't deserve this one. One wonders what article Silverberg actually read?
Some day, a clever sociologist is going to conduct an experiment where test subjects read an article discussing Israel while their brains are being scanned. It will be interesting to see whether the emotional or rational parts of the brain light up.
