  2. You should be fixing your web hosting capacities instead of reading the Dog Trainer that closely anyway. (Or did you catch that mistake only because you had extra time because your site (sight?) was down?)

  5. While it seems like nitpicking, you actually bring up an important point. The sentence could be construed as a comment that Sanchez had been irresponsible for not taking his assigned periodic rest periods.

  6. When is someone going to site this in re: Palin’s foreign policy experience:

    Then Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton foreign policy credentials in 1992 consisted of deploying the national guard of that state to Honduras for a two-week humanitarian relief op.

    By that standard, Sarah Palin is over-qualified to be veep.

  7. Ah, child’s stuff. You haven’t lived until you are on the other end of the phone and a very irate advertiser is screaming in your ear about the typo in his classified ad.

    The ad read: Divorce Sale. 1 Grandfather’s cock, like new, $200.

  8. From what I have read about this train wreck, it seems the 3 lights and bending the switch had to have some intent behind it, although it doesn’t explain the conductors actions or lack thereof.

    Now they say the engineer sent a text message 0.22 seconds before the crash. The train was travailing at 42 MPH which is 61.6 feet per second, which is 1355 feet in 22 seconds, that’s 1/4 of a mile.

    So he was texting while bending the switch.

  9. In the fog of their liberal bent the LASlimes simply couldn’t say, at the time of the crash the conductor was on a ‘brain break’.
