Quote of the Day
“But, wait. Let me check. (Peering down into pants and then panties) Yup, there’s a vagina in my pants . . .”
It may sound odd, but the link is to a decent little rant about something in the L.A. Times. And the line is relevant to the rant.
btw, after reading Solnit’s “don’t get me wrong, some of my best friends are [castrated] males” rant-ling I got to wondering
anyone ever spot Solnit and Marcotte in the same room together?Darleen (187edc) — 4/14/2008 @ 8:29 pm
Its a great piece, Patterico. But the reference to Cathy Seipp was bittersweet.SPQR (26be8b) — 4/14/2008 @ 8:43 pm
“There’s a vagina in my pants.”
That’s a hell of a thing to confess to. She should get rid of it quickly and quietly before the police find it.nk (6b7d4f) — 4/14/2008 @ 8:45 pm
“There’s a vagina in my pants.”
Can you say that on the internet?daleyrocks (906622) — 4/14/2008 @ 8:53 pm
Here is a little piece that should warm your heart Patterico.
The Prison Snitch Industry
Guilty Before Proven Innocent
How police harassment, jailhouse snitches, and a runaway war on drugs imprisoned an innocent family
And guess what? The snitches used in that case are being used on other cases. There is evidence that snitching is an industry. Operated in prison to get criminals out of long mandatory sentences.
But I’m sure stuff like that never happens in Los Angeles. I have your word on it.
Give a man a big enough incentive to lie and most men will turn liars. Would getting 20 years of your life back be a good enough incentive?
The system is designed to subborn perjury. A subset of the drug war industry. Nothing wrong with that. I have your word.M. Simon (c12757) — 4/14/2008 @ 9:12 pm

Simple principle of economics (that dismal science we all slept through)
that you get more of what you reward, and you get less of that which you tax.
“Can you say that on the internet?”
Sure, daleyrocks. You can even be like Mr. Simon and leave a completely off-topic comment on a post, here on the Internet.
And if you have a very liberal host, your comment might even survive.
I said might.Patterico (4bda0b) — 4/14/2008 @ 9:37 pm
It certainly does, and I was going to check it out but suddenly my attention was snatched by snitches and my eyes glazed over.
So I think I might try again tomorrow.EW1(SG) (84e813) — 4/14/2008 @ 9:50 pm
any man wearing sweat pants with an elastic waistband can have a vagina in his pants if he plays his cards right.assistant devil's advocate (c1c2e5) — 4/14/2008 @ 9:56 pm
Eeeyuuuuuw.SPQR (26be8b) — 4/14/2008 @ 9:59 pm
Patterico – Thanks for clearing that up.
If you can say that, you can probably say dick.
Mr. Simon was probably just trying to be a dickhead and is likely another Balkobot.daleyrocks (906622) — 4/14/2008 @ 10:03 pm

we could be a little on the sano side, and just refer to him as a Richard Cranium, or RC, for short.
Scrolling through Mr. Simon’s blog, it sounds like he would be very much at home here. If anything, he’s more extreme than most people here.jeffrey smith (33a0bd) — 4/15/2008 @ 7:27 am
There are a number of things I agree with Simon on. The illegal status of certain “pharmaceuticals” is not one of them.
He doesn’t usually make non sequiturs like that.LarryD (feb78b) — 4/15/2008 @ 2:36 pm
