    “Dark.”


    One of the definitions of “dark” in Urban Dictionary is that “dark” is “Considered good in some circles, with it’s opposite, light having to do with conformity and lack of integrity.”


    If this is the meaning intended by the big red-headed guy in the dark blue shirt, then he would be approving the wry or odd or mysterious meaning that the students should be “responsible” in some way for the “aftermath” of W.Bush’s war in Iraq that is “unfolding in real time”. Does the general mean “politically” responsible?

    remember when the last combat troops crossed the border into kuwait. msnbc devoted the whole night, fox news committed a sound bite.

    Is Paula Broadwell lurking among the students?

    As citizens of the US, we all bear the collective responsibility for the acts of the leaders.

    Is Colin Powell lurking amid the students as well? The white students wouldn’t know (they all look alike, right?) and the black students wouldn’t care (Collin was/is an UT to them)..

    I’d heard of Ann Coulter, but don’t recall seeing her views on things till the day after Thanksgiving, when this appeared in a column of hers in the Jacksonville, FL, newspaper:
    “To the extent Republicans have a problem with their candidates, it’s not that they’re not conservative enough. Where are today’s Nelson Rockefellers, Arlen Specters or George H.W. Bushes? Happily, they have gone the way of leprosy.”
    Utterly charming.

    “Well, you gotta admit, FL, “Adolf” is a pretty incendiary term.”

    As for yesterdays comments, I think you may be confused DT, the term “historical arsonist” was directed at Hitler and is in no way incinerary toward anyone except for Hitler himself and shouldn’t bother anybody.

    No, DT. I don’t think I see Paula there, though she did do a book tour several months ago. I remember her on the Daily Show. Jon Stewart reflected on the interview recently. He said he should have known due to her tone that there was something going on at the time.

    Is BD auditing the course or just there because it takes that long to come back to pick up his friend later or what? Moral support?

    @Gokie5

    I have heard that Ann Coulter is completely different in person, much softer than her media persona. I am sure I still wouldn’t like her, being that her views are so off the deep end…
