    Yeah, mine too. That was the best thing in that movie.

    It costs two to five times as much to execute someone as to imprison him for life. There is no way to reduce that cost without grave risk of executing even more innocent people than we already do. If cost is your concern, then you’re for abolishing the death penalty.

    Among child sexual abusers, clergy (of all kinds) are not especially high on the list. I believe they’re seventh, after such figures as stepfather, natural father, other male relative, female relative, and so on. Not that that makes it okay. But the way the media have been covering the issue is pretty clearly distorted by a longstanding institutional anti-Catholic bias.

    Right. In point of fact, you can’t have a democracy without a confiscatory inheritance tax.

    Unbelievable. People are still debating this? Where have you been for the past forty years? It is now a matter of settled and uncontroversial history: the hippies were right.

    I don’t understand this cartoon. Why are union representatives being depicted as mafiosi? Is that the intention?

    The University of Chicago (my alma mater) does have a football team. In fact, for about forty years (ending in the 1930s) the Maroons were a force to be reckoned with the Big Ten. Not so much nowadays, hence the Firesign Theater sketch. The marching band is composed of anyone who feels like playing a kazoo. The school cheer goes:
    “Themistocles, Thucydides, the Pelponnesian War!
    X-squared, Y-squared H2SO4!
    Who for, what for, who we gonna yell for?
    Maroons!”

    I don’t know how any history teacher could ever get across things like the end of the war or the Watergate scandal without using Doonesbury as a teaching aid. And in fact, they don’t. Having talked with folks too young to remember such things, I find that their knowledge and understanding of that time is virtually nonexistent.

    I don’t know how I missed hearing that Doonesbury was going Sundays-only. That is VERY big news. Well … it was a good run.

    I’m really puzzled by this. It looks as though the cartoonist is trying to say that the president was wrong to say that cannabis is no more harmful than alcohol. But of course it isn’t. It’s not even really debatable. Why would it be wrong to say so?

    Your statistics are absurdly, laughably inaccurate. Just one bullet out of 120 fired (outside firing ranges) is used in a successful attempt at self-defense (and far more than that result in the death or injury of some trying to ‘defend’ him/herself with a gun).

    Why do you wingnuts complain about the mental-health system and always vote to defund it? Oh yeah. Because we have a mental-health crisis in this country.
