    MiHorn said, about 4 hours ago: “Conservative: someone (usually male) who’s never had to worry about supporting himself, i.e., had family to fall back on, never had to get a little help for an education, etc.”

    Rubbish. I know quite a few lower-middle-class working stiffs who are neither stupid nor ignorant, but could only be called conservative. Or maybe conservatively independent — working for a living in the real world gives you pretty damn good bullshit radar, and both Dems and Repubs set it off. And that’s what makes them conservative: they’re too savvy to run off after every Pied Piper that comes along

    @: — wow. You understand nothing of human nature besides your own crabbed, tiny version, or what motivates people other than your crabbed, tiny self.

    That being said, Delta is an interesting character. Maybe being a cancer survivor has given her a more mature, outwardly focused view of life. Or maybe she’s gay and Pitt simply isn’t ready for her. I’d love to see her inner life explored further.

    @desertdwlr — go back to your desert. Everyone is down on their luck sometimes, and a decent, humane, civilized onlooker pitches in to help. Not from condescension or ulterior motives, but because it’s the right thing to do. Get it?

    Perfectly normal for couples who have been together for a long time: ESP sets in.

    “Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” George Carlin, I think…a wonderfully sensible man.

    @bawana: As a retiree who had 43+ years working as a professional in an office, I have to say I feel sorry for you. If all you work for, behind a closed door,is a paycheck, if you live your life as solitary as an oyster in a tightly closed shell—I’m sorry, but that’s how you seem—then you’ve cut yourself off from the main reason to be alive: to be a part of the lives of other people, to laugh with them, cry with them, help them when they need it, and let them help you when you need it. Otherwise, you’re the walking-dead kind of person who goes through a revolving door without pushing.

    It’s not too late to change, friend—for your own sake, please try.

    No, this is a comic strip. :]

    What is it with tuna and cats, anyway? Just the sound of popping off the top of the can has my cat literally whimpering and trying to climb my leg like it’s a tree. (And he’s the one that weighs fifteen pounds, too.)

    Indeed.

    Depends what you consider a “conversation”. Well over half of human communication is non-verbal: tone of voice, facial expressions, body language and gestures, etc. You miss a ot more than you realize over the phone. (And texting is even worse; don’t get me started on tweeting.)
