Rightly so. For representative government to work, government officials must be obligated to truthfully answer questions about their professional performance. Private citizens should be free to take the 5th and I hope she has every opportunity to exercise that right in that capacity.
Nice try by Pacecars, but starting 5 all played more than 40 minutes. They will be as dusted as Bulls by Game 3. Could someone help me out? I know white people are supposed to hate LeBron, but I'm a little out of the loop and I didn't get the memo. Could someone remind me why?
Basically no plot. Only character development was Peggy increasingly waking up to the fact that she is the one who should actually be in charge. Pretty great on establishing the atmosphere of fear and loathing/darkness that Hunter Thompson and Norman Mailer tells us was characteristic of the time. Crime, parental neglect, Vietnam, teen sex, bad drug trips, corporate malfunctioning and the general sense that the inmates had taken over the asylum. Genuinely disturbing. Don...
If Wade is Wade, Miami will have no problem handling Pacers, even 80% Wade will go no more than 6 games.
They say that earlier in the season, Jason Kidd was really important for swinging the ball around the arc to find good looks for the Knicks, but now he just shoots too badly to be on the court.

A veteran player known for his calm demeanor decided, for no apparent game reason, to wrap up an opponent at mid court and, then, was so enraged when the intentional foul got shook off that he had a "blackout" and attacked the opponent, getting ejected for only the second time in his 15 year career.2. A dirty coach sent the most expendable guy in his rotation to start a...
One area where we probably agree is about the negative effects of the bizarre exemption given to universities to hire as many very low paid lab techs as they want as long as they call them grad students. There is probably some way to allow anyone admitted to a graduate program on a student visa to decide to switch to a 3-year working visa if they want.
Im not interested in petro engineers at all. Other engineering disciplines across the board have 40-50% premiums over other college graduates even though the number of US engineering grads is growing, obviously suggesting the demand for trained engineers is high. Importing foreign techworkers benefits US productivity. It is contested as to whether importing foreign tech workers raise salaries of domestically trained tech workers. I certainly agree that importing foreign...
