NBA needs shorter seasons.
Awesome. ThanksI thought they did have a shot clock. You see those old films of Bob Cousy and they look like the frames are running through the projector too fast, but apparently they were really running around like that.
Probably this was the early 1960's, though it seems like defensive stats from the era might be harder to find. This compares a lot of the great championship teamshttp://www.nba.com/playoffs2004/challenge_celtics1960.html. The 1960 Celtics for instance scored 125 ppg, but it doesn't say how many they gave up.
Girl that finked to joan said she couldn't find Scarlett or Harry all afternoon. Thats what made made joan flip out.
If the teachable moment involves Dawn taking Ginsberg to her friend's Harlem wedding, count me 100% in.It would be great if they got into advertising for Nixon '68. Could cover counter-culture vs. reactionaries from the under-covered reactionary side and wrap in Henry & Betty. The new bootlicker dude looks exactly like a Nixon campaign aide, for good measure.
I guess the idea is that Madison Avenue would have been at the social cutting edge, the people at Heinz or Dow Chemical wouldn't have been smoking pot at the office. I'm not sure if that is true.I also didn't catch on that Scarlett was skipping work to bang Harry which changes a lot of the tenor of their fight, if you got it.
Thanks. I checked out your various links and suggestions, all of which were helpful (though searching through Haaretz archives was too big a chore) and many were pretty awesome. I would give the UCLA dip who proposed the "queer state" solution to Middle East conflict honorable mention behind the Australian guy who recast Islam as that which can not be deconstructed. He is definitely going places.The Sam Harris/Glenn Greenwald fight was also awesome on an Alien vs. Predator...
Sorry. I thought this thread was about feminists not criticizing Islam. I assume you aren't saying feminists let Obama off the hook because he's a Muslim. Otherwise, I don't see the relevance. Or is Ms. Harris a Muslim? Even if that was true, I'm not sure what you mean.
It would be nice if there were some actual examples of "feminists" whose double standards we were supposed to be angry about. Lacking that it is fail.
The underlying irony of all complaints about admissions to the Ivies as the very most elite universities is that most people who want to attend them are doing so almost entirely as a means of entry to the prestige industries, but the Ivies construct their admissions policies precisely to produce a set of graduates that those industries want. If the Ivies did not produce that group, IB's/consulting/media etc. would do their entry level hiring elsewhere. Those industries...
