Having only read the emails - will check out the 'supposed' IMs as well -- I too find it somewhat upsetting and disgusting. It goes beyond the "mentoring" aspect of guidance and interest in future prospects of a page going into political realms. While I can understand some things -- hoping all is w...

Niner -- world politics. We "threatened" well Armitage did evidently... but take a good look -- North Korea threatens, Iran threatens, The new Al Qaeda threatens -- lot of verbal threats exist in world politics. They are verbal - - could they be backed up by action? Yes they could be, but have they...

Tuesday I took the Miata to have it washed. While sitting on a bench at the local carwash, a tall, 40-ish-appearing man in a strange, crisp uniform sat down next to me. It was obviously a brand-new uniform. The color was kahki, and the braid and trim was lime green in color. I didn't want to make m...

Thanks for defending me, Ninerism. Yes, you understand my mind. I try to come to terms with my terrors by climbing within them and expressing them to their fullest and showing, secondarily to others but primarily to myself, their homocidal absurdity. But sometimes, the terrors get me and I don't ge...

Re: House passes "Strip-Search Kids Act"

The Republican-dominated Congress has just passed a law saying that -- brace yourself -- school officials can strip search every student in their school based on the unsubstantiated tip that one of them might have a joint. There goes another attempt on that pesky 4th Amendment. No, I'm not kidding....

Over my dead, cold corpse. Thank goodness you posted this, I've now informed my children that if someone ever tries to do something like this to them, they are to stand firm, say no, and call home. Period. Knowing my children, they would have to be restrained and/or drugged before they'd submit to ...

I wonder if this law was Rep. Foley's last legislative accomplishment before he disappeared from the House of Representatives? Joe Quinn, oh, my. There is Foley, in his own mind, stripping those school boys suspected of carrying something. If left to his own mind, that is one thing, but now we are ...

Because Joe is mentally ill. But that's all right -- plenty of smart people are. In today's world, that's usually a sign of good character. But you guys really don't understand how behavior like this is of a piece with many of his other opinions expressed on this board, do you? HB3, oh, I truly hat...

When I worked at USC my supervisor had been a page in Washington, D.C. when he was younger. He said most people wouldn't believe all the Dirty Old Men who shout family values, and then skulk around trying to get the young male pages to do sexual favors for them. He was so appalled, he left and came...

Niner -- action -- thats how I would describe terrorism. Threats on a verbal level - maybe, depends on who is saying them and their ability to carry them out. Do I think Armitage might have said something to that effect -- anything is possible. The more I've read about him the more I think its poss...

It seems to me Rombaldi that the behavior of this administration immediatey after taking office and before 9/11 reminds me of ignoring the threat of Hurricane Katrina.
