That was my first thought.

Then I took it as good thoughts expressed in the way of the poster. Sounded like ritual words to me, without looking it up. Maybe I'll go look it up now.

But, yeah, I sure see your point, and came thaaaat faaaar from responding the same way.

ETA that, for the record, it didn't sound necessarily Christian to me. But I sure don't think he requires forgiveness, etc.

Yip Harburg. You should know him.

On another thread, my Magic 8-Ball of a brain threw up a number from _Finian's Rainbow_, which got me thinking about Yip in general.

Not just _Wizard of Oz_.

Edgar Yipsel "Yip" Harburg (born Isidore Hochberg, Yiddish: איסידור הוכברג‎; April 8, 1896 March 5, 1981) was an American popular song lyricist who worked with many well-known composers. He wrote the lyrics to the standards "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?," "April in Paris," and "It's Only a Paper Moon," as well as all of the songs in The Wizard of Oz, including "Over the Rainbow." He was known for the social commentary of his lyrics, as well as his liberal sensibilities. He championed racial and gender equality and union politics. He also was an ardent critic of religion.

I don't think she's in trouble.

I think it will, unfortunately, be glossed over.

But, in a rational world, if she took responsibility for that server, she took responsibility for preserving and securing everything that passed through it.

There's such a thing as history and reputation.... nt

You referenced bravenak.

I take that personally. If you're her, hi. If you're not, who are you?

Lord, no, I don't really think you're her. Not her style at all.

Brave, I miss you so much.

Has Yahoo gone crazy?

Since last night, I can't change my password, and this AM I couldn't post a question about it on Yahoo. I don't see any suspicious activity on my Yahoo account. I see a few more questions like mine on Yahoo in the last 24 hours, but who knows how many questions, like mine, couldn't be posted.

So, as you see it, there's no way she can lose.

Makes baiting Sanders supporters kinda counterproductive, ya think?

.

Even if it just gets the message out, I'm satisfied.

Let me guess - you think Occupy failed...?

If that's the way you feel, that's the way you feel.

Probably nothing I can say will change it.

But ignoring one motion and letting another be decided by a voice vote that was far from incontestible looked pretty shady to me.
