Oh gawd. So based on some other thread about feminism and 50 shades of grey, I decided to run out and get the E. L. James book. Total fail. 10 million copies in 37 countries of pure shite. Less than half the way through I started skimming for any nugget of substance. None exists. Even the erotic writing is repetitive and dull.

The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

I'm reading a very persuasive article on ForeignPolicy.com about bringing back the draft.Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
