Re: Maria devastates Puerto Rico

How long until we read about emergency rations of food pellets being distributed? Marly Cardoso, a professor of public health and nutrition at the Federal University of São Paulo, said it was unclear what farinata was made of. "It is not food, it is an ultra-processed product. You don't know wh...

Re: "Why do liberals keep losing the gun control debate?"

Attributing a reason for crimes already committed (whether accurately or not) is different than extrapolating that reason to the potential actions of the population as a whole. In other words, claiming that most killings are due to the ease/convenience factor is not the same as claiming that MOST PE...

Re: They admit Russia meddled

Bad analogy. It wasn't fake news. I just didn't notice the date. And it would not change my vote. But you re-posted it here (and who-knows-where else) without even checking the details. This is not personal. It's just a timely example of how (some, many?) people process the information being fed to...

Re: Weber Kettle Grills

If you don't mind a used one, they can usually be found in pretty good shape, and cheap, on Craigslist.

It's probably too late in the season for an advertised sale. But I'd think anything in stock would be marked down by now. Gotta make space for plastic pumpkins and christmas lights.
