This stands for "Of Course, It's Not As Good As You'd Find On The Coasts."

I'm offended that you'd so marginalize my name.

Sincerely,

#2 Sheppy!

#1 MadMind, suggesting that women not go to gay bars, so as to deprive him of the pleasure of hitting on them! That takes the cake! It must have been awfully uncomfortable to go to the Shamrock and have guys hit on him!

Assholes are just trying to get attention. If you ignore them they will go away. I know when I'm being an asshole I go away when I'm ignored.

You will never win an argument here. Don't even try.

You will never have the last word. Don't even try.

Nobody freakin' cares if your feelings get hurt. Don't be a cry baby.

Whatever band you like somebody will think they suck a big dick.

You will contradict yourself and then TheBookPolice or Henry Vilas will search and search until they discover your contradiction and expose you for the hypocrital idiot that you really are. Brace yourself. It's just a matter of time before this will happen.

Party On People!

Most of my favorite stuff has been by me, and even if I knew how to quote from outside of the thread I'm in, I would never be so vain as to actually re-visit some of the hilarious material that I, Narcoleptish, has added to this forum, in a thread meant to give props to other forons. Really, I would never do that. Pretty sure.

Dust Mite cracks me up too.

I agree with Ned.

Go ahead and save that one Ned. You can use it whenever you feel lonely and outnumbered here.

snoqueen wrote:A free public library may seem symbolic (and antiquated) to some, but it's more than a symbol. I like the democratic nature of a library. You see well-dressed people arrive in big SUVs, you see poorly-dressed people arrive off the bus or trudging along on foot. Everyone sits down together, everyone can use the same materials, everyone is treated the same by the librarians -- and that is not a minor point.

There's something totally fair and evenhanded about a good librarian that makes a big statement. Anybody's concern is worthy of attention, anybody's question is worth answering. Nobody can pay for a seat or service ahead of anybody else. Instead we're all paying, each according to our means, for this incredibly rich public -- that is, common -- resource.

A good library, good parks, a public basketball court or baseball diamond -- these are features of a high-quality city where each resident and guest gets a chance to enjoy what we have without owning anything in particular. People just have to show up and take turns, act right, follow a few rules. This is civic life,and there's a lot more to it than everybody just having their own Kindle.

Stu Levitan wrote:I am very disappointed to report that I was unsuccessful in getting the CDA to schedule a special meeting to reconsider our offers for the Burr Oaks properties and pay the assessed values. I really gave it my best shot, but didn't even get a second on the motion. I'm sorry, and really regret not fighting harder the first time through. I really hate living with the knowledge that after a decade on the CDA, I could fail to do the right thing on such a simple matter. I'm going to keep trying to fix this.

But most of the people on this forum have no sympathy for their victims such as Cortez.

Hm, what might the differences be?
