    A good allusion to A Man For All Seasons at the end of that post.

    That quote has always stuck with me... and I'm not even a lawyer. ;)

    Why try to have an effect on them? Screw 'em.

    I wouldn't hope to have an "effect" on them. Moreover, any attempt to "affect" them presupposes a certain amount of respect that I, simply put, do not...

    Really... the best thing we can all do when it comes to these worst type of attention-seeking groups and persons is to stop paying attention.

    Screw them and their small-mindedness. They don't...

    After my experiences with switching careers and job hunting the past few years... here is my opinion:

    So much of being able to land a decent job is, "who do you know?" And my guess is: white guys,...

    From his roles in movies such as Good Will Hunting and Insomnia, you could kinda tell that Williams had a close connection to the "darker" side of life. That he knew a little about those things......

    At least Bradley brings a skill to the table... namely, defense... that is super high quality.

    His shot has improved and he's young. I worry most about his health. But, I'm glad we brought him...

    Thanks for the well thought-out and well-explained post, Niner Outlaw.

    A lot of drivel that has to be cut through in here... but your analysis is worth it. ;-)

    I won't pretend to know a lot about the legal specifics surrounding this case. That being said:

    Just because the majority of people want Sterling out, doesn't mean it is legally justified to force...

    +1. Especially the Oberyn scene.

    I had to fight back a tear or two, even though I've read the books and know what is going on. Powerful and very well done.

    Could be, sure.

    Like I said earlier, the chaperons are not a monolithic group with each individual attending to details in exactly the same way. Some people are stricter than others.

    Because...

    Ha, I'm not even winded. You're entitled to your opinion, though.

    I don't think I have "rationalized"... but if you have a specific example you would like to highlight in this thread or others,...

    You obviously don't know me very well specifically... nor teachers in general.

    Even with her own photograph, she's right up against the line.

    Tough to tell if she may be raising her shoulders a little here and alligator arming it there.

    Ha. I tend to be the teacher that lets small stuff slide unless someone is blatantly over the line.

    But it's a battle that constantly has to be monitored and calibrated, though. High school kids...

    Is that some kind of rule? 10-15 minutes would have been kosher... but around an hour is patently absurd?

    Like I said: meh.

    I've never heard of a precise "policy check" at the doors of a dance...

    Meh.

    Every school has certain clothing rules/policies/expectations. Very, very few have military style "uniform checks" at the front door before you are allowed in the building.

    Rather,...
